    Are there any non-healthy type breads that are low carb. I am thinking light fluffy "plastic" white bread in the similar to Slimcea for those of you old enough to remember! :)

    Carbzone tortillas fit the bill. Stodge wise if not sliced bread like. I bet they're good with a curry too.

    How sad I've answered myself!

    :arghh: Went to Lidl yesterday for some rolls and there was not even a space where they should be. Asked at the till and was told they 'have some new ranges for Easter but haven't been told they have been discontinued' :bigtears:

    The LivLife stuff isn’t bad, 3.8g a slice. Satisfied my need for sardine toasties (drenched in butter) and a marmite sandwich (quite a bit of butter there too) this week... with the fat I didn’t need to inject, same as with the Lidl rolls.

    I like LivLife , it's lovely and filling but I don't digest it well. Every now and then I need a low residue diet and so need white "plastic" non fibrous bread.

    Just phoned Lidi customer services, and was told they have discontinued their high protein rolls. They are trying to get a new supply, but at the moment none of their stores have them. They will put a message on Facebook when they have a new supplier. I am gutted, love them for my breakfast.

    Thanks for this info. I don't have facebook so just got my husband to follow Lidl on my behalf!
    I obsessively checked all the Lidls within 20 miles of me. Have about 20 in the freezer but that won't last forever.
    I've started making fathead dough rolls for breakfast. They have mozarella, cheddar cheese, egg, almond flour, oat fibre and bicarbonate of soda. Take about 10 mins to make and 15 to bake. Very low carb. Currently baking a different loaf recipe in my new bread maker.
    I'm sure you have had these recommendations already but I've been surprised by how good alternatives taste and how easy they are to make. There is hope!

    Sorry the site won't let me link the Change.org page :( Please search for Change.org - Stop Lidl discontinuing Protein Rolls

    Doesn't make any sense to me. They were supposed to be quite popular.
