    Teriyaki tofu with veg for dinner. Lunch was a cheese sandwich. Breakfast was a doughnut (not usually that unhealthy at breakfast time!).

    A sandwich with sprouted bread, Tofurky slices, Yves fake Canadian Bacon slices and a Follow your Heart American fake cheese slice. With veganaise, yellow mustard and vegan sweet pickle relish, farmers market fresh tomatoes and lettuce! And then to ruin the very healthy sandwich, some crisps!

    All vegan of course for me!

    Half a club sandwich
    Salad with mixed greens and fake bacon on top
    Leftover cup of mashed potatoes, peas and gravy
    Of course, eyes were bigger than what I could actually eat!

    Much later some German Chocolate Cake!

    Yesterday was hit and miss for me. A colleague’s retirement lunch - very bad enchiladas but then a wonderful cheesecake.
    So no room for dinner.

    Hello All - work has been nuts, but trying to keep on track with food. Exercise has been suffering some for the past two weeks - but it’s going on my calendar from here on out.

    B: a “fast bar” (nut based breakfast bar), coffee
    L: Panera Modern Quinoa salad, small apple, handful of marcona almonds
    S: miso soup with tofu and shaved carrots
    D: Madras lentils, side of steamed collard greens

    We had our Vegan Society potluck lunch last Sunday and I never know what's going to be there, all vegan but it could be 10 desserts or none, tons of yams or bean dishes or lots of salads! And on top of that you don't always know when it's actually going to start! So it's one day a month I try not to watch my BG level after I've totally guessed at dosing.

    I think your Work Christmas lunch is probably similar!

    @Marie 2 all the veggie options were very carb heavy but by careful avoidance of some bits and dissecting my meal I got it all right and came in at a 4.7. Success is mine!
    Puff pastry mushroom salad, quiche, caramel biscoff cheesecake.

    Just going to have a tiny bit of baked tofu for dinner.

    I'm having a week of using up all the remaining vegetables topped with cheese then grilled some nights or as omelette the other nights before giving the fridge a really good clean out before restocking. Virtuous on loads of fronts.

    I had a wonderful Beyond Meat Burger on a sprouted bread bun and lettuce, tomato and onion. Then I baked potato wedges with Veg Sal, parsley and oregano and a little olive oil. It was delicious!!!!

    Not normally my "bag."
    But my wife did some rather nice cauliflower steaks the other night.
    It had an Asian flavour.
    I'm rather fond of stuffed mushroom.

    Vegetarian Roasted Veggies and Tofu topped with fresh cabbage from a Mexican restaurant. Whats nice is they cook your veggies and tofu in a separate pan for us vegetarians/vegans. They also home make their tortillas every morning!

    Marinated seitan with broccoli and Daiya alternative cheese
    and lol, forgot to prebolus and bolus when I ate and shot up to 8.9 from a 20 carb meal, I think it was helped by the 50 grams of protein in the seitan.

    The hot chocolate smoothie sounds delicious!

    Leftover moussaka inspired casserole - lots of aubergine, plus vegetarian minced meat and tomato sauce with lots of garlic, mushrooms and onions, a layer of grilled bell peppers and a thick layer of bechamel-based cheese sauce. Not a problem, 35 grams of flour over 6 days (not consecutive days, half is in the freezer for later) still makes for an easy to dose for meal. Other plate is a beet-root salad with warm goat cheese and walnuts, I love how pretty it looks!
