Our Story

Ground Breaking Bread was born in the first few days of 2018 on a cold January day in Portland, OR. Clare, owner and founder, was determined to eat something that was filling, satisfying, and wouldn’t be deemed a “bad idea” thirty minutes later - not wanting to sacrifice her temporarily happy stomach for foods containing, gluten, yeast, sugar, and the list goes on…

After years of traveling around Asia, Morocco, Europe and Australia, Clare decided to try to create a new version of a seemingly absent ancient tradition in American Society - breaking bread.

Across the world people of all colors, shapes, and sizes sit down with loved ones and trade stories, lessons, and life’s precious moments over a good loaf of bread. Admittedly, the American idea of bread is tainted, but the purpose of Ground Breaking Bread is to redefine the experience of breaking bread, without sacrificing our health. Most GF breads are typically made with nutrient-deficient flours and mystery additives, but Ground Breaking Bread is made from wonderfully sourced organic GF grains and organic seeds.

Most of us with food “intolerances” are sensitive to our broken food system, plain and simple; our bodies have paid the ultimate price. This type of bread redefines moments around the table or out on an adventure, bringing you a loaf that nourishes tradition, prioritizes sustainability, fuels the body, and optimizes a healthy tummy and a happy life.
