    Carrs Water Biscuits, Jacobs Melts and a few others are 2-3g of Carb per cracker.

    I like lots of Cheese and very little Cracker so I only have a couple.

    Yummy smoked mackerel - my fav. Its going on my shopping list on Monday.
    It's over priced when not in season. I've caught my own and baked in oven in garlic sauce, heaven.

    Holiday over :(

    Today:

    B: Little Chef brekkie - eggs , bacon , half grilled tomatoes, sausages. Interestingly Little Chef will happily sub carb heavy items on their set breakfast for the better stuff AND it wasn't greasy. The downside was they charge silly money for a really awful cup of coffee.
    L: Costa decaff with pouring cream :)
    D: (At home) Steak, baby kale and spinach salad, celeriac chips and roasted cherry tomatoes (only four)
    S: Dolcelatte and red wine

    Back to the 8 week Blood Sugar Diet tomorrow. ;)

    L: leftover shakshuka
    Snack: small grapefruit and pecan nuts (which raised me from about 6.2 to 6.9)
    D: couldn't be bothered so just had 2 roasted chicken thighs and then some soft goat's cheese bundled up in ham (husband was making butties, so I had that and didn't feel deprived!).

    Day 1 of Week 1 of 8 Week Blood Sugar Diet - FBG 7.1 :(

    Breakfast: Lidl Turkish Yoghurt with a teaspoon of Monin sugar free syrup (hazelnut). Cup of Tetley Redbush with vanilla tea. (This will be my regular breakfast while on BSD as its easy and yummy.)

    Lunch: Vegetable stirfry - (hot and spicy) with some of those zero carb noodles (not had the noodles before).

    Dinner: Pork roasted over fennel and leeks, french beans, roast cauliflower and some kind of green veg (haven't decided which one yet). I think I might be tempted to have a tiny little taste of the crackling. :hungry:

    Drinks: Water, water and, yes, yet more water

    I don't go back to work until Wednesday so I am in a cooking frenzy preparing loads of meals to freeze so I don't get tempted to fall off the BSD wagon.
