Explore Asian Organic Black Bean Spaghetti Pasta -- 7.05 oz

I'm undecided about this. I've been under the weather and my taste buds seem to be off. I made a great spaghetti sauce and vegetarian meatballs, but when I added the spaghetti noodles, it seemed tp lose its flavor.

I ate a serving and was full. I put the rest in the freezer--hopefully it will gain some flavor for next time.
I'll write a better review after my second try of it.

Okay, its a no go on the black bean pasta for me.
I tried it after being frozen and it was very watery and it tasted bitter.
Glad I only ordered one bag.

The edamame pasta was good but there's a learning curve when it comes to cooking.
Good to know about the black bean pasta.
Chick pea should be good but it takes me so long to finish a package of pasta that it may be a while before I try it.....maybe I'll just stick to making it myself since it's just for me, I don't need a pasta maker.

Today Costco was sampling MSF sausage patties. They are good but I don't know when I'd use them. They'd probably be good for a snack.
I may try a link for sausage and peppers some day.

I like the patties from MSF, but I add my own sausage seasoning to them and top them with pepper jack cheese. Great for a quick breakfast. The links were not as good to me.

Hi,
Has anyone tried Banza chickpea pasta? I haven't been able to find it yet. It sounds like there isn't any corn in it. Allot of gluten free pastas have corn in them (i'm allergic to corn).

Sprouts stores are supposed to carry it.
You can order it from Walmart or amazon, but I think you have to buy it by the case.

Chickpea flour alone will make pasta so I'm not surprised to hear about it....even on GMA.

I haven't tried it yet but did make that recipe with CP flour and flax. I am going to try it as a dumpling next.

HFS, especially places like Whole Foods that carry everything should have it.

Crispy Green Tangerine

Crispy Green Tangerine

This is made by crispy green inc. and they have other products.
I only ordered this one to try.

It's delicious and 8 carbs for the bag. Of course the bag is the entire serving.

They are light and look like "air" tangerine slices and very crispy.
I'm interested in trying their other products. I ordered this one online, just to fill an order and for kicks.

I'll have to go shopping again soon.
I find tangerines themselves are too sour for me, but I liked these crispy ones.

Boultinghouse Farms Multi-V Goodness Cherry

Boultinghouse Farms Multi-V Goodness Cherry

I bought this pre-made smoothie for a quick fix.

In my opinion, its not really healthy. It has 30 carbs and 1 gram of protein, so not the best choice for me or a low carber.

It tastes good though, I'll give it that. I probably won't buy it again. I wasn't thinking when I got it.

Chickpea Chips

Chickpea Chips

I forget the brand name, but they are tasty. I wasn't sure if I would like them, but they don't taste like chickpeas at all.

The serving size has 13 carbs which is a bit lower than regular chips would be.

I give this product a thumbs up. I'll post the brand when I get back to it.

So the Suzie's are in the stores? Are they puffy like rice cake or flat/crisp like a cracker?
I'll look for them.

I have Mary's Gone Crackers which are not LC but good BUT they tend to repeat....which means I'm not gonna eat 'em.

I've heard so many good things about the Organic No-Salt Seasoning from Costco that I finally decided to buy some thinking I can always return it.

I am not no salt but have reduced it quite a bit since I don't seem to need so much with the change in eating.

This seasoning is really good. A thumbs up for sure.

We love that seasoning, jem. I use it on just about everything. Love the Mary's crackers too, and fortunately don't have the repeat issue. Those Suzie's thin cakes sound great Nigel - I haven't heard about those before. Did you find them in a grocery store or HFS?

One really new thing I've tried is organic noni fruit leather and noni/lavender lotion. We toured the organic noni farm in Hawaii where they grow the noni and make the products. Very pricey, but I'm seeing some amazing results from them. The leather is, um, palatable , and seems to be clearing up a chronic cough I've had for years. The lotion is making inroads on a couple of skin issues. I hope these keep working.

They have them at some HEB food stores here. I do know they also sell them on amazon.

The Suze's are pretty flat, like a big square cracker.

Good Health Apple Chips

Good Health Apple Chips

They are okay, but overly sweet to me. There isn't any type of sweetner added, but they taste way sweeter than I thought they would. They are crispy though so maybe with some nut butter I will like them.

Zevia Ginger Ale.

I bought a can yesterday and was surprised at how good it was then read the ingredients and saw that the main sweetener is erythritol....no wonder.

Today I picked up a four pack of bottles. They had both clear (no caramel color) and the usual color. I went for the one without, of course.

I'd buy it again even though I'm not a big soda drinker....summer is here.

two things I have recently enjoyed very much-

SF Teriyaki sauce sold by netrition: Seal sama brand. Just delicious for marinating sliced tofu and then baking. I add some ginger, hot chili, and then sprinkle with sesame seeds before baking. love the stuff.

