So I want to cut out all gluten products but I was raised on the idea that wheat bread was healthy?

It’s kind of embarrassing to say but I have no idea why wheat bread is even healthy? I mean I was told it was healthy so I believed it. I think I remember it had a higher fiber count? Maybe a higher protein count as well?

Anyways I want to become gluten-free as I have read many bad things about the new engineered gluten meant for mass production in 2014.

What could I substitute to achieve health benefits, if any, that I used to get from wheat bread? Is an array of fruits and veggies sufficient? I don’t even know the benefits of wheat bread x:
