    Lamb's lettuce is also called corn salad, nut lettuce and field salad in English. No idea what it is called in non-English speaking countries.

    Rucola and veldsla. Which is interesting, considering Annb's response, 'veldsla' literally translates to field salad!
    It's also called 'ezelsoren' in Dutch, meaning donkeys ears. Think the lambs and the donkeys have something to do with the shape of the leaves?

    Not frosty here, but temperature around 2 degrees so breath steams outside.

    Breakfast: a cheese toastie. I seem to be able to cope with some wholemeal bread at present.

    2nd meal will be sausage and cabbage casserole, using yesterday's chicken/pork/cabbage broth.

    Legs have been very bad these last few days - might be the cold or just them getting steadily worse the older I get. Might be, as well, that because I've had to go out several days in a row, the fact that I can't take diuretic tablets on such days mean my legs are more full of fluid. Or perhaps I've been on my feet more than usual. Couldn't stand up at all this morning but I sat on my rollator and worked my way through to the kitchen to take some Co-codamol.

    Didn’t eat until 2 as had dental operation first thing - pleased done but a bit sore and a couple of stitches so soft, no chewing, food needed! On the plus side not as bad as my first operation two months ago, no antibiotics needed this time so my gut bacteria should be relieved and my next appointment in two weeks should be easier - says she madly crossing fingers.
    Late lunch eggs scrambled in butter followed by a spoon of Greek yoghurt
    Dinner h/m tomato sauce (passata) with mushrooms and a slice of soft buttered h/m low carb bread.
    Hoping to be able to get back to more normal food over next few days.

    Still having to be careful chewing as my jaw and mouth remain quite painful from Tuesdays dentist visit. Also keeping up the iron rich foods, dark chocolate is good for iron content, so a couple of squares are often consumed in the evening after posting here!
    Breakfast: my usual low carb coconut ‘porridge’ with strawberries washed down with a black coffee.
    Late morning: black coffee and a carb killa bar.
    Skipped lunch.
    Mid afternoon: black coffee and coffee chia pudding and LC nutty granola.
    Dinner: salmon and cream cheese sandwich on LC bread with beetroot leaf salad and coleslaw followed by DGF lemon and blueberry cake, cream and LC nutty granola.

    B: ff greek with 6 raspberries and seeds
    Skipped lunch as spent a day shopping - well trying on things really. Was very pleased with my new size. Tried various styles to see what suited best. Came away happy but empty handed. The ones I liked were just too expensive to justify.
    4pm a chunk of cheese
    6:30 pm slow cooked paprika beef stew cooked by hubby, with cabbage.

    Slowly getting back to more normal eating after fridays dental operation and feeling more myself - also treated myself to a late morning in bed with cups of black tea and a book.
    Lunch scrambled eggs with slice of h/m lc bread followed by Greek yoghurt
    Mid pm two squares of 90% chocolate
    Dinner roast chicken with celeriac mash, a couple of baby carrots and one small roast potato ( they seem to work ok for my blood sugars if small and pre parboiled and open frozen before roasting - doing it this way too means I can do bag of potatoes and keep a bag of them ready in freezer for a few months, as don’t have them that often. I also use this method with new potatoes which I parboil and then cut into chip shapes and open freeze so I can just have a few chips if fancy some) also had glass of dry white wine followed by low carb blondie with spoon of yoghurt.

    Way behind again. Sunday 31 October. Bed 5.2 FBG 5.9. I have not had a good week. My hideous cold morphed into norovirus. I managed to drag myself upwards to get the bag ready for swimming and a wave of nausea swept over me. Decided to be sensible and stay home. Just as well I did as I couldn't stray from the loo for the next few hours.

    B. Just water
    L. Lots more Water
    D. Had a bit roast chicken, more water and a skyr yoghurt.

    Monday. Bed 1 November 6.7 FBG 6.9. I was absolutely drained. Despite me disinfecting the bathrooms constantly yesterday, Hubby succumbed to the dreaded norovirus today. I got the boys to school then got back to rest again.

    B & L - both of us on lots of water.
    D. A SLC sandwich with a bit more of yesterday's chicken and avocado. Yet more Water.

    Tuesday 2 November bed 6.9 FBG 6.6. I was finally feeling a bit better.

    B. TAG, water and a slice of SLC toast with egg mayo.
    L. Still lots of water.
    D. Yet another SLC sandwich with coronation chicken. A DGF cookie.

    I was recovering, Hubby still not great but at least he'd started eating again.
