    Eaten today

    Chocolate and nuts

    2 boiled eggs wrapped in roast beef

    Black coffee

    Mid morning meal of cafe cooked breakfast and had egg, bacon, black pudding, mushrooms

    Lemon and ginger tea

    Was at hospital for eye appointment and they have a farm shop there so bought strawberries and raspberries...ate them in the overheated waiting room, and on the way home.

    Had to pick up a parcel so went to fish and chip shop next door, and bought a piece of fish but took the batter off.

    It was a very long day, a lot of heavy motorway driving, and so I ate differently and over a longer period than I normally do.

    Water and herbal teas.

    breakfast, my usual homemade nut museli, with a splash of semi skimmed milk, 2 eggs scarmbled with butter and three fried mushrooms, 2 cups of tea, with the same milk.
    coffee with cream and a coconut rock cake, only one, 10g carb, but it was a big mistake and body rebelled against all that sugar in one go. So no more of those. Luckily had already decided they are not a good idea. cake was a reward for digging, have completed another bed in the veg patch, looking forwrd to planting it. Hoping the leeks, transplanted two days ago will stand up to the heat.
    Lunch: salad as usual, except it was scratch around in the fridge salad, no cucumber or radish, had yellow peppers; lettuce from the garden, little bit of carrot and mangetout salad left from yesterday and five baby plum tomatoes. 10 green olives, 2 slices of toast, its a new brand, must test it out, but 16g for 2 slices compares well with others i can take - in moderation. slices are small. duck and green peppercorn pate on the toast, delicious. water, tea.
    glass of sugar free squash in the afternoon, Topped the orchard, three hours on the mini-tractor, will finish tomorrow. Its getting warm, goverment health warnings about heatstroke , drinking plenty, avoid vigorous activity, stay indoors. um, not very likely, still massive amount to do in the "garden". Am very sun wary though, through decades of sun sensitive skin.
    Before dinner small glass of rose wine, again decided its not good for me, so will be finishing this up and trying not to indulge in more.
    cup of tea,
    Dinner salmon, with lemon butter and pine nuts, two small potatoes, courgettes and cabbage. Odd mixture, again bottom of the fridge job. Glass of white wine.
    tea before bed
    Shopping tomorrow, better go early - Going to check out the icecream, Saw one in supermarket only 9g per 100 ml, but was too far from home, looking for same in local store. Stock up on salad stuff as well. Maybe some strawberries? and an alternative cold drink, that forest berries stuff was foul. Hoping the leeks, transplanted two days ago will stand up to the heat.

    Hope you cope with the heat over the next few days - does it affect your bg either way or don't you know.?

    @SlimLizzy OMG - I feel exhausted just reading about your day. I hope your leeks take. Take care in that heat.

    Today.... sore throat, caught and congested nose still with me but feeling better in myself - definitely still avoiding foods with sharp edges though

    Breakfast: three scrambled eggs made with cream and butter

    Lunch: Houmous - not sure what to use as a carrier for it, maybe celery but might just use a teaspoon

    Dinner: h/m burgers with melted Gouda cheese in top and coleslaw

    Two packs of sugar free jelly made up to be eaten throughout the day to sooth my throat

    Usual black decaff coffee or water to drink

    Like for the menu although a hug is in order for the throat and nose. Not hay fever related is it?

    No, I don't suffer with that (thank goodness) except for very mild itchy eyes on a hot day when the rape is flowering. I caught this while at the doctor's last Friday. I always do catch something when i spend time in that waiting room. Next time I'll wear nitrile gloves and a face mask. :shifty:

    @ianpspurs not sure about heat affecting me, last year was not measuring. Now test intermittently. better try to find a regular routine for a few days.
    Have just done hour to finish topping the orchard, very hot work and then helped to carry inside 14 sheets of platerboard. Feeling a bit hot and bothered now, 28C here atm, and expected to rise.
    MrS had a go with the strimmer this morning, but there are still a lot of edges need cutting, they can wait until its cooler,

    YESTERDAY
    Breakfast - 1 slice bacon, 1 sausage, 2 eggs, black coffee
    Lunch - strawberries and cream (probably too many strawberries, but they didn't upset my readings). Finished the box later in the afternoon.
    Dinner - oxtail stew with plenty of veggies in it. Then I made a mistake!
    My son had bought some rose petal tea which was quite unpalatable as tea so he suggested it might flavour a cake - he doesn't eat cake, being seriously allergic to most things in life but he comes up with ideas. So I tried making it. A little extra rose water and a punnet of raspberries to add to the flavour. My usual experimental trials person is my other son, but he didn't come to the house yesterday so, I thought, I had got away with the "breakfast bread pudding" the day before ...

    I'm sure you can guess the rest.

    It tasted OK, but not sufficiently wonderful to make me bother with it again. The effect on my BS was fairly dramatic - up from 7.8 before dinner to 13.5 90 minutes post cake and rising by bed-time. Took extra insulin overnight and got it down within range by this morning.

    I do hate wasting any foodstuff but I think the rose petal tea will go out and I hope my "trials" son will come in today to take the rest of the cake away. Otherwise his hens will get it some time later.

    Very true. I was at a meeting at my GPs practice a while back (after a disastrous CQC assessment) and someone complained about that, especially when it was something obvious, and others agreed. The doctors said its something they were taught at medical school. Another person suggested they ask 'how can I help you today'.

    Because of the weather heating up I am thinking of mixing Greek yogurt with frozen berries and freezing in portions. I dont like yogurt or cream on its own but if its blitzed with red berries it could be a very different taste. Any tips?

    I was wondering that as well, but thought there was something I ought to know about but didn't. So I didn't ask. But what pic?

    Haven't been on the forum in a while but used to get lots of ideas from this thread and just wondered what the following abbreviations mean:

    CWC
    CMT
    CCB
    NE

    Thanks in anticipation.
