RE: Question about Kickstart Menu

I was a bit surprised when you were concerned initially about eggs and dairy in bread. But then I realized that most grocery store breads do have assorted milk powder type additives. We make our own and, when necessary, use plant milk (we prefer almond though I know that's out for you). Mostly, hubby makes bagels and flour tortillas instead of yeast loaves. Bagels in the winter and tortillas year round (bagels heat up the kitchen more - not good in July with no a/c!)
Funny story: a few months ago, we were travelling and went down to the hotels complimentary breakfast buffet. Sitting side by side next to the toaster were two racks: one with white bread and one with "wheat bread". My son (12 yrs old) pointed to one, then the other and said "what's the difference between these two things?" I said "well, that's white bread and that's wheat bread" He looked at them and shook his head and said "no, it's white bread and beige bread!" At 12, he's quite the savvy consumer as far as ingredient labels and nutrition.
