Healthier Bread For The New Year

Posted by

Well, my friends, the new year has arrived! Have you set New Year’s resolutions for yourself this year? Or, if you are not doing resolutions this year (you aren’t the only one), maybe you just want to improve your health and cut back on unhealthy foods. That’s my plan and because I’m not really wanting to hop on board with a specific diet,

I’m all about making the food that I eat healthier. I plan to include more fresh fruits and vegetables, more healthy protein and I’m even going to add healthier bread for the new year!

Despite all the click-bait headlines, ads and videos you may see come across your timeline, you don’t need to avoid bread in order to eat health. There are quite a few types of bread that are high in vitamins, minerals and fiber which are all beneficial for health and good nutrition.

The key is to steer clear of refined grains and lots of additives. Making these delicious breads homemade is the key to ensuring that your bread is delicious and healthy.

Oh, and don’t worry, some of the healthiest breads that you can choose to add into your diet are all quite delicious. I know many people are afraid that the healthy breads aren’t tasty breads and that is simply not true.

What tools Should I Use to Make Healthier Bread?


You knew we were going to give you some suggestions on which Sassasfras® tools you should be using to make yourself some delicious and much healthier bread for the new year. I think I may be biased here, but I am a big lover of the superstone® covered baker and I think it makes hands down the best of the best when it comes to homemade bread.

Superstone® Covered Baker

If you don’t yet have the Superstone® Covered Baker, you are missing out! This thing can turn a boring loaf of homemade bread into a bread that you want to include with all of your meals.

Its unglazed interior pulls moisture from the dough, replicating the effects of a brick-lined oven giving you a light yet crusty exterior loaf. if you’re a bread baker and enjoy baking different types and shapes of bread, this baker is terrific.

Superstone® La Cloche

If you are looking for bakeware that make a rounder shaped bread, then the original Superstone® la cloche is what you need. The la cloche always creates the perfect homemade bread for me. The la cloche® replicates a professional brick-lined oven, creating a bread always has the perfect crispy texture and the inside of the bread is soft and deliciously chewy!
