When you are trying to eat clean, it can be hard to find a healthy store bought bread.

(Much more is just as bad as less, as it implies synthetic fiber has been added). Compare and choose brands with the least amount of sodium, ideally less than 200 mg of sodium per slice. Fiber Up: Aim for at least 1 gram of fiber for every 10 grams of carbohydrates (that’s about the ratio found in whole grains).

So if your slice has 20 grams of. It’s important to take a look at the sugar, fiber, and protein levels as well. You don’t want to get bread that has more than 2 grams of sugar, or less than 2 grams of protein and fiber. Both of these brands are at the 2-gram mark for sugar, but they fall short of the desired protein levels.

Make sure you’re reading ingredient labels to determine whether you’re looking at a bread packed with whole grains or a refined product with some oats mixed in. In addition to whole wheat, Ditkoff lists brown rice, oats, barley, buckwheat, bulgur and. Bread Myth No. 2: Breads with healthy sounding names like “seven-grain” or “100% natural” are the best choices.

The Truth: Just because the name of the bread on the package sounds super-healthy. Here are a few tips to help you navigate the bread aisle to help you choose healthier store-bought breads. 1. Be wary of breads that don’t have “100%” on the label.

  • I found lavash flat bread from Joseph’s 60 cals, 290 sodium, total sugar 0, total fat 1.5 g, 8 carbs 1/2 flatbread 32g,sat fat 0g,cholesterol 0mg,protein 6g,dietary fiber 2g. Ingredients: water, wheat gluten, oat fiber, corn starch, soy flour, soy protein isolate, niacin, reduced iron, and other ings.

  • Did the owner of the store come out and kindly tell you to keep the refrigeration door closed if you do not plan to buy anything?

  • What we all should start doing is flipping around all of the loafs of bread (or other produce) in the stores lol. With the ingredient list on the front instead of the disgusting misleading marketing.. Love your videos and it still amazes me why we never got taught these (to me) basics in school or our children. I’m Dutch and I’m still learning from your videos about American products. Thank you and keep it up ��

  • Do you have a video where you’ve explained why we should avoid high sodium content? I always hear the sodium topic on your videos but I don’t know why to avoid it. Doesn’t our body naturally need sodium to properly function?

  • I was so happy you said such positive things about Ezekiel bread I Love Trader Joe’s so so much!! And you’re so cute love your energy and those bloopers! I’m so addicted to your channel and your amazing content!!

  • Hi, dietetics university student here. If you’re a Canadian viewer this doesn’t apply to you! In Canada we have different regulations as to what’s considered “whole wheat.” In order for the entire wheat kernels bran, endosperm, and germ to be intact, it must be labeled “whole grain.” Whole wheat products usually have some of the germ and bran removed. This is beneficial in the sense that it may prevent your bread from going stale quicker (the removed germ contains unsaturated fat, which is unstable/causes bread to go rancid quicker). However, by removing a portion of the bran and germ, some of the dietary fibre and micronutrients are removed! So make sure you buy 100% whole grain. And as mentioned in the video, always check the ingredient lists in order to obtain a “cleaner” bread.

  • I was just recently able to find an okay whole wheat bread where I live. Wheat is not grown in many places in this country and so whole wheat bread is rare. The bread I was able to find is STILL not the best as it has less than 4g of fiber per slice even though it cost twice as much as regular bread. I miss the breadbasket of the states!

  • These are very instructive, but to nitpick”chemicals” drives me nuts (EVERYTHING has chemicals)m perhaps over-processed, stuff you can’t pronounce, etc. etc. Still good though. Dave’s Killer Bread is excellent.

  • i still remember standing in the bread isle at the grocery store years ago for a half hour looking for wheat bread that didn’t have HFCS.

  • I think it’s also important to note that a long list of ingredients isn’t always a bad thing. Some added things to the bread (like for colour) are ok but other dyes etc are not.

