    Breakfast: Bit of a treat, french toast (using 2 slices of almond flour bread)

    Lunch: Tuna salad

    Snack: 2 squares of 85% dark choc

    Dinner: Salmon with cauliflower rice and green beans

    For supper later I've baked an almond flour cup cake :D

    SamJB,

    Have you used almond flour for pizza bases? It works really well, and it's a bit like an italian crispy base. If you want it more deep pan you can add a bit of bicarb/baking soda so it rises slightly, only 4g of carbs too!

    Almonds are my miracle food, they lower my BG and can be used in so many different recipes, I don't think I could do without them now :)

    Well yesterday was sinful Saturday, bacon and black pudding rolls and strong coffee for breakfast, big Mac meal (with diet coke!) for lunch. Fish and chips from chippy for tea and a movie munch of cherry bakewells and a huge bag of onion rings washed down with two of those big bottles of cobra beer. Lovely!

    Breakfast: two poached eggs, 3 slices of microwave bacon, one slice of Burgen bread

    Lunch: rump steak and a salad at Wetherspoons (had to persuade them that I really didn't want the chips and peas to even be on the plate!)

    Tea: Leek carbonara (pasta substitute - cut leek into fine strips a bit like tagliatelle, microwave for 5 mins and then stir fry in butter). Carbonara was shop bought sauce. Salad made with 1 chopped avocado, three cherry tomatoes, low fat mozzarella, fresh basil leaves and a cider vinegar and olive oil dressing. Realists when I was toting up afterwards that leek does have some carbs, but for the portion I had, only about 6g so not too bad. For reference, breakfast came in at 8.7g, lunch at 0.5g and dinner at 21g.

    Yesterday:

    Breakfast: feta and avocado salad with a handful of mixed seeds (5.6g)
    Lunch: Nando's grilled chicken breast and a portion of olives (negative carbs -3.7g)
    Dinner: roast duck (0), asparagus (0.5), baby spinach salad (0.5), 3 Anya New Potatoes (10.5g - not worth it IMO - more carbs than I'd had for the whole day! Won't bother again)

    Well, it's how my diabetes app calculates it, but basically if something doesn't have any carbs (or hardly any) but lots of fibre, then it gives the value as a negative presumably because the fibre slows down the absorption of any carbs that you are having in the rest of the meal. If that's cheating then I don't want to know lol <covers ears la la la la la>

    Although tbh, it's only olives that it ever seems to apply to.

    The desert at last night's meal out - did too much 'damage' :(
    It was like a cheese cake and far too sweet for my liking :thumbdown:
    Was up twice in the night feeling its affects ...
    Will omit any desserts in the future at meals out !!!

    Breakfast . Coffee

    Lunch . Prawn Salad . Melon/grapes kiddies box .

    Tea . Feta cheese n sliced tomato on few crackers . Coffee .

    [not eaten much today as still wonky after last nights meal - it was that ruddy dessert ! ]

    Anna.
