    Doesn't taste of much really but reportedly helps to balance blood sugars (google it) even though it has about 10g carbs as sugars per fruit. Not cheap but 1 lasts me 4 days. Just thought to give it a whirl. Got mine in Morrisons.

    Hello all. I've been reading this thread frequently since I returned to lchf last week after my absence for a few months as I had fallen off the wagon. I think your ideas for food are great so I thought I would join in.
    Breakfast. Raspberries with Greek style yoghurt :)

    @mehhh2015 thank you. I like chia seeds but I must confess I'm not keen on the strong taste and smell of flax seed. :)
