I have completely cut bread from my diet. After I had my surgery, bread made me physical sick and I have got to the point I don't miss it anymore. If I want a sandwich I use a wrap and I find it satisfies my need just fine.
I really like the Sara Lee whole wheat white bread. It's the only sandwich bread my bf will eat. I love all breads...especially artisan loaves. A good crusty sourdough, roasted garlic bread, Italian loaf... oh I could go on and on.
Since my personal trainer has kind of banned good bread from my diet...not completely, but significantly reduced, I haven't even bought any tasty bread...but when I do, I usually keep it in the freezer and take out what I need as I need it and usually I toast it.
I prefer WW bread but my husband only likes white. And since he eats more bread than me I usually just buy regular old white bread.
Our problem is that a whole loaf is too big for us and we end up throwing 1/2 of it away. We wish they sold bread by the 1/2 loaves. Does anyone have any suggests on how to keep bread longer?

I think whole wheat breads tend to be a little higher in calories, ADLINS, although they have so much more nutritional value that it's worth it. It's a bit easier to find a white bread that has 50 cal or less per slice, but then you may be losing out on the nutrition.
I also like the European crusty breads (french, ciabatta, that sort of thing), but I also like hearty whole wheat breads. Truth is, I rarely buy bread - with just one of me in the house, it goes bad before I can finish a loaf. I tend to buy whole wheat tortillas and make wraps. But I do keep a little bread in the freezer; right now I have about half an Ezekiel loaf and a couple of bakery whole wheat rolls in there.

I use the sara lee 45 cal a slice and the WW 45 cal a slice. Both high in fiber and 1 point per slice.
Being on WW points low cal really matters and keeping them low is keeping fiber high.

I like pretty much any bread that can have the word "bread" in the name. lol Not too practical. I look forward to reading that article. My favorites are the very dense, tough crusted or hard crusted European breads. It doesn't take long to get 100 calories.
Thanks for the "heads up"!

I read this article on choosing the right bread today on SP and found the information useful. I've become incredibly picky about bread recently and have all but given it up. I have tried the Nature's Own brand, but was disappointed that no 100% Whole White Wheat made their list (unless I overlooked it) but did like that they included information on it and what to look for.

They list as criteria no more than 100 calories per slice which I think is high. That means a sandwich would automatically start at 200 calories.
What breads do you like and why?
