With people turning to low-carb diets (hello, Paleo!), bread has mostly fallen out of favor for health and weight-conscious consumers. What they don’t know is that they can still eat bread; it’s just a matter of choosing the healthier options. The following are the types of bread you should still include in your grocery cart:
Whole-wheat bread is packed with nutrients. That’s because in its purest form, whole wheat contains plenty of vitamins, minerals, fiber and protein. White flour is processed wheat without all that good stuff so choosing 100 percent whole wheat is the best bet to keep healthy.

Gluten is a protein composite commonly found in wheat and grains. Going gluten-free is a diet especially recommended for those who suffer from celiac disease but it became popular as a weight-loss diet for many celebrities. This type of bread is recommended for people with wheat allergy as a healthy alternative.
Rye bread is one of the healthiest bread types that people can eat without worrying about extra calories. Rye bread contains fewer calories but can make people feel fuller longer and can relieve discomfort and bloating.
