Bread and spreads for a healthy holiday

COLUMBIA, SC (WIS) -

For Christmas, if you’d like a bread to serve at dinner that you can turn around and serve your family and friends for breakfast, nutrition consultant Lere’ Robinson has two breads she likes to feature.

The Irmo-based nutritionist finds these breads and dips are a hit with even picky eaters.

The breads are actually healthy AND delicious. If you're looking for a vegan bread, these are two to try in your kitchen.

This whole-grain, gluten-free, no-knead bread has psyllium seed husks which are beneficial to those who have digestive problems: 

And this whole grain bread can be served for both a dinner and then heated for breakfast with a jam.

To keep the breads healthy, Lere’ likes to make two different spreads that have nutritional value. These spreads (or dips) go well with either bread. This roasted avocado dip is a creative way to sneak in a vegetable. And this avocado dip is full of heart-healthy monounsaturated fatty acids.

Lere’ encourages WIS viewers and her clients to know they can have “treats” and delicious foods that are festive for the Christmas and New Year’s holidays that are not full of unhealthy ingredients.

Lere’ also reminds you to keep a bowl of fruit available amongst the Christmas goodies. She uses a red-beaded decorative bowl to put brightly-colored green Granny Smith apples in as both a deterrent to the sweets and as part of the holiday décor.
