Trader's Joe Fat Free List
« on: March 03, 2013, 10:38:37 pm »
I'm a Trader Joe's fanatic.  Love that store. 

I thought of watchtv and his search for fat free snacks when I learned about this list:

(Not all of these are healthy of course, but some are...)

If you are on medications or have a medical condition, always check with your doctor first before making any lifestyle changes or taking new supplements.  And low testosterone is a medical condition.

not what I have in mind

1 I look less for fat free now, and more for low fat, no saturated fat
2  As much as I do love links to cruddy sites.  >:(. that list is not fat-free as the *** fine print tells us**
Careful fat intake is intelligent and can be achieved through moderation and inclusion of products that contain
.5 grams of fat per serving or less (aka, Fat Free). We carry a selection of Fat Free Products that
make perfecting this art form a pursuit of enjoyment.

the things on that list might have at least .5grams of fat, likely saturated or transfats...I know enough Math to know  .5 =/= 0

Trader Joes/ Sprouts/Natures pantry..Ive been to all these "health food" stores and Im never clear on what makes the food they offer, "healthy".  Some of the food is, it's organic and unprocessed, but it's also mixed in with food high in fat, transfat/saturated fat. sugar, excitoxins,,,,,,,, so going to these stores is a pricey way to get some of the same, yet cheaper, stuff from online/other stores.

I understand what you are saying, but, actually, Trader Joe's doesn't really bill itself as a health food store.  And they do have a number of great non fat items - I know cuzz I eat them regularly and I am talking about the packaged good.

And I don't care what they do as long as they carry high quality organic produce at about half the price of any other store that I have seen out there. 

God bless them each and every one...

LOL
I do agree, I dont have a trader joes near me, I have a Nature's Pantry and they do have some organic veggies/fruit that the local supermarkets also have..BUT they also have organic,BPA-free tomato sauce/paste and a wide variety of vegetarian foods(TOfu pizza) and other gluten free products
I laugh when I browse through the freezer aisle, going from  Tofu chicken, organic milk, vegetarian pizza, gluten free bread, BEN AND JERRYS PHISH FOOD
I laugh because when I've asked employees what the requisite to have a food in the store, they dont know.
Seeing some foods being sold in the store, like B&J ice cream makes me think of opening a FIRST AID kit and finding a stash of Meth...
I'm glad the 1st aid kit is there, but why does it have meth in it?  :o

Yes, that's a good point:  I mostly by bean-based fat free stuff because, as you know, I try to avoid wheat and soy.  So good points...
