Bread isn't the enemy people, it's also not the only thing making you fat. Ok, I'm going to say it again... Carbs are nothing to be scared of. You need complex carbs in your diet to deliver essential nutrients like fiber, enzymes, minerals, and vitamins. Many foods can be considered a complex carb, but today I want to talk about bread, as well as give you tips on choosing the right breads.
Bread can make you fat if you choose the wrong brands, and eat them too frequently. When ordering food out, many people think they are making a smart choice when choosing wheat bread or whole grain, but this isn't necessarily true. Many breads (even wheat) are packet with sugar and sodium. Here are a few tips to help your decision when shopping around.
- Pick breads with no added sugar (check ingredients the fewer the better)
- If your bread needs to be refrigerated that's good! This means the bread is most likely not loaded with preservatives.
- If you can, buy bread at a local farmers market.
- Don't eat bread with every meal. Keep it in your first two meals or after a workout ( you don't need heavy carbs at dinner).
My favorite brands:
Food for life
Local fresh bread
