    B fasting
    L cauli rice with sausage casserole
    D egg roll, just an omlette and rolled it.
    Felt hungry as I dint have anything so had a few nuts.
    Saw wife having a chocolate cake, I don't like sweets, don't know what happened yesterday, gave in and had a massive slice of it, I had to test and did a 1 hour as 2 hour would have been too late for me but it's pure sugar so should have peaked in 1 and I got 4.8, retested 4.9 so it was all good.
    Happy with that I slept like a baby only till 4am as I have to be at work early
    Fasting was 4.7 so I presume it would have stayed good :p

    Fish:
    I have fish nearly every Tuesday, it's when the man from Arbroath delivers, so it is good and fresh.
    Haddock and have always bread crumbed it...
    The last two previous nights were both 6.8 2 hour post.
    Last night, with ground almonds, 6.0.... and I have to say it was really pretty acceptable... will try it on other such items, veal and pork come to mind.

    It's the quaker oats sachets I use. I put more milk in though. Also fills you up. I find my bg doesn't go up high like others. Try the original one first. Good luck :)
