    HJ - Do you still achieve a disc? In other words, the ".... keep it moving...", I'm assuming you almost rotate it, as opposed to any other form of shuffling the celeriac around the pan.

    Yea I've been thinking about that and thought an emulsifier is required. So a bit of beaten egg poured into spiced and seasoned grated celeriac, a bit of thinly sliced onion. Mixed and shaped then pan fried in a OO/butter mix, might work???

    Opps off topic again....

    B: 500ml water.
    chia, coconut milk, ground linseed, almond extract with crunched walnuts. Loving this breki for how easy and filling. Cracked 2 capsules of linseed oil into it as well.
    This kept me going with no snacks for 4.5hrs!! Rushed to check BG and it was 5.4mmol/L

    L: smoked herring in a home made tomato n veg sauce. With Chinese cabbage as wraps and a mixed pepper salad.

    S: 1 tsp peanut butter with seeds

    D: homemade 'slaw with sunflower and pumpkin seeds, leftover herring dish. 1 glass of white wine.

    I didn't eat a lot today as I drank a lot more water than I usually do. So until my body gets used to being actually hydrated, I think my food intake will go down. Can't be a bad thing.

    I hadn't tasted it before willing to fight for it ;-) it was the 4.9g of carbs that got my attention.

    I like crunchy peanut butter, this is a crunch that you get from seeds so not bad. I have had it by the spoon, on a slice of apple and scooped onto celery. And yeah it works.

    Probably over did the keep it moving a bit... it does form a type of disc. I tend to throw the whole lot in, mix and cook and then separate it into smaller rounds which can be flipped.

    I'm liking the idea of adding onion beaten egg @Gravity-Carb .

    They're recipes I found online, maybe even on here somewhere. I thought folks might know them. Anyway...

    Spinach Surrender is 4 eggs, 75g grated cheddar and 100g finely chopped spinach. Mix it all together and bang it in the oven. It's a bit like a quiche.

    Meatza is just pizza but using minced beef as the base. Spread your mince out thinly in a tray and bake for half an hour. Then pile on your toppings and cheese then pop it under the grill.
