Is Homemade Bread Better for You?
Homemade bread is so much tastier than store-bought bread, it isn’t laden with preservatives, it is very inexpensive to make, and doesn’t take all that much time, either. Who knows what is really in that store-bought bread anyway? We all know the government is padding their pockets with money made from genetically-modified ingredients that are just making us sick, hence all the new gluten-free products out now.
Here are some of my favorite posts about homemade bread that you can pair with these healthy recipes!
Home-baked bread can also offer more nutrients and fewer additives than commercially manufactured breads.
The USDA recommends consuming at least 3 oz. of whole grains daily. Labels on commercial breads can lead you to believe they contain more whole grains than they actually do. When you prepare bread at home, you can be sure of the amount of whole grains included in the recipe.
If you have serious food allergies, you can tailor your bread recipes to leave out the offending ingredients. Even manufactured breads that do not contain the allergen may have been produced on equipment contaminated with it. Making your own bread prevents almost all possibility of cross-contamination
