I got a little more information from the Julian Bakery regarding The Paleo Bread. They said that the Almonds they use are soaked and then skinned which eliminates any sort junk from the Almonds. This also lowers the carbs count and gives the bread a better texture. They said that every slice is not just loaded with Almonds but an equal balance of egg whites, and blanched almonds.
Cool, I'll go for that. They also have something called zero-carb bread coming in May. I would like to suggest that they get back to the drawing board and start working on something made with tapioca or coconut flour, as some of us suffer from autoimmunity and may react to nut flour and eggs. I'm gonna at least try 1 loaf of Paleo bread to see how it tastes.
My Primal Meanderings
I used to love bread and the few times I have had wheat flour products since going primal I was like "why the F*ck did I used to eat this stuff?". I can't imagine that fake bread would be anything short of awful in terms of tasting like bread. Bread is a carrier for other foods.
But if it keeps someone from abandoning primal it is probably a good thing. But I think the better idea is to learn to eat without bread- get your sandwich and toast alternatives. You like a BLT? Make a BLT salad. Like burritos? Make a burrito bowl. etc.
I see some of these recipes.... and I just cringe. Just eat real food and if you want a treat, have the real thing on rare occasion- the best version of the real thing- haagen daz, real bread,home made cake, cheesecake.... don't mess around with fakes that probably won't satisfy you anyway.
I always foundwith low fat, that I'd try low fat cookies, be unsatisfied and then go eat the real thing. I'm sure with Paleo Bread it would be the same thing./
Why bother with paleo bread? Just take the things you were going to put into a sandwich, and eat them out of a bowl instead!
People complain that a healthy diet takes too long to prepare, because they deliberately make life difficult for themselves. Life's too short to spend hours baking weird healthy versions of CW junk.
Why the heck would I crave bread when there exists things like steak, eggs, smoked salmon, avocado, parsnip chips, dark chocolate.... nom nom nom...
