    Hi debrasue, glad your getting over the virus not nice. I`m doing ok too, my results were good, staying in the low 5s most of the time , lost the weight feel a lot better for it. Only thing now is being on the LCHF diet has raised my cholesterol to 5.5 from 4.3, seen doc on Tuesday says to just cut down on the fats I have been eating, told her I didn't want to go on statins, she was fine with that. Only to go back in 6 months. If I can control the Type 2 diabetes I know I can get the cholesterol down too. My mother and father are not too bad, dad waiting to go in hospital again. Mother turned 90 yrs . Got the last grandchild off to school now so have more time in the day to do my family history , started going to the records office at Preston transcribing wills, I just love it. Grandchildren are good for all of us keeps us going. x

    Well, it's not the real thing, of course, but I have to admit with a nice bit of butter it's not a bad substitute! PM me if you want the recipe. :)
    (I'm not excluding anyone here - I don't plan to post my recipes on the open forum any more, but anyone is free to PM me if they want one. I'm happy to share)

    B: eggs, LivLife bread
    L: French sausage, cheese - biscuits
    S: cheese and biscuits

    So far on a count of 20g carbs ... interesting how they sneak up

    D: Cook frozen Pork Dijon (no energy to cook!), only 8g of carbs - green veg

    Want cheese afterwards but might be up there on my carb limit. Maybe lashing of Malbec will help :)

    It is soooo easy.

    Just do a low carb red mince - onion, mince, garlic, tomato, worcestershire sauce...
    Cook aubergines as normal
    I add courgette too
    Layer up in baking trays
    Instead of bechamel, i use blobs of ff cream cheese, with grated cheese on top, and a light sprinkle of parmesan

    Bake for 35-40 mins at 180 degrees.

    Serve with salad or extra veg.

    It isn't 'authentic' but it sure fills a hole! :D

    Best Plowman's lunch I ever had was at the Jolly Tanners pub at Staplefield in Sussex in the late 1960's.

    He (Bob the owner) showed me how he pickled his onions from his time as a royal navy cook. I still use the same method for crisp crunchy pickled onion goodness.

    @walnut_face re your comment about 99% choc, don't do it! I bought a bar from fancy Rococo, £4.95 (shoot me now, I'm a marketing mans dream!) and can't stomach it ....

    Sticking to Divine 85% now, best I've found

    Worry not. It need not go to waste. Just use it for cooking, or hot choc, or melt it, and stir in some cream or nuts...

    never let choc go to waste. Haha!
