I found it in the store yesterday...it's made by Maranatha. Today I'm going to see if there is cashew butter at The Good Food Store. Since I can't chew nuts anymore...have to get my good cholesterol somehow!

When I was pregnant I followed the dietician's recommendations and ate all the servings of veg, fruit, protein, etc. that are in Canada's food guide. I was so full I didn't have room for any chocolate, potato chips, etc. I kept losing weight (I was overweight, so I was pleased) and getting the lecture from the doctor about eating properly and not "dieting" while pregnant.

I was on total bed rest, so the weight loss wasn't from exercise.

We did Cracker Barrel for brunch. So dinner will be later. I still haven't broken down that whole pork loin. Expiration date is May 20 so I am not concerned yet. I picked up some country ham steaks from CB so maybe ham, mashed taters and fresh steamed spinach for dinner. I LOVE CB country ham!! Just the right smoke and salt for me. Quick easy dinner cooked in about 1/2 hour!!

Thanks, TL. Because I am "in training" (never thought that would come out of my mouth), I am basically trying a similar thing - Eating to nourish my body. Using the Food Guide is a great idea! I say this while eating my procuitto, lettuce, Swiss and tomato sandwich on potato flax bread (gluten free)! I have a copy of the Food Guide with Dad's stuff so I will dig it out!
