All about White Bread...


How to know if "White Bread" is Healthy vs. Not




Classic white bread is a tricky one. There are a lot of unhealthy, corn syrup added, sodium packed, "I don't know what the heck is in this", brands of white breads. I wish I could give you some riveting advice on 10 different healthy classic white bread options but truly there is not a lot out there. (Unless it is homemade at a fresh bakery!)


Sprouted grain breads, sour dough breads, rye breads, etc are a different story. Which we will go over in another weeks post. This week I am talking about true "white breads".


Here is my tip! Use this guide of "Healthiest", "Healthier", and "Don't Buy" when going to the store. I hope this gives you some visuals on what to look for in the daunting bread section!
