    I had oats for breakfast with nuts and blueberries. Lunch was half a bowl of brown rice with fenugreek leaves and dhals (which made sugar reading go to 10.9 post prandial) and for dinner mozzarella balls with cherry tomatoes. Went for a walk and checked, it's 3.9! (Still haven't taken after dinner medicine).

    For breakfast today I had 1 slice of toast with a small amount of jam and a coffee. For lunch I had 3 crackers with cheese and coffee and one naughty mince pie with cream. For dinner some lettuce, baby tomatoes, ham, avocado, coleslaw and a little salad cream and a few crisps. Back to strict carb counting on Monday.
