What do I miss most about my old life? Back in the days when I could eat gluten? Well, I have to say it must be sandwiches.
I began to realize, when I started my lifestyle change, that I ate sandwiches often. And liked them.
That all came to a screeching halt when I reluctantly gave up gluten. But then I started missing them.
Oh, for sure, I found I could have a lettuce wrap with tuna salad or egg salad, as a sandwich substitute. But I have to be honest. It's always a bit messier.
So I began looking for gluten-free bread that would make a good sandwich.
The first thing I noticed is that many of the loves were, shall we say, rather petite! Small square loaves. And they didn't taste very good, even if I toasted them.
Well, and that's another thing I missed on occasion. A nice slice of toast to slather with my homemade apple butter.
So after experimenting with loaves by companies like Schar, Food for Life, EnerG, Kinnikinnick Food, and Glutino, I circled back to the company I highlight last post: Udi's. And especially Udi's Whole Grain Bread.
And guess what? I'm not the only one who thinks that. A taste test by Huffington Post ended up with Udi's Whole Grain on top!
So that means I can still have a slice of toast or a sandwich on occasion--and enjoy it!
If you are exploring gluten-free breads, have you found one you thought was great?
