    Hiya,
    Strictly speaking not the right place to post but what the heck!! From what you've posted I would say you're doing a fantastic job. Personally I would have avoided the spuds & parsnips but such a great improvement in just a couple of weeks. Really well done.

    Thanks for all the avocado advice. It's not that I don't like them per se, but I've really gone off them by themselves, especially the texture. Since they're so good for a LCHF diet I want to persevere. I will try the mashing, lemon juice type approach and report back.

    Perhaps eating it with celery or radishes will help with the texture and give you some nice cold crunch

    Tried this yesterday (much to the worry of Mr Chook) and it was lovely. Really lovely. I just cut in to it and inserted some garlicky butter and black pepper then stirred gently before serving. So easy! I'm now wondering if it would work with celeriac? Anyone tried this?

    Glad yours was a success too, love the sound of garlic butter, I'll do that next time. Not tried doing celeriac this way, but it's worth a try. A friend is going to do her next butternut squash this way too.

    YAY! Glad you like it. You seem to eat very little! And about your turkey mayo salad, is it with lettuce or just turkey and mayo? I seem to gravitate toward turkey and mayo for lunch as well. Sometimes I put it on a piece of romaine , sometimes with guac and celery, sometimes with green beans. I think if I don't have some veggies I don't feel like I had a balanced meal but years ago all I would eat was turkey, chicken, egg or tuna slathered in mayo. Loved it. I wish I could eat as little as you/ How do you do it?

    Hi...I had shepards pie for dinner with some courgette and a bit of gravy my BC was 8.8 when i woke up, after dinner it was 6.2 was happy with that so treated myself to a couple of crabs claws :joyful: i'm slowly cutting down on carbs and try to avoid sugar when possible, only got diagnosed with type 2 2 weeks ago when my BC was 30.6 (as mentioned in early post) i know it's a long journey as i've only just started but i think i've started on the right path :) P.S forgot to mention i used mashed butternut squash instead of potatoes :angelic:

    My food still comes in around 1500 calories, so it's not that little!
    The salad comes from a a Subway in my office building. It contains lettuce, tomatoes, cucumber and green peppers as well as the turkey. Note to anyone reading ... Subway will do a bowl of salad with meat of your choice ... you don't have to buy the bread. (Also they do a nice side order of meatballs & cheese. The sauce is a bit carby but hey ho!)
