    Nothing so far - tea and sparkling water. I'm trying to drive down my overnight BG which is invariably >7. This evening I'll have a large pork chop some cauliflower and a couple of pieces of 85% chocolate

    Hi Dave, I can't make fried halloumi work. It just tastes like salty rubber. Any suggestions?

    1 egg, bacon, salad with homemade mustard sauce (no sweetener), mushrooms. For some reason it spiked my BS 1 hour later. I drink about 100 ounces of water daily. First thing most mornings, I have a glass of diet cranberry juice which is sugar free and so far has never spiked my BS. The past week I have been drinking a few ounces of a new product, "Mio Liquid Water Enhancer"
    in fruit punch flavour. I was under the impression it was safe to drink but now going to have to watch it the next couple of days to see if that is what caused a large spike this morning.

    Can't have those things. I'm a diabetic you know. I did forget the red wine though. I have glass with every evening meal just for the anti-oxidants. And the rest of the bottle coz I like it.

    Mine also squeaked so although I did quite enjoy it I felt I was eating live rubber bands!:eek:

    Unfortunately my fried Halloumi occasionally tended to stick a bit to the bottom of the pan - my (jnsert rude word here) husband kicked up such a fuss if this happened and I left the pan soaking a little before washing up that I gave up! Some things are never meant to be....:banghead:

    It may be a female thing. My wife thought it was fine too. Or maybe she was just trying to encourage my cooking ;-)
