Anna: That does sound good. I have always been in love with muffins, though I try very hard not to eat them too often. They're hard to resist, though!

Shaha - yes sweet bread has alot of calories and carbs in it! You just have to look at the label on the package and go from there as to how much you can eat. Take for instance, I love hot cross buns (I'm British) - but for one of these - I think it's about 35 carbs and I shiver at what the calorie count is (probably 1/2 my day ration). So, what I try to do (I say "try" as I don't always do this) - is cut the bun in 1/2 - that way less calories - less carbs. Don't forget - other things that mount up the calories are what you put on the bread - e.g. cream cheese, butter, jam. It's all abit mind boggling sometimes when you factor all of these things into just having a slice of toast, bagel, etc. - but at least you're aware of what your putting into your body :)

What's your favourite sweet bread Shaha? Lately mine has been Panettone for breakfast - which I discovered if I slice it right (and weigh it) - is better calorie wise/carb wise - and tastier! I put a bit of butter on it after I've toasted it lightly. Psst, I have yet to make it at home - cheaper to buy at store (and they went on sale after the holidays ).

It depends on what bread she is eating. If it is whole grain bread, then there is nothing better than that for health. Just choose wisely.

I have a friend who honestly believed that bread had no calories. He was like, "It's just bread."

It's mainly important that your mother-in-law watches her carb intake. If she can do that while eating bread, there's no reason not to enjoy it. She could also substitute lower carb alternatives like pita bread or wraps when eating a sandwich and still enjoy one or two pieces from the bread basket when she goes out to dinner.

My mother-in-law has diabetes and she loves bread. She normally eats a couple of slices as a breakfast and maybe some more as a snack. When we go to restarurant, she can't seem to resist the bread basket.
I feel bad for her as I personally love bread (and even make my own) and wonder if there is any healthier chocie for her.
