I miss bread. It’s been a year since I went gluten-free. For the most part, it’s been a wonderful experience. I’m no longer wracked with massive stomach aches after every meal. For the first time in my life, I’m my target weight. And I’m generally happier (because I’m not in abdominal pain all the time.)
And let’s face it, rice bread just isn’t the same. Don’t get me wrong, there are good breads out there, especially by the Schar company. In fact, they make the best Italian and French loaves I’ve ever tasted!
Still, the bread I’m talking about is sandwich bread. See, I’m in the middle of the NaNoWriMo Summer Camp. As I race to finish my book in 30 days, there are times when I just want to grab something quick for lunch. My kids, bless them, have offered to make me a sandwich from time to time but that doesn’t work.
And a girl gets tired of rolled up ham and cheese on a toothpick. So quite by accident, I discovered a crisp bread that’s tasty and decent substitute for sandwich bread. Best of all it’s gluten-free.
So tell me, what do you use a substitute for the foods you miss? 🙂
