White or Wheat?

As I have said on here before, I love some white bread, but it is bad for your health and weight. People, we really do need to watch what kind of bread we eat. There are so many people and experts out there that say never to eat bread, but sandwiches are delicious. I love them. Here are some things that you need to look out for when buying bread at the store. You know the best option is to make your own bread.

THE GOOD STUFF
 Though the authors of Rich Food, Poor Food believe bread should be avoided, we understand bread is often unavoidable. Steer clear of the worst stuff by looking for breads made with whole grains. The first ingredient should be either “100% whole wheat” or “100% whole grain” to make sure you’re getting the healthiest option.





THE BAD STUFF

If the first ingredient is “wheat flour” or “enriched bleached flour,” then white flour was mostly used
rather than whole-wheat flour.
