    Made these yesterday, they're really good! I had to use chorizo instead of peperoni (I got a whole chorizo and cut it into small cubes), which worked fine. And I used normal milk in place of almond.

    Raw Veg day today.
    B Lunch tongue slices (felt like a change) L Raw veg bowl. Once a week I like to make sure I get all the vitamins and minerals from my vegs as I can. Todays bowl consists of carrot,raddish,cress,broccoli,tomato,avocado,celery,cucumber with 35g Edam and 20g salami. The Edam and salami are the rewards for eating raw veg, I eat some veg and reward with the cheese or salami lol. I dont really mind the veg but they do taste nicer with the other stuff. D will be baked mackerel (oily fish day)

    I don't think I've tried cream cake once a week. Don't think I'll be trying it either. Totally enjoying my lchf eating. I've always loved fish, meat and some cheeses. It's the veg that challenges me. I just find them depressive. Psychological, I know. Surrounded by forced dieters all my life and they forced themselves to eat veg. Then still had their cream cakes. I consumed less calories because of it but only one with diabetes. Should I have forced myself to eat veg?
    I now see veg as a necessity to fullfil my healthy eating plan. I'm still eating too much protein. It's something for me to work on.
    Do you feel your portions are correct?

    I have trouble choking down my veg and my vegetable "repertoire" is pretty restricted. I'm constantly on the look out for the best ways to cook veg. Think that's half the battle - cooking them properly! Maybe we need a veg-dodgers' forum ;-)

    Today's a la carte menu ...
    B - bacon & mayo. Buttered coffee
    L - turkey salad
    D - KFC (no chips or gravy, just meat). I seem to be able to tolerate the breadcrumbs OK.
    S - avocado mashed onto a Lidl roll.

    Edit - morning BG indicates I should re-evaluate my response to KFC. ******
