    Yesterday (awful food day!)

    B: minted minced lamb and coffeencream
    L: hummus and beef broth
    S: 2 burgers (meat only) due to another evening of weird schedules
    D: chicken livers, courgette and red pepper with horseradish and a coyo

    Pretty low carb, but dreadful for veg content. and no smoothie! I made it. I took it to work, and then the office was so frigid that I couldn't face the coldness of it, and it sat in its flask all day and then moved back to the fridge at home - where it is even now.

    We haven't had much snow, but my goodness, it has made me want WARM food and drink, not icy cold!

    Am with you on the warm food front Brunneria! This morning I warmed some blackberries in melted coconut oil and whizzed into some yoghurt, had with hot water and lemon. I've got brocc and stilton soup for lunch and pork steaks with cauli cheese for tea. Nothing like cauli cheese for comfort food:happy:

    Does depend how good I have been but also that I went back into the "normal" range from prediabetic HbA1c in January this year has helped a lot......:) - blood test last year caught my blood sugars on the up before they did too much of a hatchet job on my body ;)

    oooh, yes, most definitely warm food on days like this. Got some sausages in the slow cooker with a cider apple cook in sauce - sauce is sweet and carby so won't be having more than what is clinging to the sausages when I take them out. Just wanted to use the jar up - fed up of seeing it sat there and didn't want to waste it.....

    Breakfast boiled egg spelt toast
    Lunch so cold as I walked into town just as the blizzard started so bought small pot chicken and veg soup from deli to have with the ham salad I'd packed
    Dinner fish done in foil with lemon juice and butter, broccoli, green beans, pickled onions and a couple of skin on potato wedges off mr E's plate.
    Snack soy latte and some dark chocolate

    Another lazy day for me, waiting for the snow to start :)
    So far I've just had 3 cups of coffee with cream and brunch of a slice of ham, some German smoked cheese, and baby plum toms with a drizzle of olive oil and balsamic vinegar

    I'm still in Riyadh so still eating boiled eggs, almond bread, grilled chicken and omelettes... so bored with it all I could spit feathers... :arghh: We are driving back to Bahrain at 4am tomorrow as my husband left the Jeep here on his last trip - can't wait even though it's 4 hours of mostly desert... I will order 4 espressos and pop them in my flask cup with coconut oil and a little cream to sustain me on the way home... breakfast will occur when we get back... the cats will pretend they don't know us for the first 20 minutes of course...:cat::cat::cat::cat: it's the way of cats.. :) What a long four days this has been...

    Depending on net carb content, you could always add a bit of cream to the sauce to fatten it up a bit! It would also slow down the sugar release a bit.

    Mmmm sausages - enjoy!

    My tea has changed, am now having a big n tasty roast chicken with cauli cheese - reduced to £3.00 on my way home from ASDA

    B: scrambled eggs, avocado & cheese
    Mrs DeeJayR's birthday today, so I let her take me out to lunch.
    L: 3-egg omelette with ham, cheese, tomato & watercress, no dressing, no fries. Pudding: 2 raspberries & 2 blueberries (from the edge of her plate of chocolate brownies, ice cream & chocolate sauce)
    She drank wine, I drove home through a small blizzard
    D: mussels in wine & cream sauce with steamed kale, celeriac, pak choi (never had it before), mangetout and other greenery foraged from the Tesco remainders bin. Good value I think
    Today I have eaten 5 eggs. :chicken::chicken::chicken::chicken::chicken: Cluck.
