    Well, given that I am trying to restrict my carbs to 6 grammes at breakfast time, I do have to count the carbs in eggs AND lettuce.

    I’d recommend the Lidl rolls too they are excellent but make sure you buy the high protein ones not the high gi ones big difference in carbs. High protein are 4 carbs per half a roll. I buy 8 at a time cut each one into 6 slices and freeze in packs of 3 slices. Then take them one out night before if having boiled egg or salad,
    or warm them to eat with chilli no beans ! As garlic bread or warmed in butter in frying pan to go with a curry instead of a Nan they’ve been my saviour and personally don’t put my bg up and act as wonderful fibre!

    Blimey! You must have very clever knives to cut each one into 6 slices! I will have a go tomorrow, but I expect failure. ;)

    My Lidl has stopped making them, but the bakery section is still producing sticky buns etc. It must be Christmas!

    Swear words. I do hope mine hasn't. I really am addicted.

    They are small slices and use a small serrated knife it can be done just a bit of a pain but worth it

    Thanks for the warning.

    I may go round there tomorrow just to check - and take a barrow load back home for the freezer if they are still doing them.

    Lidl in Ireland (N & S) don't make them and it really derailed my normal eating pattern earlier this year.

    Can always complain to Lidl Central who are usually very helpful.

    I toasted mine and slathered it in butter and threw it away after a couple of bites. I love butter the waste hurt. Dare I admit that I'd bought 2 and chucked the other one away as well.:nailbiting::)

    Just as many rave about avocado, so I bought 2 for the first time ever and used forum advice on the best ones to buy. I thought they were disgusting and threw them away. Just shows that taste is very individual. :):nailbiting:

    and I'm eating about twice what it recommends. It also underestimates the amount of calories in my case. It recommends 1,488 to maintain my current weight. I would still be losing if I ate so few - and I know this because when I changed from weight loss to maintenance I had to get above 1,800 or I just Kept losing. On above 1800 I have been stable for 3 years.

    Oh how different we all are! :rolleyes:
