    Yesterday (look away now if you're LCHF):

    B: Granola and a cinnamon bagel

    L: Manchester's finest cuisine: the chip butty

    D: Pasta with beans/veg in tomato sauce. Strawberries & cream

    Basically everything possible including chocolate biscuits, crisps & orange juice to keep my BG up for long walks on holiday :)

    And why not make the most of being on holiday!!
    Lots of walking, you've earned your treats...

    Had some strawberry ice-cream today....home made...experimenting. just whipped cream and pureed strawberries with a bit of sweetener. I did use the recipes in book that came with ice-cream maker and they're fine eaten soon as its ready but freeze hard like an ice-cream lolly.....and I got rid of my moulds.....

    B: Peanut butter on toast

    L: Hummus & salad sandwich

    D: Tofu & veg stir fry (not really authentic Chinese unless a little ginger counts) with cauli-rice

    Good news: when I returned from my hols, I had a letter waiting with a hospital appointment next week to dilate my duodenum :)

    Hi @Sable_Jan

    I'm using LivLife low carb bread so I can have as many slices as I want! (two's enough for me)

    breakfast was mango smoothie - half amango, vegan vanilla protein powder, soy milk, coconut water, pinch of turmeric, ground linseeds.
    lunch was homemade apple/red-cabbage/spring-onion/carrot 'slaw' with my homemade half-fat soy/oil 'mayonaisse' with chinese leaves and sliced marinaded tofu. snack was 2 mejoul dates and a small handful of mixed nuts. (plus my BP tablet, my metformin and an antibiotic for an ear infection! yum...) Personal Trainer session later, so I have another vegan protein powder 'shake' to hand.

    yesterday, I did my own 'raw' version of the wagammama warm tofu chilli salad. sliced and marinaded the tofu in soy-sauce, fresh ginger, hoysin paste, sesame oil and soy-millk to dilute. grated/sliced/spiralised salad veg with sugar snaps & baby sweetcorns. actually did look a bit like this - centre picture https://www.wagamama.com/our-menu/salads https://www.wagamama.com/our-menu/salads

    I've tried Lidl's low GI cob but never been able to test after....very yummy....

    I've not seen that one but don't go supermarket often.... rarely go down bread aisle either but just enjoy the smell of fresh bread when I do....

    Hi @DavyPaul

    Your Asian-inspired menu is more adventurous than mine :) In a coincidence, I've just made a smoothie using mango, coconut water, linseeds (and a few other odds and sods), but I'm not vegan so I added Greek yoghurt - sorry!

    @Sable_Jan

    And in another coincidence, I've finally made a trip to Lidl and bought some of their seeded rolls. I had one for breakfast (tasty) with a fried egg. I'll try another in a few days as I'm using my Libre to compare the impact of different breads and posting the results on another thread: http://www.diabetes.co.uk/forum/thr...nd-flour-act-as-a-low-carb-food.119122/page-2
