    Breakfast: my usual low carb coconut ‘porridge’ with strawberries washed down with a black coffee.
    Late morning: black coffee and an Atkins bar.
    Skipped lunch.
    Mid afternoon: black coffee and Phd bar.
    Tea at ILs: cold meat, cheese and salad buffet followed by a mini hot cross bun slice! (No Jaffas this week!) :wideyed: but blood sugar was 3.9mmols/l 2 hours later, so looks like I got away with that one!

    Edit for typo

    Nope that's for being a lower carb bun for lower carbs than the ones with a X on them have , that why the hot X buns are 0.50 cents cheaper.

    From the nutrition info from my links to Woolies, X less buns 38.1 carbs per serve, hot X buns 41.1 carbs per serve.

    I quickly changed mine! ;)

    And I made an experimental dish of minced meat, lots of onions, runner beans and tomato paste and tinned tomatoes. To be eaten with grated cheese.
    Tasty!

    Morning all.

    Lovely to see you back @DJC3 - you’ve been missed!

    Yesterday started a bit wayward but ended up on track. Succumbed to a bag of crisps when out picking up some odds and ends - perils of letting myself get too hungry. Interestingly BG moved more on the way back down - quite a peak but right down to 2.9 with an arrow pointing vertically down on the Libre (confirmed by finger stick)!

    Proper lunch of air fried pork belly and chicken wings coated in lemon pepper, also air fried. Supplemented with Fage 0% and Hotel Chocolat 90%.

    Didn’t really have another meal but did have the remaining M&S crackers with copious amounts of Lurpak and 2 cold sausages - had cooked them for lunch in the week, but needed something simple to fill a gap.

    Determined to write up last three days before too much time passes.will look back on posts when I’ve done my accountability but did notice in brief scan that @DJC3 was back so good to see you @DJC3 and well done sticking with it despite complex and demanding times and that @Goonergal managed a 2.9 bg reading after a big rise caused by those naughty crisps @Goonergal your insulin must be working! Interestingly my fbg was lowest in a while this am despite my worry as I’d treated myself to a small roast potato and some carrots yesterday. I think that after almost 5 years of this way of eating I must be more insulin sensitive too but know it’s not good for me to have too much insulin circulating on a regular basis.
    Saturday
    Mid am a few spoons of hm yoghurts
    Lunch two boiled eggs followed by hm yoghurts and stewed rhubarb
    Dinner hm curry and cauliflower rice with gin and soda water pudding sf jelly
    Sunday
    Proper fried breakfast mushrooms egg bacon and sausages
    Lunch hm yoghurts with a few berries and then opened a gift of 85% choc and ate 4 batons
    Dinner roast chicken dinner with a few carrots, a roast potato some English asparagus and glass of dry white wine followed by sf jelly and hm yoghurt
    Today
    Late breakfast of a few spoons of hm yoghurts
    Lunch some cheese and four m and s lc seeded crackers followed by hm yoghurt and a few berries
    Mid pm stress raid on my 85% chocolate batons - ate four!
    Dinner left over roast chicken with salads then pudding lc brownie
    Must stay away from that packet of 85% choc batons I can limit the 100% but not that disciplined with 85 or 90 percent!

    One meal today. I had 2 haddock fillets and just threw them into the oven with some thick slices of lemon, some garlic cloves and some tomato slices - all wrapped in alum foil. I had one of the fillets and some f the tomato and thought I might go back and have the rest later but it's later now and I don't feel like eating so it will go into the fridge and I'll use it up tomorrow.

    Had my first visit since covid yesterday afternoon - 3 of the people I usually talk to on Zoom. It was so nice having someone coming to the house after all this time. We all had a cup of tea and the 3 visitors had some slices of the lemon cake I had made. I made sure they took the rest home with them to avoid any temptation for me.

    Em is due to come this evening for a sleepover and asked if we could have some sushi. Unfortunately Neil couldn't get any in town today but he did get smoked salmon, Parma ham and some soft cheese, so we'll make something with those. Shops empty again - no idea why, it can't be the weather holding the ferry up, so half of my list wasn't available. I notice, though, that the cost was more than I would have paid for the whole shopping a few weeks ago, and much more than I had anticipated. Just as well he couldn't get half of the list - I'd only given him £100 and that wouldn't have been enough if it had all been available. I also noticed yesterday, when the car tax reminder came in that it has gone up considerably as well. Can't quite remember what it was last time but it was under £200; this time it's £210.

    Edited to fix typo.

    Thanks for the welcome back @shelley262 and @Goonergal ( incredible comeback from those crisps by the way, did you feel ok at that level?) and @Antje77 I wouldn’t actually have spotted winner or hug as I use the app so I can only see or hand out ‘likes’.

    Today started with fried eggs, topped with grated cheese and chilli sauerkraut. Lots of black coffee
    Lunch was Turkey salad then a DGF cake with a cup of tea
    Dinner was a Twosleevers instant pot recipe: Carne Guisada ( sort of spicy beef stew) then a couple of handfuls of nuts. I’m trying to use them up to save me constantly grazing on them. Couple of glasses dry white wine and soda.

    How are the homemade probiotic yoghurts working out? Have you noticed any obvious beneficial effects? Quite hard to quantify I expect, especially with a lot of stress going on in your daily life at present.
    I only let myself buy the packs of 3 HC batons for exactly the reason you describe. May not be cost effective but it saves me from myself!
    On the subject of chocolate has anyone tried the DGF milk chocolate?

    Not at that price! I'll stick to 4 or 5 bars of Lidl instead

    Out of routine this week as all exercise classes closed
    Late breakfast/lunch, 2 cold chicken thighs, a small avocado, a hm lc choc brownie
    Nice impromptu afternoon walk in sunshine, loving seeing all the flowers and blossom made some lc brownies to take as a gift tomorrow, so too many licks of spoons.
    D: a hash from yesterday's roast pork, veg and eggs. Boys had the leftover stuffing refried on the side. 1/2 a hot cross bun with cream

    I've tried the app once, years ago. Completely confused me so I gave up on it after a couple of hours.
    Eating something to prevent yourself from eating it? Are you sure this works? :wacky:
    I am so lucky with the chocolate. The home brand 85% bars of the Albert Heijn supermarket chocolate taste better than Lindt or Aldi/Lidl, and are only a little over half the cost of the Lindt bars! :)

    Had the same as yesterday (dish of onions, minced meat, runner beans and canned tomatoes), but made more into a stew by adding the rest of the can of tomatoes, a little water and a very small amount of cream cheese which needed to be eaten. With a generous amount of grated cheese of course. :hungry:
