Bread may not be ideal for losing weight. But the reality is, you’re probably going to have a sandwich every now and then, and whether it be Azekial non-gluten flour-less bread or mini-thins you keep in the freezer, you might as well have an excellent one in terms of convenience, taste and nutritional value.
I advocate the designated one-main-meal-a-day of The Gault Diet, along with many smaller mini-meals. But I don’t always follow my own advice. I eat with my clients, and if I have several clients I happen to be feeding that day, I’ll eat many meals and often. You can eat much more and not gain weight if the quality of the food is high.
The mini-thins are about the size of a hockey puck, but thinner. I’ll throw one or two frozen mini-thins into the oven at 350 for five minutes or until the bread is thawed and heated up. I fillet open the seam and spread coconut oil like butter over one side, and chop up a couple of fresh garlic cloves and sprinkle that on.
Whenever possible, get the raw in there. If not garlic, chop up onion finely. Also thin slices of cucumber, sweet pepper. A slice of soy cheese if you like. Mash a quarter of avocado and smear it over the other piece of bread like peanut butter. Avocado makes anything taste good.
That’s all you need for a tasty, semi-raw sandwich. Or fry up sliced mushroom, firm tofu, or eggplant with tumeric and throw that into your sandwich. Other options for a spread are tahini, soya sour cream. Pickles, banana peppers. Cut the sandwich in half for easy handling.
And don’t forget your friends. Breaking bread together and sharing food is good karma.
