At the same time, any doctor will tell us that spring is perhaps the most difficult time for the body. Firstly, winter cold is behind us, and secondly, there are almost no vitamins in our food. Fruits and vegetables that survived the winter in storage have lost most of their beneficial properties, and overseas products do not always bring the expected benefits to our health. Spring is a time of exacerbation of many chronic diseases. And if in our aspirations for transformation on the eve of the summer season we will torment the body with diets, it is not far from trouble.
That's why diet products should be chosen habitual, traditional, healthy and ... low-calorie! The ideal product for enriching the spring diet is brown bread. Many doubt the calorie content of black bread. Let's figure it out.
