I don’t have any major food allergies- I mean, there’s a very great chance that I might have undiagnosed lactose intolerance, but that has yet to stop me from eating cheese like it’s going out of style. And while I don’t have any (known) gluten allergies, reducing the amount of gluten in one’s diet has a number of health benefits, including better digestion.
Udi’s started making gluten-free products after their master baker was asked by a friend with celiac disease to come up with a new recipe for gluten-free bread. He ended up developing Udi’s “secret” recipe, and the rest is history.
In my opinion, this bread stands above other gluten-free breads I’ve tried. It’s a little mealy, but not too mealy, and it has a delicious bite as well as a really mellow flavor. I tried the original recipe, and I think it’s really good for every day sandwiches and toast. However, be aware that gluten-free does not mean THE HEALTHIEST FOOD IN THE WORLD OMG- I mean, it’s still bread. And the last time I checked, bread is a carbohydrate. That means two slices of Udi’s Gluten Free White Sandwich Bread is 4 WWpoints+. Basically, as long as you don’t eat the entire loaf in one sitting, I think eating Udi’s bread is perfectly fine for a Weight Watcher.
For lunch, I ate my Udi’s in a sandwich made with a Boca Chik’n Patty, lettuce, mustard, and an egg white (look, don’t act surprised- I said I like eggs). The whole thing was 8 WWpoints+.
Tonight my brother and I are having our first WW meeting together. Since we’re both doing WW online, we’ve decided to meet up once a week and have our own version of a WW meeting. I think it’ll be a great way for us to spend a little more time together, and support each other.
Do you have any unconventional support systems? Also, how do you feel about gluten-free diets?
