Gluten free bread

I would love everyone's opinion on gluten free bread. Classes just started up again and my schedule requires me to bring lunch to school. Sandwiches are the easiest thing to throw together, but I won't be doing that every week. I was wondering if gluten free bread would be a better alternative to regular bread for the 5x a week, probably every other week, that I end up bringing sandwiches for lunch?

This is the brand that I've tried: http://www.schar.com/us/gluten-free-...c-white-bread/

It has a long ingredient list and contains soy, which makes me think that maybe regular bread would be better?

I tried making spinach bread, and it came out fine, but I'm just not crazy about it. Any other bread/wrap alternatives?

Thanks!

Corn tortillas could work, but I'd say it depends on what your going for. If your trying to be healthy and you actually have a gluten intolerance then finding a gluten free bead could be beneficial but if your trying to lose weight than gluten free bread is really just the same as any other bread, just different ingredients. I have also heard of hemp bread and ezekiel bread but i have never tried either. Lettuce wraps could be good for on the go food?

Re: Gluten free bread

I didn't think of corn tortillas...I don't think I have a gluten intolerance, although I have noticed a difference in how I feel when I eat it vs. cutting it out completely.
I hadn't thought of lettuce either for some reason...that's a good idea. I clearly put a ton of thought into alternatives!!

Thanks for the input!!

Re: Gluten free bread

I like Ezekiel bread and it does not contain soy. The only downside is that it comes frozen, so you have to toast it before using.

Is all their bread gluten free? Which one do you normally buy?

No, they have sprouted and whole grain breads that contain wheat/gluten. You need to look for their line of specifically wheat/gluten free breads, they're very clearly labeled on the packaging.

Re: Gluten free bread

My opinion is if you dont have a gluten intolerance...why give it up? Just eat in moderation.

Re: Gluten free bread

You can go from not gluten intolerant to gluten intolerant or even celiac entirely by eating grains, if you have the dna template that makes you succeptible to it.

Re: Gluten free bread

Lettuce wraps. If you're at a point where you believe the benefits of going gluten free or paleo, there is no reason to be eating gluten-free substitutes. It's not an exciting answer but that's the way it is.
