Foodie Friday: "The Paleo Bread" Experiments

I have been seeing this bread pop up on a few paleo sites lately, and since the bakery happens to be 3 miles from my house, I decided to give it a try.  It is made by Julian Bakery, and comes in both coconut flour and almond flour versions.  I chose the coconut.  The loaf itself was $7, not really in line with my money saving mantra.  It is made from purified water, organic coconut flour, egg whites, psyllium, organic apple cider vinegar and baking soda.  So here's what I made with my bread;  Curry Chicken Sandwich, Pulled Pork Sandwich, and an open-faced Almond Butter and Peach Sandwich.  
Overall, I don't think I will be buying another loaf.  The taste is good, comparable to white bread, not really a strong coconut flavor. But the texture is really lacking, I found it to be very dry and I needed water to make sure it went down all the way.  I read some reviews that it doesn't last long and molds quickly.  I did not run into the problem since I bought it from the source and have eaten a sandwich for the last 3 days. I think it satisfied the need I had to eat something with my hands, but I think next time I will be baking my own.

Curry Chicken Sandwich
Grilled chicken thigh seasoned with poultry grill seasoning and curry powder, lettuce, tomato, whole grain mustard.  Side of sweet potatoes seasoned with coconut oil and 21 Seasoning Salute.
My Red Sox toaster is in the background.  The B didn't turn out that well on the bread.  It didn't really brown up when toasted.
