    Hope you have a great time in Liverpool. I’d love to see the Terracotta army too.

    @Goonergal I’ll be interested in what you think of the halloumi burgers. Are they just round halloumi slices? Might be nice on top of a regular burger.

    Started the day before the crack of dawn with a little chunk of applewood cheddar and 1/2 litre of water

    Lateish breakfast - livlife again with herb&garlic Boursin , butter and a seed topping;. coffee, double cream & truvia

    No lunch, but the last piece of my Lindt 85% choc during the afternoon.

    Dinner: Ocado have started selling (Waitrose) frozen meatballs - 100% British beef with just salt & pepper added, so some of these baked with mixed olives and red pesto, served with a pile of huge stir fried stringless beans; followed by blackberries and 2 of my tiny windfall apples cooked with butter, lemon juice and Sukrin gold, topped with a good dollop of creme fraiche. (ETA: Blackberry/apple mix is enough to make 3 suitably Robbity sized portions, which is my justification for eating the occasional slightly higher carb fruits ..) Turmeric tea.

    Back to testing again today. I 've been getting interesting readings due to stress & oedema, still very high for me, but quite stable; low carb definitely works!

    fasting/pre breakfast: 7.6
    (didn't test after breakfast as i went back to sleep till nearly lunch time! :dead:)
    pre dinner: 8.2
    2hr post: 7.7

    Breakfast: my usual low carb coconut ‘porridge’ with strawberries and cream washed down with a black coffee.
    Lunch at Wetherspoons with my son and his girlfriend: gammon steak, egg, tomato, mushroom, peas and side salad in place of chips.
    Mid afternoon on the loooooong drive home, **** half term traffic! Raspberry phd smart bar.
    Dinner: M&S ham and cheddar rollitos plus some mozzarella and sun dried tomatoes with pork scratchings, coleslaw and cauliflower and broccoli salad followed by SF jelly, chia pudding and LC chocolate granola.

    I only pop into this thread from time to time but I wanted to say thank you for some great ideas. I had never heard of rollitos, thanks @Goonergal for heads up. Hubby brought some back from m&s along with some pork scratching type snack and I have found Asda do rollitos with iberico cheese and chorizo. Totally hooked! Together with Mexicana cheese it's a great feast.

    Whoever mentioned copymethat, was it @Brunneria, I totally love it. I have to go back through the recipes to add nutritional info, not a hardship.

    Now looking for a recipe for clafutis. Halloumi is often on the shopping list, oh my goodness I am looking forward to experimenting.

    Thank you all.....!

    The recipe was orininally posted by @Bubbsie in the fbg thread. I haven’t worked out how to share the link as I use the forum app not the website, but it’s easy to find if you search ‘ Blackberry Clafoutis’ and find her post.

    I agree the CopyMeThat app is brilliant isn’t it? I was getting in a real pickle trying to remember where I’d found various recipes beforehand.

    Will let you know - they are round bits of halloumi (nothing else added). Had to leave them in the fridge at work as I decided to do a mega walk home from work yesterday, so will be next week before I try them. Was thinking they’d be nice on top of an ordinary burger.

    Pretty sure the clafoutis recipe is in @shelley262 s recipe booklet that we had in Birmingham. Otherwise, here is a screenshot of the recipe I used (based on @Bubbsie s one) from my food tracker app.

    Bed 4.8 FBG 5.3. Late posting for yesterday. Has the boys most of the day but was mostly packed and ready to go. Just sitting on the train waiting to go at the moment.
    B. 2 Tesco pork chipolatos, slice GF black pudding, mushroom, 3 mini plum tomatoes, fried egg. Tassimo Americano grande with a dash of cream.
    L. A keto creme brulee
    D. Odd combo due to using up leftovers. 4 mini ribs, fresh anchovies and M&S tuna, bean and red onion pot. The last creme brulee with a very good inulin top.
    Didn't expect to spend 1 hr setting up a tablet. No 2 decided to knock my tablet out of No 1's hands so I now have a spider web screen! Thank goodness I had a spare tablet in the house.

    Halloumi Fries: @Goonergal @maglil55
    120g Halloumi
    2 Tbsp Ground Almonds
    1 Tsp Chilli Powder
    1/2 Tsp Paprika
    1 Tbsp Oil
    Method
    Cut halloumi into 'chips' around 8 and pat dry with kitchen towel
    In a bowl combine almonds and spices
    Press each 'chip' into the dry mix until completely coated
    Heat the oil in a frying pan until hot and carefully place the halloumi in, fry until golden brown on all 4 sides (around 3-4 minutes)

    I used 2330gs of Halloumi so doubled the almond mixture...used crushed chillies & some Cajun seasoning...I also dipped the cheese in beaten egg to make sure the coating stuck to the 'chips' had them with some crispy bacon...delicioussssssssssssssssssssssssssssssss...mine were spicy hot...so I added some Greek yoghurt as a dip to cool them down

    Edinburgh is the most beautiful city and I thoroughly enjoyed my brief stay. After the Gallery of Modern Art I walked along the Leith to Stockbridge and Leith. Despite what is written about Scottish food I had no trouble eating LCHF. The coffee was also excellent!

    Good morning all. Wonderful start into the weekend, blue skies and sunny, albeit a bit colder than last week. Also quite elated since blood sugars were back to normal yesterday and today. Yeah!

    Thanks again for all your support, really made feel as if I am not out there fighting this thing alone.

    Didn't post yesterday as I had a late night out. So, here goes:

    Yesterday ...

    Breakfast: Two double decaffeinated espressos with cream and erythritol.

    Early lunch: A DD keto roll with mayonnaise, gouda and beef salami. Lamb's lettuce with low-carb lime-mustard dressing and feta cheese.

    Dinner (out with colleagues): Pumpkin quiche (didn't eat the crust), a mixed salad with olive oil and balsamico. A cheese platter (divided by 4) and half a DD keto roll (gave the other half to a colleague, who has leaky gut syndrome and can't have any regular bread either). Two glasses of red wine with dinner. Another glass later at a piano bar. Enjoyed the evening very much.

    @fran57, @tickorama, and @xfieldok -- Welcome to the thread. Looking forward to your contributions.
    @Bubsie, @Brunneria and @DJC3 -- Thanks for the recipes/links to recipes. Definitely all very tempting.
    @shelley262 -- Hope you get your results soon. Don't fret too much, I am sure they will be brilliant.
    @Goonergal -- Hugs! Saw on the other thread that your fbgs were a bit higher today in spite off hardly having had any carbs yesterday. Very frustrating, there sometimes just seems to be no rhyme nor reason to it. I am sure tomorrow's will be much lower again.
    @maglil55 -- Enjoy your trip to Liverpool and the Terracota Warrior exhibition.
