Don't know for sure, but I would guess that any seafood would be okay on 790 as it tends to be low carb, low fat, and is mainly protein. I suppose it depends what they have done to it and/or added to it since it was caught. Only sure way is to check the label and check that they are low-carb .... e.g. Fresh Tiger Prawns from Asda are NIL carbohydrate.

Pepper is okay, though I am not sure about the vinegar .....

As for low-carb bread, crackers ..... not sure they exist really, certainly none suitable for the early stages on CD (790). There are breads that are better for you (low GL) once you are maintaining though, such as Nairns Oatcakes, Rye Bread etc etc

I would have thought if you can have pickled red cabbage on AAM that a small amount of vinegar would be fine. You can also have prawns on AAM so would have thought them ok on 790.

I would steer clear of bread and crackers...

I have prawns at least once a week, both on AAMW and now on 790.

Cannot understand not being able to have vinegar when we can have pickled cabbage as one of the 'official' vegetables, though.
