Genuine Bavarian Rye Bread

These dense, chewy rye slices are bigger than they look. They pack a load of whole-grain soluble fiber in one tiny slice, which helps keep you satisfied for much longer than refined flour does. The soluble fiber in rye also helps regulate blood-sugar levels by slowing the conversion of carbohydrates into sugar, and it forms a nice gel-like substance in the intestines to mop up dietary toxins and ship them out efficiently. While the digestive benefits of rye slices are nice, it’s their flavor that will win you over. The slightly sweet-sour taste adds a great flavor note to tuna and egg salad, cheeses – even nut butters. They also make a terrific breakfast toast, a great way to get some protein and fiber in the morning without overloading your digestion right out of the gate. 

Look for the gluten-free Genuine Bavarian brand at better grocery stores and natural groceries; about $2.50 a loaf.
