hun th main thing to be careful of is how much salt they have in them as salt causes water retention. curry powder is fine but the others i wouldnt no. if i were you i would be very careful and use v small amounts on one day and see if you are still in ketosis th next day. thats the only way you will find out.
keep us posted as it sounds fab if you can have them.

As far as I know-none of those would be ok :(
It's a no-no to tomato, any forms of citric acid, salt/sodium and onions. Sorry to be the bearer of bad news.
I'm sure someone else will be along to tell you what you are allowed though :)

I suppose it's a good thing I am a fan of curry chicken. ;) I have a favorite dish I might see if I can replicate the flavor of. They cook the chicken pieces in some form of curry sauce and mix with spinach and almonds. Very delish. Maybe I can add some herbs, curray powder, and almond extract to the soup to get the same flavor.... will have to experiment.

I've got no idea, but I'm doing the 200 calorie meal and was wondering if they were suitable for use over our leafy greens and protein?
