    Now I have a blood Glucose monitor I am down sizing some portions. Cutting back on the fruits and proteins sorting out what foods do what. I am trying to fit in 5 80g portions of veg per day based on the eat well plate but not eat more than 80g carbohydrates (getting down to about 35-40gs has helped the BS). Some days I eat a lot more than 5 portions. Watching what happens when I eat things has helped. Oh and I stick to around 1300 calories. Best from every world lol

    I got lamb steaks, but use whatever cut you prefer, marinate in bowl with white wine, lemon, olive oil, rosemary, thyme and oregano. I left mine in fridge covered for 24 hours. When you want to serve, chop finely red and white cabbage, a red onion and some iceberg lettuce. I put a tomato on the side and had some mayo as well. Hope this helps. :)

    B: Usual Greek yoghurt with blueberries and linseed mix. Tea.
    L: 2 x tbsp. hummus with the remainder of a 4-bean salad mixed in
    D: Leftover piece of smoked haddock with some pulse-packed leftover veg curry (homemade). I flaked the cod and added it to the sauce. Doesn't sound exactly haute cuisine, but it was excellent - robust, spicy and filling. Followed by small pear and tiny piece of cheddar. Coffee.

    I ate it occasionally before I switched to a low carb diet, but since seeing how much lower carb it is than cow's milk yoghurt, I've been buying it regularly - and now really love it! It's a flavour all its own - but I do also like soya milk.
