    @Brunneria never a problem to share food items for me.
    I get 4-5 scoops of coffee beans, grind them quite fine, it's about 40-50 gms. Filter paper and nearly boiling water and make about 500-600 mls of coffee, flavour rather than strength.
    While the coffee is cooling...
    60g chia seeds, mix with 30 g cocoa and 60 g no added sugar peanut butter, then add slowlyish the coolish coffee and mix and pop in fridge over night and mix again before using.
    Tend to use two spoons to get the peanut butter transferred and mixed.
    I'm not too keen on artificial sweeteners, hence fruit and some nuts of choice

    Hankjam, that is a process alright. Is the concoction 'wiggly' in the morning? It is midnight and my descriptive skills are basic at the best of times....

    I have just finished a jar of peanut butter. Literally eating from the jar, only a spoonful (L) at a time. Promise.

    It is like a firm yogurt.
    I took some to work and my line manager was not at all impressed.... tapioca was texture... my people at work think I eat the strangest things.... more fool them.
    If it is too set, just add a bit more water to loosen.

    ...You are absolutely spot on, as usual, B.... but I find No 4 the hardest because, unless I have lovely fat-bombs in the fridge, I find it difficult to get enough fat some days... :) sounds silly, doesn't it? Susi...

    Hiya Stemar... I hope you're keeping warm enough.... socks on your feet is a good thing when you're a diabetic!! :) It is around 47 here today, but I still have slippers on - the a/c is freezing them! Your day sounds perfect.... except for the sugar in your drinks? Can't you find a sweetener that you like? Or cut it out altogether? Have you tried the One Minute Microwave Muffin recipes? You can make yourself a bun to go with your lovely soft-boiled eggs... :)

    Sounds perfect to me.. :) I don't have that problem - I seem to stay the same, even though I'd like to lose another kilo... maybe I need to stop making almond cakes! :)

    I thought they'd announced in the States that they cannot find a link between 'cholesterol' and heart disease? Why would your guy be moaning at you then? What are your trigs? Mine have gone to 0.35!! Can you imagine? :) They say your readings go nuts for the first 6 months or so though...

    Hi AB... that's good thinking... I don't miss pasta at all, and eat spaghetti squash or pappardelle made from courgettes, but I might keep testing on other things.... I don't eat a lot that I shouldn't, but now and again.... too much almond cake is my downfall....

    What a shame.... Why are you not drinking coffee with cream, or a Bullet Proof coffee? Are you allergic to caffeine? I would miss it more than anything and don't think I could actually give it up... :( I love chia pudding... I put a large tbsp of cacao powder, a couple of big dollops of coconut milk, left in the fridge it turns to cream somehow, and a dollop of cream.... I don't even seem to need much stevia...just a small sprinkle... I have to stop myself from eating the entire thing at one sitting.... lush...
