Fresh bread…what’s not to love?

I don’t know about you but I can’t seem to resist fresh bread. If you bring a fresh loaf of crusty bread to my house it will not last long. Warmed through in the oven to crisp up the crust and steam the soft centre and then slathered with butter. And hearing that crunch when I bite into it against that soft airy centre. And I like to blame the ‘newlywed happy weight’ for my extra pounds, but I think I know where I am going wrong. But what can I do, I need it for my ‘work’.

Yet it seems sad that all we eat are these convenient loaves from the supermarket that have little flavour and can be squashed back into dough. Don’t get me wrong I buy slice bread all the time, but I do wonder what’s in it. I see the difference in quality when I buy a fresh loaf and it makes me question what I am buying.

Do we really know what’s in our food? After watching so many programs on food and health, I don’t know what to believe anymore. Back in the day people had no choice but to buy bread from their local bakery, knowing that it was made by hand. But now we buy bread that is massed produced in a factory and seems to be full of preservatives. What do you think?
