5 Healthy Alternatives to Conventional Wheat Bread


In this video we’re looking at some convenient and healthy alternatives to bread. There are recipe links in the description below.

1. Ezekiel Bread

Ezekiel bread is a really healthy bread made with several types of sprouted grains and legumes.

The grains are allowed to sprout before processing, which makes the end product much more nutritious and easily digestible.

It also contains no added sugar, but it does still contain gluten. So if you are sensitive to gluten, Ezekiel bread is not the best option for you.

2. Oopsie Bread

Oopsie bread is one of the simplest and most popular low-carb breads.

It can be made from only eggs, cream cheese and salt, although some recipes add more ingredients.

It’s quite easy to make, and delicious as a bun for burgers or served with toppings like you would toast.

3. Rye Bread

This bread is made from rye, a type of grain that is related to wheat.

It is darker and denser than regular bread, as well as much higher in fiber. But this also gives it a stronger, more unique flavor that may be an acquired taste.

Some rye breads are a mixed blend of rye and wheat, so they are a little lighter and have a mild, sweet flavor. But keep in mind that rye bread still contains some gluten.

4. Corn Tortillas

Tortillas can be made with either wheat or corn, but corn tortillas are higher in fiber and gluten-free, making them a great option for people who are sensitive to gluten.

You can use corn tortillas in sandwiches, wraps, burgers, pizzas or simply with toppings like vegetables and cheese.

It’s also easy to make corn tortillas yourself because they contain only two ingredients: water and a Mexican flour called Masa.

5. Lettuce and Leafy Greens

Big-leafed greens like iceberg lettuce or romaine lettuce are also a great substitute for bread or wraps.

The large leaf can be used as a wrap to hold everything together, while you fill it with toppings like meat or veggies. They are extremely fresh and dramatically lower in calories than bread-based wraps.

Now if you want to try make any of these wheat bread alternatives, you can find links to a bunch of different recipes in the video description.

As you can see there are tasty and nutritious alternatives to regular wheat bread.

Making the change shouldn’t be difficult, but it will probably be a bit more time consuming at first.

So experiment with these and find the one you enjoy eating and that fits into your lifestyle.
