    Last night: stir fry with strips of beef marinated in 2 tablespoons soy sauce and some chinese five spice, carrot, red pepper, broccoli, bamboo shoot, mini sweetcorn, snow peas. Edit: sprinkled with toasted sesame seeds
    Followed by literally 7 or 8 doritos from my husbands bag and a plain yoghurt.
    Spiked me by 1 mmol so I guess it was ok.

    Thanks!
    I was very pleased with it although I'll probably marinate the meat in teriyaki (I think that's what it's called) next time.

    Lunch: salad (a mixed bag of rocket, strands of beetroot, and lamb's lettuce) with balsamic vinegar, olive oil, pancetta and roquefort. Mandarin orange. If (or when) that lot sends my BG into the stratosphere then I'll just have to laugh hysterically ;-)

    I brew my coffee every day. Missing my flavoured coffees because they all contain sugar (or worst artificial sugar) I played about putting spices in the grinds before brewing. I must say Star Anise is very nice, a tiny bit goes along way.
