Healthy4good, thanks for the good idea for lunch. I am on Phase I and not much of a salad eater. After the first two days, I wasn't sure I could choke down another salad! I tried your 7 layer dip salad idea and it has been my favorite lunch so far. I love mexican food, beans, cheese, guacamole, all that. I put a layer of beans, a layer of sliced avocado or guacamole, shredded lettuce, tomatoes, onions, lowfat shredded cheese, taco sauce, top with sliced black olives and a little lowfat sour cream - so yummy! Anyway, I wanted to let you know you helped me stick with the diet.
