    My daughter has severe peanut and tree nut allergies but I want something satisfying like peanut sauce. Any thoughts on using soy nut butter as a base?

    I wanna keep eating out to a minimum of about 1-2 times a month, and I would like some GOOD stuff I can buy at the grocery store that will taste better than a fast food meal. My favorites are Subway tuna tubs, McDonalds Big Macs, Burger King Whoppers, Pizza hut hand tossed pizzas, Chinese food such as eggs rolls and fried rice, i’m getting hungry as im typing this lol but i don’t get paid till Tuesday, so what should I get? Thank you in advance.

    Monday night I ate rice and curry.
    Tuesday I ate chips and beans and then I ate stir fried rice with prawn and chicken satay and then in the night I didn’t eat anything. Today I ate local chips with chicken burger and now I’m eating salad in a bowl.

    Why haven’t I passed stool yet? What is happening to the food?
    Thank you ‘Shorty91′ and ‘Proud mummy’..
