Making sure I have my app 60 gram of protein, keeping carbs under 10 gram per day and fat until full. Yes I know I'm a bit hardcore LCHF, but doing great.
Today dinner will be bone broth, then my special prawn dish with sliced garlic and chopped chilies all fried in butter, some cheese for dessert and trying out my new coffee gelatin specials.

Needed to get curry cravings out of my system for a while and also wanted to test barley as a rice substitute, so ....
B: Scrambled egg, fried bacon & tomato
L: Home-made veg soup
D: Skin-on chicken curry, barley pilaff and kale aloo (sort of). 5.5 before, 7.2 after, but I had quite a lot of barley. I think it'll be ok in moderation, interspersed with cauli.

Intrigued by the thread about "Kefir" in the soapbox forum as I have never heard about it before. http://www.diabetes.co.uk/forum/threads/kefir.1285/
Seems like worth trying. Tesco have the following online. http://www.tesco.com/groceries/product/details/?id=278297723
4.8g of carb/100g
Benefits of Kefir at: http://www.huffingtonpost.ca/2013/09/12/kefir-benefits_n_3914818.html
Anyone tried it?
How could you not share it with us so unfair.
Bacon poached egg spelt toast
Tuna crunch and pate salad
Soy latte 1/2 moser Roth bar 85% dark choc
Steak and mushrooms salad 8 fat chips
Handful peanuts and 1/2 0z cheese
Cauliflower Pizza. Awesome
breakfast - slice of bread and butter
Dinner lemon & coriander couscous with big piece of baked smoked haddock
Tea stew and dumplings (out at friends) but tried to put as little potato on plate as poss and just had one small, but very tasty dumpling
Supper - (know I perhaps shouldn't have but I'd gone shopping on way home, had to put it away along with all dog food then let doggies out for weewees by which time I was starving) small can of tuna in oil mixed with leftover couscous from dinnertime
Don't think I snacked today
Bedtime soya latte - homemade
I can see cheese, mushrooms and either red pepper or tomato but where's the cauliflower?
I have eaten well today just starting again on low carb about 60g. I had my tea at 6.30pm birds eye chicken grill 5g carb cauliflower and mushroom. But later on i was hungry but i thought i could go to bed and try and forget it. How wrong i was. Its kept me awake until now, when i gave in and had some cheese and peanut butter. Better than my usual toast and butter.
Think i will have a small snack before bed tomorrow.
The cauliflower was in the 'pizza' base. http://www.theluckypennyblog.com/2013/02/the-best-cauliflower-crust-pizza.html. It was topped with home made tomato sauce, mozzarella, Parmesan, prosciutto, salami, red onion, red pepper and mushroom. Leftovers for breakfast. It was my first attempt at a cauliflower pizza, fiddly but worth it.
That cauliflower crust recipe looks amazing!
B: 2 boiled eggs, coffee with cream.
L: was out shopping, had a lovely chicken salad that included about half a cup of butternut squash. Aussie shopping centres are so much better than the UK in terms of food courts.
Snack: almonds and a few cashews, piece of cheese.
D: 3 sausages, Savoy cabbage sautéed in butter and sesame oil, halloumi, mushrooms, onion, brocolli. Followed by 2 squares of 85% Lindt.
Breakfast bacon, boiled egg spelt toast
Lunch cheese and chorizo frittata with salad and coleslaw from deli
Snack soy latte probably
Dinner out at course so it'll be a lamb and spinach ready curry with onion bajhia salad and 1/2 poppadum eaten far too late
Hello All Could I ask do any of you eat bread as I have stopped eating bread and pastry etc all things with flour But I do the norm of bacon, egg, mushroom but sometime I would just like a bacon butty (yummy) it just has to be white bread LOL
I have switched to the Livlife bread whiich is 3.8g of carb per slice. This is much better than the usual 15g per slice of typical bread. It is smaller in size but much tastier than normal bread.
