Why does sourdough seem to be an exciting alternative to our standard bread options?

Hello everyone,

Have your tried last weeks Sourdough roll yet?

Like most of us I have a busy daily lifeSalad Roll by Sandy Bröcking_Think Smart & Lose Weight and in many situations I found that a salad sandwich or roll is a fantastic, healthy and low calorie option. Despite that fact, I try to cut down consuming bread to a minimum and only when I have no better options because bread is still processed food.

Rather than with our western diet standard overconsumption of processed breads I think eating plenty of vegetables and fruits, natural starches (potatoes or rice) and legumes are certainly a much better option.

As for the choice of bread I usually always prefer a wholemeal option or perhaps Sourdough might be a pretty good idea too.

I learned that:

  • Sourdough is a very old traditional style of bread making and most likely originates from Ancient Egyptian times around 1500 BC.
  • It is made in a long fermentation process by using naturally occurring lactobacilli and yeast.
  • Standard breads on the other hand are made with a cultivated form of yeast, additives and processing aids.
  • Sourdough bread is known to be easier digestible.
  • Sourdough bread is known to have more nutritious and due to the making process vitamins and minerals are easier absorbed by our body.
  • Sourdough bread doesn’t cause the in our western diet common insulin spikes that we all want to avoid.
  • Sourdough is more filling and therefore we eat less.

Well, considering these facts I think that if it comes to eating bread Sourdough is an exciting option.

Remember though; don’t over eat bread and cereals. If you do eat them make sure to keep the bread amount low and the “salad mountain on top high!”

Please take care of your body – it’s worth it!
