The UK Shopping List

food

(Drew Says "Eat the Salt, you damned stinking Keto ape" Hardcore Label Licka ) #1

Hi UK Dudes. I’ve set this up so we in the UK can start a list of the good food we find and help one another to get to the good stuff at the best price.

So the rules are: Photos of the product and label and where you bought it and price.
Please keep the chat to a minimum as this is a shopping list not a chatroom.

NO Keto GASBAGGERS :pleading_face: You know who you are, yes takes one to know one :crazy_face:


:uk: New UK forum Category :uk:

Sainsbury’s, Harlow, £2.20

Church’s butchers Epping,Essex http://www.churchsbutchers.co.uk/


Church’s Grass feed Ribeye with fat cap fed on grass all the way. £20 for these two.

Both the Wine £3.99 and the Soup £1.19 come from Lidl they only have the Fish soup in on French week so I just buy a case when it’s in.

Sainsbury’s in Penge
Friday afternoons - a lot of reductions - more than most supermarkets.
But I guess they’ll get their act together and we’ll have to be aware of another supermarket!!

20% fat mince from M&S £3 per kilo… bargain

As you can see I have some in my freezer!

More from good old J.J.

Sainsbury’s 99% Beef Burgers and Quarter Pounders Both at Around £2.50 per box in the frozen section.

KEEP an eye out! they also do a BAD one with the same typeface and branding but with RED text!

ONLY go for the ones with the BROWN coloured text.

I like Waitrose for lettuce.
Which are not more expensive than in other supermarkets - even though Waitrose has that reputation.
But I find each lettuce is bigger and lasts longer.
So better value all round.

Great idea. I’m based in sw16. When I’m feeling lazy I get Daylesford organic bone broth from Ocado

I have a problem with firms that have no info about ingredients or where they source the pigs on their website just a lot of pig puns. They strike me as the sort of firm that are only interested in how they look “hipster” and not much about the quality of the product ingredients.
I will be looking for a pack in my local supermarket to see just what is in it and report back on my findings.

From their website.
“We’re not ones for big, gushy value statements, but we’ve got our three simple rules that we live each day by. Do great things. Have some fun. Don’t be a dick.
Our piggin’ mission is to share our love of this indulgent porky goodness with our army of snafflers, delivering awesome flavoured porky snacks worldwide.”

The problem is that hipster image sells, detailed product/ingredient traceability through their supply chain doesn’t. It only appeals to people like you and me… and unfortunately we are still a niche :slight_smile:

I did trawl thru their website last night, somewhere they say they are using Danish pigs, have plans to use UK ones, but currently, the Danish ones were better.

There is also nutrition information on the individual flavour sections, some are <1g per 100g, others are between 3-5g per 100g

Just to be evenhanded here’s some more processed shite

Tomorrow I’m collecting an order of meat from my mum’s butcher in Spalding.
2 brisket joints, rolled, with all the fat - each to cost £15/20
3 square feet of pork skin
1 black pudding
3 lambs hearts
3 pigs hearts
A big bag of beef bones.
1 gammon joint
If I can navigate how to post a photo I will.

‘Snaffling’ scratchings are normally very high in carbs compared to some other brands. Too high for me anyway.

Hi PatNotFat I’d ask about the black pud my old son as it may well contain something like this,
JJ’s is one of the best I’ve found keto wise but it’s still a no no for me :disappointed_relieved:

But the rest sounds lovely, what time do you need me to pop over to help you out :+1: Matey mate mate :rofl::joy::rofl::joy::rofl::joy::pig:
