8 healthy and delicious bread alternatives

Published:

Bread has been a staple food for humans for decades. It is a key component of many meals and people’s diets. When a person is trying to lose weight, many diets found online suggest they should avoid bread completely for best results. Chicago’s best weight loss expert suggests differently – to use healthy and nutritious alternatives.

8 best alternatives of Slice Bread

  • Corn tortillas
  • Ezekiel bread
  • Rye bread
  • Oopsie bread
  • Pumpkin bread
  • Paleo bread
  • Sourdough bread
  • Multigrain bread
  1. Corn tortillas

Tortillas can be made with wheat or corn. Corn tortillas are gluten-free yet high in fiber. They are a great option for someone who is sensitive to gluten. You can use them in wraps, burgers, pizzas, or sandwiches. You can find them in any store or make them on your own – they are easy to make.

  1. Ezekiel bread

This type of bread is maybe the healthiest bread available. It’s made with different types of sprouted grains and legumes, such as wheat, millet, barley, spelt, soybeans, and lentils. A single slice of Ezekiel bread contains around 15g of carbohydrates so a person on a low-carb diet can incorporate it.

  1. Rye bread

A type of grain that is related to wheat is rye. This grain is darker, densier, and much higher in fiber. Rye bread is mostly made with a mixture of rye and wheat so they are lighter and have a mild flavor. If you’re thinking of using this alternative then keep in mind that rye bread contains some gluten; it is not a good alternative for a gluten-free diet.

  1. Oopsie bread

Oopsie bread or cloud bread is one of the most popular low-carb bread. It is very simple to make; you need eggs, cream cheese, and salt. With this said cloud bread is a great protein-rich alternative to regular bread. These are only the main ingredients, there are many different recipes available online. The recipe is versatile and this simple alternative is also great 

This bread is widely used as a replacement for wheat bread. It is delicious as a bun for burgers or served with toppings. 

  1. Pumpkin bread

This bread gets a lot of attention in the pumpkin season even though canned pumpkin is available throughout the whole year and works just as well. Pumpkin bread is made by mixing pumpkin with eggs, whole wheat flour, and a bunch of warming spices like nutmeg and cinnamon. 

  1. Paleo bread

Being paleo or gluten-free makes homemade bread baking a bit tough. But luckily it can be found in many bakeries. It is a combination of coconut flour, almond flour, and ground flaxseeds to mimic the taste and texture of regular flour. 

  1. Sourdough bread

Bread made with homemade leaven is much better for your stomach and gut. Sourdough bread is made from fermented grains. That fermentation process reduces anti-nutrients from the grains increasing the availability of nutrients. This doesn’t make sourdough bread gluten-free but it makes this type of bread easier to digest. It tastes a little more sour than regular bread so it’s not up to everyone’s taste. You can make it at home, but even though the process isn’t hard it takes a lot of time and a starter culture to work with. 

  1. Multigrain bread

Multigrain bread is healthier than plain white bread because it contains a mix of different grains so you’ll be getting a wider range of nutrients. This type of bread is a mix of whole wheat flour, all-purpose flour, rolled oats, chia seeds, and sunflower seeds. With a bite of this bread, you’ll get a food serving of fiber even without topping it with anything. 

Using these bread alternatives will keep your meals well-rounded. You can always use vegetables to replace them, but nutrition-wise these alternatives are great options for many diets. 

Homemade bread is definitely most enjoyed and of course better than an industrial one. Get your hands dirty and start kneading.
