    I'm not a lover of beans so don't miss them really, had mushrooms, peppers, onions, leeks and toms though - it was yum.

    I love beans, all sorts of beans apart from the broad beans (the ones that look like green butter beans)

    Tea - broth with a little bit of mash on the side and half one of those mini crusty part baked rolls (baked obviously :D) 5.8 at about 2.5 hrs post
    Snacks - erm, a peanut, popcorn dark choc bar, a handful of fruit & nuts, 3 squares of dark, sugar free chocolate

    Thank you for that... There's no time to experiment with every single thing.. I love sage and onion stuffing in sausage meat.. Fresh sage and onion sautéed in butter is easy, but what to use as breadcrumbs? Or would a few matter? Maybe those Japanese ones?

    I ate it with beans and it didn't spike me.. I was amazed... Someone said if you eat carbs with protein it isn't so bad as it slows the absorption?

    Today I had vegetable quiche, one sausage, too small slices of almond and flax bread and coffee with cream.
    Snack of one boiled egg and two peanut butter cookies, espresso with cream.
    Absolutely no idea what the rest of the day will bring but I am going to the Eye Hospital to check my blurry vision issue... I am a bit nervous but I hear that the Syrian doctor is wonderful... Her name is Dr Sausan... Same as mine... :)

    I'm ok with the one slice for breakfast but my testing does tell me if I've cut it a little too thickly. The roll was one of the tiny ones about 4inches/10cms long and I only had half of one. I've found I can't eat two slices of bread/toast in one sitting but one breakfast and one lunch would be ok as my body has by then dealt with the first one. By ok, I mean a rise of less than 2 from pre to post readings. Lots of butter does seem to help greatly ;)

    I just leave out breadcrumbs but mayb a little couscous being lower GI/GL (I think - need to check) or just beaten eggs.....
    EDIT - or maybe some of the dried soya mince to help the texture - stirred in dry possibly - @Brunneria s breakfast slab does include minced beef so possibly an option

    Yes, I read that the other day too. I'm not too bad with beans, even dried peas made into pea soup

    Hi all, have been off for a while as we went on holiday for a couple of weeks. Kept low carb apart from:
    - lots of champagne at a wedding, and wedding cake. Not proud of myself.
    - one small bowl of chips the day after the wedding as I had a crashing hangover.
    - one fish-and-chips meal.
    - one dessert of churros with chocolate. Felt all weird afterwards so will not be doing that again in a hurry.
    At the end of it I was the same weight (well 100g down) so ok all things considered. It did, again, make me wonder how I ever managed to eat what I used to eat.

    Today: breakfast was 2 boiled eggs, a couple of slices salami, a bit of cheese.
    L: mince with veg, served with sautéed Savoy cabbage. Some
    Pistachios.
    D: bbq: 3 sausages, halloumi, onion, salad, avocado, Mayo.

    Mmmm, thought I'd replied - maybe it is left lurking on the phone App and didn't send. Love your Life of Brian username btw.

    cut yourself some slack about the champagne and wedding cake - weddings don't come around every day of the week - and it sounds like you paid the price :hungover::hungover::hungover: - and the dessert too taught you that your body doesn't like it so as you say, not doing that again. You kept low carb the rest of the time so well done there - can't be easy on holiday when you aren't doing your own cooking

    Don't know what halloumi is but the rest of your food was great :playful:

    Good afternoon from sunny Riyadh...Thank you for your kind thought... I have been to the consultant and she tells me there is no damage to my retinas at all! :singing::happy::joyful:
    I am typing this with my face right next to the screen - I can's see much, my pupils are huuuuuge... I look like a bush-baby! I am so relieved... I have been doing so much research and spending so much time on my laptop since I was diagnosed that I've given myself dry eye, which blurs your vision... :rolleyes:

    Still not nice but lots of relief that its nothing 'serious' apart from not being able to see too well. Those drops sting like mad when they put them in to open your eye up don't they......
