How Can Bread, Olive Oil, Bread Dipping, And Dipping Dishes Lead To A Better And Healthy Heart?

A renowned New York surgeon, Dr. Oz, recommends eating a small amount of 100 % whole grain bread dipped in extra virgin olive oil before eating dinner to promote heart health. The basis is that the 100 percent whole grain bread provides fiber, which Dr. Oz says, “slows the movement of food through your stomach.” In addition to the added flavor and moisture of the olive oil to what is considered “bland food,” the extra virgin olive oil is very rich in Antioxidants and Vitamin E.  Dr. Oz claims that the combination of 100% whole grain bread and extra virgin olive oil together, gives “wonderful nutrition to feed the liver,” and reduces your risk of heart attack and diabetes.
Because of the tremendous health benefits of 100 % whole grain bread and extra virgin olive oil, this before dinner appetizer makes an outstanding h’ordeuvres.

The bread recommendation is 100 percent whole grain. Whole grains provide healthy antioxidants and B vitamins and should contain the seed of one or more grains such as wheat, barley, rye, oats, or brown rice. It is recommended that adults should consume approximately six to eight ounces of grains per day.  At least half of those grains should be of whole grains. One slice of bread is the equivalent of one ounce of the daily grain recommendation.

When purchasing bread, be sure to read the ingredients label on the back to check the ingredients. The first ingredient mentioned should be a whole grain of wheat, rye, oats, barley, or brown rice.
