    @Chook good luck with the bloods tomo. Your recent bg levels would have made me very happy. I have never been a “smoothie person” and the green one does sound challenging so well done on that too. I think Mr C’s suggestion sounds good with perhaps a shot of vodka ;).
    @Annb I dont think you should beat yourself up about your bg levels because you have constant pain, are on meds and make the most heroic efforts to eat carefully. Thats not to even mention how much you do to help others notwithstanding your mobility challenges so you very particularly inspire me.
    Today I am eating:
    Usual breakfast.
    Lunch: small plate lettuce, emmenthal and spoon of cheesy coleslaw.
    Supper: cheese & tomato omelette so should be within 20g carbs today.

    Good evening. Today's food: B was bulletproof tea; more tea later in the morning; L= a mongrel latte (230 mls almond milk, 20 mls lacto free , 30 mls dbl cream); Eve= Chicken and avocado salad with chia seeds and flaxseeds. @Chook salad looks very much like your smoothie - spinach, rocket, celery, cucumber (no peel) plenty ACV (+ EVOO and dijon) - I wouldn't add the avocado, scallions or radish EVO & dijon. With basil should be fine but unlikely to aid transit much without the seeds. May have some chocolate soon . 1 row of Green and Blacks velvet edition sea salt (takes longer to type than eat).

    @Chook good luck with those bloods crossing fingers and toes for you.
    Couldn’t do the smoothie or blended veg mix never liked them - I can’t bear the texture much prefer range of tastes and textures in a meal!
    Breakfast kipper ( first for years!) delicious had with butter and half a chaffle will have again but must say that it’s a very smelly fish and the bin had to be emptied straight away!
    Lunch celery sticks and cheese with some walnuts. A few squares of 100% montezumas almond choc with coffee
    Dinner frittata with mushrooms, pancetta and cheese served with salad - mix of avocado, walnuts, celery and lettuce with lemon Mayo. Pudding lc lemon mousse and yoghurt.
    Lots of walks today in the cold crisp weather - very enjoyable but felt much hungrier than usual.

    Indeed I find all fish smelly, I used to eat a lot of sardines and tuna, and had to empty the bin right away. So glad I don't eat fish anymore, the smell is the worst part.

    Ooh, I love kippers. You reminded me I have some of the delicious M&S Arbroath ones in the freezer.

    Mmm m and s kippers sound good. These were Waitrose and really good value compared to other fish. Will deal with the smell - worth it for the flavour I love fish.

    Evenin’ All

    B: bone broth and a small lc hot choc. Am finding this is a superb breakfast. BB first, with collagen and a little Bovril, then 150mls of hot chocolate made with real chocolate, hot water, double cream and erythritol. Astonishingly fortifying.
    L: prawns in brinjal pickle cream
    D: carni pizza (homemade using a dietdoc recipe)

    definitely an eating day! And delicious from start to finish.

    If your BG is this good , this means that you are producing a good amount of insulin, in my lay opinion . So maybe getting a second Endocrinologist opinion would help to put your mind at ease ?

    At any case , I wish you all the best with your test results and cross my fingers !

    Just had my most delicious meal, during my journey.

    2 eggs, a little bit of onion, a finely chopped single slice of pickled jalapeno, a chunk of cheese, cherry tomatoes, salt and pepper and a small piece of chicken finely chopped.

    Was supposed to be an omelette, but ended up as a scrambled omelette.

    Very, very tasty

    Had a pint of water already, so another coffee with a drop of f f milf, will do the job, until I go for a walk. The sun is shining and there is frost on the ground. Vitamin d boost, as I have a deficiency. Reminded me to take my multi vit.

    Happy Tuesday

    Monday - bed 5 FBG 4.9. Week 3 of the latest DD plan underway. This week there is no breakfast until Saturday and a lot of avocado by the look of it. They do have lunch and dinner every day but for the most part lunch looks light enough not to interfere with dinner.
    B. Just TAG.
    L. a light Italian plate - prosciutto, mozzarella, tomato and olives. I added half a small avocado.
    D. Was supposed to be LC chicken nuggets but, since I still had stroganoff, it be came stroganoff and cauliflower rice.

    I've lost another 2lbs as well so, 5lbs in the first 2 weeks. It's more than I was expecting since I've been keto for a long, long time. I guess getting back to my classes and cutting out most of my nibbles helps (nuts, square of dark chocolate, berries etc all on the back burner for now). I also think the way they are mixing up the food consumption schedule helps. Must be confusing the body.

    I have a set of Sainsbury's Collection pots which I've had for 20 year! Not a scratch on them. I think they just call them hard anodised now. The 2 woks are the same make. Not surprisingly, I also have a set of Professional pots and pans that I bought in Cheshire Oaks shopping outlet on the way back from work somewhere south on the M6. I've had them ages too since it's 13 years since I stopped working. I've tried other odd ones but they never do what it says on the tin! I've held onto one Le Creuset round casserole dish. I used to have a rectangular one but I managed to crack it. Like @PenguinMum it's frying pans that need replacing although this Salter one is hikding up well so far.
