I bung mine into a loaf tin and cook for about 1.5 hours covered and then a final 10 or so minutes uncovered. I love it with sriracha mayo - mayo and chilli sauce mixed together

@adrian1der - sounds good to me - I am addicted to sriracha - mmmmm - but can only have little bits at a time thankfully because of the spice :p

Thanks to you I have bought the Tom Kerridge Dopamine Diet book but have still to experiment - I am sure it will be great! So thanks for the tip.

Monday
No Brekky
Lunch: Ham, coleslaw and lettuce sandwich on 2 slices of Nimble
Dinner: Invited out to a friends' house for dinner where she served a variety of Indian dishes (she is from Pakistan), including potato and chicken curry, a spiced beetroot dish, a spicy cabbage dish, dahl and of course rice (I only had a tbs), Mango ice-cream then cheese and biscuits.

Tuesday
No brekkie
Lunch: Bacon and egg in a seeded roll (25g carb in the roll, bolussed for 30g to include the protein)
Dinner: High meat content sausages (1g carb each), mashed potato half and half with mashed cauli, broccoli and stringless beans.

Wednesday
No Brekky
Lunch: Salad with black forest cured ham, boiled ham, potato salad, lettuce with blue cheese dressing, small spoonful cous cous, cucumber, tomatoes, coleslaw.
Dinner: Meant to have a Thai curry, but got distracted when friends called in for a drink, so ended up with cheeses and cold meats accompanied by 3 rather nice slices from a "bake it yourself" Ciabatta.

Whatever I have been doing I seem to have got it right as I have been 95% time in range over the 3 days. No doubt I have shot myself in the foot by saying that and all will change!

B. Fibre drink with psyllium, chia seeds and vinegar (balsamic and ACV) I stopped taking this last week and my physical and mental health deteriorated, so I am really happy to be back into this routine.
Coffee with butter as I am out of both milk and cream and can't drink it black.... Trip to the shops on the cards for this afternoon as I'm also out of cheese and olives!!
Creamy Greek natural yoghurt with sour cherries, seeds, cinnamon and a sprinkle of Eat Natural Protein (Low Carb) Granola

L. Cup of Red Bush (also with butter o_O) 2 sesame Ryvita with butter and marmite. Square of 85%dark choc with 2 spoons of peanut butter and a chunk of cheese.

D. 2 lamb steaks (I was really craving meat yesterday and they needed using up) with almost a whole head of broccoli with sour cream and chive dip and a small portion of ratatouille with halloumi washed down with far too much alcohol (rum, gin and port :eek:.... not all in the same glass) I have had a few difficult days mentally recently and needed a blow out.
Apologies to those who suffer hangovers because I feel great this morning, like a dark cloud has been lifted and all things are possible again.... I also really enjoyed my food and drink last night, even if I did over indulge "a bit" (read "A LOT"!) Yikes!:rolleyes:
