Ok I made a black bean salad and put one can of unsalted corn in it which I know corn is a no no but the salad made about 7 cups so it was really very little corn how bad is it eating this? :?:

Which Phase are you on? I would not eat corn in Phase 1 because of the sugars but I sometimes eat small servings of whole corn now. If you are in Phase 2 just try a little and then watch for any problems. If it doesn't bother you then you are probably okay with occasional small servings mixed into other dishes.

Thanks for the quick reply CyndiM. Currently in PhaseI

I don't think corn is catastrophic in Phase 1, but I am one of those who believes a totally clean 2 weeks is key to success. It also just makes everything after much easier, for me easier than I ever imagined it could be. I would experiment with the recipe once you're settled in Phase 2 though, since it's such a small amount of corn per serving.
