    I am trying to remember what I ate today because my blood sugar has been great all day. (Someone dinged me to another's post of eating disorder-how rude!)
    Yesterday-I had oatmeal, cheetos, an apple, a very small banana, 2 slices pepperoni pizza, 16 oz. 2% milk and half a Braum's chicken raspberry walnut salad yesterday, and about 1 and 1/2 oz. peanuts and lots of water.
    today: (fasting blood sugar 126 mg/dl this morning at 7am.)
    Breakfast: 1 packet Better Oats with flax brown sugar maple flavor, 1 cup coffee with 2 oz 2% milk, 1 slice Orowheat Healthnut bread with butter and 1 teaspoon Amish apple butter
    Lunch: half of a Jimmy's Egg garbage breakfast (that's what it is actually called on the menu-it has hash browns, two eggs over easy, cheese, green bell peppers, onions), 1 slice buttered whole wheat toast (blood sugar 107 mg/dl 2 hours after lunch)
    Snack: 1 Honey crisp apple,
    Dinner: Lean Cuisine Turkey and dressing with apples, 1 miniature banana, water
    I am comfort eating and the menu is what I was eating before I joined the forum and my blood sugar is better than it has been for weeks. I also mowed the lawn and walked today. The election is finally over although the result was terrible. So I ate more, exercised more, and stressed less today than usual.

    What is a low carb toad in the hole? We make a slice of bread with a hole in the center, fried with an egg in the hole.

    TitH is a beef or pork sausage laden batter pudding.

    I suppose one of the forum recommended low carb flour alternatives are needed for the batter mix, to give it the legal name "Low Carb Toad in the Hole". :D

    Toad in the hole is (British) sausages cooked in Yorkshire pudding batter - a British dish (never heard of it being found elsewhere...). Some American friends of mine were not amused when they found out what black pudding was.....:wideyed:.....after they'd eaten it!



    PS Tipetoo beat me to it!

    Sorry messed up my links:

    http://christinebailey.co.uk/recipe/paleo-toad-in-the-hole/

    I'm still tweaking it slightly but this recipe creates a pretty good batter. Watch the carbs in the sausages you choose.
