    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.

    B: breakfast slab (it's the best yet!) and coffeencream
    L: choc 9bar and Sukrin bread, cheese and mayo sarnie
    D: chicken tikka masala (homemade with chia seeds and masses of veg)

    May have a hot choc later :happy:

    Edited to add:

    I tested 2 hrs after curry and got 5.8 (repeated test, in shock, and got 5.3!)
    Yay!!! Chia seeds like me!!!

    So I'm celebrating with rhubarbncream :D:D:D

    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.

    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.

    That cauliflower crust recipe looks amazing!

    Me today:
    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.

    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.

    http://www.livlifefoods.co.uk/ You can buy it at Waitrose
