OK, still on travel, but have to post these great successes at restaurants: "I cannot have any oil." "We could use a lighter oil, or olive oil." "No, I cannot have any oil." At two different restaurants. Had roasted veggies sprinkled with some herbs--sweet and regular potatoes, carrots, asparagus, etc.--great! Last night at Salt, in Boulder, they had to make me steamed beets, Swiss chard, hubbard and spaghetti squash. You should have seen it--red and green and golden! Beautiful! and fabulously delicious!
Looking forward to seeing the scale when I get home. Except for the disastrous Wednesday (gin & tonic on a very empty stomach!), I have been compliant!
I should have known DIL would know about McDougall! She works for Whole Foods, which apparently sends their staff who need it to an immersion week!
(She is slender, so she did not need to go.) She made us an incredible ratatouille, and will give me the recipe today. I watched her cook it, and it looks easy and it was very delicious--and I had given up on ever eating eggplant before this!
Their kitchen looks like mine! I found the rolled oats easily, the organic low sodium veggie broth, the kale and carrots and so on in the fridge, WOW! Both of my daughters-in-law somehow are natural, organic, low-fat gals! I don't know how I managed that, since I did not arrange the marriages!!
