Brunch: Smoked haddock and scrambled eggs with decaff coffee

Evening meal: Boiled ham with celeriac and sprouts - fizzy water with no sugar lemon squash

Four squares of Montezuma 100% cocoa chocolate

1 mug of cocoa with cream and no carb salted caramel syrup.

It looks like a super 'good' day but my portion control was out of control!! Three pieces of haddock with two eggs and a LOT of boiled ham.

I have started doing some boxing exercises using my VR headset and I plan to do more and more of that every day which shouldn't be difficult as it is so much fun. I managed thirty minutes today without even really trying.

Chicken breast fillet cut into strips, placed in a shallow oven-proof dish, seasoned then covered with a sauce made in a blender from sun-dried tomatoes, single cream, butter, basil leaves, water and lemon juice. 30 minutes in the oven at 180. Served with a selection of fresh veg.

Known as Sacha's Chicken in my wife's recipe book.

I wish I could get addicted to exercise! Better than being addicted to food... :) I luvs how you eat @NotWorriedAtAll I wish I could cook and do stuff.

Tuesday 5th Jan - lost the plot with oversleeping and having to be out asap... good grief.
B: Run out of strips / Nothing till later with rushing out so when I saw a cream horn in the fridge that was it and I then carried on and finished off all the Christmas chocolates and toffees.
L: Once I've gone off the rails I can never get back on track until the next day... I don't know why so my brother at my instruction had a pork and mustart toastie waiting for me when I got in and a Nescafe... plus I finished off Mum's she'd only had a bite of.
D: Large plate of roasted garlic potatoes, 1 fried egg, 1 toast, mayo, brown sauce :oops:

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.

Ever thought about opening a cafe, I would be first in the cue. These pics are making me hungry, your very talented.
