    I think being on holiday is quite tricky.
    Pre breakfast 5.3
    Mushroom and egg omelette with a spoon of psyllium whisked in.
    Post breakfast of 5.4

    Lunch - Nando's - chicken and baked sweet potato with some sort of dip

    Pre dinner 6.1
    Steak with pepper sauce and broccoli - 2 glasses of merlot and a scotch
    Post dinner 6.2


    Think I might start testing more frequently. Wonder if that sweet potato is just another veg to avoid?

    Today was a sachet of plain porridge. 7.9 before and 7.3 2 hours later! Might try some fruit with it. Any suggestions?

    Berries seem to be considered the best but watch quantities and fresh or frozen not dried fruit...

    Today so far.....
    Breakfast....scrambled eggs and coffee
    Lunch......so fed up of salad type meals so today I had a Lidl High Protein roll with cheese and onion...waiting to see the numbers after it. I know that having a sandwich for lunch is far more ''normal'' and less fussing about so hope they come in okay for me :nailbiting:.........UPDATE....BG went from 5.2 to 6.2 after 2 hours.....happy with that :D:D
    Dinner...Will be....3 high meat sausages, mushrooms, tomatoes...all cooked in butter and 1/2 Lidl roll
    raspberries and low sugar jelly

    My cinnamon supplement helps me not to feel too hungry, cinnamon dulls hunger pangs! If I feel I must eat in between, I have juicy pears! Yumm
