    Breakfast, fried egg x 1, mushrooms and cherry toms
    Lunch, burger and salad
    Dinner, pork, cauli, broccoli, runner beans ( same as yesterday)
    Snack 2 sq 85% choc

    And I tried making the oopsie bread and almond bread - such a wonderful granddaughter I am, I made this for my nan as she has had a high hba1c reading and can't have her operation until she's sorted. Bless her she thinks that giving up sugar in her tea is enough (89yrs old, diagnosed 2 yrs ago). So I sampled a bit of each, and the verdict is that we both prefer the almond, but the oopsie will do! Thank you to this site for the recipes.

    Susikav I have a device called the Betty bossi veg twister and it has 2 settings one of which is spaghetti and one which is more like tagliatelle.

    Dinner went slightly off-piste as I had a slice of garlic cheese pizza bread. Kept on track for the rest of it - tricolore salad to start, then chicken breast in a creamy sauce with mushrooms, asparagus, sundried tomatoes, and a few green beans.

    Not sure I wrote this out correctly Susikav, it seems I hinted it was good for LC but I meant I didn't know, just found a recipe on realfoodnetwork and looks good (to me it does anyway)

    Yesterday was to have a fitting for mask she needs to wear, some thing that fits over your head and down to middle of chest, we go again on 22nd not sure what for, planning & check mask and talk again maybe, treatment starts on May 5th for six weeks.
    A bit annoyed as have been told all along you need to start the treatment at six weeks after op, yet this will now be twelve weeks but I guess budget, schedules and other reasons come into play, and I assume they know best, just a bit peeved at being told one thing but in reality it's twice as long.
    At least we have had two "dummy" runs in car using different routes to see what's best, 3/4 hour going, 30 mins return, so quite easy just that's it's at 11:50 which kind of ruins my work day, but tough @&@!

    Not posted last few days as was my birthday on Friday and have eaten out last two nights! Glad to be back to roast chicken & salad tonight :)

    so far
    Breakfast: Up really late so had that almond cake.... thought it was supposed to be super great for the numbers but I still went up from 5.1 to 6.3 - rather surprised me....though could also be that a liver dump was underway....
    Dinner: Same as last nights tea....
    No snacks.... yet.... ;) and will watch myself with the cake though there is only one slice left.... daughter enjoyed it too when she popped in for dinner
    Not christened my tea yet...... had thought of roast chicken but its still in the freezer

    B: bacon and egg, small latte
    L: family meal at an all-you-can-eat-chinese-buffet :wideyed: Not a successful meal. They had carrots in batter!!!:stop: I stuck to shredded pork, ribs, chickens bits, salad - basically 95% protein, 5% gloopy gummy shiny sauces. And 5 prawn crackers. There's a limit to what you can actually avoid. BG has been acceptable, so I seem to have got away with it. Drank fizzy water. No one else even noticed that my plate was solid meat.
    D: probably a huge salad. Definitely don't need any meat or fish! Might excavate some cauli cheese though. Need veg to balance that lunch!

    Late breakfast due to night shift, poached eggs on spinach. Just made a veg curry using cauliflower, courgettes, brussel sprouts and spinach. I keep organic lemons frozen and will grate some into the curry when I reheat it. I will likely make some soup for my son and may have a bowl for supper, if I stay up that late!
    Normality resumes weekdays

    Greek Yoghurt with mixed ground nuts.
    Tea with cream and 3 Ginger Nut biscuits (homemade).

    Roast chicken
    Coleslaw
    Brussels Sprouts

    2 sqs dark chocolate
    2 Ginger Nut biscuits
    50g Apple*
    Cashel Blue cheese


    * I am going to have to omit apple from my diet altogether as even this tiny amount of apple raises my bg to over 8. Cheese and apple has been a favourite night time snack for years so I will have to limit my fruit intake to berries only.

    celery is nice with cheese and, if you can do a few red grapes, they are nice too....

    How frustrating for you both... so disappointing when you've geared yourself up to have the treatment and then to have to wait again... and worrying, too of course.... lots of luck to you.... I'm glad you enjoyed your birthday... :)

    Celeriac spaghetti does sound good, especially teamed with pesto, I thing that is a winning combination. The celeriac will add a bit of bulk/substance to counteract the absence of potatoes or broad beans. AD, I loved any kind of pasta Genovese. I may buy one of those sprializer thingies and experiment.
