Bread has gotten a bad rap recently since the Paleo and Ketogenic Diet have grown in popularity. Bread is a big no no in these diets primarily because of the carbohydrate content. But here’s the kicker – carbohydrates are your body’s primary source of energy! No, you shouldn’t eat bread at every meal but I would not suggest eliminating it entirely from your diet. At best, you should limit your carbohydrates while trying to lose weight but only temporarily.
A new bread on the scene that I highly recommend is Dave’s Killer Bread. Here are several reasons to give it a try:
- No artificial anything.
- USDA organic.
- Non GMO
- And it tastes great!
My favorite is their Cinnamon Raisin Remix Bagel. These bagels are a regular part of my breakfast routine now. Add a couple hard-boiled eggs and you have a great tasting and healthy breakfast option. Check out the nutrition:
