    hi @shelley262 my pecan choc cakes are delicious, I had one yesterday fairly soon after cooking so still ever so slightly warm with cream, today I had one with fage yoghurt, just as yummy :)

    @ianpspurs i think many of us will see slightly elevated meter readings regardless of carb consumption, although I must say today’s match was nowhere near as tense as last weeks, maybe we need to hibernate until Wednesday then we can eat and drink to our hearts content hehe

    Hi I am quite enjoying mine, they are fairly bland but as a wrap with tasty fillings or as a pizza base with tasty toppings they are quick and convenient, they are a bit on the pricy side but hey what cost our health. They are advertised as gluten free, see pic I’ve uploaded

    What a beautiful day, glorious sunshine and a win for England
    Woke to a respectable 5.8 which was the second lowest reading for that time of day this week, didn’t feel hungry so skipped breakfast just had coffee
    Shopping done early due to heat and wanting to be home and settled for the game, still not feeling very hungry but the temptation of choc cake seduced me so I had one of my mini loaf size portions with some fage yoghurt
    Small pack of pork scratchings and 1 salami crisp while watching the football
    Dinner was 2 cold pulled pork flavour sausages, a vintage cheddar beef burger and a mixed peppery leaf salad

    Evening, hope everyone has had a great day: it seemed pretty perfect to me.
    Breakfast was scrambled egg and avocado
    Lunch: trout fillet with salad of watercress, rocket, avocado, walnuts, flaxseed and olive oil/acv dressing. Choc chia pud afterwards.

    Didnt actually watch the football ( shame on me I know) sat in the garden with a friend and a big jug of iced tea listening to the cheers from all around.
    Had a bottle of champagne a bit later.
    Dinner was roast garlic and rosemary marinated lamb, leftover cauli cheese and some asparagus. Followed by a small portion of camembert, a seedy cracker (DD) and glass of red.
    Mr C has already gone to bed - tired and emotional.

    Breakfast: my usual low carb coconut ‘porridge’ with strawberries and cream washed down with a black coffee.
    Lunch was picnic at the seaside: ham, mixed leaf salad, pork scratchings followed by raspberries washed down with Diet Pepsi.
    Mid afternoon at a coffee shop: Black coffee and phd bar
    Dinner at a Brewers Fayre: I picked a meal that was supposed to be two haddock fish cakes with one poached egg, hollandaise sauce and pea shoots. I asked to change the quantities to one fish cake and two eggs, their website said 13g carbs per fish cake. I’m glad I did the swap as level before meal was 5.2 then after was 5.9, higher than I usually get after dinner but the fishcake was pretty large and very tasty.

    Hot today but feeling quite satisfied right now. Held my finger down too long on program of exercise bike when going for 2nd set and got the much harder 3rd level. Found it hard but loved it when I finished! Food list below

    8.00 - 9.00 - 2 pints Tea with skimmed milk - I was watering and hoeing before Mr sun came calling.. Mrs P woke before I finished and wanted ordinary tea but of almond milk there was none until we made some more. (We’ll call it part of my oh so rock n roll celebration)
    11.00 Vente Americano with triple zero stevia and inulin ( Filter coffee mix of Waitrose house and French vanilla )
    14..00 Waitrose Americano
    19.10 : 400 gms Sirloin steak coked 8 hrs in sous vide then finished in pan in butter; - I saved about 150 gms for tomorrow 200 gms mushrooms; 8 cherry tomatoes; 30 gms rocket; 40 gms peashoots and edible flowers; 2.5 tbls H/M garlic Mayo; 1 glass Malbec; Strawberries and Extra thick Jersey double cream; probably several pints of water during evening - I may return to the Malbec - do the celebrating today! Kahlua purchased for espresso cocktail win lose or draw Wednesday - 11 gms carb per shot once every 28 years is ok

    Glorious day here but very hot, even by the sea.
    Didn’t eat until 11am as we drove to the seaside and went to our favourite spot for a cooked breakfast
    Ice cream minus the wafer cone, a treat as I’ve not had any cappuccinos this week
    Mixed onions (spring and red), cherry tomato, hard boiled egg, Brie, bacon and some feta crumbled and sprinkled over followed by choc olive oil cake and fage yoghurt

    Evening all. Hope everyone’s had a lovely day.

    B: scrambled egg, smoked salmon, mushrooms and avocado. Coffee and cream.

    L: 2 slices leftover lamb and around 30g walnuts. Coffee and cream.

    Afternoon spent watching T20 cricket Middx v Gloucs. It was a lovely afternoon in spite of 2 things-
    1) we lost
    2) they confiscated our booze at the gate.
    I had a small Prosecco and 2 white wines from the bar during the afternoon and nibbled on pork scratchings, salami, cheese and DD crackers, and a hard boiled egg.
    Wasn’t the same without our ‘posh’ wine we’d bought with us ( we got our stuff returned at the end) but still a lovely day.
    Relaxing in the garden now and trying to drink lots of water, I often forget I only have 1 kidney now and I need to look after it!

    Ok, this weekend has been awful re food, as we were at a friend's house without transport and most of their bought in food was very naughty, so I had a couple of cheese rolls and some mushrooms cooked in butter.
    I'm allergic to eggs. Really don't like hoummous but do keep trying it. Lunch tomorrow will be 5 cherry tomatoes cheese squares (about 1oz cheddar) and 2 sliced radishes. A Greek yogurt. Tea probably the same or mushrooms in butter. I drink about 3 mugs water and 5 mugs de caff tea daily. 1 orange after tea. I'm vegetarian, egg allergic. Really struggling to know what I can eat. I'm on a carbs course tomorrow. Not holding out much hope it will help. I love most fruit and veg and have tried cutting fruit down. I have type 2, high cholesterol and high blood pressure, which is a bit lower in the 3 weeks I've been on Metformin and trying to be good with food. Good luck everyone.

    I found a Lidl roll in the bottom of my freezer this morning, must have missed it when I last looked for one . Defrosted it and had a bacon roll and tea for breakfast.
    Too hot for lunch so just had an apricot and a coffee with cream.
    Dinner was a rump steak with a mixed salad and then strawberries and fage yoghurt

    Bed 7.3 FBG 6.2. Incredibly humid last night and again today.
    B. GF black pudding - slice, Mattesons chicken sausage bit and fried egg ( another double yolker). Tassimo Americano grande with a dash of cream.
    L. One of these Grenade carb killa bars.
    D. A break from cooking! Son and DIL had a BBQ and thankfully they are low carbers so loads to choose from. Had a bit Chinese pork, bit rib eye, 3 97% Italian sausages with mustard, lettuce, tomato, avocado, veggie kebabs and air fried green beans. Green beans were done with salt, minced garlic and a tiny bit oil - 10 mins in the air fryer. They didn't last.
    BGs fine after at 5.9 but part of that could be down to the bottle !! of prosecco I drunk. Liver is busy. Still don't do it often.
    Must have been hot. No 2 let the dog out and he ended up standing in the paddling pool! I thought he'd head straight for the food too.
