    And free. I collect some every day whilst walking the dog. People probably think I am very good clearing up after my dog and taking it home but the bag contains blackberries. (dog uses the garden).

    Delicious!
    And a perfick bg pre/post

    I don’t still have the exact bg numbers, but my usual Xmas dinners always give back a stonkingly even result that lasts about 18 hours.

    1 large steak, cooked rare
    Fried onion rings
    Crumbled Stilton
    Green salad (large, and v optional)
    With mayo on the salad, or butter on the steak.
    I sometimes add balsamic or Pom syrup too for that festive pzazzz.

    The trick is to eat so much steak that the thought of Xmas nibbles is unappealing ;)

    Sorry Mr Pot, I have a image of you going out to pick berries on your walk and the one day your dog does his business in the park you get home, open the bag of berries and find something very different. :hungover::banghead:

    As you can imagine, I am very careful to avoid that problem! My wife was alarmed the first time I put the bag in the fridge without mentioning it.
