If you are going to have bread, ER physician expert Dr. Travis Stork suggests you opt for whole wheat sourdough, which contains wild yeast and the probiotic Lactobacillus, both of which make the bread easier to digest. This type of bread is made from whole grains, which helps to maintain the food's nutrient profile and fiber.

The Doctors also note this bread is often more nutritious than other types of bread. Of course, this type of bread still contains carbs, but if you're going to eat bread, it could be a healthier option.

Another comfort food that is packed with carbs is pasta, but we have a creative food swap (that uses Enoki mushrooms) that can drastically cut the carbs in your next Italian meal.
