Hey guys so When my fiancée and I went out we grabbed lunch , I accidentally grabs a sausage roll , I didn’t eat the pastry as my ibs would of hated me for it . Can the sausage meat make your bgs go up ??? And how many carbs does it have ??? I’m currently waiting for my bg to come in the mail and I really wanted a small treat . It does have a salad with it aswell if that helps . Ehhhhhhhhh. I don’t ever eat sausage rolls like ever and I wanted one .

Well - were it a UK sausage roll, virtually no carbs at all if you don't eat the pastry, but haven't a clue whether Australian ones are made the same as UK ones.

I hope it doesn’t have carbs but I’m not sure , I know it had veggies in it and that’s about it . I didn’t add any sauce to it or anything an as I said I had a salad with it . But I’m praying it was an okay treat to have , I don’t ever have that kind of food like ever just today I felt like one :/ other then that I’m pretty good with my other food choices since being on low carb .

There wouldn't be any veg in a UK sausage roll - the filling should be 100% sausage meat (hence 100% protein and fat) encased in flaky pastry (more fat plus the carbs in the flour in the pastry) and then baked to cook.

Here in Australia you can get different type of sausage rolls cheese and bacon , veggies or normal and the pastry is usually puff pastry then cooked in the oven .

I doubt you’d find 100% pure meat sausagemeat in a bog standard sausage roll, most sausagemeat in the UK has cereal filler added in, the cheaper the product, the more cereal they use. Even our butcher's high quality sausages are only 85% meat, which means 15% of them is carb. A couple weigh about 100g, so that’s 15g of carb, which for me enough to need 1.5 units of insulin!

Sausagemeat varies hugely in carbs! Asda's has 9.5g carbs per 100g whereas Tesco's Finest barely had anything (although recipe must've changed as it's now around the same apparently!) so not quite sure why you'd think a shop bought sausagemeat wouldn't have much carbs xx

No, you just encountered something you’d not had to consider before, and now you have, you’ll know for next time.
Normally im extremely careful no matter what but I don’t know today I just wanted a sausage roll with no pastry but didn’t realise how many carbs it had in it . But I was good for dinner tonight . Defianetly will not do it again that’s for sure

I’m not from the uk hun , normally I’m super duper good with everything , just today I don’t know why I just wanted a sausage roll without puff pastry . Of course there’s carbs in sausage meat just didn’t realise how many , it’s not something I would think about all the time . I just added a salad with it probably didn’t make a difference but still I won’t end up having it again .

I know, I was just wondering why TW thought there would be pretty much no carbs in it. if your not testing then you can't say it was a wrong choice hun, you may have tolerated it so don't worry yourself over it xx

Oh sorry hun x , unfortnately I’m waiting for my test meter after been told by my nurse and doctor I don’t need it hence why it took me ages but when I spoke to my specialist she insisted that I need one despite which type I am for my own state of mind . Well I’m currently on Merform 1 a day with food 500mg slow release and she just added another one where I take it once a week to do with sugar levels and weight . So im going to be good for the rest of the of time. X

When I was in Perth (33 years) it was a standing joke that meat pies and sausauge rolls were referred to as "hoof and udder pies" or chicken pies as "beak and feet pies" until about 2005 when legislation was enacted to mandate a much higher percentage of meat in the Aussie pie. :eek:

I'd say don't worry about it Jacinta, it's a marathon not the 100m. The odd indiscretion makes life worth living, its when it becomes a habit you ought to panic.

Although, if you love a savoury, as I do unfortunately, I've found a good quality pork pie, perhaps one imported from the UK under our new trade deal, from Molton Mowbray, tends to spike the sugars less. The fat slows down the spike.

You know barfly , I’m in Victoria and I have never head of that at all , I always thought it was mostly meat to be honest . That’s very shocking and I didn’t even realise what type of fillers were in the pies at all . Never thought of it that way before 2005 to be honest .

Hey blue army , Thankyou for that I feel less guilty about it now . I rarely go for that type of thing and I’m always good , but I 100% agree with you with the odd indiscretion is alright as long as it’s not all the time ; which I know it won’t be . I do love savoury , if possibly that may be a once in a blue moon treat (not all the time ) . I suppose like my nurse said also if you fall off the ban wagon just get back up on it and go back to being good otherwise you will binge appranetly . I was good for dinner , I did pork steak and veggies (non starch veggies) . And I was good for breakfast as I had Greek yoghurt (lactose free cause of ibs issues) and berries plus raw pumpkin seeds for crunch . being low carb has helped me quit cravings and I can comfortably go to the supermarket and walk down each aisle without grabbing the bad foods or the bakery bread or any of the goodies , if anything I grab pork scratchings or baby bel cheese or hummus / avocado dip and have that with celery or bell pepper sticks or canned tuna in water .

No worries. Don’t forget to check the labels on the so called healthy greek yoghurts. I was buying fat free ones and then ditched them after realising they pump them with sugar to compensate for the loss of fat. Never tried a lactose free one mind you.

Sounds like you really are doing well @Jacinta (Australian) It still surprises me that my trips to the supermarket don't cause me any upset/cravings anymore and I can walk past the bakery aisle or sweets aisle and not be tempted to buy that stuff anymore. I get really upset though if they don't have my favourite cheese or Greek yoghurt or olive selection or peppadew peppers stuffed with feta or double cream as has happened recently. Lidl need to pull their socks up as I am not happy having to visit 2 supermarkets to get what I need.

Oh yes I check labels but I’ll defiantly recheck them again tomorrow before breakfast. Lactose free one isn’t to bad , compared to the normal Greek yoghurt . Normal Greek yoghurt has a slight creamier texture where lactose tolerant one is slightly not . It comes down to what you like really .
