Today while browsing at Costco in Colorado Springs, CO I came across Rudi's Gluten Free Multigrain bread, 2- 18 oz. loaves for $6.99. You have to buy a package of two. I have found this bread a much better buy over another popular brand, and now have made this my bread of choice for store purchased gluten free bread. I do not know if it is carried at other Costco stores in other states, but I was estatic to find this product at this price.At last, a bread I can afford.

Thanks for the reminder! I believe someone else here reported finding it in a Northern Virginia Costco. I need to check my store. I don't currently have a Costco membership but if they carry Rudi's I will get one just for that! Rudi's is my favorite over that other one with the simialar sounding name too. ;)

I only tried U once. Never again. Thanks for the Costco heads up. Yes, that would definitely save me $ to join just for R bread. LOVE their cinnamon raisin.

I would love to know the comparison between R and U. Would someone enlighten me on the texture, visual appeal, flavour? I have not ever seen R here (unsure if it is available in Canada) and am wondering what I am missing? I only eat bread about once a week (or less) because the real glutenous version is forever implanted in my brain so nothing compares. Sure, some homemade gluten-free is ok, but will never be the same. Sigh...

I would to love sink my teeth into a thick chewy crusty bread perfect for making bruschetta or crostini. Anything like it on the market?

Did find some Lara bars and was quite underwhelmed. They were alright but I would happily live without! :P

I recently took out the Costco membership only because one opened up near where I live in Arizona....I also belong to Sam's, and the membership cost is split between my sister and I. I also love Rudi's Cinnamon bread, and Costco only sells the multigrain, which I also prefer. I found the Rudi's bread near the bread/cakes/pastry area in an open freezer case on an end aisle....I never venture into that area because of my many food allergies, but hubby was looking for a loaf of gluten bread so I tagged along and am glad I did.I also am able to eat a Costco rotisserie chicken...no wheat,dairy or soy in it. I had to stop eating Sam's rotisserie chicken years ago because of the ingredients. Will have to check the ingredients again next time I shop. Really hate to have membership in both stores, but for me it is necessary. Have purchased a freezer that is kept well stocked with safe food.

Love2travel,

We in California FINALLY have Against the Grain baguettes available to us through Whole Foods. I also longed to eat a gluten-free version of sourdough bread--and now I have it! The two varieties that I've found are the Original and Rosemary baguettes. Here's Against the Grain's website:

If I were using store bought bread to make bruschetta or crostini, I would choose R. I have tried both, and like both. My favorite is R as I think it has a little bit more depth of flavor than U. That said, R does not hold up as well when making a sandwich on non-toasted bread. My son can make a sandwich in the morning before school, and still eat it in one piece at lunch. I have always preferred my sandwiches on toasted bread, but on the occasion that I am in a rush and don't have time to toast, U definitely works better. I think U bread holds up better in general, as compared to R.

I found a wonderful recipe for french bread on the Fire and Salt website. It is my family's favorite. We are 4 out of 5 of us gluten free. I have to say, it took each of us, on average, 2 to 3 years of being away from bread before we were able to find some gluten free breads that we liked. I think we had to be away from the flavor of wheat long enough to be able to appreciate other flavors that were not the same as wheat...but still good.

Isn't it funny how different people can expereince completey different things? My expereience has been the opposite! Udi's untoasted falls apart for me at the slightest bit of moisture in a sandwich and texture-wise it is NOT good untoasted--it's sort of rough, dry and scratchy feeling in my mouth. I need lots of water to choke down a PB and J on untoasted Udi's. Rudi's, on the other hand holds together better (although it will still break apart with lots of moisture or if dipped in a sauce) and if lightly warmed or toasted it gets a little soft in the middle like wonder bread. It's completely eddible to me untoasted however too. Rudi's does break too easy when it's still frozen, however. Sometimes I have to take severel pieces out that are stuck together and wait for them to defrost enough before attempting to pull them apart. I currently have a bag of broken slices waiting to be made into croutons or bread crumbs because I broke them in half while trying to get two frozen pieces apart. If I used the brea dmore often I would proabbly store it in my fridge and not have that problem. I wonder if the way you store the bread impacts the texture and hardiness? I know some stores keep Udi's in the freezer and some keep it on the shelf. Perhaps that is why there are so many differing experiences with these gluten-free breads?

I tried a sample of Against the Grain's pizza at Whole Foods several months ago and have never been able to find one in their freezer pizza section since. So good! By far the best gluten-free frozen pizza I have ever eaten.

I just checked out the website - those baguettes look like they should! Too bad we have nothing of the sort in Canada. Seems like we are almost always far behind the U.S. with gluten-free products... :( Hopefully we will see it here soon!

The only one I like is Rudi's cinnamon raisin toasted. Absolutely can barely even eat Betty Crocker's yellow gluten-free cake mix because it tastes so bad. The brownies are great! But, that's not bread. Am looking forward to trying Rudi's multigrain bread very much.

