    You had better avoid Barangaroo then, you might give in to temptation! :)

    We could try a diabetic friendly version with Halloumi chips and OPPO icecream. :hungry:

    Dipping in yoghurt... well, it's a dairy theme I guess. So why not ice cream? :)

    Too right @Tophat1900, Particularly if those guidelines have been 'doctored' by Big Food.

    Now I feel cheated.... I ate like that once, maybe not quite that bad, but I never got anything from big food, not even a card.

    Good to hear you are an Aussie, @Tophat1900. The great Aussie dessert, difficult to escape unless you can swim a long way !!

    But they got some of our money and maybe their idea of a reward was those little toys in boxes of cereals !!

    Born and bred. Growing up, dessert was mandatory. My parents still follow that rule. Been along time since I ate ice cream or pavlova or fruit cake with half inch thick layer of icing on top.... :D

    Yeah, same here. Hot weather doesn't help. Ice-cream the excuse to cool you down. Ricotta cheese just does not taste the same!!

    Don't you have any low carb icecream like OPPO in Australia?

    Never seen anything like that here, except ones that are full of sugar alcohols which are also low fat. Yuck!

    I used to make my own, can't remember how or what I did with the recipe. Might have to experiment again now with all this ice cream talk.

    Yeah, Carisma potatoes are the low carb ones I have tried in the past. Cook them, then cool them over night in the fridge and reheat. You can cool and reheat a number of times. Lowers the impact on bg levels. 100g works out at about 10g of carbohydrate.

    We need to get those over here. I have stopped eating chips now.

    Nice tip about cooling and reheating. Does that apply to other foods?

    I had reheated pasta last night - tested after 21/2 hours and my BS was 6.00 which is about normal for me after pasta. Why not test to see what affect potatoes etc have - I tried a jacket potato a couple of weeks ago and my BS was 7.5 after 1 hour and 6.1 after 2 hours. My nemesis though is still Scampi as that puts me up to 9.5 and is still at 8.00 after 3 hours so I have taken that off my menu although may try again in a year or so.

    I didn't like what a jacket potatoe did to my levels either, so if I do eat the low carb ones I use Carissma ones here. Just not a fan of wheat products like bread or pasta. And I found it didn't work so well for me when reheating and cooling pasta, but I try it just to see. @Listlad
