I miss bagels and bread too but I would miss what I put on them more!

My protein, butter, nut butters, etc. I could never live on bread alone but I can live on all the other stuff and be much healthier as a bonus! I love ALL food so it was easy to find other food to eat that I love just as much. We can't have it all!

empower low carb wraps with 3 grams of carbs per wrap are not too bad for me,other than that I like to eat cheese,salami,olives,etc with optimist crackers with heaps of butter.i know its not really a substitute for bread but its a very good healthy feed.

No need to 'miss scones' for breakfast...I just tried a new recipe from this website this were these good!

Grain-Free Dark Chocolate Cherry Scones (Revised for LCHF)

3 cups blanched almond flour
1 teaspoons baking soda
teaspoon fine sea salt
4 tablespoons butter, as cold as possible (preferably frozen)
2 large eggs
2 tablespoons apple cider vinegar
2 Artificial sweetener of your choice then taste mix for proper amount should be slightly sweet…
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
3 ounces of cold 80% to 90% cacao dark chocolate, cut into bite-size chunks or sugar free chocolate chips.
⅓ cup roughly chopped pecans


Preheat the oven to 350F with the rack in the middle position, and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.

In a large bowl, combine the almond flour, baking soda, and fine sea salt. Use your hands or a pastry cutter to work the pieces of the cold butter into the dry ingredients until a crumbly mixture is produced.

In a separate bowl, thoroughly whisk together the eggs, apple cider vinegar, honey/sweetener, and vanilla extract. Make a well in the middle of the dry ingredients, and pour the egg mixture into it. Gently mix with a spatula until a wet, chunky dough forms, and then add in the chocolate chunks and pecans. Combine the ingredients with your hands, and form two small balls of dough.

On a sheet of parchment paper or a nonstick surface, gently flatten the balls with your hands. The rounds of dough should be about -inch thick. (If the dough’s a little too sticky to handle, refrigerate it for a half hour to firm it up before proceeding.)

Using a pastry cutter or a sharp knife, cut each round of dough into 4 equal-sized wedges, and arrange all 8 pieces on the parchment-lined baking sheet. Bake for 20 to 25 minutes, rotating the tray halfway through. The scones are ready when they’re golden brown, and an inserted toothpick comes out clean. Transfer the scones onto a wire rack to cool before serving.

Thumbs up Good advice

Thanks for the great advice, I am learning to live without certain foods in my life. For the sake of longevity I could learn to eat things without bread. I'm a southern girl and cornbread is a staple. I gave that up when I was first diagnosed and I know I can give up sliced.

The wisest decisions are seldom the easiest.

Good luck, and with that attitude you'll be fine.

Try my The texture is very close to the more course cornbread. I've always thought that if one used organic cold-pressed corn oil (it has a corn taste) then it would even taste more like the real thing.

You're speaking to the choir. I absolutely adore good bread and sandwiches, but like most here I've given it up. It's a mindset and I'm going to do what is best for me no matter how hard it is.

Depending on what your meter tells you, you may be able to tolerate a limited quantity of bread, at the right time of day (probably not at breakfast). I find that I can handle one slice of Trader Joe's organic flourless 7-grain sprouted bread. Spreading it with TJ's natural or organic peanut butter can slow down the rise in blood sugars, as well.

Diagnosed "prediabetic" 2/08 based on FBGs of 127 and 123, A1c of 6.5. I consider myself functionally a Type 2
