Add it to your overnight oats or sprinkle some in your coffee to reap the benefits.

Eating out: Allowed. Check out restaurant menus beforehand to find meals that most closely resemble those in the book. Opt for safe bets such as salad made of leafy greens, raw veggies, grilled chicken or salmon and balsamic vinegar.
