Ok, I've been relatively GF for the past couple of months and I have to say I'm feeling (and looking) great. Here's the problem, GF bread is just awful! I've tried 2 different kinds now and blech... tongue

Surely there is a GF bread out there that is decent tasting...somewhere? I've tried plain and raisin bread. How bad could raisin bread be you ask? I had to top it with apple butter to get it down. Horrid. Anything with a 'bread' type of consistency is just no good. So, I've been 'sneaking' in a couple of slices of regular good wheat bread on occasion (I can tell the difference).

On the other hand, I did find some good GF pretzels (made by the company that made the raisin bread). Go figure.

Help!!! Anyone find anything decent??? Thanks.

I too tried some Gluten Free bread. It wasn't raisin bread though. I thought the raisin bread would have been good. I didn't care for what I bought. Forgot what it was exactly. Had some kind of seeds, it was dry and awful. The health food store I went to had either gluten free rolls or biscuits one. I tried gluten free waffles like eggo waffles and they were good. Maybe search online for health food products. Here is the list of gluten free breads Wild Oats Market had. I think I tried the millet bread. It was awful.
They have gluten free English muffins. They may not be bad. Here is their list of gluten free breads if there is a Wild Oats Market near you or something like it.

It seems most our grocery stores have a rather large section of gluten free foods now including breads. If you have a Trader Joes around they have the gluten free bread. People keep telling me it is good but what I tried was just terrible. I don't have gluten problem but did get some free once and that was what it was worth.

Do you have a bread maker? I'm thinking that if you made it fresh, it would be less likely to dry out since you would eat it within a couple days of it being made. That way it probably would keep its moisture longer. I know they sell the GF bread mixes. If you have one, it may be worth a try.
