A Healthy Meal Can Include Bread

By Tom Herrin

There are lots of preconceived notions concerning what is healthy for us.  It is not all unfounded as many people have made some bad choices for years without realizing it.  The end result may have been something that simply didn't support good health as it should have.  After all, what we eat should go a long way toward enhancing our health as much as possible.  The old saying that we are what we eat holds pretty true.  When it comes to bread, once it became available in large amounts due to mass production, the health benefits seemed to be compromised.

Too much highly processed flour was believed to have contributed to an increase in colon cancer.  We have come a long way since then and have some really good products available.

Whole Grain Bread

The serious lack of fiber and vitamins led to a more concerted effort on the part of bakeries to make bread that had those important ingredients restored.  Whole wheat began to appear on many shelves and is pretty good.  In some cases, it may still be short on some of the really important nutrients.  Whole grain bread may be made from any of a variety of grains and not just wheat.  Some whole grain breads are not only full of fiber but low in sugar as well.  This can be great news for those who have concerns about this.  They also may have fewer calories than some other kinds of bread.

Sourdough Bread

Most of us have likely had sourdough bread in some form.  Many restaurants serve it with certain kinds of sandwiches or with other dishes.  It is made by a more extensive process than most other kinds.  This can allow good bacteria to play a big role and help to make the bread easier to digest for us.  It also has that unique flavor that we probably all recognize so well.  Many of the sourdough breads are low in sugar and high in protein.  This can make it a great choice for good health.

Let Bread Be Enjoyable

It seems that there are some instances in which we are willing to sacrifice flavor for good health.  We need to remember that healthy food should not be like taking bad medicine.  It can taste good and be healthy at the same time.  If it doesn't taste good to your family, keep trying until you find what you like.  There are many healthy choices out there.  Read labels and try a few things.  You will find something that supports health in a way that you want.
