    I did retest, using the other hand and it was 8. It is puzzling me. It could be something on the hand towel, I do wash my hands in the kitchen prior to testing and do cook 'normal' food for my son and friends. There is a Victoria Sandwich sitting in the fridge which I made this week. I haven't even been tempted. I am hoping it is just a blip and have to keep on track.

    Can I ask where people buy Pork Scratchings from (the Posh ones specifically). I was hungry yesterday and looked for some in the supermarket for a snack but couldn't find any!

    Hello Sable,
    Of course you can. I will post it on the 'low carb recipes' thread. A very quick and simple recipe.

    :)

    If you are anything like me, it is less about the number of carb grams, and more about how quickly they are dumped into the bloodstream.

    So if you eat 10 g of carbs in fibrous veg, you'll see much less impact than 10g in white bread.

    I use this a lot!

    B: good sausage and egg
    L: lemon and coriander bought hummus. 9 bar - the pumpkin one. Much sweeter than my usual peanut one. Had forgotten my meter, so couldn't test, but I wasn't impressed!
    D: grilled lamb steak and orange pointy pepper filled with cream cheese. With green salad. Yum.

    Out tomorrow, for lunch in a posh pub. Can't wait. Last time the meal was excellent!
