Rohvannyn replied to Jis4Judy's response:
Lots of nuts, seeds, fruit such as apples, oranges, grapefruit and pomegranate, stir fry every night with green beans, broccoli, carrots, sunflower seeds, mushrooms, black sesame. Dried fruit for candy. Chicken breast and fish for protein. Not much else, actually. No grains or starchy vegetables such as potatoes, next to no sweetener of any kind other than fructose.
