A Happy Farewell to Wonder Bread
Posted by Chef Paul under: Information .
WONDER BREAD IS DEAD! THANK GOD!!!
Gone are the days of Wonder Bread in
The other day I heard the Wonder Bread plants were closing in
I am a little biased since I teach 4th graders the benefits of the Farmers Market and the perils of high fructose corn syrup and sodas that are worse for you than colored sugar water. Sure I did it, I ate it, my mother didnâ€™t know better, we had convenience foods and ate many a frozen dinner, along with Tang and Space Food Sticks.
Only in the last 10 years have we come to realize the importance of reading food labels and realizing actually what we were putting our bodies for sustenance. Â Farmers markets have become all the rage and eating local is important, damn important. Local food shed is a concept of eating foods produced within 200 miles of the place you live. Low impact, whole grain, in season foods of choiceâ€¦those are damn good for you and the environment.
We canâ€™t do it everyday, all the time, but we can all make the effortâ€¦it is our choice. I love to buy my melons, multi-colored carrots, and heirloom potatoes from
Wonder Bread had left the building, the city, and hopefully the state. They can take Hostess and Twinkies, and Coconut covered Pink puffs of Marshmello fluff with them because now we know our bodies and our kids need more substantial things for good health. Donâ€™t get me wrongâ€¦we can have an occasional ice cream, convenience food, or candy barâ€¦but letâ€™s make it more infrequent than the days of my childhood.
