Wheat Bread v. White Bread

… one man’s opinion & your results may vary.

Obviously I’m not a health care professional of any kind, and I’m not dispensing medical advice.  We’re just talkin’ here.

If your palette tells you wheat bread lacks flavor – then who am I to tell you otherwise?

But instead of eating nutrient-low white bread, you’re probably better keeping the wheat bread.

Afterall you can easily compensate for the flavor with the contents of your sandwich.

Whatever the sandwich – there’s always some addition that can make it taste better – onions, fruit spread, cucumbers, pepper, mustard…

“Switching from white to whole wheat bread can lower heart disease risk by 20 percent,” according to research from the University of Washington reported in the April 2, 2003
issue of The Journal of the American Medical Association.

And according to Vegetarian Times, 2008 – people who choose wheat over white get fiber, vitamins B6 and E, magnesium, zinc, folic acid and chromium; none of which you’ll find in white bread.

Food for thought…
