I just researched the 9-grain wheat bread from Subway... I know it has been mentioned here before that the whole wheat bread was not whole wheat.... here ( is one summary of what the ingredients are... white flour and HFCS come before whole wheat flour. So annoying!! I was hoping it wouldn't be that bad. I know, the salad is the only SBD-friendly choice. Tho I did have a minestrone there that had actual chunks of veggies so that might work (don't eat the pasta) if the salt is not too crazy.

I have been really bad about eating what I have in my house. It stresses me out... yesterday I was so busy running around that I didn't bring enough food with me. I hit a salad bar, where I think everything was on plan for Phase 2, including a huge green leaf/spinach and veggie salad with almost no dressing, hard boiled egg, edamame, a tiny sweet potato, lentil soup and cantaloupe/blueberries/mango for dessert. Yay for salad bars!!

Today, phase 1.5, no grains.
