4 – White Bread
Why replace it?
Bread, just like pasta, can be processed in different ways. As a general rule, bread is high in calories and carbs, and low in protein, fat, fibre, vitamins and minerals.
Change for whole wheat bread. This is probably the best easily available bread since it provides a higher amount of fibre and protein compared to white bread, both of which help keep your blood sugar steady. The healthiest bread, however, is Ezequiel bread, made of several types of sprouted grains and legumes. You can hardly find it in supermarkets but might be lucky looking into bio markets and healthy food branches.
Another cheap and low-carb option would be to change your burger bun for one large lettuce leaf.
