Gluten Free Subway Bun

Today for lunch tried the gluten free bun at Subway. It costs an extra $1 in Canada but is so worth it in my view. I got the butter chicken sub with Swiss cheese, spinach, jalapenos, and cucumber. I did not get anything I should not eat on it. This is a major accomplishment because I try to be gluten, lactose and nightshade free (O.K. so jalapenos are nightshades but there was only a few on it and I did not have green peppers too). I juggle the cheats when I go out to eat and try not to have more than one at any meal. The butter chicken was not amazing to me. I found the taste was not as “bold” as I was expecting, so I would have preferred my normal go to sub – turkey bacon. But it was fun to try something new.

My sub was toasted. The warm gluten free bun was great, at least according to my taste buds. It had the moisture and texture of fresh regular bread (sometimes I find my gluten free choices and dry and crumbly). I did not have any of my children with me so was not able to do the kid test. If they say it is good then I can actually take it somewhere or recommend it. Today I am going to be wild and crazy and recommend it anyways without their endorsement. I really enjoyed it and did not have any of the after effects that I would get from regular Subway buns.
