When you signed up for GreenLite, you probably bid farewell to that tasty loaf of bread sitting in your pantry in favor of lean protein and lot’s of veggies. However, thanks to the genuises at Chompies Deli, a slice of toast could be back in your morning routine (or perhaps at least your Sunday brunch)
Serving Size: 1 Slice
Carb Exchange: 1/2
Chompie’s multigrain bread boasts phenomenial nutritional stats (only 1g net carb!!) and a relatively natural list of ingredients, which we think is fantastic. According to Owner and CEO of GreenLite, Dr. Sooji Rugh, “It’s the lowest carb bread we’ve seen”. This low carb line comes in 3 different flavors: Multigrain, Cinnamon Raisin and Sesame. We think Chompie’s outshines the competitors in the realm of taste, size and nutritional value. One serving of bread is actually the size of a “normal” slice of bread, Chompie’s doesn’t skip on taste, quality or portion. We love it!
The texture of Chompie’s is a bit more “spongy” and dense than your typical slice of bread. It has an eggy, “Broiche” quality to it, but if you try to banish any bread expectations before trying Chompie’s, we guarantee you will love it! The cinnamon raisin flavor has a hint of cinnamon sweetness (and a tiny amount of raisins) for a sweet treat, while the sesame option is great when you’re looking for something other than the typical multigrain variety.
We discovered Chompie’s at Sprout’s Farmers Market’s Stores in Sunnyvale (near El Camino and Matilda) which is relatively close to our GreenLite Mountain View location. If you aren’t familiar with Sprouts, it’s like the grocery store baby of Whole Foods and Trader Joe’s. Chompie’s is definitely worth the trip to Sprout’s and you may stumble upon a few other healthy treats while you’re there. Chompie’s is also available through Low Carb Confection’s if you don’t feel up to a trip to the grocery store.
Chompie’s sells for $5.99 through Low Carb Confection’s and Sprouts. Since high protein specialty products are usually pretty pricey, we think this price for 16 slices of high protein (almost no carb) goodness is a bargain! Plus the added protein will keep you full for hours.
We think Chompie’s is almost too good to be true and is definitely worth the trek to Sprout’s or the extra cost of shipping from Low Carb Confections. Pop it in the freezer once you break open the packaging and put it in the toaster when you need a carby treat. For a truly decadent treat, whip up some low carb french toast and soak in egg whites, cinnamon and almond milk and throw on the griddle for a breakfast treat. The possibilities are really endless, but remember to still keep in mind that whole fruits and vegetables and lean proteins are ideal for a truly healthy diet, so be sure to be aware of your Chompie’s intake and focus on natural ingredients straight from mother earth herself!
