We used to have to stock up on Trader Joe's goodies when we visited family, but Trader Joe's opened a store nearby last year, and I'm sure you can imagine my delight at being able to stop by any time I need to get something! It is conveniently located near our church, so yesterday we stopped by with long list in hand, and I did a bit of shopping for the week plus picked up a number of TJ staples. I like to buy some extra and store in a little food area in the basement...
Note: (I hesitate to recommend prepared foods to you, as each person has to decide what they are willing to try and should be careful to make sure they are legal and are tolerated well. But I really want to share what works for me, so you might be able to add something that would make the diet easier for you. I have to be honest - I don't always write or contact manufacturers to verify legality. But with stores like Trader Joe's, who have already stated to me in writing that their products only contain ingredients listed on the label, and with so much awareness of special diets these days, I personally feel comfortable trying items that look legal. I'm very sensitive to illegals, and have been on the diet so long I can tell what is bothering me, and it doesn't cause any big problems for me...so if I notice any symptoms I just don't eat that item again. If you ever what to write to a company and verify something is legal, use this letter we've put together for you.)
P.S. I'll be adding a category to my posts "SCD Guinea Pig" with new products I've tried...
