If you love fresh baguettes, challah, Parker House rolls, and focaccia, settling for a loaf of sliced bread from the supermarket can be disappointing. Besides, a lot of packaged bread is full of refined sugar and other unhealthy ingredients. And when you've been loafing around the bread aisle for an hour trying to figure out which packaged bread looks the yummiest and healthiest, things can get a little bleak. Next time you're struggling through this process, just go straight for Dave's Killer Bread.

Registered dietician nutritionist Amy Shapiro says it's the best store-bought option because each slice is packed with minimally processed whole grains and seeds. As she explains in Well+Good, whole grains will deliver important nutrients like "B vitamins, minerals (iron, zinc, copper, magnesium), antioxidants, protein, and fiber, which all are important for overall health—as well as digestion and even weight maintenance. … They have also been shown to help lower the risk of heart disease, some forms of cancer, diabetes, and obesity."

Even though it's popular among the healthy-living crowd, Dave's Killer Bread offers more than just health benefits. With six different flavor options, your avocado toast is about to taste even better. This brand also has a super-interesting backstory. So if you're as fascinated by entrepreneurs as we are, check out this illustrated narrative about Dave's Killer Bread and the baker who founded it in Portland, Oregon. 

Try the pantry staple now, or add it to your cart next time you're at the supermarket.
