Healthy Bread Goes Well With Anything

By Tom Herrin

If we get serious about our health, we strive to get good rest and exercise.  We also have a lot of concern about what we eat.  For many years, much of civilization relied on some kind of bread as an important part of meals.  Even though they may have made them from various kinds of grains, it was usually considered to be a staple and one of the earliest forms of food that was actually prepared from a recipe.  This changed dramatically once we moved into a time in which we began to rely on bread that we could purchase at a market.  

Around the beginning of the twentieth century, manufactured bread gained popularity.  It was simple to purchase and readily available.  It was also associated with some serious health issues.  The biggest of which is colon cancer.  Today we have plenty of good choices in healthy breads.

Do You Like Sourdough Bread?

Most people have tried sourdough bread in some form.  In many restaurants, this bread is a main part of some kinds of sandwiches.  It has a unique flavor that many of us can remember once we have had it.  It is made by a pretty labor-intensive process.  It results in some different outcomes in many of the ingredients.  This process helps to contribute to production of friendly bacteria that can help to improve the digestion of many carbs and gluten as well as the absorption of many nutrients.

Whole Grains Are Great

Most people know that whole grains are better for us than simply those that are highly processed.  They contain much more fiber and nutrients.  Bread that is considered to be 100 percent whole grain is one that may be a real plus in our diets.  It is often something other than simply wheat, and it can be good for those who have some other issues.  Many diabetics try to avoid bread because of the sugar content.  This need not be the case with whole grain bread.  It sometimes contains no sugar as well as fewer calories.

Let Flavor Be Important to Us

Many are convinced that, in order for something to be healthy, it should taste a little like cardboard.  Put that thought out of your head.  Find a bread that is healthy and has good flavor.  They are out there.  When you do, add it to your daily menu.  The right one will make you feel fuller for longer and serve to round your meals.