I've never seen the cinnamon raisin bread but that okay because I never really ate cinnamon raisin bread when I could eat gluten. The multi-grain bread is pretty good. BC yellow cake mix is very, very dry. It's only tolerable to me if I add some pumpkin puree and make cucakes with lot so of icing, NOT cake. Pamela's white cake mix is the best I've tried but I don't think I can have that anymore since most of her products have milk in them.

I never ate cinnamon raisin bread pre-gluten-free either :)

I have tried both and prefer Udi's. There is no sugary sweet taste at all unlike Rudi's. Rudi's is excellent for french toast though. It is more of a dessert tasting bread.

Yes, Rudi's here in Northern Virginia. At the Pentagon City Costco, specifically. Frozen. :) I like it a bit better than Udi's because it seems more substantial. However, I only toast it to have with my coffee in the morning. I've never tried it on sandwiches. I've given up on sandwiches and just eat corn tortillas as roll-ups.

And, Against the Grain baguettes are THE BEST! omg... I try not to buy them often because I can eat an entire one at one sitting, with real butter. {drool}

Where do you buy the baguettes? I've never seen them in Indy.

    • Yeah been there, done that, I have broken down to learning to how to cook acorns even, fall I steal pumpkins from the city decorations after halloween so I can eat the seeds and sell the meat in baked goods at the markets. I sometimes used to take produce from the grocery stores. Note you can sometimes talk with a manager and haggle on damaged produce they would toss.  I do not do steal them anymore, my family now offers to support me more now days, and the farmers market and bakery sales keep it where I can just afford food.

           It is  risky state, you have to MAKE sure you eating plenty of fat and protein. Otherwise your body eats itself, as the next best source for fats and protein is the stuff stored on your body as the fat and muscles your have. I live this way myself bit more mild since I can not eat meats. But I eat plenty of egg whites, nuts, seeds, and leafy greens. I literally eat every 4-5 hours at least a protein shake to prevent my body from turning on itself. You can actually body build in ketososis. You just need to really load on the fats and protein, it makes for a LEAN and slow building process....not as easy as carb bulking but my only choice due to my ulcerative colitis having carb, and sugar triggers.

          I am allergic to corn and break out in a rash from it....my mother is hispanic and well you see where that goes, I recall about a year ago she hugged and kissed me on the cheek....well she had eaten something with corn or drank a soda cause I ended up with a red rash in a lip imprint on my cheek bit amusing story for you.   I did a post earlier about where to bulk buy foil sheets, and freezer paper online from my supplier for my bakery I will update this later today with links for you. Buy in industrial rolls and they last you 4-6months
       
    • FYI newly diagnosed should not have oats right away. 
    • You may want to ask your doctor for a celiac panel. That would be a good start. The biopsy needs to be done next to an active lesion and they need to be looking for DH.  Unfortunately it can take a while for DH to be diagnosed because many doctors are not very knowledgeable in the skin form of celiac. Keep eating gluten until all celiac related testing is done. Then you can try the diet if the doctors haven't been able to figure things out or won't test properly.  It can take some time for DH to resolve so you might not notice a difference right away and folks with DH tend to be very sensitive to even small amounts of gluten so you must be very strict. Hope you get some relief soon as I know how miserable the rash can be.
    • Take the opportunity to get healthy!    Nuts, seeds, fruits, take these as snacks on your drive. I personally love almonds and pumpkin seeds. Or bananas and blueberries. Or if you need protein there's lots of gluten free protein bars at gas stations. I like to pack hard boiled eggs too.  One thing I do for long trips is I make sort of a granola/protein bar at home and take it with me.    1 cup oats 3 eggs two spoonfuls of peanut butter some cinnamon and a banana.   mash it all together and bake it like a cake for about 20 minutes. Chop em up into little bars and bag em for your trip. just get creative and try new things! 
    • I totally understand.    Ive noticed the same thing when I started really ramping up my fitness program.    To start, cut out the 30 day challenges. If your serious about fitness, you will incorporate it as a normal entity of life. We already have compromised immune systems so putting sudden outbursts (or challenges) of stress on it will only make you more susceptible to pathogens and ultimately, get you sick.    Take a week, only stretch, light cardio, very light strength training, and lots of rest. Next week, add a little more. Show your body that you can handle it, but do it push it by any means. This new training regime is forever, it's your lifestyle. Take it easy, and play it smart. Slowly add more intense training over time... slowly. Get to a point where you feel your nutrition and fitness needs are being satisfied, and you're productively making differences.   i personally work out 3-4 days a week. But if I go too hard, I get sick. Then I get frustrated that I can't exercise, I work out anyway, and get even more sick. It's just not smart. So I stopped that. I have respect for my immune system and its limits. I took it very slow, and increased my intensity over time. Now I'm at that golden point in my life where everything is balanced. Progress (in terms of personal aesthetics for myself and my interests) is slow, but it's progress. And it's a hell of a lot better than the go hard and get sick cycle.   Best of luck to you friend! I'm sure you will find your way! Learn your body. Know that you are strong, you are powerful, you just have to play it smart.
