    Breakfast: blueberries and almonds, eaten surreptitiously while in a Zoom meeting.
    Lunch: grilled cheese sandwich on low-carb bread - this bread is a recent discovery and will be a game changer. It seriously doesn't do anything to my blood sugar.
    Snacks: cucumbers with some spice, some Cambozola cheese. And one small tomato.
    Dinner: Spring rolls after finding my favorite shop delivers! Took two apart to eat the contents and not the wrappers and vermicelli but did eat one whole and BOOM went the glucose. I think one of them also had some sugar in the shrimp paste stuff. Whoopsy.

    As usual, did not drink enough water.

    I have eaten a poached egg every day for breakfast for years, but my (new) doctor says that T2's should not eat more than one egg a week. I asked why and he said 'that is NHS guidelines'. I couldn't find it on the NHS site - has anyone else been told this?

    My NP tells me one egg a day is fine, but I don't eat the every day.

    How is Food Lion on low-carb and other "low" food items? There is one about 15 miles from me that I've been wanting to try. I've never lived anywhere near one before. The grocery store near me is pretty limited so I'm curious about Food Lion.
