    Nut cheese sounds just as bad as nut juice. :hilarious::hilarious::hilarious::hilarious:
    I do lurk from time to time to add items to my shopping list. :angelic:
    Has anyone tried the Tesco Tinga pasta on tofu? It's very good, actually I might add that to the list for this weeks shopping. :)

    Follow Your Heart Everything is always good!
    They have a restaurant I used to go to in Calif that was delicious! (market and cafe) And they have recipes on their site.
    Just hit recipes and the top and they have several categories. One of the oldest vegetarian health food market and cafe around and now the cafe is all vegan.
    https://followyourheart.com/recipe_category/featured/


    Daiya Foods
    Also makes a lot of excellent products!
    They also have several recipes on their site.

    Both these guys would have huge booths, well especially Daiya at the major trade show in the states and always sampled out all of their products. They usually would also make several dishes with their products like fried rice with their egg substitute or pizza with their cheese. Although Daiya makes 4 vegan pizza choices now. Daiya actually makes a huge variety of products.

    Hopefully you guys will get to discover their many products sometime soon! But you should enjoy their recipes!

    I haven’t tried either item yet, but since they are harder to find type items I thought I would post them.

    Good to Go Foods
    They have vegan hiking/backpacking meal options.
    Just add water to their meals. 8 different meals. They also have gluten free options.

    https://goodto-go.com/collections/food/vegan

    Then different company
    Good 2 Go Keto Vegan Snacks

    https://good2gosnacks.com/us/

    This has a US nutrition label so it says
    15 carbs, you minus 7 fibers and 5 erythritol sugars to get the 3 carbs total on the front of the item label.
    However as a type 1 you still need to count erythritol, I was taught to count it as half of what it says. As a normal insulin producing person sugar alcohols are supposed to metabolize so fast they don’t have to be accounted for per US guidelines as net carbs, but still listed under the carb section.

    I have been taking a small bag of Cheesies(crunchy popped cheese) for my lunch each day. They are very low carb and a nice snack. I order them from Amazon.

    Kay's Naturals makes pretzels, puffs, crackers in boxes and in one serving bags. Even yummy cookie bites! They are 15 carbs and 12 grams of protein usually in each bag. A pretty big variety and the one serving bags are a good portion. I haven't had the cheese ones but they were popular in our store, the only one I didn't like as much were the plain pretzels. My favorites were jalapeno mustard pretzels and cinnamon almond cookie bites.

    They carry them at a variety of internet sites, Amazon being one of them.

    Vegan Tofurky hickory smoked deli slices and Vegan Gardein stuffed turkey rolls.

    Both companies everything is vegan.
    I've met the chef that was creating the dishes for Gardein originally and he was very particular about what went into his food. They have grown fast and becoming very popular and now have over 50 products.
    And Tofurky has always been an excellent company. One of the originals and they've been around for 25 years and have really expanded with what they make.
