How to Give Up Bread

Giving up bread to try and get healthier? Here are 5 alternatives to using bread.

Deconstructed sandwich in a salad form

Rather than layering all your sandwich ingredients on bread, simply toss them into a bowl and cover with a dressing. As a bonus, this gives you the space to add in more greens.

Toasted sliced sweet potato

Thinly slice a sweet potato lengthwise to about ⅓-½ inch thickness, and put in the toaster until pliable. Use in place of bread, buns, or toast.

Rice cakes

Using rice cakes in place of bread makes for a light lunch or a great snack. Simply layer with toppings like turkey slices and avocado, or peanut butter and apple slices.

Lettuce wraps

Use lettuce wraps in place of tortillas, sandwich wraps, or even hamburger buns for added nutrition.

Rice paper

Use rice paper to wrap up sandwich goodies like turkey slices, lettuce, and tomatoes.
