That occurred to me before I clicked "post" but I thought only I would have stopped to that level :) glad we are all on the same page.

It's all crack to me! Well most nuts and nut butter are crack to me! I was actually going to pop open my raw unsalted crunchy last night but alas it needs to be returned for a new jar. Although I did ponder taking the risk of Salmonella.

What do you eat when you don't know what you want?

The a safe no-risk meal - usually ground turkey or chicken with broccoli and some random cheese I grab out of the fridge AKA what I've been eating for weeks :)

"That feeling is symptomatic of catastrophically low blood sugar."

There are many more things in life that affect appetite.

Attention all Trader Joe Shoppers!

That wasn't the discussion. Yes swordfish has mercury, we were discussing a completely separate issue of swordfish but thanks for that health alert :)

Solution-don't buy them

Nope but it's not necessarily healthier. Marginally better than regular sugar since it contains trace nutrients and has a slightly lower GI but still loaded with fructose and mostly empty calories.

I guess not. Swordfish is still in the case at least in MD.

Good thing I don't drink :) wine stores that serve are open Sundays so for the last minute football needs most can find something. Thanksgiving to New Year's though...Sundays are a go for all stores;)

Yes I've bought the frozen swordfish. My store carries some fresh fish- haddock, tilapia, farm raised salmon, scallops.

It's less expensive than other stores for the same quality tuna.

Good to know. I always passed on the TJS 4 pk because they were so small but I'll take small over awful! I've noticed the Peruvian avocados actually look different recently - different shape as well as when unripe they are much greener but with dark black spots and darken in this odd non-uniform way. Good to know, I'll stop wasting money on them.

Farmhouse Rules--a new show on Food Network

Your comment was people need to lose weight...no shit. How is that relevant to this discussion?

Farmhouse Rules--a new show on Food Network

True but are you saying weight should be a discriminatory factor as to whether someone can host a tv show?

Attention all Trader Joe Shoppers!

It is so weird when I walk into stores there and there's alcohol :) I remember as a kid growing in va even the WaWa had a pretty good selection. Also no liquor stores open on Sunday in Baltimore.

I have given up as well. Even when soft at the stem, inside they are either hard or brown and streaked already. I've been wasting money every week on the family pack but had to give up. I didn't happen to look at the source last week and they were from Peru.

I personally like the tuna in water they sell which is the best price I've seen elsewhere though I'm a "tuna in water" girl. Just FYI for others who might be looking for tuna.

I think they have two spinach dips IIRC, interested to know which OP tried.

I often eat them plain with mustard or hot sauce but love to mix with either avocado or egg or wrap in a lettuce leaf with any type of dressing or just regular olive oil and vinegar. A favorite is sardines mashed with avocado and pickled onions.