  • Before this no-junk-food challenge, I wasn’t aware how many sugar sources were in my bread. I need a new bread. I do enjoy my slice of toast each morning. I’ve eaten Udi’s for years because it tasted good, had flavor options (all are tasty) was low in calories, doable carb grams, and gluten-free. I didn’t look at much else. Now I’m wanting to eat cleaner. Time to go searching the gluten-free bread options.

  • I am addicted to your videos! Have been watching only you for almost a week. Trying to cram as much info before my shopping trip lol Thank You

  • “Healthy” bread options are just too damn expensive. Sorry.
    Yeah, a few bucks extra for JUST bread isn’t bad, but when you effectively double the price for EVERY product,(bread, milk, fruit, eggs, cheese, ect) it is just not feasible for an average household. It can easily turn a $100 weekly trip into $250+. Just not financially possible for most people.

  • I love oat nutty bread, probably not good. Here’s the thing about your videos, they’re very informative but a lot of people just can’t afford it. I know I personally after working many hard years as a nurse I’m stuck disabled, alone, and very limited income. It pretty much stops becoming a choice. Just some info, I’m sure I’m not the only one. I absolutely love fresh fruits and vegetables! Another issue is being able to stand long enough to cook and do dishes. Sounds simple, but it’s not. I’m glad you’re teaching people how to eat healthier though. In this world of everything fast food the education is very important.

  • I think changing the name would be really nice. It’s so great that you’re considering the negative connotation behind the term “skinny”. ❤️

  • Thank you!!!! This was so chalk full of helpful information!!!! Love your channel! My teenage son is watching it with me to learn:)

  • I just did these exactly the way you said to, but I hadn’t watched this video yet, I was gonna come and tell you my new invention but you beat me to it! ��������

  • I just did these exactly the way you said to, but I hadn’t watched this video yet, I was gonna come and tell you my new invention but you beat me to it! ��������

  • How do you feel about Ezekiel or Genesis bread made from sprouting grains? I love it but only w butter which almost certainly eradicates any health benefits. ��

  • Since one of the breads you talked about was “12 Grain” I wish you had addressed the fact that “multigrain”-type labels on bread don’t necessarily indicate whole grain or healthy options. A lot of times its white bread with some seeds thrown in. It’s super important to look at the label and see if whole grain wheat flour is the main ingredient with those types! Great video, really enjoyed it, and I’ll be checking sodium content from now on (didn’t realize it could be so high)!

  • I love using Silver Hills bakery bread they are an organic local brand that most of our grocery stores carry even Costco. Love the fibre and protein and whole wheat flour. We don’t have a lot of your selections shown here in Canada.

  • Maybe change it to the healthy on? Idk I kinda don’t like how skinny is always related to being healthy cause people who’re chubby can still be healthy they’re just chubby too

  • I tried making your wife’s gluten free keto bread made with almond butter. It is delicious and so easy. Thank you for the recipe. I also mail order Simple Kneads bread which contains awesome ingredients and tastes great. It is a bit pricey.

  • What are your opinions on Ezekiel bread versus a traditional whole grain bread? I’ve been transitioning to a healthier lifestyle and have noticed people talking about it as a “complete protein” are there really any actual benefits?

  • Maybe change it to the healthy on? Idk I kinda don’t like how skinny is always related to being healthy cause people who’re chubby can still be healthy they’re just chubby too

  • Love how you go through the labels……I immediately grabbed all my bread products to check out how they compared.  I already have the Ezekiel:  )  glad to see you mention that one.

  • I’ve been trying for years to find healthy bread where I live but even the whole grain breads had loooads of additives so I just stuck to making my own bread.

  • Read your ingredients, DON’T buy with any sugars at all. sprouted is best plus for ‘regular” bread daves killer powerseed is good, NO SUGAR

  • seriously,in-the-U.K,we-hardly-have-any-wholewheat-bread-anywhere,it’s-all-white,brown-and-wholemeal-bread-or-pay-for-expensive-online-stuff,really-annoying…

  • Yes. I. Do. ��

    What do you think about making crumbs from nuts? My fav is cashews. But Now I buy mixed nuts and use them as the crust for my cheesecakes.

