    I've been having a slice of this new low-GI bread occasionally, about 9.75g carb per slice, toasted to further lower GI, with butter (and ham sometimes). Satisfies my bread craving with minimal impact on my blood sugar. Only found in Singapore though.

    D: Just Cook red chicken Thai curry and Jasmine rice - 16g carbs total, but doesn't spike me and is so tasty

    To follow ... a selection of cheese from France - and the odd glass, or two, of red wine!

    B - egg and mushrooms
    L- cheese sandwich on Lidl roll
    S- 50g almonds
    D - whole bunch of asparagus steamed with lots of butter and an avocado vinegrette.

    22g carbs

    Interesting that Jasmine rice doesn't spike you @PenfoldAPD . I thought it was one of the worst. When I have lost a bit more weight, I'll be trying out different sorts - I hope basmati will be ok (brown or white) even if only in small amounts. I miss rice

    Jasmine rice would spike me, too, at 77g of carbs per 100g of rice. I can eat half a pack (125g) of Tilda Steamed Brown Basmati rice, though as it only has 23g of carbs per 100g of rice and that doesn't spike me.

    Good to know. Thanks. Still, lots of carbs whilst I'm trying to burn fat (only about a stone to get to BMI of 25)

    Ah thanks for the info - not so bad then and cooked, frozen and reheated must help starch resistance.

    Sounds yummy and I think this rub would work well with chicken, too. I'm going to give these a try. :hungry:

    These don't , same as plain almonds ~ 7 g of carbs per 100 g. They also had some honey roasted almonds in their selection which were ~ 40 g of carbs per 100 g. I would have noticed in my BS if they were loaded with sugar :-0

    Here is the link (unfortunately no nutritional info)
