Welcome, low carb travelers.
Today’s recipe is brought to you by the number zero. That’s how many net carbs there are in a slice of this low carb bread that I just found. It’s called ThinSlim Zero Carb Bread and it is simply a delight.
What makes this bread zero net carb is that each slice has 7g carbs and 7g fiber and as we all know, seven minus seven equals zero. Zilch. Nada.
But just as a reminder, net carbs are the carbs that your body processes and uses for energy. Fiber isn’t counted in the net carb count because it passes through your digestive system without breaking down. So your body processes this bread very slowly, without any spikes in blood sugar.
And I probably should have led with this, but this bread tastes really good.
You are not going to mistake it for a slice of Wonder Bread, but it truly is quite good. And so for today’s recipe, I decided to go for pure bread-based comfort food. I made a low carb French toast breakfast casserole that is very similar to one that my Mom makes every Christmas morning. Only this one has just 1g net carbs per serving.
It’s a Christmas miracle!Print
