I miss it! I bought some blueberries and strawberries for the family and they are killing me as they sit on the cupboard and stare at me. I normally ate fairly healthy prior to OP, but just ate too much...and too much wine...LOL
I am still giggling over only losing inches from my bust this week. Not even an eighth anywhere else but a full inch on my bust. And 2 more lbs off...Guess the fruit will have to wait!
Hope everybody is geared up for a great weekend!

I do too (A LOT)! I'm glad I will be phasing off just as fruit season is starting around here. The cran bar helps a little but nothing really replaces yummy fresh fruit.

Try some rhubarb with a splash of sugar free strawberry or whatever berry syrup or just some Splenda....it's considered a veggie.

FYI stew it up on the stove or in the microwave (you can buy it frozen right now somewhere)

Jicama also makes a pretty passable apple substitute - it's technically a veggie but has a very mild flavor and an apple-like texture. I love slicing it up and sprinkling it with cinnamon and a little Splenda! I've also used it diced up in my oatmeal packet.

I feel your pain about missing fresh fruit!
But I can also second the suggestion to try Jicama. It reminds me a lot of apples and pears, just a little less sweet.

I purchased some Dole frozen rhubarb recently & look forward to trying it soon.

If your supermarket doesn't have a section of "ethnic" produce, try a local spanish market. My local Market Basket hides them by the Asian veggies (sprouts, bok choy, snow peas, daikon radishes, etc)

Question Phase I - ok to eat Jicama?

Hi there I am confused. I've been wanting to eat Jicama and asked my counselor about it . He told me that jicama has more calories than cucumber. Can you still eat this? Thanks

I am not sure where your coach is going with this??? It is on the approved list of veggies. It is a higher than cucumber that is for sure, but you are meant to eat a mixture of all the approved veggies towards your 4 cups per day. I would not eat 2 full cups of jicama at one sitting as it is a bit higher carb, but it is on the list so technically you could....

Good luck!!

Wow thanks a lot for all your advice. I guess some coaches just go by the book very strict on the program. I am trying to find other veggies that I can enjoy eating everyday. I am sure we can take some veggies that are high in carbs but in moderation. I do love Jicama so I will go for this in moderation.. Thanks a lot again.. You guys made my day..

Jicama is on the select veggie list. No reason to restrict it!
There are LOTS Of veggies on that list!
