National Bread Month!

November is National Bread Month. How many times a week do you use bread? It’s a staple at our house and we use it for tons of things–eggs and toast in the morning, turkey sandwiches at lunch, a side at dinner, buns for burgers….

Did you know this year marks the 250th year anniversary of the sandwich?! In 1762, Sir John Montagu, the 4th Earl of Sandwich, requested his dinner meat be served between two slices of bread because he didn’t want to put his cards down in the middle of a game of poker. And the sandwich was born! Ha, love it. Best Sir John Montagu didn’t even know what he started.

Our favorite? A peanut butter banana sandwich. Yummmm. Grill it and add some syrup? Even better. Oh it’s SO good and it’s great for Ryan and, bonus, he loves to eat it.

Celebrity Chef Bryan Voltaggio has a similar recipe, but his has honey, too. Hmmm…. I  might need to add that next time!

Bread (and grain foods) have a lot of essential nutrients we need to stay healthy and fight disease. They’re a great source of fiber and complex carbs and you should have six 1-ounce servings each day! That includes bread, bagels, buns, crackers, and tortillas… so go make yourself a sandwich! 😉

What’s your favorite kind of sandwich? Or your favorite way to eat whole grains?


I wrote this review while participating in a blog tour for Mom Central Consulting on behalf of the Grain Foods Foundation. I received a promotional item to thank me for taking the time to participate.
