Finally! A GREAT tasting bread off the shelf.

Have you guys tried the "Sprouted Wheat" bread from Trader Joes?

It is being marketed as a healthy whole grain bread, and not as a low carb bread, but it only contains 4 net carbs! (7 - 3 fiber)

This stuff is very very yummy! (And I don't typically like the whole grain stuff because they are usually a little dry for my taste)

I had one slice yesterday with breakfast with a ton of butter, and was still down 2.5 today (although I was due for a good loss anyway).

You will LOVE this bread!!! But if you don't for ANY reason, Trader Joes will be happy to refund you, as many of you know what a great return policy they have.

So I was down 2.5 today, and this is what I had yesterday:


Breakfast - Trader Joes bread with a TON of butter!
Find your local Trader Joes here: Welcome to Trader Joe's - Your Neighborhood Grocery Store - Locations



Lunch - Broiled Skillet Pizza, only 283 calories and YUMMY !
Find the recipe here: http://www.lowcarbfriends.com/bbs/lo...-calories.html



Snack - Almond Chocolate Chunk Pecan Cookie!
Cookie recipe here (Post #25): http://www.lowcarbfriends.com/bbs/lo...-calories.html



Dinner - 1/2 dozen Chicken wings
Cook wings for 1 hour at 425. Mix 2 parts Red Hot and 1 part butter. Baste, and cook for another 20 minutes.


Oh yeah, my favorite part.......NO HUNGER, and NO EXERCISE!!!

I'll have to look at that bread next time I go. I always buy Ezekiel Bread there, which we love, but it works out to about 11 carbs net per slice - not too bad because we're in maintenance, but hey, if I can find something comparable in taste/ingredients for less carbs - I'm willing to try it!

Your menu looks good except - where the heck are your VEGGIES, guy?!!

I think I will pick that up next time I go shopping! DH doesn’t love the Ezekial and I am trying to keep his carbs healthy. No bread for me but maybe he will like it? Thanks!

This bread was a staple for me when I was following SBD. It's only $2.19 here in No. Il and is way softer than the Ezekial breads.

Charski....didn't you see the mushrooms

cjack1....the cookie recipe link is right above the cookie picture. As far as looking for a new home, a change of scenery is always nice

Everybody....on the cookie recipe, I can not stress this enough.....just bake a few cookies, and allow to cool. THEN, taste and tweak to your own tastes. Add more cinnamon if you think it needs it, add more nuts, add more chocolate, more oil, etc. Get the idea? There is no need to have an entire batch of cookies ruined because of one little thing that could have been changed before baking :-)

Bobo

Darn it ... we don't have a Trader Joe's either.

But, I do use Ezekiel and LOVE it. It's just higher in carbs.

Oh and to the board. Thanks for sharing your discoveries and recipes! Looking forward to seeing more.

Trader Joe' Sprouted Wheat Bread

Hey you,

I literally flew my car up the hill to Trader's. I looked at every loaf
of bread on their shelves and none of them had anything like low
carb. The sprouted wheats were all 15 carbs less 3 for fiber.
They had all kinds for me to look at. I was so sad. Well you are
one blessed guy to have found this bread. Occasionally I have an
Ezekial bread sliced and toasted. Next time I go there, I shall
give them your information and see if they can order it.

Can you give me the nutritionals from the bag? That would help
me find it.

Thanks

Hi Barbo,

Here is the label, and a few pics below to help you find it, or show the manager what you are looking for. I bought mine in Columbus, OH.

60 calories
1 gram fat
7 grams carb (minus 3 fiber = 4)
5 grams protein

We know that carbs and proteins account for 4 calories each, and fat for 9. So:
(1) gram fat....... X (9) calories = 9 total calories
(7) grams carb.... X (4) calories = 28 total calories
(5) grams protein. X (4) calories = 20 total calories

That a total of 57 out of 60 calories accounted for, not bad!

By the way, I also weigh daily. I have had this bread every day this week, and it has not affected my rate of loss.

Congrats on your incredible loss! Only 9 pounds to go....whoo hoo!

Bobo

Has anyone found this bread in Northern California?? I've looked at two TJ's so far, and they are telling me that it may not be available in our region. There is a sprouted wheat, but it has 90 calories and 11 carbs per slice

I am extremely jealous of everyone who gets to shop at Trader Joe's and Whole Foods! I was so not meant to live in a town without these 2 stores!

One thing that stands out for me in looking at that bread label is that there is NO SOY! Bread without soy is pretty much nonexistent. That is very, very cool!

My only hope is that every once in a great while we take a weekend trip to Nashville which is about 2.5 hours away. They are building a new Trader Joe's in Nashville. If they sell it, I'd be able to buy several loaves and put them in the freezer when I get home. I'll definitely be looking for it. Thanks for posting about it bobo!

I bought a loaf of the Sprouted Wheat Bread and Sprouted 7 Grain Bread. It has the same carb count. It is really hard to believe this bread is LC. Both are really good. Thanks for the heads up about this bread bobo. I don't even look at bread labels any more, so I'm sure I've passed it up before.

I hope this bread isn't too good to be true, but Trader Joe's seems to try to maintain integrity in their labeling.

We have 2 Trader Joe's within 15 minutes of home but neither one carries this particular bread so don't feel TOO badly! Apparently they are quite regionalized with what they carry.

Thankfully they DO carry my fave, Ezekiel bread - which is sprouted grains ONLY, no flour, no honey, no sweeteners. (The bread that Bobo posted has all the above.) It's higher in carbs but worth it to me.

Charski - At least you still get to shop at Trader Joe's and I'm sure you have Whole Foods nearby also since you are in California. I still feel "too badly"!

I can get Ezekiel bread at the health store but I really, really would love a bread with NO SOY!

Well girl - you need to MOVE!

It's really pretty amazing that in this little town we DO have those nice places.

I'd like to do "no soy" too but I make rare exceptions - for Trader Joe's Flax Chips and Ezekiel Bread!

Wow!! 7-Grain and Rye, too!!

WOW!! Bobo, thank you sooo much! I tried the Trader Joe's Sprouted Wheat Bread today, and it is wonderful!! I'm a big fan of 100% stone ground wheat bread, and this is a good substitute!

Two of my local TJs (Batavia, IL and Downers Grove, IL) also have Sprouted 7-Grain and Sprouted Rye breads, with the same carb countl!! Plus, it's only $2.19 per loaf, cheaper than the "puffy" low carb bread you buy in the supermarket.

I'm hoping the 4 g net carbs is accurate. The package says it's made from 100% sprouted grain, and that the sprouting reduces the carb count. It's great!!

I also picked up their canned Marinara sauce, which you used on your pizza. At 4g for half a cup, it's the lowest carb count I've seen (less than plain tomato sauce, even Trader Joe's brand tomato sauce.) Unfortunately, the smallest size they had was 28 oz., which is probably a 6-month supply for me. But, I will freeze the leftovers!!

Joni.............I am glad you found the bread! I am sure you will find it as tasty as I did

Pleeeeaaaaase be sure to moniter your weight loss at the end of the week, and make sure that this bread does not stall you at all !

I did get away with it, but I have a pretty active lifestyle, and I am a man

Hopefully the bread will help keep you feeling more satisfied, and less deprived

Congratulations on your loss, and we would all like to see you make your goal!!!
