8 Healthy Gluten & Grain-Free Alternatives to Bread

Whether you are Paleo, Whole 30, cutting back or just plain gluten-free, one of the first questions people ask is “What am I going to eat?”. Then the follow up question is, “What about bread”?

I mean, what kind of evil person cuts bread out of their life anyway? As you read these very words, you probably think that you will be swallowed into a black hole, asphyxiate and die at the thought of skipping your morning bagel, afternoon sammie or fitness flatbread.

But, the good news is that you won’t. You will not only survive… you will thrive, if you do it well. So, let me hold your hand and show you some healthy gluten free bread options that will make things a little easier for you. Oh…and by the way, I’m not talking about replacing crap with more crap.

I’m talking about using real ingredients to make real foods that heal. Here are 10 gluten free options to use instead of bread.

  1. Lettuce

  2. Omit the bread and wrap sandwich ingredients in lettuce instead. Restaurants like The Bgr Joint and Elevation Burger readily offer lettuce wrapped burgers as options for restaurant patrons.

  3. Almond Flour Wraps

  4. These almond wraps are a major staple at my house. Once you taste them, you’ll know why.

  5. Cauliflower

  6. You’ve heard of cauliflower crust pizza right? Well how about making these cauliflowers tortillas for a switcharoo?

  7. Eggplant

  8. This one happened in my kitchen by accident one day and I’m glad it did. Next time you’re thinking about having a sandwich, you may just want to try some grilled eggplant instead.

  9. Nori

  10. Seaweed is not just for sushi. Make it a wrap by usung Nori sheets around your favorite sandwich ingredients.

  11. Sweet Potato

  12. You’ll want to get a spiralizer attachment for the Kitchen Aid mixer if only to make these sweet potato noodle buns.

  13. Coconut Wraps

  14. Coconut is a hero of the healthy food movement. These coconut wraps offer convenience and flavor if you’re trying to quit bread.

  15. Plantain

  16. Plantain tortillas are made with….Plantains! Well, of course. Since these are fried, I wouldn’t make them an everyday staple but you get the point.
