    Mushrooms on my shopping list - check! Paneer in my fridge - check. It might be good to fry it in some cumin butter ... I'll try. When in India I always order paneer somethingorother. Love the stuff. Hey, will put frozen spinach on the list too :) I'm glad I'm not allergic to anything, because the range of food is quite poor here.

    As requested, but not really much of a recipe...

    Tandoori baby cauliflower:

    1 baby cauliflower (the little romanescos are food, but out of season atm)
    Alpro soya (or whatever) yogurt
    Tandoori spice mix (Asian shops)
    Chilli sauce (because I don’t do bland)

    Mix the marinade ingredients and slather the cauliflower in it. Leave as long as possible. Roast for an hour at 200C, or until soft and browned.

    Saag Paneer:

    2 tbsp coconut oil
    2 tbsp curry paste (I use a madras one)
    2 courgettes
    300g frozen spinach
    100g paneer/halloumi cheese, diced
    200g yogurt

    Melt the oil and fry the curry paste. Add the diced courgette, and cook until it’s as soft as you prefer (I like it all dente). Add the yogurt and spinach, cover and let cook for a bit. Add the cheese cubes. I cooked it a few hours in advance to let the flavours get to know each other a bit.

    Cauliflower rice:

    Buy a tub for 90pmfrom Asda and follow the instructions. Or... melt a couple of tbsp coconut oil in an oven dish with plenty of salt and pepper. Toss the rice in this to coat, and roast for 40 minutes at 180, turning every ten minutes. This gives a wonderfully nutty, not at all squelchy substitute.

    The whole meal was 21g carbs, but all nice slow ones. 52g fat and 29g protein using my ingredients.

    Well I've been up all night, as it were, and I'm terribly disappointed by the lack of photos. Hopefully the delay has allowed time for the costume from eBay to arrive, however. Now I must off to bed...

    The same sound anyone would make while luxuriating in a bath of spicy yoghurt.

    The readings taken are just a snapshot in time. Our cells do not glycate at the same rate nor do they march along in formation like a squadron on parade. The trends upwards/downwards are most important. There is also about a 15% variance +/- with readings.

    Tbh separate threads can help because although these are extremely similar illnesses, they are actually also quite different, so they each have their specificities.
    Having said that, a common thread is a greeeaaat idea! :)))
