Duck eggs make the difference. Especially fresh.

Marion,
that does look yummy. Many times it is so important to focus on what we can eat, not on what we should not have.
I'm going to probably have pancakes for breakfast. Since I found I am sensitive to dairy recently I make them with almond flour (grind almonds in a small coffee mill), eggs (we have duck eggs from our ducks) and some almond or coconut milk. As a topping I'll thaw some berries. If I need a touch of sweet I'll add a little Xylitol. For people who can eat dairy making this with full-fat milk or yogurt and topping with some butter or whipped cream is even better. emoticon
Many times our go-to breakfast is bacon and eggs. It does matter to get animal products from pasture-fed animals though, or the nutrional profile (omega 3-6 ratio, mineral content) is not very healthy any more.

You can talk to God all you want and that's great, but the changes happen when you start listening to him.

BE THE CHANGE YOU WANT TO SEE IN OTHERS.

Marion,
yes, unfortunately all the old info about how whole grain is healthy is still preached in lots of places, but it is outdated.
For recipes there are many possibilities. Here are a few links:

The author of the wheatbelly blog also has an e-mail sign-up for free recipes and there are many hidden in the blogs as well. He just published a companion book to the Wheatbelly book that you can look at here:

I will add that some recipes don't taste exactly like what people are used to from wheat but some actually taste better. Many people find that after about one week or less of wheat withdrawal or grain/high-carb withdrawal they feel much better and their carb cravings go away. That was definitely my experience. I can now eat one piece of dark chocolate with a tiny bit of sugar and be happy but I can also turn it down without cravings later.
But wheat I treat like cigarettes for a smoker, one serving and the cravings come back. emoticon

Actually, I am not at all suggesting that people should give up bread because of the calories in it but because of the toxic ingredients in it. In fact on a low-carb and very heart healthy diet I can maintain my weight on about 2000 calories without exercise and 2500 calories with exercise. Eating lots of healthy fats, including saturated fats from coconut oil, meat, dairy and eggs will allow you to eat more calories than when eating carbs because your body will not produce as much insulin and not put as many calories in storage.
There are no nutrients of any kind that your body ca only get from grains.
As far as whether giving up bread is likely or unlikely it all depends on the person. I grew up on a diet of whole grain breads and loved them and ate a lot of them all my life. But I found that after only about 2 weeks I never missed bread at all any more and for the grain products I still like, muffins, pizza crusts etc. there are easy substitutes based on coconut flour, nut meals and flaxmeal recipes.
I'm glad that your blood test had excellent results. For many people that is not possible when eating grains and I'm not just talking about people with gluten-sensitivity but also people with blood sugar issues.

Yes giving up bread altogether would be ideal but for most of us very unlikely. So we do the best that we can, make the best changes and choices that we can.

All breads contain calories and carbs. Eliminating any bread from your diet whether it be white, whole wheat, or grains reduces your calorie intake and your carb intakes which helps to burn fat and lose weight.

In November, I gave up white bread , white potatoes and white rice . 1200 -1500 calories per day, not exceeding 160 grams of carbs and added healthy fats every day. I lost 20 pounds in about 2 months and my blood test results were excellent .

I also ate sweet potatoes, brown rice and whole grain breads.

I gave up white bread a long time ago, with the exception of an occasional slice of pizza with the grandkids. I love bread and have discovered lots of flavors and textures. If you think you don't like whole wheat, try a different brand as they all taste different. Rather than giving up bread altogether, I learned to like whole grains. Good health to you all. emoticon

The choice is mine. I am in charge of me. Live healthy.

I'm all for giving up white bread, it is definitely a waste of calories. Just dont' think whole-wheat is any better. In fact it is probably worse. The glycemic index of whole wheat is no better than white bread, but in addition most of the toxic and addictive substances in wheat are in the germ part which is only in whole wheat. Other grains are not much better in the carb load and the insulin response they cause, even gluten-free foods just replace one kind of starch with another, use rice starch, tapioca starch and potato starch.
Instead make breads and pizza crusts with nut flours like almond. emoticon

For Everyone Who Has Been Wanting to Give Up White Bread join us here and together we emoticon

If you eat a bagel for breakfast, pizza for lunch, and dig into the bread basket at dinner.
The Potential calorie savings: Up to 1,000 calories emoticon

White bread's simple carbohydrates are easy to eat, lead to spike-and-crash energy, and contain slow-to-burn calories that end up as fat."

What will it be for you, that bagel on your way to work, that sandwich for lunch on a large hoagie roll or maybe that buttered bread at dinner time emoticon

Experts say that eliminating just one bad food from your daily diet will result in weight loss...lets's see if they are right emoticon
