    A bit more haddock, and a Spanish omelette, 4.5u so a unit less for around 45g carbs less, which is odd but works :)

    Indian style chicken curry and back to rice as I've had a rest from rice during the lockdown. 4.5u Humalog now and I'd guess another 3u at supper.

    Broccoli, sugar snap peas & shallot hiding under the sauce with a poached egg too. :p

    The Saturday night special :) 4.5u now with a blood sugar of 4.1 from a gentle slope down after riding the pushbike, I'll probably not use as much for the later correction dose and rely on sleeping up at 9 or 9 to counter the likely bike ride hypo catching up in the early hours, anyway, chicken Madras, a keema naan bread and saag (spinach) bhaji, which cooked in ghee isn't the healthiest spinach I've eaten this week but it is by far the tastiest :p

    Standard breakfast for the last umpteen years, porridge egg & bread, 2 slices today but it can vary depending on my waking level, 5u Humalog and I'll spike to 8 before dropping and needing a rich tea biscuit to level off.

    Lunch doesn't feel so far away :p

    Lunch
    Yummy huge bowl of fresh zucchini and yellow squash stir fry and 5 spice seitan pieces.
    Fresh pineapple and grapes.

    Dinner/snack
    Mixed veggies with tempeh
    Chocolate pudding made with blended tofu and melted vegan chocolate chips!

    I had to guess at insulin dose with how much squash did I eat? I ate a lot lol..........But actually did quite well with a few more grapes and pineapple added.

    2 Weetabix for the first course and eggs Benedict for breakfast, I don't usually eat fatty foods but it was a good brand of bacon in the markdown fridge and it jumped in my basket as I passed by :p
    5u Humalog which is 0.5u less than the standard breakfast.
