Calling all bread lovers!

I am almost out of bread and hoping to buy some more at the store tonight. Here’s the deal: I have been using the same kind for a while now (Healthy Life soft style 100% whole wheat) so I’m getting a little burned out by it and also it doesn’t match up nutritionally to what I usually prefer my breads to have, mostly in that it doesn’t have enough fiber (only 3 g for 2 slices). But it’s been on sale so I’ve justified it until now.

Here are my requirements:

  • No HFCS
  • At least 3g fiber per slice (not per 2)
  • Less than 100 calories per slice
  • 100% whole wheat/grain
  • Not too expensive (like under or around $3)

Can you help me?

Leave a comment with your favorite store-bought bread even if it doesn’t meet the above, I just want to know 🙂

  3. Here’s my ultimate fav: http://arnold.gwbakeries.com/product.cfm/upc/7341002567

    It’s delish – whole wheat with a slight honey tone to it!

  4. I don’t eat much bread, but I buy Healthy Life High Fiber Bread.

    Per slice: 35 cals, 0 fat, 2 gr fiber, 2 gr protein.

  5. What are your thoughts on teens counting calories and worrying about weight. Or should they just eat healthy.

  6. Hi Alex,

    I’m not an expert, so I think the best thing for a teen would be to talk to their parents and a doctor. But I will give you my opinion.

    Since teenagers are still growing people and not yet adults, I don’t think calorie counting is the best idea. However, when I was a teenager, I only ate junk food and fast food, so that is not good either.

    I think a teen’s focus should be on healthy eating, lots of grains, protein, fruits & veggies and also to exercise in fun ways like playing sports or walking/jogging. Definitely decrease the amount of television and video games, which makes kids sedentary and more likely to sit on the couch with unhealthy snacks.

    If a teen were overweight or obese though, I would be concerned but definitely get recommendations from a doctor first before calorie counting or changing anything. Hope that helps.

    Thanks,
    Sarah
