    I made some chicken salad - chopped-up grilled chicken, sliced broccoli, green onions, red onions, cucumbers, and celery, mixed with mayo and spices. I nearly cried it was so delicious. :)

    At 7g of carbs in a teaspoon of honey, I prefer to stick to sugar free (so carb free) maple syrup ;)

    I just had a very tasty soup with different types of beans, including borlotti beans. It is the first time I have had it and it was thick and tasty.
