Hi Rosebud: I was wondering if you might send me a PM so I could email directly (I can't PM myself yet)... we're travelling to OZ in March and I'd like to ask some questions about Brisbane.
Regards

Hi Goodnfast,

I'm afraid you can neither send nor receive private messages until you have made 25 posts.

How about popping into my journal to ask your questions? Or you can start a thread here in the Aussie/NZ forum asking about Brisbane. The several Brisbanites here as well as myself I'm sure will be happy to answer your questions.

Default Thank you

Thank you Rosebud for posting those aussie sites. They will be very helpful!! I love the sites where you can just put in your food and they tell you how many carbs are in it. And the recipes that I looked at sound so nice, especially the sweets : ) I'm really looking forward to start cooking some of this food.

Thanks again.

Hi Rosebud, just found two sites that might be of interest to Kiwis & Oz.
Some of the stuff was a bit ??? but one actually had a carb counter on food in NZ which I'm pretty sure is also common Oz foods as well? Anyway might be of help to some I hope.
Cheers, Kiwifriend.

Hi Kiwifriend,

Unfortunately both of those sites were simply selling stuff, so I've removed the links. Even the carb counter was for purchase. My idea here was for links to informational sites.

If anyone is looking for a carb counter, there is the one on this site (at the right side of the screen), Fitday or Diet Club. If you want one that is not online, most newsagents have calorie counters that also include carb counters.

Hi Rosebud, I did realise they were trying to sell product thats why I said some was a bit ???? but I thought the carb counter that already had products listed that you just look up might of been of interest. You didn't have to pay to look or anything, just choose what catagory you wanted to look under and a list of products comes up. Oh, well sorry bout that. :-)

If they just order this stuff in from the USA, doesn't that mean it gets through customs? I mean, why not just order it from the source? I've seen a website that sells 15 of those atkins bars for $23 USD, breakfast cereal for $3.90 a box and other great prices on atkins products.

If this stuff actually DOES get through customs (because from the above quote it doesn't sound like they put huge orders in and keep ALL items in stock), then I'm just going to order it myself!

I've been buying the Atkins Empower bars on http://ebay.com.au - they usually go for about AU$2 each, plus minimal postage if you buy a few at once. Cost me $35 incl post for 15 bars over the weekend. Choccie for Easter!

There's a lot of great stuff on the market in the US, but with our restrictive Customs laws in Australia, I'm not sure most of it would (or should) be allowed in, especially by post. Every time you come into the country from overseas, you have to hand over anything containing honey, fruit, nuts etc. So my guess is anything containing those ingredients shouldn't be legal to buy in directly from the US. Although it's certainly a lot cheaper than buying it through some local retailers!

I want to try out as much of the US prepared low-carb vego products as I can to review for my site http://www.bellaonline.com/Site/vegetarian - I guess I'll have to find out the skinny on what foodstuffs CAN be brought in by post. I know there are even laws about what you can send between other states and WA! I got an eBay package addressed to me impounded once because the seller had used an old fruit-box as packaging. Apparently that's a risk for infestation by Coddling Moth or something.

*sigh* Sometimes it's really annoying being in the most remote city in the world! Having the internet and seeing all these great products makes it worse

And speaking of choccie:

Lindt 85% cocoa Dark Extrafine Chocolate. Total carbs 19% (sugar 13%) but soooo rich that two squares (quarter of a 100g block) is enough for a real treat. It's available at Coles etc, for about $2.99. Amazing choc hit for the $ and carbs. If it's not sweet enough, someone on the empower foods board suggested chewing a Splenda tab at the same time

BTW, Splenda tabs and granules are both now available at my local Coles. Hopefully more low-carb products will start to appear here over the next year or two...

Try breaking one portion of lindt chocolate into 4 and popping it into your mouth with a brazil nut. You get four little treats for a very low carb count.
Cheers Delia

U-Can-Bake-It stores in Perth also have a couple of lo-carb bread mixes.

One is called Lo-carb, but sometimes it's hard to get. The other is European Grain Mix.

Rod, the owner of the shop in Morley (cnr Walter Road and Coode St) is very helpful.
