Another Aldi find! This is not super healthy and definitely not meant for those who just had surgery, but OMG these chicken cutlets are amazing. Taste just like Chick-fil-A. I just eat a half of one and I'm stuffed, but for the family, they get a whole one on brioche Buns (also from Aldi) with a couple pickles and they gobble it right up!

Oh yes the fabled red bag chicken filets. They are very good.

Not exactly a Grocery food Item, but worth looking into, if you drink carbonated water...(wasn't sure where to post this!!)

I tried Shirataki Pasta (found at Walmart) for the first time this week, and I like it! It has a bad smell in the bag, but I prepared it like this and there was no taste or smell:

I ate 1/4 cup of it with some delicious turkey meat sauce (https://www.panningtheglobe.com/quick-turkey-ragu/) and it was a decent imitation of spaghetti. I prefer this to zucchini or butternut squash noodles because I don't like squash.

I'm a big fan of cauliflower rice. It's weird because I hate cauliflower, but I don't mind cauliflower rice. With sauce and mix-ins, I can almost fool myself into thinking I'm eating actual rice. I mostly buy the plain kind, but this fried rice style makes a good lazy 3-ingredient meal: fried cauliflower rice + frozen pulled chicken + Huy Fong chili garlic sauce. The nutrition info is for the entire bag, but I only eat 1/5 of the bag (2 ounces).

This frozen pulled chicken is awesome. It is so convenient to keep in the freezer. I think it's better than the grilled chicken strips. It's great for salads, mixing with cauliflower rice, covering with sugar-free BBQ Sauce, etc. -- basically any time I don't feel like cooking my own chicken.

Probably TMI here, but be careful where and when you eat these (at least at first!) I brought them to work (before WLS) and they made me VERY gassy! Like, I had to go home or embarrass myself gassy! Just be careful...that's all I'm saying!

I would not eat this - I have to be very very careful with artificial sweeteners. It has erythritol and sorbitol both which cause me to have the runs really really really badly. I cannot drink any of the weight loss shakes or meal replacers or these "diet bars" no zero calorie sweetened yogurt, no low cal/low sugar ice creams unless I read the ingerdients really carefully. Anyone with celiac disease of gluten intolerance also should be VERY careful with these.

I guess I'm lucky, I use artificial sweeteners all the time with no issues at all. Didn't realize how lucky I was I guess. :-)

they've never bothered me, either - but evidently they do a lot of people.

Sweeteners and real sugar affect me in the same way...in small amounts ok, but too much at a time or on an empty stomach results in dumping
