Best Place For Udi Bread

I have eaten at Jason's Deli lots of times and love their Udi bread deli sandwiches. The bread is so totally different than the stuff you buy at WF. It is bigger, heavier with a wonderful flavor and texture. It is alot like the old fashioned rye bread I ate as a kid.

When I was there over the weekend for my favorite pastrami sandwich, I happened to ask if they sell the breads. They do! The loaf is 30 ounces, whole grain, gluten free, dairy free, soy free and nut free. It is Kosher and parve. It is made special for Jason's and you cannot purchase it from a store. The pieces are huge. They are about 5 1/4 inches by 4 inches. I would say the loaf is double that of the regular Udi bread and the pieces are thick and substantial. I've tried it toasted and plain and both ways are fantastic. Granted, it is more expensive than the 5.00 little wimpy loaf -it is 11.99, but it is the closest thing to bread heaven. I keep it in the freezer and take out the pieces when I want. I won't ever buy the original Udi bread again. I know this is expensive, but it is so delicious.

Too bad that Udi makes this wonderful product only for Jason's. They could corner the market if they had it for sale everywhere. This really is delicious. The slices are uniform, thick and definitely have earned my vote. Yes, 11.99 is alot of money, but darn it, I'm worth it! Try it and you won't ever buy the regular Udi bread.

Buy the way, you can also buy the gluten free deli meat for 8.99 per pound! There is nothing like a hot pastrami sandwich with hot mustard, dill pickle and chips. :wub:

Wow, thanks for sharing that! I had no idea the slices were bigger. I have been meaning to try eating at Jason's Deli but I avoided it because the thought of paying so much for a tiny little sandwhich I can make myself was depressing. I figured the slices were the same size as the store bought Udi's. Now I will have to check out Jason's Deli!

We have zero delis around here (we aren't known for them on the prairies) but man, that sounds delicious! I would be happy to pay $11.99 for bread like that. When I first tried Udi's bread I was quite desperate and liked it, having just been diagnosed, but now it's just meh to me - basically just a vehicle for my toppings. :huh: Cannot wait until our heat wave is over so I can bake some serious bread. :)

So glad you were successful in finding such a treat!

Wow! I live across the street from a Jason's Deli and I've never tried eating there because I figure there is too much gluten in there for it to be safe for me. But maybe I can buy a loaf of bread from them! Cool! Thanks for that tip!

Well I chickened out. We tried to go there about 4 PM yesterday thinking maybe it would not be too busy that early. There was a line out the door however and they had onyl one person on register that looked like she didn't know what she was doing (looked like she was new/being trained). When a guy rushed up front, saw the line, looked frazzled and then ran back to the kitchen yelling that they needed more help up front I decided it was not a good time to wait and see how safe their gluten-free sandwiches are. I felt like a wimp asking my husband to leave but he understood and took me to the grocery store instead. I already had some Rudi's bread at home so we just went and bought lunch meat and veggeis and made out own sandwiches at home. I will still try Jason's Deli sometime however if I can find a day/time to go when they are not super busy. For those that have been there, is this place always super busy like that? I don't mind a small line but the employees looked really stressed out too. It stressed me out too much to want to ask questions about gluten-free bread.

Well, since I'm across the street, I'll answer you. ;)

There are down times, like 2 to 4 when most have already had lunch.

But if there is an event in town...it will be busy all day.

I wish you would of bought a BIG loaf of Udi's bread for your homemade sandwiches! ;)

But I understand completely. I get worried if people are being tained or if the place is rushed too. Please post when you do try Jason's Deli. I know you are super-sensitive and I hope you do alright there.

