Nothing's getting between me and my Brioche.

Rarely eat bread but only whole grain high protein bread. White bread is like eating marshmallows and makes my blood sugars crash.


No white bread for me! I have baked whole grain bread for 35 years.

Awesome! Do you use a breadmaker, or sans technology?


I hand-knead bread the old fashioned way. Kneading is rhythmic and a good arm workout. I aim for 500-550 strokes, until the dough forms a thin, translucent film without tearing when stretched out between my fingers. Then the dough is well-kneaded.

Flour dryness depends upon its age, where it was milled, temperature and how it was stored. I feel the dough and add up to 1/4 cup of water. Bread machines cannot do this.

Kneading connects me with millions of bread bakers over the eons. I love it.


I stopped eating sugar several months ago, and foods that contain sugar. I eat whole grain bread when I have bread. At my last check up I was no longer pre-diabetic. I'm glad to have dodged that bullet, and it looks like I may have dodged this one as well.


White bread and religion are two points I think differently then my family since I was little.


This means beer made with barley liquors which are made from corn or potatoes or rye. My take on this is if you are genetically predisposed to such a virus you are going to get it regardless of the precautions you take. The stress of worrying about it is more deadly than the problem. Moderation is the key in just about any situation.

macular degeneration is caused by a virus?

@dahermit No.


Rarely. Even if whole grain bread weren't nutritionally superior, I'd still prefer it for the flavor. But I try to cut down on processed foods (even though I've been doing a pretty poor job lately), so even whole grain breads aren't something I want to eat much of when I'm eating more healthfully.

100% whole wheat for me

not if i can help it! i don't buy it, that's for sure. does french or italian bread count? a really good one of those will occasionally tempt me. but wonder crap? i think it's called that because we have to wonder why anyone would eat it.

I prefer wheat or marble rye, but I'll eat white if I need to.


I prefer cinnamon raisin, oatmeal, wheat, basically anything but white.

Rarely! Once in a blue moon I enjoy a PB&J with white bread, but otherwise I've replaced it with tortillas, when I need something like it at all.

I almost always buy a multi-grain or pumpernickel, but when I want a bologna and cheese sandwich or tuna salad (which isn't often), I've got to have soft white bread. It just tastes better to me.


I never buy or eat white bread. My kids think I'm awful.

Me, I prefer to make good old Aussie Damper, i.e. flour, a pinch of salt half a cup of water, knead it into dough then place it on a flat stone and bake in a bed of coals, it can even be flavoured by using flat beer instead of water or mashed bananas or any other fruit you like.

Link doesn’t work for me?

My friend makes Artisan bread locally. It’s amazing!

I'm way picky about bread. There are very few commercial breads I'll eat.


If I must have bread, I eat dark pump. smile001.gif


I love bread! Any bread.

Only on a chip butty.

Amisja Level 8 Jan 29, 2019

Not so much now, I found out that processed flour makes me very tired. So much so that 10 or so mins after eating something like a sandwich if I sit on the sofa I'm asleep. Brown bread doesn't have quite the same effect

That could come in handy when you need to get some rest.
