    cravings for bread

    Shop Now
    I have cut out grains for about two weeks now but it is bread I have a huge issue with, I don't miss pasta, rice or cereals but bread is killing me. My hubby has toast and the smell drives me insane. I haven't given in yet but has anyone got any ideas to help? I did give in to an ice cream and a couple (about 10) chips last week but nothing since.

    Just try and hold off it for a few more weeks, then like me, you won't even want to go near that bland crap.

    Oh I hope so! I used to eat a really seedy loaf from greggs so it was quite tasty. When you have soup what do you have with it, if anything?

    I don't usually have soup, I'd just eat it alone if I did though, maybe make it thicker?

    If you enjoy eating bread then why are you torturing yourself? Have a few pieces and be happy!

    Have more ice cream, go buy some good quality Hagen Daaz. Do *not* give in to a craving for bread.

    I say have a piece of bread if that's what you really want. Try sprouted grain like Ezekiel, it has a lower effect on blood sugar and less gluten

    If you can, don't give in. For me, it bloats and triggers strong sugar cravings in a way ice cream or sugar does not. However, get some distance from bread- a couple of months, then try a small piece and if you are lucky it will taste like an old sponge and you'll never want it again.
