    Good to see you here JF. For me, wholemeal toast isn't on, but enjoy it, if it suits you. I'm jealous!

    Breakfast ideas, eggs, boiled, scrambled, fried. Anyway you like with bacon nice and crispy or fingers of cheese to Dip. Smoked haddock and spinach.
    Sausages, have to check those for carbs though.
    Any leftover veg fried up or in an omelette.
    Some people have full fat Greek yoghurt and berries.
    I make a grain free granola, recipes on internet.
    Any ideas here for you?

    Skipped breakfast and lunch again, just wasn't hungry.

    Going to make low carb toad in the hole for the 2nd time. They're in the oven right now, and this time I made sure the lard was screaming hot and sizzled when I put the batter in.

    Putting it on a lower rack to hopefully avoid any burning etc and even cooking.

    Evening all.
    Breakfast- Bacon buttie made with SLC bread - our Saturday treat after boot camp. Delicious!
    Lunch was a chunk of chorizo and a few 100% chocolate buttons on the go.
    Dinner- airfried duck breast with salad of rocket and avocado. I’ve missed the green stuff after my almost week of almost zero carb. Had this with a few of the leftover posh mushrooms fried in bacon fat left from this morning. Couple of glasses dry white. Really enjoyed this dinner. Airfried duck breast is fantastic.

    Did you save the drippings? I've always been astonished how much fat renders out of duck.

    Evening all.

    TMAD today.

    Lunch was Nando’s. Ordered click and collect while out and was pleased to see rewards can now be used for collections. Cue one free whole chicken. Arrived to find eat in was an option so sat and ate half the chicken and a portion of grilled halloumi. Had also ordered some of their nuts, which were eaten once home. Other half of the chicken in fridge for weekday lunches.

    Dinner was a few slices of salami.

    @DJC3 how long did you cook the duck breast for? Not something I usually eat, but it looks fab.

    About 20-25 mins on around 200C I don’t think my af is particularly accurate. I’ve never eaten duck much either ( apart from crispy duck from Chinese ) but the airfryer is a game changer in this case.
    Edit to add - I left uncovered in the fridge for a couple of hours for skin to dry out a bit then sprinkled s&p, no oil. Very simple and delicious.
    Edit again! To add that I pricked the skin all over before cooking.
    Last edit I promise.

    Actually it was perfect. I bought it a week ago with a reduced sticker on it as it was apparently past its best then!

    Skipped lunch.
    Mid afternoon: coffee shop cappuccino and coconut bites.
    Dinner of Chinese takeaway: crispy duck, three small pancakes, a smidge of sauce and veggies followed by SF jelly, cream and LC chocolate granola.

    Very few of us could at the start, particularly when you were being told at initial appointments to eat wholemeal bread, pasta, brown rice ......I was lucky that I had a well informed GP surgery that hands out strips and meters to T2s and actually recommends low carb eating.

    Today seemed to rush past but managed to make time to bring our tree in from garden - it’s grown about 12 inches over the year in its pot in the garden and looks lovely decorated and lit up.
    Breakfast a couple of mushrooms, one slice of bacon and egg on slice of LC toast
    Lunch one slice of Lc toast with cheese and a few walnuts
    Dinner roast chicken with a chipolata sausage, one very small roast potato and portion of sprouts with very small splash of gravy plus glass of dry white wine. Pudding DGF bakewell brownie with extra thick cream,
    cooper - youngest sons dog pictured in my avatar - is coming to stay with us in the morning, as decorating being done at son’s house. we are so so looking forward to his company he’s such a good dog very cuddly and smiley. He is also good therapy for autistic eldest son so it’s a win win.
