    Another unintentional OMAD today. Yesterday’s oxtail really filled me up and I wasn’t hungry for a full 25 hours. Broke the fast with mince fried with onions and 2 eggs, plus a small bit of air fried beef fat (yum).

    The extra ten minutes did the trick!
    I didn't expect it to taste as good as it did, what a wonderful surprise! :joyful:

    Forgot to mention I topped it with Muenster stinky cheese, which made it a very unusual and yummy dish, but don't try this at home if you're not sure you absolutely love stinky cheese because your whole house will smell of it! :D:hungry:

    Sausages, eggs, and some fried up leftover veggies for breaklfast.
    Two ANZAC biscuits, lemon / lime cordial with a scoop of Osmolax mixed in for smoko.
    Cold meat and salad of lettuce mix, capsicum, tomatoes, red onion rings, sliced mushrooms, black olive pieces, for lunch.
    Leftover salad in low carb wraps, couple of small spoons of mango sorbet for supper at six.

    Another warm day yesterday, not quite as hot as Sundays was though. Couple of electrical light shows last night with a thunder storm rolled through the area, the energy company are repairing the power lines that came down over north Bundaberg.

    Ff greek and seeds for breakfast
    Lunch was 2 chicken drumsticks with a small salad and a bit of manchego
    Found a "real" chocolate shop so bought what I thought was sugar free but turned out to be a vegan copy of chocolate. A tiny 38g bar wasn't worth the 13 g of carbs. Tasted like stale cheap milk chocolate to me.
    Memo to self to read more than just the carb count on the label.

    Made up for it at dinner though. Had booked into a gastro pub that turned out to be more fine dining than upmarket pub.
    2 oysters to start, arrived fried in breadcrumbs, but tasty and small.
    Main was venison with mushroom sauce and pickled blackberries. Had a side of greens and stole 2 of hubbys chips cooked in proper old fashioned dripping.
    Finished with a cheese plate.
    Don't ask the price...and I'm not testing bg either!

    Hi All
    Yesterday usual brekkie slice HiLo toast, lots of tea.
    Lunch Rollitos and last spoon cheesy coleslaw.
    Supper was roasted Med veg with herbs and 2 inch wide strip of Mr PM’s lasagne.
    I have never eaten pumpkin but hated the smell of it when carving with the children. I don’t mind butternut squash but not mad about it.

    Breakfast: chicken sandwich - 29 g carbs so that's enough for the day.

    2nd meal: mushroom soup (cream of). One large mug full. (large mug must be about 300 ml).

    Trying to get organised to go to Inverness tomorrow. The flight is at 8.15 am and we have to be there 60 minutes in advance. So we'll leave home about 6.45. Should be back in Stornoway by just after 4 pm and home by 4.45 or so. Had a slight panic when I couldn't find my appointment letter, but eventually found it printed on the back of a notice about Covid19 (or may the notice was printed on the back of my letter) - confused me for a while.

    Did my second lateral flow test this afternoon. My throat and nose really didn't appreciate it and didn't want to co-operate - coughing, spluttering and sneezing. Still needs must. Went to the pharmacy to get an insulin prescription - my basal dose pen will run out tomorrow morning - but the pharmacist couldn't find the prescription and was certain that there wasn't one, nor was one due because he had fulfilled a prescription last week for it. I persuaded him to look again because I only ordered it on Friday. He found it amongst a box of prescriptions that nobody had collected. All's well that ends ... but I was a bit concerned that I would run out tomorrow morning and then be away and not have any for the following day. Have to take some with me, just in case I am delayed getting home.

    Didn’t fancy a repeat of yesterday’s one small meal so was more organised today:
    B- BLT in SLC roll
    L-Waitrose crab pot with a few M&S seedy crackers. Montezuma’s Absolute black buttons and coffee
    D- Scottish Loch trout fillet from Waitrose with lemon and pepper butter. Green beans and samphire.
    Saving a chocolate walnut brownie to eat during Bake Off.
    Hope all goes well tomorrow @Annb and I’m glad the insulin problem was finally resolved, that must have been a worry.
    @MrsA2 I love the sound of your evening meal out. Pickled blackberries must go really well with venison.

    Couple of slices of cheese on low carb bread for breakfast, as I was not very hungry.
    Chicken pie without the lid, and my usual cordial mix for smoko.
    Pork loin chops, green veggies and gravy, couple of small spoonfuls of passion fruit sorbet.
    Thawed out cocktail prawns and a bit of salad in a low carb wrap, tub of lime jelly for supper at six.

    Another light show last night again, natures fireworks are the best, nearly 25 mls of much needed rain fell as well. :D

    1oz Raw Lambs Liver, 250g pack of Biltong, 4 small lamb chops, half a leg of lamb with carnivore gravy.
    2 cups of cold Green Tea with 15ml MCT oil in each. 2 Litres of water.

    Don't usually have that much lamb but it was on offer recently and just what was defrosted.

    I'm craving carbs like mad, its only been about 2 days since my last fix. I know that it's just my carb and sugar addiction talking though. The very thing that got me in to this **** mess and I'm fighting the urge. It's nothing but toxic waste, a vile sweet tasting poison that makes me feel awful and will eventually kill me. That's what I need to keep telling myself.

    Seems I forgot to post yesterday. On a run of OMADs - not planned, just being led by my appetite.

    Yesterday’s was delicious lamb breast. Added to the pot were the bones given by the butcher - when I bought the meat, the only pre-rolled breasts were stuffed with all sorts of stuff I’m not interested in, so he had to prepare one from scratch. The free bones (messy bit in the picture) were the best bit! And I may have gone back for seconds.

    Good to see you here @Vidar carb addiction is very real but you can get through it. Raw lambs liver is pretty hardcore! Do you freeze it first? I’ve seen some people eat it like pills this way if it’s cut up small and frozen.

    Thank you, I tend to dissappear when I fall off the wagon. Embarrassment, perhaps. First step is admitting you have a problem, right? Well there's no denying I have a problem now.

    Yes, the missus has been chopping it up into small easily swallowed chunks and freezing them. I'm just a little bit worried about the safety of it. Though lots of people seem to do it, you don't see YouTubers talk about anything negative they've experienced by doing it.
