Whole wheat bread recommendations?

Every now and then I try to make the leap from white bread to whole wheat, usually end up with a bread that tastes syrupy sweet, and then go running back to white bread. Sure, I could just try a bunch on my own, but I hate paying $3 for a tiny loaf of bread that I don't like but feel guilty throwing out. I'm looking for a name brand recommendation for a bread that:

* Isn't Pepperidge Farms (don't like the density of their breads)
* Isn't sickly sweet
* Has 2-3g fiber and <80 calories per slice
* Doesn't taste burnt

Thanks in advance!

I like fiber for life. It has 35 calories per slice and 3 grams of fiber per slice. I have been eating it for about a year now, i really like it.

I buy Barowsky's organic breads-lower in sodium than many others on the market, no high fructose corn syrup, and high in fiber (but they are usually around 100-110 cals a slice though).

Also good Freihofer Family grains series-look for the 100% whole grain ones AND read labels carefully some have HFCS and some don't. High in fiber-2-4 g and about 70 cals a slice.

On more of a local level-I live in NH and occasionally find Matthew'sAll Natural Bread (Company) (made out of Lowell, MA) in my regular grocery stores and it's low cal, high fiber, low sodium, no HFCS, 100% whole grain AND only $1.99!!!!!!!! can't beat that!

i like sprouted wheat breads that you can find in the freezer section. the other poster mentioned Food for Life. 3 grams fibre, 80 cals, .5g fat. this bread is made with grain sprouts as opposed to flours.

my favorite freezer-section brand of sprouted grain bread is Shiloh Farms. YUM.

as for bread-aisle breads, i avoid those with HFCS. i like Matthew's (other poster mentioned) and VT Bread Company.

OP here

Thanks - I picked up a loaf of Matthew's All Natural and it's exactly what I was looking for. Living in Manhattan, however, it was nowhere near $1.99 though (not that I thought it would be).

As sprouted grain versions...guess I'll need to look into the benefits, because at the moment, anything "sprouted" makes me think of old potatoes.

Another suggestion, even though you've already purchased...

Oroweat Light Whole Wheat Bread

Two slices has 80 calories, 1 gram of fat, 18 carbs, 7 grams of fiber, and 4 grams of protein.

It makes really good sandwiches, and I like that it's so low in calories because I hate "spending" so many just on the bread. :)

Bakers wheat bread

I love bakers wheat bread, it is amazing, and if you want to do a wrap with wheat do tomas wheat wraps either in your bread section of the grocery store or the deli section.

Matthew's All Natural Whole Wheat Bread

This used to be excellent bread until it was bought out by a venture captilist firm that is creating a monopoly on "natural" and organic mass-marketed breads by buying Matthew's, Vermont Bread, Rudy's, and The Baker, so far.

Now the Matthew's bread has twice as much air in it including big holes (I wonder if the weight on the package is still legit), added "natural flavors" to make up for all the air, and they bag it so soon after it comes out of the oven that it gets lots of condensation in the bag. All that water causes it to mold almost as soon as you get it home. If you try to freeze it, the excess water causes the slices to stick together so they break when you try to separate them. Since it's sliced while it's still hot and soft, the slices are very uneven.

The company has... unlisted all the phone #'s of the bread companies they bought and their corporate headquarters, and scoured the Internet to make sure not a trace of the numbers remain. When you send a message to Matthew's Bread via their online form, you get no response. They HATE their customers--apparently we're the enemy. I suggest buying freshly baked bread from the bakery of your local natural foods store. These jerks don't deserve to succeed in a bad economy when we're all trying to get value for our money.

I second the Orowheat Light!

I love this bread. 80 cals and only 1 Point for Wt Watchers value. Spread with I Can't Believe It's Not Butter Light and you only have 2 points total!

There's always been a strange cognitive dissonance about ads on uniforms. Professional sports leagues have operated for decades under the creative fiction that advertising on uniforms is some sort of infringement on aesthetic purity NFL , a sentiment that's as laughable as the idea that college athletes don't deserve a share of the billions they generate. The truth, of course, is that every uniform already allows advertising in the form of the manufacturer's logo Up to 50 off low price jerseys . (You could argue that the uniforms themselves are advertisements for the NFL Shop, and vice versa, but that's going down a symbologic rabbit hole we can leave closed for now.)

Consider a few facts: most major sports already allow advertising on their uniforms. Soccer teams around the world, including the United States Arizona Cardinals Jersey , proudly sport the logos of their chief sponsors. NASCAR teams and drivers are so associated with their sponsors that fans often refuse to buy competitors' brands Carolina Panthers Jersey . Golfers have sport the logos of high-end companies on their shirts and bags as well as their visors. Most notably for the purposes of this discussion, most teams already allow ads on practice jerseys, as you can see from these photos from the last couple days:

Plus, NFL Europe (RIP) allowed ads on uniforms Denver Broncos Jersey , like you can see here with Kurt Warner:

Or here in a scrum:

NBA Commissioner Adam Silver estimated that ads on NBA uniforms could bring in $100 million a year. That's money that other New England Patriots Jersey leagues are simply leaving on the table. Consider the fact that NFL uniforms have far more space available for ads--you could show IMAX movies on some guys' shoulder pads--and the fact that regular-season Seattle Seahawks Jersey games outdraw the NBA Finals ratings-wise, and you're looking at far too much cash for the NFL to turn away too much longer.

It comes down to a simple proposition Green Bay Packers Jersey : are you really going to stop watching the NFL because 's sporting a Dunkin' Donuts patch on one shoulder? Of course not.

One key, of course, is matching the right sponsor with the right team. The NFL will have its say in advertiser selection Kansas City Chiefs Jersey , to avoid some Texas offramp strip club sponsoring the Cowboys or some Bay-area pawn shop hooking up with the Raiders. You'll be looking at multi-year agreements; this won't be like NASCAR, where advertisers can switch from week to week and certain unfortunate cars might run without ads at all Pittsburgh Steelers Jersey . Dozens of companies are willing to spend millions for 30 seconds of Super Bowl ad time; you think there won't be a line out the door to buy three hours' worth?

So, yes, ads are coming to Wholesale Jerseys 2016 uniforms. Maybe not next year, but soon, and for the rest of our viewing lives. At least we can take heart in the fact that we won't be watching, say, the Citibank Giants play the Coca-Cola Falcons. Yet.
