  5. B: cheese omelette
    L: M&S super seeds. Soya decaf
    D: 2 Linda Mac sausages, celeriac chips, dip

    I thought yesterday's creamed cashew and red pepper stuff was a bit bland so upcycled it into a tastier dip today by blending in some fresh basil, sun dried tomatoes and black pepper. Much better. Here is the original recipe http://itdoesnttastelikechicken.com/2014/12/30/creamy-red-pepper-cashew-dip/

  8. What was in the chia recipe? Maybe you could change the berry to nut ratio to make the bg rise more gentle. Or try eating it later in the day. I find I can't eat many carbs for breakfast as my well meaning liver usually starts my day off higher than I would like. I can tolerate more carbs later in the day.
     
  9. Yesterday I was the same as the day before but with lidl roll toast and peanut butter for lunch.

    I do use the lidl rolls sometimes for a pizza or cheese on toast, also tried making a pizza with cauliflower base which wasn't so successful in terms of looks but tasted OK.

    I value my toes more than I desire high carb foods but sometimes the smell of the families foods makes it tough, much easier when they are eating stinky meat stuff - definitely don't want that :)

    Will have to plan ahead and get a lidl roll for next "pizza night" I always seem to forget until the smell of pizza wafts out of the kitchen :banghead:

  18. Where did you get the almond cheese? Was it firm or crumbly? Good? Spill the beans. Please and thank you :)
     
  19. B: cheese omelette
    L: Livlife toast and peanut butter. Soya decaf
    D: creamy avocado courgetti topped with toasted flaked almonds (from the avocado thread) I would recommend it. Don't forget the lemon zest at the end as that gave it a real lift. http://ohsheglows.com/2011/01/31/15-minute-creamy-avocado-pasta/

    Maybe have a hot chocolate later
