WIAW: Flax Edition

Well, after a streak of countless intuitive eating related posts and absolutelyย noย recipes posts (sorry about that!), it’s finally looking like A Dash of Meg is a food blog again! ๐Ÿ™‚

I hope you’ve enjoyed the three recipes I’ve shared with you already this week. Please let me know if you try any of them! I’m always excited to hear from you (which reminds me – have you emailed me your High Five Friday submissions yet?)

For today’s What I Ate Wednesday I will be reviewing one of my favourite products that I eatย everyย singly day (and that’s no lie!)

Food For Life’s Ezekiel Flax Bread! ๐Ÿ™‚


Food For Life was kind enough to send me two loaves of their flax bread after reading about how much I love bread! Especially a nice crunchy, hearty bread ๐Ÿ˜‰

Prior to trying Ezekiel 4:9 Flax bread I had only tried their Original Sprouted Whole Grain bread. I love the original, but the flax version is much heartier, so I love it that much more! ๐Ÿ™‚

It’s the perfect breakfast bread to use for soaking up the yolks of my perfectly fried dippy eggs!


But, it’s also the perfect bread to use for sandwiches!

I’ve recently enjoyed egg and salsa sandwiches


As well as chicken, avocado, and spinach sandwiches!


with whole grain Dijon mustard too of course ๐Ÿ˜‰

I’ve been loving and eating bread so much lately that I even went as far as comparing Ezekiel 4:9 Flax bread to Silver Hill’s Bakery Mack’s Flax bread one morning side by side at breakfast.


It was hard to compare the two breads as they are both incredibly delicious and hard to differentiate; however, the one difference I did find was that the Silver Hills version of flax bread was slightly denser than the Ezekiel 4:9, which was slightly fluffier.

Overall, both breads are well worth trying! The two companies are wonderful and I loved partnering up with both! ๐Ÿ™‚

Do you like flax bread? Have you tried either of the breads I reviewed in this post?

What is your favourite type of sandwich?

Thanks for hosting WIAW, Jen! ๐Ÿ™‚


See you tomorrow!

    I’ve not tried flax bread and unfortunately we don’t have those bread brands here in Australia. My current sandwich recipe obsession is one I read about on roadtord.wordpress.com where she microwaves an egg for 30 seconds in a mug, breaks up some string cheese and mixes it in, then microwaves again for 30 seconds. She had hers with avocado but I’ve been having mine with relish and it is delicious! ๐Ÿ™‚ (A benefit of starting my new Trial Tuesdays recipe trials is all the delicious new recipes I’ve found)

    Where do you buy the Ezekiel bread? I’ve looked for it in London and couldn’t find it!

      They sell it at Whole Foods or any health food store! Even my local neighborhood grocery store sells it, it’s usually in the freezer bread section.

      Yes, I can find it pretty much anywhere ๐Ÿ™‚ like superstore, loblaws, etc.

    I’ve never tried flax bread, but it looks good! I love bread that has itty bitty bits of stuff in it (seeds, grains, etc.) so this looks right up my alley. LOVE runny yolks with bread, by the way. Such a fantastic combination.

    I haven’t seen the flax variety, but just got brave enough to buy the original Ezekiel bread. I’ve been Gluten phobic , so avoided…but I’m tired of avoiding things that might not be so bad afterall. You give me courage to try it ๐Ÿ™‚
    I struggle with grains since I don’t exercise and it feels like I don’t deserve them. I hate this constant battle and confusion over what to eat. I just want someone to tell me a meal plan each day…so I don’t have to …think.
    It’s mentally exhausting. I wish I could find a dietitian that understood or that I could click with, but I’ve had no success and only bad experiences with them ๐Ÿ™ Let me know (seriously) if you have a recommendation for one to try. I have only reached dead ends.

    Mmm I’ve got to try an egg and salsa sandwich! I think my absolute favorite sandwich is good old grilled cheese, though to be honest, I’m not sure I’ve really had a sandwich I didn’t like. What can I say, I love bread! ๐Ÿ˜‰

    Nothing beats a good sandwich and one of my favorites is: Prosciutto, Fresh Mozzarella, Pesto, on a Ciabatta Roll. It’s from a local deli and it’s DIVINE…only once in a while though. LOL! I have 1 loaf of the Ezekiel 4:9 in my freezer. Great brand!

    Do you have two different brands of eggs there too? One yolk is so much more orange!

    Food for Life’s Ezekiel bread, English muffins, rolls, and tortillas are everyday staples with me! I have an intolerance to wheat, and I have absolutely no reaction to their products. They really fill me, and I love that they are a complete protein!

    I’m a big fan of the Ezekiel line, especially the cinnamon raisin – it’s great with eggs!

    I had never tried ANY of the Ezekiel breads until I was asked to review the new flax kind, and I absolutely adore it. After working my way through an entire loaf, I’ve been rationing the rest–although I know I can always buy more if I need it. ๐Ÿ™‚

    Can we please talk about how beautifully ORANGE that yolk is???
