  • Bread?

    Is there any bread that I could eat, say, once I have achieved my weight loss goals and am in a maintenance phase? I have heard that sourdough is the best option, because it is fermented, and that converts many of the worst sugars and starches into lower glycemic load stuff, but this may be negligible. Can decent breads be made from alternative flours. like coconut or almond? Are there any grains, like amaranth, buckwheat, or others, which are far less domesticated and truer to their natural biology that might be healthier to eat? I ask, because my wife is totally onboard, except for toast. Man, she loves her morning toast. I figure, if you're gonna eat that stuff, the morning is the best time, since you have all day to burn through that sugar rush, being active and not letting it turn to fat (like when you have pizza and beer for dinner). This morning, she told me I put too much butter on her toast, and I told her she'd be better off eating a tablespoon of butter and leaving out the toast. She didn't like that at all. Is there a way I can promise her a slice of morning toast, someday in the future, or am I, well, toast?

    Thanks!

    Actually, due to the second meal effect, morning is the worst time to consume carbs! The best time is in a 2 hour window after exercise (which could be in the morning).

      Cereal grains do a lot more damage to the body than merely giving you an insulin boost: http://www.marksdailyapple.com/why-g...are-unhealthy/

        I'm impressed your SO is onboard as is - so I wouldn't stress too much about a slice or two of bread in the morning. The fastest way to get her to drop her support of PB is to become a drill sergeant about what she can or cannot eat.

        I would pick your fights a little better .

          Well, what about bread made from potato flour? Or coconut flour even?

            After being on PB since February I finally made some coconut bread last weekend. It is very eggy and did satisfy that craving for me. My favorite food has always been bread but I haven't really been craving it too much these last few months. I am pleasantly surprised. The coconut bread would be good to use as base for strawberry shortcake this summer. Since I only indulged in one slice, I cut up the rest and put it in the freezer. Occasionally one has to splurge so it might as well be a fairly healthy splurge day. Every six months can't hurt. That is better than the 80% - 20% rule.

                What nonsense; I worry much more about industrial seed oils, excess sugars, lack of sunlight and lack of exercise than a few slices of properly made bread. I eat dark rye bread, like my ancestors in Russia. Delicious with a bit of lard, butter, or olive oil.

                This is a lifestyle, not a rigid diet where you cant enjoy yourself. Everyone has a different idea of compromise; for some that is dairy, others fruit, and for me it is bread. Lighten up and eat some toast.

                  Bread is a bad idea generally. Grains are really, really not good for you.

                  Show her the research that shows that grains cause all kinds of medical problems. I miss toast, too, but I sure don't miss the arthritis, migraines, and IBS that went with it.

                      Everyone just read the first line and hit reply.

                      To the OP, I think you can make bread out of almond flour. I don't have a recipe though.

                          LOL! Strom.

                          I have the same toast thing going on with my hubby. He is not giving it up.... so I just pile on bacon and eggs on top and look the other way.

                            You can attempt to make your own bread that is a bit more primalized.. I have had sucsess with this recipe http://www.elanaspantry.com/gluten-free-bread-20/ which is grain free.. I just substituted the agave nector with a tsp of brown sugar.. one teaspoon in a whole loaf of bread can't be too bad!

                              I don't know. I think that trying to find a substitute for non-primal food is way too close to Atkins and the denial of "oh, I can have my low-carb pasta/bread/sweets/ice cream!" instead of the acceptance of "This is how I eat now." I don't want to suggest bread substitutes. I want to suggest ditching the bread because it's seriously not good for you.
