    I'll say. I'd be starving if that's all I had!!

    B - 3 bacon with some cheddar melted on top, cholesterol-lowering yogurt drink
    L - Smoked mackerel fillet with spinach, cherry toms & cashew nuts
    D - 2 poached eggs, 2 pork sausages fried in butter, kale crisps & roasted pistachios. Plus a bit of yesterday's cheese sauce.

    just under 1400 calories - 110g fat, 30g carb, 77 protein - perfect.

    Question - how long is keto cheese sauce (double cream with cheese melted into it) good for in the fridge?

    @Mongolia . I ordered some ugg bread after you posted about it. It came today so I haven't made it yet. I've also saved various bread is type recipes that I intend to try too. This website is brilliant for learning from other people's experiences. :)

    D: Fish'n'chips.
    On the evening of October 5 last year Mrs DeeJay & I had full-strength fish'n'chips with ketchup. An hour before the meal my BS was 4.9, unusually low for me. After two hours I clocked 12.8 with clean hands, which frightened me so much I forgot to re-test. After four and a half hours it was 6.8.
    So last night we did an encore but with 2 cod, 1 chips. I took the batter off the fish and had 10 chips and a dash of ketchup.
    Before eating, 5.8. Two hours after, 6.8. Three hours, 6.4. No scares there then. But a reminder to be vigilant.
    Of course I had to have a boiled egg and almond bread afterwards to fill up ...

    Went to a BBQ this afternoon and I really stuffed my face, huge plateful but I think I avoided the not so good stuff, it took a lot of willpower to leave the garlic bread, sausage rolls, etc, not forgetting the trifle and gateaux but I didn't skimp on the other things.

    I had pork chop, chicken drumstick, corn on the cob, loads of coleslaw, hardboiled egg, loads of salad with peppers and some little sausages, couple of handfuls of peanuts oh and a tiny bit of pork pie; I even had 2nd helping of egg, coleslaw,salad and peppers plus raspberries and strawberries with fresh cream.

    Came home stuffed and shocked that BS was only 4.7. I think that's my lowest yet.

    Was there plenty of mingling and standing involved? I find that results in lower readings for me. That's what I call really gently exercise!

    From what I can see, the only thing you ate, I would be looking to have in modest portions would be the corn. We'll ignore the pork pie, as that's on my never in my lifetime list, but has been forever. Warm water pastry tastes like cardboard to me.

    You're really making progress copey. Is your husband getting curious at all?

    Lunch - Bacon, Chorizo and cheese omelette
    Dinner - water ! - had an upset tum so thought it better to avoid food for the evening :>(

    Still getting used to managing my Type 2, so am happy when my levels are below 10 (that's what the nurse said to aim for !),,,, Did OK until the evening when it was strangely just over 11 ? !

    Yesterday...
    B - 3 pork sausages
    L - Mackerel salad with cashews and cheese sauce
    D - Mushroom & spring onion omelette

    I've always detested mushrooms since I was a kid, but given my new diet habits I thought I'd give them another try. Still not sold.
