    Tested bs levels before going to bed fearing the worst. However got a reading of 5.0. Maybe this should be my new diet! Reading this morning was 5.5, also fine.:)

    B - a smoothie of blueberries, avocado and almond milk. Bloody horrible. I'll try again today and vary the quantities but I'm not hopeful.
    L - turkey salad
    No dinner
    S - coffee & cream, babybels, mini-salamis, merlot

    Sorry, don't know any special recipes, I just love it mashed with lots of butter and pepper. Did you know you can cook it whole in the microwave? No need to peel or prick it?

    Swede has similar carb content to carrots, and about 1/2 as much as parsnip.

    You could chop a swede into bits and then roast with olive oil.

    It takes about 20 minutes on "high", mines 700w microwave. Take out of oven with a cloth, lay on its side, the knife just slides through it - scoop flesh out with large spoon. When it's prepared the other way, quite a lot of the skin is cut away & always hard to peel anyway. The microwave way there's hardly any waste.
