Healthy Baked Good and Pasta Swaps ๐Ÿฅ–

Unfortunately, when following a fat fueled and gluten/grain free lifestyle, regular bread and baked goods are off limits ๐Ÿ™…๐Ÿปโ€โ™€๏ธ

Luckily, there are some super tasty alternatives out there that make it feel like we arenโ€™t missing out on ๐Ÿฅ–. Here I will be sharing some of your favorite brands and products!

UnBun: Unbun products are amazing and probably the favorite in our house! They make everything from toast to bagels and baguettes, pizza crusts and burger buns! They also make tortillas so taco and burger night can still happen ๐ŸŒฎ๐ŸŒฏ๐Ÿ•๐Ÿ”๐Ÿฅ–

The toast tastes good both sweet and savory but my personal favorite is to eat it with butter or ghee and a generous wallop of keto chocolate nut butter ๐Ÿ˜ or our homemade cranberry sauce!

We love a good lox bagel using Unbun ๐Ÿฅฏ

Base Culture: we love the classic keto (red package) and nuts and seed (green packaged) toasts! These can also be eaten sweet or savory but we prefer them savory with liverwurst or prosciutto and butter! Or of course as an avocado toast ๐Ÿฅ‘๐Ÿž๐Ÿฅ“

Base Culture Paleo Bread as an avocado toast!

Siete Foods: the almond flour tortillas are our go-to for fish or pulled turkey tacos with plenty of keto Mayo (we love Chosen Foods) and Guac ๐Ÿฅ‘๐ŸŒฎ

The best way to enjoy them is to heat them up in the oven or with ghee in a pan. They are a bit crumbly so I wouldnโ€™t use them to make a burrito!

Julian Bakery: this company has a wide variety of low carb and grain free breads and wraps. My mom really likes the paleo wraps and Iโ€™m a fan of the coconut bread! They also sell yummy granolas๐Ÿ˜

Out of all the breads, I think this one would be best suited to make a French toast with!

I love to eat the paleo Coconut Bread with foods that are a bit more juicy such as tomato, butter, or tuna/chicken salad since the bread is fairly absorbent. It also tastes fabulous buttered and dipped in soup ๐Ÿœ

Cappellos: this company has a pasta and pizza line that is grain free and based off of almond flour. The spaghetti, lasagna and fettuccini pasta are suitable for a fat fueled approach, while the gnocchi and cookie dough unfortunately are too starchy.

If youโ€™re in the mood for a pizza, they have a keto and a regular line that are both low carb ๐Ÿ• we buy the regular naked crust since itโ€™s dairy free!

Naked pizza crusts make it super easy to make a healthy customized pizza. For those who are not sensitive to dairy, Cappellos also sells pre-topped pizzas ๐Ÿ•
The almond flour lasagna noodles work great! Click here to see the recipe!

Miracle Noodle: these noodles come in many fun shapes (even as rice) and are made with konjac flour which is an ocean plant that is high in fiber and helps bind to toxins in the gut! They can be a bit smelly so I always rinse them before I use them, then I simply heat them up in a pan with ghee and add them to whatever dish I want to eat them with. They are fairly neutral in taste so they go with many different sauces, but their texture is pretty similar to that of pasta.

They can be enjoyed with Gulasch, Pork and Beef Mince, Bolognese Sauce or with any other pasta dish ๐Ÿ

The rice version can be used to make a rice pudding or used in a stir fry/fried rice dish ๐Ÿš

Miracle noodles can easily be integrated into your favorite pasta dishes! Check out my super simple tuna pasta here ๐Ÿ 

Veggie Noodles/Rice: you can easily make your own vegetable noodles out of zucchini, carrot, cucumber or heart of palm using a spiralizer! They are also sold pre-made in many grocery stores either frozen or in the produce aisle! I prefer to make my own since we can make as much as we need and avoid them spoiling ๐Ÿฅ•๐Ÿฅ’

Riced broccoli and cauliflower also make a great alternative to rice in stir fries or to go along with the my Pork and Beef Mince

Popular brands are โ€œPalminiโ€ (heart of palm pasta) and โ€œVeggie Noodle Coโ€ (they make zoodles and also riced cauliflower)
