    made me giggle... I was thinking, what part of the world has grapefruit stores? Is this some new chain?
    Costco's organic chicken stock is compliant but making your own is a far better choice.

    Michaela Elmore Cogswell got a reaction from wheresanita in Where is the guidance on reintroducing Alcohol?   
    We did a glass of red wine with dinner tonight. From the first sip I couldn't believe how different my palate was. It was a Bogle Old Vine Zin, which is a fairly cheap wine. I could taste more sweetness than I've ever noticed and the variety of spices I'd never picked up on was amazing. Enjoyed the one glass with my husband and we corked the bottle for another night.
    I have read from a number of people that your alcohol tolerance will be much lower and so we didn't want to push it. It turned out great but because more weight loss is our goal, it will only be a special occasion thing until we're done with the weight loss. Nice to know that we can handle it fine.

    Hey Lauren,
    Let me just say that I personally LOVE me some chipotle! It can definitely come in handy when you are in a pinch for food away from home or you want to suggest a place to eat among friends who may not be as into healthy eating as you are. That being said, you are RIGHT, everything they cook is soybean oil based...even if you got the carnitas, the peppers and onions are still sauteed in soybean oil.
    To avoid the soybean oil you could do the romaine lettuce, carnitas, guacamole, and pico. Double the meat and maybe even the guacamole too.
