Breakfast: Slice of toasted Livilife with butter - in a hurry, so no protein and felt really hungry mid morning so-
Choc-Ice
Lunch: cottage cheese, salad, mayo. 2 finncrisps with soft cheese and honey
Choc Ice
Supper: Plaice fillet dusted with seeds and a little flour, celeriac oven chips, green salad, glass of wine
Choc Ice !!!

Not a great day - about 100g of carbs, resulting in a 7.1 reading ( no exercise either)
I really should not have bought that box of choc ices, my husband has a tooth problem so isn't eating them, and they just sit there in the freezer shouting 'EAT ME'. I wonder if I can raise the will power to throw them out - probably not, it would be too much of a feeling of waste.

Breakfast: Smoked bacon rashers and a cup of coffee - I was supposed to have an omelette with them but it smelled iffy when I'd cooked it so reluctantly it went into the food bin :(

Lunch or as I call it Lea because it was at 4 o'clock:
Roast pork with crackling and Brussels sprouts and cauliflower and broccoli and Green Jasmine tea to drink.
two hours after eating - 6.9 mmol/L

Evening: I made an egg custard using a pint of whole cream milk and powdered egg and nutmeg and vanilla and erythritol and was planning to make egg custard tart with a coconut flour pastry shell but it got too late and hot to be cooking.

So I used some of the cooled custard and mixed it with whipped double cream and made vanilla ice cream with my new ice cream maker and topped it with crushed salted peanuts and went halfsies with my husband.

evening blood sugar test - 7.3 mmol/L

Well, y'know if I'm not posting then I'm pigging! Stupid is my middle name. :) I can't post when pigging, y'all would be shocked especially as I'm making myself ill on a daily basis, my liver's not going to hold out for much longer I'm sure ie today at 7 I had a chocolate SlimFast shake then I did a few hours hard slog gardening and came in when I felt my blood pressure was badly and my back was gone and just had to have 2 fried eggs (in lard!!!!) over 3 large thick white buttered toasts. See? Oh the shame, oh the stupidity, oh the heck with it!

You'd have been fine with the eggs in lard Ditto - you could have had six of them if you'd wanted - it's the bread that is the problem. I'd stop with the SlimFast if I was you - if you just had a good solid breakfast of fried stuff (no bread) you wouldn't have ended up wanting the bread later. xxx

I had left over roast pork and flatbreads made from almond flour and psyllium for brunch and then for evening meal home made chocolate and peanut ice cream made half from the egg custard I made the other day and half from whipped double cream.

We've run out of cheese so I'm probably going to have corned beef as a snack later with some olives.

Lunch: 6 whole pork chipolatas (0.5g each) and grilled tomatoes; finncrisp with soft cheese and honey
Supper: Roast chicken, gravy, roasted celeriac, cabbage

Breakfast: crustless egg custard tarts and decaff coffee.

Lunch: it looked like a big pile of mud but it was my first attempt at chilli and tasted very nice.

Evening meal: I licked the spoons when making home made butter out of the 3 pots of cream delivered on Saturday with a use by date of tomorrow!!!

It is nice having cream delivered - it is not nice having enough cream delivered to last a week that only lasts three days.

Bad day today.

Started out okay - breakfast - very small amount of soda bread and plenty of butter.

Lunch - ham and cucumber and a tomato and grated mozarella cheese, a teaspoon of Branston pickle and two inches of brie, homemade celeriac salad.

Evening meal - this is where it all went south. Three small pieces of soda bread, a spring onion, more Branston, 2 slices of ham, butter and cheese and pickled onions. I took a metformin for the first time in many months.

Hello @bakebeans
I've been searching for a fairly low carb granola for a while, I'll have a look at this one.
Also well done on your 'daily diary' you really do seem to have got things well under control.
thank you, doesn’t always seem under control but anything is an improvement on what I would eat before.
some Tesco’s sell the granola and have it down to £1.50 at times. Sainsbury’s and Waitrose also sell it at 2.99 a box. It’s really nice Hubby has just started eating it aswell
