The roots of San Francisco-based Bread Srsly began with the founder, Sadie, trying to create gluten-free bread to win the heart of a boy. Seriously. Thankfully, both worked out. Bread Srsly makes bread in the sourdough tradition of using wild yeast with long fermentation times to allow the culture to break down the protein and sugar structure, thereby unlocking the nutrients in the grains. Most processed bread products are made for speed and volume, and use baker's yeast with quick rising times that don't allow the grains to break down. All of Bread Srsly's products are gluten-free, vegan, dairy, egg, soy, nut, tapioca, potato, and garbanzo free - AND made in a dedicated gluten-free facility. Their products are sold at shops and cafés on the west coast, but folks that live elsewhere (like me!) can order online. I ordered the Pullman loaf on a Sunday and it was delivered on Tuesday. I placed it in the fridge and once it was cold, I sliced the entire loaf and placed in a freezer bag. I simply take a slice out from the freezer when desired. Mostly, I enjoy it toasted with some Kerrygold grass-fed butter. It's delicious with a perfect sourdough tang. One weekend morning we made open-faced egg sandwiches with bacon, cheese, and spinach - and they were amazing. My loaf was $29, which seems expensive for a loaf of bread, I know. However, this is the only type of bread or grain I've consumed over the past few months; plus, I got around 28 slices out of this large loaf, so it's lasted well over a month. Paying about $1 per slice to enjoy some sourdough bread I can actually eat is totally worth it. Think about how much you pay for that at a restaurant - or your muffin at Starbucks.
