No Aldi’s where I live😭😭😭

Trader Joe’s and Whole Foods are my places where I do 95% of my shopping.

We have Aldi’s but not Trader Joe’s or Whole Foods... I will trade you!!!

Just ordered Smartcakes from Amazon - Cinnamon and Raspberry Cream. I wanted Lemon...but they were (even more) outrageously priced! $34 for 8 packs vs. $24,

I am greedy...I want all three🤣🤣

But I do adore Trader Joe’s and Whole Foods and both are less than 15 minutes from my house. Lucky me! 😊

I feel bad for everyone that has none of the above 😭😭

They are available on Bariatric Pal. Might be cheaper there.

I’m a big fan of the Wal-Mart Great Value Water flavoring powders & I've bought them for years. They just came out with a Tropical Limeade flavor that’s amazing. Like, I went & bought 7 more boxes amazing!

I just combined some grape flavored water & the limeade and it’s delicious. Almost like the Sonic grape/lime slushees I used to get, without being slushy of course. Next I’m going to try cherry limeade. And I just know these are going to make amazing popsicles!

Found these this morning online while trying to find tortilla options. Ordered 4 packs of them and am cautiously optimistic!

Did you give these a shot yet? Any good?

Just ordered from Mr. Tortilla! Can't wait for some low carb street tacos! I LOVE this thread!

Not gonna lie, I am chomping at the bit for you to get your order (they seem to only ship the 1-carb orders every 2 weeks) to hear what you (and anyone else who ordered them) thinks of them.

So after going through this whole thread the biggest takeaway is to plan a trip to Aldi's 😂

Also, has anyone found a healthy alternative to flamin hot cheetos/any other spicy chips? Those were my guilty pleasure pre-WLS but they are sooo bad for you but I miss the heat lol

I don't know that it'll have quite the same heat kick as Flamin Hot Cheetos, but there are some Jalapeno Cheddar Protein Puffs out there: https://www.amazon.com/Allergy-Friendly-Protein-Jalapeno-Cheddar/dp/B078YF26BT/

Plus there was a recipe posted for homemade "Fritos" chips using chickpea Pasta got posted. Could do it up with your own spice blend for seasoning to get the heat going!

Good morning! Got my Mr. Tortilla delivery yesterday, so I made egg and cheese tacos this morning. This is 1 egg, 1 egg white, 1 T of shredded cheese, 1T sour cream and 2 T of salsa. I was able to eat 1 taco and the overflow egg and cheese. It was good...but the tortilla (Pico de Gallo) had a strange texture...I think it would have been better if I had cooked both sides of the tortilla. Cook one side, add filling, then cook the other with the filling inside. But still, VERY satisfying!

Scored these at Aldi today. They are both delicious. 80 calories for 2 tbsp but can easily make a serving out of only 1 tbsp and make it just 40 calls!

I got my hands on a loaf of the zero carb bread the other day and tried making a sandwich with light mayo and deli turkey, but I don't think my stomach agrees with it yet... darn! The same thing happened with low-carb tortillas. I'll try again in a month or so...

I got the variety pack of Magic Spoon cereals last week, and I've tried a couple of bowls since then.

One 1 oz serving plus 4 oz milk comes to about 15g of Protein. The texture is pretty good and crisp, and it holds up pretty well sitting in the milk if you eat slow like I do. Flavor is good but I'm not sure if I'll buy them again as they are a touch too sweet for me. I also can't shake the fact that seems like a 'fake' food, but I think that criticism is a little unfair.. the Protein Shakes I drink every day aren't any more 'real' 🤷‍♀️

Anyways, here's a picture of the frosted variety!

Definitely wanted to try those!
