People often become puzzled while choosing a loaf of bread and breakfast cereal that will offer health benefits. I would advice you to search for these brands in your grocery store. However, I want to stress that I stand to gain nothing from such recommendations and do not have any affiliation or financial connection to any of these brands or companies that I will talk about.
Joy’s Guide to help you buy Bread and Cereal
You should opt for low-calorie breakfast and bread having whole grain. You can read the labels of various brands to know if they contain sufficient amount of whole grains or not.
When you check the ingredient list of food products, search for ingredients that have the word “oats” or “whole” in them. Phrases that don’t have the word “whole” like enriched wheat flour, cracked wheat and stoned wheat may not contain whole grains at all.
While Selecting Bread: Select calorie-smart (each slice of bread that contains less than 80 calories) brands which will consist of whole grain.
Some brands belonging to this category are: Home Pride 100% whole wheat, Arnold’s Carb Counting 100% whole wheat, Pepperidge Farm 100% whole wheat, Sara Lee Soft and Smooth 100% whole wheat, Weight Watchers 100% whole wheat and Sara Lee Heart Healthy 100% whole wheat Classic.
While Selecting Cereal: At first, make sure that whole grain is present; then use this guideline for each Â¾ – 1 cup of serving:
* Less than 6 grams of sugar
* 120 calories or an amount lesser than that
* A minimum quantity of 3+ grams fiber
Some of my favorite brands are: Total, Wheaties, Special K-Protein Plus version Kashi Go Lean, Kashi Heart to Heart, MultiGrain Cheerios, Life – only the original version, Complete Bran Flakes, Barbara’s Shredded Spoonfuls, Barbara’s Grain Shop and Barbara’s Cinnamon Puffins.
