Default Your Favorite Products (for use in the SBD lifestyle)

I was thinking, there are some nice products I found and we could share our special finds to inspire eachother? I know I would love to read some of your favorite products so I could look for them and incorporate them into my lifestyle as well.

Here's a few things I've found while trying out different brands and products:

-75% RF Cabot cheddar (and sharp and extra sharp) is so delicious, SO full of flavor (I get this at Walmart)

- Bob's Mill Almond Flour/Meal (Crusts for chicken, fish, desserts, even makes yummy pancakes) (found at Walmart)

-Just found an old-school dressing at Walmart. Kraft owns Seven Seas now and they have $2 Green Goddess salad dressing, with only 2 grams of sugar. Tasty and a nice way to jazz up your salads (has a nice pale green color!)

-Nevella, a new sweetener like Splenda, and it has probiotics in it. But it's yum, tastes like powdered sugar. ( I must admit to literally eating a spoon, but it's not something I'd recommend doing! But it was quite tasty!)

-Cedar's Smooth & Creamy Style Roasted Garlic Hummus (for the garlic lovers! Full of garlic flavor!)

What's some products you guys swear by?

Sorry, but the potato starch is one of the first three ingredients, so they're a no-no.

Default SB bars

I really wish I lived in the states because I love the heck out of those South Beach granola type bars. Especially the smores ones. My friend gets GI distress from them... sugar alcohols can be soooo bad for that, but I do not (HA). I can't wait till phase two starts so I can have those strangely foamy sticky weird bars. I have a stock pile...

Unfortunately, Canada doesn't sell a lot of prepackaged foods aimed directly at south beach dieters. For any fellow Canadians out there, Steady Eddie bread by Silver Hills is brilliant. I think 5g of fibre per slice, sprouted grain, no flour, no added sugar and is the best toast ever, diet or no diet.

Superstore is the cheapest place to get steel cut oats too. They're terrible until you add splenda, cinnamon, nutmeg, vanilla extract, cloves and ginger at the very end. Then it's delicious.

Why cant we have Dannon 0% vanilla yougurt on phase 1? Its made with splenda and its vanilla? There is no fruit in it or fruit flavouring.. It is no-fat yougurt???? Contains no sugar..so im confuzed as to why not??? Whats the difference between eating that and buying plain no fat yougurt and adding vanilla extract and splenda?? I just think the vanilla no fat yougurt tastes way better then my homemade version..Im canadian so we dont have "Da Vinci" syrups..We have Torrani, but are severely limited to sugar free syrup flavours..

I don't know what the ingredients are in your yogurt, but this is what I found about Dannon Vanilla Light & Fit. The added fructose, modified food starch and corn starch are not SB friendly. The greek yogurt I use has non-fat milk and yogurt cultures, nothing else.

Nonfat Yogurt (Cultured Grade A Non Fat Milk, Modified Food Starch, Fructose, Kosher Gelatin, Vitamin A Palmitate, Vitamin D3)Water, Fructose, contains Less than 1% of Modified Corn Starch, Natural Vanilla Flavor, Aspartame, Citric Acid, Potassium Sorbate (to Maintain Freshness)Caramel Color, Acesulfame Potassium, Sucralose, Annatto Extract (for Color)Sodium Citrate.
