.....or rather, reverted.....back.....to white bread, that is. Yes, and I'll just shout out "Hallelujah" from the rooftops, because my sandwiches are good again!
I grew up on white bread. My parents still eat white bread. My healthy grandparents ate white bread their whole lives, and my good grandfather still does at a ripe age of ninety. But years ago I made the decision to fore go the refined sugar-simple carbohydrate-bleached flour in favor of more nutritious crusts of whole grain-complex carb-wheatness. I switched for the sake of nutrition, yes, and I can't say I regret it. Eating healthier is always a good thing.
But I'm glad I'm back. Peanut butter and jelly sandwiches taste best on white bread, and there's nothing like a warm, melty grilled cheese sandwich on white bread. Paninis are most delicious on white, and egg salad too.
Now, I won't argue with anyone on the subject of nutrition here. I won't even argue on the basis of taste - hey, if you love dark, whole grain breads - good for you! As for me, these past few years I've tried every possible bread variety and brand that exists, whether from the grocery store or the local bakery, and all I have to say is.....well....I've already said it.
This morning I consumed pan-toasted potato bread with rosemary and raisins, topped with a hint of boysenberry preserves. Mmmm......
Life is good.
