Are those New Years Resolutions left in the dust? My resolution, this year, was to lose 30 pounds. I've been carrying it around for about 4 years now and I'm just fed up! I'm sticking to my goal and am down a whopping 27 pounds! Woo hoo! Now that I'm learning to eat healthy, get plenty of rest, and plenty of exercise, I've begun to incorporate healthy alternatives to the foods I love, in hopes of being able to maintain a healthy diet, without depriving myself.
Now, when you think of a dieting and trying to drop a few pounds, bread is usually a big no-no. But, as a BzzAgent, I was introduced to new Health-Full Breads! They are a new line of soft and delicious, oven-baked breads with a healthy kick! With only 80 calories, whole grains, fiber, and 5 grams of protein per full-sized slice, they are hands down the healthiest breads on the market!
The 10 Grain bread Heath-Full bread was perfect for sandwiches. With the large size, I was actually satisfied with cutting a slice in half, and making a half size sandwich. It was incredible how much more bang you get for your buck here. They are hearty, stuffed full of whole grain, fiber and protein, so you really, truly feel satisfied after eating it. And at 80 calories per slice, that satisfaction can't be beat! I love the idea of incorporating bread back into my healthy diet. I've missed it so much, and I feel like since I'm not depriving myself, I won't overindulge! Perfect!
Now, I'll be honest, my kids were not impressed with the new Health-Full breads. They are wheat bread eaters, but usually a more kid-friendly light wheat. But, one morning, I decided to try making French Toast with the Nutty Grain Health-Full bread. It turned out delicious and my kids gobbled it up! I think using this healthier alternative to their usual breads, in ways that they can't really tell the difference, is a great way to get healthy whole grains and fiber into them without them even knowing it!
We also gave grilled cheese a shot with the Nutty Grain Health-Full bread. It browned to a nice crispy texture, and my kids and I enjoyed that as well! They had no idea their good old grilled cheese was jam-packed with nutrition! #momslittlesecrets
