Curious Bread Substitutes for Low-Carb Diets
In food trends, there's a fine line between creative and just plain crazy. The latest trend? Low carb bread substitutes. While many think that eliminating carbs from their diets is the key to weight loss, slapping together a cheesy, mayo-laden filling may still cancel out your efforts. Stacey Krawczyk, MS, RD, and the consulting Registered Dietitian for the Grain Foods Foundation, says, “Regardless of any wraps or bread swaps, and given that nearly half of all adults in the US consume one or more sandwiches on any given day, it’s essential to consider that what you put in your sandwich is just as important as whatever the bread used, in determining overall nutrition.” Still want to eliminate carbs but still eat “bread”? We found some tasty carb alternatives to satisfy your cravings. Many of these on this list are easy to find at the grocery store or have easy to prepare recipes.
