B cheese on toast
L crackers and cheese with cucumber
D veg soup
Returned from holiday and had my first home-cooked meal in a while Saturday night: lentil spag bol (with courgetti) and salad.
L: Cheese & mushroom omelette with baked beans
D: Bean pie, couple of potatoes and veg.
I'm getting back to a lower carb diet; my BG has been much better since being home (less of a rollercoaster).
And no matter how good the restaurant, home cooked is always best....
Just happy being me
B: Poached egg on Livlife toast
L: Cheese & onion toastie (more Livlife) & salad
D: Nut Roast, couple of potatoes & veg
Snack: Peanut butter on oat cakes
Sugar puffs & cream
Chip butties on white bread
Saving grace, leeks in cheese sauce but 'erm boiled New potatoes (well buttered of course)
Although home-based it's been a bit of a holidayish week (that's my excuse and I'm sticking to it )
Breakfast - a piece of carrot with some hummus dip
Snacks when I got to work - baby bell, mixed nuts
Lunch - cheese salad with mayonnaise
Dinner - asparagus with butter followed by strawberries and a little cream
@Sable_Jan Chip butties on white bread is the correct way: you'd be lynched for anything else round here (Manchester). Enjoy your "break".
@Art Of Flowers I'm practically addicted to hummus, but can't start the day with it
Talking of "unusual" breakfasts, I've been experimenting with chocolate chia pudding recently and had good results (low impact on BG). I got the idea from https://diatribe.org/three-minute-diabetes-breakfast-changes-lives
I make my version with two teaspoons of Green & Blacks cocoa powder and flavour it with orange or vanilla essence, then add some frozen berries and leave it overnight to absorb the water (I use double recommended i.e. a full cup). I don't have time to mess about in the morning; it's quick, but takes time for the seeds to absorb the water (plus I have digestion problems so it's safer to give the chia time to soften).
With my ingredients it's 34g carbs, but only 7g net carbs, 15g protein, 28g fat, so 444kcal. This makes a filling breakfast, equivalent to a large bowl of porridge.
Well defo a northern thing. Preston isn't all THAT far from Preston
Now I love chia seed pudding and don't know if your version same as mine but couldn't eat it for breakfast. It's lovely with thick whipped (or squirty) cream ... hot or cold.... never tried it with fruit...
