    Only one way to find out use your meter, I find they spike me quite high but levels come down to normal in 2 hours but I prefer to avoid spikes of high amplitude even of short duration if I can.

    Following my little battered fish experiment, my BG two hours after eating was 5.5.

    Pleased with that. One more thing I like added to my list of meals I can eat without spoiling my BG readings.

    Hello
    B. Red berries with Greek yoghurt

    40 minutes swimming

    L. Lidl walnut pot. Low carb but I didn't realise how calorific they were!

    D. I'm going to make a bolgnaise type with minced beef, tinned tomatoes, onions, mushrooms, courgettes and red and green peppers. If needed I will have half a lidl protein roll. 5 strawberries with yoghurt.

    @Chook sorry to hear of the substitution. It's not the same when you have to attack the pomegranate. :)

    Friday
    B. Slice of TESCO high protein bread with pate and a less sugar latte
    L. Bit lettuce 2 slices of tomato and a bit ham.
    D. 2 slices of that high protein bread again with 4 bits of Lidl's mixed German sausage, lettuce and Helmanns.
    So. 2 Lotus biscuits
    Yesterday was Aqua Fit day which helped my loosened ankle stay loose. Was also family visiting as the rest of the nephews and nieces and their partners were up having been with their in laws at Christmas. My Fitness Pal is moaning at me again.

    Today
    Time to get back on the straight and narrow. Well tomorrow then
    B. My Portobello Benedict- portobello mushroom with ham , poached egg and hollandaise. Less sugar latte.
    L. 2 Lotus biscuits and a less sugar latte
    D. Will be various nibbles. Devilled eggs , spicy prawns , various spicy chicken bits , duck in filo pastry, salad and I found some Ryvita crisps that are reasonable since there is no way I could eat 30g of them in one go! May have 2 prosecco tonight.

    Happy new year everyone. I will certainly be glad to say goodbye to 2016. I know there are things I am grateful for but overall it was not the best of years. Here's to 2017.

    Happy new year!
    B. Red berries with yoghurt

    L. Pate and a piece of Camambert

    D. Bolognaise (leftover from yesterday) and a lidl protein roll. This was a mistake ! I hadn't had any bread since the beginning of October . I now feel huge and bloated! The roll is the only different food. 5 strawberries with yoghurt.

    @Chook I love the sound of your buffet. Enjoy:)

    Happy New Year to everyone and I hope it is a healthy one for us all. :)

    Breakfast (when I can face it): Leftovers from last night
    Lunch: Nothing
    Dinner: Roast turkey, pigs in blankets, Mr C' s wonderful sausagemeat and herb stuffing. Sprouts, one parsnip, spoonfull of carrots, runner beans, cranberry sauce and nice gravy.

    The reason for another Christmas dinner is that we can never make up our minds over what we should have for Christmas dinner - beef or Turkey - so we compromise and have the relatively quick to cook roast beef dinner for Christmas and much longer to cook roast turkey dinner on New Year's Day - but sadly no more presents. :(
