    B: :eek: Rye bread, toasted, with butter and homemade lemon curd
    (This was sheer bloody-mindedness because I unexpectedly found a crusty rye boule in the freezer and just wanted it. Serves me right, because I've since felt like **** all day - tired, bloated, achey and lethargic - although my BGs didn't go any higher than 7.2 The rest of the loaf has gone in the bin)
    L: Easy breakfast muffin; nectarine and pear (craving fruit)
    D: Cold chicken, cold sausage (that No. 2 granddaughter didn't want!), avocado, baby plum tomatoes, cucumber; fresh fruit salad (as above, with added kiwis, strawberries and apple - still craving fruit!)

    Feels as if it's been a pretty poor day as far as food's concerned.
    :(

    Updated - The fruit took me back to 7.1 after 2 hrs (normal for me is between 5.2 and 5.8) which isn't disastrous I suppose, but now I'm craving chocolate and I haven't had cravings for months prior to that **** bread!
    Lesson learned.

    B: Low Carb Cinnamon Crunch Breakfast Cereal, with cream, 7g carbs per portion, and nary a blip on my blood sugar. Seriously. You wouldn't know I had eaten anything. Awesome, eh?
    L: Mozarrella, cherry toms and olives
    D: Baked Salmon and ginger/lemon stir fry with peppers, carrots, broccoli.

    Of course, my Cinnamon Crunch looks nothing like this, on account of me phaffing with the recipe. But it is delicious, and Mr B has said that he prefers it to muesli, and can I make more NOW cos it won't last long and this rate, and we might run out.
