    Breakfast two boiled eggs with slice of HM LC buttered bread
    Lunch a few raspberries from garden with some 0% fage yoghurt
    Mid pm three squares of 90% Lindt choc - find choc below 100% cocoa difficult to restrict - only put out one square with my cup of black tea but got tempted back to the open bar, maybe should have had a proper lunch! Unfortunately tempted when shopping by an offer and a belief I’d earn it due to stress ! so now have four bars in cupboard - I have much better self control with montezumas 100% Black !
    Dinner Cajun chicken with salads- leaves and tomatoes and herbs from garden with a ripe avocado sliced in with lemon juice and olive oil.glass of dry white wine pudding a DGF ginger cake sprinkled with a bit of Cuban rum warmed and served with a bit of 0% fage yoghurt.

    Very happy meal today!
    I made my fathers meatballs for the first time in a long time again, and cooking was full of good memories of my father.
    I love when the ones we miss unexpectedly visit us like this! :)

    In addition to this, there are finally Brussels sprouts in the store, so it was a very festive meal altogether!

    No unfortunately not yet. However I finally have a date to go back into hospital to have the kidney stone and stent removed, on Thursday of next week. It somehow makes it a tiny bit easier to cope with the pain knowing there’s an end point, but it’s still pretty miserable :(

    Hugs for the stress, I quite understand the accidental purchase of 4 bars of Lindt!
    I was reading your post while eating the second handful of Montezumas 100% absolute black buttons I’d just gone back to the packet for!

    A great looking meal, even better for such lovely memories.
    My dad was no cook but I know exactly what you mean by the unexpected visitations of those we’ve loved.

    L. Nothing

    Breakfast: yoghurt with some fruit compote on top. BG was already high after a dreadful night so checking again was pointless. As I suspected, putting up the basal dose only worked for a day or 2. The pharmacy doesn't have the new insulin so I have to wait for it to come in. Then I'll see how that goes.

    2nd meal: will be mackerel with some rhubarb.

    Having to take lots of Dulcolax at present - without much effect, so maybe the rhubarb will help. This is the trouble with reducing the amount of veggies, to ease my stomach - all part of life's rich pattern, I suppose.

    Very busy caring day so took opportunity to restrict eating!
    Lunch a few berries from garden with 0% fage yoghurt
    Mid pm two squares 90%lindt choc
    Dinner - made passata from home grown tomatoes a few days ago - used half today with local grass fed beef mince and mushrooms fried in butter - served with HM LC slice of bread and glass of red wine. Pudding DGF raspberry bakewell with 0% fage yoghurt.
    Booked swim tomorrow morning at open air pool - I need to do more stress relief activities to help me with caring demands and find swimming is one of best things for me. Not expecting sun but no rain forecast locally ! Just to stretch out in water will be good.

    @shelley262 I couldn’t agree more about the de-stressing effects of swimming, especially in the open air. Hope it helps tomorrow.
    Didn’t intend to have breakfast today but the latest ‘accidental’ order of DGF cakes arrived mid morning so had one with my coffee.
    Lunch: scrambled eggs on low carb marmite toast ( snap @Rachox )
    Dinner: air fried pork chop and Heck sausages with broccoli. Another DGF cake with a couple of raspberries and cream.
    Edit for typo

    Wow! This looks delish. I love brussel sprouts although my hypothyroidsm does not allow too much of it. That's why I feel defeated, not only do I have to watch what I eat for the pre-diabetes, but also for the darn hypothyroid, then protein intake for the weak kidneys. Anyway, I could eat more than a platefull of this beautiful dish, as I am always hungry too!
    Today I had lemon water to start at 11:00 am, then 3 celery stalks with homemade coriander-garlic-olive oil dip, 2 egg-mushroom omelette with red peppers, onions and dandelion greens, 1/2 cup mixed legumes (my struggle, weakness for beans, how can I get weaned off of this? I just love it too much). Also, 1 lowcarb toast with aged cheddar cheese and grape tomatoes. Dessert: piece of pressed cottage cheese with pumpkin seeds drizzled with 85% lindt chocolate shavings (which amounted to 1 piece, more or less) and cinnamon. Cup of Matcha green tea to suppress hunger. Nothing till 7:30 pm: 2 slices of apple with Babybel cheese
    Late supper again 9:30 pm: small starter of greek salad consisting of cucumbers, tomatoes, olives, red onion, and feta cheese, oregano and olive oil with apple cider vinegar. Then a cup of bone broth. Main course: salmon filet with cauliflower rice dressed with peppers, garlic, greens and 1/2 cup mixed legumes (yes...again!) Dessert: Greek yogurt, slivered almonds and brazil nuts with a dozen or so red raspberries. Cup of warm almond milk with cinnamon before bed. Always hungry....i need a course in portion control....

    (Mod edit: Did my little mod trick to put the quote in the quote box and your reply as a reply ;). Thanks for your compliment about my sprouts!)

    So far today:

    2 mugs of coffee with cream (lactose free cream)

    Picked at some cooked gammon

    2 squares of Lindt 70% dark chocolate

    Estimated 11g of carbs so far. Planning hard boiled eggs for lunch, not sure about tea yet. Maybe chicken curry and cauliflower rice

    Breakfast: bacon and eggs
    Lunch: a small (tasteless) apple and some cheese
    Evening meal: (if I have one) corn on the cob, grilled with butter
    Plenty of fluids - I've been remiss recently on the amount I'm drinking - falling short of the target. But I have to step it up a bit.
