Make your own bread to control the carbs

By making my own whole wheat bread at home, I can control what goes in it and the size of the slices. This way, I can manage my carb intake better while still enjoying a "two slice" sandwich!

Bread Vegi Exchange...

I have replaced almost all traditional bread, crackers and chips for dipping with vegetables. This has been a HUGE benefit because i'm fitting in more vegetables, especially RAW organic vegetables into my daily diet. I don't mean "Grab your celery People" I mean PEPPERS!! and NOT Green. Red, yellow and orange ~ YUMMY!!!

Flatout WRAP with Flax! Great Balanced Bread thing -- Vegetarian's Dream

When I'm having problems balancing my Carbs/Fat/Protein I go to my fave new discovery, Flatout Flat Bread Wraps. 100 Calories for a good sized wrap that tastes sorta neutral so works well for a nut butter, tofu wrap, or any kind of sandwich and can also be used with some ricotta cheese and a nice strawberry topping (homemade from Chef Meg's recipi) to make a kind of crepe/blintz. Buy One Get One=Freeze Well!

Pita Alwatan

For weeks I have been looking for a type of whole wheat bread that has no added sugar, molasses, or HF corn syrup, with no success. Then I found these whole wheat pitas at Wegmans supermarket. They are large pitas, which can be cut or sliced in half. They are 190 calories and have no sweeteners or additives.

Ditch bready carbs.

They aren't great for you. Cookies are cookies even if they are organic or whole grain. So are cakes and brownies, no matter how natural the sugar is. Bread isn't a whole grain, either, and you can get your fiber from vegetables and fruits instead. It sounds preposterous, but it's helped me a lot!

Best Bread to eat for weightloss

I'm a carbaholic and have recently switched from doing Atkins to a low-cal, low fat diet, but we still need to watch the carbs.
TWO pieces of Betty Light Whole Wheat Bread has:
Calories Fat Carbs Protein Sodium
90 1g 16g 5g 220mg

PLUS if you are carb counting, there are 5grams of fiber, so a total of 11g net carbs.

Enjoy!

Kangaroo 100% Whole Wheat Pockets (Pita bread with a big pouch)

I would like to introduce you to the Kangaroo brand pocket bread! I've had both the multigrain (not 100% whole grain) and the 100% whole wheat. The company has a patented method to make pita bread that opens up to easily hold several ounces of whatever you like in your pita. I've put 3 ounces of chicken in and still have room for some veggies! Easily accommodates a scrambled egg or two with some veggies or meat.

Rudi's Gluten free bread

My normal bread is Udi's but I tried this bread a few days ago and it is a winner also. It will be my first choice because you get a larger slice of bread for the same calories.

Sweet treat with your coffee/tea

I crave something sweet on my break. For a while I was eating a 100-calorie bag of mini-cookies. But I found something better for me. I toast one slice (21 gr.) of Schwebels Smart Light whole wheat bread (35 calories) & top it with 1/2 serving (7 gr.) of Olivio Light (25 calories) & sprinkle it with cinnamon & Splenda (virtually no calories.) I save 40 calories over a tiny bag of cookies. As a bonus my snack contains whole grain, fiber & no sugar. Weigh your bread...(click title for more info)

The colored ties on bread

When buying your bread, look at the plastic tab, the color denotes when it was delivered to the store.
Monday - Blue
Tuesday - Green
Thursday - Red
Friday - White
Sat - Yellow
They do not deliver on Wednesdays or Sundays.
By checking the tab you will always get the freshest bread

eat less bread

bread turns straight to glucose, plus it has a lot of sugar in it. Ditto for anything made with white flour (w. wheat flour does too, but not quite as quickly). white flour comes from wheat too.

Make your sandwiches open face (leave off the top piece).
grill or stir fry will mean you eat less bread
skip the burgers when you're out at a sit down, or remove the bun and eat with a knife and fork.
at chinese places, go for steamed vegetables or the soups instead of the noodles or fried rice.

Cut out the Middle

Cut calories by digging out the hefty middle filling of those big bread servings like bagels, biscuits, croissants, etc..
You can also buy the thin versions of bread e.g. Thomas' Bagel Thins

Thanksgiving Bread Debate

This year for Thanksgiving, try eliminating bread from the menu altogether since stuffing already has bread in it. I did it last year and no one missed it since everything else was more exciting flavor-wise anyways!

Bread is a diet killer

My weight loss sped up considerably when I got rid of the bread in my diet. A lot of diets call for bread, toast, even whole grain stuff still didn't cut it for me. Instead I found rice bread which is very good and chow down on a lot of almonds. Bread is not really a 'natural food", not like fruits and veggies -- so why do we need it?

Cut your own bread

I purchase break at a local boulangerie. It is some of the fresheds "realest" bread I have had not made by a relative. They make it right on the premises. Since I buy it in loaves, I have to cut it myself. That way I can cut it as thin (or thick) as I want. A great way to control my bread portions.

Ezekiel 4:19 Sprouted Grain Bread

You can find it in the frozen bread section of most grocery stores (but unfortunately not WalMart). Not only is it much better for you than most breads made with processed flour, at 80 calories a slice it's less calories than most! Especially good as toast; several kinds available.

Breadmaking

Baking my own bread has become easy and cost effective. I started using the "Artisan Bread in 5 Minutes a Day" plan about 2 months ago and I love. I used to buy 2 loaves of bread a day for my family. Now, I bake it myself for a fraction of the cost.
