Bread has been our food for centuries. Many of us find it difficult to imagine a morning or evening meal without delicious bread or a fresh roll. One thing for sure, bread has that “something” in it, which means we never get bored of it.

Bread in your diet – what role does it play?

The food pyramid created by specialists from the Food and Nutrition Institute places bread in second place, right after vegetables and fruit, next to groats, whole grain pasta and other cereal products. This means that it is an essential component of our diet and a source of energy.
Whole-grain and wholemeal bread provide important macro and microelements also valuable fibre and vitamins, mainly from group B. Therefore, it should not be excluded entirely from the diet.

The answer to the question is what kind of bread on a diet is not clear-cut and is “it depends”. On what? Among other things, whether we want to lose or gain weight or have a known gluten allergy. It also depends on our age or health (some diseases require an individual diet).

The best solution for people on a slimming diet will be wholemeal bread or sourdough rye bread. People who want to gain weight can alternate between wheat and whole-grain bread or mixed bread. In the case of people with various diseases or allergies, it is best to consult with a doctor about the choice of bread. Whole-grain and wholemeal bread are also not recommended for young children and in excess for the elderly because it is difficult to digest.

What about bread for your diet?

When considering what type of bread for your diet, remember what kind of bread or rolls are essential to your health and what you eat them with. Our sandwiches must be varied and contain as many healthy ingredients as possible. What could they be?

  • Sliced ​​avocado or in the form of a paste with garlic, olive oil, lemon and salt (contains EFAs – Essential Fatty Acids and a wealth of vitamins).
  • Smoked mackerel or salmon with chives is also a beneficial solution.
  • Lettuce, ham, tomato, radish and any green additives are the ingredients of our favourite sandwiches. Not only are they tasty, but they also provide plenty of vitamins.

These are just some of the suggestions for healthy sandwiches. There are many possibilities!

To sum up, we do not have to give bread up; it is enough to ensure that it is of good quality, tailored to our needs, age and health condition. If the correct amount is eaten with healthy supplements, it will bring many benefits to our body.
