    Breakfast - protein peanut & chocolate bar and a cup of tea
    Lunch - pork chop, cauliflower, broccoli, red cabbage, 1 small roast potato, a Yorkshire pudding and a drizzle of gravy
    Dinner - only got home an hour ago and feels way too late to cook and eat properly so just had a couple chunks of extra mature cheese and 2 squares of green & blacks mint chocolate

    Do you ever have one of those lightbulb moments, but not in a good way? That'll be me, right now.

    Monday is usually one of my cooking days, as the culinary genius who is MrB plays golf during the day. Today's offering will be: https://www.wholesomeyum.com/recipes/low-carb-chili-in-crock-pot-or-instant-pot-paleo-gluten-free/

    We've had this several times before and it really is the easiest of recipes, and of course, I love to be able to chuck everything into the cauldron and let it do it's own thing for a while.

    Right now we're being a it mindful of creating a bit of space in the freezers to allow for last minute prep and of course the ubiquitous leftovers, so I'm making half a batch. The lightbulb moment? Half of the eat, but all of the spices.

    Oooops. It could end up being a bit perky! Thankfully, we have both sour cream and yoghurt in the fridge should drastic action be required.

    Honestly, it a great recipe. I've only made it in the pressure cooker, but I am confident it'd be just as good on the slow cooker.

    Hello everyone, hope you’re all having a healthy day.
    Happy to start the day with FBG under 6!

    Just had brunch of pate, cheeses, cucumber, celery, ham and mayo...

    Having a hungry day today, must be the cold weather!

    I've just tested the chilli. Oooooh. It's perky!

    I've added a dollop of sour cream and a dollop of yoghurt in, just to smooth out the razor blade feel of it.

    @maglil55 I didn't realise you were in a crash, having joined the site only recently. I'm so sorry you have another thing to contend with, and can honestly say that I know how it feels. You sound like you are managing it brilliantly although we both know chronic pain - especially that of the nerves - is very hard to treat with painkillers that work to a maximum of 50% at most. I am fortunate that about three years ago out of the blue my condition started to improve. I was taking 1800mg of the anti epileptic drug Gabapentin a day, I now take 300mg at night only. This improvement began as suddenly as the onset all those years ago and the Doctor is baffled! I read about nerve re-generation on google, something that was not thought to be possible once nerves were damaged. But wasn't it once though that once you had diabetes it couldn't be reversed;)! I tell you this as you never know what will happen in the future, although I don't know the prognosis for your neuropathy.
    The neuropathy still keeps me awake at night (but not for eight hours as it used to) and I actually look quite well these days after 17 years of sleepwalking through life!
    Oh, the irony of developing diabetes because of neuropathy!!!!

    Breakfast-Hi-lo toast and butter
    Lunch - Bresaola, olives, tomatoes and cucumber. Strawberries, blueberries and extra rich double cream and one spoonful of h/m chocolate granola.
    Dinner - Slice of deli turkey, sprouts, carrots, broccoli, cauliflower cheese (Aldi frozen aisle and surprisingly good), gravy. Aldi Mosser Roth 85% chocolate.
    Snacks - nuts

    Trip to Aldi this morning (heaving already) for the last of the Christmas shop - except fresh. Bought a small Christmas cake, mince pies and some crackers for the carbivores, Hickory smoked nut selection for me:angelic: (2.6g carbs per 100g) instead of the usual crisps in bowls. Some really nice food in there (as usual).


    Happy Monday:)

    Evening all
    Hope you still have some tastebuds left @DCUKMod after your extrachillified chilli.
    B: scrambled eggs and smoked salmon
    Spent most of the day Christmas shopping in Truro - found the new Hotel Chocolate shop and bought the nutty yule log. I dont think there will be 14 servings either, but it looks fabulous.
    No lunch but didn’t miss it.
    D: salmon fillet coated in sesame seeds fried in butter with roast sprouts and broccoli also the reclusive Aldi halloumi chips. Won’t bother with these again 9.3g carbs per 100g a single serving would be 5-6g but home made are nicer and fewer carbs so I’ll stick to them in future.
    Lazy mousse to follow.

    Not been very hungry today which has led to
    1 soya milk cappuccino
    1 cappucino made with Alpro coconut milk - wont be having that again - it sent my sugars up by 4mmol despite allegedly only having 3g carbs
    Hebba pap porridge with soya cream
    Dairy free chocolate chia seed pudding with flaked almonds
    1 slice carbzone bread with Loch Fyne beetroot infused smoked salmon

    Edited to add
    833 cals, 26g carbs, 31g fibre

    Lunch : Mocha coffee - Rowntrees cocoa 2 tsps, almond milk and cream
    Afternoon: Tea with almond milk (1.5 pint mug); 5 x Dr Almond vanilla crescents; despite thermostat showing 24C and extra thick clothing my core was very,very cold so ate and had warm drink; still hungry so ate ½ tin chopped pork; exercise bike
    Evening meal: Roast turkey leg; Celeriac and swede from a time long ago cooked in oven; 2 roasted portobello mushrooms
    Just trying to make LC palatable to myself - goodness knows if that is an OK menu but nothing in there worried me.

    hi All,

    Yesterday was:
    L: prawns in curried cream cheese with a teasp of not-v-sweet mango chutney
    S: goatsmilk yog with cream and a blob of peanut butter
    D: Mr B fancied a Chinese Takeaway. So did I! The menu isn’t particularly LC friendly (understatement), but I eventually chose their roast pork omelette. Goodness it was nice. And huge. Fed me and two ecstatic dogs (small dogs) with some left over.

    I have magnanimously pointed out to Mr B that Chinese Takeaways are back on the menu. :couchpotato:

    Today:
    L: the rest of the curried prawns
    D: will be home made lamb burgers (lots of) from the freezer, with minted garlic goatsmilk greek yog.

    I’m ravenous, so off to start cooking.

    Forgive me if I have asked this before, Ian, but, if you are regularly cold, when it doesn't make sense, have you had your thyroid checked? That's a very, very common symptom, but often dismissed.

    We still have tastebuds, thankfully. With great dollops of sour cream and yoghurt added it was also very rich indeed. There's loads left, so I'm sort of hoping the "maturing" process doesn't make it much hotter.

    You could always do a batch of just mince, and then dilute the spice by mixing the two batches...

    (Though it sounds delicious, in a very intense way)

    We're sort of trying to eat down the freezers a bit to allow a defrost at some stage, and make room for the inevitable festive leftovers.

    It's such a quick and easy recipe, it takes no time to knock a batch up. Very freezer and store cupboard friendly.
