    I had rye sunflower bread, buttered and scrambled eggs. Pre was 6.7, Hour reading was 8.6 and two hour was 6.8.

    Is that an acceptable food?

    Too many carbs mind - 27g per slice! Eeeeeek!

    Those aren't critically bad readings for 27g of carbs! I would expect most people could be 8.6 one hour after, at least you came down again x

    Blimey Charles - lots of Dextrose tablets. Isn't there a more enjoyable way to support your blood scores, or is it just expedient to take Dextrose?

  14. Pretty flowers! :woot:

    Your Doritos review sounds fair. Real Doritos are 55% carbs compared to fake Doritos at buggerall% carbs, so they are a good compromise, but will never be as good as the real thing. I read today that you can make taco shells using grated cheddar in a frying pan. I love the internet!

    I love the interweb too. I've found loads of low carb recipes I want to try when I have time. I'm dreaming of finding the perfect pizza base and fake bread....

    I'm really enjoying this plight. It's not really hard at all - you just need to be prepared. Wish my kids would give me some space to investigate more but they're young still.

    How's the cat? X

  17. I found a good looking bread roll recipe today, but they contain psyllium husk powder. Most research on that is taking me to bodybuilding sites! :wideyed:

    I cannot recommend the coconut lime cauliflower rice enough to you Deb. I am evangelical about this one!


    Our cat seems fine today, thanks. His meds dropped from 2 tabs a day to one on alternate days so we are watching him like a hawk. On his first day without a tab (Friday) he just sat in the garden all day meditating and refusing to eat solids. Luckily we have loads of double cream in the house these days and he was happy to drink that. Next day, right as rain. Gave us a scare though. It is good we have this time with him to come to terms with it. After reading about Scandichick's cat yesterday, I realise that more than ever.

    Definitely not been a low carb day! Sunday at work = stress and hypos = me needing comfort food! (I work with someone who likes to tell me what I can and can't eat and raises her eyebrows when I say that as I'm type 1 I can eat what I want as long as I match my insulin to it - even though I generally don't - today, I bought 90% dark chocolate and she had a go at me!) sorry for that little rant! Consequently, today started well, and has ended ****!

    Breakfast - Greek yoghurt and berries

    Lunch - vegetarian fajitas (with lettuce leaf wrap)

    And then... One square each of Lindt 90% dark choc and Lindt dark choc with caramel. Quater of a millionaire bar.

    Then after an argument - feast ice cream and magnum white (yeah I know, fatty)

    Just now - toasted tea cake with loads of butter - naughty, but maaaaan it tasted good!

    Adding up my carbs... I now feel guilty... And a little sick so start again tomorrow! :'(
