There are a lot of low-carb bread choices out there, but most of them
are based on soy flour, and I find that I can only eat soy-laden bread if I
heavily toast it first. Fortunately for me, there are much better
My current favorite is the whole wheat version of Oroweat Light
(they also have a 9-grain that I don't like as well). This bread has only
5.5 net carbs per slice with 4 grams of fiber, so I can have an occasional
slice or two without worry. Oroweat also has a Carb Counting bread,
but it has soy, and I don't like it nearly as well. When you're reading
the label for breads, remember to pay attention to how many slices are in a
serving: Oroweat Light has 2 slices per serving, while their Carb Counting
bread has only 1 slice per serving (how weird).
A great alternative to bread is to get into low-carb tortillas. I use
them for the traditional tacos and fajitas, but also for things like a
taco-style hamburger, a turkey sandwich, or even a quick pizza for one. My
most frequent choice is from La Tortilla Factory, which (for the
size I buy) has only 4 net carbs per tortilla, and 9 grams of fiber (which
sounds like a lot, but it doesn't taste like a lot).
There are also recipes for cooking biscuits and such using Carbquik
and/or nut flours (such as almond flour). I'll add some of those soon...
