    It was pretty good. And being mainly egg whites seemed to make the omelette fluffier too.

    And an added bonus of a high PE value

    Even with a shedload of cheese it came out at 1.5 (guessed quantities of fish/cheese).

    This is probably a daft question, but what is PE value? I only know it as a financial reckoning of the value of a company (price/earnings value or ratio).

    Hungry day today, so it will be 3 meals.
    Breakfast: 2 sausage meat patties and 2 fried eggs.
    Lunch: Egg mayonnaise
    Dinner: will be some of the chicken vegetable bake I made the other day. That's if I eat it - feeling a bit nauseous again this afternoon - maybe too much egg mayo.

    It refers to Ted Naiman’s (currently in vogue) diet/way of eating - Protein Energy - which prioritises protein. The idea is that by doing this you increase muscle mass and lose fat. He uses a formula in which the aim is to have foods where the total protein grams are greater than or equal to the combined fat and carb grams.

    3 meals today as I had my EEG this morning and was told I should eat within 2 hrs of the test. I took a SLC roll filled with egg Mayo and ate it in the car park beforehand. ( daughter drove me and forbade me to eat it in the car lol)
    Lunch was cold deli meat and h/m coleslaw
    Dinner the last of the DD chicken Philly cheesesteak casserole. No idea why I made so much of this. Wilted spinach with it and a large glass red wine.

    Breakfast: 2 sausages and 2 fried eggs
    Meant to make it a 2MAD but, as yesterday, I was very hungry so had
    Lunch: avocado salad
    That won't be enough for the whole day, so will have to make something for 3rd meal - possibly ham and some more salady things - not that there is much in the fridge - Neil went to town this morning, mainly to take the Scenic in to the garage and did a little shopping but it was very limited. He did come home with a couple of red gem lettuce but no other veg. I have some spring onions and some Brussels sprouts in the fridge, as well as some spinach, so I'll sort something out.

    Had a phone call from the diabetes nurse asking me to go in to the hospital tomorrow for a blood test. The consultant wants to prescribe a new insulin, but wants to check if I am making any insulin myself first. Presumably a c-peptide test which is what I had about 18 months or so ago.

    Bit out of sync with posting food, have been away. Last couple of days with a relative who, also being d2 should have known better, but gave us:
    Dinner one... a trip to the fish and chip shop. I had one piece cod and 2 gherkins, left most of the batter. It still rose me to 9 and kept me there for 3 hours
    Breakfast offered of toast or cereal...I politely declined
    Lunch at a really nice fish restaurant, spiced mackerel with various side bits. Rose me to 8 but only for 90 minutes
    Dinner 2: chilli with beans and rice and tortilla chips :banghead: I had just some of the chilli and had to fill up later with nuts. I asked for cheese but was told they don't have it in the house because of the fat!

    (Edited to add: and they had baked 2 cakes to welcome us!!)

    I think its all catching up with me as woke with fbg of 7 and been there most of the day. Having a hungry day but glad to be back to own fridge. Hello meat, cheese and olives, I've missed you!

    Fried eggs and spinach for breakfast.
    Tuna zoodle salad for lunch
    Bacon cheeseburger lettuce wraps for dinner with a large glass of red.

    @MrsA2 hugs for the difficulty of staying with friends. It’s a very hard thing to navigate but it looks like you did well under trying circumstances. Just for info, most fish&chip shops will do you a steamed fish if you ask.

    Middle of the night and am awake so as good a time as any to catch up!
    Brekkie always a slice of HiLo toast and tea x 2 at least.
    Tuesday and Wed lunch was variously ham, Emmental, Shropshire Blue, cucumber, no more than 3 cherry toms, coleslaw. Now using smaller plate for portion control and makes it look more than it is. Supper both days was tomato & basil omelette because I liked the first one so much, used 6 chopped cherry toms and about 15 Basil leaves torn.
    Yesterday gave in to Fish Finger Firsday with a spoon of roasted Med veg.
    Friday will be baked salmon with lemon butter and broccoli.
