DFAC GO/No Go List

I've spoken to a few folks about deployed nutrition, and as promised; below is a list that I use to guide my food choices while eating at the DFAC.  It is a mix of Paleo (if you can pick it, dig it up, or kill it; you may eat it), and eating by the glycemic index (watching the "sugar" content of foods).  Reading the nutrition labels is important if you are getting your meal out of a package.  If you questions, please ask one of the coaches.  Keep in mind, each coach may differ on their own nutritional prefences and recommendations.  Hope this is helpful!
