You have to have a mathematical degree to calculate the calories in a slice from the nutritional panel of the mix but it is so much better nutritionally and in taste. For me, it is like what I remember of a wheat bread. The quality is there. It doesn't even need to be toasted! I made hamburger buns and I just had the most fabulous hamburger for lunch. It looked like a real hamburger. I took a photo I was so impressed. I think I'll post it on my Spark page. I've been spending time loading photos instead of what I should be doing(lol).
It's nice to hear of someone else who has been living this way for so long.
I never bought CeliMix because it seemed to be only cornstarch. Then last year, I came across the 1kg bags of the Flaxseed Bread Mix discounted 80%. I bought it and started using it for variety tea breads. I developed recipes for Lemon Poppyseed Bread, Orange Cranberry Bread, Onion Herb Bread, etc. What a treat!
And Yes, I agree, a wonderful selection, lots of recipes now but all high in calories which is why I was so pleased to find SparkPeople.
I've got a core of really good recipes so I am buying fewer ready made bakery products. I can control the ingredients, they taste better and I know what I am eating. My downfall is snacking.
Someone suggested using waffles for sandwiches. I tried it and it works pretty good. A single waffle (110 calories) with an egg on top makes a great breakfast. I have more variety now because my system has healed, however, now I notice more which foods are not good for me.
