The Sugar Free ones do NOT have 15g of carbs... I'll check my label when I get home!

Canned coconut milk (low fat, but will OK in a pinch); wasabi mayo; nuts of all kinds, particularly Brazil nuts--an excellent source of selenium; grape seed and olive oils; Indian and Thai cooking sauces; whole milk yogurt and kefir; tea and coffee; and yes, their LC chocolates are excellent.

AAha! I subtract the sugar alcohols too. I have heard that the dark chocolate almonds (not SF) are very low in carbs too, I haven't been back to check yet. They are a special treat for me (when I remember to put them out of site) and one serving of the sugar alcohols at a time is ok for me.

Oh, dang! Do sugar alcohols not count? I'm new to all this. I tossed them for fear I'd eat too many of them. They were darn tasty!

They sell frozen bags of grilled eggplant and zucchini, marinated in olive oil and spices. Very flavorful and just 5g carbs. I love them.

Also, the Chile Lime Chicken burgers are sooooo good!

MissLori,
I happen to have both of those in my freezer but have yet to try. How to you eat the grilled eggplant and zucchini? Hot or cold or with anything else? Also with the chicken, I went to go cook them once but said they needed to be defrosted first so I was in a hurry so put them back in the freezer for another day. Once you defrost them , how long do you cook them for? I thought they would be good on a low carb tortilla with a slice of avocardo, tomato and a few sprigs of cilantro.

I just put the eggplant and zucchini in a microwave dish and nuked them for a few minutes and ate them hot as a side dish. The chicken patties can be cooked from frozen in maybe 10 minutes or so in a skillet. They thaw pretty quick. I thawed mine and cooked them in the skillet with a little oil for maybe 5 minutes. Delish!

I'm so glad to see this thread is still running. I LOVE trader Joes. Since beginning LC, I've discoverd a low sugar/low carb spaghetti sauce, Can't remember if it is 3 cheese or 4, lol. The carb eaters in my house like it, too. One day I walked in and found a huge tray of fresh blackberries, maybe equalled 4 pints for about $4. Avocados, nuts. I haven't been in lately, but earlier in the holiday season they had some special cheeses. One was a Welsh Cheddar with onions and shallots in it, and an Asiago soaked in red wine. Heaven. I also love their little rounds of goat milk brie.

I second the thumb's up on the seaweed snack, though it seems that people either love it or hate it, Nikixie. The ones that hate it are generally the ones who hear the name and say "yuck".

Would love to know how you get on with the Dreamfield's, cookwithme65. I've read about people either having a good or bad experience with that, too. Would you send me a pm and let me know?

I love seaweed with my sushi, but I tried this snack and threw it away. I was glad it was relatively inexpensive.

Another favorite at TJs is their Carnitas. It doesn't have a lot of spices in it, so is like pulled pork. Now I just need to find a good BBQ sauce that doesn't have a bunch of sugar in it.

Niki, I just stocked up on those on my trip last week. Had 6 now 5. I bought 3 regular and 3 in the wasabi flavor. I'm thinking about trying to use them in a chicken broth asian style soup. I think miso paste may have too many carbs. I need to experiment.

Low carb bbq sauce: it is called Wing It, found it at Ralph's on the bottom shelf. 4 net carbs! And yummy! They also have a fabulous zero carb buffalo wing sauce. Going to make bbq ribs this weekend.

I buy their Three Cheese spag sauce....it's the lowest carb one and tastes really good!

One thing I haven't seen mentioned yet is the kerrygold butter, yum! It's cheaper at costco, but for those who aren't costco members...

They also have these individual packages of sliced salami and cheese that can serve as a small meal and since it's small and packaged, I can just throw one in my purse in the morning.

And pesto sauce. I haven't checked the carb count, but I think it must be pretty low.

i love the frozen fancy berry medley (raspberries, blackberries, and blueberries). i simmer a bag in 1/2 cup of 100% pure pomegranate juice (also from TJ's), and use it to top full fat Greek yogurt.

i guess that's a treat for after induction. in the meantime, try their canned salmon with some sour cream, mustard, a little red onion, fresh ground black pepper, and some shredded extra sharp cheddar, and add some wilted baby spinach or frozen chopped spinach. i had that for dinner, and it makes my toes curl!

They also have some pretty good prepared meats that are lower carb. I think their pork roll has about 4-5 carbs, chicken lime patties, 2-3, etc. I don't eat these all the time but they are nice to have in the freezer for emergencies!

Do you mix this all together? Do you heat it up? That sounds delish.

Love the frozen rib roast when I can find it. Its grass fed. Also get frozen fish (sometimes marinated), smoked salmon, smoked trout (in a can and/or refrigerated), organic tomatoes, avocadoes, nuts ( almonds, pecans, walnuts). I also get the frozen Lamb Vindaloo and other Indian readymade dinners and throw out the rice. I love TJ's.

I've only gone to Trader Joe's on the East Coast, but I got luscious marcona almonds with olive oil and rosemary there, and also really good mousse-style pate in the deli/meats section.

Side note: Hi, Vanessa! I recognize your picture from your blog, which I've been enjoying reading--and have been enjoying your recipes. I'm also from the Minneapolis area.

I love, love, love roasted and seasoned seaweed snacks. The Trader's Joe's one was good, IMO, but my favorite brand is Korean, no added MSG, which I get at an Asian grocery store near my house. (I've been known to walk out carrying 4 packages of 6-pack snacks at a time.)

I love the brie bites! Little mini single serving brie rounds...though I dare you to eat just one! They come 5 to a pack I think. I also like their french cut green beans, pesto, and jars of olives in olive oil.
