Can I eat gluten-free oatmeal, cookies, pasta etc. or are these items off limits since they are not on the approved grocery list?
During the 21 Day Ignite phase, you can only eat the approved foods on the grocery list. After the 21 day Ignite phase in the Balance phase, you can eat those foods; however, each time you eat a serving of food that has any of the “evil 6” then you are spending against your weekly balance.
You can eat those things provided that the item doesn't have any of the other five problem ingredients. Pasta is pretty easy as for cookies and other snacks that might be a tall order. I seem to always find soy lecithin in everything. The food could be clear of every thing else except soy. Sugar contain is also difficult if you're looking for a sweet with less than 5 grams unless it has stevia or xylitol.
