Is it okay to use Alessi breadsticks for hcg diet instead of Grissini? Ingredients include garlic, wheat flour, yeast, extra virgin oil, malt and salt. The thing is I live in a town and the closest city is around 3 miles away. At our nearby store, we have Alessi but not Grissini. Has anyone used it in the diet? Kindly clarify.
I would have to say no. WHY? becoz the extra virgin olive oil in the bread is a fat and is sadly not allowed on phase 2. You may just have to skip the starch if you are having difficulty finding melba toast or grissini.
