Dave's Killer Bread
If you live in Portland and you've never had Dave's Killer Bread you must be living under a rock. It's made by a guy named Dave, who's a (everyone say it with me!) 4 time loser. His dad is the one that started NatureBake here in Portland. You can find Dave's Killer breads everywhere here, from Fred Meyers to the Farmer's Markets. It's also sold in Eugene, Canby, Vancouver(u.s.), Klamath Falls, Corvallis, and some other towns nearby. They ship 4 loaves for $24, includes shipping.

The 2 pictured here are my favorites. Good Seed and Good Seed Spelt. Spelt is an ancient grain that some people who can't have wheat or gluten can eat without any reactions. If you have Celiac disease, I think you can try it but be careful. I think i heard that it's not good for you to eat if you are Celiac.

All Dave's breads are vegan and use molasses and organic evaporated cane juice as the sweetener. The bread isn't as dense as the German bread i experienced during my year in Germany. It's almost kinda like it was given an American makeover. It's like Wonderbread and German bread had a lovechild. A really delicious lovechild.......

They're about $4-5 a loaf and if you go to the Farmer's Markets you can give them all a try before picking one. There's really nothing better than a Tofurkey Smoked Turkey sandwich with avocados and Vegenaise on some Good Seed bread...yum! When toasting i prefer the spelt version because it's more compact/dense and just has a wonderful taste when toasted and covered with Earth Balance.

I also want to give a shout out to Dave for donating his delightful bread to the Post Punk Kitchen gathering this past weekend. It was enjoyed by us all.
