@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!
I'll have to see if I can get hold of one and give it a try, good luck! I've never had fresh tuna myself xx

Have you tried the crunchy peanut butter yet?x
No I haven't, I have 3 jars of Lidl smooth stuff to use first as they were bought first, the amount I'm getting through it won't be long before I get to the crunchy stuff though! xx

@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
That makes me so happy :D
I made a loaf using a different recipe yesterday which isn't so great and it came out looking like a certain US president!!! Which was startling to say the least!

I have made scones. I will have to look for my recipe. They were using the cheese and almond flour and psyllium husk type recipe but I will have to see if I can do a better version using vital wheat gluten as baking seems to be so much better using that ingredient.

I prefer erythritol as a sweetener for everything but it usually comes quite granular so for some recipes I use a pestle and mortar to grind it into powder - I think you could use a blender to get the same result the same way as you'd turn granulated sugar into caster and then icing sugar. Sometimes I use xylitol but it has an effect on my blood sugars when erythritol doesn't and xylitol is poisonous to dogs (not that I have a dog) so dog owners need to be careful if it is in the house or if their dogs sneak food.

@Kaylz, the tuna was lovely. Firm texture, fishy taste. Very nice. Had it with hasselback potatoes and veg. X

That sounds good. I don't generally like peanut butter but in porridge I'm sure I would.

Not eating much. Not so much due to tooth as I can chomp on the other side, more because I feel poorly all over. I go dentist tomorrow. I hate olives they're horrid but luv peanut butter. Today I had a bit of left-over Chinese and for dinner some spag bog. Didn't want any of it really.

I hate food. It's the bane of my life. Last night, feeling like death, but making an effort, I made my Mum her tea and when I presented it to her on her little table she said "Oh hell." o_O I know I'm not much of a cook but good grief.
If you don't want it why not give it a miss.

Hello @Ditto, sorry to hear you are feeling so poorly, hope the visit to the dentist starts to improve things for you -- and I'm sure that your Mum appreciates what you do really!! - It's just that they have a strange way of showing it sometimes, I know mine certainly did.

So ... back to the main message line:
Breakfast: Egg, tomato and turkey rasher
Lunch: Prawn and cucumber sandwich made with LiveLife bread
Supper: Sausage and mash : 3 Heck pork sausages (less than 1g carb each), cauliflower mash, home made tomato 'sauce'
Morning reading 5.6

I caved in to my bod demanding a carby noodle bolus ...

B: My usual bowl with 5 strawberries + 10 walnut halves + 35g of pumpernickel + juice of half a lemon. Extra large soy flat white + 30g chia seeds.

L: Not-my-usual chicken pho (ie Vietnamese soup with chicken/rice noodles/bean sprouts/coriander). Rice noodles give my pancreas a real work-out - I tested an hour after eating and I was 8.5, up from 5-something. NBD and plenty of non-diabetics would see the same, but quite a lot higher than I'm used to and I could *feel* it - all jangly. Plus about twice my usual daily sodium intake, all by itself.

A: Soy flat white + 30g chia seeds.

D: My boring-yummy-usual bowl with 60g edamame, leaves, snowpeas, one avocado, couple of dates torn up, 30g pomegranate arils, half a pear sliced, juice of one lemon.

Random munching: a carrot; almonds.

Walking: lazy 11k steps.
