VIDEO | Little Choices: Choose 5-ingredient Bread


Here’s a little choice from Munson Healthcare Charlevoix Wellness Instructor Rachel Sytsma Reed, PhD, that is instantly enjoyable: choose bread with just FIVE ingredients (typically found in the bakery or produce section of your local grocery store) for a sandwich or toast that’s filled with heart-healthy fiber without added preservatives or animal fats. As an added bonus, this “whole food” bread tastes hearty and fresh! It’s a little change packed with amazing benefits.


If you want to make your own heart-healthy bread, find Rachel’s favorite whole grain bread here. Though it’s technically 9 ingredients, this delicious bread is full of nourishing ingredients that are beneficial to your heart – including oats! This bread also freezes for up to a month if you find the loaf is too much for 3-4 days.
