Yesterday I had:-

Usual glass of water with a dash of ACV followed by a coffee with cream to start the day

B. 40g Eat Natural low sugar granola (14g carbs) with mixed seeds, 2 dessert spoons of stewed plums, 2 chopped strawberries and 2 good dollops of creamy Greek natural yoghurt. Total approx. 30g carbs needing 3 units of NovoRapid injected 40 mins in advance of eating. Didn't need to bolus for DP which seems to be due to increased exercise the previous day.

No lunch but I had to have 3 pieces of dried fruit (half a pear, an apricot and a prune) to keep me from going too low after exercise.

D. Chicken stir fry with Bare Naked Noodles.... no real carbs just what was in the veg so I had to bolus a unit for the protein afterwards, followed by a Lidl Raspberry Trifle (22g carbs)... so 3 units NovoRapid in total.

I haven't had a cheese and onion sandwich in ages! Must get some extra mature cheddar in! Not actually sure if I like radishes, will need to get some and see, as for the orange, shove that! lol, I got fed up of them when I was about 14 and stealing fags off my dad to go to the woods and smoke as I'd take oranges and eat them to try and get rid of the smell off my breath! haha xx

what are these Kerry? They sound nice! xx
It's a recipe I found it uses almond flour, cocoa powder, granulated sweetener, baking powder and water :) I say cookie Bites cause I rolled them into little balls before baking. Also topped some with dessicated coconut before baking so it Toasted in the oven xx

I'm a late joiner to this topic but I'm already learning, I see many use Burgen bread I need to google this as I mostly use a Danish white [hiss boo] loaf as it has only about 11 carbs per slice. Occasionally I will have Brown but that is 16 carbs per slice but poached eggs love it. :p
Typical day is
Bfast -- 1 Weetabix, coffee total carbs 15.
Lunch -- Ham and tomato sandwich on 2 x white bread slices, Pkt crisps, Fruit fool pot total carbs 49.
Dinner -- Sausage & veg mash plus green beans, choc ice total carbs 25 if It's potato mash then add another 12 carbs to the total ie 37.
The individual carbs are a good average of my daily carb intake. I do have some in-between nibbles which my meal time calculations take into account when reading my BG.

Some times I'm not a goody 2-shoes and have to give myself an insulin correction dose which between my Pump and Free style libre sensor it's easy peasy.

My weekly levels are 70%+ in range between 4 - 10

Always start the day with a glass of water with a dash of ACV followed by a cup of coffee with cream.

Same breakfast as previous few days ie 40g Eat Natural Low Sugar granola (14g carbs) with mixed seeds, 2 dessert spoons of stewed plums with sweetener, a couple of small chopped strawberries and two large dollops of creamy Greek natural yoghurt.... Approx 30g carbs total. Used 3 units of NR bolussed 30 mins in advance of eating.

Glass of water at lunchtime with a few Brazil nuts and a square of Dark 70% chocolate with a spoon of peanut butter.

Dinner:- Ate a few olives whilst preparing meal of roast chicken with 3 small pieces of sweet potato, runner beans from the garden and cabbage sweated in butter with a dollop of cream cheese mixed in to serve. Used 3 units of NR and injected just before I started eating due to fat content. Dropped a bit low 45 mins later and had a stem ginger shortbread biscuit (10g) to bring me back up.
Might have been a better idea to inject after eating.... but another factor is that I also went for a brisk walk whilst chicken was in the oven so that may have caused me to drop low after dinner. Stayed in range all night though.

My regular breakfast is one Weetabix with a shot of chia seeds, around 80g of chopped strawberries and around 70ml of single cream but I'm always struggling to keep my daily saturated fat intake under the RDI of 30g and cream is a big chunk of that, so yesterday I tried it with Kefir fermented yogurt instead, which has a tenth of the saturated fat. Kefir has a sharper taste than single cream but I think I can get used to it and the switch has resulted in my overall saturated fat intake for the day being below 30g for two days in a row without dropping anything else from my regular diet. Result, then..!
