-Toasted slice of Ezekiel bread
-Cup of Lemon Sorbet for dessert

-Homemade LID Snack Bar. Find the recipe by clicking HERE.  This is a LID version of rice krispy treats.  I made it in the microwave- Place the non-dairy/non-sodium butter in a large microwave safe bowl.  Top with the marshmallows.  Microwave for 2 minutes---note the marshmallows will triple in size during the cooking period- make sure your bowl is LARGE and that you handle with care when removing from microwave. Stir in the LID approved peanut butter and then stir in the cereal- and place in 9x13" dish- cool and cut.  I used Kashi 7 whole grain Puffs cereal- zero sodium (see photo below).


-Mixed salad greens with tomato, yellow peppers and carrots.  Made balsamic dressing with olive oil, balsamic vinegar, garlic, mustard seeds and dried Italian herbs. Processed in Magic Bullet to make emulsion.
-Homemade spaghetti sauce with ground beef, onions, garlic, dried Italian herbs, no salt canned tomatoes and no salt tomato paste, splash of white wine and fresh basil. Used Kosher salt and fresh pepper.

    1. Thanks for your comment- wish you best with your LID and treatment!

  2. I wasn't able to find the recipe for the LID rice crispy treats. How much butter, marshmallows and peanut butter?

    1. This is the recipe from Daria's LID blog:

      Home Made LID Snack Bar:

      3 Tablespoons salt-free, dairy-free margarine
      10 oz. marshmallows (Kraft Campfire brand is safe as of this date - always read ingredients)
      1/2 cup doctored up peanut butter, room temperature
      6 cups puffed wheat cereal (plain, no salt)

      Melt the margarine and add the marshmallows and stir on low heat until melted. Remove from the heat and add the peanut butter. Quickly stir in the cereal to coat it. Dump the mixture out onto a cookie sheet that is lined with waxed paper. With another piece of waxed paper on your hand, press the mixture down. Let it cool. Cut into squares, wrap and take to work or store at home in a plastic container and enjoy!

      Variation: Reduce the amount of cereal by a half cup and add in a half cup of dried fruit of your choice such as cherries or blueberries.
