    I must do this often enough because my local McDonald's always puts a knife and fork in the bag and puts the melted cheese in between the egg and sausage patty!

    Today: 0% Oikos Greek yogurt topped with some blueberries. Switching to some lower fat choices these days after taking in the latest Diet Doctor podcast with Ted Naiman.

    Snack (3pm): Sun Chips (like a thin wheat cracker), black coffee

    What an embarrassing day of carb intake, although per my Libre I tolerated it better than expected. Anyway no sense pretending it didn't happen, getting back on the straight and narrow today.

    Wow, that was over a year ago. Back then my “control” and number taking was all over the place. Now I’m averaging well within the Sicky-Sixes

    Good morning

    I didnt know what u wanted for breakfast this morning so I made these little egg muffins

    Made 6 deep muffins
    4x eggs
    Chopped up ham
    1x red pepper chopped
    1x tomato fresh chopped

    Beat the eggs then put in muffin tin, put all the chopped bits in each, popped in the oven for around 20 mins.

    They came out lovely I'm cutting even more carbs out this week as they make me feel really bloated and aweful, you can keep them in the fridge too for a quick snack xxx 20210615_113336.jpg
