    Such a good idea with the leeks! I am going to use that this week me thinks. Another good way to get veg into my son.

    Thanks for asking Deejay.
    I'm cooking on a camping gas ring. I have about an ounce of buckwheat flour. I'm not sure what I can tolerate yet. I'm experimenting. I thicken sauces by reduction rather than using carbs.

    Recipes vary, but it's basically a nice strong quality black coffee with a couple of tablespoons each of butter and coconut oil whipped into it.

    I've only come across it recently myself. Tastier than it sounds.

    Hello everybody. I'm really not doing well at keeping on track at present but I did make a crust less quiche for tea with bacon, mushrooms, onions cooked with cottage cheese and grated cheddar and of course the beaten eggs. It was delicious. :)

    Fat bombs are a way of getting fat without the carbs, or with minimal carbs. They can be savoury or sweet and are usually a combination of some of butter, coconut oil, cream cheese, cream, nuts, seeds ….. See post no 1487 for a savoury example. I have posted the recipe for a sweet one but can’t find it. Google it and you’ll find lots of recipes. I use them as a way of getting calories and fat without the carbs now that I am trying to maintain my weight rather than lose any more.

    I just invented a new meal. I was simmering lots of nice veg (onions, courgettes, celery, brocolli, green peppers, fennel and parsley and oak smoked garlic) in a little stock, ready to steam some lovely undyed smoked haddock over it. When I unwrapped the fish I realised it was out of date and smelled funny. So I added some tinned tuna and capers and heated it through, getting rid of all the liquid, then grated some mature cheddar over the lot and grilled it. Sort of a tuna melt - really nice!!

    Dinner: Chinese style pork sausages (cooked with olive oil, spices, onion, yellow pepper, mushrooms and tahini) & green beans. Soya yoghurt (way too much).
