Skip The Food Delivery! This Cranberry Loaf Makes For Quick Meals When You're Busy With WFH

This article originally appeared on View the original article here.

Your body will thank you when you add it to your daily diet!

No matter how many recipes we learned during the quarantine, there are days when you just can’t be bothered to prep your own food. We get it, Cosmo girls! When it’s stressful enough to have to juggle work, chores, and other responsibilities on a regular day, it could be extra challenging to muster the energy or make time to cook your meals.

This is why it pays to have a bag of bread next to your laptop as you work from home, especially during extra-long Zoom sessions (cameras off, of course!). A good loaf makes great WFH food—you can just open a bag and munch along when you’re feeling too tamad or you can turn it into something incredible when you’re in a particularly creative mood. The pandemic may have made delivery services a palatable option, but can you beat food that’s already there in your pantry, available, affordable, and healthy?

When you want to go beyond your usual sliced bread, Gardenia’s High Fiber Wheat Cranberry Loaf takes the satisfaction up a notch! Boasting that nutritious formula for which Gardenia is known, this special loaf is speckled with dried cranberries, adding a chewy, tangy burst to every soft bite! More than the flavor though, the combination of premium whole wheat flour and dried cranberry bits helps provide some of the nutrients your body needs.

Here are just some of this super bread’s many benefits:

It’s high in fiber.

Fiber presents many advantages to your wellness. It’s been proven to help lower cholesterol and aid in achieving a healthy weight. Feeling good on the inside definitely helps you feel good on the outside, too.

It’s a vitamin boost.

This cranberry loaf is full of good stuff! It has vitamin A, which is good for your eyes and helps boost the immune system. And ICYDK, cranberries are also rich in vitamins and antioxidants that assist in promoting overall health.

It’s reinforced with calcium and iron.

Calcium needs no introduction. It helps strengthen bones and teeth and is vital in bodily functions, such as blood circulation, muscle movement, and hormone regulation.

Meanwhile, iron is essential in the normal formation of red blood cells. It also plays an important role in preserving energy and focus.

It’s incredibly tasty.

This isn’t your run-of-the-mill loaf of bread! Each bite is a smorgasbord of soft chewy textures, sweet and tangy notes, and pure, pure deliciousness.

It’s super versatile!

You can enjoy it on its own, but you can easily elevate the experience if you’re craving a special treat. Enjoy the classic combination of chicken and cranberry when you make a sandwich using this bread and last night’s leftover roast chicken. Even better: Slide in a slice of brie in between for a rich flavor overload. Heck, simply toasting it can heighten the contrast in textures!

After a long day, you deserve a delicious and healthy snack that's #CranberryGood and #CranberryHealthy! On your next grocery run, don't forget to grab Gardenia High Fiber Wheat Cranberry Loaf! Shop it for only SRP P73.50 in all leading groceries and supermarkets nationwide. Follow Gardenia on Instagram and Facebook for more delicious bread updates.
