    Don't you like the One Minute Microwave Muffins? I put loads of seeds in mine and often I add spices... lovely.... They take a couple of minutes to make, literally....

    I haven't tried the muffins but today I made my first ugg foods chia seed bread mix loaf. I rather like it but although the proportion of flax seed is small I can still occasionally taste it. I did think it was very bread like and I enjoyed my first two slices:)

    Are you low-carbing R? Surely cereal is not a good thing to eat? :)

    There are so many sites with them on but I have evolved one that suits me: 1 tbsp ground almonds; 1 tbsp coconut 'flour'; 1 tbsp ground chia seeds; 1 tbsp ground flax; 1 large egg; 1 tbsp melted butter and 1 of coconut oil; 1/4 tsp baking powder; I then add some seeds, and a little warm water if you think the mix is too stiff... mix it all really well and pop into a container which suits you - square tupperware, or round bowl etc. - cook in the microwave for 1 minute, check to make sure it's not soggy in the middle - carefully, it'll be hot... if it's a bit soft still give it another 15 seconds at a time till you think it's done.... I hope this helps, but if you look at any of the low-carb sites they will have the muffins... djfoodie.com is a good one, he makes a nice Swedish Bun... there really are so many... good luck... :)

    This is where refusing to have a microwave is a disadvantage!

    Hi folks. One of my regular "go to" low carb food choices is Morrisons individual Crustless Quiche, which are made in their in-store bakery. Filling & tasty...I've even eaten it for breakfast. Delicious hot or cold. And handy to shove into your bag when you have to eat on the run. Details below. An option for when you need something quick & can't be bothered to cook. :hungry:

    B: scrambled egg & smoked salmon
    L: Ugg bread with goats cheese & red pepper
    D: chicken breast stuffed with Boursin and wrapped in bacon, a few sweet potato chips, sautéed courgettes (courgettes in garden are developing quickly! Discovered an enormous one today hiding under the leaves so have made into crisps to take camping tomorrow. Good low carb snack!) Peanut butter and greek yoghurt ice cream.

    Everyone ready for Bake Off tonight? Think they should be challenged to bake low carb cakes - see how that floats Mary's boat!!

    FBG: 5.9
    B: Coffee with lactofree. 70% Chocolate square. Yogurt, berries, chia seeds, flax, pecans
    L: Broccoli, spinach and courgette soup with yogurt. Gammon steak.
    S: Prunes, pecans, cheese
    S: Yogurt, berries, chia seeds, flax, pecans
    S: Crispy seaweed sheets, sausage with cream cheese
    D: Gammon, avocado, lettuce, sweet potato and feta cheese. 70% Choc square
    Last BG: 5.5

    Yes, I am well aware that this is not looking right... but I have been feeling down, anxious and terribly hungry and I'm trying to stick to it as much as I can and at least trying to indulge in certain type of things rather than washing down a pizza. I think I need some extra carbs from my normal low for a few days until I feel better.

    B: chia seeds and some Aldi linseed & goji berry sprinkle with Lactofree Cream, water and a goodly sprinkle of desiccated coconut. 1 cube of fresh Mango...mmmm
    Coffee n cream

    L: not hungry. But had some nuts with another coffee n cream. (This low caffeine thing doesn't seem to be happening)

    Pre dinner snack: 1 tsp of whole earth peanut butter with seeds. (Purely for taste testing...)

    D: 1/2 Sea bream battered with Gram flour and spices, then fried. A handful of baked Celeriac chips. Huge salad with cucumber spaghetti, Chinese cabbage, cherry toms and a mixture of anti-pasti from the deli counter.

    wow!! that's fantastic!! well done. honestly, my trigs fluctuate between 0.7 and 1.7 which isn't too bad.
    my total cholesterol is around 8.5-10 with LDL between 6.5-8. It has been elevated for many, many months. although i'd like to think it's just part of the body healing itself, my cardiologist is worried given my off the charts CRP levels (50 at one point), that this represents inordinately high risk levels when combined. that's why he advocates the exercise :)
