    Its amazing that shops are finally catching on to low carbs. I can find veg spaghetti now and cauliflower rice at supermarkets. One of the things that shocked me is to find out a lot of "stock" cubes are adding carbs to stock. Ive seen them as high as 63g per 100g and as low as 0.5g. Yes I know we dont eat 100gs but its the principle of removing carbs. You can not believe what you are buying if you do not look at the packages.

    This is for yesterday (Sun 28th Feb).
    B: 4 tbsp. Greek yoghurt plus milled linseed, etc (see previous posts) and handful of blueberries
    L: 2 decent tbsp. of hummus with carrot sticks and bean salad
    D: Friends came around for a Sunday dinner. I ate about 4oz each of pork, carrots, cauliflower, shredded cabbage and a single roast potato so small it hardly merits a mention. There, I've said it. A roast potato. Devils come in unusual disguises. I also had a small piece of stilton with an oatcake (Sainbury's, on the cracker shelf but not a cracker) and a small pear. Just noticed how often I've used the word 'small' to describe what I ate.
    The rest of them ate all this (with extravagantly large helpings of roast potatoes and mash, as well as grapes with other types of cracker), and large bowls of trifle to follow, washed down with copious amounts of beer and prosecco). I felt like a eunuch at an orgy. According to this morning's bathroom scales, though, my weight is still reducing. I love those scales.

    I'm pretty new to those sorts of veg. I know husband once made a gratin with spaghetti squash, cream, nutmeg, cheese and maybe a bit of bacon. Might have to do that again soon...

    One more post before I stop hogging the thread: have you tried an Alsatian dish which involves slicing "cervelas" (maybe saveloy?? or some kind of fat processed sausages) sausages down the middle, adding cheese (processed stuff is good for that "junk" factor), and then wrapping in bacon? Google "alsace cervelas" for images... Just saw some in the supermarket and I'm a very happy chicky. 0.5 g carbs per 100 g but best not look too closely at the other ingredients ;-) They will help take my mind off the Doritos and croissants I've bought back for my husband!

    B: Greek yoghurt, linseed mix, blueberries, cup of tea. I know I should be more adventurous/experimental, but it's quick, good to eat and keeps me full the whole morning, so I don't snack at work.
    L: Some hummus with 4-bean salad, apple.
    D: Family were having spaghetti, so I waited till they were all done. Because of the wait my appetite subsided a little, so had a bowl of porridge with more blueberries (and half-a-dozen sultanas when nobody was looking. I followed this - gourmet that I am - with a slice of cold roast pork (yesterday's leftovers). Eat yer heart out, Heston Blumenthal. You watch - within a month the same combination will be on Heston's menus as 'Urban Poor Platter'.

    Nice @zzcanasta ! I picked up the Harvest Morn linseed you recommended from Aldi earlier. Do you have it with Greek Yoghurt most mornings then?

Or as a snack. Delicious. I have 1 every night.. :)

    Thanks @amgrundy, will definitely give this a try :) Does Aldi sell coconut yoghurt or do I need to visit a larger supermarket for such goods?

    I don't think they do I know I had to go to Asda, the Alpro Almond is lovely but then so is the coconut. The raw Oats from Aldi are in a bag [ like a bag of flour] 89p. :) Sometimes I put bran flakes in too for the fibre. Some people can not have bran flakes but I only put a handful in each one it is good for the the fibre we need. . Does not affect my BG readings try and then test 2hrs later let me know how you get on. These have been a life saver for me as I look forward to one of these at night or sometimes if I can not bother to cook a breakfast I will have one of these instead.:)
