Worked out. Vegged out. Feel Great.

Mike: Your spices have sugar? My bottle of cayenne only has pepper! (Well most of my herbs I get from my small garden, but my saffron comes from Penzey's.) Um, I guess you meant condiments, because if your spices have sugar, you're using the wrong spices!
But condiments could be mustard, mayo, etc. I guess I should have said seasonings but that sounds funny.

Crawfish do look like little lobster... but they taste better. The problem is that the mix that's used to boil them has a ton of sodium and will wreck any diet. Besides that when you boil crawfish you have to throw in everything, including the kitchen sink (potatoes, mushrooms, corn on the cob, sausage, onions, lemon, etc). Since hardly any of it is on the plan, I might as well just skip it.
