    I just went on their website to check out the ingredients. It's currently reduced to £1.99 from £6.49 !
    It contains oats and erythritol, and has very mixed reviews.
    Very easy, and as quick, to make your own using favourite seeds rather than thier pick

    OMAD today. I'm not hungry at all but I will have something later. Didn't have my fish last night either - didn't want anything. Very cold today - not so much the air temperature but it may be the wind chill on the front of the house. Insulation is not as good as we were told it would be when we built the house.

    The one meal will be a wrap (ancient grains - 20 g carbs) with some fish, vegetables, salad and some N African spices in yoghurt. Plus some roasted peanuts and parmesan to sprinkle over the top. Will also make some fish soup with the rest of yesterday's fish and vegetables. Also need to do something with the fresh haddock. Maybe make some big fish fingers and freeze them before it's too late.

    Don't think the calories in today's food will be too much but I have no idea what it might amount to. The wrap itself is 120 cal so even with fish, veg, salad, yoghurt and the sprinkle, it must be within 1000.

    It’s oat fibre rather than oats, not as carby as pure oats, I use it in a few other recipes. Having said that I wouldn’t buy the porridge again.

    I’ve got a bag in the cupboard, just about to go out of date too. I didn’t really like it and only had it once, but it didn’t raise my BG that much. They say 1.6 g carbs per portion. Could it have been the milk you made it with? What milk did you use?

    A day of leftovers, still a lot to get through.
    Chicken and Mayo in SLC roll
    Sliced turkey breast with salad, DGF cookie ( frozen)
    Flash fried steak topped with a slice of Gouda topped with a fried egg and a side of wilted spinach. HC 90% choc afterwards. Still trying to finish my Christmas stash without going overboard.

    Today was the day!

    Finally, after almost 5 years, stamppot andijvie!
    To celebrate this very happy moment I had it with rookworst (Dutch smoked sausage), a couple of rashers of bacon and plenty of melted cheese cubes inside. Next time will be a bit more modest, but this needed a proper celebration, I've missed this dish so much!

    It tasted just as good with cauliflower purée as it does with potatoes too. :)

    [​IMG]

    And this is what it did to my BG, it really is amazing!
    I ate at 8:45, no insulin injected for it, although I might still have had the last bit of active insulin going from injecting for a beer at 5.

    Two hard boiled eggs, two slices of vegimite on low carb toast for breakfast.
    No smoko again, lemon cordial / osmolax brew.
    Grilled lamb shoulder chops, veggies, gravy for lunch.
    Ham and salad low carb wraps for supper at six.

    I never thought of making sausages out of rooks, we have a lot of crows at times, I wonder if they would work.

    Yes could have been - I used semi skimmed as I didn't have anything else but I think I will try it again with coconut milk and not use so much - it's worth a 2nd try especially at nearly £7 a packet - for me it tasted quite chemically so the coconut milk might change the flavour hopefully

    Feta cheese yes.
    Tomatoes depends on your meter. They are technically a fruit and can raise some people too much. Test and see what they do to you.
    As you lower your levels you may find you can tolerate more carbs
    I have 3 or 4 cherry ones about once a fortnight.
    Lots of carb values and great meal ideas on dietdoctor.com

    Feta cheese is no carb, or almost no carb.
    Tomatoes have some carbs but not a lot, so unless you are on a keto type diet, by all means include them in your salad!

    I didn't even realise the literal translation. Don't make sausage out of rooks, considering their diet I don't think they make a sensible source of protein!

    'Rook' is smoke, so rookworst is a smoked sausage. :hungry:

    Hope so, and if it’s one of the 0 carb coconut milk brands it shouldn’t raise your BG either. My daughter quite likes the porridge so she’s working her way through it thank goodness, it’s expensive to waste.
