Recipe Notes

*Not all onion powders are safe. Check the ingredients and avoid anything contain sugar, starches, oils, preservatives, and words ending in -ose, -tol, or -dextrin.

**When choosing the stevia for this recipe... many store-bought brands of stevia are stevia 'blends'. Only 'pure' stevia is recommended for Phase 2 of the HCG Diet. SweetLeaf® stevia is the brand we recommend and it's allowed in any quantity. If you do not have SweetLeaf® stevia, look at the ingredients and if you see any words ending in -ose, -tol, or -dextrin, avoid using that type of stevia during Phase 2 of the HCG Diet. ***You should always purchase fresh garlic for the best possible weight loss.
