David Mendosa’s Quick Stuff from the Grocer

This entry is part 3 of 14 in the series Low Carb Pot Luck

David Mendosa’s “straight-from-the-store” offerings were part of a pot luck conducted by the Boulder Very Low Carb Diabetes Support Group, where we encouraged people to bring “tasting” size portions with no more than 5 grams carb in an actual serving, and smaller samples still for more tastings.  For a meal, you’d probably go for a larger serving.
