    Lunch today was cheese with apple and tomato - I am so surprised that this gets me through the afternoon but it does and it lowers my BG levels as well, win win:)

    Breakfast: An apple
    Lunch: Lamb stew cooked with lamb bone broth, tomatoes and moroccan spices
    Snack: A tangerine
    Snack again: (I'm working late alright?) Miso Soup
    For tea, will probably have a 2nd helping of the Lamb stew and might go mad and have a piece of bread with it, the gravy is just crying out to have bread dipped in it.
    (We basically got what looked like a whole cubed sheep donated by neighbours at the weekend and cooked the bony bits to make stock and the meaty bits in the slow cooker with some of the stock, two tins of toms and some of the bone stock - it is so meaty and unctious, it's so moreish - when it was first cooked, wife and I stood in front of the slow cooker with spoons just munching away).

    I was so pleased to come across your post @TracyC as I was just about to post exactly the same confession! I don't know what has happened over the past few weeks but I have had cake (brother's birthday), biscuits and sweets (left over from school residential trip and consumed over half term whilst trying to put off report writing:arghh:), chips (pub quiz night), rubbish chocolate and ordinary bread:( Haven't dared to test BS levels during this time but am now determined to get back on it so:
    B: coffeencream
    L: fish, rocket, coleslaw
    D: bolognaise (made with beef mince, fresh blended tomato, onion, garlic, mushrooms, red wine, thyme, almonds and cooked in coconut oil) with courgetti; square 85% choc

    Onwards and upwards:)

    Main thing is you're back on it, we both are! I think for me its about looking for different things to eat, I was living on the same meals every week and it quickly got really tedious. Going to need to do some searching, and fortunately this is a fantastic forum for just that! Good luck <3

    B - Fruit
    L - Lidl Roll with brussels pate
    D - Crustless cheese flan and green salad
    S - Pineapple and 2 squares of Lindt 70%

    Just a strong coffee with double cream first thing before my run:) used to use single cream, but double is only 1.6g of carbs per 100ml, so negligible for a bug blob in my coffee:)

    OOH !!! lovely let me know what they turn out like, just made a peanut butter mug cake, when cooled down halved and spread with best butter the homemade lemon curd, topped with a few strawberries delicious. Gave my mother some of the lemon curd [ she is not diabetic ] but she loved it. She will be 90yrs old in July. She said she is going to make some. Good luck :happy:
