Wheat over White

When eating bread, always opt for the Whole Grain variety. It contains fiber, vitamins, nutrients, and won’t cause a spike in your blood sugar like white bread does. White bread seems more readily available, but going whole wheat will prevent energy fluctuations and weight gain. It’s a small change that can pay big dividends.
