Diabetes–Walden Farms 0 Cal, 0 Carbs, Fat Free, Gluten Free, Sugar Free Products

Saturday, March 30, 2013

Walden Farm products are good for everyone-not only diabetics! I originally bumped into their salad dressing when shopping. The tag that states 0 Calories, 0 Carbs, 0 Sugar, Gluten Free, Fat Free caught my attention. I bought a bottle of the Raspberry Vinaigrette. It was a bit too sweet for my taste but I did like it. Next time I bought the Creamy Blue Cheese---now this one I loved!! I also bought one of the Ranch dressings, also liked it. They have 22 varieties of salad dressings—there has got to be one that you will love. When I decided to do a series of posts on foods for diabetics I went to their website. Imagine my surprise when I saw they sell a whole lot more then just salad dressing which is all they sell in the supermarket where I shop! So, I did some shopping on-line. I received all the items and they were certainly packed well—all these products come in glass jars (which can be recycled or re used!!).

Here is what I ordered:

Chocolate Dip (is a bit bitter for my taste but then I like WHITE chocolate)
Marshmallow Dip (LOVED it)
Ketchup (have not tried yet)
Amazin’ Mayo Salad & Sandwich Spread (have not tried yet)
Whipped Peanut Spread (a bit oily for my taste-but no oil in there)
Tomato & Basil Pasta Sauce (have not tried yet)
Chocolate Syrup Single Serve Packets (again a bit bitter for me)
Creamy Blue Cheese Dressing (I LOVE IT)
Apricot Fruit Spread (have not tried yet)
French Onion Dip (not enough onion flavor for my taste)

Sorry-no pictures-I still have not figured out how to get pictures from my cell phone to my desk top!!

I am planning on attempting to use the Mayo on chicken breasts to see if it works the same as regular mayo (put mayo on chicken breast then bread then bake). The pasta sauce I will try with a side dish of pasta. I will be mixing the ketchup and mayo together then adding horse radish for a fish dip. A PB&J using the peanut butter spread and Apricot Spread. I didn’t find any of the no sugar ice cream at my supermarket but I did find one made with Almond Milk. Not too crazy about it (the ice cream made from Almond Milk) but the Chocolate Syrup and Marshmallow Fluff made it taste much better!!

You can find the ingredients of any of their products (most start with purified water, have something called vegetable fiber and all use Splenda) and the nutritional chart for each on their website. Copy/Paste this link http://www.waldenfarms.com/nutrition_facts and then click on the product(s) you would like to know about. Almost every one of these products has sodium-so if you are watching that-please check!!

There is lots of information on their website including recipes. http://www.waldenfarms.com/index.html

I purchased these products-I did receive a discount on the purchase. All opinions expressed are my own honest opinions. For more information please check my Disclosure Statement.

I love blue cheese dressing! I can't wait to try this version and see if I can substitute it for my regular, calorie-laden one.

I love the fact the these foods are becoming so much more easier to find and purchase now. Love the sound of the apricot fruit spread.

I haven't seen these products before. I am currently on WW and am guessing the point count would be very small. I am going to try to find some. I love marshmallow stuff and the cream sounds awesome.

I am hoping that I won't get diabetes, my mom is diabetic and I can see how she suffers from not being able to eat what she wants and poking her fingers every day..
