Tell me more about the featured meal today?
Bread on the 60-day program is usually off-limits, but there are some exceptions. I saved the label so I can share with you what is possible for a bread compared with the commercial offering.

In this meal, I toasted up two slices and chopped it up to place in an organic red leaf salad, along with organic avocado, organic raw pistachios, home-made pesto (pine nuts, walnuts, and fresh basil), organic dried tomatoes, and organic garlic hummus. Wow…. delicious!
