BREAD. If you are living the Metabolism Miracle lifestyle (or following a low carb diet), you probably realize that many low carb bakers or bread product manufacturers produce questionable “low carb bread” with ingredients and Nutrition Facts that don’t add up.
Some low carb bakers have met with class action lawsuits for lying about the contents/promotion/ Nutrition Facts regarding their baked products.
Consumers are paying top dollar for what they believe to be low in carbohydrate grams, but notice they are getting nowhere in terms of losing fat and keeping it off. How is the consumer to know if low carb baked goods are real or frauds? As a registered dietitian for over 35 years, I can tell you it’s close to impossible.
Thankfully, there is a bakery that is transparent about their Nutrition Facts and Ingredients. Top quality ingredients make their breads, muffins, rolls, desserts, soft pretzels, pizza crust and more “NEUTRAL” for The Metabolism Miracle.
The name of my FAVORITE low carb bakery is: The Great Low Carb Bread Company. You can find their many “real” products on their website: http://www.greatlowcarb.com.
When I tell you their products are Neutral….they really are no- countable- carb breads, rolls, buns, breadsticks, pizza crust, soft pretzels, and even bagels!
I was thinking of a few items that are typically “no go’s” on their low carb program. Check out the French Toast, Croutons, Soup Topper, and Breadcrumbs that are NEUTRAL when using the Great Low Carb Bread Company’s bread of your choice!
GLCBC = Great Low Carb Bread Company
1.No Carb French Toast: Dip your GLCBC bread in an egg mixture (For 1 serving I use 2 slices of GLCBC bread added to a beaten mixture of 2 medium eggs or scant 1/2 c Egg Beaters™, 3Tbls half and half, 1/8 tsp vanilla extract, and a very tiny pinch of salt. Dip both sides of the bread into the egg mixture. Brown on both sides in a frying pan coated with butter or oil. Zero countable carbs when you use GLCBC bread and “Walden Farms™” Carbohydrate- Free Maple Flavored Syrup!
2.No Countable-Carb Croutons. Spray or spritz cubed GLCBC bread with olive oil and sprinkle with your favorite herbs and spices. I use garlic powder, dill weed, Italian Seasoning and grated Parmesan Cheese. Broil on a parchment paper- lined baking sheet until golden brown, turn the cubes, spray with olive oil, and add more seasoning and cheese. Remove when golden brown and allow to cool. Zero countable carb flavored croutons!
3.Carb- free topper for onion soup (vegetable soup, too). Place your Neutral onion or vegetable soup in an oven safe soup or crock bowl. Sprinkle GLCBC croutons to the top of the soup, sprinkle with parmesan cheese, and cover with a slice or two provolone cheese. Broil or bake until cheese melts. You have zero carbs lots of veggies, and high protein in this combination of GLCBC bread AND cheese with veggies.
4.Make no countable carb breadcrumbs: Simply prepare GLBC croutons. When cooled, put toasted croutons into a food processor and make NO CARB BREADCRUMBS! You can use these “neutral” bread crumbs in your meatloaf, meatballs, as a breading for chicken and fish.
