Bread Cravings

Does anyone have an idea how to cope with bread cravings? I was brought up eating toast every morning and sandwhiches for lunch. The only gluten free bread here is 'Glutino' which is OK but I am getting tired of it.

I crave the texture the most I think. So I grab some gluten free chips, or make a nice crispy waffle. I think its the crispness of bread that I miss about it. Do you know what about it you miss the most?

I have yet to try any gluten free breads..I fear them.

Why would you fear gluten-free bread? There are a few excellent breads that could easily pass as wheat bread which are from dedicated facilities and are certified...it doesn't get any better than that. I would recommend the Genuis bread by Glutino or my favorite, Canyon bread, available in the US. Canyon is so good, I have fooled people that are not gluten-free into thinking it contained wheat. They had no idea they were eating gluten-free bread. The texture is the same as wheat bread.

I am very sensitive...extremely so that I get sick from small amounts of crumbs yet have never had an issue with this bread. You should never fear gluten-free bread..... ;)

I second the recommendation for Genius bread. I had some this week and I couldn't stop eating sandwiches, it was so good. I'm not really a bread person anymore, but dang if someone gave me that and said it was gluten free I'd've said they were lying through their teeth.

I would also suggest trying to make your own bread. Just experiment with recipes till you find one you like.

I don't know how long you have been gluten free. For the first two years or so I would have cravings for bread. Especially when glutened. Over time they decreased and I hardly ever have cravings anymore, even when I get glutened. I would try to find something that filled the void when it was really bad. I found that Udi's muffins worked really well. They are expensive, but I found good and when I just couldn't stand it I would get some. I also like Udi's bread when I want a sandwich. I know people on the board have good recipes for homemade bread. You might want to look into that if you are up to doing the baking. Good luck.

I should have said I fear the taste/texture! Not gluten! I had a hard time finding crackers I liked at first! Although I think the longer I am gluten free now the better the gluten-free bread products are tasting to me. I figure in maybe 2-3 more months when I do try bread I will have forgotten gluten breads taste and texture.

Udi's is getting easier to find. They have a store finder on their website. http://udisglutenfree.com/ You can mail order Rudi's or Udi's too. Among other places, Gluten-free Mall carries it. I've also gotten really nice fresh bread from the Bob's Red Mill mixes.

I always liked the dense, grainy breads and not so much white bread so didn't have any problems with the better gluten-free breads. I admit, there are some horrible ones out there but the 2 I mentioned are quite good. I also like homemade bread but my husband is the baker and doesn't always have time to make some. The Canyon bread is phenomenal and I always make sure I have a good stock of that. I never used to eat that much bread because, funny enough, it made me feel lousy ;) but I do enjoy my toast in the morning.

Hope you find one you like but try the Canyon if possible. I like the San Juan 7 grain...very close to whole grain bread and it makes killer french toast!
