    @s.sollis I think you need to start a new thread to get support from people more experienced with your difficulties. I looked at the forums and there is one called diabetes discussions which is for support with diabetic problems. Why don't you start a new thread there, maybe you could title it support needed. Just an idea.

    It was really yummy! I used to love a kebab occasionally and really missed them but this home made version was better than shop bought. I might also try it with chicken breast.

    It'll be interesting to see what I can and can't tolerate, that is for sure. The omelette is great with cheddar, I'm personally not such a fan of other cheeses in omelettes. Those fat bombs make me think of ferrero rocher ;-) Thanks for the tip, I will check them out. I once made cashew nut paste in the food processor, guess I could do the same with other nuts, shape into balls, cover in good quality chocolate and then sprinkle with crushed nuts (sounds dodgy but you know what I mean!). I'll have a look at that site now!

    Yesterday....

    Broke my Fast at 25.25 hours with Roast Pork Belly, Cauliflower Mash, Cabbage & Sugar Snaps with loads of Gravy.

    It's weird prior to eating I had no hunger whatsoever and could have gone longer, but after eating I could have eaten a horse.

    Today so far had a flax muffin, a slice of low carb choc cake and some cheddar crisps. For dinner I'm having chicken stir fried with Madras paste and chopped chillies.

    @s.sollis it doesn't have a strong taste. When cooked it had a slight taste of celery. I used the recipe for celeriac oven chips from the bbc good food website. I'm sorry I can't do link I'm not very good at it.

    They're great aren't they. Sometimes it's the simple, everyday things that are most satisfying.
