    I have been trying to avoid the bread and cake aisle in Tesco because of the smell but a crow has made me buy bread. The crow bangs on the back door or window and I have found it easier to throw bread out to keep her quiet. She started the noise about two weeks ago so I bought some Tesco cheap bread for her.

    I was surprised at the sweet smell that remained on my hands after throwing a few slices out the back door. I have to wash my hands each time I handle it. It's funny that when I used to eat bread I never noticed it.

    I can cope with most of the aisles including the bread one - BUT the fruit aisle drives me crazy! :crazy: I miss my fruit so much I used to eat loads of fruit and even though I still eat all fruit in small portions It is the only thing I crave for - it's pretty hard to avoid too as by nature it's always next to the veg!!

    I dont even bother going down certain aisles in the supermarket, I look at a loaf of bread ans immediately see a mental image of double figures on my bg meter.

    I bake all our breads, low carb of course, google Dukan bread recipe, look at the oatbran recipe in the low carb recipe section, I find Scandinavians are way ahead when it comes to low carb foods and recipes, scan through the pics, let me know if you need me to translate.

    Do your own baking, breads and cakes and you will know what you are eating, you will keep good bg numbers and fresh bakery aromas will fill your house :D :D

    Or a hamster house? They love making a home for themselves in a loaf given an opportunity.
    So Tesco have stopped their finest seeded batch?
    I couldn't find it either the other day.
    We got the Warburtons seeded batch instead but it's not as nice.
    Olive rolls and walnut rolls in the pick n mix bit are very tempting and taste sooo good with willow softer butter.

    I noticed the same thing too after buying some kingsmill white that had been reduced that I fed to the swans on the river...It's a bit like when you give up smoking...You can smell a smoker a mile off!

    Just to give you all a giggle on this grey Friday... White rabbits...

    I am writing from my office...in a Bakery...and the aroma of breads is wafting through the offices...its oh so good...and rich, warm comforting...later it will be a small army of gingerbread men....

    Thats how you give directions to the Bakery..if you can smell the bread...it travels some distance...you are close.

    I live within smelling distance too...so it can be all day, everyday...

    The funny bit...I am both Coeliac and diabetic....and dont touch/take a knife & butter to any of it.... :crazy: :lol:

    Have a good weekend..

    Apricot.

    I was shopping in Tesco's last night and they now do a Super Multiseed Farmhouse in the Finest Range, I bought one and it's in the freezer as I'm only half way through my current loaf, I'll let you know what I think :thumbup:

    Snap Apricot, I'm Coeliac and diabetic too, I used to work in supermarket bakery many years ago, had diabetes ( type 1) but not Coeliac then.

    When I make my DD sandwiches or make her some toast, the smell of the bread is wonderful and has me drooling, I do miss it so much. Tapioca, rice and potato 'bread' is what I eat now, but only in small amounts as Free from foods are quite high in Carbs and honestly, it doesn't taste that great :(
