After getting tired of plain old toast with peanut butter, I decided it was time to mix things up. That’s when I came up with this wonderful breakfast treat. When looking for a healthy bread here are a few pointers I go by. Just a little education on whole grain vs multigrain. When something is labeled “whole grain” it means it was made out of the entire wheat grain kernel. The whole grain is where all the good nutrition content is held. Don’t be tricked by terms like multigrain, if the multigrain bread does not say whole wheat, then it basically has the same nutritional value of white wonder bread. So, don’t be afraid of the overwhelming bread isle, from the cracked wheat, stone ground, whole grain, multigrain, 9-grain, etc….. Simply look at the ingredients. If the first ingredients is “whole wheat”, you are going to be okay. It is usually less processed than most of the other brands. Most nutrition is lost during the processing of the wheat, so go for the whole wheat.
