Oprah Would Love Rudi's Organic Cinnamon Raisin Bread

Oprah loves bread.  We do, too...but in moderation. And when we get that carb craving we reach for a slice of Rudi's Organic Bakery breads, which are about as healthy and wholesome as bread can get. Rudi's has been baking small batch breads for over thirty-five years and is the leading producer of certified organic breads in the U.S., but Everything She Wants was recently introduced to the brand at an Editor's Showcase in New York City.

Grilled apple and brie sandwich on Rudi's Cinnamon Raisin Bread.
Rudi's graciously sent us a several loaves of its yummy Cinnamon Raisin Bread, with 15 grams of whole grains and loaded with plenty of plump organic raisins and organic sunflower seeds in each slice.

The bread makes a delish sweet and savory snack anytime of the day. We love our slice slathered with crunchy organic almond butter. And Rudi's raisin bread makes great sandwiches and French toast, too.

Check out this fun recipe.
