<sigh> As a diabetic who needs to steer clear of simple carbs, I also am aware of the siren song of fresh bread, the scent, the way butter melts in it, the tangible sensation of breaking away pieces to sop up flavored olive oil while bits of crust fly everywhere…

And Panera bread bowl soups with a side of bread is NOT my friend. Not the way the broth seeps into the sides… the way the top can be turned into a spoon to scoop up chunks… the way the bowl is finally pulled apart to savor the last soft flavors…


Pass the cauliflower crust pizza, please. Sure, put more kale on there, that’s fine.
