Rye Bread

I'm beginning to think that I have been seriously food deprived throughout my life. There are so many things that I have never tried before, to include Rye Bread. I bought some Jewish Rye Bread this weekend because it just looked yummy. Rye bread is made with various percentages of flour from the rye grain. The color will vary from light to dark depending on the type of flour used and if any coloring agents were added. Rye bread is higher in fiber than most other types of bread. It also contains very little fat. One benefit of Rye bread is that it does not create high spikes in blood sugar like white bread and some other breads do. It has a very unique flavor and I've been told that it's great with corned beef or pastrami sandwiches. I really enjoyed the flavor of it, as it was so different than white or wheat. Rye won't be my "standard" bread, but it will definitely be an added treat every now and then when I want a different flavor/texture.

    Rye toast is sooooooooooo yummy. My step-father grew up in a Jewish family in NYC - I learned of rye bread at a very young age. Super yummy - especially the stuff you can get from NYC bakeries. Grandma still lives in NYC, by herself, at age 95 - she sends bread to my parents, or they get some when they go down to visit...mmmmmm. Of course, that means to get it I have to go visit my parents... :-) Any excuse, right? Ha!

    Rye bread is wonderful and very good for you. Rye bread with peanut butter is touted as being one of the best hunger fighters especially good for breakfast!
