Most of us haven’t watched what they eat before starting to workout out and exercise and a lot of people enjoy their daily slices of bread (or bread rolls). There are a lot of different bread types around but most of them are full of carbs, which makes it difficult to limit the intake of insulin-spiking sugars.

Granted, today you can get protein-rich breads as well but most of the time they cost quite a lot. So, we thought about a neat solution and came up with his tasty low carb bread recipe for you. It got its fair share of protein, a little bit of fat and is low in carbohydrates.

A perfect bread for making low carb sandwiches!