Gem mango chipotle origami wraps. These are so great. they are 15 calories and maybe 2-3 carbs and make a wonderful sandwich wrap. My favorite thing is to spread one with some laughing cow cheese and then nuke a boca burger and put on it and wrap it all up. I can only find them on amazon, but they are really really good. They used to make a carrot ginger one that I liked even better, but right now they seem to be out of production.

Oh, I am curious about those wraps and will look into them.

I love that tofu and recently did an hour long bake with thinly sliced ('bout 16 from a pound) and the tofu was a nice firm texture.

La Tiera Taco Shells - 4 carbs each

La Tiera Taco Shells - 4 carbs each

There's a reason they are 4 carbs each.

I found these at my local HEB grocery store so I bought 10 boxes of them.
I wanted to buy them all, but I wasn't sure if they would keep.

I eat tacos once or twice a week and usually use the lc flour tortillas or use cheese taco shells.

First off, for taste, they are just like any other taco shell.
Size = very small, about half the size of Old El Paso taco shells - hence the lower carbs.
Also, they are super thin...they just break apart when you bite into them, but I found that putting a lettuce leaf around the outside will help hold it together a little better.
I'm attributing the thinness of them to the lower carb aspect too.

If you are really wanting that corn tortilla flavor, they will deliver, just don't expect to get full on 2-4 of these...you will either have to have a side dish or two or else eat them like chips for a taco salad.

But the taste is fine. I'm glad I didn't order them because I wanted to for several months...they just seemed overly expensive. I surely would have been disappointed if I had ordered these.

I love corn tortillas and hate the flour ones so this might be a winner. The lettuce leaf is a good remedy.

Thanks.

Simply 7 Quinoa Chips

Simply 7 Quinoa Chips

In a word, delicious.

They are light and crisp and shaped like sun chips.
They have 11 carbs for one ounce, a bit better than regular chips.

I ordered a bag from jet just to try. Its nice to have a little crunchy once in a while. I didn't even eat a whole ounce at one time, just about 5 or 6 chips and I was satisfied.
Now that would have never happened with tater chips, etc. I would have felt deprived if I only ate one ounce. I would have eaten half the bag of them, back in those days.

I recommend these to those who can afford the carbs and want a once in a while chip solution. And quinoa is good for you too.

I really have to watch for some of these alternative chips.

When I was visiting my family, I tried those pop-something (can't remember the name) potato chip.
First of all, when I picked one up there was no grease....What? They tasted great (better than the greasy ones) but potatoes are not likely to ever be something I will eat a lot of. Still, it didn't kill me to have a couple.

I noticed that TJ's soy chorizo won the customer choice award in the meat/meatless category and wondered if anyone here tried it.

I don't normally buy fake meat but TJ' breakfast patties ended up in my freezer.

I'm going to pick up some of this chorizo next trip.
The hub will eat anything that tastes good so it may take the place of some sausage products....unless it's too spicy for him.

Great Low Carb Bread Company Thin Sliced Bread

Great Low Carb Bread Company Thin Sliced Bread:

I have been eating on half a loaf for 2 weeks already. I generally eat one slice of it toasted with jam for breakfast, but not every day.

The other half loaf, I put in the freezer. Surprisingly, its filling even though its so thin. It has that odd taste that all their breads have, but as long as you put something on it, you don't taste it.

I haven't tried it any other way yet. If it ain't broke, don't fix it - is my motto. lol

Skninny Pop Popcorn

Skninny Pop Popcorn:

I got a bag of this yesterday and its simply light and delicious.

For 3 3/4 cups, its only 12 carbs.

For anyone missing popcorn, you could have some of this. It's really good.
I wish I would have gotten 2 bags instead of only one, but I'm always leary of new products.

Carb Counters Twice Baked Cornita Corn Crisps

Carb Counters Twice Baked Cornita Corn Crisps

First off, they are not crisps...not at all...a bit dry and crumbly but not crispy. And a lot thicker than any chip would ever be.

They taste like dry cornbread...focusing on the dry side.

I am thinking they might make some killer cornbread stuffing though.
I'll have to experiment.

They are only 3 carbs for nine of them...great carb wise.

I guess I expected them to taste more like fritos...waahh!!

I will find a way to use them up though besides eating them plain.

The popcorn sounds great. I think Costco had it last time I shopped. I'll check.

Those crisps sound awful. Thanks for the heads up.

Dave's Killer Bread Seed Bread

Dave's Killer Bread Seed Bread

I love this stuff. It's big slices and it might be too high carb for some people, but it's 12 carbs per slice and worth every carb.

The other types of Dave's Killer Bread had way too many carbs. I've always liked seed and nut type breads, but this is the bomb of them all for the carb count.

It's so good that I haven't even tried toasting it yet. I found it at Sprouts the other day. I had read about this bread on a clean food challenge that I joined.
