    B - Bacon & Coffee with cheese
    L - Turkey salad with mayo & cheese
    D - Roast belly pork.
    S - a naughty pint of beer.

    The only problem I have with roast belly pork is this peculiar notion of having to share the crackling. It's all mine, Dammit !

    It's harder to stick to LCHF whilst at my brother's house, woke up with a FGL of 7.9 (eek!) because I had to eat something unsuitable last night to bring my blood sugar up to a level that was safe to sleep at but I'm going to go purchase some more appropriate snacks today.

    B flat white made with milk (tsk tsk I know)
    S 2 sq 90% dark chocolate
    L shakshuka (basically poached eggs in a spiced tomato, onion and capsicum sauce)
    S pistachios
    D ? we're going out so this may be fun haha

    I like shakshuka too. I don't have it too often, though. Actually, I might do it this evening.

    Update to my food yesterday... on the way home from an errand I got some chicken mini-fillets from a KFC drive-through.
