I am so tired of hearing about the evils of carbs. Can we please stop clumping all carbohydrates into one big nasty pile. There are healthy proteins and proteins loaded with saturated fats. There are certain kinds of sugars that are essential for energy and recovery while others make your butt big. Small amounts of some cheeses add tons of favor and can be part of a healthy diet, while too much mozzarella on your pepperoni pizza is slow suicide. I want to take out the guess work when it comes to good carbs vs. bad carbs. Bread gets a bad rap because it has risen to the top as the king of bad carbs. This is crazy because Wonder Bread & Julian Bakery Bread (for example) have almost nothing in common. Plain old white Wonder bread has only trace amounts of fiber and is made with refined white flour. It's birthday cake without the frosting.
One slice of Julian Bakery protein bread AKA Wonderful Bread has 8 grams of fiber and 10 grams of protein. One slice! That is awesome! The organic ingredients are ground whole grains of wheat, oats, rye, corn, brown rice, millet, sunflower seeds, flax, sesame, poppy, pumpkin, pinto beans, honey, yeast, & sea salt. This is beautiful whole grain healthy food essential for digestion, energy and brain function. Refined white bread is a close cousin to candy bars. When you order that bagel at the corner deli, know that you've just purchased a "bad" carb. When you spread a little fruit preserve on your toasted Wonderful Bread you've selected a very good carb.
Whole Foods Grocers has a great selection of whole grain breads. If you don't have a health food store in your area then contact The Julian Bakery out of La Jolla California. They ship anywhere in the country. Special order the bread to your local market. This is rarely a problem.
