    Breakfast: vegetable soup - made from the remaining spicy vegetables and some more stock with a little extra tomato puree and seasoning. One slice of wholemeal bread to go with it. I was going to make it cream of vegetable soup, but the cream had gone off.

    2nd meal will be some fried cauliflower and some fish fingers, made with a chunk of white fish I found in the freezer - looks like haddock, but I'm not sure.

    Down to earth with a bump today after a great weekend in Bristol at the PHC conference. Some super meals out with forum friends, including a 20oz New York Strip steak one night and skate wing fried in butter with capers and samphire the next.
    Fridge at home pretty empty and as our kitchen is I still out of action I can’t make anything adventurous.
    B- cheese omelette
    L- smoked salmon pate on LC toast. Fatt bar, caramel and sea salt flavour.
    D- roast peppers, courgette and red onion, tossed in more olive oil and apple cider vinegar when cooked and then a ball of mozzarella torn on top. Makeshift meal but very good, I must remember it. IMG_1653330033.303079.jpg

    Not to be outdone by @DJC3 here’s my steak from a couple of nights ago. Looks very like another posted a bit up thread - liked the restaurant so much I went back again. This was a 539g Picanha. Delicious.

    Today has been a lot of picking - 1pm train home from Bristol and no brekkie meant bits and bobs along the way - nuts, yoghurt, double cream, raspberries, 90% Lindt.

    Proper food taken out of the freezer for tomorrow - pork belly and lamb shoulder.

    I really need to be more disciplined and post meals on here, regularly. Though I doubt I could have the delicious offerings many of you post on here.
    By posting , and being a very truthful sort of person, I have to be giving plenty of thought to meals.
    Today I had late breakfast of Greek yogurt, raspberries and walnuts, with blck decaff coffee.
    Didn’t bother with lunch, just more decaff, and glasses of water.
    Dinner: crustless quiche, salad, beetroot juice.

    I agree, posting here keeps me accountable to myself, although I’m not as regular as I once was.

    Most of them are, there are some new ones that we do not get on with though.

    The fish came from someone I know further up the street who I used to go fishing with.

    I've never seen one of those before. Looks kind of prehistoric. But there's a lot of fish there to make a few meals with. My absolute favourite fish is called "rock salmon", or it used to be called that. But it has nothing to do with rocks and isn't a salmon either. It's a dogfish, or other small shark. Sadly, they seem to be unobtainable here.

    Away again so bit behind.
    Think Monday was skip breakfast, exercise class, lunch was soft boiled egg with asparagus dippers.
    Dinner, our host cooked, having been told I avoid carbs, main of chicken skewers with a peanut satay sauce (of which I had a tiny spoonful as not sure what was in it) and salad. Then produced baked nectarines cooked in honey as "fruit and honey is OK for you isn't it"
    Nope, went to bed on a 10 having eaten 3 hours later than usual too.

    Today, breakfast of homemade seedy crackers . Ate nearly a whole batch (150g seeds)
    L: avocado with cheese and a spoonful of coleslaw. Yoghurt, blueberries and cream
    D: a quarter of hubbys real pizza, with extra cheese. 2 sqs 85% choc. 1 glass red

    Not gone awol but no food report today - I don't want to admit, even to myself, just how bad it has been. BG has been pretty reasonable though. Starting over tomorrow.

    Never heard of dogfish, we have catfish here though, both in our rivers and sea.
