    Carbs today as per GPs instructions. Actually wheat to try to provoke a reaction it seems.

    Brunch: a waffle made with wheat flour and some ham.

    Snack: a pink lady apple.

    2nd meal: probably in about an hour - bacon and eggs.

    BG did rise after the waffle, but less than 2 - because I took an appropriate size dose of insulin. No rise at all after the apple. Oddly, I'm not suffering any noticeable ill effects of the wheat. This is the first time in recent months that wheat products haven't set off a reaction. Typical!

    Hi @DJC3 - Which recipe was the cripsy topping from, please? Sounds like my sort of thing.

    Anything containing chorizo wins in my book.

    Today was home made creamy yoghurt, with some home grown stewed rhubarb. Lunch was a cheese salad, around home grown lettuce and also homegrown rocket. Being super-hungry today, dinner was early and was large portion of curry with a very small portion of rice (c 1 tablespoon) with home made raita and home grown coriander.

    Do you think I might be going a bit Earth Mother here?

    Short answer Yes! Lol.
    Are you growing the leaves in a greenhouse? How do you stop the slugs and snails getting them?

    Looks like this is the important part of the recipe, I'm pretty sure this will be good to top about any oven dish, be it fish, meat, veggies or all of them at once :hungry:
    1. Shred the chorizo with a food processor, or dice it into small pieces with a knife. In a bowl, mix together the chorizo, parmesan cheese, and almond flour.
    2. Add the butter to the bowl and use your hands to mix the ingredients until it resembles crumbs.

    Thanks for the inspiration, @AndBreathe !
    I had no idea what I was going to eat except the last couple of runner beans and zaziki. I used the whole tub of yoghurt (minus a generous portion for the dogs and cats to make room for the cucumber) and a large cucumber so lots of zaziki has to be eaten.

    I'm still not sure what a curry is, exactly. I know they eat it in India but also in Thailand and those curries are presumably completely different.
    But after reading your post I figured minced meat from the freezer, onion, bell pepper, garlic, the leftover runner beans, a tin of tomatoes and various spices made into something like spaghetti sauce would be perfect with my zaziki!

    It's almost ready to eat now :)

    Yes I reckon you’re right that’s about the only important bit. I hadn’t thought of topping veg with it though - aubergine or courgettes would be good

    Breakfast at home: my usual low carb coconut ‘porridge’ with strawberries washed down with a black coffee
    Then a bit of a break to my usual routine as spending the day at Mum’s.
    Lunch: some Brie followed by Greek yoghurt, coffee chia pudding and LC chocolate granola.
    Dinner: Spanish chicken with green beans and carrot followed by SF jelly, strawberries and cream

    Breakfast 2x CWC, nut granola, scrambled eggs.
    CWC
    Lunch, salad, sardines on a cracker type biscuit thing. Wasnt as nice as I had expected it to be. Won't be buying those again. Good thing there are only six in the packet. Cup of tea.
    Tea again
    Today was cleaning the kitchen, seems we have mouse invaders again.
    Glass of wine. Then one of the crackers, and another. Too much wine and too many carbs.
    If anyone finds my self control please send it home to me...
    Dinner smoked chicken, few re-roasted potatoes, cabbage and carrots, coffee flavoured ice cream cone.
    Lemon tea and more lemon tea.

    @Riva_Roxaban I’ve got a jingle going round in my head now! ‘Double diamond works wonders, ….’ Trouble is, I can’t remember the rest!

    Getting back on topic, I’m also having a hungry - and less disciplined - phase with food.

    Yesterday started well with mince fried with eggs and a few onions. Deteriorated a bit with nuts and 89% chocolate (managed to ditch about half of it) plus double cream. Dinner was then some pork belly pieces coated in pink salt and chilli oil and air fried.

    As for what spilt, smooth almond butter looks like on the floor …..:hilarious::hilarious:

    Wouldn’t Errant help with catching mice?
    Sorry I have no self control to send you, there seems to be a shortage. I expect it’ll be Brexit or Covid

    Errant was showing interest couple of days ago. Maybe mouse scent was fresh then. MrSlim thinks he might have poor eyesight, he certainly doesn't pounce on a dropped morsel the way cats usually do.
    We are going to take the cooker out again. .

    @Goonergal
    Do you really want to know?
    Of course you do!

    DD works wonders, works wonders, works wonders,
    DD works wonders. So drink some today.

    Wonder how that claim would stand up to today's advertising standards.

    Do like your description, " less disciplined phase with food" sounds so much better.
