Explore the enticing world of healthy eating with a range of delicious breakfast breads.
If you change one thing this year, change the type of bread you eat.
Theres a reason why supermarkets pump the smell of freshly baked bread through in to the entrance area... because it smells simply irresistible.
For those of us whos middle sections have swelled a touch over the Christmas season the promise of a healthier 2013 is usually a half baked promise. Making a big lifestyle change can be a daunting challenge. So, if its already becoming hard work perhaps just try changing one thing... the bread you eat. Most of us gobble down a couple of quick slices of toast and jam on our way out the door without sparing a thought for the quality of the rushed breakfast weve just eaten.
Youd think that you can eat quite a bit of bread without piling on the pounds, especially when you consider that the average slice in around 100 calories... so if a woman can eat up to 2000 calories a day, thats 20 slices of toast... enough to feed a football team! But, with bread, its not the calories but the number of carbs.
Experts recommend that carbs are best eaten at breakfast time. When you have the rest of the day to burn them off and so a nice toasted fruit bun or wholemeal bagel is the perfect start to the day.
Home appliance manufacturers like Morphy Richards are noticing that people these days are not only buying those posh looking 2 and 4 slice toasters that you see around but they are also buying home breadmakers. It seems like the ability to control the ingredients in your daily bread has moved from being just a trend to a normal part of peoples everyday eating habits.
Modern breadmakers have a vast number of programs and settings to allow you to produce just about any bread you want, from the family favourite granary loaf to a super healthy Spelt bread and with modern thick and thin toasters you can toast any exciting shape or size to precisely your own taste. Many even have a timer setting so you can wake up to your own fresh baked brad smell every single morning.
So ditch the cheap and nasty white sliced loaf this year and opt for home baked wholegrain breads freshly baked and toasted every morning. Is the perfect start to a new day, a new year and a new you.
