  • Low-carb bread

    I work in a store next to a local bakery store. Today I just had to laugh when I saw one of their discounts: "Low-carb bread".
    Is this their attempt to get the low-carbers back to their stores?
    LOL, think again, low carb or not, low-nutritional value birdseed all the same

    Low carb baked goods were very popular in the heyday of Atkins. Or one of the many heydays of Atkins I should say.

      My diabetic mother still buys gross low-carb bread sliced so thin that it turns into a cracker when toasted. At that point, I would've given up...then again, I did anyway.

      I just can't seem to get through to her, what with her CW doctors brainwashing her with crappy CW health advice. Maybe in a year. At this rate I'll have lost all the weight and packed on the muscle. Without her silly bread.

        After a few weeks without bread, I realized how nasty it really is. Bread is more about convenience than nutrition or flavor...all hail the almighty sandwich. Convenience leads to familiarity leads necessity.

          Okay, I confess. Maybe once a month I want an old-fashioned Rueben which I make with a vlc bread--no taste, it's true-- called Carb Krunchers multigrain, has 2 carbs per slice, which is griiled in butter, piled with local deli-made pastrami, swiss cheese, sauerkraut, my homemade 1000 Island dressing. And, hang me for this, I enjoy every crispy, drippy, greasy mouthful. The bread freezes for ages since it is mostly fiber. This is my in 20%, so I do limit to no more than once a month.

            There are still a lot of people that want to eat the same way, with just less carbs. This opens the market for a ton of weird stuff.

              Agreed! During my pre-primal low carb days I tried lots of them, most are awful, and rely heavily on soy, and way too much of artificial sweeteners. I realized I had to give up on the faux foods, at least 95% of them.

                Comments about carby foods being tasteless or disgusting crap always bewilder me. What kind of bread are you eating? Wonder Bread? Good bread is delicious. At least a billion people agree with me.

                    I loved bread; made much of my own for years, and could probably take down half a loaf of really good cranberry-pecan whole grain bread from Whole Foods in hurry. Bread was the hardest for me, not most other stuff. But it doesn't love me back, so we are through.

                      I used to manage a country buffet and made the yeast rolls in the morning. Damn!

                        That's cruel and unusal punishment if you can't eat it--and most can't.

                              If I am going to ever eat bread again, it wouldn't be some weird low carb cardboard.
                              My absolute fave is a good sourdough. We would fill a bowl with a quality olive oil and add sea salt and cracked pepper. Tear up chunks of sourdough and saturate them in the oil unt they were sopping wet. It's the only way to eat bread as far as I'm concerned.
                              I miss oily sourdough.
