    @AndBreathe I haven't done beyond 2 hours for a while. I have to say the pasta was okay, the meatballs and tom sauce with parmesan and basil on top would probably been absolutely fine by themselves!
    Be interesting to see what my fasting is, often find my baseline shifts up a bit if I've had carbs...

    @AndBreathe
    so I went and tested again, nearly 4 hours after starting and it was 6.1. I suspect the 30 mins BodyBlade activity may have checked the rise or consumed some BG,

    Yesterday startef so well and ended up grazing....

    So this morning I woke up starving... forgot to test fasting BG.

    Experimental Breakfast:
    Dandelion coffee with coconut milk (koko one) vanilla extract and tsp of butter whisked up. (I can imagine real coffee, cream with vanilla extract would be a dream, my version was alas a poor imitation)

    HM coconut milk yoghurt which is really thin so kefir really, I used with some chia seeds and vanilla again. And tastes gooood.

    S: boiled egg/mayo on rice cake.

    Having lunch out, so let's see how that goes.

    Breakfast today was Scrambled Egg, bacon, sausages, mushroom and tomato, and I decided to add a slice of M&S German Rye bread toasted, as it has little affect on my BG. Problem is I have had the munchies all day, which is the first time I've had carb cravings for ages.

    Lunch was Parma ham, Brie, cheddar, sun dried toms and some olives.

    Dinner was roast chicken without the trimmings and various green veg, followed by raspberries and Greek yog.

    I want to grow chives.
    As kids we were always being sent out to cut chives for potato salad. Now i would use them on a LOT more.

    But all can find are the seeds, and that would mean no harvest for far too long.

    Amazing that the humble chive is so humble that no one seems to bother any more!

    I grow chives in my herb patch. Bought as a plant from the garden centre, I'm no good with seeds! Love the flowers too :)

    Haven't posted much here lately as I fear my diet is pretty boring in comparison to most but had to mention that I tried the 'English Muffins' that Mongolia linked to on Page 52 http://beautyandthefoodie.com/quick-paleo-english-muffins/ & they were really lovely. More brioche-like than muffin-like to me - even without sweetener or vanilla - but had them with creamy scrambled eggs & veg bacon & enjoyed it thoroughly! Plan to try making a sugarfree blueberry syrup & try them with some thick cream :joyful:

    I already had a win with the spinach puff recipe you posted @Mongolia so thank you again :D

    Thank you. :) I will try the muffins. I'm finding bread difficult again. I bought a Sukrin loaf mix and made it but it was tiny and I wasn't keen so I am on the search again. I just find bread so handy. I think I miss that more than the taste lol :)

    Glad you enjoyed them! They are very versatile - I cut them in half, fry in butter and throw in the blueberries to fry as well. They start to break down and go syrupy which soaks into the muffins:hungry: Serve with double cream. Yes I do have this for breakfast!
