View Full Version : I want bread.

Someone give me a raw substitute for bread, particulary one that emulates bread that's used in pizza (like papa john's pizza) and/or one that emulates cuban bread.

Gosh! Ya know Goldsplinter...at first I thought maybe people were treating you a bit harshly, but I do now notice a pattern in your posts...there is never any "Could you please give me..." or "Can you..." or "Please" or "Thank you".
Instead of "I want bread...someone give me a raw substitute for bread", how about, "Could someone please give me a raw substitute for bread, thanks in advance" and then when people DO take the time and energy to post to you or look up a thread, how about coming back and saying, "Thanks". I know this isn't a "manners forum" (if one such forum even exists), but perhaps people would be more inclined to help you and not give you such a hard time in their replies if you tried being a little more polite in your requests.
Just a suggestion.
And for the record, NO raw breads will taste or have the texture of cooked, yeast-based breads/crusts. So once again, you will either have to learn to accept the new textures and flavors of raw foods or learn to live without those things you are craving.

if youre not 100% you can always purchase some Ezekiel bread to help in your transition. its sprouted whole grain with no preservatives or additives. its stored in the freezer section at health food stores. it is NOT raw, however, but it IS cooked at low temps (160 degrees F sticks out in my head for some reason but i may be remembering incorrectly)
i wouldnt recommend this long term, not only because it isnt raw but because i dont recommend grains in general. but it may be able to serve as a healthier alternative to completely SAD bread until you better adjust to the raw food lifestyle.
google it. itll come up.

Nah, i'm 100%.

hmmm, I haven't found any papa johns like bread on raw, thank goodness! If I may suggest experimenting with some soaked or spouted wheatberries and various spices and herbs that may find something comfortable to your taste.

:p I know how you feel about bread, i was a "bread addict", i ate it with oatmeal in the morning, sandwiches for lunch and ate it with dinnner.
If you go to search at the top of the page and type in bread recipes you will find quite a few up there.
My problem is it takes a long time to dehydrate them but they work.
Hope this helps you.
I've had to go "cold turkey" with my love for bread and now i don't crave it like i use to. :)

I think the only thing that will help kick the bread cravings is to eat enough calories from fruit! Bananas will certainly help. Learn to eat lots!

When you are craving cooked carbs it means you need to eat more fruit carbs (like melons or dates).

Not craving, just really love bread.

Well Said, Rawkinlocs!
Manner's are always welcomed in my book also! Guess we were raised differently!
Warm Blessings and Thank You,

The closest thing I've found to regular bread is the onion bread.

I like your footnote
