    Hi All
    I'm sure there was a post not long ago about what you could have but I can't for the life of me find it! As I read the list in the book it doesn't include green peppers and yet if you turn the page there is a recipe that includes green pepper! Also, another question, do you think peas are ok to have? I did have them yesterday, and boy were they good, but when I checked the booklet (after eating) there is no mention of them - but they're green! Feeling a bit confused at mo - must add it doesn't take much to confuse me though lol

    Peas are a bit carby - and yeah - the book does explain that in the FAQ at the end of the 1000 chapter, I think - tiny bits of foods not on the list are kind of okay in combo with other ingredients. So you could use miso soup and garlic and ginger with the pak choi for example - but the idea is to be sparing with those new tastes and just enjoy the rest of the list!

    I'll get you the list in a sec hun - but just wante dto asner your question. Peas are very sweet so go easy on 'em...
