    Hi @Amanda61 - I have been making my own bread for several years and now being diagnosed T2 I am on the hunt for a decent bread recipe. Best on that I have found for myself so far is the Wheat and Bran Low-carb bread recipe that I posted here: ://www.diabetes.co.uk/forum/threads/bread-and-bread-recipes.77958/
    Ingredients are a bit pricey and I get most of mine on Amazon.

    B: creamy omelette with mushrooms and shallots

    L: Le Pain Quotidien smoked chicken salad (with prosciutto, blue cheese, egg and avocado on mixed leaves)

    D: lamb hears, leek & mushroom stew, Slim noodles; dessert of choc/banana protein powder (sweetened with sucralose), raw cocoa and a splash of cream (left a too-sweet aftertaste)

    I don't know how I would be with all that wheat.
    The one I've seen is done with flaxseeds.
    I'll try it out and let you know :)

    I'm under a lot of stress at the moment - my mum is in hospital with MRSA and my brother (who is autistic and lives with her) is struggling with the change in routine. Their house is a half hour walk away from mine so I'm spending a lot of time walking there and back, which is playing havoc with my BG. I was feeling especially low when I got back this afternoon so I thought sod it - let's have an almighty great fry up :) So I fried some bacon, sausages and onions, made some scramblers and added some sliced mushrooms and chopped tomatoes - it was just what I needed

    Hope your Mum gets better soon and that things get better for you too. You have so much to cope with right now...and you really deserved that fry up :)

    Thanks Gezzabelle, I thought so too :) Mum's on antibiotics at the moment so we have to wait and see how long she will be staying in hospital - mind you it won't seem so bad if I can come home to a nosh up like that

    I made some yesterday but didn't add coconut oil or the sweetener so altho palatable, needs ( for me ) a little sweetening!!

    Made some egg fried rice for Mr A and little Miss A tonight and it smelt lovely so I had a couple of spoonfuls. My BG has gone from 5.3 to 7.8 in an hour :eek: I'll consider that a clear sign that rice really isn't for me :arghh:

    Out to dinner at a brilliant eaterie in a big hut on a caravan site(!)
    I award myself points for:
    1) Checking menu beforehand & finding they could do variations
    2) Ordering salad instead of chips with steak
    3) Brushing aside the sticky pudding options and persuading them to do strawberries & cream since they had no cheese plate
    4) Drinking fizzy water

    I deduct points for:
    1) Forgetting to ask them to hold the dressing on the salad
    2) Eating 4 grapes found unexpectedly in salad
    3) Eating 4 battered onion rings
    4) Going to friends for black coffee afterwards and forgetting to test at home

    Resolved to do better next time. Damn nice fillet steak though.
