I have to eat bread at 3 meals every weekend and on a few other days throughout the year. What do you recommend for maintaining a Paleo-centric diet during the rest of the week to try and offset the obligatory carb intake each weekend?

You could also try spelt, teff, and eikhorn grains. They fall under kosherut rules if that's what your looking for. I personally tried spelt recently and had problems but I'm sensitive to a ton of foods.

Hey April, I'm happy to respect your religion. Please respect the rules of the road here at PH, the first of which is: "Ask questions" related to the Paleo lifestyle. Your wish "to open this up for discussion" is not a question.
