  1. The peach and blueberry crumble mentions to add Ice cream on top. Ice cream is a milk product and cannot be used in lid. Just thought I would mention this so no one makes that mistake.
    Thanks.

    1. Thanks- yes, I hope folks see the last line "when not on the LID, we use ice cream."

  2. I also don't understand or is it allowed to eat -Pumpkin black bean soup- during such diet? - though it contains BLACK beans ( that should be avoided when on LID) and cream (milk product- also to be avoided)...

  3. oh, i see you dont use cream in this recipe, but "The National Institutes of Health diet says to avoid these beans: red kidney beans, lima beans, navy beans, pinto beans, and cowpeas." So, "navy" beans, if i uderstand it correctly, are the "black" beans the same??
