Read those food labels


 

We all know that adding more whole-grain products into our diet is beneficial for numerous reasons.  The mistake a lot of people make however, is they think all wheat breads are created equal.  A lot of these wheat breads found in the supermarket are actually made with white flour.  You aren’t getting any of the whole-grain benefits from eating these.  When selecting a bread, read the labels and always be informed about what you’re getting.  Breads that have the word “whole” grain listed as the first ingredient, like white whole wheat, whole oats, or whole wheat is what you want.  If the label doesn’t say whole, forget about it.
