12/15/12- Paula's Eating/Exercise Journal: Tuesday

by Paula (Clean Eating Expert) 16. December 2012 08:00

I helped a friend the other day that inquired to me if their bread that they liked (potato bread) was really that bad for him.  I had just bought a low calorie whole wheat, high fiber bread, so we compared nutritional charts.  Fat content on mine was better, sugar on whole wheat was better, sodium was alot better, fiber was surprisingly close and protein on the fortified whole wheat was better.  Doing the research on these breads reminded me about comparing breads, cereals, peanut butters...organic vs. regular ( not veggies, but rather cereals, frozen pizzas, yogurts and canned goods to name a few),high fiber vs. regular products, American heart association recommended products vs. non-endorsed products...

It really is worth comparing products and looking at the various nutritional numbers!  When looking and comparing also look at the size of the serving being compared.  With whole wheat breads, some data is for 1 slice, some is for 2.  That can mean the difference of 100 calories per slice!  That adds up.

Just be educated and you can make healthy choices for you and your family.
