Finding The Right Bread...
0

7 posts in this topic

Hi

I have just been diagnosed with celiac disease. I am 20 years old, and I am trying different foods, and trying to cope with this.

My hardest food to find is bread. I am already a picky eater as it is, and I like just normal white bread. Well now I can't have bread at all. I have tried the brown rice bread and tapiocca bread, I didn't really care for either of them. They are both thick, and have a spongy feeling to them, and I am on medicine that makes my mouth dry, so its even harder trying to eat this bread. Does anybody know of any kind of bread that just taste like white bread, and isn't real thick and spongy??

I keep seeing the bread that you can make yourself, does anybody know is that worth trying?

Well if anybody has any suggestions please let me know!

Thanks!!

Kim

there is one i particularly like. its kinnikinnick quick bread mix. it is very easy! 3parts mix with 2 parts liquid. stir well and bake. and its probably the best i have tried. others i like are pamela's bread mix and gluten free pantry sandwich bread. both of those taste good and have a decent texture. i like these better than prepackaged breads

there are good recipes out there... i, however, have not yet been able to bake one i was content with. in time though i hope to learn to do this more successfully. i hope you find one you like though!

I haven't tried/looked for store bread since the beginning of being Gluten Free. I haven't found a store bread that I cared for.

I like Gluten Free Pantry Bread Mixes, they are good. The Sandwich bread mix is good for everyday stuff. They also have a French bread mix that you can do bread or pizza crust with.

Lately I've stopped with the bread mainly b/c I don't have time to make it. My sub for bread is the Mission White Corn Tortillas. I heat them up on the stove in a pan (brown each side a little so it doesn't break). I make taco shaped wraps with these, peanut butter/jelly and fold in half, taco meat etc. The tortillas are easy to make stuff with plus they are inexpensive and in any grocery store.

A lot of it is trial and error with what you like the taste of.

Good Luck

Hi guys!

Thank you! That sounds good. I will try those ideas! I think I will get the sandwhich bread mix too, and the tortilla's! Thanks! will let you guys know how it taste!

I know this is very tricky, and it is basically everything is pretty much experimental I have learned. Also being living at home still it is very hard that the whole house is like gluten gluten gluten, and here I have to be gluten free.

I have found great cereals, and pasta, and things like that, but that is about it.

Well I am going to go now. Talk to you gusy soon, once again thanks for everything!

I just stopped eating bread all together, personally.

Sorry that's probably not much help, lol.

I find that most baked flour goods irritate me. I'm not completely

intolerant to them, but my body doesn't like them much. I eat mostly

rice, raw produce, beans, meat, and a little bit of cheese.

The following is a link to the recipe for my favorite gluten free bread from Gluten Free Girl. (I hope the link copies, I'm not very good at this!) It's also a favorite of the non-gluten-free members of my family -- they start eating it as soon as it comes out of the oven!

http://glutenfreegirl.blogspot.com/2008/11...wich-bread.html

I have made a lot of gluten free bread from mixes and recipes. To me, this is by far the best. The recipe is long and intimidating at first; but, after making it a couple of times it's not a big deal. Usually, I make a double batch, slice it, and freeze it. Then I can just toast for sandwiches, breakfast, etc.

Also, I just got a bread machine and Annalise Robert's cookbook "Gluten Free Baking Classics for the Bread Machine". I have made several bread machine loaves using her recipes. All very quick, easy and great taste and texture. My non-gluten-free 4-year-old still refers to the Gluten Free Girl recipe as "the real bread", though.)

Good luck!

I have to be careful of sunflower/safflower oils and the only kind I've tried so far is the millet bread (food of the earth I think) its pretty good, WAY too many calories, but good. I usually eat one slice since each slice is 100 calories.
