    B - McDonalds sausage & egg muffin without muffin
    L - Sausage roll (got caught out and limited options)
    D - Was going to be fish but it was off so more sausages with a fried egg

    So sausage for all 3 meals... not according to the plan.
    The sausage roll gave me a nice big BG spike. More proof, as if it were needed, that I AM diabetic and that my BG is under control only through LCHF.

    Another day off work, so:

    B: Coffee with cream and sugar free gingerbread syrup (not as nice as the hazelnut)
    L: Hot choc made with raw cocoa powder and double cream - may put in a little bit of hazelnut sugar free syrup.
    D: Spice crusted then roasted shoulder of lamb served with spinach (cooked with chilli oil, garlic, ginger, whole cumin seeds and turmeric) and possibly cauli rice. If I can be bothered. Asda didn't deliver my already prepared cauli rice :( so its question of whether I can be bothered to make my own. Might think of something else.

    As usual on the day after a fast I am just not at all hungry and eating seems a bit of a chore (as does preparing it).

    Just a thought.... I'm not off sick or anything - I just finished a run of 9 shifts, 2 days off then start a run of 7.

    Have you got a recipe for this? Is it a good substitute for bread, i.e. can you make sandwiches out of it?!

    :) @Mongolia . The cake was absolutely delicious! I didn't use quite as much Splenda and I didn't add the lemon zest. I will certainly make it again. I'm hoping to try blueberry muffins at the weekend

    @Mongolia this is not my usual way of eating.. I don't eat (sometimes ) at work when stuck in meetings etc but I do love my food..

    When at home, I snack nonstop .... that, unfortunately is my downfall.....

    I suppose you could make sandwiches with it. I haven't done that myself. I tend to use it with soup, pate, or with a fried egg on top