    • We were in Santorini and Athens in August 2015.   We found eating gluten free easy in Greece.   Their cuisine involves fairly simply ingredients, olive oil, salt, and herbs.   My celiac daughter can eat almost all the grilled meats and vegetables.   Obviously you have to avoid the pita.   Also, be careful of the gyro meat, because some places threw beer in their marinade.   My daughter enjoyed lots of grilled fish, seafood, and meats there. We found the Greeks very friendly and accommodating, when we explained that we have to avoid gluten, the servers knew what that is, and were happy to accommodate us. Airport is different.   I have the habit of calling the airline a couple of week before the flight to make sure they have gluten-free meals for my daughter.   But I always pack backups for long flights.
    • You'll get to the point where you can eat other things, you just have to give it time. Can you do eggs? Hard boiled eggs. They make fast snacks and are highly portable. If you make nut butters, you can just eat it by the spoonful.  I don't like "normal" coconut macaroons, too wet for me, ick! I found this recipe though which drives me insane --- sooooooo good I about swallow my tongue. http://www.foodnetwork.com/recipes/alton-brown/toasty-coconut-macaroons-recipe-1912139 Don't know if you like them or not but re-fried beans. I NEED my carbs!!!!! If I don't get carbs, I will get weak & shaking 30 minutes after eating. I can't eat every 30 minutes!!! So I eat a lot of re-fried beans. I make a big vat & then portion into containers & freeze. If you have or get a stick blender, it will make super fast work of mashing those beans up. Only takes 2 minutes or less. I use olive oil in mine & lots of it -- need that fat. 
    • Coconut, almond butter, and cocoa nib fat bombs...I use plant fats to do it. You can make some great snacks out of fresh almond butter, shredded or coconut flour, and cocoa nibs. Sweeten with stevia for little dough like balls of goodness. Oh you miss potato chips, two options here I like to make my own protein chips with pea protein, or I can have 2-4 protes chips (vegan pea protein  chips made by a company) but they have to be eaten in moderation. Coconut chips....yeah I get Lets' Do Organic ones I can snack on a hand full of them or throw a handful of cocoa nibs in my mouth for snacks. If you like meat, try making jerky. get a dehydrator season your own and just do it.....lucky you can eat meat. I miss making roast in a crock pot....I used to make some of the best shredded meats. My old smoker.....I could make some of the best ribs and roast EVER. The jerky can be made and taken for snacks on the road or while out, crack open a can of spinach (canned unsalted delmonte does not bother me) or pack some stewed greens and have some jerky tear it up stir it in canned keto on the go. Other lovely thing are tuna and salmon if the canned bother you I often find them too salty to enjoy I have taken some and smoked it or dipped it in liquid smoke then cooked in a baking dish then loaded in to the dehydrator. I find doing this I can have that little bit of fish when I want without worry of spoilage (sucking on it and chewing it for a long time make it really satisfying for me) ....SOO doing this next week to try the fish again. Speaking of fish...since I perfected keto bread in my bakery this month......I think I might try making a tuna sandwich with avacado mayo....not had a tuna sandwich in over 5 years.....
    • I am a newly diagnosed celiac and am traveling abroad for the first time since starting the diet. I will be going to Greece in the spring. I was wondering if anyone had any tips for eating gluten free abroad or at airports? Thanks! 
    • Yeah I've wondered a bit if I'm not getting all the other B vitamins from food alone and if they'd do me well. Magnesium content in the keto vitals isn't a lot. I try to get some more through food but I doubt it's optimal. I might have to look into that stuff. Interesting about the meats. Unfortunately I need the fat, especially if I'm gonna continue trying this keto thing for awhile, give it a chance to work. I did know about the difference in omega content, but since starting this diet I've been supplementing with fish oil to offset the omega 6's. Hope you'll be able to eat meat again soon, even if in small amounts. So much this. Every day I want to get up and do anything, and can't and it sucks. I want to climb the walls, get away from myself... Ugh, this takes too long, and I'm too impatient. Yeah, looks like I have to cook everything. I figured I'd at least be able to eat raw baby spinach. I need SOMETHING I can just grab and eat, but it gives me the same slightly itchy mouth that fruit gives me. I've been allergic to fruit forever... Don't have this problem with my steamed broccoli and cauliflower. I already cook everything else I eat. (and it's all organic, real food) So annoying to have to spend half my day cooking, not that I have anything else I can do. But what do I do when (or if) I get healthy again and am like, out somewhere? Damn I miss potato chips. I'll tweak a few things here and there and keep trying.
