I'm ok without eating the pickled stuff, but I do miss it. Because of my health issues, I've had to forgo quite a lot of foods. Like I said though, it's a fair trade-off with me.

I wonder then if the sodium would play havoc with my body chemistry? I've had to almost eliminate sodium from my diet now. When I do eat something with a higher level of sodium, it plays hell with me. I get to live in the little room for a day....

Well then. It's time to revise your plans. Pickles are bad, stop eating them.

Ha! As much as I don't want to give them up, I think you're right Andy. Dang! I have to find a good substitute for them! Fresh veggies are my snackables now. I use a spicy dipping sauce instead of a sodium based sauce for them.

It's almost as good! Thanks for your suggestions Andy and PF!
