    I can manage a slice of spelt bread without any rise - I'd be surprised if any of us manage white bread without a spike especially two slices for a butty.

    Im in Japan :)

    B: grilled salmon and poached egg, cabbage salad with mayo sesame dressing, miso soup, handful of nuts, green tea, 3 cubes of apple, strawberries, thin slices of gyudon (beef)

    L: 4 pieces of sushi and green tea

    S: acai berry bowl with blueberry and yogurt with a few slices of banana

    D: deep fried chicken with cheese stuffing, cabbage salad and miso soup, tsukemono (pickled vegetable radish and garlic)

    D2: broccoli and squid salad with pesto, Japanese style Niçoise salad, packet of nuts, small orange segments, 2 cubes of pineapple

    S: nuts (almonds, cashew and macadamia) and green tea

    They seem a lot but the servings are tiny and served in small plates. Theres a lot of variety so it doesn't get too boring and you get to eat fruit but in small quantities.

    I do eat toast for breakfast but normally just one medium thick slice of homemade (pkt with extras ;)) and lots of butter on it. Usually just under 2.00 up from pre breakfast reading. The only way you will know if you can "get away with it" is to test pre and post as no doubt you are doing anyway. Just try ONE slice with extra bacon than you would normally have on it. NO sauce cos that will skew the figures - test just bacon butty to start with and add sauce once you know what the butty does to you (if spike allows it)

    Breakfast - usual butter with a slice of toast ;)
    Dinner - a fritatta of sorts, not as good as others I've made but bs went down by 0.1 :joyful:
    Tea - fish, chips and mushy peas - regular sized this week and still left half the chips
    Snacks - 2 sugarfree digestives, think that's it - apart from a nibble at the rest of the fritatta in the pan.

    Probs have a soya latte later - bedtime-ish - still time for more snacks

    I used up the leftover barley pilaff from yesterday with some leek and courgette to make an absolutely disgusting soup which Mrs B bravely sampled but half of it went straight down the drain :***: I believe that's the first real dud I've served up in 25 years.
    The good news is that I had a full bowlful and it didn't spike me at all :woot:

    It was already over-curried and I accidentally put in three times too much turmeric and unfortunately Mrs B can't abide cream or creamy things (except ice cream, oddly). Some things you just have to admit defeat over.

    I completely agree - I have a tsp of black cherry jam on my almond bread and some kind of butter as a treat now... lush... I used to pile it on too... :)

    I haven't quite perfected my bread but I will post it later - you could carry on tweaking it of course.. It's nice toasted too and has more 'structure' than ones I've made before...
