But *I* don't like plain yogurt. LOL! I use Splenda-sweetened, deliciously flavored "syrups." And I add them about one minute before eating the yogurt.
I do add romaine when I can afford it. Lately, I've been adding plenty of spinach.
That sounds good! I'll try it!
We have a food dehyrator that we haven't used yet. I'd love to make my own jerky, since most of the commercial brands use sugar. There's a place online that does sell sugar-free jerky, but I know I can make it at home at a fraction of the price.
The salads I eat are enormous. They fill a serving bowl. Like the kind you serve mashed potatoes in. I eat either broccoli or spinach in my omelettes, spinach in my salads, and a mountain of broccoli at dinner. I buy it frozen, in 5 pound bags.
I also love sauteed cabbage. We're buying some tonight, as a matter of fact. Raw, not sauteed. ;o)
As for fruits, South Beach is a lot more open-minded than Atkins. When I complete my first two weeks, I can start eating an apple a day, if I wish. And I wish!
Thank you for all your helpful tips. My next salad will have lemon juice on it. :o)
