Caribbean delights Jamaican Patty
Caribbean delights Jamaican Patty aka Pound ah salt
So I decided for lunch a change of pace was needed from regular cold cuts sandwiches, to something more “Islandy”. so cruising the isles of Costco, I cast my eyes on the Caribbean Food Delights Jamaican Style Beef Patty, thought to myself hmmm these might be a cool alternative. So I checked out the price, thought ehhhh not bad, then picked up some of these bad boys for lunch. Costco had them on sale, box of 10 for a reasonable price, so I figured what the hell. I thought so yea it’s pre-cooked, so it had to be preserved some kinda way, but after reading the sodium content alone on just on packet, one damn serving, it’s ridiculous, I just wished I had seen that before I left the store. I’ve seen less sodium in a tub of actual salt! Needless to say, after eating two patties per day every other day, I will not be restocking these. I just can’t do that shit to my body.
Maybe I should check the farmers market to see if they have any veggie patties, hopefully the calorie and sodium count is much lower. Because these are definitely a recipe for hypertension.
