Quick health tip: The secret to good bread

September 3, 2014

Don’t be fooled by the pretty words “honey wheat” or “golden oat” in the bread aisle. If the first ingredient listed on the package doesn’t say “whole wheat flour,” you won’t reap all the benefits of this healthy grain.

There are three good reasons that 100% whole wheat has the upper hand to white bread. It contains:
• more protein,
• more fiber, and
• less processing.

This simple switch could make a huge difference in your:
• satiety (you’ll feel fuller so are likely to eat less), and
• digestive system (which could reduce bloating and irregularity).
