Just unpacked my NB Pro900 last night. Spent the entire evening reading over all the info and suggestions. I must say I have a LONG way to go, but I can't wait to try my first blast. I'm on a tight budget so i need to get a jump start with the most bang for my buck! Any suggestions on beginning this life style change on a shoestring budget. One more question. In the user guide & recipe book it shows a chart on things to enjoy and things to avoid. Why is black pepper a seasoning we should avoid. I thought it was a healthy choice. Thanks!

Black pepper is OK for most people, but some have reported an upset stomach from using it. Most people won't use enough to really experience any issues with it. I would try hitting up local farmers markets towards the end, when they are closing. A lot of farmers want to get rid of their produce and don't want to load it back into their truck. You can save a lot of money this way. Also I have seen / bought berries and greens from the 99 cent store. Ethnic markets also have better deals on fresh fruits and veggies.
