Top Three Healthiest Breads

One of the top three healthiest breads…Sourdough…offers several health benefits, making it a great choice for your diet:

  1. Good for Your Gut:
    • The fermentation process in sourdough bread leads to prebiotic and probiotic-like properties, which can improve gut health. Try opting for whole-grain sourdough for additional fiber benefits.
  2. Better Digestion:
    • Despite containing gluten, sourdough might help improve gluten digestion. Fermentation alters wheat enzymes, potentially counteracting adverse reactions. If you’re sensitive to gluten, consult a healthcare provider before enjoying sourdough.
  3. Promotes Healthy Aging:
    • Fermented grain-based products like sourdough have antioxidant, anti-hypertensive, anti-diabetic, and FODMAP-reducing qualities. They’re a staple in the Mediterranean diet and may contribute to healthy aging.
  4. Blood Sugar Control:
    • Unlike simple carbohydrates, sourdough has a lower glycemic response, reducing rapid blood glucose spikes. Pair it with protein and fat for better overall blood sugar management.

Top Three Healthiest Breads

Knead by hand or mixer all ingredients for 10 minutes. Cover and rest on the counter for 2 hours until it doubles in size. Divide into 2 balls, then shape the balls into tubes and pinch the ends to make a point. Let the baguette rolls rest on the counter for 1 hour. After one hour, preheat the oven to 425 degrees. In the meantime, place baguettes on baking sheet in the freezer for 30 minutes while the oven preheats. After 30 minutes, remove the baguettes from the freezer, put 3 slices down the middle of each loaf and place in the oven. Bake for 25 minutes until lightly golden brown. Let cool completely before slicing. Enjoy the wholesome goodness of these healthy baguettes with my Pasta Primavera recipe on the blog and make it a perfect pairing!
