I am very lucky. My break area has a fridge, microwave and a toaster. I bring the meat in a separate container. Reheat it in the microwave if needed and toast the bread for just a few seconds in the toaster. Something about warming it makes it have more moisture. I assemble my sandwich at work. I gave up Miracle Whip (which I love) and went to mustard which is calorie free.

I have tried the Rice Pecan bread, and it's pretty good, but to me it was still too crumbly for taking a sandwich to work. Good for toast or grilled cheese, though. The GF bread from Whole Foods comes to the store fresh, not frozen so my first loaf is always really good. Once the loaves are frozen, they're OK but never quite the same.
Anyway, breads are some of my worst diet habits. I could eawily eat a basket of biscuits long before I would devour a carton of ice cream, so I'm trying not to buy them at all.

Hi Jenduke,

I get my bread in the HEB frozen section. It is "Food for Life" Rice Pecan Bread and is Wheat & Gluten Free. I don't know how many calories your current bread has, but here is how Rice Pecan stacks up against my husband's white bread per slice.

His - Mine
80 - 130 Calories
.5g - 3g Fat
150mg - 5mg Sodium
0 - 115mg Potassium
16g - 24g Carbohydrate
1g - 2g Fiber
2g - 3g Sugar
2g - 2g Protein
0 - 4% Vit. C
4% - 4% Iron

Anyway, since I only eat one slice of bread per sandwich now days, I'm getting fewer calories than he does with his 2 slices of bread per sandwich. Rice Pecan isn't as crumbly as some of the GF breads and it has a good nutty flavor.

Hope your HEB carries it too.

The Hospital for Sick Kids in Toronto also ships, and they have a lot of products. Also try Glutino.ca as that is the bread I eat. Not sure where they are located, but quite possibly in the US and then you can have that stuff shipped. Can you call the store you go to say a week a head of when you need products and let them know when you will be in and what you want? Maybe you can strike up a deal with them and tell them you will advertise for them and their products when you come across someone who also is on the diet. I'm lucky as I have a store close by which carries a lot of products as two of their cashiers are also on the gluten free diet. (they both also have the same first name as me; now how weird is that???)

I live in Houston, Texas. I have ordered foods from Canada through www.kinnikinnick.com. They really were good, but it's expensive.
Whole Foods market has started a GF bakery in Austin, Texas so I can buy fairly fresh GF baked at their stores here in Houston. Problem 1 is there are only 4 or so stores in Houston and none are close to me.
Problem 2 is they don't always have the bread or other products in! I tend to buy three loaves and 4-6 pizza crusts at a time to take home and freeze.
The blueberry muffins are AWESOME. Need to say, ther contain MANY calories. (Oh, but they're soooo good on a cold morning!)

Hi Jenduke. I am also having trouble with breads now that I find the one I've been eating for years is high in calories! Needless to say, weight gain! I found a new bread on the weekend I will try this week. I actually don't know the calories, fats etc, but it has some nuts in it, so I'm hoping it is healthy, has some fiber it in, and has less calories than my current one. Where are you located? I am in Ontario and have eaten Canadian made products these past years. I eat a lot of veggies, always have, and am trying to really push the fruits. But some of those are bad also due to the high sugar content. I'll keep you posted on what this new bread contains. Let me know where you are located.

What whole grains do you eat?

I've noticed that many gourmet GF items taste fantastic, but their calorie and fat content are just scary! I am not overly fond of brown rice unless it's in something like pasta. I don't eat oats. When I looked for GF granola/energy bars, most of them contain peanuts/dates/coconuts to which I'm allergic. Right now I get my pasta and the Whole Foods GF bread in SPARINGLY - the calores are just too high. Any suggestions?
