    I had some Sukrin bread for breakfast, spread with Whole Earth peanut butter and homemade lemon curd. It tasted really decadent, but it's totally sugar-free and it's only 7g of carbs!
    Yummy..........

    I needed to find a use for the now redundant potato peeler.

    The bars are kept in the fridge, so I just grab one and slice away.

    I buy the Sukrin bread mix from Amazon - it's quite expensive, but I make it up as 16 individual rolls and then cut each roll into 4 slices, so it's not so bad... And it's the easiest thing in the world to make - you simply mix it up 50/50 with water (1kg bread mix 1 litre of water). The baked rolls freeze well, too.
    https://www.amazon.co.uk/Sukrin-Sun...65058311&sr=1-1&keywords=sukrin+bread+mix+1kg

    I've just created the thread Sugar-free Lemon Curd on the Food, Nutrition and Recipes forum. (And the photograph also shows one of the Sukrin rolls.)
    http://www.diabetes.co.uk/forum/threads/sugar-free-lemon-curd.102466/#post-1170823

    If you like peanut butter, have you ever tried it on low-carb toast (Sukrin bread, or Nimble's not too bad, 8.1g carbs per slice) with slices of fresh kiwi fruit on the top? Scrumptious!
    Hope you enjoy it.

    The lemon curd's quite buttery - I'm not sure you'd need proper butter with it......

    Hi, yes I do thank you. I've managed to get out for 3days on the trot. Walking quite a bit, so have sore legs but its good pain that means I'm using muscle. Still having trouble with my tummy, but I saw the pancreas surgeon on Thursday and I have to start a new pill that acts like the enzymes that the pancreas produce to digest food. As my pancreas is so damaged that my enzymes are going out at the wrong place. So hopefully start that next week. Also got pain clinic on 28th.
    How are you? Xx

    Apologizes for going off subject.
