PICK THE HEALTHIEST BREADS & WHY - also where to find in #HamOnt!

Is bread healthy?

The reason I created this post was because so many people are irritated and bloated because of bread-like-products. I don't necessarily believe it is always the grain to blame. Rather, the agriculture of grain, the over-refining of grain and the processing of grain.

Hope to support your microbiome? Look for traditional sourdough, fermented sprouted flours and unbleached refined breads.

Did I just say refined?? Yes! Refined bread is easier digested because it won't contain the anti-nutrients that cause indigestion and mineral imbalance. Obviously let's not make this the main food in our diet, refined bread contains little nutrients other than carbohydrates.

Sourdough is easier for our body to digest because it is baked with dough that has gone through a fermentation process. This fermentation consumes and breaks down sugars and protein (gluten) in the flour- 'digesting' some of the bread for us, making it easier on our digestive system when we eat it.
