Exclamation Kraft and SBD

Hey! I get the Daily Dish, which is great! You can get it for free from the official SBD site.

Anyways, this was at the top of my issue today:

"On June 9, 2004, Kraft Foods Inc. announced that it signed an agreement forming an alliance with Dr. Arthur Agatston, cardiologist and creator of the South Beach Diet™. Kraft will use the South Beach Diet™ trademark to indicate products that can be used by people following the South Beach Diet™ program. Look for more details in the "diet updates" section of www.southbeachdiet.com as they become available."

Pretty cool! :

Very cool. However, you do have to subscribe to the site to view diet updates, I think. Good going, Kraft!

Great news - we use a lot of Kraft products and it would be great to have a quick reference on the label for SBD friendly products!

Everyone probably uses a lot of Kraft products and doesn't even know it.

This is great news (I used to work there!)

Sure hope they figure out how to make a South Beach Kraft Macaroni and Cheese Lord, how I miss it. I used to tell my family that if I was being buried and they wanted to make sure I was really dead, just waft a bowl of macaroni and cheese under my nose. If there's the faintest spark of life left, I guarantee I'll sit bolt upright

I just read the article on Kraft.com and i am so excited that they are making such good efforts to help people get healthy. They ar going to make their labels better to read and make individually packaged in smaller portions! It feeels good to know that life will become so much simpler...lol

I'm going to pull a sort of a "Ruth".
I hate to bring my political agenda into the conversation, but... no, I don't.
I don't buy Kraft because they are owned by Philip Morris.
However, there are some good recipes on that site, and they can be used without having to buy Kraft!

Ellis, you little pot-stirrer!

Good for you for standing up to them! I wish I had that kind of control. I guess the thing about this news that gets me most excited is that if Kraft starts doing this, I bet other companies will follow suit, which will make it so much easier for all of us!

Hey, I agree with you guys about mac n' cheese...that's what I was CRAVING when I went through the first three days of Phase I. I haven't bought Kraft in a long time, though...just the store brand (I'm cheap) and Annie's (they have a bunny for their mascot and are organic). How awesome would it be to have an SBD friendly version! I bet the original has bad fats, not to mention the refined pasta. Anyone have a good homemade version of mac n' cheese that we could modify for Phase 2? My mom always just bought Stouffers!

There is a great recipe for "Mom's Macaroni And Cheese" at recipesource [dot] com (when can I post a link???)

It's a very simple recipe and you could probably modify it easily. Actually, you could probably make it with a little more cheese and put in cauliflower or other veggies and completely leave out the pasta/bread and it would still be very yummy... What about adding a little parmesan or peccarino romano after it was done cooking to make up for the texture of the bread crumbs?

What do you think?

This is really fantastic news! The problem is, I don't have a subscription to the SBD site -- it's too expensive for my currently-in-car-debt blood.

Still, the fact that a major corporation like Kraft teamed up with Dr.A, is really smart on their part. Take that, Atkins! (Hehe.) It will be nice when this stuff shows up eventually, it'll make shopping so much easier. Obviously since I'm only in Ph1, I'm basically buying all fresh food (save Laughing Cow cheese, I guess). But come Ph2? I'm all over that.

I actually did the product study for this. I couldn't say anything as I am bound by a contract but yes, they are going to put out a whole line of products!!!

www.recipesource.com is the link for Mom's Mac and Cheese.
ADD, yYou can post a link after 50 or 100 posts - I forget which. We put that in to keep out the riffraff who post advertising on their first post!
