    Default Best Packaged Food Options?


    Hey all!

    Working on some research & wondering what you think are some of the best
    packaged food options for diabetics?

    What do you wish there was?

    What's hard to find?

    Fill me in!
    Thanks in advance,
    K

    Seriously there is no one answer. IMO the best food for anyone is not a
    packaged food. However there are some things such as bagged salad, celery
    with peanut butter, carrots with Ranch dip, apple slices, single serve
    cheeses, mostly natural things like that. Things that would be good for
    most people.

    But as diabetics there is not one diet that we all follow. So there is no
    one food that is going to work for us.

    I don't really wish there was a packaged food and I don't know what is hard
    to find. I prefer to eat whole foods for the most part.

    I do buy some packaged things but most are off limits for me. I do also
    have food allergies so that right there limits things severely. There are
    sooo many extra things that are put into packaged foods that really don't
    need to be there, IMO. My daughter puts things back on the shelf if she
    flips over the package to look at the ingredients and the list is too long.
    That usually means they added a bunch of crap that shouldn't be there!

    Actually, yesterday we did have a problem. I won't get into the whole story
    but bottom line we had to go to Subway to get food for my parents for
    dinner. I refuse to eat their food so my daughter and I had to come up with
    something for us to eat. I actually wasn't hungry at all. I had already
    eaten two meals and two meals is all I ever eat. So my body had enough food
    for the day, but... I still had to take my insulin and pills and I needed
    to eat. I picked up a small thing called a pico de gallo wrap. Flipped it
    over to see the carb count. 90g! That is twice the amount I can eat in a
    meal. And I wouldn't have wanted to eat only half because it was so small.
    Yeah, half really would have been perfect seeing as how I wasn't hungry.
    But the other half would have gone to waste because it *was* so small. I
    never would have been able to eat it later as a meal and not have been super
    hungry.

    This particular store wasn't a large one and didn't have any of the prepared
    foods we normally eat. So we opted for some stuffed potatoes from the deli
    counter. My daughter also got some salad bar but the offerings on it were
    pathetic, IMO and I didn't get any.

    My daughter took one bite of the potato and said I wouldn't like it. She
    was right! I don't know if they put sour cream in it or what but it had a
    horrible sour taste to me. I couldn't eat it. Luckily the skin part seemed
    to be free of seasonings so I just ate that.

    We got home and I still wasn't hungry but I knew I needed protein and some
    more carbs. I found those microwave popcorn bowls on sale B1G1F. I
    normally don't like that stuff and prefer to pop my corn from scratch. But
    it looked appealing so I stuck a bowl in the microwave and went off to do
    something else. And then it sort of burned. So it wasn't good. I forced
    myself to eat a small amount of it and then the remains of some cottage
    cheese in the open container. Turns out it was the right amount of carbs
    because my BG was fine before bed.

    I suppose if there were a packaged food that would appeal to me it would be
    a food with protein in it, little to no carbs, no meat, no dairy, no eggs,
    no soy, and no nuts. What would that leave? Well, chia seeds but they need
    to be gelled. So maybe some pre-gelled chia seeds? But those only keep for
    a few days. Pumpkin seeds? Sunflower seeds? Ah but you can already get
    those.

    What I make myself and package for later consumption.

    > What do you wish there was?


    I make what I want.

    The packages in the back of the freezer.

    Commercial packaged food is generally pretty lousy for diabetics.
    You'll probably make money because there are many ill-informed and/or
    stupid people out there, but I hope not.

    i was appalled at the prepared foods???? in the grocery store...........
    the day i found pomegranate (sp) seeds that had been stripped from the
    hull and the skin removed i thought i had seen about everything!!!!!!!!!
    not ONE of the folks near the display would touch them when i asked,
    gee, i wonder.... how sterile is the equipment used to deseed these, how
    much pesticide from the husk gets into this? and how clean ARE those
    bags they put the seeds in???

    at least i can use soap and water on a pomegranate and pull it apart
    MYSELF and SEE what i'm eating!

    oddly enough, the next day, i ran into a Uni Master's student who was
    surveying (in another grocery store) to see "what do consumers buy
    today" ?????

    i think we are heading for a complete reversal of all this "instant food'

    uggh

    give me "made by my own hands" any day!

    I'd want packaged low-carb foods. Possibly with a small amount of some
    higher-carb dessert added.
