    These all make me feel terribly guilty. I started well with Greek yoghurt, mixed berries and home made granola baked with coconut flakes, sunflower and pumpkin seeds, walnuts, linseed mixed with coconut oil, ginger and cinnamon. Four hours sleep last night then put paid to will power and I had a mincemeat tart with my coffee! 8.4 before lunch so two slices of back bacon and scrambled egg.

    I had a most amazingly colourful lunch today. It was all left overs from the last couple of days (I am feeding 2 families with lots of different dietary requirements). The pink slaw is easy to make: red cabbage, white cabbage, Greek yoghurt and a splash of white wine vinegar (a Tom Kerridge recipe).
    My dear friend (who I lost last year) told me of the benefits of eating the colours of the rainbow. I know she'd have been impressed. IMG_20201229_142635.jpg

    Today, for the first time since being diagnosed and sticking to the high fat, low carb diet and having given up booze (temporarily) 9 days ago, I fell off the wagon and ate home-made burger in a big brown bun, sweet potato fries, ketchup, mayo, the works. I was 5.8 before it, which is low for me, usually about 8. Two hours after eating I was 10.1, felt a bit dizzy, eyes blurry. I knew I shouldn't eat it but I did. I suppose these mistakes are what I will learn from. I won't be doing that again.

    Some fab recipes on this thread and my food today has been:

    B - 2 poached eggs, some spinach, Greek yogurt and some almonds

    L - Tomato and basil soup, 2 sesame oatcakes and a teeny bit of Brie

    D - will be chicken breast and roasted tomatoes with peppers, onions. Glass of Merlot

    All cooked by the other half - left to me it would be a Fawlty Towers experience with starvation likely :)

    I made a great salad for lunch. Consisting of romaine, sliced red pepper, sliced Granny Smith apple, fresh parsley, a few mixed olives, cherry tomatoes, avocado and lemon juice and black pepper. It was really satisfying.
