Bread question.

Looking for a bread or alternative "paleo bread" so if I feel like a sandwich I might grab that instead of my ❤️ Whitebread. Any suggestions?

Re: Bread question.

1) Eat really well and/or Paleo 90+% of the time and when you really feel like a sandwich,
2) Just eat a sandwich.

If you find that you are doing it too often, then you aren't paying enough attention to 1). You don't have to restrict and/or compromise 2).

Re: Bread question.

Quite simple, eat any bread but white bread... find something you like and go with that.

There are loads of bread types that are not white that are really tasty

Re: Bread question.

Another vote for just eat bread when you want it.

I have moved towards wraps myself but that is more because I think they just taste better.

Re: Bread question.

I like Monks bread which tends to have moderately less carbs that your average bread. Then again I ritualistically eat half a pizza once a month.

Re: Bread question.

I'm with the crowd eat whatever but I prefer wheat or a rye/sourdough myself.

If ones diet is great a sandwich shouldn't destroy it

Exactly what I was gonna say. I have read a couple things lately about rye and sourdough being "better" or "less bad" than most others. Rye because its a different grain. Sourdough because its a fermented grain.

A sourdough English muffin with a few slices of turkey, some cheese, and a fried egg... gets me all misty eyed.

Re: Bread question.

Now I need to go to the store and get some fresh baked sourdough, thanks guys. Sourdough, smoked turkey, bacon, avocado, tomato, lettuce, and some mayo....

Hard to beat that.

Re: Bread question.

I'm a little curious about this; is there really a point to whole grain bread?

After some quick "research" I found a bunch of articles that essentially say there's no difference between whole "wheat" bread and white, since most times it's just food coloring or some such nonsense....

(all links WFS)
http://abcnews.go.com/GMA/story?id=126763
http://www.cbsnews.com/news/white-br...eads-clothing/
http://www.webmd.com/diet/truth-about-bread-and-diet
http://www.livestrong.com/article/34...-good-for-you/
http://authoritynutrition.com/why-is-bread-bad-for-you/


But the big thing is that whole "grain" bread is like 50% more better for reasons (glycemic index, fiber count, etc) but my question is - does this really matter?

http://www.trimdownclub.com/is-whole...n-white-bread/

We're talking about a couple of slices of bread, and a difference of like 40 points on the index, and white bread has about the same as a sweet potato which is touted as a miracle food. Plus, does that difference between a whole grain bread vs white bread actually mean anything on a practical level, or is it like taking a daily multi-vitamin - most gets flushed unless you're actually deficient in some nutrient?

I'd imagine that if you're cutting for competition or something, even a 1% difference counts since you're tailoring every single nutrient in and out for a specific outcome, but for a daily intake, is this really a significant difference?

Most looks claim "significant differences" between white and grain diets, but they don't really talk about the rest of the diet, and I wonder if it's the grain's specific impact on the glycemic index, or if it's that people who eat grain are the people who are examining their diets under a microscope and thus have better habits, generally.

Re: Bread question.

Since nobody actually answered your question, I would say go with a lettuce wrap. There are gluten free breads (close as you can get to paleo), but to me they taste like cardboard.
