Without any doubt, you can call me a Carboholic. I love it all: pasta, bread, rice, oatmeal ... yum!! But although I have never been a part of the Atkins bandwagon, I am sensible enough to know that enough is enough in terms of these goodies. Therefore, I am always on the lookout for a nice lower calorie, high nutrient sandwich bread. Arnold's Bakery Light Wheat Bread fits that bill to a T. With 80 calories per two slice serving, there's no need to worry about making your sandwich "open faced".
For a "light" bread, the taste did not disappoint. It is dense, nutty, and slightly sweet, paired perfectly with either a nut butter and jam, or lunch meat. My standard turkey sandwich had new flavor, and the added fiber did its job, satisfying me for hours.
Each 2 slice serving also contains 0.5 grams of fat (none saturated), 5 grams of protein, 17 grams of carbohydrates, and a whopping 5 grams of fiber! I was really impressed with the stats on this product, as I aim to get at least 30 grams of fiber per day.
I'll admit, the cost was a little steep for this loaf of bread. I purchased it at my local grocery store for $3.89, a good two dollars over the price of a regular loaf. However, I rationalized the cost in the fact that most loaves of bread are getting pricey these days, and for over a weeks worth of lunches, the splurge was worth it.
