    5.4 this morning. Tried out the Keto King low carb bread (2.2gms carbs per slice) that someone mentioned on another thread, I found it really flavoursome. It reminded me of the brown bread I used to eat as a kid. Trouble is hubby likes it better than the bread he eats so I'm going to have to share.:( Guess it will be toast for breakfast this morning then.:) https://ketorecipesuk.com/keto-king-bread-bread-maker-version/

    BG of 5.3 this morning. Suppose that will be the insulin kicking in. Must be a shock to my system actually getting some of the real stuff. :))

    6.2 this morning. Thought it would have been higher though because I went out for a meal last night, so pleased it's still in range.
