When I First Started The Diet

I was 25 when I first started the diet. I had just learned how to cook, but everything I learned to use in my dishes (flour, butter, cheese, pre-made broths / canned soup, bread/bread crumbs and crackers for toppings, milk, sugar) was not allowed. I didn't know how to cook anything that was ok for me.

There was no such thing as a health food store where I lived. And at this point, it was REALLY rare for anyone to have an Internet connection in their home.

I was a vegetarian at the time, so no meat. That left me with grains and veggies.
