healthy life 100% whole wheat
it's inexpensive and 35 calories a slice

Nice to know, I'll look for it.

Sometimes I use big lettuce leaves if I'm having a burger or something. Works great and tastes fantastic and saves over 100 calories. :)

Large lettuce leaf works, or my favorite, use a large portabella mushroom cap. Pull out the stem, you can chop or cut into the "meat" of the mushroom, pile or layer your stuff in there & maybe toast for a few in an oven, and voile! Healthy, delicious, low cal, low carb & great fiber!!

GF breads can be a lower cal option but not necessarily carb - there is Ener'G Light Brown Bread, 50 cals a slice, but not sure if the sodium & other stuff is worth it (I am GF due to allergy)

La tortilla Factory makes a great large wheat tortilla with only 80 calories and it makes great wraps...

Joseph's brand makes some good replacements. I use the lavash bread or the low carb pitas- they have a full line of stuff to choose from. I get them online at, but I've heard of some WalMarts and other stores having the brand. Depends where you live, I suppose.

I use Joseph's lavash bread for all sorts of things, including homemade low fat veggie pizza. Lavash chips are wonderful too with a homemade salsa. Easy too. I will send recipes for anyone who wants them.

I make my own Chipattis using gram flour. Make up a batch and just put them in a container, there are lots of recipes on the web : )

There is also a recipe called "cloud bread", they are made of egg whites and are extremely low in calories. Less than 15 a piece. They are more like hamburger buns when you make them

I replaced my diet of wholemeal bread and cheese for lunch with a 'meal soup' - ie lentil or bean soup. It really has worked for me. It is often between 100 and 150 calories and as it has beans or lentils in it fills me up enough not to crave bread. Initially I would have it with 2 crackers, but after a while I found I didn't need those.

My morning sandwich is replaced with Porridge. Perfect in these wintermonths and very filling.

Thanks for posting all this, I actually didn't know that I could replace bread for something else, I am soo adicted to the stuff that I don't think I could live a day without it. I think I will try some of these amazing options.

I just happen to find this site yesterday: with discount code 1776.
They make carb free, gluten free, and have some stores that carry their brand, I am planning to try some soon.

Replace each slice of bread with a chicken breast laugh

What do you usually eat on a sandwich? Could you just increase the veggie content, and turn it into a salad?

I thought the exact same thing...

I know it doesnt sound all that great but you could use iceberg lettuce leave to wrap things like chicken or tuna :)

not as filling but tastes good and is served quite often at Chinese restaurants!

I make my own Flour from Mesquite Beans / pods. Its great for my Low Carb (Prediabetic) diet and tastes great. I mix it with Almond Flour and bake it into Bread just like regular White Flour but its much much better for you.

My parents use a product called "Flat Out" and make wraps, etc. My dad is diabetic so he has to watch his carbs.

These are awesome, they have different ones as well. My local Hy-Vee carries them, If your store doesnt you can ask them to get them in for you.
