Tea with AK71: A loaf of bread.

Thursday, June 2, 2011

I enjoy convenience and I have told quite a few people that I do not like to spend too much time preparing food or eating. Food to me is a necessity. That, very much, is it.

However, I do enjoy spending hours in a nice restaurant with good company. It is the company that makes it worthwhile for me in such instances.

Some of my earlier blog posts on the types of low cost food I enjoy attracted myriad comments, some encouraging, some discouraging and quite a few incredulous! Well, here is another.

I have been trying to avoid wheat because it is bad for my blood type, apparently. Unfortunately, I like bread very much and I particularly like those with raisins!

Raisins are good for my blood type and maybe, they would cancel out the negative effects of wheat. Oh, this loaf has rolled oats as well and oats are good for my blood type too. Two against one! This loaf of bread has my stamp of approval!

Blood type diet aside, this is a loaf of bread that is loaded with goodness. Periodically, I would buy a loaf and it would usually last me 2 to 3 days. 2 slices and I am full. There are about 10 slices or so per loaf. So, that makes 5 meals for me.

Cost? This loaf of bread usually retails at S$2.95 each. It was going for S$2.50 each at NTUC Fairprice. I don't know if  the special offer is still on though.

Convenient, low cost and something I enjoy. This formula never fails. :)

I am now also bitten by the bread culture - I simply love the french baguette and croissant!

But the kind of bread I love the most is the brandless kopitiam kind.

Lucky I have a cake shop in Queenstown that still sells them. I call these kind of bread "curry loti".

They go the best with mom's home-cooked curry!

I like the atas baguette and croissant too.

Believe it or not, I like Delifrance baguette with home cooked curry. ;)

Hi SnOOpy168,

My dad loves this as well. I remember going to Satay Club with my family as a boy and my dad would order this without fail. Unfortunately, he had to stop taking it a few years ago due to health issues.

Hi AK71,

NTUC Soft Wholemeal Bread is nice and healthy too. Cost S$1.65...try them.
