Read about the 5 Very Important Points about Bloated Stomach Gas

Low Carb Bread Substitutes For Low Carbohydrate Diets

low-carb-bread-substitutesOne of the most difficult challenges in a low carb diet is finding low carbohydrate bread substitutes. I love bread and given the option I would eat hard roles or French bread slathered with butter at every meal but most breads are simply off the menu in a low carb diet.

Finding bread substitutes can be difficult especially if you are a bread-a-holic like me. Pepperidge Farm makes several reduced carbohydrate breads that are both tasty and satisfying though usually more expensive than regular bread at the grocery store.

It used to be that peanut butter was the standby lunchbox favorite. Then peanuts became a deadly enemy and moms had to start getting creative. As adults, many of us have rediscovered the nostalgic taste.

Today, eating gluten free is so popular it is hard to …
