100% Whole Wheat Bread

Mmmmm…bread.  I love it!  But if you do some label reading in the store, you’ll find that it is really hard to find bread products out there without icky things in them.  Its rare to find them without high fructose corn syrup, partially hydrogenated oils, artificial preservatives, or other refined sugars [among other things!].
