Quick Tips:

Use sprouted, whole grain or sprouted whole grain gluten-free bread for a healthier bread option. Alternatively, homemade sourdough or fresh, bakery-bought sourdough would work nicely as well. 

Some healthy bread brands found in most freezer or health food sections at your local grocery store are: Silver Hills Bakery, Food for Life Ezekiel Bread, Dave's Killer Bread

 


Nutritional Highlights:

Sprouted, whole-grain bread

Sprouting grains helps to de-activate the phytates found in seeds and helps to break down the starch. Eating bread with whole grains helps to increase fiber content and nutritional value. Sprouted bread has a lower glycemic index than their conventional 11 - 12 grain or sourdough counterparts.
