Bread Machine Rye Bread

When it comes to bread, whole grains are usually what people are looking for. This bread is 2/3 whole grains, with 1/3 white wheat and 1/3 rye. The final third is bread flour, because I think it helps the texture of the bread.

This makes a nice sandwich bread, and it couldn't possibly be easier.
