I spend a lot time shopping around for foods that are good on the Belly Fat Cure and Fast Track. Yesterday I was at Sprouts Farmers Market (located in California, Colorado, Texas and Arizona) and overheard this from two women shopping together:
"This is SO great! It doesn't have any calories, any fat, any carbs or sugar. It has NOTHING. It is so great! I don't know what it DOES have".
I immediately answered "It has sucralose, that's what it has". Mind you, they weren't talking to me.
They turned and stared at me like who the hell is she with their mouths open. And one finally said "Oh, right sucralose... it does have that, but it's really good". I scampered away to the next aisle, embarrassed that I couldn't hold my tongue and I'm sure they said "Who asked her anyways". And they were right, they weren't asking me.
Sprouts is a great source for hard to find specialty products including:
Nature's Hallow products, including jelly and syrups
Jay Robb protein powders and other stevia sweetened protein powders
Probiotics & other supplements
Clemmy's ice cream
Unsweetened almond, hemp, rice, coconut milks
Zevia, Hint water, Metromint, Activate
Coconut flakes and flour
Flax seed (ground, whole and oils)
Coconut oil and coconut water
Bulk nuts and grains
Many low carb breads and tortillas, including Ezekiel products
Remember these are not products the must have to do the Belly Fat Cure, they are not the mainstays of the diet for me. But they can be very difficult to find and a few are nice to have on hand. And if you run into a crazy lady reading labels on aisle 5, just wave and say "Hey!"... she means well.
