Help! I love all the high fat foods that you guys talk about, but here is my problem. I don't like them without a carb:(. The thought of eating a spoon full of peanut butter by itself almost makes me sick, but I love it with a cracker. Same goes for cheese. Are there any low carb options I could use to replace crackers/bread?

There are many options for low-carb bread, and some good crackers recipes.

The down side of this is one has to make them. At least, the ones that taste good and have a good texture.

Optimist crackers is my favorite cracker and toppings taste great on them. My second cracker choice (not nearly as good as Optimist crackers) is a crackerbread by Andre's (I purchase them on netrition .com) I think there are some other low-carb crackers that some here eat but they contain wheat so I've never tried them.

I sometimes roll lunch meat up with cheese and/or spinach and lettuce, with added mayo and mustard, and eat these as though they were sandwiches. They're pretty good, actually.

Ive found that Creativity is the key to eating low-carb, and a willingness to try different and unfamiliar things - now and then we find that they are not only good, but better than the carby foods.

Even when I could eat peanut butter I could not eat it off a spoon. My sister does that some times and I almost gag. Before I became highly allegic to nuts, I use to eat it on crackers. Try it on wheat crackers or gluten free crackers. I can said I have had gluten free sugar free muffins and it was like eating straw.

Wasa Crisp bread is a lower carb option if you just can't live without the bread.
I've gotten into the habit of replacing bread with lettice leaves. You can make a pretty respectable wrap with a leaf type lettuce like romain.
Rather than peanut butter, i just eat the nuts.
