    Can’t offer a photo, as it wasn’t on plate for long.

    It is the law in our house that on Sunday a big full breakfast is devoured, late morning.

    Today pork sausage, smoked bacon, mushrooms, haggis slice, egg, low carb bread fried in the fat of the bacon, lots of black coffee.

    Nothing else needed until evening dinner.

    A bowl of instant oats; and if I've got my insulin calculated correctly I don't get a spike in my glucose level.

    Water on waking, followed a bit later by a mug of mocha (coffee/cocoa mix) with stevia drops and a largish squirt of hazelnut "milk".
