    Yesterday:

    B: Bacon and egg
    L: none
    D: tinned salmon, mayo, green salad and cherry toms, followed by an excessive amount of very nice posh vanilla icecream.

    I know that this menu isn't anything like pizza, but the fat, carbs and protein managed to make it A Pizza Effect Meal. Which resulted in very good reading for several hours, and then a spike in the middle of the night as the carbs hit the bloodstream. It was a wide flat spike, but still higher than I want to repeat.
    Pity. That icecream was delish!

    Today:

    B: none
    L: one coffeesubstitute and cream and one fat bomb
    D: home made LC moussaka with green salad and coleslaw

    B: Two toasted Low Carb rolls and Peppermint tea =4carbs
    S: Creamy coffee
    L: Two LC rolls and 1oz Edam =4carbs
    S: Creamy coffee
    Dinner will be Chicken with mixed veg in tomatoes not sure what the carbs will be but probably no more than 10
    Before bed another coffee

    So allowing for coffee x 3 =1.5g of carbs that isn't a bad total for the day =19.5 carbs for the day!

    That's one of my favourite breakfasts, too! Did you see the mock mashed potato recipe I posted? It's astonishingly good.

    Just looked it up @debrasue and printed it off. I've never done the cauli mash thing but will try it. I'm thinking of trying this recipe http://www.ditchthecarbs.com/2014/05/07/low-carb-shepherds-pie-cauliflower-mash/ - Shepherds Pie is a winter staple isn't it. And a nice mash would be so nice - fancy some now it's so darn chilly today!

    Might try it tomorrow and pop in the oven for after we've see A Street cat called Bob at the cinema :cat::cat::cat:

    Now .. thinking about lunch :rolleyes:

    I know what you mean - the cold weather always makes me want to eat things like mashed potato and dumplings!! The mock garlic mash recipe would be brilliant as a topping for Shepherds Pie...
    Enjoy the film - it looks really good.
    Here's the link for anyone wanting to give the mash a try: http://www.foodnetwork.com/recipes/mock-garlic-mashed-potatoes-recipe.html I can highly recommend it. :)

    Hi honey! It's good to have you back - we missed you.
    I'm doing ok, thanks. I'm recovering from sort of weird virus thingy which developed on Saturday and knocked me for six, but I'm feeling better with each day that goes by now. How funny that you should mention the lemon curd - I'm just having some on a bit of toast for breakfast! Life's good; I'm managing to keep my BGs pretty stable and well within range most of the time, I'm in demand work-wise and have the luxury now of being able to cherry-pick the jobs I want and choose when and when not to work, and the grandkids are gorgeous and keeping me entertained. I count my many blessings every day.
    How about you? How are you and your crew? Are your family issues sorted now and giving you some peace? I do hope so - you deserve a break and some me-time, considering everything you do for them all!
    Sending big hugs xxx

    Apologies peeps for derailing the thread. I was so excited to see @amgrundy's post I forgot which thread I was in!
