34.4lbs lost since we started on January 23! Woohoo! I hope to see a .6 lb loss tomorrow morning so I can say I lost an even 35lbs ;-)
We have our 'miracle noodles' (white shiritaki noodles) for Phase 3 and will be making some pasta dishes and soup. We have the Oopsie dough recipe so we can make some bread alternatives! We have our many types of mustard that are no sugar, no gluten, and no preservatives. We have chips made out of cheese (nothing else). We have a tomato sauce that has no sugar, gluten, starches, additives, etc. We have our organic Peanut Butter that is literally just Peanuts and Salt. We even found uncured, gluten free beef and turkey hot dogs that have no starches, preservatives, sugars or anything that we cannot have. It was a difficult task but we found them at sprouts.
We are still looking for Black Olives that do not have Ferrous Gluconate (an additive to make the olives black that is corn-based), uncured Turkey Bacon, Andouille Sausage that has no starches, no gluten, no corn-based products, no sugar, etc -- so if you have found the brand and a store in the Phoenix area that carries them please let me know!
We are really excited about all the new foods we can add to our shopping list! Look what is on our list for Phase 3:
Cheese (Cheddar, Feta, Goat, Parmesan, Mozzarella...mmm)
Jicama (going to make some tasty hash browns!)
Tuna (canned, water based, no additives/preservatives)
Turkey Deli meat (no nitrates, starches, sugars, gluten, etc -- Sprouts has it!)
Well, the list is getting longer as we think more about what else we want to eat!
