Is there such a thing? I currently eat a lot of wraps for lunch and pasta dinner. Looking for alternatives so my children don’t notice too much I am low carbing.

You can buy rice, noodles and pasta made from konjac root. Zero Noodles is one brand, for example. Zero carbs and zero calories.

You can also buy low carb wraps

I got some low carb wraps from Ocado: Carbzone £3:99 for 8 small wraps.
Each small 40g tortilla has 110 calories and 4g carbs.
They tasted OK but the texture wasn't good- they were not flexible and just broke when you tried to roll them up. They stuck together in the packet too. I never bought again.

I've had the Carb zone tortillas a few times and they have been very good, almost indistinguishable from normal wraps. The have occasionally stuck together but I have found them soft and flexible unless they get left out in the open. The only flaw that I have found is that they are packed with wheat so while they might be low-carb, they ain't great if you have an intolerance to wheat or gluten.

I also second zero/konjac/yam noodles. Amazing - texture takes a while to get used to but once you do it's fine. I dry fry them then cook them for a minute or so in the sauce to absorb the flavour.

Another bread I use I make myself with milled linseed, egg, xylitol and coconut oil. You can make a loaf or you can make it as a muffin int he microwave, which takes about a minute to cook, then another couple of minutes to cool and set. It's fab - I use it for sandwiches, as a recepticle for pate and mashed avocado, and I haven't tried it yet but apparantly you can also toast it!

Waitrose do a brown low carb bread, but each slice is tiny, which is probably what makes it low carb. It's okay when you really fancy a piecr of toast but I wouldn't eat it more thsn once a week.

We like Keto in the UK's seeded keto, low carb, gluten free bread recipe.

The mix is approx. 600g before baking and there are 14g in the whole loaf. I'm surprised by the number of people who don't realise this isn't a continental loaf of some sort (particularly if you sub in some poppy or caraway seeds).

One of the advantages of the above loaf is that it's cooked in a very moderate temperature. It's not like Sarah Myhill's Paelo bread (it's ground flax/linseed) that needs a very hot oven and a long bake time to ensure an adequate lift.

Chickpea pasta from Sainsbury’s. If you eat 50g then it works out at:

- 84 Calories
- Fat 1.5g
- Carbs 11.2g
- Protein 6.5g

Lidl used to do a high protein roll which was great but they stopped it a few months ago. Need to check to see if they restarted selling it

In case it wasn't clear above, 13g of carbs in whole loaf and it is sturdy enough to withstand being sliced medium-thin.

Nutrition info per entire loaf: Kcal 1400, Fat 102g, Protein 83g, Carbs 13g (fiber 50g)

Bit late but Hovis do at least two delicious low carb breads they're about 9.9g per slice and about the same size as normal sliced bread. The seeded one is lovely. Considering there's 18.8g per slice of 'normal' seeded bread it's a good alternative.

The best low carb bread I've found is the Tesco Finest High Protein bread.

I didn't check the date on the thread.

There's a lush brand of low carb bread you can get at some Waitrose (I recommend you email customer support), it's called Livlife seriously seeded bread & is the bomb!

I used to use it for Turkey bacon sarnies and toasted sandwiches. The slices are relatively small but crisps up in the toaster so isn't soggy and limp like other low carb loaves

Seriously wish I could get it again!

I have the Waitrose bread and freeze what I don't use as it says moist in the toaster

The zero carb noodles are ace. I had some tonight for the first time. 10 calories! Slightly suspicious fishy smell when I opened the packet but once rinsed and cooked they tasted exactly like rice noodles (and I can pick up fishy-ness from a mile away)
