While the ketogenic diet allows us to eat all the cheesy, bacony foods we like, it’s really hard to find a decent substitute for carbs when the craving strikes. We can make gluten-free cheese and cauliflower ‘breadsticks’ to our heart’s delight, but they ain’t got nothing on sliced bread.
Although there are a few store-bought ketogenic breads available, most people usually make their own. Quite frankly, most of the pre-madeoptions out there are pretty sad.
But wait, not so fast. We recently discovered a company called Uprising Food, which sells gourmet loaves of ketogenic sliced bread. Made by artisanal bakers in wood-fired ovens on a farm outside of Cincinnati, the grain-free bread includes superfood ingredients like almond flour, golden flax seeds and apple cider vinegar. Read: zero artificial preservatives or garbage. And did we mention that each slice has 2 net carbs and is gluten-free and paleo-friendly?
Yep, it’s got all of the buzzwords going for it, but what really sells us is the flavor. While competitors often have a strange chewy texture, this bread is crisp and tastes like a rustic country loaf. It looks like normal bread. It toasts like normal bread. It tastes like normal bread. It truly has us fooled and wanting more.
