    Hi Simon84
    That amount of carbs per slice would mean I can introduce bread back into my diet. I've missed a slice of toast with some peanut butter on. Found a great specialist UK website that stocks organic foods like Chia seeds, Pure Stevia, superfoods, nuts etc. The organic peanut butter is yummy & has no added Palm oil, sugar, salt. or other unwanted nasties. www.beleafinnature.co.uk The pure Stevia is particularly good & I use it to sweeten hot drinks, natural yoghurt & the likes. The prices are spot on too, as is the quality. I've learnt sooooo much since I was diagnosed a month ago, especially from the amazingly knowledgeable members on here. I've never eaten so healthily...which is the moral of the story I expect. Should have ALWAYS eaten well & taken better care of myself. Ain't hindsight a wonderful thing. Anyway, thanks for answering my question hun. I'll be off to Waitrose tomorrow.
    Ali. :)

    Hi,

    I am sure that you know by now that Waitrose doesn't sell them in all shops but Ocado does. Also, Lidl has now a protein roll which tastes much better and it has even less carbs. I hope it helps!

    I tried quite a few low carb breads but didn't think any of them were worthwhile in terms of taste and satisfaction. However, the LIDL high-protein rolls are my go to when I want a bit of toast or bread. Because they are so filling, I only eat a half roll a day but I know some members on here are able to eat a whole one.

    Try them if you can.

    Sad to say, try as I might, I can only manage a quarter of a Lidl roll toasted with butter! Fills me up for at least a couple of hours!

    Apologies if someone has already posted this, but Ocado is stocking this bread. Just ordered some as I'm keen to try it.
