    Another early post food wise as I keep forgetting later on

    Breakfast - Hi-lo toast and butter
    Lunch - Pate on five sourdough crackers (10g carbs), chicken bites, rollitos, olives, tomatoes, cucumber and pepper. Strawberries and cream with pumpkin and sunflower seeds.
    Later for Dinner - Chicken grill with small sweetcorn portion and ahem:rolleyes: halloumi fries. Quick dinner so eating the shop bought ones first @Brunneria! This is so I can provide a well balanced and honest review for @DJC3 . The things I do.

    Snacks - probably have a go at @Goonergal chocolate mousse for one now I have my little mitts on some Hotel Chocolat 100% buttons.
    and smoked almonds......of course

    I'm OK thanks ziggy. I had the boys most of today so they're a distraction and we're off to Liverpool early tomorrow for the Terracotta Warrior Exhibition. We're back late Monday and the funeral is Wednesday so it gives me a few days away beforehand.

    Hi all hope everyone had a good Friday weather so lovely after a foggy start and managed a good walk too - wonderful autumn colours quite amazing and uplifting.
    Breakfast one slice of bacon and egg
    Lunch veggie soup and LC seeded crispbreads
    Dinner chilli on bed of buttered mushrooms and glass of red followed by LC trifle ( I’m perfecting the recipe for when go to mums in just over a weeks time! Well that’s my excuse !)
    Have been checking EMIS patient records a few times today knowing test results wouldn’t be there - but you just can’t help yourself! Reminder to self get an appointment for tests early in the week so you don’t have to put up with the extra weekend wait!

    Shelley - My results are often "published to me" after hours. I think my GP does a bit of work in the early evenings.

    Evening all. Dull start (the weather not me) but glorious by 3.30 when I did my impersonation of a walk. Miscalculated things today so ended up an OMAD day with 26 hrs between meals. @shelley262 don't sweat the small stuff, results will be fine. @tickorama, welcome and that's a high standard you've set. #halloumifriesgate is interesting - we just deep fry them.
    Breakfast: Tea
    Dockey : None
    Lunch : Waitrose coffee with jersey double cream - (it was reduced so I decided to use it)
    Mid Afternoon: Tea
    Evening meal: IP fish stew; parmesan shavings; 3 flaxseed crackers; small piece of Gruyere; tea

    B. Cheese omelette, black tea, black coffee.
    L. Whitebait and mayo
    Snack. Mixed nuts
    D. Quorn sausage Spanish casserole. Aldi double choc mini-dessert (14g carb)
    Fell off the wagon on recent trip to Edinburgh. Went to the Georgian Tearooms in a magnificent building called The Dome. Had an excellent cream tea in beautiful surroundings. Also walked solidly for 2 days so I hope I have headed off the damage!! No sign of halloumi fries.

    Evening all.

    Welcome to the thread @tickorama that breakfast looks delicious.

    @ziggy_w glad BG is behaving a bit better and hope your headache soon goes.

    @Brunneria and @maglil55 the halloumi fries wrapped in bacon may make it to my weekend menu. I picked up some halloumi burgers in Coop this morning (see pic).

    Had a carnivore day today - intend to keep it going for a while. Definitely helps with hunger.

    Lunch was smoked salmon and cream cheese.

    Dinner was chicken wings with Parmesan, pork crunch and garlic salt coating (ditched dusting with ground almonds).

    The Dome used to be one of the big banks branches - RBS. I worked in the office next door for a while and used to cut down the side of the building to work. There's another along the road The Standing Order that used to be a Bank of Scotland. There's a number of grand buildings that used to be banks or insurance companies along George Street. Now They are mostly pubs/restaurants but it is nice how they incorporated the original interiors. Mind, they didn't have much choice , they are listed buildings.

    Welcome to this thread. Sounds like good stuff out of interest though have you tried the lower carb bread like livlife from Waitrose or ocado or Hilo from Sainsburys? The hovis is higher carb than these two - mind you lower than the standard stuff!
