Eating Clean Day 3--Homemade Wheat Bread

Breakfast--two spoonfuls peanut butter
Mid-morning snack--nothing 
Lunch--salad with shredded cheese, walnuts and 1 T. Caesar dressing
Afternoon snack--handful almonds
Dinner--Meatloaf (everything natural but the saltine crackers), oven chips (slice up potatoes, add some EVOO and salt and bake for 45 minutes at 425) and corn...the ketchup and saltine crackers in the meatloaf were the only non-natural ingredients.

Bedtime snack--nothing
Workout--P90X Kempo X

I was shocked at how many preservatives store-bought 100% whole wheat bread has! So, we are on a mission to find a really good whole wheat bread recipe. Here's the second one we've tried...we keep finding that the bread comes out really dense. Any suggestions or good recipes you use? I did find all-natural whole wheat bread at Kroger, but it was $3.99 :/ The homemade bread I figured out is about $2 a loaf.

Whole Wheat Bread

4 cups whole wheat flour
2 packages Active dry yeast 
2 tsp salt
1 1/2 cup water 
1/4 cup milk
3 tbsp butter
1/4 cup honey (we used agave)

1/2 cup wheat bran (we used rolled oats)

1. Place all the wet ingredients in the bottom of the baking pan of your bread machine. Add the flour and wheat bran/rolled oats and then the yeast on top.
2. Follow the directions on your machine for whole wheat bread.
3. Remove from machine when done and allow to cool on a baking rack for at least one hour.
4. Slice and enjoy!