  • do you have unpacked bread in us in supermarkets or only prepacked? In Poland paced bread, unless it is some sort of very dark, rich bread, is very poor quality.

  • This is so informative! I think it was a couple weeks ago I did a grocery haul and was shocked that almost all the breadcrumbs had high fructose corn syrup in them. I didn’t understand. This is such an informative video

  • Great video. I am from Europe, and the bread there is generally better but here I buy Dave’s killer bread 21 whole grains and seeds. What do you think about that one?

  • i’m starting to watch your videos and love it, thanks for all the information you gave.
    i think i’ll start eating healthier from now on:D

  • do you have unpacked bread in us in supermarkets or only prepacked? In Poland paced bread, unless it is some sort of very dark, rich bread, is very poor quality.

  • Hi Bobby, thank you for this video. I am vegan and need a good bread that is gluten-free. I am having a hard time finding one. The ones you mentioned that are gluten-free have egg in it. Thank you for your informative videos.

  • What does it matter if it’s women-owned I mean what I make a bread and put man owned just for that reason I will not buy the bread

  • just found these videos yesterday love them! thank you for taking the time to make them! skinny on packed snacks? besides nuts and bars its hard to bring things to work! thank you so much

  • I tried making your wife’s gluten free keto bread made with almond butter. It is delicious and so easy. Thank you for the recipe. I also mail order Simple Kneads bread which contains awesome ingredients and tastes great. It is a bit pricey.

  • This is the deal…I see allot of people talking about how much healthy food cost…but how much does it cost when you go to DOCTORS office because SOMETHING you ate makes you sick? Ok BUY THE BREAD ANNA MAE!!!! It will save you LOTS of trips to the doctor. Enjoy your day! You’re welcome! Thanks Bobby

  • I am addicted to your videos! Have been watching only you for almost a week. Trying to cram as much info before my shopping trip lol Thank You

  • Great video. I am from Europe, and the bread there is generally better but here I buy Dave’s killer bread 21 whole grains and seeds. What do you think about that one?

  • Does sprouted really make a difference? And whole-grain vs refined actually doesn’t make much of a difference when it’s not fermented/sprouted. The added anti-nutrients counter-balance that little bit of nutrients in the whole-grain.

    I would always go for slow-fermented sourdough bread which I guess you won’t find in the packaged bread section. Go to the bakery, make it yourself or go for keto bread.

  • You say not to go by what the front of the package says, but you trust in what the back of the package says.. One advice -dont believe in everything you read.. There are things that the food industry don’t label.

  • thank u always. Ur videos changed my life. I cannot thank u enough. I just wonder if u have ever done any research about ancient flour and bread made with it. Due to a lot of gmos and new proteins created by that, i believe people including myself
    go through difficult time digesting bread. I would love to knpw ur opinion in this. thanks again!

  • Grocery guide Sound so good because it has a cool touch to it, Also because I know of another youtuber that’s her channel name is healthygrocerygirl and that’s her special name for her business so ya that sounds so cool I love it I think others would love it to. I think you should use it and go with what you were thing to do because you should do it, I love and like with what you came up with.!:-) I love watching your videos they give me inspiration and awesome Knowledge.!:-)

  • Bobby, question for you as i’m a bit confused now one of the sprouted breads you said ‘sure, it has a little tapioca flour’ but that was the third ingredient; aren’t ingredients listed from most to least used? the bread that you said isn’t as good had tapioca listed as third as well… or does the order of ingredients not matter?

  • “Healthy” bread options are just too damn expensive. Sorry.
    Yeah, a few bucks extra for JUST bread isn’t bad, but when you effectively double the price for EVERY product,(bread, milk, fruit, eggs, cheese, ect) it is just not feasible for an average household. It can easily turn a $100 weekly trip into $250+. Just not financially possible for most people.

