Well yesterday was interesting as I am starting to experiment with food and cooking a bit more.

Panko Prawn Croquettes.

Never tried them before. Reasonably easy to make. Subtly tasty. Very filling. Low Carbs. A bit higher in Cals.

The mushrooms really finished them off well.

Each croquet is 50g weight. 108 Calories. 4.8g Carbs.

I could only eat 3 of them before I was full and felt that way (satisfied) for hours afterwards.

if anyone wants the recipe then please just ask however, it is the BBC and Rick Steins video on the internet that you need to see.

Had one shake for breakfast. Not had lunch but supper is likely to be a mix of sirloin steak (which I'll slice and stir fry I think) and cauliflower rice which I'll heavily season and chuck an egg into as well.

Thanks :)

At the start of the lockdown last year I didn't cook, but now I love it and cook everyday. Yesterday I did some (non-diabetic) damson jam with fruit from the orchard, lemon and mustard seed chutney, and cinnamon spiced damson and almond crumble for the family dessert. Still learning to bake cakes and haven't tried laminated breads yet although currently working on jams, pickles and chutneys

Have you considered trying to make diabetic jams? Would involve a fair amount of experimentation with the sugar replacements I'd think.

Fortunately I don't have a sweet tooth so don't miss sweet things. My wife finds it really amusing that I never have dessert and always go for the cheese board. I did before diagnosis as well

I don't have a sweet tooth either, people are always offering me cake, yuck, but potatoes I can eat till they're coming out of my ears. :rolleyes:

Cannot get a handle on life or eating. Will have another go today. 68 years of experience, you'd think I'd know what I was doing by now!

Waited from 1 till midnight for an ambulance for Mum. Luckily not urgent as they never did show up. Very unsettling. Have a good eating day all. :) I will try my hardest today, hoping to stick to SlimFast for the rest of the day.

Do you do the various replacements like celeriac, cauli etc? My wife prefers celeriac puree to mash potatoes and my son loves the almond soda bread (he calls it cake bread!)

I'm trying a new one tonight - celeriac spaghetti. I usually spiralize courgettes. I'll let you know how it goes :)

@adrian1der . Have you tried cake in a mug recipies? I tried a lemon cheese cake yesterday (no lemon in the recipe!!!) See the internet for varied recipes to cook in the microwave. Low carb, keto, and ordinary . Yum. I added poring cream , and a sprinkling of mixed cocoa powder, seeds, and milled nuts. Yum
