Yup. Waffles. I use 2 Kashi waffles as my bread.

You can make a kind of bread from some oat bran, natural yoghurt and egg... It toasts well, it's not too carby and it has the bread texture!

I use real bread (ya know, the good 100+ cals a slice kind), but if I'm watching my carbs that day/trying to save a bit of cals, I'll just do an openfaced sammich.


But seriously, life is too short for crappy bread. I used to eat that 45 calorie stuff from Sara Lee. I thought it tasted good, but then I switched back to the good stuff, and realized how horrible it was.


Though, the flat out wraps are decent. I'll concede to that.


I'm a sucker for good bread... I am also guilty of the 45 calorie & delightful Sara Lee, but when compared to real bread, it's paper thin. My boyfriend doesn't mind it because he doesn't like very thick bread anyway and usually ends up removing part of his hamburger/sandwich bun or pizza crust. Not because of carbs, just out of habit I think. And then whatever part he's removed, I usually snatch from his plate and eat myself. devil Good crust should never go to waste.

This makes me sad cry


Is it not possible to fit some bread into your daily calories and macros?

I love the Flat Out's and Sara Lee 45 calorie bread

Why replace it? Surely you have room in your cals and macros for a few slices of bread per day?

Ryvita crispbreads, low calorie, but with lots of different flavours. Includes pumpkin seed, oats, red onion even a sweet one with cranberries. Top them with whatever you like, they have a reasonable protein count especially the pumpkin seed ones.

I'm sorry, but good bread is just not replaceable. Then again, if you haven't been to Europe, you haven't tasted good bread to begin with.

Haha sorry, this is so not helpful..
:p

I also use Joseph's - Pita Bread- Flax, Oat Bran, & Whole Wheat 60 cals

Most definitely. You don't need to cut it out entirely. Some days, though, you may want lower carb options. Macros and all.... If bread really did make you fat, I'd give up and be fat, because heart bread.

If you're so inclined, you can bake some bread and slice it really thinly - denser, German-style breads are great for this. Of course, you need to like the idea of making bread, and you need a good knife to slice it thinly! Oh, and I guess you should like the bread you make. If you're into whole-grain breads, I'd suggest the Laurel's Kitchen Bread Book. Every recipe I've tried has turned out wonderfully; sometimes homemade whole-wheat bread is really heavy, but these recipes (the ones that are supposed to be, anyway) make soft, light, delicious bread. It's my favorite collection of bread recipes!

Flat Out wraps are good, but I usually buy light wheat bread. Both my grocery store brand and Country Kitchen brand have 35 calories per slice.

I haven't tried the almond variety but must say the coconut flour one was pretty bad. The blend of egg whites and coconut didn't go well taste-wise.

Haha same. This is what I meant! There is no need to cut out bread if you like it, just tweak it into your day :)

I use corn tortillas to make quesadillas a lot. I also buy some gluten-free wraps called "sandwich petals." You can also use lettuce to wrap stuff instead of the bread.

I loooove sammiches, so I loooove my Weight Watchers bread and Body Wise bread. Skinny slices, about 35-40 cals. per slice. Whole wheat, white, or 7 grain. Yum. I also like wraps, so lo-cal, low-fat tortillas work for me.

Healthy Life makes a great high fiber bread, at only 35 calories per slice. Very tasty and sandwich-worthy. Or, you can try the "sandwich thins" made by Arnold, Nature's Own, Thomas, etc. The multi-grain versions are awesome, and you can also use them as hamburger buns.

Plantain flour + Sweet potato flour are excellent alternatives to make your own bread with. You may also try coconut flour, if the flavour is agreeable. Mind you, I've made bread using the raw ingredients and it worked out really well for the bread and the chocolate cake. Oh, you have to steam them or bake them first, at least that is how I made mine.
