Turkey & Veggie on 7-Grain Bread

Healthy Living, Recipes, Smart Eating

I am often asked about bread products because labels can be confusing. Look for a product with the first ingredient on the label that uses the word “whole”. This ensures that you are getting all the beneficial nutrients in unrefined grain foods: the vitamins and minerals, fibers, and oils.

If you choose a grain made with refined flours, it’s been stripped of those nutrients, although they may be fortified back in, along with other additives. 

If you’re not a bread-eater at all, replacing bread, tortillas, and wraps with leafy greens is an easy way to reduce the amount of simple carbs in any recipe, and provides added veggie servings for fiber, as well as important vitamins and minerals. Leafy greens like swiss chard are known to be superfoods – those with such great health benefits that more of us should strive to eat them, regardless of whether we have diabetes or another chronic disease, are of normal weight or overweight, young or old. Greens are good sources of vitamins A, C, E, and K, as well as iron, calcium, and potassium.
