I have learned so much about food by asking my friends what they buy, where they buy it, and why they like it. These conversations inspired me to start writing some posts on the food items I buy and why. Not only do I want to share with you what is working for us, but my hope is, that in the comments section, I will get to hear from you and what is working for you!
I always find it fascinating to peek into other peoples grocery carts, while waiting in line at the grocery store, to see what they are buying. So often I have wanted to strike up a conversation and ask about a product I see, and ask why they like it and why they choose it over another. I get the same feeling when I open up other people’s refrigerators, I love seeing what brands of foods they buy, and often get inspired to try something new.
Our Everyday, Whole Wheat Bread (either of the 2 below:)
If I Want To Treat My Kids To “White” Bread:
When I Want To Splurge:
*Disclaimer-I was not paid or compensated in anyway to promote these products.
It is important to me that our bread does not contain High Fructose Corn Syrup. (Read why here and here) I also think fiber is very important, so I try not to buy bread that contains less then 3 grams/slice. The “Oatnut” bread is what my girls call “the yummy white bread.” It is really good, but I do not buy it as often because it has less fiber in it and uses enriched flour (although unbleached:)) where as the 100% whole wheat breads uses whole wheat flour, which does not have to be enriched, because nothing was ever removed in the first place. I like that!

What brands of bread work for you? Have you switched to 100% whole wheat bread? If so, was it hard on your kids?
