    How is a banana considered low carb?

    Amie, it looks like the recipe is labeled "liberal low carb" and the recipe calls for 1/2 a banana split into 4 servings. (7 carbs/serving.)

    as you work your data base could we keep the 'Tip" at the bottom of the recipe to print. They are really helpful. Also, a bullet list of the names of dishes or meals to print out as well as the shopping list would be amazing. I am having to write them up to keep me straight, especially if I switch and swap. I have only been doing it a few days and one thing really good is the Cabbage Casserole. The jerk chicken proved to be a soggy jerk - ugh! :-)
