So don't. Before you head to your local health food store, check out this list of some of the best low-calorie, high-fiber bread options on the market today—brand names included.
A high-fiber diet boasts a whole lot of health benefits, write Dr. Steven G. Pratt and Kathy Matthews in their book SuperFoods HealthStyle. That's because foods packed with fiber tend to brim with disease-fighting phytonutrients.
Here are Pratt and Matthews' top choices for breads that are high in fiber and nutrients, yet calorically moderate.
- Manna from Heaven (Julian Bakery): 8 grams fiber, 85 calories per slice
- Healthseed Spelt (French Meadow Bakery): 4 grams fiber, 81 calories per slice
- Vogel's Soy & Flaxseed Bread (Schwebel's): 3 grams fiber, 100 calories per slice
- The Original Bran for Life Bread (Food for Life Baking Company): 5 grams fiber, 80 calories per slice
