I have been using the Kashi Thin Crust pizzas once a week for our family pizza night and I love them. :drool: I don't know if they're totally SBD compatible. I do see a few questionable ingredients there. These pizzas have a marvelous flavor and seem relatively healthy. What do you SBD experts think? They have not caused any problems for me. I am continuing to lose weight while using them. I like the Roasted vegetable one. :jeno:

I'm crazy about these, too! Aren't they yummy? I think they're pretty close to SBD compatible that I'm not going to worry about it. The only things I see that are questionable are the wheat starch syrup (? whatever that is) and the evaporated cane syrup, but I think the amounts are minimal enough not to cause any cravings. I pile these pizzas with lots of extra raw veggies such as baby spinach, zucchini and red peppers, and it makes a very satisfying meal.

I love the Kashi products and it drives me crazy that they are so close to being SBD-compatible, but not completely. I use them on occasion though, particularly the pizzas and the frozen waffles. If they are not causing you any problem, I wouldn't worry about it.

I have a Kashi Coconut Lemongrass Chicken meal in my freezer. No one else in my family will eat it but I absolutely love them. I don't think it is entirely SBD friendly but it isn't horrible for me either. I plan to have it at the end of my first month on phase 2.

I put sliced tomatoes and mushrooms on mine before baking today. It was great!

I'm glad to see this. I'm headed shopping today and I'm planning on picking one up for the freezer. That way, when my son comes for visit and I am cooking something he doesn't like he can have it... OR if I decide pizza night with him, I'm good to go. He LOVES these, as do I!!!!!!!!!


Kashi Cereal, it's galled "go lean"... I chose that for my P2 cereal... anyone know if thats SB friendly? No sugar added!

Kashi GoLean is fine for Phase 2, just make sure you don't get the GoLean Crunch, though.
