    Hi yes clafoutis is in the booklet. I make it frequently. I make a few changes to recipe now using 10 mini loaf tins for portion control and only putting 2 or 3 berries in each one! I also use 10 g of Psyllium Husk and 90 g of ground almonds and sometimes use olive oil rather than melted butter! hope you enjoy them. I am also using them a couple of them in thin slices in a sugar free jelly for a base for a trifle I've concocted using egg custard which is very low carb as the eggs thicken and i make with cream not milk.

    Now then foodie playmates; as you guys may know I'm not a bread/pastry/pizza person, but a couple of Twisted YouTube videos have appeared recently on my Facebook feed, having been shared by theirs in a foodie group I'm in.

    I wondered if some of them, line the Taquitos, or pizza cone dipping thingies, or the cheese steak nachos could work with LoDough, orr other LC wraps or dough.

    I thought little taquitos or the pizza cones would make either fab finger food for drinks parties, parties in general or for those times when "bitty food" is required in front of the box, for whatever reason.

    Evening all. Two meals in a very short space of time today.

    Lunch (3pm) - Lidl deluxe antipasto: Parma ham, salami and coppa. Really hit the spot - worked up a large appetite while shopping (successful purchase of sofa).

    Dinner (6pm) - my favourite. Beef short rib. Delicious.

    @maglil55 hope you are enjoying Liverpool

    @Bubbsie thanks for the recipe. Bought halloumi and streaky bacon today. Looks like paprika might need to be picked up tomorrow (chilli would be a step too far for me)

    @ziggy_w thanks for your concern. BG a bit more sensible this afternoon. Glad you have sorted yours out.

    @DJC3 hope you enjoyed your doggy day. Thought of you as I passed through Canning Town.

    I certainly don’t see too much fat in there. Do you know the breakdown between fat, protein and carbs in everything you ate? What are you aiming for? I find that too much protein increases BG a bit, but not everyone does. Today I’ve had 82.8g fat (a bit on the low side for me), 1.6g carbs and 67.1g protein (just about my sweet spot for protein). I aim to be in ketosis so that works well for me - all depends what you are trying to achieve.

    Personally it’d be the carbs I’d look at in there, but it all depends on what you’re aiming for and how your sugar levels are. Nothing stands out as a concern. If you’re enjoying what you’re eating and getting the results you want would just keep going.

    Hello all.

    Today ...

    Breakfast: Two double decaffeinated espressos with cream and erythritol.

    Lunch: A DD keto roll with mayonnaise, gouda and beef salami. The last of the leftover soup -- it seems it gets better the more often it is reheated.

    Snack: About 4 squares of 85% chocolate.

    Dinner: About 80g of liver pate. Two zucchinis and one smallish eggplant cut into sticks and roasted with olive oil and salt.

    Evening all - loved being in shorts and polo shirt again today. As a public service I should warn all you ladies of a baffling illness sweeping this area. Loss of voice, lethargy and partial hearing loss. UNTIL you sense dishwasher being loaded - then you can move like Usain Bolt and whinge loudly about how the thing is loaded, plus hear softy spoken, 2 rooms away, "amazing recovery" :arghh::arghh:

    Breakfast: Tea
    Dockey : Tea
    Lunch : Cold chicken leg (lemon and thyme); 5 of our lack cherry tomatoes; 4 walnuts; 3 flaxseed crackers with h/m smoked salmon pate (heather and peat smoked salmon, cream cheese, double cream) 2 slices prosciutto; gruyere; filter coffee with Jersey double cream - too much sat fat in there and 5.2 @ 2 hrs does not offset that IMHO (I was walking her dogs when Mrs P made the pate )
    Mid Afternoon: Tea
    Evening meal: Big salad with tin of mackerel in olive oil and avocado; parmesan shavings; lots of chia seeds and psyllium husk powder - like to keep things regular

    Sad day today and a bit reflective as my cousin died this morning - always difficult living so far away can’t give the same support to family as would like to give but visiting mum in a weeks time for a week for hospital visits etc so not rushing up this week also don’t know when funeral will take place.
    Breakfast sausage, quarter piece of lodough eggy bread and fried egg
    Lunch tin of red salmon with acv and olive oil with lc seeded crispbreads
    Dinner chicken curry with mint raita and glass red wine followed by Lc trifle
    @fran57 your fats were only high because of two tins of mackerel in olive oil but it’s good fat and try not to worry. Main change I would hav3 made is having something like omlette or bacon and egg instead of porridge and full fat hummus with olive oil rather than low fat but it’s a personal choice and you need to experiment. Did you take your blood readings after the porridge? Mine would have been sky high but maybe you don’t react as much? Good luck you’re doing great I did the low carb programme and slowly reduced my carbs down to 20g per day but now I’m on maintenance I eat under 30g per day
    @Goonergal and @ziggy_w pleased you’re both returning to your normal bgs - it’s weird how it goes often no rhyme or reason we can all just keep trying and getting results most of the time.
