    Just spent 10 bloody minutes writing a reply on that thread to find it's locked or whatever when I hit post reply! Arghhh. Maybe this should go on the scream thread!
    Have now managed to reply on that thread!

    Recipe in todays paper for "sugar free" apple crumble (actually apple and raspberry crumble but let's not split hairs) in the apples was 3 tbsp of honey and 1 tbsp in the crumble mix. Honey is still sugar in another form. Same with the silly Davina McColl "sugar free" cooking book where the recipes had ridiculous quanties of maple syrup and honey :mad:

    I guess if the recipes were using flour we could also argue that would break down to sugar too.

    I could kick myself for waiting so long before posting on here and asking for help. Is there a kick me up the backside smiley? The welcome I received has been and still is tremendous.
    So the waiting deserves a scream :arghh::arghh::arghh::arghh::arghh::arghh::arghh::arghh::arghh:
    the welcome, an applause (no applause smiley) so I'll :singing::singing::singing::singing::singing::singing::singing::singing: praises instead

    It's a steep learning curve at first and difficult to turn around previously held healthy eating beliefs.....whilst they hold true in many ways and for many people it has to be rethought for anyone diagnosed with (pre) diabetes. Lots of tweaking needed. Have patience with yourself x you WILL get there....

    Just got a delivered (thru box but not posted) letter to attend an interview for fly tipping ... Gave friend a load of boxes for moving house and think her landlord must e dumped the unused ones with rubbish when they cleared old flat out. Grrrrrrrrrr.
    So if you ever give boxes away for moving don't leave your address on them....and half way thru writing this Bligh started digging compost pile out....nor worried abt that, just hope he's not started his paw bleeding again..
