    That was yesterday.
    So today I filled aubergine halves with tuna melt batter with extra onions and topped it with stinky cheese and slices of tomato.
    It tasted wonderful, so I won't post my pictures as they look truly horrible :hilarious:.

    Did you bake the aubergine halves first, before you added the tuna batter? I must try this.

    Breakfast: scrambled eggs and kimchi.
    Lunch Fage yoghurt with a few nuts and seeds.
    Dinner: Chicken pie. I used fat head dough for the pie crust on mine ( no pastry on the bottom). Broccoli and a couple of glasses of wine.
    I’ve also had a couple of pints or the cocoa tea that @Goonergal put me on to, very addictive but happily carb free.

    I've often thought the same, but with expensive ingredients the final selling price to allow for profit would put most people off.
    I've been baking today ready for visitors and cooking for 6 rather than just me has really shown me how costly it all is.
    I also assume most people going to low carb/keto cafe would be accompanied by a carb eater, so would they pay extra over what they get in an ordinary cafe?
    Look at the prices for low carb delivered, I can't do that often
    I'd be really interested to hear what other thinks they would pay

    I baked them for a bit before filling them.
    Not being sure on what to do with the aubergine before filling was the main reason for giving up yesterday :hilarious:
    Halving and baking them for about 10 minutes worked out just fine :). After adding the filling I baked them for about 25 minutes.
    And yes, you must try this!

    I think I missed most of last week so will pick up on last Friday.
    Breakfast is ALWAYS slice of HiLo toast cooled, good butter, lots of tea.
    Lunch was slice of Dr Almond bread with cheesy coleslaw and more grated cheese on top. When it got to supper time I had no appetite so decided to fast.
    Saturday lunch was 3 scrambled eggs. Supper was Tandoori King Prawn with cauli bhajee, one popadom.
    Sunday had same lunch, lots of eggs on the cusp of date. Supper was Peking Duck with spring onion, cucumber and a little hoisin sauce, no pancakes, delicious. Bought in Sainsburys, amazing value two packs (each half duck & 12 pancakes) fed three of us.
    Today I will be having Dr Almond bread in a minute with my morning tea. Lunch is as yet unknown but prob using up salad bits from the fridge. This evening we are booked to eat at the pub marquee which will be first time in about 18 months so not sure what I can have, most likely steak and salad.

    Can't remember morning food fully. A bit of ff greek, some cheese and some finger licks while preparing a meal for later.

    D: Visitors were treated to layered tuna fritatta from one of the Caldesi cookbooks. Looked nice but I would add more veg and herbs next time. A cold platter of meats and cheeses. Salad and home made lc cheddar crackers. 2 desserts, a mocha tart and a rhubarb and ginger cake. Both lc and absolutely delicious. 1 glass dry rose.

    2mad for me today. A PT session at 12:30 meant I didn’t eat earlier ( I never eat before Hiit workout - too risky) lunch at 2pm was prawns, smoked salmon, 1/2 avocado, salad leaves and h/m mayo.
    Dinner around 6pm was fathead pizza and a couple of glasses red wine.
    @Onlinecaroline an accidental OMAD is all I can manage, if I plan it I end up thinking about food all day long and it becomes too difficult.

    D: very small h/m turkey curry (boys and rice with theirs). 5% fage yoghurt ( doing a taste and carb comparison ) 1 rhubarb sugar free jelly, with orange flavour this time. Very nice but I will be relived when the rhubarb stops cropping

    My meal tasted wonderful, despite the unappetising look!
    Caramelised chicory with balsamic vinegar, pan-fried leftover of sunday's tuna-melt filling and half a jalapeno burger with mushrooms.
    Last week's stolen half jalapeno burger kept nagging me, so I bought new burgers as they were second pack half price again. This time I remembered to put the other half back in the fridge before the cat could get at it too :D
    The chicory was fried in butter, and I added a very small amount of powdered sugar to caramelise. Happy to report the total amount of carbs for the meal was still low enough to not need any insulin :)
