Eating Well: Very Lazy Berry Bread

I decided to celebrate hitting my halfway mark yesterday by making dessert.  Specifically, I made a berry-laced bread from a recipe on a cooking web site I follow:  Cooking Comically.  It’s not at all optimized for weight loss, but the calories turned out not to be too bad at all.  So first, go have a look at the recipe:

In total, if you make it exactly as described, the entire loaf comes out to 2663 calories.  That sounds like a lot, right?  But the mix comes out to about 21 ounces (based on my rough estimates from one slice), so that’s only 126 calories per ounce – which sounds steep, but it’s only about 50% more per ounce than the 100% whole wheat bread I normally eat as a sandwich.

In my opinion, a serving size is about 3 ounces – 378 calories.  Budget accordingly, but it’s well worth it.
