Postby Allie » August 19th, 2006, 2:47 pm

I thought that the quick start said that red bell peppers were legal, but i was reading posts on the lean cusine, and someone said that they were not leagal. I love them.

Are they ok?

I believe they are now legal, but at one time they weren't. That may be the answer.

Are the ones in the jars ok? The ones I like are fire roasted and then peeled, and come packed in water.

I usually use fresh grilled peppers in their rainbow of different colors. Maybe, you should check the label on the peppers in a jar. I would think that if they are not seasoned highly with salt, or have additives, and are in water, then they should be alright. When I am not sure about a product, I will compare the contents--fresh vs jar or can, and go with the one with equal nutrients or with less 'no-no's' for our program. ;)

The previous quick start guide just said green peppers were okay. The newest quick start guid says peppers (and in parenthesis under says green, yellow, and red)... so they are now all legal. Again, the green are best, with fewest carbs, but the others are okay also.

I haven't had any problems with red peppers. I use fresh, frozen, and in jars. Just look at the ones in the jars to make sure nothing was added to raise the carb or sodium content.

I was curious, How much sodium are we allowed to have in a day? I was always a huge salt eater, and now with all the extra water I am drinking (I am upto 90oz a day), I feel crappy if I don't add extra salt.

The bell peppers that I like have 20mg of sodium per serving, but I usually only have a half serving, mixed with onions and lettuce, or zuccinis. Is that still ok?
