David Dodge from the Grateful Bread

David Dodge was a pioneer in the art of baking healthy bread. He introduced the concept of stone ground bread to Miami over a decade ago.

Baking bread was not something he planned to do until he read a book called Nutrition and Physical Degeneration by Weston A. Price. The book explains that disease has its origin in malnutrition. He began to understand that the bread we eat today is nutrient deficient. That Refined white flour is basically empty calories and steel milled commercial whole wheat flour is not much better, because steel mills destroy the structure of the grain.

Bread has been a staple food for thousands of years, it didnt make sense to Dave that so many people today are celiac or gluten sensitive. He discovered that part of the reason that people cant eat wheat is because of the steel milling process.

So Dave bought his first stone mill and started baking stone ground bread bread. He opened his store, the Grateful Bread. Since then he and Catherine have helped thousands of people who have walked through their doors. His bread transformed the lives of many, helping people with autism diabetes, and gastrointestinal problems.

Dave was a wonderful friend and mentor. He passed away last week at the age of 74.

Quotes from Dave: 1. You are what you eat so don’t eat fast, easy, or fake. 2. There is absolutely no substitute for the best. Good food cannot be made of inferior ingredients. Come and try a loaf of bread from grateful bread. 3. Let your food be your medicine and your medicine be your food. 4. It's simple. If it doesn't go bad, I don't eat it

David's memory will live on as we continue baking bread in the healthiest way possible, the way he taught us- stone ground.
