Here’s what I shop for:

Stevia is 300x sweeter than sugar. You only need 1-2 pinches at a time. $10. Lasts 3-4 months.

Did you know that Stevia helps protect your teeth from cavities just like Xylitol? Read more here.

The first drop… delicious. The second drop… “Ppssht this isn’t that bad.” Five seconds later. Regretting you took that second drop and wishing you had a bottle of ketchup and mustard to help you put out that fire like Lloyd and Harry.

These aren't necessarily healthy... but, I'm Korean and can't resist the seaweed wrapped crackers. A bag of this is usually in my passenger seat to add to the one-man rave I have during every traffic jam.

Go for the unsweetened ones, they're still really sweet and addictive. Just make sure to floss.

These are much better than the regular cranberries.

85% cacao. A Buck Fitty. Can't beat that. I have a few pieces every day.

Skip $2 Buck Chuck. Any TJ brand wine besides that is nice. I like the Coastal Zinfandel. $5.
If you do end up with $2 Buck Chuck. Open it, then let it sit for a day. It tastes much better on Day 2 from my experience.
