If I'm desperate, sick, or busy, I will buy bread. It's whatever is the cheapest and what I would call, "duck bread." You know, the kind of bread that you would feed the ducks?
As part of the FoodBuzz Tastemaker program, I opted in to receive some bread from Nature's Pride. I was expecting a loaf of white or wheat bread to show up, but this is what showed up on my doorstep...
Country White Bakery Buns
100% Whole Wheat Bakery Buns
Country White Deli Rolls
The very first thing I did was turn the packages over and read the ingredients. Nature's Pride makes their bread with 100% all natural ingredients. No preservatives! If you can't pronounce an ingredient or know what it is, toss it. That's my motto.
The next thing I did was look at the nutrition label. The white breads boast 25% less sodium, 0 grams of transfat, and 7 grams of protein per serving.
The wheat bread contains 36 grams of whole grains and 25% less sodium, and 0 grams of transfat per serving. That's pretty darn good.
I was feeling tired and hungry and wanted a quick dinner. I pulled out some of my homemade Marvelous Meatballs and leftover spaghetti sauce from the freezer.
I really wanted to put some mozzarella cheese on this and melt it, but hubby downed this pretty quickly...and wanted another one ~
They are so good, they deserve a post all to themselves....stay tuned!
The verdict? I would definitely be skipping the "duck bread" and looking for these breads the next time I'm at the supermarket. These are the next best thing to homemade....soft, fresh and full of flavor.
Thanks FoodBuzz and Nature's Pride!
