Diabetes Self-Management Blog

For many people with diabetes who are trying to change the amount or type of carbohydrate in their diet, bread is one of the hardest foods to cut back on. This week at MyDiabetesCentral.com, David Mendosa writes about substitutes for sandwich bread that are either lower in carbohydrate or have a lower glycemic index.

Because he is on a very-low-carbohydrate diet, Mendosa recommends — after rejecting lettuce as a poor substitute for bread — Sushi Party Soy Wrappers, made by the Japanese tea company Yamamotoyama and available online or at many Asian markets. Most varieties are kosher and/or gluten free and have 1-2 grams of carbohydrate per sheet. They may not satisfy a bread craving, but according to Mendosa, they are a great way to enjoy a sausage without the bun.

If you’ve been cutting down on bread, what’s your favorite substitute?
