I honestly don't miss it, I found bread at Aldi that is rye, pumpernickle, and sunflower seed bread. REAL bread, no whacky ingredients, rye kernal, rye flour, salt, yeast, water, oat fiber. I was so happy when I found these! For breakfast sandwiches I toast ( on toasters very low setting) a brown rice cake, fry up an egg in coconut oil, put on some cheese (cut from the block) or avocado. When the rice cake pops up I spread coconut oil on it ( It softens the crunch a bit to be more of a soft crunch consistency like toast) break whats left of the yolk onto the cake, and create my open faced sandwich! Delicious! Then if I am craving a sandwich I use breast meat of chicken, or tuna, what have you and make it on the rye or pumpernickle bread. My pasta I do brown rice or yam noodle, and if I really want to do a wrap I do a brown rice wrap which needs to be heated just a tad in the microwave before using. I bake all my goodies with coconut and almond flour ( I prefer the taste over wheat) so really, the only time I miss it is when I am out to eat at an italian place or something. Not that gluten free is clean, but Olive garden now subs gluten free pasta for the wheat if you ask with no charge. It is most likely corn pasta, but hey if your having a cheat meal and worked out really hard all week, why not indulge a little right? I do from time to time. So far I lost 33 pounds, losing a bit slower now so I needed support. :)
I believe in being the candle in someone's darkness. In lifting up the fallen, healing the broken, and being the strength in someones weakness.

I LOVE Soba noodles. I have tried brown rice pasta and didn't care for it. Glad you liked it. I'm sure it's healthy. I have tried ezekial pasta; it was not bad. And Kamut pasta. I can't find that Barilla Plus pasta anywhere...
On the weekend I tried 2 new pastas - PC Organic brown rice spaghetti (ingredients organic brown rice and water lol) and Buckwheat soba noodles which turned out to be organic as well. I liked them both. They were fairly reasonable in price too the soba was $1.25 for a package that made a good 6 cups worth. Was awesome with my stir fry.

The best day of your life is the one on which you decide your life is your own. No apologies or excuses. No one to lean on, rely on, or blame. The gift is yours - it is an amazing journey - and you alone are responsible for the quality of it. This is the day your life really begins. ~Bob Moawad
