Trader Joe's Sprouted Bread

So I tried some this week. Almost too good to be true. Now I'm scared. No cravings but it is good bread. Nothing like the other low carb breads I've tried in the past. I've had 2 slices this week. Not on the same day. I think that will be it for the week. For those of you that eat this, how often do you eat it?

I eat it whenever I want with no problems. Did you try the Sprouted Whole Wheat or the Rye? Both are good.

It's more substantial than the enriched lc breads out there but not as dense and heavy as Ezekial plus the price is wayyyy better than the Ezekial. I like it toasted and schmeered with cream cheese with an egg scramble. Keeping my fingers crossed it's a keeper for you.

Thanks Lisa. So far so Good. I tried Healthy Life and Nature's Own Low Carb Breads before and never cared for them. This tastes much better. Still, the one slice satisfied me, I didn't feel like eating multiple slices.

Use it and love it. I try to only use one slice and TRY not to use it everyday. It is good and am trying to get my husband to use it instead of LaBrea, but he thinks it is low carb bread and thus cannot taste good. I am the shopper in the family so I will conveniently let the LaBrea run out and he will have to try it. I hate to buy different things for people especially since this bread is so good and not full of garbage.

TJ's makes wonderful bread. I love their quinoa bread and the sprouted spread, as mentioned. They make wonderful grilled cheese and tomato sandwiches.

I am glad to see there are others who eat grains and can tolerate them. "Grains" has become a dirty word around here.

I use to eat a low carb bread before and I was ok, but I just don't see it around anymore. There were lots more low carb products around in 2004/05 it seems.

Grains are good for you. They should not be avoided for too long, but it's just about the kinds you eat and how often. My staples are oats, quinoa, and whole wheat bread.

Well bread was never really my weakness so I figured I'd be OK with it as long as my appetite stays in control. I've been doing 20 net carbs since I started but been experimenting with more carbs and moving up the rungs. Not in order since there are a lot of things going through the rungs that I don't eat and I don't really care for like fruit or yogurt. The true test will be if and when I try to incorporate rice. That was my real weakness. I don't know how much of a role it will play in my life in the future. And since TJ's does not sell low carb rice, LOL, it might have very little part or no part in my life in the future. I'm OK with that though. For me its all about how much my appetite is kept under control. Anything that messes with that cannot be a part of my life.

I can't remember which it was that I used to get, but it was one of the organic breads they have. I think it had 8 carbs per slice. It was really good. I'll have to get it again. It made great toast. Julie

When I saw this thread my wife and I ran over to Trader Joes to pick up a loaf or two.

I was dissapointed that the bread listed 13 net grams carbs (15-2).
Somehow I was expecting 4-5 net carbs per slice.

We ended up not getting any bread and my hope of a piece of toast with my morning eggs was dashed.

Was I looking at the right bread? Is this the lowest one can expect from bread?

I haven't had any grains since April except for one half ear of corn. I've
kept to 20-25 carb average for the last 3 months and I'm not sure I can afford the extra carbs.

You didn't get the Sprouted Whole Wheat or Rye Bread? It is 4 net carbs. Check out the first post in this thread-there is a picture of it.

I read on another thread that this is not sold on the West Coast. -Seems like almost none of these really low carb bread options are sold here. Even Julian Bakery, which I guess is based out here, doesn't have product that is sold within 20 miles of me.

Yeah thats not the right one. The ones I have are 4 net carbs. Hope you can find it. It really is good.
