White or Wheat?

Do you buy white or wheat bread for the house? Is there a spelt bread you prefer, or do you eat bread at all? I do like the taste of white bread, but I know wheat is better for me. I can't resist a crusty French loaf once in a while.

Well, I have stopped eatting white bread almost completely. And I only eat wheat bread occasionally, I find that it's a bit too sweet for me. Right now, I find that 9 grain bread 'fits the bill'. It's not sweet, it supplies the fiber that I need and I like the taste...8o)

My older son and I prefer the brown bread while husband and younger son like the white bread. So, I usually end up buying both at home.

I only buy whole grain or whole wheat breads for my house. I know white bread won't kill me, but it really has no nutritional value. "Real" breads, as I like to call them, have fiber and are beneficial to your heart. They have other nutrients, too, that white bread doesn't have. My favorite brand of bread is "Arnold". If you haven't tried it, you should. I personally like the "Health Nut" kind, but there are so many great kinds.

Whole wheat is the healthier option but it's so bland that I have to put butter just to have flavor. In so doing, it becomes unhealthy due to fat from the butter. My kids prefer the white bread because it has more flavor. They usually eat it together with chocolate spread

I always prefer whole wheat bread because it is more nutritious than white bread. Whole wheat bread has almost balanced nutritional properties and very good for the body. It has high fibers, vitamins and antioxidants.

I have turned to the stone ground breads, I read that really whole wheat is not any more better for you than white, well let me back that up, not too much different. I found some really good stoneground bread at the store this last trip and a reasonable price too. We are putting to much wheat into our systems the doctors say, so the stoneground breads are suppose to be so much better for you. My husband being from the south likes french bread.

We ususally do not have lot of bread but earlier we used to have only white bread but nowadays you get lot of varities and as wheat bread are good for health so we usually get it. We usually in India eat more of Chappati (made out of wheat flour) which is very good for health.

I grew up eating only white bread, but since I got married, my husband prefers wheat. Now I like it just as well. I don't eat a lot of bread, but when I eat a sandwich, I use wheat bread. It is supposed to be more nutritious.

I like to but both although I do prefer wheat bread, it just seems to make sandwiches taste a lot better to me, and I like to use to whit bread for toast or for the peanut butter and jelly sandwich. Have a good day!!

I actually never buy bread at all. I don't eat sandwiches, unless I'm at a restaurant and nothing looks appealing. There are some sandwiches I like, such as a Reuben, chicken salad, or an egg salad sandwich. But because of my financial issues (I'm on disability), I don't buy eggs, bread, cheese, or even the chicken salad they sell premade. It all seems too expensive. Isn't that silly? The bread could be a good price, but if the stuff I'd put on it is too expensive...I don't like turkey or bologna, so none of that either. : ) But I prefer white bread over wheat. At least in taste.

We only have wholemeal brown bread in the goth house hun, both my partner and I don't really like white bread very much as it seems bland and tasteless. Wholemeal is a much healthier option, more fibre and much tastier too

I really like whole grain breads like 12 grain, made by the store so it's nice and nutty. But that has 120-180 calories per slice so I rarely buy it. I love rye bread, too. But what I usually buy is the 35 calories per slice bread with fiber in it. It's alright but nothing like a really good slice of 12 grain or oatmeal bread with some real butter on it!!

Wheat bread for me, as it is believed to be more nutritious compared to white. Not just that though - I personally prefer the taste of wheat bread, it seems to taste yummier. Especially with lots of butter for the spread. I can enjoy it as it is or I can have it toasted lightly for some crispness.

Bread has become such a difficulty. I love bread of all varieties (except those grocery store sandwich loafs that are just mushy and yuck!). I know that white bread is not a very healthy option to eat all the time, so while I do enjoy some on occasion I try to stick with whole grain options most of the time. The problem is finding a good whole grain bread that's affordable. I don't want a bread that has high fructose corn syrup or a lot of sugar, artificial ingredients, preservatives, and the like. And the only bread that meets that criteria at the grocery store is likely to run $4 per loaf! So lately I just don't eat much bread at all. I really want to start making my own whole grain bread, but I'm having trouble finding good, simple recipes that don't require a bread machine.
