Hi: I was worried about bread too, but I was fortunate to find sprouted bread/buns that are pretty good and not too high in carbs. I haven't found any pasta that is great, though I've heard others speak of a product called Dreamfields. Apparently it's lower in carbs then the other pastas. Smile

Make sure you are getting all the nuts and legumes that are allowed for extra protein. I do believe tofu is allowed on Phase 1, but don't quote me on it. It has been a while since SB.

Do you eat dairy and/or eggs?

Love the food that loves you back.

Well, cheese has a lot of protein. Do you eat tofu or eggs IN stuff then? What do you mean you don't eat them on their own? There are a lot of dishes with tofu or eggs. You do need the protein.

Good luck.

If you're used to it you should be fine. Just try to get a little extra protein in there during Phase 1 until you can reintroduce grains and fruit. Good luck!
