With all the labels you see in the bread aisle -- "Made with whole grains," "100% whole grain," "whole wheat" -- it's difficult to know which kind is actually the best for you. Make your next grocery trip slightly less confusing with these tips.

Thanks Kit. So often guidance for healthy eating related to reading labels calls for remembering so much you pretty much need the article with you to compare to labels. This one provides a simple and easy way to tell at a short glance.

I am crazy about bread, I used to make my own, now I try to be careful about what I buy.
The exception being bagels, which I love and don't care if they are not good for me, about once a month I have one with cream cheese. Yummy!

I adored the smell of baking bread and loved to bake, but I've had to go gluten-free so I've learned a different way of eating.

STill, we have to be really careful about ingredients of anything we eat.
Well done for this article, Kit.

I only eat whole wheat or rye bread and have done so for many, many years. However do enjoy a few white buns once in awhile to make a sweet raw onion sandwich (which seems to taste better on white bread. I love bread and really eat too much. I wish I was like like Frans and not like it at all and then I might be much thinner. Thanks for posting Kit.

I can smell it now! Mom and I were goners when we went grocery shopping. She'd pick up a loaf of bread and sniff it...then she's push it up my nose so I had no choice but to smell it! LOL After we'd thrown the bread into the grocery cart along with the eggs and everything else, I waited in line with her, putting last minute items, such as Soap Oper Digest in the buggy and then throw in a few Reece's peanut butter cups. After everything was paid for, I'd wait for Mom while she loaded the station wagon and the we'd go next door to the bakery. Talk about SMELLING BREAD!! OMG!! Ain't NOTHING more ENTICING then SMELLING BAKED BREAD!!!! Needless to say, we'd buy a loaf of bread, a dozen cheese cookies for me and high tail it out of Dodge!!!!!! LOL