  • I usually go to a bakery and get a fresh loaf of whole grain bread. İ don’t know what is in it. There are very healthy whole grain options in supermarkets. Should I get the ones in the supermarkets or in the bakery?

  • good to hear you tell it like it is. were responsible for what we eat. companies are responsible for their investors profits. you all do great on making these videos, thanks so much

  • I do enjoy Ezekiel bread but it does not do well for my blood sugar and there are other videos on YT where Ezekiel bread caused higher blood sugar spikes than typical wheat and white bread

  • you are FANTASTIC! Coming from a nutrition student and aspiring dietitian, your information is not only accurate but very relatable and easily understood! I LOVE your videos!

  • Thank you for making such a great, informative video! I’m not looking at the info on my favourite bakery’s website:)
    I was wondering if you know anything about these ingredients?
    Wheat Flour
    Malted Barley Flour
    Ascorbic Acid
    Lipase
    and Amylase

    Thanks!

  • Why am I a seasoned celiac watching this? ��
    Because store bought GF bread is never healthy and nutritious and I am jealous that bread is definitely a treat. ������

  • I do get how the word “skinny” could get misinterpreted with some people, but I honestly like it and it sounds like everyone else does too! Btw, your hair is on point.

  • That Silver Hills big little bread is my favorite! It’s definitely for picky people if you’re not into the sprouted taste. I noticed they sell it at target now, But they normally have it by the refrigerator is not on the normal bread aisle

  • Thank you for making such a great, informative video! I’m not looking at the info on my favourite bakery’s website:)

  • Why does everything have eggs? Celiacs often have allegies to other foods. How about some good breads that don’t have wheat or eggs or milk? Besides schaar that is.

  • I appreciated the video but wouldn’t pay retail price for a loaf of bread just to turn it into breadcrumbs. The amount that you made may be enough for wouldn’t be enough for my family of 3 plus leftovers. But croutons I can do!

  • Hey gorgeous

    I have a question. My friends told me they are on the low carb diet and that they have been feeling really crappy lately and I told them because they need carbs (good carbs of course) because their cells and body runs on the national sugar. But as always they listen to this other person who says carbs are bad for you and that they need to eat a high fat diet and high proteins and low carb. Am
    I on the wrong?!

  • Hi All! I am confused about the cracked wheat part because I thought cracked wheat is nutritious since the bran and germ are still included. Does anyone have any insights to this?

  • Interesting what you said about bread size. I grew up in the UK but now live in the US and i think your bread slices are smaller…

  • I stumbled upon your videos and love them! Do you have any recommendation on types of food that are beneficial for the brain. I’m in the process of finals, studying for the GRE, on top of being a type 1 diabetic and looking for a boost in my diet to get me though this month. I would love to hear your recommendations. In good health, Melissa

  • Would you do a video on protein powders? My boyfriend and I cant decide what kinds of protein powders to get that would benefit the both of us.:)

  • You should keep the name but add “knows what’s up” like you said at the end. I really like that!! Thank you for all your help it’s awesome!!

  • I don’t think the name gives a negative connotation! it’s just another way of saying “the information on”, “the skinny” is just breaking down the information of the topic you’re covering. You could always try “The Low Down On…” for the remainder of the videos:) Love your channel & love you!!

  • is a whole grain bread with seeds and oats good for you?? i got it from my local bakery and it dose not have a label? just wondering if i should buy it again.

  • Read your ingredients, DON’T buy with any sugars at all. sprouted is best plus for ‘regular” bread daves killer powerseed is good, NO SUGAR

  • I LOVE THIS VIDEO! I wish I watched it earlier!!! I literally spent long long long time in the bread aisle trying to understand all the stuff in the bread!! Trying on a low carb diet, especially carb from white bread or sugar, I completely enjoyed watch every minute of this video! Thank you for making such great video!!!!

  • I usually go to a bakery and get a fresh loaf of whole grain bread. İ don’t know what is in it. There are very healthy whole grain options in supermarkets. Should I get the ones in the supermarkets or in the bakery?

