    I love anything mixed with mayo. Turkey, chicken, egg, lamb, even burgers. I like throwing mustard in too for a change of pace. I usually top celery sticks with it but I have just tossed steamed cooled green beans in and that is great too. I used to always put it on a big piece of romaine but using celery these days. Gotta mix things up and still keep them the same right?
    What do you put in your turkey salad? (besides cheese haha)

    The not being hungry didn't last long. Just had Tesco healthy living range chicken curry with chickpea and lentils rice ( haven't eaten else today so allowed myself that). Date and banana seed shot. A pear and some blueberries and a yogurt. Really enjoyed that so may try fasting more often.

    Didn't have duck salad in the end, had Thai prawn and mushroom soup: prawns, mixed mushrooms, chicken stock, fish sauce, lemon grass, kaffir lime leaves, spring onions and chilli.

    Knocked down with some fizz!

    Didn't have breakfast.

    Lunch: Some spinach, celery, cucumber, half an avocado, 3 ounces of protein (ham/cheese) and few Nairn oatcakes as knew I wouldn't be eating for a while.

    Late dinner: Some broccoli and kale, two beef burgers with mushrooms, pepper and some spice.

    Soooo

    B: coffeencream
    L: dogwalk followed by 6 inch steak and cheese subway sub on the lowest carb bread (thats 38g carbs). The intention was to watch Mr B eat a 12 inch sub while i ate the innards of mine, and toyed with a bit of crust. Have you ever had one of these? The bread is insubstantial and v absorbant. Extracting the goo and filling was difficult, and i ate more sub than intended. Which was disappointing, because while the filling was nice, the bread was really meh.
    D: beef and veg stew with some very disappointing low carb dumplings.

    Does anyone have a decent LC dumpling recipe? Cos I sure as heck don't!

    I actually buy it from Subway (there's one on the ground floor of my office building). I usually just have the normal lettuce, toms, cucumber & green peppers.

    Subway will do a salad bowl for you. I have one most days now.
