Picking the Right Bread

Posted By RecipeQueen

If you find free recipes that you can pair with bread, make healthy options by picking the right kind of bread. It doesn’t matter if you are trying to lose weight because as long as you eat just the right portion you are good to go. The best bet is whole wheat and others made with whole grains. These help lower the risk for heart disease and certain cancers and also promote weight loss by keeping you fuller longer. Make sure you read the label before picking anything up. Most people assume darker color bread is instantly whole wheat. Some refined breads have molasses or caramel that change their color. To get the real thing, go through the label and buy bread made from 100% whole wheat. Don’t let misleading terminology fool you, too. Words like enriched white flour mean the bread is made from white flour and even if you see multigrain or high fiber on the packaging, it does not guarantee it is a whole grain product either.
