Thanks. I ran across some butter flavored powder stuff in the spice section, near the salt and pepper and Mrs. Dash that looked ok. It was at Walmart, but the name escapes me. It probably can't hurt me for a week, I just don't want to mess up the weight loss. I use salt, pepper some other dry spices, maybe a tsp of ketchup or a Tbl of beef stock. Reading the posts people seem amazed when they add other things and don't do "just potatoes" and then don't lose weight and maybe even gain some. The plan is so simple - just potatoes and some dry spices.
