@JAke- go out and buy prepared meals form your grocery store. You will make yourself sick and wind up in trouble if you don't eat a balanced diet.

Thanks Merry but prepared foods not allowed either. I’d like to go out for a glorious steak dinner with a monster baked potato with globs of butter, sour cream, chives and cheese also some asparagus smothered in cheese sauce and a Dr Pepper. Then stop by the cheesecake kitchen for dessert. It’s been over a year since I’ve gone out for a decent meal. After all it is my birthday. But my doctor would squawk big time. Oh well, the fantasy was nice while it lasted.
@merpreb @jakedduck1 That can be a great idea as long as you are not sodium restricted. Prepared foods are generally very high in sodium. We went out to eat last night to a restaurant that has nutrition online. Basically, everything had more than 2000 mg of sodium, some dinners as high as 3000 mg. I try to keep my sodium to 1500 mg a day! My only option was a small steak, unseasoned. It was not a restaurant that you would normally get a steak at, it's an Italian restaurant! I would have loved some eggplant parm.
