Have you noticed a change in the way that bread is sliced? Do you remember when each slice of bread was much thinner than it is now, netting more slices per loaf?
Thicker slices may be good for the bakery since you go through a loaf of bread faster. However, if you are watching what you eat, you are often getting double the bread serving you once did.
- asking the baker to slice the bread according to your specifications
- dusting off your bread maker and make your own
- serving only one piece of toast with your morning egg, if the bread you buy is thickly sliced.
