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.
Did you know that not all bread is made equally? It’s not just about choosing between white and wheat when it comes to bread. Look at the ingredients list on the package. Even if the package says “wheat bread” it may not be the healthiest option. I started my boys on whole grain wheat bread when they were young. I always look for bread that contains whole grains and no additions like high fructose corn syrup. Since they have always had whole grain bread, they don’t even know that smooth white bread exists! If I could just get them to eat the crust on the bread!
One brand of bread that is passionate about their ingredients and freshness is Roman Meal. Roman Meal partners with more than 90 regional bakeries across the United States to deliver freshly baked bread to your local grocery store. Because of these partnerships, Roman Meal bread is never frozen and shipped long distances. Roman Meal whole grain bread is made from a whole grain blend of whole wheat, whole rye, wheat bran, wheat germ and flaxmeal, with hints of honey and molasses. I like that whole grains give bread texture!
So why should you eat whole grain bread?
Well, one serving of Roman Meal bread has 21 grams of whole grain. Whole grains aid in digestion and weight management. You can think of whole grains as fiber which is why it aids in digestion. Also, studies have shown that whole grains may reduce the risk of heart disease! Roman Meal bread is a good source of vitamin D and fiber and an excellent source of calcium.
If whole grain bread is new to you, take a look at these Roman Meal Bread Recipes for inspiration. Bread doesn’t have to be just for sandwiches. I found a recipe for Cherry & Blueberry Whole Grain Cheesecake Bites on the Roman Meal website that looks pretty good!
