    For lunch today I chopped green chilli, red pepper and onion and added it to a bowl with white crab meat, grated lime zest in and stirred in some mayonnaise with a little pepper and salt - I ate it on thin slices of home-made almond bread.... lush....I might squeeze in a little bit of lime juice next time... Chicken stew for supper with a whole boiled chicken, stock reduced and then all the low-carb veggies chopped and thrown in... chicken added to the bowl as I serve the broth... I hope my levels are down a bit later - poor sleep last night and it seems to push them up... :(

    Hi

    Have a look at this thread. The mug cake recipe is in the list.

    To make it peanutty or chocolaty, I cook it, as per recipe then dump a teasp of peanut butter on top, or a square of 70% cocoa solid choc (or both :happy:). They melt. Divine.

    OMG I bought a variety box from 9bar directly as I couldn't find any in my local supermarket. Then my mate found the peanut ones in Asda and brought them for me. I am in love these are the best thing since sliced bread literally!

    The peanut ones hardly give me a rise, nor do the flax, the original or the Pumpkin ones. I've yet to try the fruity One yet but I am expecting that will give me a high rise cause of the fruit. The coco and raspberry indulgence ones are fab also nearly forgot them and about 0.5 of a rise. I think I have found my new chocolate bars!! I now always carry one with me where ever I go lol I think I'm addicted :)

    Breakfast bacon scrambled eggs
    Lunch heathy tuna and cheese savoury from deli - all I could taste was mayonnaise. Not nice.
    Dinner out to cinema and rushing when got in so had slow cooker beef stew with swede and few carrots in it and tablespoon of peas and a very naughty frozen Yorkshire pudding. Did 25 minutes peddling 6.1 at 1hr. Hopefully lower at 2.

    At 2hrs I got 7.2 ( yikes) 6.5 and 6.2 so I guess I'll take the 6.5. Interesting that the peak wasn't at 1hr which I'd sort of assumed it would be being a fast acting floury carb. Something to mark down as very rare treat.

    5.7 at 3hrs.
