Yup, the juicer ! Another appliance that doesn't really fit with our low-carb lifestyle. Unless we prepare green juices - and I admit we don't do that....and probably won't, now that we eat kale raw, as part of a salad.

The Goodwill Store will appreciate the donation, and I get yet more free cupboard space. If this continues, I'll soon I'll be able to downsize to a smaller kitchen. Not true for my utility room, though, where I have a huge freezer for my stash of nuts and seed, grain-free baked stuff, protein, and frozen soups. There is also a second fridge for the ton of fresh vegetables we consume.

The Keurig sounds tempting, but we already got one of those stands for bottled water. Rather than drinking the water cold, we use the hot-water feature to prepare individual cups of tea. It's a bit of a waste on the tea bags, but the price per cup is probably still lower than the Keurig's, so I don't feel too guilty. It's amazing how much water we consume in a single week !

Def. make room for the Keurig. I don't use it much for coffee ( I am doing 28 days of no caffeine or dairy) but I use it for decaf. teas. I just put the bag in my cup and hit the button, let it steep for a few minutes.

I use to juice, well I would go in spurts. But now I would rather just eat it also :)

My breadmaker is also my toaster oven. It's huge - takes up a lot of counter space, but the oven function has been helpful in the past. Even so, I've been thinking of swapping it out for a smaller, regular toaster for my husband to use.

Same thing with our juicer - I find we just eat all the veggies we juice in their solid form, so we're really not receiving any additional benefit from juicing. I used to bake the pulp into bread, but I probably won't do that anymore. I could use the pulps for soups and such...

Somehow, I need to find counter space for the Keurig machine I got for my birthday last year (and this was back in August) so you can see what kind of procrastinator I am.

Birgit,

thanks for starting this thread ! It made me realize that my bread maker will also not see any action anytime soon. Hubby and I are definitely off grains for good - 10 months without them, never looked back.

Goodwill, here it comes !

Hi GOPINTOS
Thanks for this site, I had a look and will make the buns as soon as I can get some eggs. I ran out making WB Tortillas. I made double the recipe and have put some in the freezer. I hope they freeze ok.
I'm not sure I have made them that well but they are ok for a first time.
This is my 3rd day on WB and I keep running out of things like Golden flaxseed. I will gradually get a good stock of ingredient in the cupboard.

Ooopsie rolls, new to me, anyone got a clue as to where to find them?

Bread Maker: Attic, 6 months, if not used or missed, SELL;)

Thanks to everyone who gave their input. It should shorten my procrastination on the issue considerably. emoticon
I am considering trying oopsie rolls, too.

I never owned a bread maker, and only once in a blue moon would I make yeasted bread. I sometimes made muffins and pies though but now, hardly ever. it's easier just to stay away from them and they don't 'hit the spot' in the same way.

I had a breadmaker and found I was eating a LOT of bread - it was such fun to experiment with the different kinds I could make (Not the low carb kinds then). I finally sold it at a yard sale we were having and never looked back! ***although I might have shed a tear when it went** I've not been sorry though, it really could get me into trouble! Made some really awesome breads, but one can only make so much bread (especially since I live alone)...

I keep meaning to try the oopsie rolls but never have yet.

I wasnt much on store bought breads, but loved loved LOVED homemade bread. So I tried to not make it very often, or else I could eat the whole thing myself.

I really liked using my breadmaker. I was getting pretty good with homemade rolls. I used it for pizza crusts, quite a few things actually.

Ha,ha, another pack rat. emoticon It's been sitting in storage for almost a year I have to confess. Maybe I should sell it on e-bay. It's still in the original box.

If I were you, I'd put it in the attic or garage and let it sit there awhile. You never know when you might need it.

I tried Oopsie rolls for the first time the other day. I added some unflavoured protein powder (they were more bread in texture). I really liked them for my burger.

I just gave away my trusty old bread making machine via Freecycle. I used to make my own bread all the time - both the old fashioned way and with the machine, but since I've gone grain free I have not had any occasion or desire to use it, so it was just taking up space.
I have really become well accustomed to life without bread. I've tried a few fakes like Oopsie rolls, but generally speaking I find they are more trouble than they are worth.
I too try to keep the carbs really low, so gluten free substitutes are generally out except for once in a very great while. If I'm going to indulge myself in such, I buy such breads rather than go to the length required to make them.

All the low carb breads I have made have been a "quick bread style" of bread. Just stir and pour into a loaf pan.
I got rid of my bread maker a couple of years ago. I wan't that impressed with the quality of the traditional yeast breads anyhow... lol

This thing has never been used because I never had the time to learn how to make bread with it, LOL, maybe a blessing.
But now I have a perfectly good, brand-new bread maker taking up space and I'm wondering if anyone has used a bread maker regularly to make low-carb breads using nut and coconut flours. I am not going to ever eat any grain again because I eat very low-carb so gluten-free flours made from tapioca, rice, potato or other starches are out for me.
I'm in especially interested if anyone has found a bread maker to actually save time over making these low-carb breads the traditional way.
So far I have felt too busy to bother with making any type of low-carb bread products and just done without them except for occasional pancakes.
Please share your experiences. emoticon
