5 Health Benefits of Eating Organic Bread

Breads are basically one of the universal foods available wherever you go. It is affordable and can complement a meal or make a meal possible whenever bread is necessary. The many types of bread products easily creates a wide range of options for your consumption needs, and the quality remains a major detail in whether or not you want to eat it. It is even more important to know why organic breads, such as those available at Klosterman Baking Company, are not only healthier but generally better for the earth.

Why Organic Differs from Other Options

To be certified organic, the bread must use ingredients that are free of pesticides, chemicals, and genetically modified organisms. This ensures that non-foreign and unwanted substances stay out of the final product. These foreign substances are linked to cancers and other health problems that may affect those who consume them, especially when consumed over a long period of time.

The Science behind Whole Grains

The process requires that the milled grains not have husks or other parts removed before milling. A greater amount of protein, vitamins and minerals will be left in the final flours used to bake the bread. The nutritionally dense and heartier results of these breads makes them ideal for those who want to have a great tasting option that is also filling.

Weight Loss as a Side Effect

Eating organic and whole grain breads makes it possible to lose weight due to the fact that you feel fuller with less food. You can then spend less time thinking about eating and get the benefit of losing weight by maintaining a better balanced diet that you are less likely to cheat on.

Better Digestion with Organic Breads

Not only does using whole grains make bread have more substance, it also retains bran fiber to help you feel fuller and help keep you regular with your bowel movements. This alone may impact the lives of many who are constantly constipated who avoid breads and other products that compact in their bowels due to the heavy processing they go through. Organic breads have minimal processing, which makes them easier to digest and provide the benefit of allowing more nutrients to be absorbed with your body’s natural digestion processes.

Straight from Farms to Breads

Reduction of chemical treatments, genetic modification and other unnatural processes to commit the grains to flours for breads mean that organic bread takes far less processing and reduces the impact on the earth. Lower energy use, prevention of chemicals leaching into the ground water and decreased risk of damaging wildlife by preventing genetically modified organisms getting into the wild really helps to maintain a more natural earth.

10 Reasons Moe's Will Always And Forever Be Superior To Chipotle

Welcome to Moe's!

With the great debate between which burrito place is the best, here are 10 reasons why Moe's is clearly the better option than Chipotle. *Side note, I do like Chipotle, but Moe's will always be No. 1 in my heart.

1. WELCOME TO MOE'S!

You don't get this kind of hospitality from Chipotle.

2. Their menu is much larger.

Moe's offers burritos, quesadillas, nachos, burrito bowls, tacos, salads, and they all have cool names! Chipotle just has burritos, bowls, tacos, and salads. BORING.

3. They offer a variety of toppings.


Moe's offers over 20 fresh ingredients while Chipotle has...barely anything. :/

4. Moe Monday.

$5 BURRITOS!!!!! Seriously no one can beat that.

5. Their prices in general.


At Chipotle it's $6.50 just for a for a burrito alone. Add on chips, guac and a drink and that's roughly $13. At Moe's you can get a burrito, chips, unlimited salsa, and a drink for $8.80. Add on queso and that's only $1.25 more. (But totally worth it!!!) Which brings me to my next case...

6. QUESO!!!!!!!!!!

Queso is bae. That is all.

7. Free chips and a salsa bar!

We don't pay extra here.

8. The atmosphere at Moe's just feels better.

Chipotle's are usually tiny little restaurants that barely have any tables. Every time I go to Chipotle I feel rushed to eat my food because people are usually hovering over you looking for a seat. Moe's is like five times it size and they play good music.

9. Moe's is made with FRESH ingredients.


I'm not even gonna get into the whole Chipotle situation...

10. Overall, Moe's just tastes better than Chipotle.


Sorry 'bout it.

Coffee Drinks You Need To Try If You're Willing To Go Outside Your Comfort Zone

Even if you like your coffee black, I have some drinks you might want to try.

Here are some quick little changes to add to your typical coffee order!

Starting with things to add to a regular old cup of coffee, you could order a cafe au lait. A cafe au lait is half your medium/dark roast coffee with half steamed milk. For the espresso drinks, ask to add a raw sugar in with the espresso. Personally, this is my favorite because it adds a little bit of sweetness, but not much at all. I like a lot of foam with my lattes, so I will order a cappuccino, which are the shots of espresso and more dry foam filled to the top. Keep in mind: you can add any syrup flavor to these drinks.

Most people who go out for coffee stick with the same order; I asked one customer if they would like to try the oat milk with their french vanilla latte.. and get this! He liked it and orders it with oat milk every time! Whether you're dairy-free or not, trying different types of milk in your coffee is fun!

There is typically oat milk, coconut milk and almond milk at coffee shops. Switch out the whole milk for almond milk and it's a whole new taste on the latte! Non-dairy milk is also better for you, especially your skin! Remember that cafe au lait I was talking about earlier? You can make it iced! The barista will take their cold brew concentrate and put it over ice, with your choice of milk poured on top!

Always ask to see what kind of syrups the coffee shop has because most do have more than just vanilla and caramel! My personal favorites are butterscotch and maple! The peppermint mocha is always one of my easy favorites to order, as well. You chai lovers! Add vanilla or blackberry syrup to your typical chai, it's like a whole new drink!

On the coffee stand, there's usually honey and cinnamon. With any drink you order, even tea, honey will make a huge difference in your choice of drink. Next time you go to a coffee shop, look at the syrup flavors, ask questions, and maybe try a new kind of milk! Also remember, just because fall season is coming up and it's getting a little chilly out, doesn't mean you have to stop getting iced coffee.
