    @sugar-rush123

    I blame you ENTIRELY.
    I have ordered a Protein Graze box for myself, and one for Mr B as a pressie. That way I get to pick through and take out anything he won't like, so he gets 4 he will love, and I can eat the rest - cos I like EVERYTHING. lol.

    I thought my Graze days were over.

    Having looked at their wee boxes, it looks like the protein options have a 7-20g carb content, usually in nuts with small amounts of pretzel or lentil things. I reckon, that as a trial, I can spread the snack over several hours and hope it doesn't even blip the bg.

    Yeah right.

    Ah well, time will tell.

    D: homemade chicken and red pepper curry with cauli rice in coconut cream.

    B: Porridge with blueberries; small coffee
    L: 3 (small) chicken drumsticks with hummus and salad; apple
    D: 5 pcs lamb tikka with green salad and 4-bean salad. Poured some Greek yoghurt on the tikka, which was wonderful.
    (no poppadums, rice or naan, though I nearly succumbed to the last of these. Stopped myself in time, so feel irritatingly virtuous)
    Pear; small piece of 75% cocoa solid dark chocolate - Moser-Roth

    It's in a beige re-sealable sachet about 7 ins high. It's their own 'Harvest Morn' brand, usually kept near the cereals, and has the words 'Milled linseed, goji berries, pumpkin and sunflower seeds' on front of pack.'

    hi, thanks, I must admit I was so upset my partner said he didn't want me to have more cats if I was gonna be like this :( Basically, I have got 2 young cats now that were being kept in a cage when kittens, it took a while to get them friendly but they seem loads better now. I hope against all hope that Archie may be with another family & being loved & not suffered some horrible fate but I don't want to get told off for writing this in the wrong place. Thanks so much for asking by the way.:):)x:cat:
