Making home-made bread has become one of my favorite things to do – especially on my days off. It is relaxing , and let’s me be the science nerd that I am being able to watch the whole process.

One of the reasons I started making my own bread is noticing how many store-bought bread options have a laundry list of ingredients. These extra ingredients are usually preservatives to keep the bread lasting long. I found out during my education that it only takes five ingredients to make bread: flour, yeast, salt, a sweetener, and a fat. I was working at a health and wellness event during my internship when one of the local businesses made me recognize of this. Ever since then, I have been making my own whole wheat bread as a hobby of mine. This is just one of the many ways I know and can choose what I put into my body – nourishing and wholesome ingredients.

While I still buy store-bought bread – disclaimer – which is perfectly fine to be doing – I enjoy the experience of baking some homemade as well. If buying store-bought whole wheat bread, the word “whole” grain should be first, most abundant ingredient on the ingredient list.

Since there are no preservatives in this recipe, I hold about four fresh slices in the fridge and freeze the rest of the loaf (making sure I let it cool completely, slicing the rest before wrapping in plastic wrap and foil, then freezing).

Your brain’s favorite source of energy is carbohydrates, so this is a great meal component to begin your day. Whole wheat contains B Vitamins, Magnesium, Iron, Phosphorus, Manganese, Selenium, Fiber, and even a little bit of Protein. I love pairing this with my veggie omelette in the morning with some avocado slices. Give it a go and let me know how you enjoy!
