  1. Just a question about THM for post the chicken stir-fry over brown rice as an E. Is brown rice on plan?

    1. Yes in the book on pg. 87 it lists all E approved foods. You can have up to 3/4c. Cooked brown rice.

    2. Thanks! I'm still trying to remember everything and mark it in my book as it is recalled! Whew! There's a lot, isn't there!

  2. Thanks for posting this. It is helpful.
