Unfortunately, when following a fat fueled and gluten/grain free lifestyle, regular bread and baked goods are off limits 🙅🏻♀️
Luckily, there are some super tasty alternatives out there that make it feel like we aren’t missing out on 🥖. 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 🌮🌯🍕🍔🥖
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 😍 or our homemade cranberry sauce!
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 🥑🍞🥓
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 🥑🌮
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 wouldn’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 I’m a fan of the coconut bread! They also sell yummy granolas😍
Out of all the breads, I think this one would be best suited to make a French toast with!
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 you’re in the mood for a pizza, they have a keto and a regular line that are both low carb 🍕 we buy the regular naked crust since it’s dairy free!
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 🍝
The rice version can be used to make a rice pudding or used in a stir fry/fried rice dish 🍚
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 🥕🥒
Popular brands are “Palmini” (heart of palm pasta) and “Veggie Noodle Co” (they make zoodles and also riced cauliflower)
