Great Harvest Bread
Real Food. Real People.

In addition to being delicious, bread has a number of other benefits which everybody in your house can enjoy.

If you love bread then you’re going to love this post and if you aren’t bread’s biggest fan, then after reading this post you sure will be! Below is this month’s article from Great Harvest, Newtonville with some information about great benefits to enjoying bread.


Uh-oh! That’s almost a forbidden word in many circles, with most people associating eating carbs with gaining weight. However, the truth is that carbs act as a fuel for your body, meaning your body can’t run effectively if the tank isn’t full. Like all things in life, the trick is to choose wisely and enjoy in moderation. For example, if you find that white bread is too filling, look for a whole wheat alternative which not only offers its own delicious flavors but digest more slowly and help regulate your sugar and energy levels.

It’s Versatile

If you think that bread is just for sandwiches then think again! Bread can be enjoyed in a number of ways, making its versatility a great benefit and making it easier for people to enjoy. Consider:
  • French Toast
    • This is a great breakfast treat which is not only easy to make but can be used with fresh or stale bread.
  • Bread & Butter Pudding
    • If you love baking then you’re going to enjoy this treat.
  • Croutons (over salad)
    • Add a little something extra to your salad with dried bread cubes sprinkled on top, and even add a little olive oil.
  • Bruschetta or Pizza base
    • Some finely chopped tomato, basil, and a little pesto over toasted bread and you’ve got an easy bruschetta recipe.
And that’s just to name a few. In reality, bread can be used for a number of varied recipes and enjoyed in a wide range of ways. If you haven’t tried any of the above, especially the bread and butter pudding, then search online for a recipe and try it out. You won’t be disappointed!

Full of Fiber

Because there is so much choice when it comes to bread, the health benefits are many, including being a great way to add more fiber to your diet. The fiber in your diet is important for a range of reasons, including:
  • The most commonly known benefit is the boost to your digestion which can come from fiber. Fiber helps your body do what it needs to do when it comes to digestion, not only helping you to keep a regular schedule but to also feel better.
  • Bread high in flaxseed has been known to help lower blood cholesterol. As you get older, cholesterol levels become more and more important, which makes the right bread a great choice.
  • Bread can have the effect of lowering the speed at which your body can absorb sugar.  This can help your body to regulate sugar levels, preventing you from having a sugar rush before crashing and feeling tired.
  • If you are looking to eat less then bread can be a great choice. A high fiber bread in your stomach help to make you feel fuller for longer, preventing you looking for sugar snacks between meals.

It Comes at a Great Price

A big range of bread means a good range of prices, which is important to all homeowners looking to stretch every dollar in their shopping budget. Connected with the tip above, using bread in a range of meals is an excellent way to keep your shopping costs down and your family and their stomach’s happy.
