    Breakfast scrambled egg bacon
    Lunch cheese and spinach frittata and coleslaw and salad from deli..coleslaw was delicious ( must have had zillions of calories as soooo creamy) but frittata a bit bland.
    Dinner chicken faijtas, stir fried onion and peppers and feta in iceberg wraps ; small portion almond flour crumble and creme Fraiche
    Snacks cheese and a soya latte

    @Brunneria I stocked up on peanut 9 bars today. Wow they are so good. Quite sweet though as I haven't eaten anything like that for ages and filling so won't overeat!. Couldn't test today but will try to tomorrow.

    breakfast black pudding, mushrooms, bacon
    lunch bacon and cheese frittata, salad
    dinner chicken, chorizo and chickpea stew , green beans, broccoli
    snack soya latte, slice ham
    Also had to have a sq dark chocolate at 3pm because I started shaking and was so cold- tested and 3.7 so suspect I was starting to go hypo. Beginning to wonder if some of the things I've put down to panic attacks are not actually just low blood sugars.

    Alliebee it wasn't rice it was just cauliflower but once cut up and curry over the top it honestly was just like rice. I had read about it and thought yuck but today I tried it and liked it.
