You have probably seen in my Instagram feed how excited I get whenever I find yeast-free wholemeal rye bread... Yes, I am a bit mad about it! To be honest, I wasn't at first! I come from the land of the never-ending bread-parade! (aka Spain). But once I introduced it into my daily life, there is no going back!
Perhaps if I explain why, you might become as crazy about it as well! There is tons and tons of research showcasing rye bread's benefits and it is a key ingredient of the Metabolic Balance Plan. Some include:
In comparison to other types of bread, it results in lower glucose and insulin responses after eating it, helping you maintain your system in balance and even reducing risks of developing Type 2 Diabetes.
It can also reduce risk of colorectal cancers and gallstones due to its high fiber content.
Rye bread can also help you feel satiated for longer, when compared to wheat.
Because of all these three last factors, it can aid weight loss as well!
Rye bread could help reduce inflammation in people suffering from metabolic syndrome.
Some even claim it provides cardiovascular benefits for postmenopausal women and potential ease of menopausal symptoms.
And some brands out there actually make very tasty bread! My favourites are Biona's.
But please remember there are no bad or good foods! Just think that what you put in your body will sustain your cells, which ultimately make you! So it is very important to focus on nutrient-dense ingredients that will nourish you from head to toe.
Now, who wants some rye bread?
