“It’s just bread!”
That’s what I used to say…
Now, I know there’s a world of difference!
White bread is usually made from white flour, which quickly turns into (refined) sugar in the body. Refined sugar fuels cancer growth and triggers inflammation.
100% Whole Wheat bread (especially 100% Whole Grain bread), on the other hand, is filled with phytochemicals and antioxidants — and packed, naturally, with B & E vitamins, along with magnesium, iron and fiber.
It’s really important when you pick a wheat bread that it says “100% Whole Wheat” or “100% Whole Grain”, watch out for phrases like:
- seven grain,
- bran, and
- stone ground.
Even if a bread is brown, it doesn’t mean it’s 100% Whole.
Here’s to eating what’s what best for you, and your body!
