What would be better for breakfast??They are both low in GI value, No added sugars, good amount of protein and high in fiber? Any pro's and cons besides that old fashion oats are cheaper?? thanks
I would assume that the only difference is that the oats have been processed futher than the Ezekial bread. Will it make a difference? Nothing that I'd be worried about. Keeping up with the Ezekial bread can take a huge GI toll on your wallet, resulting in poor bioavailibility of funds. Gastrointestinal discomfort can occur here during realization.
You're saying ezekiel bread is superior to oats?
Are you serious? Ezekiel bread has got to be more processed than oats.
If anything, it is my opinion that neither is *superior* to the other. Ezekial bread may have the slightest edge, but the difference is negligable. I can see replacing the average stop-and-shop wheat bread with Ezekial sprouted bread, but oats... I don't see what is to be gained.
Not considering cost, I'd have to say Ezekial is better. For one thing, it's got seven different grains and legumes, as opposed to just oats.
For another thing, these are all sprouted, which adds a lot to the nutritional profile. Variety of foods is always important in nutrition and this bread contains a variety of seven diff foods, as i said.
That means it's probably a more well rounded choice and i believe it's even considered a complete protein, which can't be said of oats.
In addition, you can toast it and dress it up w/ natural pb, sugar free fruit spread or apple butter, etc. One of my fav. things to put on it is an omega spread butter sub. that's rich in omega fats.
Whole wheat bread was also considered peasant bread at one time, as the wealthy classes would eat the more socially acceptable white bread.
Personally, I'm not worried at all about the historical perceptions of foods, but rather there real nutritional value in to me today. There's no denying that Ezekial bread is extremely nutritious and beneficial to bodybuilders. Oats are great, but this bread still beats it 7 grains to 1.
Can't make a tuna sandwich out of oatmeal. Tuna and sprouted grains FTW.
I agree with both of you guys. Either way, I think the best option would be to include both of them in your diet. It doesn't have to be one or the other.
