Hi all day three nearly over. Found it easier to drink the water, bought a 1litre bottle and going to keep refilling it,
B bacon, egg , low carb sausage (my local butcher makes them)
L salmon pate (same as yesterday made way too much will b eating it for the next few day) with salad
D fish pie topped with cauliflour mash

DH pie was topped with mashed potato and I didn't even taste it, I luuuuurve mash potato. No real craving today but feel I ate too much, but want to get cravings under control.

It is really simple to make

200gr smoked salmon, cut into small pieces
200gr tinned salmon
300gr Philadelphia full fat
Cayenne pepper to taste, I like a lot

Pile the whole lot in a food processer and pulse til smooth.

Pop in fridge until it is firm, about an hour.
I spread it on iceberg lettuce, and pretend it is a wrap!!!

We have mainly homecooked meals so atkins is ideal as anything is easily adapted. I'm love spicy food, so indian, pakistani, nepalese, LURVE Thai and any oriental. But then I also good old fashioned sunday roasts and pies and cheeses. We have mainly curries but I just love a good variety food :D.

And you?

We love anything spicy Asian or moroccan. Was going to make Thai curry at the weekend but looked at coconut and carbs are 22g per 100g...... so def won't b doing that!

OMG I think ketosis is beginning to set in, work up exhausted this morning, back to bed for an hour after kids went to school. Breakfast of bacon (2) and egg bout 9.30. Still not hungry ....... will have a bit of cheese for lunch.... hope this keeps up.

Morrocan..my kind of girl x. I think you should be ok with Thai red curry, are you making the sauce? We are having lamb curry obviously I'll spoon out the lamb and have little of the sauce but the lamb will still be very flavour-some and saag-panner (spinach & feta) as my side. It's a low carb take on saag-aloo.

To busybusy, checked out a diff brand of coconut milk at shops, only
3 carbs per 100ml so bought that, curry back menu. That panner sag sounds good, will try that.
