Ezekiel unless you want to sprout/grind your own flour.

Ezekiel bread tastes like cardboard that had a hose turned on it and was then baked. It is healthy though, as are most sprouted whole grain breads you'll find in the hippy section at the grocery store. With that said, if you're only eating a couple slices a week just get whatever wheat bread you like that tasted good and is minimally processed. I like Dave's Killer Bread lite.

Get wheat-free flour and make you own. Pretty easy to do.

the normal orange label ezekiel bread has soy in it. you have to buy the red label 7-sprouted grains one to get it without soy. sprouted bread usually tastes like crap out of the fridge, but gets a much nicer/fluffier texture when toasted.

sprouted manna bread is also good, but its really sweet and more like a cake. http://www.mannaorganicbakery.com/

It's usually a good idea to find gluten free versions whenever possible. But, yeah, basically what others have said above.

If you are in the UK, Sainsburys do a nice gluten-free seeded loaf. I don't think it's exactly health food, but it's free of most of the nasty stuff.

Sainsbury's Freefrom Soft Brown Seeded Bread 400g

Ingredients:
Water, Tapioca Starch, Rice Flour: Rice Flour; Potato Starch, Sunflower Oil, Sunflower Seeds (4%), Linseed (3%), Yeast, Psyllium Husk Powder, Millet Grain (2%), Humectant: Glycerine; Black Treacle, Stabiliser: Hydroxypropyl Methyl Cellulose; Dried Egg White, Poppy Seed (1.5%), Maize Flour, Salt, Maize Starch, Rice Starch, Caramelised Sugar Syrup, Preservative: Calcium Propionate.

I am badly gluten allergic and dairy can get to me too if I eat a lot of it.

I personally used to go anywhere near substitute foods because I thought they would be pretty rank. Sometime in the first half of last year, I was in Sainsburys and decided I would give the gluten free white bread a shot, not expecting much. It's actually really good stuff - white, brown, seeded etc and Sainsburys brand as well as the 'Genius' brand stuff. Sainsburys white rolls are fucking awesome too, I think they are better than the normal stuff. Their spaghetti is also really, really good... it's made from corn and rice and you wont even notice a difference. I have found ASDA's wheat-free pasta to become very flakey/floury when cooked but Sainsburys' spaghetti - which is the only wheat-free pasta stuff I have tried from them - is awesome.

This is a recipe page I started trying a few things off of recently...

Not really what you are looking for by the sounds of your post, but the banana bread is fucking awesome. I usually substitute half the butter and all the vegetable oil with coconut butter and I am thinking about switching over from normal sugar to fructose.

Might be an idea to follow the pizza base recipe from that site and just add a tonne of healthy ingredients over it. I did that, and it's excellent.

Some people don't want to consume wheat gluten even though they're not allergic to it because they read some alarmist article in men's health too. I mean, do what you want but if you think a few slices of bread with a small amount of soy in is the reason for your man boobs and small wang.... ;)
