Resources for UnDiet Friendly Foods

In an Internet culture where link posting is pitifully indiscriminate The UnDiet wants you to know that the links on this page are carefully researched and only posted if deemed to be helpful or otherwise of interest to you, the discerning UnDieter. We routinely decline to trade links with sites seeking to post their links when we find that their site does not meet our specific requirements.

Annie Chun’s traditional Japanese udon soup bowls are all-natural, vegetarian, contain no MSG or preservatives.
They cook in just one minute and are packed in an Earth-friendly biodegradable bowl. Product of the USA.

Annie’s Homegrown has a wonderful variety of prepackaged meals, snacks, desserts, kid-friendly meals … Everything I’ve tried from Annie’s has been delicious.

Dixie Diner Summer fun can leave less time to prepare healthy and UnDiet conscious meals and this incredible site is packed full of completely healthy, and meat-free prepackaged meals. You’ll be amazed at what you can buy here! Take a cruise through the products pages just to experience a drop-your-jaw moment. One word of caution: they have a product called Trutina which says it has no bitter taste, and sorry to say – it’s not true. Check out the review below for Soy Rocks.

Soy Rocks: taste great, although have that slightly bitter taste from the Trutina sweetener (similar taste to Sweet ‘N Low). Although I’ve found that when I use these rocks with other foods the bitter taste is hidden. For instance I stirred them into a pudding and let it sit in the fridge overnight. The next day I had a delicious fudgy cake – the Soy Rocks had absorbed the moisture from the pudding.

Ethnic Grocer offers more than 20,000 ethnic food products. Also recipes for light versions of many favorite ethnic dishes.

Good Baker What can I say about the Good Baker dessert and pancake mixes except WOW! I can’t remember the last time I was this impressed with a food product. All of their products are low fat, cholesterol-free, with mostly organic ingredients, whole grain organic flours including whole soy flour. All ingredients comply with UnDiet guidelines including the organic evaporated cane juice used to sweeten their mixes. These mixes couldn’t be any easier to prepare, just add water and oil, pour in the pan and pop in the oven. Thirty minutes later – YUMMY chocolately delicious brownies. Note: the natural sugar used in this mix does raise your insulin level so you should only indulge in these goodies occasionally while in weight loss and not too frequently when in maintenance.

Hickory Farms has wonderful cheeses and meats. Take advantage of their free shipping to experiment with some new flavors or rediscover your old favorites. Send a dieting friend a fruit basket or a high protein dieter a beef and cheese basket.

Indian Harvest has the finest rice, grains and beans available to chefs – and now available to consumers! Their gourmet offerings include soups, salads, olive oil, chutneys, cookbooks, kitchenware, and samplers.

Kalyx Foods – natural and organic herbs, foods, spices, coffees & teas.

La Tortilla whole wheat, oat-fiber, fat-free tortilla that is only 3 carbs per tortilla (if you care about such things). You can order these on-line (or call 1-800-446-1516) by the case (they do freeze well) or most supermarkets carry this brand. If you’ve tried regular white flour fat-free tortillas & didn’t like them, try these. They taste much better.

Miss Roben’s foods for those allergic to wheat, gluten, & dairy; also many egg-free foods. Read ingredient lists carefully; many contain white rice powder (an UnDiet no-no), cornstarch (which I caution you to use infrequently) & some do contain dairy. Their product list is too extensive to go through here but I did go over the bread products & the Potato Bread Mix & Mock Rye Bread are good UnDiet breads. All the pastas except for those with sauces are good choices. They also have a Soft Pretzel Mix (under Pizza Pie Crust & More) that looks terrific! All of the cookie mixes contain refined sugar – alas, it isn’t a perfect world. UPDATE: as of January 29th, 2013 we could no longer find Miss Roben’s online. If any of our readers can give us the 411 on them please let us know in the Comments section.

Nature’s Path is a good resource for healthy, whole grain baking mixes, breakfast foods, snacks …

About admin

I've always abhorred the idea that the only way to lose weight is to starve yourself, eat foods that are foreign to you, or gulp down special weight loss potions. I've proved that it is not only possible, but it's easy and fun to lose weight The UnDiet way. The UnDiet is extremely flexible, allowing you to make deviations based on your personal taste, the choices confronting you at any given time, your mood, your cooking skills and the time you have available. A gourmet cook can be happy with The UnDiet as well as those who don't know or care what saute means. You can eat out at restaurants and parties and still not fall off The UnDiet. You can eat olive oil, butter, cream, meat, mayonnaise and still not fall off The UnDiet. You can eat until you're full and still lose weight, once you've mastered the basic principles of The UnDiet. So dig in to this blog, subscribe to the newsletter for lots of extras not published on the blog and get ready for the Kindle book coming soon.

We want to hear from you :)
