Are bread sales toast?

News this week revealed that bread sales are plummeting as the public is turning away from carbs and gluten in an attempt to eat more healthily.

In recent years, some weight-loss diets have warned against eating carbohydrates, which has hit sales of bread hard. Thankfully at Slimming World, we know that carbohydrates are an essential part of a healthy, well-rounded diet.

The great thing about Food Optimising is that bread isn’t a ‘banned’ food (as it is with many other eating plans). In fact, wholemeal bread as a Healthy Extra will ensure you’re kept full of fibre and healthy all round!

From a fully-loaded lean bacon sarnie, to a ham and cheese combo, bread is one of our favourite foods that along with filling Free Foods, will keep you losing weight beautifully.

Here are a few of our favourites: 

Classic BLT

Smoked salmon, dill and scrambled eggs

Curried veggie burger and chips

Open sandwiches with prawn, tomato and lime mayonnaise
