Keep Healthy in the Winter With Nutritious Family-Friendly Foods

Now more than ever, it’s important to keep our immune system as healthy as possible—and eating nutrient-rich foods can help.

At the start of the pandemic, we took pleasure in making our own sourdough bread, knowing it would be a healthy choice for our family, and we could enjoy the fruits of our labour all together. Two years later, we still appreciate the health element of a homemade loaf, but we just don’t have the time (or let’s be real, the desire) to make one from scratch. And that’s okay—there are natural, nutritious and non-GMO breads available at our local grocery stores.

Stonemill Bakehouse has a selection of naturally fermented, wholesome bread you can trust. The loaves are packed with health-boosting ingredients and free of artificial flavours and preservatives, so you can feel good about enjoying them with your family.

Many of Stonemill’s breads are baked with naturally-occurring zinc, which is an essential nutrient. Especially during the frosty months of the year, it’s important to keep our health in tip-top shape. Making sure we get our nutrients, like zinc, which helps support our immune system, can help us fight off bacteria and viruses.

Some Stonemill breads are also made with naturally sprouted grains, which are more nutrient-packed (think folate, iron, vitamin C, and magnesium, to name a few) than regular grains. They’re also easy to digest, making Stonemill’s loaves a feel-good option for a family member with a sensitive tummy.

Unlike other bread options at the grocery store, Stonemill’s is naturally fermented, meaning the bread flavours develop naturally over time—and its irresistible taste shows. What’s more, their breads are made using a 100-year-old baking tradition featuring an authentic European sourdough starter that comes straight from Germany to Stonemill’s bakeries. (This is their secret for getting that delicious spongy texture!)

With eight bread options to choose from, you may not know which one to try first. Go for registered dietician Abbey Sharp’s family-favourite, Chia and Supergrains. It’s high in fibre and protein, and it’s a good source of zinc and omega 3s, making it a total superbread. It’s also vegan, with no added fat. Enjoy it with almond butter for a filling, healthy snack, or dunk it into a bowl of hearty veggie soup for a vitamin-packed dinner.
