Yes, I love Mexican. Did you read the section on eating out in our book? We give suggestions there. Fajitas are a great choice, you'll be surprised that you likely won't miss the rice, beans or toritallas. The wonderful spicy meat and veggies with cheese, salsa and sour cream is very satisfying. A Taco salad is a great choice too, just don't eat that shell. You can ask for cucumber slices to dunk into your cheese dip or salsa if you feel left out not eating the chips.

steffanie3: Ezekiel is sprouted. You could post your recipe up in a post so we could see it

asensenig: Ezekiel Mix: 12 cups Barley; 12 cups Rye or Spelt; 4 cups dry lentils; 4 cups millet; 4 cups dry pinto beans; 3 cups dry soy beans. Another question. Can rye berries be used without sprouting?

steffanie3: I was thinking you meant the store bought Ezekiel which is sprouted. This recipe would not be on plan with the honey.

asensenig: ok. if you substituted another sweetner for the honey, would it be ok?

aecmama: hello! just started the plan and wondering about the Chobani 100 yogurt that is sweetened with stevia and also monkfruit extract (both of which I have already in the house!) Anyone know anything? I've spent awhile searching. Are either of these on plan?

steffanie3: Can you list the ingredients aecmama?

steffanie3: Cane juice is sugar and is not on plan, sorry.

steffanie3: Are the grains and beans sprouted asensening?
Apr 16, 2014 16:04:42 GMT -5
aecmama: any thoughts about monkfruit extract as a sweetener?
Apr 16, 2014 16:05:09 GMT -5
steffanie3: "At this time, there is not an official recommendation to use monk fruit, but the early research on monk fruit extract is encouraging." The THM ladies are still researching it. If it were me I would use up what you have then get a stevia extract
