Default I am reading the SBD book and have ??

Hi all, I am new to the beach and this website so thank you in advance for any input. I have been in Phase I for 4 days. The book has a list of allowed food for Phase I and I've seen an updated list on this can we have dairy in Phase I? Has it been changed? Also, I eat out often, the waiter at Ruby Tuesday said that the mashed califlower was SBD approved, but is it for Phase I? Also, my mother made meatballs and I had two (no pasta) but she put breadcrumbs (homemade, white bread) in them. I hope that wont affect me too much as I have lost 3lbs in 3 days and really still cant believe it. Also, is that prepacked taco seasoning ok? The kind that comes in the individual packages by El Paso? Thanks again.

Yes you can have dairy on Phase 1 - follow the types and serving sizes outlined in the food list.

I don't think the amount of breadcrumbs in the meatballs is going to have any net effect.

I googled El paso taco seasoning, and no, it's not SBD friendly.. You want to stay away from Malodextrin, Corn Starch, MSG and partially hydrogenated anything. And 2 Teaspoons dry packs over 20 % of the daily sodium guideline..Maybe try making your own.. (I do, but I never measure anything, so I won't post it) I use Chili, onion,garlic powders,paprika ,splenda, salt, a pinch of cayenne.

Ask the waiter what is in the smashed cauliflower. I checked their website and they aren't listed--they do list the cals/fat/carbs/fiber content.... Sometimes waiters get confused between Atkins and SB.. If in doubt, maybe ask for just steamed cauliflower, and a pat of butter, and mash it yourself.

hope this helps

Hi! Google "taco seasoning recipes" and you'll find a couple you can make yourself that you can control the sodium (you can leave out the salt) and substitute Splenda for the Sugar. I do it for DH.
