    Hi Kristin. It is so great that you are back! I’m so sorry you are allergic to avocado. My diet mimics what yours used to be, and I’d be lost without the avo, so good work you ! Best wishes Leeanne

    P.S Have you tried flaxseeds? They are very low carb and moderate protein. I mix them with some almond milk, leave them till they soften up a bit, then eat. Yummy!

    Hi Kristin and welcome back - I'm sorry to hear that our Avocado Queen is allergic to her favourite food - it must have been quite a blow for you! I hope you can find a sutable replacement that will be better for you.

    I’m just eating some veg or salad.
    I’ve had a few acupuncture treatments for digestion which seem to be successful. Though I don’t think I can change much due to staying low carb.
    Everything was so simple with avocado keeping everything so stable. Without dairy and nuts fats are hard to come by. Duck fat, olives and olive oil are my main fats.

    Nice to see you too!!!! It’s been awhile. Hope you’re well!!

    Hi @Robbity ! Hope you’re well!
    It was a blow and it wasn’t. I had a sneaky suspicion but pushed the ignore button. Another one bites the dust lol. Onward and upward right?

    It said the file was too big. I’ll see if I can shrink it

    Delighted to see you Kristin, hope you've been keeping well despite the problems with avocado !! (of all things! :meh:)
    Must admit, I don't buy many avos these days - for some reason they all taste 'off', a bit dry, no flavour, no creaminess that they used to have. I haven't been around much myself these past few months (other things going on); I 'lurk' a bit sometimes, just to see what's going on.

    Hope you manage to find a really good substitute eventually. Isn't that just like life - you think you've got it cracked & then something throws a spanner in the works and beggars it all up :rolleyes:

    The Peruvian avos I buy haven't been so good lately. Waitrose only had South African this week, I bought two but they were worse. I might give avos a miss until the good Peruvian ones come back.

    Hi @Salvia ! I lurked on occasion as well. Didn’t see much of you!!
    I sure don’t miss incubating them all the time!
    I’m just eating some random veggies instead. Found ones that work well so just another day!
    But the thought of never dipping into a little guac is a bit over whelming. Haha

    Hope you’re well. Good to see you again

    Sorry dear lady @Kristin251, I am a leader not a follower.

    We got some nice Hass avo's for 2 for $3.00 last week, and they are excellent in a lower carb bread sandwich. Will think of you at lunch time. :D

    Yes it is legal here in Canada, I have taken a non THC hemp oil which has helped calm down my blood sugar levels, I am happy with the results, no more swings or cravings haha
