Can't remember yesterday.
Today:

Brunch - almond flour and fibre pancakes made with egg whites leftover from when I made keto egg yolk pasta the other day. Bacon grilled crispy and zero calories salted caramel syrup - with decaffeinated filter coffee.

Evening meal - home made ham with cabbage followed by rice pudding made with konjac rice, double cream, more salted caramel syrup and a thin slice of lemon and a sprinkling of cinnamon.

Then later - two pots of Hartley's no added sugar jelly orange flavour - 1.5g carbs per pot.

I did 90 minutes of boxing and beat saber for exercise on VR.

Lunch: beef stew (beef and mushrooms) with cauli cheese.
Dinner: slice of keto bread with home made smoked mackerel pate.
Fruit teas throughout including plum and cinnamon which smelt delicious and was very warming. Slightly less impressed with over all taste though- expected more from ' Fortnum and Mason', however it says it is an ' infusion' rather than a tea. Was definitely infused

Slept late yesterday and had Brunch: mushroom soup made with a tin of mushrooms and some double cream and tarragon and a cup of coffee - decaff.

Had Lea at 8-ish: home made burgers made with 20% fat beef mince with French's mustard and gherkins and broccoli.
Mineral water to drink.

Did quite a lot of VR exercise - according to my app used up 200 calories. My blood sugar reading was 5.6 at bedtime.

Pour into saucepan including the water.Heat it up.Chuck some dried parsley and dried tarragon in to your taste (or don't bother) Using a stick blender - once it has heated up blitz it and it turns into quite a thick moosh.
Taste it and add whatever you think will make it taste better - salt, pepper.
At this point I added some double cream and stirred (probably about a tablespoon) and then I added some salted butter as well because there are only 28 calories in it without the cream and butter!!!

And then I ate it :p

Must get some black pudding...
Brunch: chaffle , smoked streaky bacon and skinny maple syrup.
Dinner: spring greens wilted in butter with garlic and mushrooms and halloumi. Ooh plus smoked salmon. Spring greens were delicious- most sceptical as tried this with kale and decided I not like kale.

Fruit teas throughout including English garden yes that did taste like my compost heap smells - earthy!!
Does any one forage and make their own teas?

Yesterday.

Late Breakfast - my experimental keto croissants and decaff coffee.

Evening meal -
roast chicken thighs with a variation of Heavenly Fan's keto chips and pickled gherkins.
I found out that Heinz low sugar ketchup has fewer carbs than the Skinny Syrup ketchup so I use that now and it tastes much better.

I did about fifty minutes of VR exercise - forty minutes of FitXR boxing and ten of Beat Saber.

Yesterday.
Breakfast - three scrambled eggs and a huge mug of decaff coffee.

Lunch - one Tesco dark chocolate biscuit - hubby was having some and I couldn't resist.
It had 8g of carbs in it and I had a cup of coffee with it and ate it very slowly.

Then I did 45 minutes of cardio boxing.

I checked my ketones and I was still in ketosis and my blood sugars were just over 6 - phew.

Evening meal - I made a Chinese takeaway style soup using a chicken Oxo, splash of soya sauce, splash of sesame oil, a snipped spring onion, around five pieces of frozen peppers, five pieces of frozen red onion, five pieces of frozen mushroom, eight pieces of frozen chicken strips, four frozen king prawns, six tiny pieces of frozen broccoli - pour boiling water over it and then microwave on full power for six minutes.

Drinking mineral water all day.
