    The cocoa is either Lidl or Aldi both fairly low carb and cheap. Waking is courtesy of some medication. Celagne works best, IMHO, when celeriac is cut thinly with a mandolin in 3 layers. We tend to use mozzarella slices rather than faffing about with a sauce and top with grated mozzarella.

    4 egg celery and mushroom omelette, cooked in 4 tablespoons of butter, sometimes cooked with fresh raw cashews and flaxseeds.

    3 chicken legs with green salad and chilli peppers with 2 tablespoon of olive oil sprinkled with 2 tablespoons of flaxseeds. 1 cup of black English tea.

    I eat almost the same way everyday and fast for 16 to 18 hours. My window for eating is about 6 to 8 hours with 3 large bulletproof coffees during the fast before my first meal.

    My fasting blood sugar is around 5.4 or 98 every day.

    Hotel Chocolat chocs are definitely the friendliest and most considerately made treats.
    I saw your menu just in time Trisha caught my son on his way home!!

    Roll on tomorrow (or the next day)
