Did you know that today, April 1st, is National Sourdough Bread day? No omelet is complete with a slice of sourdough. If you're trying to choose quality carbs in your diet, then choose sourdough bread. Why is it any better since it's made with flour just like any other bread? Well firstly, sourdough is fermented so, one, it's easier to digest, and two, studies suggest that the vitamins and minerals in sourdough are more bioavailable. Again, this related to the fermentation. Sourdough bread is also lower glycemic than regular bread. The reason for this is still unclear. One of the suggested reasons is that lactic acid produced by fermentation bacteria helps to slow down digestion, thereby slowing the release of sugar into the bloodstream. But whatever the reason and whatever the health benefits, sourdough bread is so good!!!
The omelet is single serving or can be split into two portions. It provides a hefty 30g protein, so will leave you feeling satisfied for hours. Have it on it's own, with a salad or a small slice of sourdough for a super duper blood sugar balancing meal. Use your favourite veggie or cheese.
