    You can buy toasted coconut in health shops, H&B.
    If you like the taste of coconut have you tried to make a kind of 'white chocolate' with it?

    Melt one packet of creamed coconut over low heat until soft and creamy (dont overheat it). mix with 200g coconut oil or even better would be organic cocoa butter (<< really does taste chocolatey!), scrape out a vanilla pod or use vanilla powder, sweetener to taste, stir all ingredients together, pour into chocolate moulds, leave to cool in the fridge or freezer.

    Goodness I feel quite the porker after reading what everyone else eats...

    Today I had
    Full fat Greek yoghurt with double cream for brekkies (breakfast bowl was almost full)
    Salad of cheese, tomato, cucumber, celery and mayo, plus a bowl of strawberries and double cream... couldn't eat it all so half the salad is in the fridge at work for lunch tomorrow
    Bacon and Eggs, followed by yoghurt, double cream and coconut oil/peanut concoction for dinner

    Think I might have eaten too much as my tummy is a bit full... oops!

    I liked to eat pure coconut cube as they sell in caribean shop:) beck in time, thinking what i was craving for, it finally could give me signs of something is wrong. in last two years i loved to eat :tomatoes, garlic, onion,buchweisen,or white yoghurt. onion and garlic i could eat tons of it. now i see why i craved it.

    today i felt good without no hungryness and no signs of hypo.i dont know why.

    breakfast- brown rice with beans brocoli and cheese
    peace of bread with garlic butter
    few wheat and rye crackers
    dinner brown rice with tommatioes and tuna.
    drinked quite lot green tea today.

    Would this suit you?

    Soups and stews with meat, veg and low GI foods like pearl barley are tasty, filling and nutritious. By adding spices to them, you can make them a little more like a chinese or an indian.

    Fish works especially well for me. If I ate only fish, I'd be permanently in the 4s. I like fish like herring, on full corn breads. This is a cold herring salad with beetroot:

    Buchweisen? Do you mean buchweizen, buckwheat? What do you do with that? Despite its name, it's not a grain but it sounds as if you can use it like one?

    Mmmm, I like buckwheat too, always used to make a buckwheat tabbouleh as a side dish when we barbecue. I just found this recipe http://www.tarladalal.com/Moong-and-Buc ... chdi-3506r which looks interesting, might try it as an alternative to rice for my next homemade curry, tried cauliflower rice and it was ok, but I'm never going to be a lover of cauli

    Hi Mrs Jet,

    I find that cream in coffee leaves bits on the top that reminds me of stale milk, is this something im doing wrong as it puts me off?
