How I feed via deliveries by UPS, FedEx, and USPS, instead of dining in different restaurants during the pandemic.

Overview

Being out of reach during the pandemic by PrimeNow, DoorDash, GrubHub, Uber, Postmates, Instacart, Zomato, etc.), I’ve had to depend on UPS, FedEx, and USPS trucks deliverying packages from on-line markets.

Here are my favorites (and not so favorites) from those markets.

Salt, Fat, and Sugar

My favorite food groups!

Butter buscuits offers all 3. Kerry Gold, mailed from Ireland. $10 US for two boxes.

Sooo bad for you. But sooo good!

Big stores

Amazon.com has a “gourmet” section. Using the Amazon Visa card gets us 5% back.

Shopping at our local Walmart.com also has a 5% rebate, even without their credit card.

Target, surprisingly, has great prices.

  • mouth.com snacks, drinks, bacon, jerkey

  • MarketHallFoods.com

Meats

Many wild game meats (venison, pheasant, quail, rabbit, etc.) are known to be high in purines which cause gout inflammation. That’s also the case with organ meats such as sweetbreads, liver, kidney, tongue, and heart.

Salmon and shellfish seems to be an exception to fish with high purine levels, in that most gout sufferers don’t have a problem with it.
