Something I have to clarify about being gluten free - it's a lifestyle change. It's NOT a diet. Many gluten free products are loaded in carbs or are high in weight watchers points. For the most part, I don't really eat products that say "gluten free" as part of their branding. I eat more clean. Meats. Proteins. Veggies. Fruits. Etc..... every once in a while we will have some gluten free pasta.
One thing I truly miss though is having a good sandwich. A comfort food of mine is toast with a few spritz's of spray butter and jelly. Recently, I discovered Schar gluten free classic white bread. I would have never ever even tried the stuff had it not been for a random stranger suggesting it to me when we were grocery shopping at a different Giant grocery store (our Giant doesn't have this....yet). Anywhoo - we bought it and we LOVE it. First of all, it does NOT taste like cardboard. Secondly, there's no weird flour like aftertaste that I have discovered with some gluten free products. It's amazing. Whether to have solo, or to make a sandwich with.... or even toast.
I give this product an A+
In fact, I like it so much that I just bought it online in bulk to freeze.
Easter is coming and now I'll be able to have an actual egg salad sandwich for a treat!
