What's the best (diet-friendly!) bread you have found?


Quote  |  Reply

I thought I was doing pretty well with my 100 calorie per slice 100 percent whole wheat, but I HATED that I was getting 200 calories of carbs in a single sandwich, even if they WERE whole wheat.


My find today:  100 percent whole wheat, 45 cal per slice, 5g fiber per 2 slices.  Sara Lee.  I'm very very happy.  No idea about taste yet though!

weight watchers whole wheat pitas, they are huge!

ive heard theres even a good 35 cal bread..... idk bout brand, taste or price tho.  45 is still way btr then 100!  good job!  im makin the switch myself when i buy groceries today!  im excited

I get nature's own light wheat... it's 40cal/slice but nothing for the tastebuds, lol... kinda dry and the crust is like sandpaper in my opinion... I prefer the whole grain flatout flatbreads and then make wraps out of my sandwich stuff.  100 cal/flatbread and they are very large, soft and tasty.

Try Saralee Light Honey Wheat. It tastes really good, and i can't tell a difference in texture or taste from regular breads. The only difference is that it's a bit less dense. Nothing to complain about and it is 45 calories per slice!

I buy Weight-Watchers Malted Danish in the UK...tastes great toasted and only 50kcals per slice, great for a chicken, tuna, half-fat cheese sandwich....or even better with poached eggs

 I agree.  SaraLee is the best!  A real sandwich!  Search the food data base for more info on it.  You will not be disappointed.

Thomas makes an excellent 100 calorie English muffin.  High fiber and all the good stuff.

I like the flat-out wraps as well.  (usually in front of or near by the deli) 90-110 calories depending on what version you buy.

Mission makes a low-carb whole wheat or white flour tortilla.  110 calories (they actually get an A for a grade here.)  Just the right size (8") for a breakfast burrito.

I've tried the Weight Watchers breads, and while they are fine, I didn't like the price.

i don't worry much about it.  i look for a bread that's high in fibre, low in sodium, has less than 120 calories, and tastes good.  and if it's on sale - so much the better.

i rarely eat more than one slice a day, and never two slices at a meal.  if i have a sandwich, it's either open-faced or a half-sandwich.  i like bread, but i'd rather save the calories for the protein part of the sandwich.

i also often use bread as a pasta substitute.  a slice of toast with home-made spaghetti sauce is yummy, and the toast is about half the calores of a serving of pasta.  very satisfying!

i practically live off of Aunt Millie's light wheat multi grain.

its absolutely delicious and only 35 calories a slice, and if you dont want wheat they have potato and regular white around 34-45 calories a slice.

Whatever's on sale with 3-5g fiber and 30-80 calories per slice.  Around here that's been Healthy Life and Natural Ovens lately.

If you are eating a sandwich, I have been lately making mine with Arnold Select Sandwich Thins.  There are many types, the rye being my favorite. They also have a multigrain. They are 100 calories of the whole thing (top and bottom), and they have about 5 grams of fiber.

The other day I put turkey, tomato and lowfat cheese on them and then browned both sides in a pan to make a melt. It was really good and the whole melt was around 250 calories. It was very yummy.

Hey, mommakitty, what are you doing in my pantry!!!

Those are my three mainstays for bread (one of the few processed foods I stick with):  Sara Lee Light Honey Wheat, Thomas' 100 cal English Muffins, and FlatOut Flat Bread. 

All have great flavor and texture and are low fat and a good source of fiber.

I'm all about flavor, texture, fibre, & sodium. I usually buy Silver Hills (16 Grain, Flax, & Squirrely) or Healthy Way (Alpine Grain, Flax, & Twenty Loaf). Of course I always have whole wheat pita (it's delivered fresh every day to where I work.

I'm not sure if these 2 brands are only regional but if you can find it Schwebel's and Nickle's both make lite white, wheat and multi grain breads. They each have 35 calories a slice. Also both brands actually use whole grain flower in the grain and multi grain, not enriched wheat flower like you'd see in some "wheat" breads. Both brands taste great and are pretty decent in size. I buy which ever brand is on sale or depending on what grocery store I'm at.

 I second this response, and only add that its called "Delightful" on the packaging in case you go look for it. It tastes great and is so LIGHT. :)

They use a HIGH RATIO SHORTENING in those breads. It allows you to pump more water into the dough. It is the same type of shortening that is used when making frosting/icing in bakeries.

 Just checking to see if you had a English muffin or two to spare.  I want eggs benedict for breakfast tomorrow. 

Sara Lee 45 cal bread is great for sandwiches. MMM... i just can't afford $4 a loaf.

So right now, we're eating the cheapie generic white bread from the store thats like $0.90 a loaf. Good thing is, its only 50 cals a slice. I miss my whole grain though... Still searching for something yummy and cheap.

The side effects of allergy medications keep some people from using them. Natural remedies can be a great alternative, but some are more effective than others.
