    Amendment to my post earlier...
    I'm not having buttered prawns and veg. Too late & too tired. I've nicked some more of my son's spicy breaded chicken (it seems I can cope with the carbs) and I'll have some more babybels for the fat.

    Not the best meal, but I'm too tired to be bothered.

    Hello @PerfectStorm . I'm sorry I seem to be having problems copying and pasting recipe. It was the low carb one minute chocolate mini cake from food.com. There is a search on the website or if you google it will come up. I'm sorry I could not get it to copy. Hope this helps:)

    I did the chocolate one because it uses cocoa and therefore you don't need the flax meal. I don't like flax as it overpowers everything with its smell and taste.

    Thanks @mo53 and @learning2me

    I will probably go for the chocolate one first as I too find that flax can be a bit overpowering, but I'll certainly give them both a try.

    Can anyone advise as to the carb value of croutons please?
    I love Caesar Salad and you really need just a few to give a bit of crunch.
