    Another alternative widely available is
    Likely the beans I miss them! There are some good sausages Waitrose 1 and I think Sainsburys Taste the Difference pack of 12 are same recipe they are 1.1g carbs per sausage and very nice. Do you like fried mushrooms they are nice addition. When on hols I have s rambled egg, fried mushrooms and 1 tomato as a treat brekkie.

    7.6 this morning. Had my pneumoccoccol vaccine yesterday, on top of feeling a bit under the weather. It has absolutely knocked me for six so not surprised.

    No they don’t, I thought they would when I first started , but they always seem to rise by about 1.2-1.3 after running.

    I always run having fasted overnight ,

    I was 6.4 at 0300 , 6.9 at 0800 and 8.2 after 3.6k this morning as an example.
