    According to Carbs & Cals 15g of croutons is 10 carbs :) That's 12 croutons according to the photo in the book.

    Oh good - I had 4 so only only 3 or 4g of carbs.
    Well worth it.

    Thank you - do you have Carbs and Cals as an app or hard copy?

    I just had a go at these with what I had lying around. So, cream cheese instead of cottage cheese, kale instead of spinach, no extra cheddar. They came out looking very much like real pancakes - didn't taste of much though. Maybe some mustard or stronger cheeses next time.

    But thanks very much for the idea. It's great!

    Today I have eaten:

    B: Fried egg, 2 rashers and 2 chipolatas, grilled mushroom and tomato

    L: Smoked Mackeral, Mozzarella balls, sundried tomato and marinated artichokes.

    D: a boneless leg of lamb that was 1/2 price at the butchers cooked on the BBQ with pea purée (just peas, mint and garlic) and a few veg cooked then sautéed in butter.

    Had a Mojito earlier ( not sweet as we don't like them sweet made with agave nectar)


    Drinking a bottle of Malbec/Shiraz currently.


    This Low Carb eating is sooooo tough

    I can't disagree.

    I drink my coffee black mostly, and tea very strong with the tiniest splash of skimmed milk.

    I idea of having either drink with even full fat milk makes me shudder, so the thought of cream or anything else makes my stomach do awkward things !!!!
