On Slimming World we are used to not eating too much bread but many of us fit a slice or two into our Food Optimising each week. What gluten-free bread can we have on Slimming World? Of course we can have any bread and count it as syns but it’s much better to use a ‘b’ option and save the syns for something nicer (wine, chocolate, both…)
I personally like Schar’s bread rolls. They last a few months unopened and once opened last for about a week. Currently there are 4 in a pack for £2 from Tesco’s. Each 50g roll counts as a ‘b’ option.
Bfree do a wide range of products including wraps which are really tasty (£3.50 a pack at Tesco’s). I like the wraps lightly fried to eat instead of chapatis. ‘b’ options: 1 x 55g Stone Baked Pitta Bread, 2 slices Brown Seeded Loaf (from 400g loaf), 1 x 60g Soft White Roll or 1 x 42g Multigrain Wrap.
You can have 2 slices of Genius Brown Bread (from 350g loaf) or 1 slice of Genius Triple Seeded Bread (from 560g loaf).
Glutafin also have a wide range and the following count as healthy ‘b’ options: 1 x 50g part-baked white roll, 2 slices of white bread (from 400g loaf), 5 High Fibre crackers or 1 slice of seeded bread (from 400g loaf).
As a general rule you may also have 2 x medium slices of gluten-free wholemeal or multigrain bread as your ‘b’ option.
Fancy a sandwich? You might like Slimming World & Gluten-free Steak Sandwich.
