Is bread and bodybuilding compatible? After all, Arnold once labeled white bread as "white death". However, if you eat the right type of bread you can benefit your body.
One of the chief defining factors on whether or not bread is healthy is how much fiber it contains. Many packaged breads contain little to no fiber and are not healthy at all. You can get around that by making your own bread and adding the specific ingredients you want. You can avoid all the preservatives and other bad elements like high fructose corn syrup that some breads contain.
Oat Option Bread
1 1/2 cups of instant oats (quick oats)
1/4 teaspoon baking powder
1 cup of whole wheat flour
1/2 cup of all purpose flour
1 cup of whole, plain yoghurt
1 teaspoon of sea salt
2 1/4 teaspoons of baking powder
1/4 cup of extra virgin olive oil
¾ cup of whole milk
1/4 cup of honey
Mix elements together in a large bowl.
Bake mixture at 375 degrees in a bread pan after coating pan with non-stick oil or spray.
Bake the bread in oven until the top starts to turn brown. This should take anywhere from 40 minutes to close to an hour, depending upon your oven.
Once you take the bread out of the oven, let it sit for at least a quarter hour.
You can also make an alternate to this bread by adding in raisins, nuts, and/or seeds, as well as hemp seeds for other options.
