    @PenguinMum you are being sarcastic describing raking acorns as pleasant, riiiight?? If not, PLEASE share your secret. We have a number of leaf rakes metal and plastic, and a garden rake, and the acorns bounce around giggling and ask to be picked up one by one if we please.
    @Annb what a gem of an Em!! She may well make an excellent vet!
    @squashiefolks I'm going to vote Tatume/a based on this photo (please little forum, accept my photo...). Note the immature vs the mature. Called calabacita in Mexico.

    Hi lovely people,

    This topic has been organised as a celbration & exchange in ideas on food. Specifically set up in the LC diet sub fora.

    In the spirit of good will on this thread. Let's keep mouths watering & other "subject matter" in the appropriate elsewhere...

    Kind regards.

    Hadn’t realised how late it was so posting quickly before I forget what I’ve eaten.
    Black coffee until around 1pm
    2 chicken wings and 1 leg from a roast chicken I cooked this morning to use in a recipe later in the week. Followed it with a DGF ginger cake.
    Dinner was a made up sort of fish pie - smoked haddock topped with sautéed peppers, mushrooms and onion, then cheese and double cream then sliced courgettes brushed with melted butter. Baked for around 20 mins. Very tasty.
    DGF raspberry bakewell afterwards and a bit of Montezumas 100% after that.
    @zauberflote I’m definitely a pot likker! I haven’t noticed Mars, is it quite visible at the moment? must look out for it when I take Dennis out for his last wee.

    In the process of researching whether sourdough starter can be made with flax meal, I ran across an article that had two things for me: 1: a flax bread with only (very very fine-ground) flax, baking powder, and water. 2: the fact that flax contains a carcinogen in addition to all the good stuff, and some UK authority has named 5 tbsp/day as the top limit. Also it has phyto-estrogens, which is bad in my own case because my mom had breast cancer, estrogen-receptor-positive. Now what do I do??!! I eat flax because it's VLC, packed with fiber that my body uses appropriately, and has a flavor I really enjoy. Arrgghh.
    @Annb there is a "full-on chat" thread in... somebody help me out plz? It's called What Was Your FBG (full-on chat), so chatting is in the thread title. I don't want you to disappear! I am learning much about grandmothering and enjoy your presence!!
    Bfast avocado, pecans, boiled eggs, <2 sq Lindt 90%, phytoestrogenic flax crisps with phytoestrogenic soymilk. Can't win fer losin' here with my plant foods.
    Lunch or something more peanut butter than I'd planned
    Supper yet to come, will have spinach/hm dressing and flax crisps/dilute soy. Maybe blue cheese if there's enough for two...
    @Jaylee this is awful to ask but could you re-punctuate your last sentence for me please? I am not sure if I'm supposed not to comment on how good another poster's food sounds here. ("Mouths watering & other 'subject matter'[...]elsewhere...") Also please forgive my guidance to another thread for Annb.

    Hello all,

    @Annb -- Please stay, we'd really miss you loads.

    Today ...

    Breakfast: A double decaffeinated espresso with cream and erythritol.

    Lunch: Half a DD keto roll with turkey salami and Caesar's dressing (actually meant to put mayonnaise on it, but mixed up the jars).

    Dinner: A piece of cheese to tie me over. Later lamb's lettuce with Caesar's dressing, parmesan and 150g of pan fried quail breasts. Some red wine.

    Hi there

    Just to be clear, this thread has always included plenty of chatter, friendly support and comment on the menus/meals of others as well as suggestions around appropriate - food related - kitchen gadgetry. That is all fine, where the main focus is on the food and what has been eaten. After all, reading endless posts that are essentially lists would be no fun.

    As a ‘mod’ who has been a ‘regular’ on thread for a while, I hate having to ‘step in’ here as it’s a great thread which is a personal favourite precisely because of the friendliness and exchange of ideas. It’s just a matter of balance.

    So swiftly moving on, I’m downing a morning cup of Teaolat with cream (said foodstuff about to be ditched as a trial) and a glass of iced water.

    Fridge is full of an array of possible dinners following a bumper delivery from Morrison’s. Shall it be lamb ribs, poussin, lamb shoulder...choices, choices!

    Who recommended filling red pepper halves with the tuna muffin mix, @Antje77 ? @zauberflote ? I can’t remember, but I tried it yesterday and it was an inspired adaption, thank you.

    Just popping in to say last night I had two Birds Eye veggie burgers each topped with a fried egg for supper. I know I have lost my taste quite a bit but they were so disappointing. Even if they had more seasoning it would have helped. I chose them because they were very LC compared to other brands. Just removed them from the next C&C.
    Today had my usual brekkie of slice of HiLo toast, butter and tea.
    Lunch will be a bowl of the green veggie soup still going and a chunk of cheese.
    Supper will be courgetti and a small portion of beef chilli.

    @Annb I hope so much you stick around. I always enjoy your posts and with so many health challenges you deserve the camaraderie. You always talk about introducing all kinds of different foods in your life at different times, so you get my vote!

    @Annb glad we PMd. B=Tea; 11.00 am: AM Latte; L: Bone broth (add 2 dollops, boiling water and much acv to a massive mug) and 2 slices M toast.; EM = Venison - from a haunch - and roasted veggies, gravy. I had the downhill (plenty of salad when the weather was hot) so uphill now for a few months. LC was never going to work today; colder,wet but I didn’t just shy away and fast. I found a kind of hack so we move on. Sorry about the veggie burgers @PenguinMum. Advent Calendar ordered

    Evening all.

    TMAD+ today.

    Brunch was a few individual portions of cheese, smoked salmon and cream cheese followed by some almond butter which had found its way into my desk drawer, plus a couple of pieces of Montezuma’s absolute black with orange and cocoa nibs. Also in my desk drawer - had forgotten it was there!

    Dinner was the most delicious, and enormous, lamb ribs from yesterday’s Morrison’s delivery. Rubbed with salt and lemon pepper (should have used more of that), then air fried. Really yummy!

    B : 3 egg omelette with gouda and mozzarella. Nice and stringy but so little flavour

    Skipped lunch but did have a wet walk with a friend

    D: roast duck (first I've ever cooked) with roasted butternut squash, some broccoli and a little kale. Tried cooking some extra duck skin in the airfryer to make crackling but it wouldn't quite crisp up. Still tasted good though but had to be eaten straightaway, not kept

    Welcome to the thread. I haven’t managed to get to like liver yet. Minced beef, cheese and eggs (all in one pan in my case) is always good.

    Hi @mr_cat and thank you for sharing the joy
    Today I had the usual buckets full of black coffee all morning
    Lunch 40g Camembert, 1/2 tin tuna, h/b egg, spinach leaves, olive oil and a slice of Schwarzbrot
    Dinner: 250g steak. Salad with 1/2 avocado and olive oil. Amazingly still hungry at the end - it was fillet steak so maybe not enough fat - had a small portion of lazy mousse a la @Goonergal
