    I’m not hungry but the thought of a pigasaurus chop with crackling has made my mouth water!

    That looks such a beautiful colour.
    I’ve also tried some not quite room temp yoghurt - in the airing cupboard actually so it’s just a bit warmer. It worked very well. I’ve currently got a batch with inulin cooking in the IP just using UHT milk which suits me as I can’t be trusted to watch a pan of milk and stop it boiling over.
    It still seems that yoghurt, even long fermented, is spiking my BG and I’m quite cheesed off about it.

    Thanks for the fridge gravel info @MrsA2 - great idea.
    Todays food:
    B- h/m yoghurt with seeds
    L- Brie, ham, sauerkraut, olives. I’m trying to wean myself off pudding so had a microwaved egg afterwards. Not the same thing at all but actually it worked as it put a bit of time in between eating and my stomach realising it had food in it.
    D- Duck breast cooked sous vide yesterday but longer than @maglil55 ‘s as these were enormous. Nearly 400g each. Who knew ducks could be so well endowed? Crisped up in airfryer today and served with stir fry veg. Fabulous. 2 glasses red and a dollop of stewed rhubarb after. IMG_1656100243.535674.jpg

    B: 1 apricot with handful pecans chopped into ff greek
    L: blue cheese on 2 crackers. Hm lc coffee cake with cream
    D: 2 pork medallions in mushrooms and cream. Fried courgette. Boiled broccoli. More hm lc coffee cake. Large white wine.

    Somewhere in the day another 2 apricots have disappeared into my mouth. I was supposed to be testing them with libre, but replacement only just arrived and I can't decide when to use it. Might save it for upcoming trip in 2 weeks but will have to stay away from fruit bowl meanwhile

    I’ve wondered the same, but Water kefir still contains some sugar so Im a bit too much of a wuss to try it. I might just have to stick to the fermented veg, or much smaller quantities of yoghurt if the 36hr cultures are still an issue. Otherwise I might try a non dairy base and see what happens.

    Bacon, egg and cheese omelettte, mushrooms for breakfast.
    Grilled rib steaks, green veggies, splash of buttered mushroom gravy for lunch.
    JO's fishcakes for supper at six.

    Small glass of single malt whisky and a early night to bed listen to ABC Jazz.

    Perhaps if you froze it and used a slicer!

    Would hardly be worth calling such a small piece a slice! Mind with 14g carb in the whole loaf, it barely matters.

    Mind most things have unrealistic portion sizes - most times the meat I buy in the supermarket says it’ll feed 4 and yet it’s perfect for one or one and a bit meals for me. Perhaps it’ll feed 4 loading up on all sorts of other stuff I’d rather avoid.

    Agree about meat portion sizes. When I was at school we were told how to calculate the amount of meat we’d need in a recipe - portion sizes per person = 4oz ( 100g) off the bone and 6oz ( 150g) if on the bone. But I guess that assumed a plateful of spuds too

    I’d be ravenous. There’s a ~700g piece of pork belly in the fridge. Doubt there’ll be much left of it after lunch/linner!

    As usual recently - too stiff and sore to move much, so another breakfast sandwich - ham this time. My chair is too close to the bread bin for comfort, but it's good on days like this when I can't crawl around the place. (Last night Em asked me why I walk like a penguin - when I can walk at all.)

    Later I hope to have freed up a bit and will have the piece of haddock that Neil bought for me just baked with butter and a little salt and pepper. Probably should have some vegetable with it. Possibly just a bed of lettuce.

    Ridiculous really to have my diet dictated by my ability to get around the house. I'm rethinking getting out to the back porch fridge to get fish out and might just have a couple of sausages out of the kitchen fridge with some mushrooms - already cooked ready to make a pate with them. I don't want to admit to Neil that I can't do it and have to ask him to get it for me. Sausages will do and I'll have the fish tomorrow. I should have asked Em before she went off with her mum just after she had her brunch (bacon and tomato ketchup).

    Feeling stuffed.

    Just finished some delicious pork belly slow cooked in the air fryer - used the ‘foil box’ approach. Crackling wasn’t perfect but pretty good all the same. Took longer than I thought to cook, so I had a ‘starter’ of a piece of yesterday’s bread toasted with one of the 3 cheeses I bought this morning. Definitely improved the bread! Have also eaten some more of the brownie, cream and yoghurt.
