Have your tried last weeks Sourdough roll yet?
Like most of us I have a busy daily life 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!”
