Bread. It's possibly the best food to ever have been invented, available in several different forms and providing endless delicious creations for any meal.

However, not all bread is good for us (sadly). White bread, a staple of many Americans' diets, is high in simple carbohydrates that cause high blood sugar, and it's low in fiber and many essential vitamins. Additionally, many varieties are highly processed and full of sodium.

Thankfully, there is hope for health in the prominent world of bread. Barely Bread, along with other health food companies, have created a bread that provides several nutritious benefits while still being delicious.

Their products, which include bagels, loaves, baguettes, and rolls, are 100% grain-free, gluten-free, non-GMO, and certified paleo. Meaning they're all-natural without all the extra sugars and carbs that come in your average bread products

So if the bread is grain-free, then what is it made of? Well, Barely Bread has perfected a combination of a base of almond flour along with natural ingredients like applesauce, coconut oil, cinnamon, flax seed, organic eggs, honey, and apple cider vinegar, to name just a few.

All ingredients in the nutrition panel are pronounceable, meaning you know they're actually real, and not just made up in a factory somewhere

Each product contains 3 grams or more of protein, around 1 gram of net carbs, 5 grams or more of fiber, and omega-3's from the flax seeds. Additionally, they're free of yeast, soy, dairy, and artificial flavors and preservatives. 

With all these super natural ingredients, the bread tastes just as great, if not better, than the average bread products you'd buy at the store. And with all the nutritional benefits you get by eating them, you're sure to feel healthy and satisfied.

Barely Bread products come in a variety of delicious flavors, including plain and cinnamon raisin loaves, olive and onion-garlic-sea salt baguettes, cinnamon raisin and onion-garlic-sea salt bagels, and savory rolls. You can find their products online (they ship nationwide!) as well as at a handful of retailers

These lend to endless opportunities for bomb recipes, from huge breakfast bagel sandwiches to pretty avocado toasts to elaborate grilled cheeses, making bread perfectly okay to enjoy at every meal while still being healthy and filling your body with wholesome nutrition
