  3. Do you not like tomatoes? Do they not agree with you? Peppers would work well.

    L: salad with leftover tahini dip as a dressing, fennel tea

    D: crustless quiche (asparagus, tomato and feta) with roasted broccoli.

    I can cope with small amounts, only if they have been well cooked. Raw or lightly cooked a definite no. So annoying as every catering establishment puts tomato on salad and lots of other things too.

    Tues:
    B egg and bacon, coffee & cream
    L crispy bacon strips, chicken slices, coffee & cream
    D fried chorizo sausage & bits of ham mixed into mixed salad - chicory leaves, raddichio, lettuce, celery, tomatoes, cucumber - I like it when this slightly warms the salad, more coffee & cream
    Snacks - more of the bacon strips & some olives
    A pint of PLJ lemon juice & water

    I'm experimenting this week to see if only using cream instead of skimmed milk has any effect. I need to get back to the good ways and good BS I had before Christmas. Falling off the wagon then had a big impact and my BS slowly rose through Jan to March. I will get it back down.

    Last nights dinner was absolutely ace , it actually looked like naughty food on the plate but wasn't :)
    We had chicken thighs marinated in soy and ginger, not a lot but enough to flavour , with a salad , celeriac chips ( now addicted ) and a pile of coleslaw.
