I LOVE bread and everyone always talks about how bad it is for you but I feel like I can't get away from it. Does anyone know a good bread substitute that is healthy?

I am a bread lover too!!! And I hate how it has so many carbs :/ buuut You can go to the store and buy coconut flour and find some recipes for that and the carbs are way lower (have not tried it yet tho) and I've tried this stuff called cloud bread which is pretty good for sandwiches and stuff and is easy to make just google the recipe!!

I'm just wondering why all the recipes for cloud bread contain sweetener? I've learned that it's best to stay away from both artificial and natural sweeteners since they can trigger carb and sugar cravings. Sugar alcohol-based sweeteners will also raise blood sugar levels.

I think all it took was eggs cream of tarter cream cheese and one small pack of Splenda which I'm sure you could leave out not sure how it would taste tho

Bread isn't all that bad (i dont eat it much though cuz i try to do low carb) but you could at least try to look at the labels and start trying different kinds of whole grain breads with less sugar and more nutrition.

In the end it's really all about getting proper nutrition and not eating too many calories. Bread can be a part of that if you pay attention to what you're doing.

For slower carbs try wholegrain bread. It shouldn't contain anything but wholegrain, water and salt, no additives or preservatives.
I also make my own low carb bread from eggs, cheese and sesame seeds. There are a lot of low carb bread substitute recipes around and they're usually really simple. I wouldn't go for the one's with almond or coconut flour though, since they are still quite rich in carbs if you eat them a lot.
