    Bolognese , I cooked a small amount of linguine to go with it, put it on my plate then got the guilt trip so quickly swiped it onto the floor for the dogs :)

    Breakfast: Grilled bacon, tomatoes and mushrooms, scrambled eggs
    Lunch: Almond bread with butter and marmite, chunk of strong cheddar
    Dinner: Cauliflower and broccoli baked in coconut oil, ginger, garlic and chilli. Turns out this is not filling, so then dipped almond bread in remains of the oil :) Then berries and yogurt.

    Quick Venison meatballs in Tomato & Basil Sauce with Zero carb noodles/spaghetti.

    Sometimes I can't be bothered to cook from scratch. I need something quick, easy & filling which is low carb too. So for the family evening meal, we had Lidl Venison Meatballs with a jar of Lloyd Grossman Tomato & Basil sauce. Sometimes I bulk the sauce out with mushrooms or whatever veg is in the fridge...but not tonight. This was served with Bare Naked noodles as a spaghetti substitute. I get mine from Morrisons. Parmesan shavings on top. Garden Salad as a side. All done in 15 minutes.

    I've seen those Lloyd Grossman jars. They are much lower carb than most of those ready sauces. Was it nice?

    Hi Brunneria

    It was gorgeous actually. Lidl are a real gem for quality meat that is affordable. And yeah, the Lloyd Grossman sauces are all nicely low carb. SO much easier than faffing about making your own sauce when you're knackered after a busy day. My hubby likes to add chilies to his and I forgot to add, we always put some Parmesan shavings on top.

    A very nice lady on here gave me the recipe for low carb hot chocolate...which finished it off very nicely. ;)

    Can I suggest we sticky the old thread that has been locked? My reasoning is that it had a bucket load of good ideas that as a newbie to me was invaluable. I think a lot of good suggestions will be lost to new members which will be a shame.

    Within about 30 minutes of it being locked, I asked for the same thing, but I haven't had a response. I'll take @Giverny and @admin here in case they've been a bit busy and not seen the request. That said, I have messaged Giverny a couple of times of late, but not had any response to those either. Perhaps things are a bit busy behind the scenes at DCUK at the moment.

    I like the Lloyd Grossman sauces too - the lowest carb seems to be the puttanesca :)

    Yesterday:

    B - eggs and mushrooms, coffee with double cream
    L - a bit of hummus, half an avocado, some blue cheese, a tomato and a couple of small salami slices
    D - avocado vinaigrette (I should make my own but we use Farrington's 'mellow yellow' classic vinaigrette, 3.9 g carbs per 100 g), proper Angus burger and cauli/cheese, berries and cream, red wine (no I'm not saying how much red wine ;)

  15. Welcome :)

    Your smoothie sounds delicious. Is it quite filling?

  16. I heard about that sauce on the food network. The translation is quite rude!

    I have just had my usual so far today - cheese omelette, blueberry chia pudding with pecans, fennel tea.

    yes it is, I normally get three to four glasses, of juice out of it... so I can last till lunch time and I don't feel like snaking in between.

    I vary it every day.. one day I do spinach, banana, grapefruit. cucumber that is really nice I juice that with coconut water.

    I can actually miss the chocolate aisles out in the supermarket now lol
