My Quest for Edible Gluten Free Bread

 


This is my gluten free bread of choice.
I hide it under egg and lots of cheese or slather with Peanut Butter and Maple Syrup.
Edible is all it is
I MISS BREAD MADE WItH WHEAT.

I love unsalted tops Saltines, and our cookie jar is always full of them, since Bob, Beau and I LOVE THEM..
I had to give them up but I found Gluten Free Table Crackers that are the only gluten free product I can say are delicious. 

 Schar Table Crackers are even better than my unsalted Saltines.
They are expensive and hard to find. 

I order them by the box of 5 Packages each containing 6 small packages with 6 double crackers in each.
that is 180 crackers, this will last a long time. I eat about 3 crackers a day.

Today I opened the container and it was empty.
I looked in the cabinet where I store them.
Nothing!
 I opened every cabinet in the Kitchen.
 Twice!
I started to fret.
Did I eat them ALL and not remember it?
 When did I get them? 
How could something bigger than our toaster oven disappear?

 Maybe I did eat them, 
Maybe I just thought I ordered them.
I went back to the first cabinet and pulled out the dog food and his meds and there it was all the way in the back,
Hiding in Plain Sight!
The box came in solid white plastic and the white blended with the white wall.
That's my story and I am sticking to it.
I am not crazy! yet!
These are my go-to Snack, alone or with topping of choice.
Pinaple and mayo, PBJ, Chicken or Ham salad, Egg Salad or just a dollop of Lactain cottage cheese. topped with olives.

What is your go to snack?

You are such a good researcher! My go to snack is something under 50 calories. Usually a marshmallow, merangue, or pretzels.

Oh I know all about that 'in plain sight' discovery of the thing you thought had gone AWOL... sigh... I'm not really a snack person, though if I do want a between meals graze, it is likely to be a piece of fruit or a few cashew nuts... YAM xx

Hello,

I try to avoid eating bread, I have found these gluten free Milton crackers with sea salt that I like. I have never seen the brand Schar here, they would be good with peanut butter. Take care, enjoy your day!

I tried to convince myself that gluten free stuff was okay but really it wasn't. I gave up and just try to limit the amount of wheat I eat now.

My mother combined mayo on her pineapple too!! (I do pineapple/cheese).

My snack is usually popcorn *with butter.

Why is it that the healthier choices are so expensive? I don't do much snacking any more but I do like rice cakes.

I too love unsalted saltines but try not to eat too many. Once in a while I go on a binge and find them irresistible! I'm glad you've finally found a bread and crackers that you can enjoy, but somehow, I think you'll always be on the lookout for new things, Sandra!!...jp

More great information to share with my DIL. Thanks! Now I'm trying to remember ... there was an unleavened, unsalted cracker I used to love. Kind of like a Matzos. I've searched and searched, to no avail.

Prior to my weight loss kick-off, my go-to was unsalted peanuts. Now it's whatever's in the fridge that doesn't contain carbs. (Getting mighty weary of that turkey, however. LOL)

PA - I just remembered the name of those crackers I loved: Waldorf.

It's a challenge to eat good healthy things. I need to find more KETO products that I can have. Happy weekend!

It must be challenging having diet issues with carbohydrates. We like wholewheat bread and crackers. Specialist food products are expensive. I'm thinking peanut butter must be nutritious although I don't like the texture myself. Glad you found the stash of crackers you can tolerate.

I thought the story would end with you suspecting that Bob and Beau ate them all (LOL) I like Saltiners too (although don't know if my Swedish ones are exactly the same as yours). I only buy them sometimes though because they're in the category of food that if I have them, I tend too eat too many... One favourite snack of mine is a kind of maize/corn cracker - especially with cheese on top (yum). I don't need to keep to gluten free, but those happen to be.

Wow you really are getting to down - I know gluten free - but why salt free? That is what Rick has to eat now. ☺

Lately my go-to snack involves about 1/4 to 1/2 cup of Greek yogurt with some cashews or half an apple or other fruit. None of my friends or family share my craving for Greek yogurt. It does have an astringent?? taste. But I like tart things and I think it's lower sugar count helps me keep my blood sugar in range.Best wishes on your holiday eating and merrymaking!

I hang my head in shame...
I have gained 5 pounds just by looking at food I'm not suppose to have.
Now I'm going to have to get some rice cakes and some Swedish flat bread...which I'm really not suppose to eat but I can get away with a bit of it to satisfy my cravings. They do have to have real butter on them though.
Glad you found those crackers. Never heard of them before.
Enjoy your Sunday "off".

I just ate crackers and milk.....
I also like graham crackers and milk....
One snack I eat often is rice cakes....saltines WITH the salt....popcorn....

CheerfulMonk said...

I can easily understand why you missed them the first time you looked. My favorite snack is fruit.

Debby@Just Breathe said...

Glad you found a cracker that you like. Sometimes I will have a Reese's dark chocolate PB cup or PG M&M's but not very often. I do like a very small bowl of Pepperidge Farm whole grain crackers.

We eat sour dough rye with flax seeds. Crackers are rare. We eat snacks made from chickpea flour or a half apple but now as we are in Christmas times we are nibbling on some sweet goodies like dark chocolate or a bit of specialty cake. We did gluten free a while back meaning no rice etc but it made no difference. We found a digestive track cleanse made a difference. We use daily flaxseed oil in capsules as our brains need fat to stay healthy. Sugar is also not used much. No smoothies or large glasses of fruit juice is a no no.
Lots of salads and veggies are a daily await.
Once in a while we get a take out meal.

I am constantly losing something in plain sight!

I can relate, I will go into a cupboard a couple of times and not see what I am looking for, and on the third or fourth time there it is as plain as day. My go to snack is a palmful of chopped walnuts.
