  4. Brunch: green smoothie :wtf: and I can still feel it inside me now
    Dinner: courgetti in sun dried tomato sauce with roast veg and flaked almonds. Lidl roll garlic bread fingers
    Pudding: 85% chocolate strawberries. I have been calling them Creme Eggs all day, but obviously they are not the same - they have more vitamin c for starters

    Yesterday was a very active day so more carbs than usual- Normally I only have one slice of toast a day, but was low-ish when I came home to test and eat and still had an active afternoon ahead.

    B. One slice of Burgen Toast, Greek yogurt and satsuma
    L. Two slices of Burgen toast, chunk of Brie and cherry tomatoes
    D. Steamed broccoli, cauliflower, green pepper, mushrooms with Quorn cocktail sausages. A few raspberries and double cream.

    Easter Day

    B; half a hot cross bun, raspberries and double cream.
    L; Mushroom and leek omelette followed by a creme egg. (First chocolate since last July. I won't be repeating the experiment, I felt dreadful until I'd been for a 5 mile walk! As I really don't like dark chocolate, it's definitely the end of chocolate in my life.)
    D; Quorn cocktail sausages, lettuce, cherry tomatoes

  12. Oh I did! It was so sweet and juicy :D

    Are you ok with never eating chocolate again? A good way to make dark chocolate less bitter and more interesting is to make it into bark - melt it then pour it on to a tray so it is nice and thin then sprinkle with things such as nuts, lime zest, sea salt, chilli flakes or a little dried fruit. Leave it in the fridge to set then break into random pieces.

    Thank you for the suggestion. But I am OK with never eating chocolate again. I also think my tastes have changed over the last 8 months or so, and I didn't enjoy it as I once would have neither did I want more.

    Luckily, I work with older teenagers/young adults who are more than happy to help me out with eating up any chocolates I'm given. (They now live in a cupboard at work and this year are essay crisis encouragement and getting through exam rewards!)

    B: Two slices of Burgen toast (7 mile walk planned - half before lunch and half after)
    Lunch: Omelette, mushrooms and tomatoes
    Snacks after walk (as I forgot my lunch time Metformin) raspberries and double cream.
    Dinner: Last of the Quorn cocktail sausages, brie, lettuce, cherry tomatoes and packet of crisps.

    I then did another walk as when I checked the earlier walk, I'd only done just under 6 and was most miffed. With the evening walk, I got to a total of 10.2 miles. so was most pleased :) Just had a few pine nuts as a reward for both the walks and keeping to good levels all day!

    Outdoor. I'm walking as much of the 3 miles to/from work as possible in term time, to the supermarket 2 miles away for the weekly shop and some of the way home (I currently give up at the bottom of the hill with shopping and succumb to the bus for that last mile) and trying for at least 5 miles a day most days in the holidays! I can tolerate more carbs when I'm walking more and go no or very low carb on days I do less walking or other physical activity.

    B. Raspberries and double cream. 1 slice Burgen toast.
    L. Scrambled eggs and mushrooms, 2 slices wholemeal toast.
    D. Steamed broccoli, cauliflower, orange pepper, courgette, cherry tomatoes and mushroom with garlic and chive Philadelphia cheese.
