LIVING WITHOUT BREAD
"We live in a world dependent on bread, but do you really need it? Here are some great substitutions if you find yourself missing bread.
ROLL UP WITH GREENS: use lettuce, cabbage or cooked collard green leaves. Wrap your favorite sandwich fillings in these instead of using bread
SPRING ROLL WRAPPERS: Spring roll wrappers can be made from rice or tapioca . All you need to do is soak them in water for 45 seconds and you can use them for everything. Roll up nut butters and fruit, veggies and tofu, scrambled eggs or meat and veggies. The wrappers can keep in the refrigerator for a long time, unlike bread.
TOP YOUR HOT CEREAL: Instead of peanut butter on bread, cook your favorite hot cereal and top it off with an allowable nut butter(add sweetners or jelly if desired).
EGGPLANT SANDWICH: Grill slices of eggplant, place a filling of cheese, tomato, lettuce or other allowable veggies, tofu between 2 slices of the grilled eggplant. For more protein add dip the eggplant in egg and allowable flour before grilling.
ZUCCHINI ROLL UPS: Thinly slices zucchini, place small amounts of cheese, sandwich filling in one end and roll up. Secure with a toothpick until ready to eat.
