    I'm so pleased your cat has come back safe. I'm just looking through this forum for some food ideas and saw your post. My beloved Archie went out of the door last August Bank Holiday and never came back. His brother Olly died not long after pining for him. They were only 2 years old :(

    Hi,
    No, I don't have coconut oil - is it the solidified stuff that comes in a pot? I'm not sure how to get hold of grass-fed meat and dairy products in France as I don't think I've ever seen it mentioned on the packagings. I did a quick google and someone said that in the summer cows are generally fed grass and then in the winter it's other things. Maybe organic is the best bet. I do have chocolate, at the moment it's 98%. x

    Aww I'm so sorry for your loss. My cats are like my children so I know how upsetting it is when they leave us. We did have one cat though who disappeared, then turned up in the village a year later, so don't give up hope. Are you planning on getting another cat? :cat:

    B: fromage blanc with raspberries / coffee and cream
    L: vegetable soup and crustless quiche lorraine
    for this evening: roast chicken thigh, roquefort sauce, salad (actually starting to crave it now I'm eating creamier, fattier food) and probably also some cooked veg

    Instead of concentrating on my work I'm starting to have thoughts of homemade almond butter...

    You just got to do what's best for you. At the end of the day low carb isn't going to do any harm. You should test after your banana to see how your blood sugar spikes or not. Get the carbs and cals book or app, it's very easy to use and will really help make the right decision with what your eating. Hope this helps. :)
