100% Whole Wheat Slice of Bread

You probably have heard from someone that is going on a “bread strike” or “carb abstaining” diets with the hope to lose weight and become healthier. The truth is, though, that bread could be healthy depending on which one you chose. If you eat white, refined, processed bread we agree you should stay away from it. It is made of highly-processed (in other words a process that gets rids of key nutrients), simple carbohydrates (in other words you are getting a quick energy surge that will crash you later and make you eat more). Now, if you consume 100% whole wheat bread, that is a different story.

100% Whole wheat bread is rich in iron, calcium, fiber and protein. Whole wheat bread is also a good source of magnesium and selenium minerals. Whole grains provide energy for longer and make you fuller (as they do have fiber). With our menus, we are following the United States recommended balanced diet which includes consuming grains. 100% whole wheat bread is a great way to get some grains into your diet plan.

Do watch out in the label of the bread to explicitly say “100% whole grain”. Otherwise, if it is “enriched”, “bleached”, “unbleached”, etc that means you are not getting all the nutrient benefits the 100% whole wheat bread offers. The same goes for multi-grain bread. If the grains are refined, it means you are not getting all the nutrients those grains have to offer.
