    Lunch - creamy mushrooms on 2 slice of SLC toast.

    Got a little peckish in the afternoon and had 2 Babybel and a mini chicken satay skewer.

    Dinner - Nando’s take away of chicken wings and halloumi. Definitely went overboard on the halloumi. A DGF brookie with tea.

    Brunch - 1 DGF strawberries & cream slice with sliced strawberries & fresh cream over the top. 1 mug of earl grey tea

    Dinner - 1 lo-dough pizza (made 2, I will put 1 in the fridge for tomorrow) with mushrooms, onions & cheese (I had lo-dough in the cupboard which is out of date end of April) - it didn't look too fresh but used it as I remember it was not cheap, also had a piece last week or week before with kebab meat and I didn't realise I should have put the remaining piece in the fridge so it went straight in the bin. It actually made a decent pizza so will buy again and what is the best fillings you put in them if having as a sandwich type thing?

    Ate breakfast today, but hopefully will still stick to 2MAD
    B: fridge fry up - leftover bits of Halloumi, mushrooms, red pepper and eggs all in one pan.
    L/D: Waitrose Lamb Kleftico, still trying to empty the freezer and this must have been in there a year. Box says serves 4 but I could easily have eaten half if not more. Had it with roast veg ( courgette, red pepper, garlic, mushrooms and broccoli) couple of glasses of wine. Followed by DGF cake and cream.

    Somewhere in the middle I ate a few handfuls of seeds ( sunflower and pumpkin) which were in an open packet on kitchen counter top. Lethal - packet now empty.

    Happy 90+1 birthday to your mum @annabell1 that’s quite an achievement but you seem to have managed to navigate your way through the celebratory food well.

    Fillings have to be moist - as you’ve noticed, LoDough dries out quickly. I like cream cheese ( Spread right to the edge) and smoked salmon. Anything with more volume such as egg mayo or tuna tends to squidge out when you bite into the wrap in my experience.

    Went to bed hungry last night and dreamt about food all night, so listened to my body and had breakfast of ff greek, seeds, nuts and a splodge of cream.
    Then a 2 hour hilly walk catching up with a friend
    L: prawns, one small chicken thigh anda commercial scotch egg. Shouldn't really have ahd the latter, meant to only have half but am obviously having a hungry day.

    Boy is cooking us roast chicken which I will have just with green veg.

    Found 2 sugarfree jelly packets hiding in cupboard - use by 2011 and 2012 - so have made them up as experiment. If I don't post again you'll know it didn't work:)

    Sausages and a mushroom omelette, tomatoes for brakfast.
    Lunch was a low carb wrap filled with cold meat and salad.
    Chicken breasts and veggies gravy for dinner.

    I am going to Brisbane later this morning by train to see a vascular specialist at the RBH tomorrow morning, they are trying to get the incompetent veins in my right leg working so that the wound in my leg heals properly.

    Qld. Health pay for the return train trip and subsidise my accommodation which is a great help. I have been staying at a apartment which is close to the hospital called theAnnexe which is self contained bring your own food.

    There are quite a few takeaway places close by, and just out of the Annexe is a Vietnamese restaurant / take away called Mo Pho which serbves up nice and spicy stuff.

    All the best for your appointments and repairs, and a Vietnamese restaurant around the corner sounds fab!

    Haven’t eaten anything yet, but am being tortured by the smell of slowly roasting lamb leg. May need a small meal before that’s ready!

    Saw this pop up on the feed of someone I follow on Twitter and thought it an interesting idea to test at some point.

    Hi All
    Been missing a bit but will go back to Friday’s supper was roast cod with a dash of Kikkoman Teriyaki sauce and panfried scallops.
    Saturday was lunch of scrambled eggs and a slice of Dr Almond bread & butter. Tandoori King Prawns and cauli bhajee.
    Sunday brunch was 2 slices bacon and scrambled eggs. Supper was lamb chump chop fried with mushrooms & tomato. My boys were watching golf and having a few beers so got them Chinese duck & pancakes pack each from Sainsburys which they really loved. I looked at the pack this morning and it wasnt really very carby. I thought if I only had a couple of pancakes piled high with shredded duck and cucumber/spring onions and ate with a knife and fork it would be a nice change and easy “take out” style meal. I was interested that @MrsT 123 made a successful LoDough pizza another possibility.
    Today made green above veg soup for lunch with last very hard slice of Dr Almond bread. Boys having pie & chips tonight and I am going to make a buttery leek & mature cheddar fritters with a bit of ground almonds to bind the mix inspired by a recipe Tesco emailed me today which included flour. Will report back.
    Breakfasts as always one slice of HiLo toast with thick butter and copious tea.

    3 chicken heck sausages with Goats cheese and beetroot salad for lunch.
    Homemade Kebab meat and salad, with Sauerkraut and onion coleslaw for dinner.

    Had a phonecall from my GP this evening, discussed my insulin usage. She wanted to know why I don't eat breakfast. I explained intermittent fasting. I heard the sigh down the phone followed by "one piece of wholemeal toast for breakfast is fine". Then I had to explain low carb. She knew not to respond after that :-D

    @luceeloo that sigh down the phone made me so cross on your behalf! I hope you made your point.
    @Riva_Roxaban hope all goes well for your journey and appointment. Enjoy your Vietnamese meal.
    Today I was hungry but managed to hold off eating until lunchtime which was ham and eggs, 1/2 avocado and some watercress. A dollop of 0%Fage yoghurt and 3 raspberries.
    Dinner was a keema made with lamb mince and cabbage and 1 spoonful of lentil dhal I didn’t miss the rice at all but love dhal so couldn’t resist. So far no horrible BG spike. I’ll test again at 3 and 4 hrs.

    A frustrating day here in that some planned things didn't go to plan, and some unplanned things did work out OK.
    Sort of lost sight of meals and think a couple of real biscuits disappeared into my mouth, more than once. I keep thinking I can control myself but then find i can't. Best not to have bad food in the house, no matter that I have 2 non diabetic men to feed.

    Even dinner was a mish mash. Had planned a sort of chicken carbonara on cabbage ribbons but ended up doing egg fried rice for the boys. Not sure how that happened!

    Totally forgot to eat the 10 year old jellies made yesterday.

    Must do better tomorrow :)
