    I like zucchini/courgette fritters as a base for a poached egg and a bit hollandaise. Lots of recipes online, I usually use the one on Once upon a chef site but I use a bit of ground flaxseed instead of flour. The fritters freeze well too.

    I haven't made kedgeree for ages and it works well with cauliflower rice. I put boiled egg through mine too. The trouble is that it makes me think of coulibiac, and I love love love coulibiac! Until I find a LC pastry mix that is edible, however, coulibiac is off the menu.

    Thursday 14 April bed 7.9 FBG 6.8

    @Goonergal - much as I enjoyed the travelling when I was working, I don't miss it now. Especially, when I was away 3 or 4 days a week. The lifts out immediately put a number of memories in my head. I was evacuated so often from hotels, it got to the stage my colleagues preferred not to travel with me. They reckoned I was cursed. In the midst of all the fire evacuations I also had 2 bomb scares. One in Manchester and one in Leeds.

    B. TAG and 4 M&S Wheaten crackers with whipped cheese.

    L. Nothing

    D. 6 chicken wings which were very hot! Overdid the hot paprika. Mayo and coconut milk to cool the mouth. It was a jujitsu evening so didn't really want much when I got home.

    Friday 15 April - bed and FBG both 6 8

    B. TAG and 2 slices of SLC toast with ox tongue and whipped cheese

    L. Nothing

    D. I'm turning into @Goonergal I think. A carnivorous meal of 4 double loin lamb chops (air fried) with mint sauce. Remains of coconut milk from yesterday.

    Later, one if the mini Dark raspberry bars from Lidl. (@MrsA2 - just the Hazelnut and the milk chocolate ones remain in my Lidl stores so I can't buy any more until next time. Thus was only my 3rd mini bar so I do still have lots left.)

    This was a chaotic day. DIL, both boys, hubby and myself all getting hair cut etc at ours. The mini whirlwind was here too. For something with such little legs he is very fast and likes to play chasing! 20220415_193202.jpg facebook_1644870679217_6899087669324997193.jpg

    There's a very nasty "super cold" doing the rounds. I know, I've had it (preceded by Norovirus!). You may be "lucky" and it will be the super cold - nasty but you should be improving by Wednesday

    There's an issue getting Lakanto Monk Fruit currently in the UK. It is some kind of hang over from EU approval rules. It was supposed to be reapproved 2020 but then a certain pandemic got in the way. I had to get my last batch brought over from the USA It's on sale in Australia too but they've been unable to travel for a while. I always got mine from mydietshop before these issues started.

    I also found this site too. Like LuckyVitamins they are based in Calfornia. They do say they have new low cost shipping rates to the UK but you also have to watch for tax on incoming goods. That has to be paid once you get notification before the courier can deliver. @shelley262 did you get a request to pay tax before you got your liquid Lakanto from lucky vitamins?

    https://www.allstarhealth.com/en-gb...6yd52tmFVNUji2pnMU351ioDYR9Aao6RoCeKUQAvD_BwE

    They do appear to have Golden in stock.

    Correction @Goonergal was lucky vitamin not @shelley262 (although I suspect that was from the USA too).

    Hiya I got it from U.K. company
    https://www.ketofitnessclub.com/collections/food-products
    But note that seems to be no longer available so they must have sold out! Monkfruit clearly a U.K. shortage had I realised I’d have bought several as I really like the liquid version just a few drops needed for things like my stewed rhubarb. Luckily a few drops go a long way -hoping will become available again by time need more. Mind you I’m happy too with a small amount of powdered eyrithritol so would sub monkfruit with this if needed
    @Rachox and @MrsA2 hugs for your illnesses.
    I had shingles 6 years ago @Rachox at a very emotionally stressful time of my life do take care of yourself it’s very painful and debilitating,
    @MrsA2 hope you manage to get away on holiday.

    Feel better soon @MrsA2 and @Rachox

    I hear you! Most of my work related travel was long-haul, and while I enjoyed much of it, my long-haul travel for leisure dipped in proportion to the work travel. No evacuations but I do boast a month stay in a hotel in Ghana where I shared the room with a mouse. The hotel staff were not convinced, but a few weeks after returning home, I had a message passed on by a colleague based out there to ‘tell Miss Goonergal we’ve found her mouse’!

    Yum! But hold the mint sauce for my portion.

    Haven’t posted for a couple of days.

    Still away and hotel breakfast each day is a 3 egg omelette with ham, onion and cheese with a side of bacon. The ‘side’ seems to be getting larger :D

    Dinner yesterday was a large beef gymbox from German Doner Kebab. Followed by extra thick double cream, almond butter and Lindt 90% in my room.

    Today was lemon pepper wings from Wing Stop, with the same dessert back at the hotel.

    Still feeling grotty, but not quite as much as yesterday.
    Stayed in bed most of the day.
    Had one hot cross bun and ff greek and seeds and blueberries for breakfast
    L: cold salmon and salad. 1 piece hm lc choc cake with cream
    D: very slow cooked lamb. Son had put it in at 10. I thought he had forgotten as I couldn't smell it cooking, but apparently everyone else could, even the neighbours!
    Served with slow cooked whole celeriac and whole swede. Few carrots and gravy. Lots left for a wonderful sheperds pie tomorrow .
    1 scoop ice cream
    Looking back at food for today have had way too many carbs and sweet things which I couldn't even really taste. Needed to comfort myself think.

    Thanks for all the good wishes, lovely people

Usual trip to jujitsu then took youngest grandson with me to visit my SIL, niece, her hubby and little girl. I haven't been able to visit for a few weeks due to my "bugs".

    B. TAG and 1 M&S Wheaten cracker with salmon pate (no time for anything else)

    L. 2 cups of black tea a SILs
    Much later when I got home SLC bread sandwich with whipped cheese and ox tongue.

    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 a phd bar.
    Dinner: Brie and cranberry sandwiches with coleslaw followed by DGF ginger cake and cream.
    Comfort eating today was Cheesies!

    Yes you are right the shingles are more than ‘uncomfortable’, however if I said what I really think I’ll fall foul of forum language censorship!

    Another tired day after losing sleep but took our youngest sons dog back today so crossing fingers sleep will go back to normal. Mind you had a laughing session during the night when woken by a dreadful noise and worried about OH that he was breathing so heavily and making very weird scary noises I checked him and was told no that wasn’t him it must have been the dog!
    Breakfast unusual for me but needed something before went out had scrambled eggs on slice of my new SLC toast - at 0.6 g of carb I was impressed and also did like the taste of the new V2 loaf.
    Lunch SLC sandwich 2 slices with ham and cheese with mustard and an Easter treat of four squares of 90% chocolate
    Mid pm hm yoghurt and poached yoghurt
    Dinner roast chicken dinner with asparagus cauliflower mash and a few carrots with glass of dry white wine followed by lc chocolate brownie warmed and served with hm yoghurt.

    Winner for being restrained in your language! I do hope it clears up soon.
    I found a whole drawer of Cheesies earlier in the week. I’d totally forgotten I’d put them away. They won’t last long now I’ve found them of course.

    Thank you. I had a feeling it was mydietshop. I’ll keep checking back. I just had a craving for those instant pot creme brûlées but the golden monkfruit is the only sweetener I like in them.