  • buying bread had become a really pain the butt where i live, since my supermarket really only seems to sell two or three different brands and mostly being dominated by the hovis brand here in the uk. Needless to say the ingredients list is 6 years long and up until this point i only knew that you should buy wholemeal bread, not brown. Super informative video, and i’ll be putting to tips to use next time i go shopping.

  • Interesting what you said about bread size. I grew up in the UK but now live in the US and i think your bread slices are smaller…

  • Yay this video was really helpful:) I got a sunflower bread from a polish store, and it’s so true that their slices are half the size of ours. Anyway really liked this vid and the background setup is perfect!

  • I bake my own sourdough from scratch and it has no corn syrup! All you need is flour, water, yeast, salt. Putting corn syrup in bread makes no sense.

  • Just found your channel and I love it! Can you do a video on  which cooking oils are the healthiest and healthy alternatives for desserts? Thank you!

  • Why does everything have eggs? Celiacs often have allegies to other foods. How about some good breads that don’t have wheat or eggs or milk? Besides schaar that is.

  • Did the owner of the store come out and kindly tell you to keep the refrigeration door closed if you do not plan to buy anything?

  • I see bread with “fermented wheat flour” and “vital wheat gluten”… is this something that should be avoided in breads? (Given no sensitivity’s but want a bread that won’t spike Blood sugars as much)

  • I think it’s also important to note that a long list of ingredients isn’t always a bad thing. Some added things to the bread (like for colour) are ok but other dyes etc are not.

  • This was so helpful. I went to Trader Joe’s looking for Ezequiel bread and found out they have a Trader Joe’s line of sprouted breads. Thanks for the enlightenment on many subjects. I really appreciate all of the information as we’ve been dairy free for 1.5 years now and I’m always looking to add extra nutrition to our diet.

  • I think my favorite part of this video is actually the very confused looks on people’s faces as they pass you in the bread aisle…

  • I was so happy you said such positive things about Ezekiel bread I Love Trader Joe’s so so much!! And you’re so cute love your energy and those bloopers! I’m so addicted to your channel and your amazing content!!

  • I’ve heard that enriched wheat flour is basically just white flour, because it is stripped of key nutrients when the niacin and such are added in. Is this untrue?

  • You say not to go by what the front of the package says, but you trust in what the back of the package says.. One advice -dont believe in everything you read.. There are things that the food industry don’t label.

  • I love using Silver Hills bakery bread they are an organic local brand that most of our grocery stores carry even Costco. Love the fibre and protein and whole wheat flour. We don’t have a lot of your selections shown here in Canada.

  • How do you feel about Ezekiel or Genesis bread made from sprouting grains? I love it but only w butter which almost certainly eradicates any health benefits. ��

  • thank u always. Ur videos changed my life. I cannot thank u enough. I just wonder if u have ever done any research about ancient flour and bread made with it. Due to a lot of gmos and new proteins created by that, i believe people including myself
    go through difficult time digesting bread. I would love to knpw ur opinion in this. thanks again!

  • Just tried Ezekiel bread and loved it. In the past, I thought by buying whole wheat, I was eating healthy; thank you for opening my eyes(and introducing me to a better tasting bread).

  • I bake my own sourdough from scratch and it has no corn syrup! All you need is flour, water, yeast, salt. Putting corn syrup in bread makes no sense.

  • good to hear you tell it like it is. were responsible for what we eat. companies are responsible for their investors profits. you all do great on making these videos, thanks so much

  • Love how you go through the labels……I immediately grabbed all my bread products to check out how they compared.  I already have the Ezekiel:  )  glad to see you mention that one.

  • I’ve been trying for years to find healthy bread where I live but even the whole grain breads had loooads of additives so I just stuck to making my own bread.

  • That Silver Hills big little bread is my favorite! It’s definitely for picky people if you’re not into the sprouted taste. I noticed they sell it at target now, But they normally have it by the refrigerator is not on the normal bread aisle

  • Wow what an informative video on bread! Now that I know what kind of bread I should be looking out for, can you make a video on the type of deli meats that would be a healthier option to make a sandwich?! If you already have a video that discusses this topic you can refer me to that too ��Thanks!

