Whole Wheat Bread!

As folks who know me know, I don't have much respect for
 fashion trends in nutritional science. My basic heuristic in
food has always been : does it taste good? does it feel right?
 does it make things better?

Naturally, the biggest conflict in the universe of those
who bake is between those who bake for taste and those
 who bake for 'health'... by the way, these do not have
 to be mutually exclusive goals.

...that said... it has to taste good!

a note about the above table...

The nutritional information listed above is for the entire
 loaf of bread... so whether you slice your loaf into 12 , 16
or ultra thin 24 slices... you can determine the calorie
content per slice by simply dividing the numbers above...
 by the total number of slices.

Laura likes very thin slices... so we divide a loaf into 24
slices (easier to do if you refrigerate the loaf first and
find just the right bread knife!)... so a sandwich for
 Laura (2 slices ) contains 160 calories of bread. My
 slices ( from a 12 sliced loaf are twice as much).

Bon Appetite!
