  2. You're all off your heads LOL :hilarious:

    I have just been off looking for a low carb pizza recipe and found an interesting one. Will take one for the team by making it, scoffing it and reporting back.

  3. Today

    Breakfast: cheesy omelette

    Lunch: two blueberry muffins. The first one was horrible so ate the second to be sure. Too eggy.

    Dinner: leftover chickpea curry and coconut lime cauliflower "rice".

    Some chocolate later probably.

    Hmm - blueberry muffins :) It's shopping day on Thursday, I know what's going on my shopping list. DS is on summer holiday so every time I walk in the door I'm greeted with "muuum, I'm hungry!" Time to introduce him to my lo-carb recipe book :)

    sort of . She was checking my errant BP and then said she might as well do my review then if that was ok. I have lost loads of weight ( I refuse yo be told how much!) my feet are fine and get blood result back next week. BP still borderline but that isn't her call so speaking to GP next week and monitoring at home. If my blood sugar results are ok, she says I don't need t go back for six months!!!

    I did want to laugh though at one point as she had a new health care assistant in with her , an Eastern European lad who was very sweet and after measuring my waist and weight asked if he should do my height again. If only losing weight and having diabetes could make you grow taller.

    I have been using a julienne peeler for a while and it works great.
    It is very sharp though and I feel I may injure my self with my clumsy hands.
    (still don't know what is causing that but going to docs tomorrow)
    I got THIS one.

    I've bought a julienne peeler but haven't tried it out yet. Given I have ended up at A and E opening a tin, I may let someone else be the responsible adult

    The spiraliser does not give quite as even results as the peeler. most of it is great but bulges are cut off in little bits. A thin courgette was just some bits. A thick straight one is best.
