I had a fairly cheap Sunday lunch today. Bacon (done in the air fryer for a change), steamed sprouts and (proper) broccoli, mushrooms, and the last of my Jersey Royals. Hopefully it was all low carb enough to qualify.

Started the day with black coffee and a h/b egg to accompany meds. Then off to Somerset to visit daughter.
Took advantage of there being a Nando’s nearby: chicken thighs, halloumi, broccoli, and rainbow slaw. Dogs not allowed in but luckily there were tables outside and it wasn’t too chilly.
Hoped that would be enough food for the day but no, I got hungry when we got back. Had a flaxseed bun with Cornish blue cheese, few nuts and a glass of red. It feels like it’s been a long day, but it’s just down to a lot of travelling.

Yes, Beenleigh Blue is a star @MommaE. Now made in Totnes, Devon, it was created by illustrious cheesemaker, Robin Congdon, who also pioneered the first blue goat's cheese to be made in England, Harbourne Blue, using milk from his own herd. Both are magnificent cheeses, but Beenleigh is my favourite.

I made a very nice beef and onion stew, slow cooked for some 6 hours the old fashioned way.
Enough for at least 4 days, I'll try a new job tomorrow, and if it works out I don't expect to have any energy left for cooking.

Beef, onions, garlic, a tomato, tomato paste, various spices and mustard on a slice of LC bread stewed along for some binding.
Had it with a buttered slice of LC bread.

I’ve been listening to Chris van Tulleken’s Ultra processed People on Audible recently ( I know a couple of others on here have read it) it’s only just dawned on me that SRSLY bread is actually an ultra processed food. I only really paid attention to the carb count originally. I have a freezer full to use up but there will be no more after that.
I’ve been meaning to say, take a look at the Low Carb Food company bread. That’s the company I always use. I buy their rolls, loaves and pizza bases. their email today reminded me to order more and tell you!

Thank you. I meant to add later that I’d looked at these and the ingredients are so much better than SRSLY. The bread is very good too I agree. I’ll swap to this bread as soon as my SRSLY stash is gone. Must remember to cancel my subscription.

I can’t actually remember if I had breakfast today which is a bit of a worry.
Lunch was prawns and h/m chilli mayo in a SRSLY roll then a DGF Crimbo crumble found in the freezer. Hurrah.
Dinner was late. Too late to cook what I’d intended so ended up being a M&S burger with smoked cheese and gherkins glass of red and a few nuts.
