No-knead artisan bread is incredibly easy to do, and doesn't require the time and delicate touch that kneaded bread does.

I guess this all misses the point...that another reason crepitus' post was ignorant is that bread is not a health food to begin with.

You can buy an entire chicken for a reasonable price, roast it and eat if for couple days and then make soup out of the carcass. It's a very economical meal. They sell huge half turkey breasts at our grocery store. I can feed 4 people with that. Frozen veggies are cheap and healthy.

And, a 10lb bag of flour at Walmart is $2.24. There are 34 cups of flour in a 10lb bag. An avg loaf of bread is about 3-4 cup. You can make 8-10 loaves of bread with flour, water, a small amount of yeast, salt and a bit of shortening. I have a 2lb pouch of yeast in my freezer. You can make bread for pennies. It really isn't that hard when you get the hang of it.
A 2lb pouch of yeast is 32 oz. Those yeast packs are 2 1/4 teaspoons = 0.25 ounces. This pouch is the equivalent of 128 of those small yeast packets they sell at the store.
And warm freshly baked homemade bread is just plain yummy, whereas grocery store bread is blah.
