aside from the the bbq [vegan] the rest sounds great!! ive been loving the fresh fruit--i was about to *DIE* on apples [needs variety]but one things puzzling me....as i eat rice alot too--brown rice. almost every-other day for about 2 weeks now ive been eating rice thinking it was a "thinner food" to eat and ive actually noticed places on my body that seem bigger--like from fat. and the only thing i can attribute that to is the rice b/c i know its high in carbs! i cook mine in water first, to get real soft and creamy and then i drain all but a little bit of the water and mix in Imagine's No Chicken Broth and usually add some veggies [?] im at a loss--ive also been working extra-long so i would think id be in shape [since i lift boxes and trays and stuff] but its as if im not! im fearing swimsuit weather!
