Thanks, Shell, for the comments here and in my other post. Btw, of course I saw your article and thanks again for sharing your story!! You and your hubby look GREAT in the "after" picture. Thanks! I can sympathize about being sick on planes - I was stuck on a flight from Louisville to Detroit on a plane with no working bathroom and the worst stomach ache of my life! I ended up passing out from it and freaked everyone out and they called paramedics to meet us at the gate even tho I came to by then. The EMTs had to go in the bathroom with me at the airport. . . soooooo embarassing! But anyway - Oh, how scarry and embarassing!
The turkey was lunchmeat, got it in the deli. Yeah, I thought dried mango was a good idea too until I got it home from the store and saw there was added sugar! Oh, shoot!! I just read on the recipe board where you can dry your mango slices in the oven... I will do some more research on that and let you know. So I will stick with dried apricots and golden raisins, which have a lot of sugar but at least it is "natural" and not refined.
