I love bread! But not all bread is equal. As a health coach, I do not believe in eliminating foods. I know some people think you should give up certain foods but I think it can set you up for binging on that food later. This post is about my experience with the baked good and pasta from my Wildgrain Box.
It really doesn’t get much easier than turning on the oven and placing your bread in for 20-25 minutes and having fresh bread that is not only delicious but good for you!
What I do believe in is finding foods that you love that you can eat in moderation and that are still good for you.
How is a Wildgrain Box different?
First, they support the BEST small bakeries in the country. Wildgrain is a subscription box filled with sourdough bread, artisanal pastries, and fresh pasta.
Why sourdough bread? A sourdough started is a fermented mixture of flour and water. It contains colonies of bacteria and yeast. The fermentation process used to make sourdough bread actually provides health benefits.
- It digests the majority of gluten in the bread.
- It contains lactic acid, helping your body absorb more nutrients.
- It contains prebiotics to keep your gut healthy.
I love this article from Well + Good, “The Gluten-Free Way to Enjoy Bread: Long Fermentation”.
“When you make long-fermented bread, it doesn’t spike blood sugar, and has more magnesium, zinc, iron, and B12 in it,” says Sharp, who co-authored Super Loaves and Simple Treats, a collection of mouthwatering recipes for breads, buns, cakes, cookies and more, with her head baker, Lindsay Stark.
An example of what may be included in you Wildgrain Subscription Box?
- sourdough country bread
- wheat bread – sourdough
- sourdough harvest bread
- 12 oz pack of fresh, hand-cut linguine
- 12oz pack of fresh, hand-cut pappardelle
- 4 sourdough croissants
My review of the Wildgrain Box:
Like I said earlier, I love bread! And this did not disappoint! It was so easy and so delicious. I am not one to have bread around my house but if I do this is what I want. Even my husband who is not a big fan of sourdough bread (he prefers ice cream) loved it as well.
And the pasta was amazing. Again, I do not eat much pasta but when I do I want it fresh and full of clean ingredients. This is by far my husband’s favorite part of the Wildgrain box.
You really can not go wrong here and if you use my code Deanna10 you will receive $10 off your first order of Wildgrain.
Great Food Ideas with Wildgrain Box ingredients:
When I have all of my children for dinner, I love serving fresh bread. I served the bread hot with butter and the whole family enjoyed it. I love to make avocado toast with the leftovers (if there are any).
My Avocado Toast with Wildgrain bread
Toast the bread.
Mash up half an avocado and spread on bread.
Sprinkle with salt, pepper, and hemp hearts
Add a boiled egg on top.
The other way I like to eat it is to toast it and put cottage cheese, flax, cinnamon, and berries on top.
We made the pasta the other night and I made a butter sauce and sautéed some shrimp to go on top of the pasta. It was better than going to a restaurant.
My overall review of the Wildgrain Box
Yes!! I would highly recommend it. I am on the subscription program myself and I love it. I can adjust my subscription to the time frame that is good for me. I can also cancel at any time.
