Jumping on the bandwagon - it's a good thing

Real Canadian Superstore now has a whole line of convenience foods that are trans-fat free, relatively low in calories, etc. etc. Good for them. I've always been a fan of the President's Choice stuff. There are some exceptions, but generally their packaged foods are tasty and don't have excessive amounts of guck in them.

I think this is less about new products than it is about rebranding existing ones, which is fine - the whole point is giving ordinary consumers an easy way to identify trans-fat-free, relatively healthy products. The ancient grains crackers are especially tasty and healthy.

Now, if only there was a Superstore (and not that crappy warehouse thing on Quadra) closer than Langford....

This isn't about the bandwagon. I just wanted to make sure this comment got your attention.

How does dim sum fit into the No-S diet? The plates are SOOOO teeny that you could starve to death if you didn't have seconds!?

Dim sum is something you do on saturdays or sundays, and is therefore exempt from all concerns.

Nifty huh???
