Hi, Readymom. Those products contain overly process ingredients that are likely to work against your goals here. The calories are less of an issue than the isolated fructose and hydrogenated fat. You can use nut bars as snacks, but we encourage you to try ones that are made from whole foods types of ingredients. Look for ingredients lists that contain items that are easy to understand – the following are examples from Pure Bar:
*Dates, *Cashews Butter, *Semisweet Chocolate (*Chocolate, *Cane Sugar, *Cocoa Butter), *Cocoa, *Almonds, *Walnuts, *Sea Salt.
*Organic
and Lara Bar:
PEANUTS, HONEY, ALMONDS, PUMPKIN SEEDS, CACAO NIBS*, COCONUT OIL, MAPLE SUGAR, COCOA POWDER*, SEA SALT

Hi, Sherry. It depends on how many exchanges you are allotted for that nutrient food group (carbohydrates). Each ounce (28-gram) slice of bread is 1 carbohydrate exchange, and you can see how many exchanges you have at each meal and day by clicking on “Exchange mode” in the toolbar above your menu. Another important factor is the composition of the bread – make sure it is 100% whole grain or wholemeal, without excessive added sugar or hydrogenated fats.

Hi, Ossie11. Yes, it is definitely OK if it is whole grain (rye is a grain).

Hi, hwyla. Yes to all 🙂

Am I correct in assuming that any sprouted grain is a whole grain? It doesn’t seem as if it could sprout if it wasn’t. I do wonder if the Ezekiel brand is considered 100% whole grain though since it has Organic Wheat Gluten listed as an ingredient? It is at least way towards the end of the ingredients list.

Hi, maxxgreathead. Not necessarily – it’s better to read the ingredients list to be sure. Only gluten-free products that are whole grain will help keep glucose balance. Many of those products tend to be made with refined flours, so again, it’s important to read the labels.

Is wheat free bread the same as gluten free bread?Gluten free bread is easier to find but will it keep insulin and fat stores low like you say wheat free bread does?
