  7. Brunch: cheese beano - low carb bread and lower carb beans, but was expecting a hit. Tested hourly for 3 hours and it barely registered. Odd.
    Snack: creamy decaf and 85% chocolate
    Dinner: Courgetti pesto with feta, sundried tomatoes, flaked almonds

    Well not been posting as life getting in the way...

    B: 500ml of water
    a 2 egg omelette/ crustless quiche with lactofree cream, onion, parma ham, red peppers, parsley and coriander, grated cheese. All cooked in lashings of butter.

    500ml water

    L: nuts and slice of Stilton. Expresso coffee.

    D: stewed mutton, mashed celeriac with huge amount of butter and a couple of grates of nutmeg. Sneaked a tiny amount of sweetcorn. Colslaw with homemade mayo (tastes so much better with cold pressed sunflower oil rather that EVOO).
    1 glass of red wine.

    I made an expresso coffee for a bulletproof, but couldn't face it... took the coconut oil out of the fridge. The butter on the side. Tablespoon out of the drawer. And na, not today. Tomorrow.

    BS pp been within the +2 ranges, but overall numbers have been higher than I like. Foods been a bit rich. I need some full on salads me thinks tomorrow. Along with full water quota.

    Yesterdays menu:

    B: nothing
    L: Toby Carvery: Turkey, beef, ham, 2 chipolatas, courgettes, red cabbage, peas, and then the naughty things: stuffing, cranberry sauce, 1/2 potato, and lots of gravy.
    S: cheese puffs while wacthing movies...


    Despite that I avoided the Yorkshire pudding and potatoes to a great extent, and that my portion of stuffing was small... my BG spiked to the 9's at one hour, and then back to base line of 5's after two... however I was expecting a lesser spike but I guess the gravy is loaded with starches and that wheat in any amount is just the devil... anyways... I enjoyed it :)

    Have a lovely week everyone!

    Ok stayed at Mum's last night and her coconut oil smelt off, so put that in the bin. But I did a 2 tablespoons of butter with half a sachet of beef gelatin in my coffee wizzed with the Bamix annnddd. It went down ok, but **** its like rocket fuel! Been whizzing around on a mission, working up a sweat. I'm debating making another with added coconut oil... but I do want to sleep at some point. Ha! I didn't puke.
