Whole Wheat Bread and recipe to use it all up

So you have decided to eat healthier. That is awesome but some of the choices along the way may be complex. Take for instance bread, wheat bread is meant to be better for the body but which one to select?? There are a number of different  brands, colors and prices in the bread aisle. Take for instance all the names that are present in the wheat bread world

  • 7 Grain
  • 10 Grain
  • 12 Grain
  • Healthy Multi-Grain
  • Wheat
  • Cracked Wheat
  • Split Top Wheat
  • Whole Grain White
  • 100% Whole Grain
  • 100% Whole Wheat
  • Honey Wheat
  • Honey Whole Wheat
  • Honey & Oat
  • Oatnut
  • Health Nut

So many choices and yet which one are you to choose?? There are some things you do not want to find when reading the ingredients of the product Some of these include
  • main ingredient of bread being enriched bleached flour
  • high fructose corn syrup as one of the top 4 ingredients listed
In addition the terms "whole wheat", "whole grain" and "whole grain white" don't mean anything So buying whole grain or whole wheat to us helps us feel like we are doing something good but taking a look at the label some barely meet the minimum. Don't simply buy the 100% whole grain labeled bread as the bread could be made up of bleached white flour. However, breads that carry the label 100% whole wheat is the one to go for. 

When you finally find that wheat bread you trust be sure to use it all up Here is a great recipe to help make sure none goes to waste. 

9 cups of left over whole wheat bread chopped into bite sized pieces. (the end pieces are great too)
1 cup of coconut milk
2 cups of almond milk
1 cup of Sucanat sugar  Buy Sucanat online to save money
