High Fiber Bread for that summer ready body
I love bread. It’s been my constant breakfast partner as far as I can remember; Peanut Butter Sandwich, Peanut Butter and Jelly Sandwich, Toasted Bread with SPAM, Toasted Bread with Bacon and Eggs, Toasted Bread with Ham, Bread with Pansit, Toasted bread with Coffee just to name a few.
And every time I decide to go on a diet, I bring bread, I still remember years ago when I was preparing for summer and the beach, I would eat Wheat Bread and Steamed Chicken everyday! What a challenge!
So this summer, like me, if you’re planning to go on a diet and want to watch your calorie intake, here are some Facts about the different kinds of bread that might be of use to you.
If you observe closely, you’ll notice that the calories in white bread actually contains the same calories as bread with grains or wholemeal. Most bread calories come from carbohydrates sourced from refined flour, and the calories made from this are absorbed rapidly by our bodies compared to brown or wholemeal breads. This is because of the high fiber levels that are found in brown breads. Fiber fills up the stomach quicker, helps you to sense satiety easily, so we tend to eat less food. Less food means less calories, which means a healthier looking you in no time!
But of course, don’t forget you still need to stay active and exercise.
So now, if you’re on the hunt for that perfect bread partner for you, let me recommend something for you, if not, then just skip to the end of this article…
For those looking for high-fiber wheat bread, I would recommend trying out Gardenia, specifically:
Gardenia High Fiber Wheat Raisin Loaf

It is loaded with 2x more fiber which may promote good digestive health and may help in proper weight management plus it has a fruity-licious taste.

Raisins are rich in antioxidants that may protect cells from free radical damage—the leading cause of cancer, aging and a variety of diseases. Raisins are good source of fiber, which may help lower blood cholesterol levels. They are rich in potassium that helps reduce blood pressure, while low in fat and sodium, making them an ideal addition to a healthy diet.
Whole wheat is rich in fiber which may aid in proper digestion. It may also lower the risk of developing cardiovascular diseases, including heart disease and stroke, by decreasing the body’s cholesterol level. Whole wheat also contains health-giving nutrients like Vitamin E, selenium, iron, magnesium, zinc and B-vitamins. What’s more, whole wheat contains certain phytochemicals that may help lower the risk of cancer and diabetes.
Gardenia Wheat Cranberry Loaf
Another must-try from the Gardenia Fruitylicious Wheat Bread selection is the new Gardenia Wheat Cranberry Loaf which combines the health benefits of FIBER and CRANBERRIES. It’s the same soft and moist whole wheat bread plus the sweet and tangy taste of sweetened, dried cranberries that makes bread snacking experience truly HEALTHY-LICIOUS!
Cranberries are a natural source of proanthocyanidins, a kind of phytonutrient, which decrease the adherence of bacteria to the wall of the urinary tract thus helping prevent urinary tract infection.
