Sprouted Bread

I picked up some delicious sprouted bread from The Staple Store in Ripponlea today. So, what are the benefits of sprouted bread?!

Germination of nuts, seeds and grains rather then cooking them allows the retention of plant enzymes which are great for digestion. They are also high in antioxidants and support good bacteria in the gut.

Sprouts contain a large amount of vitamins and minerals and are easy to digest. Breads made from them tend to be low GI and generally contain other ingredients such as chia seeds which deliver even more nutritional benefits.

Make one change!

If you are going to make one change, make it this! Swap from white bread to wholegrain/multigrain. White bread is high GI meaning that it breaks down quickly in the body causing a spike in blood sugar levels which then drop suddenly….basically leaving you feeling crappy. White bread is also basically sugar strung together to make the bread…ewww. If you try eating white bread after swapping to wholegrain bread for a while you will taste it’s sweetness!
