    Bit of an experimental day today and a couple of spikes as a result, so two more foods are not going back on my "Approved" list.

    Breakfast: Pret Poached Egg, Sausage and Baked Bean Pot (reading one hour later was 8.5!!!! I blame the baked beans. They tasted very sweet)

    Lunch: Thai Green Chicken Curry with pak choi (reading one hour later was 7; I blame the Green Curry as there may well have been sugar in the sauce. I thought I'd risk it as I've eaten many a red curry since diagnosis without any spikes)

    Dinner: leftover roast chicken in gravy with a mountain of Savoy Cabbage.

    Good start. You'll soon get the hang of it.

    B Usual fry-up of black pudding, egg, cheese, half Lidl toasted roll, mushrooms, matoes
    L Home -made shallot, leek & chorizo soup. Why do I always think a whole Vampire chilli in one bowl of soup won't blow my head off?
    D Rabbit stew, steamed veg. Rabbits are definitely not just 4-legged chickens. Alien anatomy.
    S Mug cake

    B: none
    L: got caught out with work and ended up twiddling my thumbs in a cafe for an hour waiting til I could pick up my mended laptop. So had peppermint tea and a ridiculously small and expensive creme caramel (best of a REALLY bad menu!) Bg hit 7 at 90 mins, then dropped nicely. Very pleased.
    S: lc choc brownie with cream - this has less than 0.5mmol/l impact on my bg, so I continue to inhale them daily. :D
    D: chicken and huge portions of green beans and broccoli spears. Stirred cream cheese and 1 tablspoon of Reggae reggae sauce into the greenery. Delicious.

    A good day, although I was hoping to avoid Lunch altogether...

    It is this one - and yes, it IS odd, but it does work. :)
    http://cafedelites.com/2015/07/21/low-carb-zucchini-brownies/

    I used almond flour, which she tells you not to do - but it works fine.
    And next time I will cook it a little longer than she suggests, but that may be my oven, rather than her recipe... :)

    B: none
    L: broth
    S: low carb choc brownie - last one! :nailbiting:
    D: 'Banting Toad in the Hole', broccoli and green beans. I am not going to post a link with the recipe, because it was AWFUL. Neither Mr B nor I actually ate more than a third of our 'hole' portions. The sausages (Black Farmer) were good, but honestly, that batter was dire. The recipe used a combo of coconut and almond flour, but all we could taste was the coconut. And it was thick and stodgy like a heavy cake. What a waste of good ingredients. And there are leftovers today. O Joy. I think I will probably pick the sausages out and eat them alone!

    I would LOVE to find a decent LC batter recipe for Toad in the Hole, but am obviously still searching...
