    Well, I did have the aubergine instead of pasta - and it really worked well... really tasty. But so was the cheesy pasta... I must admit to trying a couple of forks, just to make sure there was enough cheese in!

    Today, omelette and cheese, coffee
    Lunch - the very last of the braised oxtail (Can I say that £25 of oxtail and beef cheek has served up 13 portions, costing £1.92 per serving... Free marrow bones for stock and local veggies probably brings that to £2 p/serving...)
    Tonight - Chicken curry - bargain bin chicken thighs, home made garam masala, a stack of aubergines for me and some rice for the OH)

    Snacking on walnuts

    I have tried the Morrisons bread for breakfast, will test at 1 hr and 2hrs. I had two slices toasted with peanut butter, purely in the interests of the experiment of course! (Breakfast is running very late today). First time we have managed to find the LivLife in our Morrisons. Burgen bread does not suit me, Lidl Rolls are OK but not available locally.

    B. 2 boiled eggs with 1sl. BURGEN (going to try the Livlife, wonder if it's as light as Slimcea bread? If so, I'm not keen on that.)

    S. 4 Oatcakes with 2 Babybel

    L. Yesterday's leftovers .. Chicken casserole, carrots, no thickeners. Sugar free jelly & cream. (I snuck an onion bhaji from Morrison's after the chick casserole!!)

    Later. Some noodles (0.1 carbs per 100 get grms) with couple of tablespoons left over cheese sauce & extra grated cheese. Might have small glass red wine.

    Ive just had breaded cod, 1 potato waffle and a whole tin of mushy peas. I don't test very often and have been avoiding carbs as much as possible until today. I just thought id see what happened. My Bg before my meal was 6.3 which is a bit higher than previous but ive been a bit off colour, and two hours after it is 8.0 so im quite pleased with that. Im t2 on metformin x4 a day. I calculated there was about 80g of carbs in my meal tonight. Its not my usual kind of meal, thats my first bit of spud ive had for months.. surprisingly it was the mushy peas that had the highest amount of carbs per 100g.

    Oh dear......my friend "treated " me to afternoon tea .She'd been given it as a present and wanted to take me .Before commencing metformin I said ok.Now LCHF.....on metformin 2000mg but didn't want to disappoint her and not go .So I had coffee....two small sandwiches but on white bread and two little cakes as part of a set selection put on the table .Once back home tested my sugar and OMG it's 12.5.....Beforehand it was 6.5......I can't do that again...but I had to say it was lovely of her to take me...etc etc.
    20 mins on the exercise bike ....down to 10 one hour later 6.5....phew .!!

    Yesterday was again egg & cheese omelet, coffee
    Lunch: last of the chicken stew with some spinach thrown in to pack it out a bit
    Supper: Steak & veggie stack (I really like the aubergine & butternut squash - this time flavoured with thyme & garlic, went very well with the steak)

    I'll be out for lunch, a Mediterranean place up the road that does the best mixed salad and a slice of belly pork. YUM

    Tonight I've offered a burger stack - the boys are swimming tonight, so I'll do burgers for them with buns and fries, then when they're in bed I'll do burgers for us and I'll major on veggies and some of the homemade 'slaw I made at the weekend.

    Off to research how carby celeriac is!

    I may well have a beer, too!
