Default Breads that are ok

I'm not totally limiting carbs, just trying to keep everything in check, carbs, fat, protein, calories. It can be difficult to find any bread taht doesn't have 18+ carbs per slice.

I found this Cedar's Lavash Bread at BJ's that's absolutely wonderful. It's got all the good stuff, Omega-3's, Flax, whole wheat. It tastes SO good. I think per 1/2 slice (they're HUGE, at least 12" x 6") it's only 7 carbs and that 1/2 slice is perfect.

I really like Alvarado St. Flax seed bread. One serving is 100 cals and TWO slices of bread. I think it is labeled low-carb due to all the fiber, but I buy it because I like it and it is low cal.

My favorite is "the baker". Only 50 calories per slice and it is hearty.

I don't know about all these fancy smarmy breads. I just get bread at the grocery store. And I've found that the Sarah Lee Whole Wheat with Honey and 1g sugar to be good. It's 45 cals per slice. I don't recall the total carbs (not home right now), but they're low.

I use the Sara Lee Delightful whole wheat at 45 calories a slice and 6.5 net carbs. Or the Natures Own whole wheat at 50 calories a slice. Both are soft and taste very good. I have bought some of the lavash flat bread and used it like pizza crust to make home-made low-cal/low-carb pizza with. Tonite I had a pepperidge farm whole wheat hamburger bun and it was soft and tasted great. (last time I bought the Sara Lee ww buns they weren't near as tasty).

I am NOT a good baker but I like making my own because I don't like all the "additives" in store-bought bread. I make quick breads from the Southaven Farm mixes and love the whole wheat and the 100% multi-grain. I do them by hand although I can do them in the breadmaker too on quick bread cycle. They are about 4 grams fiber per slice but I don't remember the carb grams (since I don't count carb grams). If you want to look, they're at southavenfarm.com. Just another option...

My personal favorite sliced bread is Nature's Own Sugar Free 100% Whole Wheat. It's 50 cals a slice, so I don't have to blow too many calories at lunch when I eat a sandwich. I also use their hamburger and hot dog buns.

I am so glad someone wrote about bread. I eat whole wheat breads (different brands) but in the Best Life book I picked up he constantly talk about Wasa crispbread and Ezekiel 4:0 Organic Sprouted Whole Grain bread.
Anyone tried those or know where to find them? Isn't whole wheat with 3g of dietary fiber good enough??

I love bread and I want to keep it in my diet but I want to make sure I am choosing the kind that is best for me.

Ezekiel bread ROCKS! I find it at my organic grocery store in the refrigerated section, or in the co-op. They have other products too, I think.

My bread standard is 15g carbs and 2g fiber for each slice.

At the grocery stores I go to, Ezekiel bread is mostly in the frozen section. Some gourmet grocery stores have it out with the normal bread. It just depends.

I found the Wasa Crispbread near the crackers at Whole Foods Market (don't know if you have one near you). I love those things at snack time with different toppings on them.

I love ezekiel bread. I have found it at both my local grocery stores and the health store has it too_ at a higher price. Some keep it in the freezer section, which I recommend, some in the fresh aisle. They even have a bran one without soy flour which I highly recommend!

Organic sprouted wheat, it doesn't get any better than that. (store bought wise anyhow)

I recently found ezekiel in Trader Joe's although previously I had only seen it in stores like Whole Foods. The ingredients are good and I think it is even cheaper than my normal brand of bread.

Just make sure to keep the ezekiel frozen. It is my favorite bread (and the buns absolutely ROCK) but it goes stale in a hurry.

Hmm interesting, Trader Joe's had Ezekiel with the rest of their breads (sitting out room temperature) and I put it in my fridge without a problem. I do remember Whole Foods having it in the freezer section though so I don't know why the difference.
