Rye

Rye is a whole grain fiber. It’s stronger distinctive flavor make it not as versatile as it’s wheat based cousins. Peanut butter on rye, or rye french toast just doesn’t work 🙁

Because it is difficult to separate the germ and bran from the endosperm of rye, rye flour usually contains more nutrients than refined wheat flour.  

Rye is a great source of calcium, magnesium, phosphiorus, potassium, selenium, folate, folic acid, and of course, fiber.

If you can’t stomach whole wheat, rye is a great choice. Personally, I love a good rye bread!
