    I just bought some chia seed today, and plan to try it soon (not tomorrow, as have other goodies to enjoy!) - really looking forward to it.

    Breakfast.....coffee
    Lunch....Half Lidl roll spread with one portion of Boursin Garlic and herb cheese (yummy) and chopped tomato
    Dinner.....3 high meat pork sausages, mushrooms, tomato and avocado...all cooked in butter with half a Lidl roll buttered
    raspberries and jelly
    Never liked avocado but find that throwing it in sliced up with any meat I am having...e.g bacon or sausage makes it quite yummy....bit high on the carbs maybe but they are supposed to be good for me so perhaps the good bit out weighs the carbs?

    Hi @Gezzabelle

    Avocados run at about 17g carbs per whole one but they have loads of fibre so the net carbs are really low :) They're also an excellent source of 'good' fats & potassium so definitely good for the low carber - I'd stick with them if they don't spike you.

    Well I had a whole one sliced up and fried lightly in the butter I cooked the sausages in....they were delicious and I had no adverse spike which is even better :)

    Went out last night to a little Italian restaurant.
    Had stuffed mushrooms in a tomato bechamel sauce
    and chicken wrapped in mozzarella and pancetta, it had
    A marinara sauce with that. Thought I'd picked right." WRONG"
    Woke up early this morning feeling very sick and my stomach
    Is swollen, rock solid more like, so god knows what was in the
    Sauce... Probably oodles of carbs and sugar.. My husband who
    Isn't diabetic has been following the LCHF with me, was also
    Unwell and had visited the toilet more than once.:(
    Ah well ' live and learn'.

    That's a shame because in theory , that meal should have been ok , wondering if it couldn't have been the chicken to blame, as in undercooked ? Hope you both feel better soon .
