station in greater Wellington area
Cadbury's Lite Chocolate
7.1g carbs per 100g - available in most supermarkets - (this is sweetened
with NutraSweet???? and can cause problems on Low Carb)
Lindt excellence dark chocolate with 70% cocoa
solids (French). very rich and a quick fix to choc cravings. available
in 35gm (8 squares) bars and contain 32% carbs or 11.2g per bar which
makes each square 1.4g each. I usually have a cpl of squares a day to
satiate my sugar/choc needs as I find all artificial sweeteners very
chemically tasting. Great to keep in the hand bag as even if you get
carried away and eat the whole bar, it is not going to throw low carbing
out too much. retail at approx $1.30 so similar in price to most other
chunky-size choc bars. (Available in Wgtn at the snack shop next to STA
Travel in Cuba Mall (Ghuznee St end). Lindt also do large 100g bars
which I know some New Worlds stock. Only the 70% cocoa solid bars are
low carb. price at about $3.95 per bar)
Chocolat Stella Organic 70% cocoa solids Swiss chocolate.
Another rich bitter sweet choc (not as sweet as Lindt) with the
advantage of being organic. They make other types of chocolate but
once again the low carb is the high cocoa solids one. (This is
stocked at Island Bay New World in Wellington but many of the New
World supermarkets stock some of the Chocolat Stella range and
retail for approx $3.95 per 100gm bar)

Weight Watchers Apricot Jam
- sweetened with cyclamate and saccharine ???? - check label though
as some have changed - bought at countdown. 2.0g carb but 1.5 is fibre.
Weight watchers mousse - sweetened with aspartame???? - I make this
with 1/2 soy and 1/2 water as it brings the carbs down by 1/2.
Gluten Flour from Bin Inn, but you can get it from a few supermarkets.
It's from Healtheries, and is in a box. I just buy it from Bin Inn
(about $7 a kilo, compared to 500g for $5-something for the Healtheries
brand). The gluten should be about 70-75% protein, the one from Bin Inn
definitely is, and I'm sure the Healtheries brand is too. It works out
to about 24g carbs for 1 Cup. American recipes call it "Vital Wheat
Gluten" or similar.
Tips from Allen
Blue & Parmesan Dip <1g per 100g.
Crispbreads, many flavours, lowest carb is 9 grain at <3 digestible
carbs each cracker, no trans fat.
Asparagus in spring water, 2.5g per 100g.
Co Asian Soy & Sesame Vinaigrette, 1.4g per 25ml serve.
Seafood snacks (Herring in lemon & cracked pepper) 0.67g per 100g
(source of Omega 3 and milder taste than sardines).
flavoured Tuna from 8.7g per 100g for Tai red curry to 4.9g for
lemon pepper, and 2.9g for smoked. I occasionally have half a 185g
tin on my lunch salad instead of ham, or chicken.
Mushrooms sliced in sauce 3.9g per 100g.
Potato bake Garlic & Rosemary 4.1g per 100g. Use as sauce for
cauliflower, or vegetable bake.
no added sugar 99% fat free ice cream Chocolate & Berry Fusion
flavours. Woolworth’s. Berry fusion 14.4g per 100g. Sweetened with
Cola sweetened with Splenda, Pak’n’Save, New World. Best tasting
diet cola I've found. I can't taste any artificial chemical
aftertaste like I can with Diet coke and Pepsi max. 0.36g per 355ml
can. Cheap, approx $6.00 per dozen at Pak’n’Save.
Jok n Al
Sauces at New World, and Bin Inn. my favourites are Mint sauce 2g
per 30ml, Chilli pepper sauce 4g per 30g
something to serve your curry, casserole or stir-fry on, try
pureeing some cooked cauliflower, mix in a tablespoon of creme
fraiche or cream, an egg, and some crushed garlic, salt & pepper. It
can almost pass as garlic mashed spud, but the texture isn't as
smooth. One recipe I read had a leek as well, but I haven't tried
