no mince with mushrooms, spring onions and garlic granules is cooked in the morning (with oxo) and then when it's reheated at tea time the egg is just dropped in to cook through xx

Stuffed Pepper.

Pepper, cut in half, filled with pan-fried turkey mince, chopped tomatoes, garlic and mushrooms and topped with grated mozzarella, then roasted. Served with green beans, courgette and cauli. Well under 20g carb, delicious and filling and a 5.6 post-prandial.

Breakfast - 2 hard boiled eggs (meant to be soft boiled but it went wrong) and a cup of frothy hot chocolate

Lunch - frothy coffee (now I've dug my frother out I am going to use the heck out of it) and tinned ham with low carb ketchup.

Evening meal - I made keto stuffed crust pizza with frankfurters in the crust which I made using yeast, baking powder and a mix of fibre 'flours' and almond and coconut flour and xanthan gum.

Yesterday: my favourite chicken soup.

Roast some skinless chicken thighs with herbs and a splash of olive oil and seasoning in the oven for about 35 minutes.
Meanwhile, chop 2 med leeks, 2 med corgette, 1 carrot and gently cook in some olive oil while thighs are roasting. When the veggies are softened and the thighs are ready, pour the chicken juices into the soup pot with a chicken stock cube. Add a big bunch of kale and simmer until ready. I use about half a bag because it cooks down. The soup lasts me about three days and I use the chicken thighs for sandwiches, salads etc or chop a couple and add them to the soup. The juices from the cooked thighs makes all the difference to taste - stock cubes don't quite get there:)

Roasted veg - peppers, red onion, corgettes in harissa with falafels and coriander and mint yoghurt sauce.

... Trying to get back on track after a very bad Christmas diet:)

You are very kind. My son used to say this all the time. My nerves wouldn't stand it sadly. I am so over cautious I worry about poisoning people to the point it is pretty close to OCD and I'm not using that term lightly. I did once fantasise about having a cafe when I was in my twenties. I had visions of decorating it with astro turf on the ground and furnishing it with wooden benches and plastic trees (before I knew about plastic being bad) having picnic areas with tablecloths and calling it the Teddy Bears' Picnic!! :D

Lol Teddy Bears Picnic! :D That would have been really popular with the kiddies (and me).

Lost the plot today but yesterday was interesting. Pigged out but on 'good stuff' and lost weight. All that food yet lost! Just shows you. Why can't I be consistent though? Why can't I be normal and just have three meals a day. I don't think I've ever been normal with food. In fact I haven't.

Wednesday 6th Jan - Epiphany. Weight 14stones 13.2pounds Tum <50 1/2

B: Run out of strips / pint water / 2 hard boiled eggs / pint water with meds
Snack: large can tuna
L: pint water / 2 hard boiled eggs with salt and mayo
D: large sirloin steak and a packet of those small mushrooms / pint water
Supper: 3 rashers bacon, 2 fried eggs, 3 fried tomatoes mmm oink

I think you should stop trying to eat three meals a day. If it isn't natural for you then work with what is natural for you.
To be honest I have days when I scoff all day long (probably like your day yesterday) but I stick to no carb/low carb naughty food and even if i don't lose weight - I certainly don't gain and my blood sugars etc are ok.

My piggy eating stuff when I can't be bothered to cook and I've lost the ability to think straight:
packs of porky scratchings - I check the labels and buy the ones with almost no carbs in them - some have cereals in them and are quite high so I avoid them.
Cheese strings - they have vitamin D added to them so I count them as 'medicine food.'
Dark chocolate powder (Dr Oetker from Tesco is only 8.9g per 100g so one teaspoon is nearly nothing) mixed with double cream and a squirt of zero calories syrup or some vanilla pod ground and a bit of erythritol - stir it up and it goes thick like a mousse and I eat it with a spoon.
Salami slices in packs from Tesco - I have been known to eat the entire pack and then eat a pepperami as well.
Pepperamis.
Tesco cheapo (Creamfields) Brie - only 79p for 200g - I've eaten a whole one with a cup of coffee for breakfast before now - completely piggy but only 2g carbs in the entire thing!!
When I absolutely must have something warm/hot but I have no cooking mojo I keep frozen chopped (well snipped with a scissors) spring onions, cooked sliced chicken (Tesco £2.50 for a 340g pack) and sliced ginger and mixed peppers and mushrooms slices and chopped red onion in the freezer and chuck some of each together into a microwaveable plastic bowl - throw in a chicken oxo and a splash of sesame oil and soya sauce and top with hot water from the kettle and bung in a microwave for 3- 4 minutes and hey presto - Chinese takeaway soup. If you buy Konjac noodles (also Tesco) and add a pack to that - it is enough to make you feel creaking full and there's only 20 calories in the noodles
The beauty of this is the only washing up is the bowl and the spoon.

yesterday

Brunch:
black caffeinated coffee frothed no syrup.
Big chunk of cheddar cheese.

Evening meal:
Roast duck with sprouts and giblet gravy.

Evening snack:
hot chocolate made with cream and zero calorie syrup and a home made coconut rum truffle.

All I've been eating today are home made rum truffles!! Not great because my bloods are up to 7.5 which is high for me these days. Shopping due to be delivered at three and then I can start having sensible food again. I think I will make myself a bowl of soup to keep me tided over until then.
