Day 2 went pretty well.  I have been enjoying all of my meals and have not really missed anything.  This evening though I really didn’t feel  like yogurt so I had a few mini cheesecakes instead.  They were delicious and totally hit the spot.  I really like to have something sweet at the end of the day so if I want to follow their 2 probiotics rule, I need...
