How to get more plant-based foods in your diet with bread

Bakers Maison - Plant Based Bread

It is becoming increasingly evident that a plant-based diet has many health benefits including lowering your risk of cardiovascular disease, certain types of cancers, and obesity.

 

What is a plant-based diet?

A plant-based diet is centered on real, whole, or minimally processed food. It’s a diet based on fruits, vegetables, whole grains, and legumes (all beans, peas, lentils), nuts, healthy fats, and water while minimising or excluding consumption of meat, soda, and highly processed foods.

 

Can bread be a part of a plant-based diet?

Absolutely. In fact, bread, i.e. Sandwiches, can serve as a vehicle to get more plant foods in the diet. For instance, how about our Bakers Maison toasted Panini stuffed with grilled Mediterranean veggies and fetta. Or a Bakers Maison crunchy Baguette with tempeh bacon, lettuce, tomato and smashed avocado. Even a nut butter (peanut butter, almond, etc.) On our gluten-free Multigrain Toast is a great way to get in plant proteins and a balanced meal with healthy carbohydrates, plant proteins, and healthy fats. The options are abundant and the addition of whole-grain breads adds to a satisfying and filling component due to the fibre content as well. In addition, grains offer key micronutrients to help you meet your needs on a plant-based or vegetarian diet.

For vegetarians and even vegans, most often bread is acceptable into the diet, but be sure to read your labels. A vegan would generally avoid ingredients such as eggs, milk, honey and royal jelly, casein and whey, and gelatin. Other ingredients, such as mono and diglycerides and lecithin, are typically plant-derived but can be from animal sources. At Bakers Maison, when choosing our Plant-Based bread variety, you can be sure that no animal products were used in the production stages.

At Bakers Maison, respecting the environment and reducing our carbon footprint is a mission we are proud to fulfil. Following a plant-based diet forces a stronger focus on what foods are going into your body while lessening your carbon footprint on the planet. Live a healthier life, lower your risk of disease, and even lose weight without counting calories on a plant-based diet while being good to the environment.

 

A predominantly plant-based diet has so many benefits and no downside. 

Overall plant-based proteins diets are sustainable, affordable, and nutritious while being tremendously versatile. In addition to all fruits and vegetables, including whole grains such as barley, quinoa, rice, whole wheat, oats, millet, and so much more. When it comes to breads, keep them predominantly whole grain and high in fiber for the biggest health benefit.
