    The main thing is not eat it all as soon as it comes out of the oven!

    Welcome Craig - I'm a relative newcomer and this thread has been so comforting and inspiring for me. Through the forum I've dicovered it's possible to still enjoy food and still indulge when I want to, but by eating different things. Just takes a while to get your head round it.

    Roasted broccoli sounds lovely - do you just bung it in the oven with a bit of oil?

    Hi Phil, there could be a whole range of people on this thread with low carbing being a common denominator - T1s, T2s on various levels of medication, some on none at all.

    I'm a T2 on no medication. My daily carbs are 50 g or less.

    Tonight I had salmon with pesto sauce and some courgette, with berries and double cream.

    Aha! Then @Avocado Sevenfold is your veggie guru.

    She posts the most fabulous veggie menus, all low carb, and sometimes ( if we are lucky ) there are pictures. ;)

    Question folks:

    I love the idea of courgette pasta (strips of courgette to look like tagliatelle, I think)

    However, I am also incredibly lazy. So the idea of labouring with a veg spiraliser, and then lovingly steaming each delicate strand... plus the nighmare steamer cleanup. nope. not gonna happen.

    Would a quick microwave zap do the the trick?

  16. I would love a spiralizer, but don't have enough cupboard space. Do you have a redundant potato peeler? That would do for tagliatelle. I also got a julienne peeler from ebay for a couple of quid to make spaghetti.

    This is a lovely recipe for spaghetti. It is raw, but I prefer to flash fry it in the wok with a bit of coconut oil to heat it up. @Pipp You might like to try this too. It is very summery.

    If you are too lazy to slow roast tomatoes and make pesto, then sun dried tomatoes from a jar are good and Sacla now do a vegetarian recipe pesto sauce in a jar.

    Thank you, will adapt to leave tomatoes out. Maybe use peppers instead.
