I’m meticulous with my shopping list. I buy the same few food products every week to keep costs down and I’m not much of an early adopter when it comes to new foods. Kellogg’s, Kraft and the like continuously refine and develop new food products each year and I’ve done a pretty good job avoiding the junk and sticking to the fresh, healthier stuff.
About a month ago I passed Target’s bread section and noticed a loaf of Archer Farms Blueberry Streusel Bread. I’m a sucker for a treat here and there, but I refused for many weeks trying to stick to my shopping lists and avoid the unknown. Last Thursday, I caved. My thoughts were focused the bread even after I left the store weeks ago! My mom used to tell me if I really wanted something, go a few days and ask myself “do I still want that?” If the answer is yes, it’s time to think about getting it. I couldn’t deny the sweet blueberry crumble bread.
Who says you can’t treat yourself once in a while? It’s good for your mental health and your taste buds. Raw veggies, fibrous breads and fruits can get boring.
Here’s the facts, straight from the source:

There’s iron, a bit of calcium and only 8 grams of sugar. I wouldn’t suggest eating 15 slices a day, but with a little common sense and moderation, it’s a great way to satisfy your sweet tooth.
- French toast: Soak each loaf for roughly 1-2 minutes per side (any longer and the bread breaks apart).
- Plain toast: Pop these slices right in your toaster, don’t forget the milk!
- Sandwiches: Not all sandwiches much be created fibrous
