Bread Talk

This week, Dr. Tanya’s 5 Things is all about bread. I had a hard time picking just five, though. What can I say, I’m still a foodie, pandemic or not.

This feels like cheating, but I love me some flatbread. Tortilla, naan, roti, paratha, focaccia, even some frybread. Yum…

Again, feels like cheating but I want to mention some of them for posterity lol. From the humble pan de sal, asado roll, siopao, hopia to ensaymada, egg pies, buco pies (ok, the latter three are more pastries).

Dang, that went over 5, not even including bagel. These days, or for almost a year now, I’ve been trying to pick the healthier options like whole wheat, multi-grain bread more often than not and indulge on some of my faves only once in a while.
