7 HEALTHY ALTERNATIVES TO BREAD

7 HEALTHY ALTERNATIVES TO BREAD

There are so many great alternatives to bread, below are a few off my favourites but the list is endless…

ROMAINE LETTUCE

Make a wrap with romaine lettuce. It has a very neutral flavour, so won’t overpower what you put inside. Fill it with alkaline grains, vegetables, sprouts, nut, seeds, avocados or anything else you like.

Collards

Raw collard leaves make the perfect wraps and are a more sturdier option than romaine lettuce. They would make a better option than romaine if you are planning on travelling anywhere with them. They have a stronger, slightly more bitter flavour than romaine.

Nori Sheets

Nori doesn’t just need to be used for sushi, it makes a fantastic wrap option as well that is loaded with minerals and won’t make you feel heavy and bloated like traditional tortillas.

Rice Paper

Rice paper is also another great option for making wraps or the traditional use of spring rolls. Fill them, dip and enjoy!

Portobello Mushrooms

Great raw or roasted in the oven for a few minutes until they’re lightly browned, then use them as hamburger buns. Load them up with vegetables—tomatoes, lettuce, onions, avocado, whatever you’d like and enjoy.

Cauliflower Pizza Crust

If you’re not a mushroom fan, you can make a pizza crust from cauliflower. The process is a little more time consuming, but if you have the time, you can make yourself a delicious gluten-free version of a popular comfort food. Click here for my cauliflower pizza recipe.

Chickpea Pancakes

Chickpea pancakes are one of my favourite bread alternatives as they are filling and have a more similar texture/consistency to bread than the other alternatives. They are quick and easy to make and great topped with salad, hummus and sprouts.
