    Everything in moderation ;)

    I've made these really for my kids. I want them eating more healthily too. I think we should be allowed one low carb treat a day which will keep us from straying. :) :) :)

    To be fair I don't have a sweet tooth.. I can't say I brought diabetes on myself through cake eating though the mound of bread and crisps might have something to do with it.;-)
    I could do with a nice flatbread recipe as I do miss having something to dip in my curry.

    I have a wrapped cathedral city cheese portion as my low carb treat at bedtime. I agree treats are important. I just have so much weight to lose and despite it taking years to go on, I want it off ASAP. I can't help thinking that my mental health would improve if I didn't feel **** physically and I want to show my GP and DN that I'm not just another fat, lazy menopausal woman with diabetes..... Not that they've said that, but you get the picture......

  4. There's a couple of flatbread recipes on this list. I got the psyllium to try #9 healthy subway *fingers crossed*

    Weightloss - You can do it Ethyl! It is carbs that make us fat. Andy posted a video of the dishy Swedish doctor explaining it all :) I'll look for it if you want.

    Very strange that's not the recipe I see when I go to the above link. When I go here and click on coconut flour flatbread it takes me here.
    You could try that one.

  16. Seems the stuff comes as husk and husk powder. Maybe a difference so watch out for that. Amazon were going to take too long so I bought my husk powder on Ebay.

    I'll be gutted if it stinks of fish like flax seed does (to me) ! :nailbiting:

    Can't say I've noticed the fishy smell, though we did own a fishmongers so maybe I am immune to the odour.
    Btw watched that talk- interesting but where was the dishy Dr I was supposed to look out for? ;-)
     
  19. Hehe there is no accounting for taste :rolleyes:

    Maybe I am over sensitive to fish pong. The only fish we have in the house is cat food and they wolf it so quickly that it doesn't have time to smell.
