    Love panna cotta orange juice does not agree with me, but apricot is nice,
     
  2. Another one here with a history of horrific lady problems (now non-existent cycle due to the progesterone pills). Interesting that there are so many of us...maybe when one hormone is out of whack, such as insulin, they all go out of whack. Dunno. Hope we haven't put Spiker off his dinner!

    Talking of which, mine needs eating. Laters x

    Mine have been out of whack since day 1 sadly!
    I'm sure Spiker will manage his 94 sausages and a tonne of coleslaw still ;-)

    breakfast up very late so waited and had brunch of quorn sausages, bacon, mushrooms, poached egg
    late afternoon slice ham, mini cheddar cheese, strawbs, sprinkle flaxseed, creme fraiche
    supper chicken and chorizo, green beans, broccoli ( going to be on menu a bit as I mus have had a chorizo buying frenzy looking in fridge)

    yes, way too hot for a stew but I'd made it so ate it. Hoping it cools down before bed or I might as well just put three nighties in wash now.

    Have you ever tried acupuncture for your periods? I used to have excrutiating periods my whole life but after two sessions I've been pain free. It's amazing!

    Honestly I haven't tried this, I rather skip the base and make a meatza with minced meat base and then lovely filling and top with multitudes of cheese.
    Try this one
    Pizza Base
    4 eggs
    100 ml ground almond
    100 ml coconut flour
    4 teaspoons psyllium husk (fibre husk)
    oregano

    Toppings
    Fresh mozarella
    Red peppers
    Tomato paste
    Grated cheese
    Salt, pepper, oregano
    Mix all the ingredients of the pizza base together. Put the mix on an oven tray and make a nice and even thin base.

    Let the base cook in the oven for around 7 minutes at 200 C. Take it out of the oven and spread the tomato paste evenly over it. Add the toppings and the grated cheese on top together with salt, pepper and oregano. Bake in the oven for 10 – 15 minutes.

    Blimey, I thought I'd had a bad day! I saw a 9 for the first time in a while - 9.7 in fact, and am disgusted with myself.

    Weirdy, did you keep testing after the pizza? It takes me about 3-4 hours to reach my pizza peak - although it isn't a sharp one, more of a Snowdon than a Matterhorn.

    I bloody hope it won't peak in 3-4 hrs, although I've just done 100 sit ups and 10 press ups hoping that will burn some, and I eat far too late, usually 8-8:30, just don't feel hungry till late.

    Will test again in 30 mins for the post 3 hour, and fingers crossed

    I also had a very bad evening yesterday! Was good all day with allbran for brekkie and omelette for lunch......then went out and drank lots of cider (which I haven't touched since diagnosis!) A jager bomb ( can't quite believe I did that! How much sugar is in energy drinks, I probably don't want to know) and finished off with a chinese! Gonna try and be really really good today :shy:
