Check out this killer sandwich I just made.
Just your classic ham and cheese, no biggie there.
But take a close look at the bread. It looks legit, right? Crusty on the outside and chewy on the inside.
Well. This bread only has 4 grams of carb per slice. True.
I made it using a low carb seed cracker that Trader Joe makes called Whole Grain Crispbread. I ground the crackers into meal and then used it to make a bread dough.
I guess you could call this a Trader Joe Hack, although I have mixed feelings about using the word “hack” to describe something so delicious. But let’s just roll with it for now.
Here’s how to hack yourself some low carb bread.
