    This pitta one is high at 27 but it ranges between 23 and 27.. I guess I'm lucky that bread doesn't spike me at all.. I know what you mean though about missing bread:(
    I guess I can get away with it because I'm not doing very low carb ie 30g or less I'm allowing myself 80g daily and will see how that goes

    I fully recommend anyone wanting ice cream to use the banana ice cream (just banana) Watch the carbs tho. Make sure you peel and chop the banana before freezing. Very difficult to do after lol.http://www.thekitchn.com/how-to-mak...redient-cooking-lessons-from-the-kitchn-93414

    B: Yoghurt, blueberries, milled linseed etc mix from Aldi (I feel I should be receiving free lifetime supplies for all the plugs), cup of tea
    L: Tin of sardines with 4-bean salad (don't knock it if you haven't tried it), apple
    D: Fillet of smoked haddock (baked in foil with some butter), big salad (not the bean variety - my family members have limits to their tolerance). Pear with 3 small slices of mature cheddar. Coffee, one square of Moser-Roth dark mint chocolate (available from...you guessed it. Aldi). Are you listening, Aldi? Leave the free supplies in the porch if I'm out.
