    ......That's it, I'll be making my Gala Apple steam pudding this weekend. I'm not pointing the finger at anyone, but I've been forced into it.

    1/2 cup unsweetened almond milk

    You do need to be testing at 2 hours.....that's the crucial time....and mayb ano half hour after that with new foods to check if you're back on your way down again... At half an hour you can still be on your way up but I wouldn't expect a big rise to that at 2 hrs though mayb the banana if you are sensitive to it. Just want you to be safe x

    Bear in mind the stratiacelli cake IS low carb made with almond flour... Enjoy your steamed pud, just a small portion mind ;)

    What's a Gala Apple Steamed Pudding? It doesn't sound low-carb... I know who you're blaming too - she gets away with blue murder really you know... :D

    None of the above ;). Some things still spike me terribly. I'll check the carb load of that lot...just to see if it's less than it sounds....

    @Sable_Jan
    I've noticed that I tolerate wholewheat flour in baking ("Portion control being the key") quite well lately.

    I bake bread, cakes and my favourite steam pudding with wholemeal flour and I use Splenda as a sweetener.

    1 slice of Homemade bread toasted with breakfast is fine, if I ate 1 slice later on in the day, it would definitely spike me.
