The first few weeks for me were emotional as well. I am about to start week 5 and I still feel a little out of whack. If you like refried Beans I would try that. I made a crockpot of pinto beans and made my own. That way I could control the sodium and sugar. I added a little enchilada sauce and reduced fat cheese. Cottage cheese is also something I am eating a lot. I made a recipe from my doctors website that was basically puréed ground turkey meat, ricotta cheese and low sugar marinara sauce. It wasn't as good as lasagna but it was tasty. Good luck with the upcoming weeks!
