You know, it's really weird, but there was absolutely NO
fat free ranch dressing on the shelves when I picked up salad dressing. Not even a spot for it. All they had was the fat free Catalina (which is my favorite for salads anyway) and fat free Thousand Island.
I can handle raw broccoli & cauliflower with ranch dip. Mixing it with sour cream sounds pretty good too, and I imagine I could "spice up" some sour cream to make a decent dip too (home made taco seasoning sounds good, especially for the peppers - unfortunately colored peppers are $4/lb here
). Cucumbers I can take or leave but they always "talk back" to me all day when I eat them
I used to be able to munch on carrots all day but they upset my stomach anymore and besides they're too starchy/sweet and off limits.
I'm going to re-read the book when I get home, because if I can have more protein I'll be set. I have some deli ham & turkey, plus the beef jerky, plus tuna, etc. The thing is, I can seriously put away some meat if I'm not careful
that would probably add too much to the calories.
