    I did the same thing, but with a full fat Fage Greek yogurt, with similar results, and I also found it very sweet, even with the yogurt. I put it down to the yogurt flattening out the spike.

    OK, I am assuming a mince pie is not a pie made of minced beef with a crust. ???

    Please enlighten me, someone. (And then I can post about what chess pie is if anyone would like.)

    @KK123 I tend to think the same way sometimes but I won't do it. The sugar has to go somewhere and with the insulin as Santa's little helper, it'll be made it to fat for when the lean times come. I'll have a small nibble to say I've shared but that's my lot

    No meat at all. Minced up fruit such as raisins, currants, apple, mixed peel, bit of brandy, and such like. Lots of sugar all inside a pastry cup with pastry top. Very much full of glucose but delicious.

    Mince pies used to be spiced meat in a savoury crust - the reduction in cost of sugar, spices, dried fruit, candied peel meant that the meat part was reduced to just the suet. Having tasted a 'real' mince pie, it was very strange, but not at all bad.
    I think some people might have had a problem with discarding the pastry, either from a social angle or just being tempted, or even not wanting to waste food - but it was just before Christmas when my grandmother eventually died from the complications of diabetes, so I have a little extra prompting to do the unusual thing.

    I don't consider that any of my treats have to be of the high carb variety - and most of mine aren't, so I can enjoy them with (carb free!) impunity. But if I do occasionally take a slight dietary diversion into higher carb regions, it's simply a little piece wilful bl**dy minded foolishness on my part rather than "cheating" or "falling off the wagon" and something I know is best avoided for health reasons, but I certainly don't believe I've caused myself a major dietary disaster by doing so. :eek:

    Out on a Christmas do with friends last night.
    Restaurant was the sort of place that if i eliminated carbs there would not be much left on the menu.
    I guess I could have just eaten a piece of meat and a slice of cheese and waited for the others to finish.
    But to hell with that and dove right in!
    The one thing that blew my mind was.. sticky toffee pudding with ice cream, I never eat sweet so its intensity
    was insane so sweet it was almost like eating chillies.
    After that a pub crawl with ales and whiskies.
    I would have been fascinated to have done some bs tests over the evening but have run out of cassettes for my
    monitor.
    I don't think anyone should beast themselves up for the odd festive binge if their bodies can cope.
    Enjoy your festivities people:)

    Thanks for telling me about mince pies. :) They sound a little like fruitcake which is a Christmas tradition (usually bought rather than home-baked). A friend of mine used to bake Christmas fruit cookies that I think were similar too.

    I am sorry to hear about your grandmother, @Resurgam .

    Good name, @mr_cat ^. .^

    well, in the middle ages (as late as the reign of Queen Elizabeth and for all I know later) they were made with minced beef or lamb plus the other ingredients, citrus peel, suet, some booze, raisins, hence mince pies. Nowadays they are made without the meat

    Later edit : Oh dear, I appear to have repeated more or less Resurgam’s info. I must read threads more closely. Sorry all

    You could always have jelly and cream or berries. I make ‘grown up’ sugar free jelly which is 2/3 water and 1/3 wine with berries in it served with cream. For some reason there’s never any left!!

    Hi. Hope you feeling better now. Sadly we all do it occasionally. Won't be first time or last, but the so called hangover is a reminder. Big hugs to you
