    First proper roast meal at friend'a house yesterday. Tough I find asking for low carb, but ignored things I felt too high.

    She baked a flourless chocolate cake, said it was low carb too so I tried it. Couldn't test until hours later, seemed ok - but high today. Just tried another piece (she gave me leftovers) a whopping 12.0 two hours after eating. No-one knows low carving like a low carb :) but it's a little rude to ask for an ingredients isn't it :) just won't risk it next time!

    Bit of a dilemma at friends, but don't be shy to ask in a restaurant. My DD gave me a heads up yesterday, she is working in a restaurant till xmas, so she can buy me a pressie :) She told me to be careful of restaurants offering sweet potato chips as an alernative to the humble spud , apparently frozen ones are coated in flour so they 'crisp' up :banghead:

    On topic sunday

    L: A fry up, Black pud, bacon, toms, and egg
    D: Roast Pork, a couple of small roast pots, snip,carrot and sprouts, then I licked the spoon from the apple crumble, yuk that's sweet!

    Today - its Mr C's one day off this week, so:

    Breakfast: Eggs, bacon, sausages, grilled tomato and a spoonful of baked beans
    Lunch: Nothing
    Dinner: Mr C is cooking - steak, stir asparagus, green sprouting broccoli and mange tout and - experimental this - aubergine 'pizzas' (just rings of aubergine grilled until tender then topped with tomato topping, olives and mozzarella baked in the oven until golden).

    Forgot

    Snack: Fresh dates - wow, they are fab but (wow again) they really affected my BS - I was hoping it would be different to get the fresh ones and not the ones covered in glucose.... wrong!

    Agree about asking in restaurants - some of them are clueless :)) or say - "oh we have gluten free" - generally I avoid fries, I will occasionally have the real thing, just maybe 5 or 6.

    I also had a bit of real Yorkshire pudding too yesterday. All bad really but I was a good boy all last week :)

    Monday
    breakfast - porridge with a swirl of yoghurt and ground flax seed
    lunch - homemade pumpkin and veg soup
    dinner - chicken breast in a commercial honey and mustard sauce, (carbs weren't too bad for a small portion and I added some almond milk) but I won't be having that sauce again, Mr G and I both agreed our tastes have changed since we began the new diet and it tasted far too sweet :( Broccoli, mushrooms and a few carrot rings on the side.
