    Today I have eaten bacon, egg, black pudding, beans, 1 small slice wholemeal x 2. That's just what I felt like today. I had one lot for breakfast and a second lot for dinner. :D

    For supper I had 2 glasses of Rose wine, a handful of peanuts and 2 Hovis digestive biscuits, and I've had about 3 cups of tea today and one coffee, all with cream.

    I've done two loads of washing, bagged some clothes for charity, vacuumed the bungalow, washed my floors, done a load of paperwork, rearranged my furniture, damp dusted everywhere and I feel very, very pleased with myself. Next Saturday I'll wash all my doors down, was going to do it today but thought "Nope, pace yourself Grace, save it for next weekend."

    Tomorrow is walk in the park day if the weather's dry. :D

    OK it's 7am and I'm wide awake. What time d'you want that fry up?

    Oh and I had a cheese sandwich about half an hour before bedtime. Don't normally have that but wine has the effect of making me hungry. I knew there was another reason I'd stopped drinking years ago, but couldn't remember. I've been looking for a nice wine that I can drink that won't give me a thick head for a week, won't make me forget who I am for a week, won't make my tummy rumble for a week and won't cause me to have to drink three gallons of water for a week. Have tried diluting it with lots of diet lemo or tonic water, that seems to make the effects worse.

    Shame, cos I do get a good night's sleep after a glass of wine. In fact one evening last week I had a whole evening's sleep and then a whole night's sleep with just one glass of wine! :roll: Could you imagine me on a night out?

    I'm like Doc Martin was in the prog last night. He fell asleep on the table with his bum in the air and ended up asleep on the floor with the dog! That's me + alcohol too. :roll:

    Quite easy and fun to make your own breadsticks with brown rice flour or soya flour.
    Experimenting with soya flour and stevia to see if i can get a perfick pancake..

    Oops, pressed send before I'd finished.

    3g net carbs. Sausages were chipolatas from Costco, 1.5g for five. Hot chocolate was a mug of unsweetened soya milk (0 net carbs) with 20g cocoa powder (2g carbs - NB this is pure unsweetened cocoa powder, not instant hot chocolate) and da Vinci white chocolate syrup and chocolate syrup. It does need quite a lot of syrup because soya milk has a slightly odd taste otherwise. I also put in a scoop of chocolate protein powder but this doesn't really add much to the flavour. Heat in microwave for 2 mins.

    The pancake (well, it's a sort of risen pancake, bit hard to describe lol) was a recipe from here

    1 beaten egg
    1 tablespoon of melted butter
    2 tablespoons flax seed
    1/2 teaspoon baking powder
    Bit of sweetener (I used da Vinci butterscotch syrup, about a teaspoon full)
    Cinnamon/nutmeg if you fancy it

    Put in a microwave container that is about the size that you want the pancake to be (I use a little microwave saucepan that we cook peas in) and mix all ingredients very well. cook for 2 mins until dry on top.

    So today (first real full food day for nearly two weeks...whoohooo) I have had

    Breakfast: two leek and pork sausages with cheese coleslaw on the side and some sugar free jelly
    Lunch: one sausage and more coleslaw (the combination was just so lovely I had to have it again) and a piece of Lindt 70% dark chocolate, peppermint tea
    Dinner: 1/4 of the Mousakka I cooked and more peppermint tea.

    Oh it's so good to be eating real food that's staying put again! LOL! :lol:

    This morning I had a Brie and ham omelette, served with coleslaw on the side, it was absolutely delicious and I have the happiest tummy on the planet!

    I finished it off under the grill so the brie all went bubbly. All this for just 8 1/2 carbs! Yum!

    This is what I had for tea last night, its called the "Bruklay burger challenge" its one foot tall and officially Scotland's biggest burger. I got to the last level, not bad considering I'm only wee. And the best attempt by a type 1 for sure. You get 40mins to finish it and its free if you can do it. Needless to say my sugars are a bit haywire today!!!!
    Oh I forgot to mention, it comes with fries and side salad!!!

    Jesus, only in Scotland eh?!

    Had this porridge for brekkie, tweaked recipe from The Low Carb Gourmet by Karen Barnaby:

    25g ground flax seed
    20g wheat bran
    20g soya mince (holland and barret sell it)
    2 tbsp chocolate flavour whey protein
    sweetener to taste
    160ml hot water (for desired consistency)

    Mix dry ingredients, mix water, perhaps a spot of milk. Microwave if too cold. Gonna be a staple!
