When I switched from white bread to whole grain bread I started experiencing upset stomachs. But when I tried sprouted whole grain bread instead, my stomach did not object. And another benefit is a great nutty flavor and hearty texture. I don't eat any other kind of bread now.
Try sprouted whole grain bread with a nut spread and banana slices for a filling and delicious treat!

If you are looking to lower your carbohydrate intake, try Sprouted wheat bread by The Sprouted Bakehouse (Cybros) company. Goggle "Cybros" to get more information. Each slice has 4 grams of net carbs, 5 grams of protein, 3 grams of fiber and is only 65 calories. I have reduced my carbohydrate intake dramatically by eating 1-2 slices of this bread whenever I need a slice of bread for a sandwich, toast, etc. You can find Sprouted Wheat Bread at Whole Foods Market. Enjoy!
