Should You Be Eating Bread?
Bread, is pretty much ubiquitous in the world and in the USA, the government recommends a fair amount of this in your diet but should you actually eat it?
My straight forward answer is NO! Why? Well, if you compare the calorie for calorie from bread to most other veggies and fruits you are going to have a significant difference in fiber, micro nutrients (minerals), and quantity of food .
One slice of bread is about 110-120 calories and remember, bread is a process to make. Broccoli for example to have the equivalent amount of calories would be about 2 cups of broccoli and about 3 1/2 to 4X more Fiber!
Final thought, if you really want a healthier life and body, eat more fruits and veggies. I am not totally anti-bread, especially if it is going to keep you on track but calorie for calorie, gram for gram, pound for pound, bread is inferior to raw or cooked fruits and veggies. Not to mention fruits and veggies have anti-oxidants and can play a major role in healing and reducing inflammation.
