Here we have the infamous “cauliflower crust”. Immediately makes the product lower calorie, healthier, and all around aura enhancing right?
Turn that single serve pot pie around and we see it has a WHOPPING 810 calories, 40g of fat, 86g of carbs, and 26g of protein.
To take this buffoonery even further and make even less sense than a screen door on a submarine is a crust made with cauliflower AND wheat. Like WTF…if you happen to be gluten-free, normally cauliflower products could be a decent option for you, but not here. It’s as if the product designers have no idea what they are doing.
What’s annoying is when companies jump on a bandwagon to make money, giving zero f&*ks in regards to proper application. So at Target the cauliflower pie will cost you $2.99 USD. At the same Target 2 regular pies will run you $1.98 USD. Friggin $1 LESS expensive. Unless you have a VERY SPECIFIC need for specialty foods or ingredients, overpaying for nonsense doesn’t make a lot of sense for your diet or wallet.
When you’re trying to make better lifestyle choices and improve your diet, these types of marketing tricks can easily derail your progress and choices, if you don’t know how to properly read labels and are easily enticed by slick marketing buzzwords. It’s always best to know the context that some of these ingredients or marketing terms are used in and if they pertain at all to you. More often than not, they won’t at all. Make sure you take the time and educate yourself on what’s out there and how to sniff out the BS from the real thing!
