Default Gluten free bread that tastes like bread?

Bread makes my ankles swell. Store-bought bread is worst but even home made makes me retain water too.

I'm assuming it's the gluten that's doing it, although I don't know enough to know. I'm really struggling to find a bread to substitute. I don't eat a whole lot of bread but sometimes a sandwich, or toast for breakfast is handy, and fibre-rich too.

I tried some rice bread last week. It was the most disgusting thing I've ever eaten.
I bought some multigrain gluten free - 3 for about16 tiny slices! It's not disgusting but it's not bread. It's far too crumbly to use for sandwiches too.

Has anyone come across either a brand of gluten-free bread that actually handles like bread OR (as it might not be available in the uk anyway) a recipe I could make?

many thanks.

I'm only using sprouted breads right now. One of the brands, Food for Life, has gluten free bread bu its all rice bread. I rarely eat bread though, maybe a sandwich once a month.
You can't out-exercise poor eating habits.