  • Yes. I. Do. ��

    What do you think about making crumbs from nuts? My fav is cashews. But Now I buy mixed nuts and use them as the crust for my cheesecakes.

  • Do you have a video where you’ve explained why we should avoid high sodium content? I always hear the sodium topic on your videos but I don’t know why to avoid it. Doesn’t our body naturally need sodium to properly function?

  • I think my favorite part of this video is actually the very confused looks on people’s faces as they pass you in the bread aisle…

  • Bobby, Ezekiel bread has soy beans. It is my understanding soy beans are bad, specially sprouted soy beans. Had you looked in to the negative impact of soy beans?

  • Good morning Bobby! Love your videos. Any info on sunflower flour? I just found a recipe using sunflower flour (think the person ground their own) to make bread. I’m keto and looking for another option other than almond or coconut flour (want to mix things up). Thanks!

  • What are your opinions on Ezekiel bread versus a traditional whole grain bread? I’ve been transitioning to a healthier lifestyle and have noticed people talking about it as a “complete protein” are there really any actual benefits?

  • Bobby, question for you as i’m a bit confused now one of the sprouted breads you said ‘sure, it has a little tapioca flour’ but that was the third ingredient; aren’t ingredients listed from most to least used? the bread that you said isn’t as good had tapioca listed as third as well… or does the order of ingredients not matter?

  • just found these videos yesterday love them! thank you for taking the time to make them! skinny on packed snacks? besides nuts and bars its hard to bring things to work! thank you so much

  • I know this is an older video but I wanted to put this out here because it’s great info! Check out bread Becker’s. Such great info about fresh flour versus the traditional packaged grocery store kind. Game changer!! We have had so many wonderful health benefits from milling our own grains and baking bread. Unbelievable.

  • Ok just discovered you, i know i know! Lol BUT OMG what a wealth of information. I have been watching ALL your videos! No wonder america is SO sick. Thank you for doing this research for us and teaching us what we should be eating!!! Seriously mind blown! I thought i knew enough but no so. Thank you Thank you! Plus good to see Chicago in the background and Arts cubs shirt as it is my home town!

  • This is the deal…I see allot of people talking about how much healthy food cost…but how much does it cost when you go to DOCTORS office because SOMETHING you ate makes you sick? Ok BUY THE BREAD ANNA MAE!!!! It will save you LOTS of trips to the doctor. Enjoy your day! You’re welcome! Thanks Bobby

  • Does sprouted really make a difference? And whole-grain vs refined actually doesn’t make much of a difference when it’s not fermented/sprouted. The added anti-nutrients counter-balance that little bit of nutrients in the whole-grain.

    I would always go for slow-fermented sourdough bread which I guess you won’t find in the packaged bread section. Go to the bakery, make it yourself or go for keto bread.

  • This is so informative! I think it was a couple weeks ago I did a grocery haul and was shocked that almost all the breadcrumbs had high fructose corn syrup in them. I didn’t understand. This is such an informative video

  • Bobby, Ezekiel bread has soy beans. It is my understanding soy beans are bad, specially sprouted soy beans. Had you looked in to the negative impact of soy beans?

  • Wow what an informative video on bread! Now that I know what kind of bread I should be looking out for, can you make a video on the type of deli meats that would be a healthier option to make a sandwich?! If you already have a video that discusses this topic you can refer me to that too ��Thanks!

  • I can’t remember if you have one of these videos yet, but if you don’t it would be great to see a “truth about junk food” sort of video. Even people who make healthier choices still like to have a treat here and there and I’d like to know what to look for in some of my favorite indulgences. For example, plain potato chips usually have fewer ingredients (just potatoes, salt and some kind of vegetable oil) than things like cheetos and snacks with lots of artificial flavors. Does this mean that they are a better choice when enjoyed in moderation? Or are they bad enough since they offer so little nutritional value that it doesn’t really matter which kind you have as long as you don’t eat too many? thanks!

