Condiments and Herbs

You may use:

• Black Pepper (not Red or white pepper), Curry (check for starches), Mustard (powder only),
• Vinegar (brown/white), Balsamic Vinegar, Garlic
• All Herbs (e.g. Basil, Rosemary, Oregano, etc) eg. Mix all together and use with a grinder.

• Limited amounts of Salt. (Excessive use of salt causes water retention)
• 1 level teaspoon a day of NOLA Lite- a Low Fat Mayonnaise / Slimmonaise


It is important to check that, if you are having dried herbs or spices, that there is no starch added. Many manufacturers add modified starch, crushed cereal, cornflour, or some other starch agent- these will interfere with your results.
Also watch out for preservatives and additives like MSG.


* Cinnamon - Helps regulate the menstrual cycle and checks flooding during menopause. It has a tranquilizing effect that helps reduce anxiety and stress. Early research suggests that cinnamon may help improve both glucose and cholesterol levels in the blood, a finding that may prove especially important for diabetics. In a study, type 2 diabetics who consumed as little as a gram of cinnamon per day experienced an improvement in their blood glucose levels after 40 days.
