To carb watchers and calorie counters consuming bread is often a big no-no. Unless, for reasons like allergies to gluten or some other condition, negative attitudes toward regular bread constitute high treason in our book. And so, we’d like to take a little time to celebrate the magic that is bread.

The Wonders of Bread

Is there any food product more versatile than bread? You can use it in different ways, any time of the day, and it goes well with other food items for satisfying and nutritionally-balanced meals. What’s more, it’s perfect in a crunch. If you’re pressed for time and need to eat, most creations using this food staple are ready in a matter of minutes. There’s so much you can can make including:

  • Sandwiches
  • Puddings
  • French toast
  • Regular toast
  • Cheesy breadsticks
  • Casseroles

Toast has been touted as one of the go-to remedies for pregnant women to ward off morning sickness. Another great benefit of this all-star treat? It’s inexpensive — especially considering how far it can go. We can’t understand bread ever going bad. But let’s assume you were called away on a secret mission for a few days and returned to not-so-fresh bread — it’s still useable! Here are a few ideas:

  • How about making croutons for your soup or salad?
  • You can make stuffing for poultry.
  • Make breadcrumbs for topping off some ooey-gooey delicious macaroni and cheese.
  • Use breadcrumbs to fry fish or coat fried chicken for Sunday dinner.

For Jamaicans, bread with fried fish, avocado (pear), porridge, or jerked pork are just natural pairings.
