    Low-carb bread

    Primal Fuel
    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.
