I'm pretty sure that this was not written in reference to my love of bread, and that I am thoroughly opposed to taking Bible verses out of context but...I'm pretty sure I could live on bread alone. Recently, Udi's Gluten Free Millet-Chia Bread piqued my attention*, so I had to check it out.
Introducing Udi’s Ancient Grain Bread. Amidst the complexities of modern life, we returned to the land for inspiration. Baked with hearty ancient grains, this bread contains a wholesome balance of nutrients, vitamins and deliciously earthy flavors. Naturally gluten free, ancient grains have been providing nutritious happiness to global cultures for centuries, so grab a slice of ancient joy.

For the price, this is definitely a splurge for bread, but the nutritional stats are great. If you can't eat gluten, this definitely tastes like "real bread." And if you can eat gluten, this is just plain delicious. I loved all the textures from the millet and chia and how soft the texture of the bread was. I don't have a lot of experience with gluten free products, but I have heard horror stories of gummy or insanely dense breads and this is far from either.
If you can justify the price, either for dietary reasons or just because you like good bread, this is definitely a buy it. If price is an issue, stick with what you know and like.
*for the record, I am not on the gluten free bandwagon. I think gluten is what typically makes bread delicious and I don't seem to have any problems digesting gluten. Oligosaccharides are another story.