  • wondering if there’s any brioche in the market that is healthy? I really like how it tastes, but usually the ingredients are not clean (vegetable oils and tons of sugar…).

  • you are FANTASTIC! Coming from a nutrition student and aspiring dietitian, your information is not only accurate but very relatable and easily understood! I LOVE your videos!

  • Hi Becca! I recently new to your channel. And I honestly would keep the name. The reason why is your title was initially what sparked me watching your videos. Grocery goddess might have turn me off. Love all your vids! Keep up the good work!

  • Since new ownership, the ingredients on ALL Dave’s Killer Bread has changed updated ingredients are on their website. They added expeller pressed CANOLA oil. The old recipe worked just fine this really SUCKS especially for those with canola oil allergies/sensitivities. If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it.

  • All advertised” healthy breads” including daves killer breads and ezekiel breads. Dave in last 6 month has gone up to 6 bucks a loaf andnow has oil in it.which makes bread gummy and hard to spread say PB. Toasting it lightly causes it to be hard lime stale. Ezekiel bread tried again after years of not eating. Too expensive for me. It is hard to chew like stale and the tag shows 3 more days freshness. Frozen and defrosted both bought in store. I am so frustrated. I can’t afford 6 bucks a loaf and doubt bed the oil in any healthy bread that changes taste or makes like brick. And ezekiel bread is hard before you start and TNT is expensive 5-6. A loaf. Help!! I hate the big conglomerate companies the ingredients are 4 inches long. That’s horrible

  • i’m starting to watch your videos and love it, thanks for all the information you gave.
    i think i’ll start eating healthier from now on:D

  • Ok just discovered you, i know i know! Lol BUT OMG what a wealth of information. I have been watching ALL your videos! No wonder america is SO sick. Thank you for doing this research for us and teaching us what we should be eating!!! Seriously mind blown! I thought i knew enough but no so. Thank you Thank you!

  • These are very instructive, but to nitpick”chemicals” drives me nuts (EVERYTHING has chemicals)m perhaps over-processed, stuff you can’t pronounce, etc. etc. Still good though. Dave’s Killer Bread is excellent.

  • can you do a skinny on milks? like almond, rice, coconut etc etc…. there’s so many kinds of milk on the market.. i think you should leave the series as it is, it’s catchy, it stands out, and it makes people click on it, and the content is what makes the message good or bad and the content is great and informative

  • Thank u I needed this been doin keto for months now I’ve lost a 114 pds but really missed bras 2 make wit sandwiches now I found some yessir ������

  • I don’t think the name gives a negative connotation! it’s just another way of saying “the information on”, “the skinny” is just breaking down the information of the topic you’re covering. You could always try “The Low Down On…” for the remainder of the videos:) Love your channel & love you!!

  • I lost interest in your boring long presentation.. Should have gone straight to the ingerients and then talk about the pro’s and con’s

  • Just tried Ezekiel bread and loved it. In the past, I thought by buying whole wheat, I was eating healthy; thank you for opening my eyes(and introducing me to a better tasting bread).

  • I have been on the hunt to learn more about bread and making better choices for my family. Thank you so much for this informational video!!!

  • Hi All! I am confused about the cracked wheat part because I thought cracked wheat is nutritious since the bran and germ are still included. Does anyone have any insights to this?

  • I do enjoy Ezekiel bread but it does not do well for my blood sugar and there are other videos on YT where Ezekiel bread caused higher blood sugar spikes than typical wheat and white bread

  • Oh my god I just started watching your videos today and I can’t stop your soooo helpful I just bought peanut butter!!!! INGREDIENTS: peanuts and salt. Thanks for your help!!! Oh yeah and plain yogurt I’ll be trying it with cinnamon and vanilla extract!!!!!

