buying breadPosted: April 6, 2010
Choosing a loaf of bread in the endless bread aisle can be confusing and downright overwhelming!
At Camp Endeavor, a weight-loss camp for kids, we stress the following:
- 100% Whole-Grain – look for the whole grain stamp and check the ingredients, the first ingredients should at least be whole- wheat
- No sugar or High Fructose Corn Syrup! (If it is in the bread, it should not be in the first 5 ingredients)
- Each slice should have at least 2-3 grams of fiber and 2-3 grams of protein – the combination of protein and fiber will help fill you up
- Extra points for All-Natural or Organic!
