What The Boy and I like to call "neutral" bread. It's technically white, but actually tastes like bread and not sweet-as pound cake. Hence, the trips out of town and out of the way just to get some bread. Whole wheat (the "whole" is important!) is a second choice. (Also without the sweet taste.)

Grocery shopping is decidedly less stressful than most anything else shopping. ...This does not include the attempt to drive home through a roundabout that Americans continue to refuse to use properly and the stop light that half of the time only turns green once a second car has lined up. Grr.

I don't check to see if foods are high fibre or not, because I already know which foods are and aren't (and don't expect a ready-meal to provide me with much fibre).

I check the calories in some foods so that I'm aware of what I'm consuming (particularly desserts). They don't always have to be low-cal.

We buy multigrain bread... I'm not sure where wheat bread is on the GI scale but we have to buy everything low GI

My partner and I differ on so many things, especially when it come to grocery shopping. Me=skim milk, whole wheat bread, oatmeal. Him=2% milk, white bread, sugary cereals.

Well, I like to buy whole milk, but we pretty much always get 2% which I don't mind.
8th-Jan-2012 07:56 pm (UTC) - bread
We prefer rye to white or wheat. corn bread and sour dough are also good. white is too bland and wheat too sweet for me.

Your bread selection sucks.
My faves is rye bread or full seed sunflower bread, or potato -rye bread. <3 wheat bread (and white bread is wheat bread as well) is way down on my list. ) I also like rye- linseed bread :)

I did that on purpose because there were waaay too many different breads for me to list.
10th-Jan-2012 10:44 am (UTC)
aw, but you put a hell lot for the first section :(
10th-Jan-2012 04:41 pm (UTC)
Yeah, that was why I didn't want to do bread XD

I wanted to see what people would pick if faced with one or the other...TBH I totally forgot rye bread existed because I don't like it and never buy it. Oops >_>
