If you don't like seeds in bread, then going for rye bread sounds like a good option. You get used to the taste and its very filling as well as being high in fibre.

The best type of rye bread to get is called 'Henrys Bakehouse 100% rye bread' you can get it from coles.

Its around $4-5 a loaf but is much better for you and much more filling than white bread.

I really like Noble Rise Wholemeal and grain bread too. But you may not like it with the grains. It is also very high in fibre and quite filling though not as much as the rye bread.

When looking at bread, have a look at the nutritional stats. You basically want something that contains a good 6-8 grams of fibre or more per serve. Fat content around 2-4 grams (some are higher) with low saturated fat. Most breads contain a good 200-300 calories and its up to you with carbs. Most are around 25-35 carbs per serve.
Saying goodbye to calorie counting AND scales for a while.

I have to admit I love wholegrain bread, but wholemeal is also good. I just get the Coles brand ones usually. I don't think they make a rye bread, though. I think Fiona's suggestion is perfect for your needs to be honest. Good luck! I hope you find a healthy bread that you like.

Wholemeal is definitely better than white bread, but be sure to take your time reading the nutritional stats as some will be much better for you than others.

Noble rise wholemeal is pretty good. Just pick the one that is higher in fibre, generally a good rule of thumb and will usually end up being better for you than the ones low in fibre.

having worked for a bakery at the local market, my advice would be a GOOD sourdough 100% wholemeal if you don't like grain. Beware of shop sourdough's though - they're generally just normal bread with a bit of sourdough culture to give a bit of taste. A proper sourdough is heavier and firmer than normal squishy shop bread. If you read something like 'wheat flour, water, yeast, sourdough culture/starter" on the ingredients, it's not proper sourdough

If you can bring yourself to try a wholegrain bread for a week or so, you will probably find that you get used to the grains? I know I used to hate it and know I love it! It's also really good in the fibre stakes cause it helps to cleanse your bowel, really good for preventing bowel cancer.

I think I remember reading somewhere that whilst wholemeal bread is better for you than white bread in terms of fat & nutritional content, it still goes through as much refining of the grains in it and therefore the fibre is equal to white bread? I think that's right???

But... if you really can't handle grainy breads, then a wholemeal or even a low GI white bread would be a good option. I find the Wonder White Low GI bread is quite filling.
Cheers,
Kate

may not be a direct solution to your problem but what about mountain bread? You can have wraps with it rather than sandwiches & it is still pretty filling when you get over how thin it looks. Less carbs than bread too.

You should be careful and read the ingredients lists and avoid bread with particular preservatives (I think 254, 256 but not too sure) as these are VERY unhealthy. They are the preservatives used for stopping the bread go mouldy. Another member might know the actual preservative numbers. I just get bread with no preservatives at all so forget which ones!

Bread alternatives are wraps (out of mountain bread), or maybe corn thins.

I use Noble Rise Wholemeal. They are nice thick big pieces - 2 pieces at lunch with ham and salad keeps me full for literally hours.

Preservative 282 in Bread has been linked to ADHD type symptoms in small children. When they have been given bread without 282, their behavioral problems have disappeared, not sure what it does to adults though.

I like the flat breads, very thin great for wraps and very low in cals too. Loads of variety wholemeal corn etc and great for making oven baked chip type things for lite dips too :mrgreen:
