Eating Bread is good for you... right? Well, sometimes. Eating whole grain bread is good for you, giving you lots of fiber, vitamins, and minerals. But white bread is a whole different story — it's just plain unhealthy, among other things! If you're going to be eating bread, keep reading! Here are 8 very good reasons to stop eating white bread, and make the switch to eating whole grain bread instead!
1. It's Tasteless
Let's face it: white bread is just plain bland. It has no real flavor, which is why so many people like it. While it doesn't conflict with the savory taste of your meat or humble peanut butter, it sure doesn't enhance it either, the way a whole grain bread will.
2. It Won't Keep You Full
White bread doesn't contain as many parts of the grain as whole-grain does, so it doesn't have the fiber, which means when you're eating white bread, you'll be hungry again, and soon. If you're dieting, make the switch to wholesome, healthy whole-grain bread and stay fuller, longer!
3. It Contain Loads of Nasty Chemicals
If you knew how white bread was made, you'd never eat it again. Most shocking to me is that it's made with heavily processed, bleached flour. Bleach, as in BLEACH. Not something I want to eat, and not something I want my kids to eat!
