    Sausage and egg for brekkie. Forgot to eat. Went into town. Ate I mini frittata from M&S but Ive been very naughty. I ate 1/2 a raspberry bakewell in costa coffee and felt very dizzy 20 mins later. Serves me right. Then just split the other half with my eldest. We then went on to play bowling so I ordered the platter as all the other things came with chips. The platter also came with chips. It was for 4 people who were size zero. Everything had breadcrumbs but I avoided the chips and bread, eating 4 jalapeño peppers with cream cheese, I mozzarella thing, 1 veggie thing (indescribable with mysterious origins) 2 onion rings and that was it. Bs 6.5 but feel hungry. Back to sensible eating tomorrow.

    Helst vispgrädde, men i UK har ni så många olika typer av grädde så jag ville inte specifisera. Cream will do. The fatter the better probably though.

  4. I had a feast last night. My friend came to dinner. She is a non-diabetic, dairy-dodging omnivore - so the exact opposite of me lol

    We had similar to last night's dinner but with extras.

    Coconut lime cauliflower rice
    Veg curry
    Spicy chickpea curry
    Minty yogurt

    Raspberry ruffles for pudding. They are Ewelina's bounty truffles, but pink and raspberry flavoured. They have a bit of dairy in them, but not enough to kill my guest.

    The chickpea curry is obviously quite high carb, but the carbs are slow ones and have not bothered my bg. The recipe is from a cook book produced by my local curry house. The book means I can can now adapt their amazing curries so I can eat them :)

    So anyway...

    Breakfast: Cheesy omelette
    Lunch: Greek yogurt, veg cherry jelly, strawberries. Creamy decaf.
    Dinner: "Purple" sprouting broccoli with sun-dried tomatoes in low carb cheese sauce with a few cashews on top.
    Later: Bit of 85% chocolate.

    An interesting day.

    Green smoothie (spinach, courgette, pineapple and frozen cherries) for breakfast
    Fasting BG 7.9!!! Prob due to cold/virus.
    2 hrs after smoothie, down to 6.1. Great result!

    No lunch, due to no hunger

    Light supper:
    2 eggs fried in glorious butter with two slices Livlife bread toast.
    BG before, 5.6
    2 hrs after, 6.2

    But I think I will be snaffling some cheese later, because my appetite is returning...

    My daughter has just walked into the kitchen and complained about the smell of the casserole which I am cooking.
    i only use double cream. Does that make me a bad person?!!!!

    I live in a terraced town house with a tiny garden full of other things. I used to have rhubarb in a previous garden. Happy days. But I have packs of frozen rhubarb already and waiting - I buy in season and freeze. That way it is always 'just picked'. :happy:

    Today's food:
    Brekkie: green smoothie - pineapple, cherry, spinach, courgette, macadamia nuts
    Elevenses: 2 squares Lindt dark choc
    Lunch: Thai chicken and veg soup
    Snack: morsel of salmon and cream cheese
    Evening: moussaka and stuffed courgette followed by rhubarb with cinnamon and double cream (thanks Totto!)
