    I recently went to an Indian restaurant, my first time since diagnosis, works Xmas do so I had no choice! I chose a chicken, coconut and cream curry with red cabbage coleslaw. No naans, poppadoms etc... I don’t drink so just had Diet Pepsi. I got a 5.2 pre lunch and 5.7 two hours later. I think I was lucky with my choices, it really is winging it as you just don’t know when they’ll fling sugar into the recipe!

    Out of curiosity I weighed the chapati last night - it was 96g. Checking today I see we can expect half of the weight to be carbs, so 50g-ish. Which is as much as I would ever have in a meal these days.

    Rachox seems to have it right - tandori chicken would seem a decent bet along with a veg side dish? Red wine (which may not "go")

    I’m sure that’ll be the same for many of us, I miss a decent port with cheese.
