Re: Bad Breath

Yes...if you need to eliminate the brown rice then use white mashed potatoes in place of the brown rice.... and yes... in addition to the sweet potato already in the meal. As you know.....when trying a new diet.. it is all one-step-at-a-time "trial and error" ... take a lto of time but we ...
