Beautiful, right? 🙂 Mmmmm…
This is a low carb bread, of course – only 1 net carb per slice.
I ordered a few more products from The Great Low Carb Bread Company, since I love their Everything Bagels SO much!! I would just stick with the bagels probably, but several people asked about the bread and the hamburger buns, so I decided to test them out so I could report in…
I ordered from Netrition of course (the best prices).
Here’s what I got:
- Low Carb “Everything Bread” (2 loaves)
- Low Carb Hamburger Buns
- Bob’s Red Mill Almond Meal/Flour
- “Just The Cheese” Crunchy Chips
- Speed Jump Rope (free)
FYI, when you order the bread or buns at the links above, they’ll ask if you want thermal packaging (ice packs) and/or faster shipping. I don’t get either of those. I simply use the regular flat rate shipping – and my bread arrives just fine. Yes, even in the heat here in the south lately. I ordered the thermal packaging the first time for an extra $3.99, but honestly – I couldn’t tell a difference in the bread.
Here’s what the Everything Bread looks like up close:
While I really like the Everything Bagels, I decided to try the loaf bread because with a bagel… things fall through the hole. 😛 lol. Like mayonnaise, and tuna salad, peanut butter and Sugar Free Mountain Berry Preserves (my favorite!!), and anything else you try to stuff in a bagel. 🙂
I’ve tried the loaf bread three different times so far this week. The grilled cheese was by far the BEST! I used a full tablespoon of real butter on each side, stuffed it with colby jack cheese, and browned it up real nice. YUM! I also had toast one morning with my coffee, and another sandwich – but the grilled cheese was definitely tops. 🙂
That may be because my other sandwich was kinda weird. lol. You can see it below. I had leftover roasted brussel sprouts and this loaf of bread, so I thought… why not? Heh. Yes, a toasted roasted brussel sprout sandwich:
It was actually pretty good, believe it or not. The brussel sprouts were roasted in olive oil, with salt & garlic salt. I just heated them up, toasted the bread, added mayo – and called it lunch.
On the side, that’s the “Just The Cheese” White Cheddar Baked Cheese Chips.
They’re pretty good! I really like the CRUNCH. In fact, I ended up putting them ON my sandwich. 🙂 I usually make my own cheese chips, but I decided to try these bagged “chips” out to see if they’re good for a convenience food (when I’m traveling, going out on the boat, or packing a lunch). I like them…
Next test: The Low Carb Hamburger Buns
This is not where I even miss bread, but several people asked about the low carb hamburger buns so I decided to test them out. I actually love a plate of just “meat & greens”. I’ve gotten so used to that, that this really felt like too much food for me. Because I also roasted the brussel sprouts that night and had those on the side:
It’s just a big fat juicy burger with a dash of seasoning, a slice of Borden Natural Cheddar Cheese and some mayo. And a dill pickle. You could stack it mile high with lettuce and all sorts of fun stuff of course, but I decided to keep it simple.
It was good. Would I buy the buns regularly? Probably not. But that’s because I don’t miss bread, not with a plate of meat & greens anyway (like hamburger steak & veggies). I do like the low carb bagels and loaf bread – mostly for something easy to grab in the morning, or for a quick lunch. And that grilled cheese – wowsa! – mmm. I’m having a food flashback. 🙂 🙂 Yes, that was GOOD. Very good.
If you miss a big burger on a bun, these are definitely the buns to get. They’re only 2 net carbs per bun. They’re not huge, but they aren’t small. Just about right really. Unlike regular bread they are quite dense – so very filling. That also means they don’t soak up the juices and get all soggy like regular bread & buns too, which is nice.
I’ll leave you with another shot of that beautiful grilled cheese sandwich. This definitely won me over on the Everything Bread, lol:
That grilled cheese was VERY filling! And only 3-4 net carbs, depending on your cheese.
