I participated in an Influencer Activation on behalf of Mom Central Consulting for Roman Meal. I received product samples to facilitate my review and a promotional item to thank me for participating.
If you are trying to live a healthier lifestyle, you may sometimes feel the way I do, confused. There is so much information available wherever you turn, I sometimes don’t know where to start. I am not into fad diets, miracle products or get skinny quick methods. I just want to eat wholesome food that tastes good, get my body moving more and pay better attention to what goes into my mouth. Where to start? I plan to start with the basics.
Confession, I eat a lot of bread. Probably, more than I should, but I just have to have bread. Eating a lot of bread isn’t going to be a problem for me as long as I make good choices. The 2010 Dietary Guidelines for Americans recommends that you make half the grains you eat whole. Whole grain products are a basic good for you food. They are chock full of vitamins and minerals. Whole grain foods contain complex carbohydrates to give you energy, may help prevent heart disease, contains fiber that helps fill you up and regulate your digestive system, which can lead to weight loss. Sounds good right? Yes and no. Just follow a few simple steps and you will find the whole grain bread products that you and your family will love.
Whole grain products such as bread, crackers, rice, pasta and snacks are readily available on any grocery shelf. BUT, be sure you are really getting the WHOLE grain. Start by reading the ingredient list on the products you plan to buy. If you see the words, enriched, bleached or fortified you may not be getting a real whole grain product. The ingredient list should say Whole Grain, that word whole is very important to the health aspects of the food. You can also look for the whole grain seal. Don’t rely on color or the word wheat, always check your ingredient list.
When I eat bread it’s important to me that it tastes great and I want to know that it is as fresh as it can be. Roman Meal Bread is one of the better tasting brands we have tried.
