@Ditto nae point in me doing it as it's the same menu every week
xx

Same here, except that I had some red meat the other day - first time in weeks! A rump steak with broccolini. I started out thinking it was like tarted-up roadkill on a plate, then found myself enjoying it, and then later felt like I had in fact eaten roadkill :)

I don't because I am not part of the ultra low carb brigade, I don't do the substitution of foods,or the high fat.

@NotWorriedAtAll I was a bit sneaky lol after seeing your recipe for Keto Bread. Made some on Saturday and came out fantastic and very tasty, so tasty in fact that having to make some more today (Not me being greedy :D , OH just been diagnosed and non diabetic household member enjoyed it too). So thanks very much.
Couple of questions: Which do you think is the best artificial sweetener to use in baking?
I really miss afternoon teas with the family, so you have given me hope that this can again be an occasional treat. Have you got a recipe for scones?
Thank you again for the inspiration and hope :D

I'm not part of the ultra low carb brigade either but still partake, also when it was started there was more high carb foods than anything else mentioned xx

I know as I think I might have participated back then. Like used with the fasting bloods but stopped when I got told off for going off topic, though that too is more off topic now with general chat included.

Wonder if I could take ordinary paracetomol. I never take painkillers normally, under any circumstances but this toothache is dire.
I take paracetamol when needed, in fact I've just taken 2 as I've got a painful shoulder. Have you spoken to your dentist? I hope the pain recedes soon.

Yesterday
Tea
B: Boiled eggs, tea.
Tea
L: Chicken butty, large plum, tea.

Red bush tea.

Not been online, been miserable as sin, woke up from a doze with my hand badly again, it's not been badly for years since an injection acted like a miracle and made it better, now I've only the one working hand really and pushing Mum to the loo in her chair is no easy feat, she weighs a ton! Also, my toothache has come back, absolute agony but it fades away every so often or I'd go crazy. I think everything is made worse if you are diabetic. I looked at Ibubrofen tablets but pkt said don't take if diabetic or liver trouble, good grief. Wonder if I could take ordinary paracetomol. I never take painkillers normally, under any circumstances but this toothache is dire.

Breakfast: Pt Water with spoonful of Fibre / A Nescafe made with whole milk and one sweetener, 2 fried eggs on 2 toasts / Pt Water with Meds inc. Aspirin.
Lunch: Chinese left-overs which made me quite ill, why am I such a numpty? I had volcanic indigestion after.
Dinner: 1 lg tin Tomatoes, 2 fried eggs on 2 toasts / Can't remember if I drank all my water, everything goes to the dogs if I don't keep to my routine...

Enjoyed reading your posts. I like to see how normal peoples eat. :D

Teeth are the worst! Can you get to a dentist?

Hello @Ditto - not surprised that you felt miserable with all that going on.
Diabetes doesn't need to stop you taking paracetamol - I've been told to take them by both GP and dentist previously, and you will certainly need it if you have tooth ache.
Can you put helping yourself to the top of the list and try to get to a dentist, and maybe some GP help as well to sort out that hand.
Very difficult to stick to routine with all this going on, but if you can it will be a big help in making you feel a bit better, and you know that you can do it - you already have!

So - here's what I ate yesterday.
Breakfast: Egg on Livilife toast
Lunch: Large salad with mayo and slice of corned beef, strawberries and yoghurt
Supper: Turkey escallops with vegetable stir fry and cauli-rice.

@Ditto I'd suggest you at least call your pharmacist to enquire about the use of paracetamol in your case with your fatty liver as paracetamol too can cause liver issues xx

@Ditto why don't you try making it with unsweetened almond milk to eliminate the extra carbs from the whole milk? xx

@freesia I've never tried celeriac chips but would be willing to give them a go, everything else on the menu apart from the olives I'd munch fine :) xx

@Kaylz, celeriac is really low carb, only 2g per 100. I use it loads, for topping on cottage pie (mixed with cheese, butter and pepper) and instead of chips (i cut them into chip shapes and put them in the oven. The only thing i find is that you need to add flavour to it so i use some spray oil and sprinkle on herbs or spices. I only have takeaway chips now as a big treat.
Tonight i'm attempting to cook my first fresh tuna steak!
