Bread: (n) food made of flour, water, and yeast, mixed together and baked.
“Man shall not live by bread alone.”
The carbs will kill ya’.
Bread is part of the great American hypocrisy.
- It is high in calories.
- It is loaded with overwrought carbohydrates
- And it is extremely tasty–especially when it’s soft and covered with buttery jellied substances, which are also silent killers.
So even though man cannot live by bread alone, it’s ridiculous to think that man can live without bread.
Would America survive without a sandwich?
Who would be prepared to have their Big Mac wrapped in organic lettuce leaves?
So we try to cut calories by slicing the bread thinner–and to some degree this works, because the concept of lean bread is better than the meanness of no bread.
But sooner or later we must come up with an answer that is functional to human beings, just as we are. Maybe we would like everyone to be slender and heathy, having just finished a great cardio, devouring a salad with low-fat dressing. But isn’t it time to realize that this will just never happen?
So instead, let’s kick out all those trainers and dietitians–and hire a bunch of researchers to come up with a bread … that won’t leave us dead.
