Yesterday:
Breakfast
- chaffles and blob of extra thick cream and skinny syrup.
Coffee to drink.

Lunch - roast duck and broccoli.

Evening - more roast duck

It was the day before the shopping gets delivered (today) and I needed to clear some space in the freezer and so thawed the duck and roasted it and hubby isn't all that keen on duck so it was my duty to use it up. Plus shopping day is stressful and time consuming (all that Dettol and wiping and spraying and emptying into containers) so it is a good thing to have something cooked I can just eat. At least it wasn't salami and pepperami today so although high fat - not processed foods and I stayed in keto.

I finished it today. I like duck but I don't think I will want it again for quite a while.

Brunch: 2 eggs, 2 bacon, 1 sliced avocado.

Left the avocado. I think I don't like it in its natural state, mushed like guacamole is palatable!

Dinner: satay chicken kebabs on egg fried spring greens.

Fruit teas throughout

I don't like avocado on its own and sliced. But slathered in lemon juice and sprinkled with salt!!! and/or with a decent mayonnaise mixed with garlic and herbs. Then I love it.

today:

Breakfast: I experimented with a different way to make croissants - they turned out less like croissants and very cheesy but still yummy.

I had one with no added sugar tomato ketchup and a mug of decaff coffee for breakfast.

Lunch I had two of them with another cup of coffee.

Evening meal I shared a steak with my husband and I had a tin of mushrooms in sesame oil with garlic and parsley and dill and a huge glass of sparkling water.

Did an hour of punching things and tried a dance workout which was painfully embarrassing but good exercise.

Not heard of the "Gruntled" pork scratchings and as an officianado of that product I clearly need to look out for them. Can't imagine salt and vinegar flavour on them but always interested to give something new a go. They are my guilty pleasure... I visited B&M stores the other day to stock up on them so I am good for a couple of weeks now.
