Breakfast....
Fasting reading 5.0 3.5units of Fiasp (2.5 for breakfast and 1 for DP)
Glass of water with a dash of balsamic vinegar and a dash of diet cola to which a teaspn. of psyllium husk and a teaspn of chia seeds is added and stirred and then just as it is starting to coagulate, I drink it followed by a glass of water.... Sounds weird I know but actually tastes quite nice and it is really helping with my digestive system.
Cup of coffee with cream
2 good dollops of natural creamy Greek yoghurt (Lidl Milbona brand) with a few defrosted frozen summer berries (Lidl... about 2 dessert spoons of the defrosted mush) and mixed seeds (Lidl) with a sprinkle of (Lidl) luxury Nutty granola on the top.
(approx. 25g carbs)

Lunch
BG 8.4 No bolus as I was going to be doing physical work all afternoon.
Couple of handfuls of roasted and salted peanuts.
(approx. 10g carbs).

Tea
BG 7.4 2.5units of Fiasp. (including 1unit correction)
Glass of water
Nice chunk of Gorgonzola (piccante) cheese (Lidl.) it was heavenly!! With a small glass of rose wine followed by another handful of nuts and a cup of Earl Grey tea with milk.
(approx. 10g carbs)

Supper
BG 5.4 No bolus insulin as just back from evening exercise
Fillet steak (rare) with a large plate of salad leaves cucumber, a little grated carrot and 3 cherry tomatoes and a big dollop of cheese coleslaw. (Approx. 10g carbs) Really enjoyed this!
Followed by a weak Options hot chocolate with a little coffee and cream added to beef it up flavour wise and if I am going to be honest, a little shot of spiced rum too (approx. 10g carbs) (Also really enjoyed this!)

Total for the day about 65g carbs.... 6units of bolus insulin and 15.5units of Levemir.

Checking in to celebrate beginning of the blackberry season here in Oz. Yum!

So my daily eating is pretty much unchanged since last time I posted here several months ago ... except blackberries.

B: Extra-big soy flat white + 30g chia seeds. Bowl with 5 sliced strawberries, 10 walnut halves, broken up slice of pumpernickel + juice of half a lemon.

L: Medium soy flat white + 30g chia seeds. 125g fresh blackberries + juice of half a lemon.

Grazing: Lots of almonds. A carrot. A dry ryvita.

D: Bowl with 100g edamame, one avocado, leaves, sugar snap peas, half a pear, one date, 15g pomegranate arils, juice of one lemon.

Walking ~14K steps. Calories in ~= calories out ~= 2,500.

I'm not going to hit my goal of averaging 12,500 steps per dayfor the year. It'll land at around 12,400. No big deal, of course, but it sets up a good NY resolution.

So pleased that you enjoyed it and that you have expanded your menu with another item. Lidl coleslaw is the best I have tasted anywhere, but that is just my personal opinion. Hopefully your Mam will manage to get some and you will think so too. X

Does anyone intend to have a sensible Christmas Day meal? I’m just wondering how much Novarapid I’m going to need. I’m telling my diabetes the Government says we can ignore rules for 5 days!!

Afraid I am a Bah Humbug and not doing Christmas this year. Might have a big plate of cabbage and bacon which I really like. I do have a box of mince pies that will go mouldy if I don't eat them so I might have one of those for afters with 4.5 units of Fiasp.

I've eaten coleslaw since I was diagnosed, just not for a while, Lidl's one will at least be easier to obtain and by far cheaper! xx
