Give Us Our Daily Bread

A couple of years ago, in a fit of nutritional improvement, I read a book that had the mantra "better unfed than white bread," because the authors looked at the humble loaf as a poor source of energy. We mostly keep wheat bread in the house, but I took this statement sadly, because I do love a nice hot loaf of French bread, mmmm.

Fortunately, SwingDaddy noted my tendency to fade quickly without continuous nourishment and came up with a new jingle for our household: "Better white bread than dead."

Much better.

I must admit, I'm normally a freak about whole grain bread, but for a nice crusty loaf dipped in cheese fondue? Well, that's a whole nother story, in't it?

So what do you think the author of that book would say about Uncrustables on wheat bread. Yep, my kids eat those. I'm sure it's whole grain goodness. (Thank you in advance for not correcting me. I'm happy here in Sheri's Happy Place!)

I'll eat any kind of bread. Carbs are an addiction for me! :)

Adorable photo, too!
