September 16th is National Cinnamon-Raisin Bread Day
you're looking for something to do today then get ready to add some
flavor to your carbs because it's National Cinnamon-Raisin Bread Day!
Yeah, you know you want a slice! So let's get right into
celebrating National Cinnamon-Raisin Bread Day!
WHY IS THIS A
You can't deny that people love eating all different types of
bread. And cinnamon just has a special spot in many people's hearts
because of its aromatic flavor. But then you try to toss in raisins?
Natural sweetness, coupled with fiber and a whole new texture... yeah,
someone's going to enjoy that! It's a traditional flavor combination
that's loved by more than just grandmas and the love for this bread is
so strong that it just has to be celebrated! But even though
you'll end up with flavorful bread, you are also going to see some
health benefits from the leading ingredients. Cinnamon has been found
to help control blood sugar, kick fungus in the face and help curb
stomach ulcers. It's not just brown and snifftastic; it's healthy too!
if you look at your wrinkly, little raisins you may not think of how
healthy they are, but let me help you dive a little deeper into the
mysteries of these dried out gobs of sweetness. A raisin will give you
energy, help boost your digestion, prevent tooth decay, strengthen your
bones, protect your eyes and much more than I'm willing to list at this
moment. So as long as you don't add too much sugary and fatty
ingredients to your bread, you're looking at quite a healthy treat!
Now just open your mouth and insert that bread!
So, how can you celebrate today? Well, I'm willing to bet
that you could go to a local bakery and pick up a fresh loaf of
cinnamon-raisin bread right now if you wanted to. OK, for the sake of
winning that bet, I mean if a bakery is open at this hour. But if the
bakery doesn't have any then you can just head to the bread aisle in
your grocery store. It's a pretty common combination and I'm sure it
will liven up any toast or sandwiches you want to consume. But if
you'd much rather make it yourself then search online for a recipe!
Making bread like this really isn't that difficult and it's much more
satisfying when you know everything that went into it. Plus is doubles
as a momentary air freshener, so you can't lose! OK, so maybe you can
lose if you're a little slow to slice yourself off some of this bread
in a house full of hungry celebrators!
But what are some
creative ways you could consume bread like this? What if you breaded
some chicken, pork chops or something you're going to fry with some
cinnamon-raisin bread? How do you think that would turn out? How about
using some cinnamon-raisin bread crumbs to stuff a turkey with? Mhmm,
you can be that creative! Have a great day and slice gently!
