    -Black coffee, Low carb high protein yogurt and almonds for breakfast,
    - Cheese and lettuce sandwich made with an untoasted Lizza low carb toastie (okay, so it was a bit like eating soft MDF but I was driving).
    - decaf coffee with milk.
    Completely lost my appetite since starting on Gabapentin. It’s a bit strange but if it stops the pain I don’t care if I turn green and grow roots!!

    Good evening all. Nearly forgot to post but here goes:
    Lots of black coffee am
    Lunch: asparagus and broccoli frittata with 1/2 avocado and a blob of h/m chilli mayo, then a small bit of blue cheese to try to escape the pudding craving.
    Dinner the last of Sunday’s pork joint with baked aubergine topped with mozzarella. 2 glasses red wine.
    @shelley262 I’m looking forward to seeing the results of your bread experiments. You certainly cracked it with the lc seedy crispbreads.
    @SilverK I was on gabapentin for a while a few years ago. I found the side effects wore off after a couple of weeks and returned if the dose was increased. Didn’t have any appetite to start with though so I don’t know really if that was affected or just my norm at the time. I’m glad it’s controlling the pain though.
    @Mrs T 123 I love the Aldi Moser Roth chocolate - such conveniently sized bars too.
    @ziggy_w thank you! And hugs for the day spent recording lectures - sounds a gruelling task.

    BGs very low (for me) - between 4 and 7 all day yesterday and today. I'm back on my old insulins now and taking less than I used to. And I am eating carbs. Not going over the top with it, but definitely 3 times a day.

    Breakfast - small bowl of porridge and cream.
    Lunch - scrambled eggs (with cream) on RyVita.
    Dinner - Brussels sprouts, streaky bacon, onion, garlic and cannellini beans fry-up.

    Breakfast usual CWC, nut granola
    Late morning,really hungry had coffee and intended biscuits, too many biscuits
    Lunch one slice toast with avocado and lettuce, cup of tea.
    Dinner glass of wine while cooking, bang bang cauliflower from lidl(on special offer)
    With smoked Haddock and brocolli,
    MrSlim went out and bought puddings, and ate two ( bad Lizzy) had made him a baked Apple, probably better if I had eaten that.
    Then he had bread and cheese later in the evening, stole some cheese.
    Am going to have to stop blaming him, but it is not at all helpful when he comes home with six puddings knowing I would enjoy all of them but shouldn't eat even one.
    Maybe I will eat the lot for breakfast at least that gets rid of them!

    Hi I am really enjoying Lizza toasties split and toasted and topped with egg mayo or cheesey coleslaw. I think they need to be to risp and a flavourful topping. Realise neither of my suggestions would work while drivi g though LOL.

    Sorry MIA again the action being finishing the Christmas cards, presents and decorating the latter very minimalistic this year.
    Yesterday and today breakfast slice of HiLo toast, butter, lots of tea.
    Lunch was a Lizza toastie split crisply toasted and topped with egg mayo.
    Today had thin slice of sourdough toasted and topped with cheesey coleslaw and extra grated mature cheddar.
    Supper last night was a panfried lamb chump chop and leftover cooked broccoli added to the pan juices. Tonight is Fishfinger Firsday.

    @PenguinMum excellent for FFT. Not so much No 2 on my list of pet Christmas hates - cards - crackers are No 1. My menu (expanded in parallel thread.) B= Assam TWAMIS : Dockey: CWC+3 pralines; L: Waitrose deli counter antipasti, soft cheese stuffed mini peppers + cooked beef ;tea; EM will be : Oxtail casserole, sauteed sprouts and chorizo, cheese, swede and celeriac bake. 125 mls red wine. Lunch = totally my comfort zone even pre-LC. EM the kind of compromises I don’t like about this woe.

    Busy day out and about but at least managed early morning swim before started rushing around.
    Breakfast one each of chipolata sausage, bacon, and egg with LC toast.
    No lunch as out and about - just flask of coffee with cream.
    Dinner slow cooked beef with sprouts and one small roast potato and glass of red wine followed by DGF peanut butter brownie with cream.
    Quiet here without Cooper but busy few days ahead catching up with paid work, caring as ever and getting ready to pick up Mum middle of next week. Just can’t quite believe Christmas Eve is two weeks today ......

    Mid morning breakfast: 90 second mug bread , toasted with butter and marmite. A Yes bar
    That lot fortified me for a trip to a large supermarket for non-food Xmas items. Havent been there in a year, or more. Now there's shops inside the shop. I was like a right country bumpkin marvelling at civilisation

    D: gammon steak with cauliflower cheese (the sauce was cream, cream cheese, grated mozzerella and parmesan just stirred into the boiled cauliflower. I don't miss making bechamels at all, except in the wallet)

    Evening all.

    Playing catch-up.

    Yesterday was a TMAD day. Early lunch was leftover chicken wings from the day before.
    Dinner was a starter of Nando’s Peri Nuts - have developed a taste for them even though they’re on the hot side of spicy for me. Was walking past the store after a walk and went in to order some to take home. Followed up with air fried lamb ribs coated in lemon pepper.

    Today was an unplanned OMAD. Work ran away with me and lunch didn’t happen. Dinner was mince fried with onions, two eggs and some grated cheese.