  • I lost interest in your boring long presentation.. Should have gone straight to the ingerients and then talk about the pro’s and con’s

  • wondering if there’s any brioche in the market that is healthy? I really like how it tastes, but usually the ingredients are not clean (vegetable oils and tons of sugar…).

  • I stumbled upon your videos and love them! Do you have any recommendation on types of food that are beneficial for the brain. I’m in the process of finals, studying for the GRE, on top of being a type 1 diabetic and looking for a boost in my diet to get me though this month. I would love to hear your recommendations. In good health, Melissa

  • Hi Becca! I’m a huge fan of your channel. Your posts are so interesting and you have such a good energy. I wanted to ask if you could please do a post about foods that help metabolise fat and turn it into energy

  • You should keep the name but add “knows what’s up” like you said at the end. I really like that!! Thank you for all your help it’s awesome!!

  • I love your videos! I’ve noticed that you use the term “clean” a lot when talking about food. Do you have any videos where you discuss the meaning/implications of calling foods “clean”? I’m a little turned off by this word as there seems to be many interpretations of what it may mean and no standard definition.

  • Would you do a video on protein powders? My boyfriend and I cant decide what kinds of protein powders to get that would benefit the both of us.:)

  • Good morning Bobby! Love your videos. Any info on sunflower flour? I just found a recipe using sunflower flour (think the person ground their own) to make bread. I’m keto and looking for another option other than almond or coconut flour (want to mix things up). Thanks!

  • I appreciated the video but wouldn’t pay retail price for a loaf of bread just to turn it into breadcrumbs. The amount that you made may be enough for wouldn’t be enough for my family of 3 plus leftovers. But croutons I can do!

  • I know this is an older video but I wanted to put this out here because it’s great info! Check out bread Becker’s. Such great info about fresh flour versus the traditional packaged grocery store kind. Game changer!! We have had so many wonderful health benefits from milling our own grains and baking bread. Unbelievable.

  • Since one of the breads you talked about was “12 Grain” I wish you had addressed the fact that “multigrain”-type labels on bread don’t necessarily indicate whole grain or healthy options. A lot of times its white bread with some seeds thrown in. It’s super important to look at the label and see if whole grain wheat flour is the main ingredient with those types! Great video, really enjoyed it, and I’ll be checking sodium content from now on (didn’t realize it could be so high)!

  • Or just make your own bread…. I make my own it’s easy just a couple of hours and you have homemade bread… and the great thing is I know what’s going in my bread….love your videos mind over munch!

  • Grocery guide Sound so good because it has a cool touch to it, Also because I know of another youtuber that’s her channel name is healthygrocerygirl and that’s her special name for her business so ya that sounds so cool I love it I think others would love it to. I think you should use it and go with what you were thing to do because you should do it, I love and like with what you came up with.!:-) I love watching your videos they give me inspiration and awesome Knowledge.!:-)

  • is a whole grain bread with seeds and oats good for you?? i got it from my local bakery and it dose not have a label? just wondering if i should buy it again.

  • can you do a skinny on milks? like almond, rice, coconut etc etc…. there’s so many kinds of milk on the market.. i think you should leave the series as it is, it’s catchy, it stands out, and it makes people click on it, and the content is what makes the message good or bad and the content is great and informative

  • Yay this video was really helpful:) I got a sunflower bread from a polish store, and it’s so true that their slices are half the size of ours. Anyway really liked this vid and the background setup is perfect!

  • Just found your channel and I love it! Can you do a video on  which cooking oils are the healthiest and healthy alternatives for desserts? Thank you!

  • seriously,in-the-U.K,we-hardly-have-any-wholewheat-bread-anywhere,it’s-all-white,brown-and-wholemeal-bread-or-pay-for-expensive-online-stuff,really-annoying…

  • buying bread had become a really pain the butt where i live, since my supermarket really only seems to sell two or three different brands and mostly being dominated by the hovis brand here in the uk. Needless to say the ingredients list is 6 years long and up until this point i only knew that you should buy wholemeal bread, not brown. Super informative video, and i’ll be putting to tips to use next time i go shopping.
