    It was. The lobsters were not huge which is why I added to it. I coated the mozzarella in a LC crumb. Cut into sticks, dipped in egg then the crumb. Just popped them under the grill.

    I use ground almonds. I have a mill attachment for my Kenwood but I'd used ground almonds before too.

    I was more thinking along the lines of not using almonds at all and only use eggs and crushed pork scratchings. Almonds are expensive as well, and I don't have a kitchen utensil able of grounding almonds.

    Just need to be careful not to melt the mozzarella totally. What about golden milled flax?

    @Onlinecaroline good luck for your blood tests. Your menus are spot on so I’m sure you’ll have great results.
    Today I had black coffee then went out for a walk with Dennis my mini Schnauzer. The hour long walk I’d planned turned into 3 as I got lost and all Cornish lanes look the same so it was difficult to get my bearings.
    By the time I got home I was starving. I’d defrosted some brined chicken wings so they went straight into the airfryer. Halloumi chips, salad leaves and coleslaw eaten before chicken was done. 0%Fage yoghurt then a DGF cake swiftly followed before I realised I had actually eaten enough.
    Dinner was salmon and cumin roast cauli and spinach with some leftover butter chicken curry sauce I found in the freezer. Glass of white.

    Maybe not a bad thing. I was quite glad to discover I didn’t really like the St Clements or the coffee walnut varieties. Stops me impulse buying them.

    Not a lucky day, foodwise.
    When cooking yesterday I also made two small tuna melt things in the oven to eat for lunch today. Which of course I only remembered after having my low carb bread lunch.

    For my evening meal I filled the other portobello with a nice mixture of fried onion, bell pepper, Turkish sausage and gorgonzola. I made my fathers garlic carrots to go with it. Despite really looking forward to the carrots, they tasted horrible, and not a clue what I did wrong. I then found out I did something wrong with the timer for the oven. The portobello hadn't burnt, but there was not much left of the actual mushroom. Had it with the forgotten tuna melt things reheated in the microwave. The carrots went in the bin.

    Lets hope for more enjoyable food tomorrow!

    Lunch - 2 slice of SLC bread with butter and corn beef

    Dinner - pulled pork with G Hughes sugar free BBQ sauce, homemade guacamole, spoonful of yoghurt, cheese and jalapeños.

    Predictably a DGF brownie. I cannot get enough of the strawberries and cream flavour it feels like a custard slice.
