Low Carb Bread?

*Rated Best Low Carb Bread of 2010**

We ship our low carb bread nationwide and also offer our bread in local stores listed below. All of our grains are fresh ground daily. We use whole grain in this unique low carb formula to make a complete protein LOW CARB BREAD. We bake our bread fresh and then ship it to your door. If your on a low carb diet or looking to maintain or lose weight then this bread is ideal for you as it only has 1 Net Carb per slice.

There is no other bread like it on the market. This low carb bread is simply perfect for taking in the proper amount of daily fiber and protein with 12g of protein per slice and 12g of fiber. The bread has a net 1 carb which allows you to be carb conscious on a low carb diet. This bread has sprouted organic grains increasing the fiber and moisture of the bread and making it easy to digest.

So I saw this bread mentioned online and wondered if it would be too good to be true.  I looked at their website — and also noticed that they carried some specialty breads that are soy-free.  Now, I know that soy-free bread sounds kinda “duh”?  But really — if you have a loaf of bread in your house, go look at the ingredients right now.  No, really.  Go look.  I’ll bet you a Flintstones vitamin that it has soy in it.  Cause they all do unless you buy specialty bread.  And my kids?  Well I wouldn’t say they have an allergy because they won’t end up in the hospital if they eat soy or milk.  They have an intolerance.  One we try to avoid.

So I made an order in hopes that it wouldn’t suck.

And it came in — it looked soooo good.

And then.. my life exploded.  EGDs, CTs, etc.

But when I felt adventurous, I decided to give this stuff a whirl.  And .. wow.

Evening Snack for one..

I have to say — I like it.  This is good stuff.  This is not a white bread by any stretch of the imagination — so get that out of your head.  This can most likened to a heavy wheat bread that still has all the oats still in it.  Every once in awhile you’ll get a seed in a bite — but it’s very pleasant.  It’s got a nice flavor that even my kids like (although THIS variety is not soy-free, so they only stole small pieces and do not get to have much of it) and if a 2 year old will eat it — well, it’s not horrible.

What I really like about this stuff?  I’m a bread WHORE.  I love it.  I need it.  It sets off all sorts of bells and whistles in me — and I crave it.  We go out to eat and the baskets of bread beckon to me like sirens in the sea.  This is LEGAL BREAD my friends.  Totally legal.  And get this — it’ll help that problem your calcium and iron cause go down the drain.

Did you see those stats?  12g protein, 13g carbs with 12 being fiber?  1 net carb folks.  1!  For BREAD.  And it doesn’t taste like ass or a cardboard box!

It does have a catch — and of course you knew there would be one.  It’s $7.99 a loaf, with a loaf being about 14 slices, plus shipping.   Now, if you compare this to an average loaf of bread, this would be expensive.  However, if you view it as a protein source (and, at 12g per SLICE, it is) then it’s cheaper than many protein shakes.

The shipping can kill you if you only get one loaf at a time.  The key would be to stock up and freeze a bunch, thus saving shipping if you don’t live locally.  But this?  This kills my “OMGIWANTBREAD!” craving and would help keep me from noshing on bagels.  To me, that’s worth a bit of extra planning and some extra money.

And yes, I will be buying more.  Just as soon as I figure out which of the soy-free breads my kids like the best..
