    B: a couple of tablespoons ff greek.
    Was supposed to have a snack lunch at garden centre with the oldies, but it was full of kids, some special Halloween event and half term apparently (I thought half term is next week!) So we abandoned that plan and went to a nearly pub. Trouble was they only do curries..
    I had a beef rendang, and ate about 1/4 of the rice, and a white wine (becuase they couldn't do me a tea!!)
    Bg only went to 6.3 so that must have been OK
    D: (not really) a bit of cheese and 5 olives, 1 glass white wine

    Breakfast: fried egg on top of a thin slice of steak.

    Feeling nauseous again, so no lunch. Asked the pharmacist if he has anything to settle nausea but he says I'll have to ask the doctor for that. I'll just eat crisps to settle it, I think. Don't want to take another tablet - or increase the Esomeprazole that I already take.

    Cut up the remainder of the steak to make beef stir fry and a small amount of beef and veg curry but gave up, feeling too exhausted and ill. I'll pack it up and put it in the freezer. Don't expect to eat again today.

    Meal 1 lunchtime-ish: 2 leftover slices meatloaf
    Snack: pack of M&S Serrano ham crisps
    Meal2: h/m bacon cheeseburger in lettuce wrap with Greek style salad. DGF pecan blondie

    @Annb that doesn’t sound right at all, could you ask the GP if there are alternative meds you could try which may not cause nausea?

    2 tablespoons ff greek (hardly worth calling it breakfast)
    Yoga
    Lunch was tapas with girlfriends. There might have been meatballs, artichokes, pork, spinach in cheese sauce, fish gougon (only 1), lamb croquettes, olives. No alcohol! But plenty of chat and laughter.
    Then home for dancing and a late supper of cauliflower and mince

    Brunch - 2 dgf fruit crumbles with last of the cream! Mug of earl grey tea as I was in a rush to go to my hair cut appointment.

    Dinner - I was out at local shopping centre who have new Five Guys @Goonergal so had their bunless bacon cheese burger with lettuce instead, tomato, onions, mushrooms & a little relish - ate with a knife and fork - it was lovely and sooo filling - I'll go back again!

    Feeling better today - the worst of the cold has calmed down so I'm almost back to normal. Now Neil has come down with it.

    Breakfast: a pot of something with no label from the freezer - it was pink but I couldn't identify it, so I left it in the fridge overnight to see what it would turn into. It was berries whipped with some cream. So that's what I had.

    Lunch: a cheese toastie. About 29 carbs, so that's my limit passed for today.

    I will probably have a further meal today so will have some beef curry made with the steak I cut up yesterday.

    Will read back once I’ve recorded today’s food - to catch up with everyone’s news.
    missed a week due to busy caring stuff and travelling back and forth but I’m safe back and hoping to have a more relaxing weekend says she crossing fingers! I also managed to make some more home made lowcarb bread today which I find therapeutic and I had run out of freezer stocks.
    Breakfast just coffee
    Late lunch two slices of low carb bread with a salmon pate followed by raspberries with Greek yoghurt - 0% fage
    Dinner salmon in lemon butter with green beans and glass of dry white wine followed by DGF crumble and more yoghurt- I must say I adore the new autumn crumble tastes very nutty and oaty pleased have got lots in my freezer.

    Evening all.

    A bit of experimentation today.

    Don’t usually do fruit, but found mangosteen in a local greengrocer today. First - and only - taste was in Bangkok in 1990. Loved them and never managed to find them again on subsequent trips to SE Asia. Couldn’t resist.

    6B4D6C97-2AF3-4124-9D70-9CB8831CE479.jpeg BC06116E-4F1C-4F88-B566-A93E2E9979A1.jpeg

    Tasted insanely sweet, but deliberately eaten just before a small plate of lamb fat cadged from the butcher (air fried) and a couple of ‘bricks’ of mince, almost 3 hours later and blood sugars have remained lower than the starting point, Definite win!

    ‘Bricks’ were the second experiment. Got the idea from a carnivore page on FB. They were air fried and went nicely crispy on the outside, while staying juicy. A lazy burger! And the lamb fat - will be getting more of that.

    Earlier there was a roast pork rack. Crackling not pretty, but delicious.

    That all looks fabulous! Never heard of mangosteen though. So you don’t even season the mince bricks, just bung them in as they are? Is each brick about 1lb?

    I put salt on once cooked. These were about 125g each - I split packs of mince in two and freeze after buying and I split one of the halves before air frying, Came out looking very small! Sure it’d work with larger pieces as they’re the same thickness. The crispy edges were soooo good!

    Today I’m very pleased as I managed to find those seedy crackers in M&S - I think they might have been there all along but they were in a different place to the other crackers so I’d missed them. I cleared the shelf!
    B: lc bread toasted, with scrambled egg
    L: Brie, olives, 1/4 avocado and a few broken walnuts.
    D: keto crack chicken ( DD recipe) neede something quick to make- only 15 mins in IP. Large green salad. DGF Notella brownie.
    @shelley262 I wish I’d read your post earlier - I’ve just put a DGF order in but didn’t include those crumbles. From your description I think I’d really like them.

    Think I forgot to post yesterday, but continuing to eat plenty of red meat, green veg, dark choc for the iron content, then upping my intake of nuts and seeds to counter the constipating effect of the iron tablets, while keeping under 40g carbs!
    Today’s food.
    Breakfast: my usual low carb coconut ‘porridge’ with strawberries washed down with a black coffee.
    Late morning: black coffee and a dark choc. Atkins bar.
    Skipped lunch.
    Mid afternoon: black coffee and chocolate chia pudding with nutty LC granola.
    Dinner: lamb and mint koftas with coleslaw and beetroot leaf salad followed by DGF lemon cake, cream and LC nutty granola.

    I bet they were! I shall try this soon. I buy mince from the butchers so it’s not in bricks - ends up in all sorts of shapes (depending on what it’s been squished next to in my bag) but a lump is as good as a brick I reckon.
