For most people around the world, every day starts with a healthy breakfast featuring bread. Toast it, butter it up or have it with jam or marmalade but have it we must! After all, bread energizes us by providing the body with plenty of carbohydrates for the day. Yet, nowadays, everybody has become more conscious about what goes into the making of our bread, and most people prefer multigrain bread for its added benefits. If you are one of these people, then here’s everything you need to know about using Glen’s Automatic Bread Maker to make the best multigrain bread at home. 

In case you didn’t know, the United Nations has declared 2023 to be the International Year of Millets because millets are nutrient-dense ingredients that can grow even in arid lands with minimal effort. Millets are also known to be grown through agricultural practices that benefit the environment as well as small-scale farmers. Most Indians are already familiar with these reasons behind promoting the consumption of millets, and in fact, Ayurveda, the ancient Indian tradition of healing, also supports this. 

But while most people who are health conscious today do include millets in their salads and meals, many are unaware of the fact that commonly found millets can easily be used to make delicious and nutrient-dense multigrain bread at home.
