Great Buys at Netrition?

Are there any great vegetarian foods that you have found at Netrition?

I'm looking for some great ideas for work and home. I'm gone from the house 12 hours a day on weekdays. We have a microwave, a toaster, and an intermittently-working toaster oven at work for heating things, if that helps.

My typical diet is usually veggies, limited fruits like berries, limited cheese/dairy type of products, and sometimes shrimp or tilapia. I'm not opposed to eating flax or nuts or eggs but have not incorporated any lately. I don't know if that info is helpful.

I have just gone with basics for now because I don't know what I'm doing. Any suggestions are appreciated!!

Thanks!!
Kat

I know this won't be much help, but I use the DaVinci's syrups for flavoring a lot.

I have tried other things in the past, but it's been a few years since I've placed an order.

I usually find nuts and flax seeds locally.

The shipping rate on Netrition is great though and the orders come in pretty fast.

I keep a running list of things that I want to try from Netrition, but haven't ordered anything lately.

Most of the time, I get excited about new products, but wait and see what everyone else posts about their experiences using a new or different product.

I am one that doesn't care for the carbquick stuff at all. Many people love it, but it has a funky taste to me in everything I made with it.

Thanks, Nigel! I wondered about the Carbquick. I've just kept thing simple to this point but definitely feel the need to mix it up a bit. I need some variety.

Thanks for sharing so much of your information in so many of the threads here! I've enjoyed your posts!!

Thank you and welcome to the forum.

Sometimes it gets pretty slow around here, but hopefully more people will join up and post more often.

If you check the recipe suggestions thread and do a search, I think there are other threads on stuff that people order from Netrition.

Thanks for the warm welcome!! I did notice that some of the "newer" posts were from a while ago. Maybe we will see more people stopping in...

I have been running across people lately who have changed their WOE to vegetarian or vegan. They volunteered the information before I even said anything about my WOE. Pretty funny!

I took many suggestions from your product reviews thread when I was shopping today so I'm pretty excited to try some new foods here over the next several days.

I'll try to peek in over here pretty often.

Agree. I have a bag of Carb-quick still using up fridge space and I can't bear to throw it out. -Still hoping one day I'll find a use for it. I'm so glad others in my predicament like it, but I can taste that 'undertaste' in everything I made. Plus, for biscuits I could never make them rise. I'm doing almond flour now and making a decent 'bread loaf' with the addition of orange or lemon extract and tweaking the recipe each time I make it. Maybe one day I will actually have a 'new' recipe to share!

Yeah, I couldn't get past the twang of the carbquick either and I tried everything that was suggested, even adding in vanilla...I just didn't like that taste.

I have ordered twice from Netrition in the last 2 months to try some new stuff.

I got the Great Low Carb Bread Company bread, bagels, hot dog buns, and hamburger buns, & pizza crusts. The pizza crusts work for me so I ordered more on the second order I made.
Also got Thin Slim Hamburger buns, hot dog buns, and bagels. These taste the best of the two brands.

Then I got oat fiber to make the BTF mix and a couple of different lc pancake mixes. I tried New Hope MIlls brand and it's pretty good, made fluffy pancakes.

I also got a couple of lc pastas. I tried Ciao pasta and it never got soft enough to eat...kind of was like rubber bands..but I haven't given up on it.
I also got Atkins so I will try that later on and write a review on it.

I have a thread going here about products that people have tried so I generally post there after I try something new to me.
