Aren’t we asked to fit at least 5 portions of fruit & vegetables into our diets, every single day? The truth is, it can be quite a battle on occasion in the Rex Baker’s family. But never fear, there’s a new way to enhance sandwiches without anything visibly “green” that the kids might resist.
Towards your family’s 5-a-day intake in 1 savoury bite
It’s actually thrilling when you’ve successfully sneaked extra health into you & your family’s diet, without them knowing & with them actually loving what they are eating! All Rex sweet products carry at least a little fruit or extra fibre and of course we hand-make everything in Rex Artisan Bakery with the best ingredients we can source, organic where possible and nothing else added, so plenty gained.
But this week we are recommending one of our breads, Oat & Apple Sourdough for your families’ sandwiches & lunches. Sourdoughs are very special loaves – they take days to make & have many digestive health benefits especially compared to industrial-made loaves.
Oat & Apple is one of our tastiest breads (according to the Rex Baker’s children) with an extremely light & long lasting moist bread-crumb thanks to the inclusion of up to 1/2 a grated Cox’s Orange Pippin* apple (that’s all the clean skin & flesh) into each organic white loaf. Topped with extra oats, what we think is a beautiful rustic-looking crust 🙂 does bring some extra goodness with it too.
Whilst an apple a day famously keeps the doctor away, the best thing about Oat & Apple Sourdough is that it just seems like a delicious white loaf that doesn’t taste at all apple-y or indeed sour!! Think of the inclusion of apple as a natural preservative that maintains great loaf moisture and injects extra tangy-fruit health benefits into every bite.
What’s special about Cox’s Orange Pippin in your sandwich?
- Did you know that these apples were originally developed in Bucks, not Kent? So are a local icon!
- Great source of vitamins (especially vitamin C), minerals and antioxidants
- Good source of extra dietary fibre especially pectin
- Thought to positively stimulate bacteria in your digestive tract
- It’s believed that an apple as part of your lunch fills you up faster, so that you are less tempted to overeat later.
Here’s what a couple of friends of Rex Bakery have to say:
“My boys enjoyed the new apple & oat sourdough loaf today”
“This is sooooooooooo delicious!!!”
If you too would like to inject some extra 5-a-day health into your diet, why not add Oat & Apple Sourdough to your order this week?
* We choose the apple that’s in-season. This was Cox’s Orange Pippin in February.
