Some people assume that since whole bread is healthier because it is higher in fiber, it should be lower in calories and hence tend to eat more of it. However, the truth is both types of bread have similar calories. Always choose bread which lists “whole grain flour” or “whole meal flour’ as the first ingredient and ‘bran’ as the second ingredient.
Olive oil is one of the healthiest oils available to us. Olive oil is rich in monounsaturated fatty acids which is very important for heart health. All oils contribute similar calories which is around 126 calories per tablespoon, including olive oil.
