Low Carb Market?

So I see a TON of cool low carb breads, cake mixes, and products in general online but can't seem to find more than one or two per store. Anybody know where to shop for this stuff or do I have to order it online? The idea of placing a weekly order online for cereal and bread doesn't really appeal.

  1. There's a low-carb store on Rt 114E in Peabody a few blocks down from the exit off Rt 1N on the right by Guitar Center. I've never been, but I'd be curious to know how it is. Also, if you haven't seen them, Joseph's makes great low-carb lavash, tortillas and pitas usually available in the deli section of every supermarket.

      Thanks! I'll have to take a trip out there some time and check it out.

          Thanks for the website. I'll have to give it a try. It looks like a nice sized little store.

            Foxspirit: I have shopped at My Low Carb Life in Danvers on 114 a number of times. Their prices are NOT for the feint of heart but I've found when you are searching for anything with a dietary restriction, no place is! The store carries a brand "Walden Farms" which is calorie/sugar/carb/gluten-free and I've been amazed at how good these taste. I have the pancake syrup and more than a few salad dressing in my fridge. I have to stick to a diabetic diet and Walden Farms items have given me some actually good-tasting products so not often available to a diabetic. The only other place I might recommend is Trader Joe's, if you have one near you. They have quite a few low-carb choices in many areas of the store, but, again, some are not budget-friendly. I'm sure that many other people on this board can offer other options. I wish you the best in your hunt for low-carb options -- it does take some searching! Page

              Hi. Thanks for the rec. I will try Walden Farms. I have a TJ near me but it doesn't sell much in the way of low carb options. I was hoping for something like some low carb breading or pancake mix. I don't mind the prices if I can find it.

          I think the craze is over. Many of those types of stores went out of business.

          1. re: Prav

            it's been replaced by gluten-free and those products are everywhere.
