    Still simmering with rage after food programme so posting this in defiance!
    Last night's dinner.

    Slow roast belly pork with a couple of roasted shallots, cauli mash, green beans and little gem lettuce cooked in stock and LOTS OF BUTTER - arrgh!!!
    Marscapone to use up from yesterday so baked some rhubarb in oven, then when cold folded it into a mixture of whipped cream and marscapone and ate for pudding. BS at bedtime was 4.9  mrgreen  - only one glass of wine so alcohol not to blame.
    Just off out to pick up a healthy low fat ready meal and a tin of sweetcorn, will measure blood sugar and send results to DUK... lol!

    @Sarah

    LOTS OF BUTTER !

    YUMMY, as the grand-children (and me) says. Daughter-in-Law always has butter on her shopping list. You can not run out of it can you?

    Just love the idea of your rhubarb dessert - and your BG at 4.9 just BRILLIANT  sunny

    Here's some more low-carb slop we had to force down; roasted chicken thighs (with garlic, butter, salt, lemon and some paprika), British asparagus (roasted too with a bit of olive oil and salt) and some purple sprouting broccoli. All covered by the butter from the chicken.

    If only we could have microwaved some e numbers, sugars, and reformed protein for a proper meal....

    Yes, I know its meant to be spring, and the weather getting warmer, but we still have the central heating on ... so I thought tonight's dinner has just got to be this lovely warming pork casserole. It's a great favourite - try it and I'm sure you will see why.

    Ingredients: Serves two
    2/3 pork chops remove fat and cut into small pieces *
    2 large leeks chopped
    1 hand full of button mushrooms
    1 large sliced carrot
    1 table spoon of dried mixed herbs
    Approx 1 pint of gravy stock
    Salt and pepper to taste.

    Method
    * Use Pork, diced braising steak or chicken
    Clean, cut and place all ingredients in a casserole dish or earthenware oven proof pot with lid. Pour over the stock and cook at 190c in an electric oven 90 mins. If using beef cook for two hours.Gas mark 5.

    What could be easier, very lowcarb, real food and tastes great. Perfect for a cooler Spring night.   sunny

    That 'serving bowl' casserole dish is a good many years old now and has always been my favourite ... I'd be quite upset if something happened to it ... funny how you get attached to an earthenware dish   Exclamation   (it's got a nice lid to it too)

    Tasted lovely ...

    Did you enjoy some tasty LCHF food ?

    Looks lovely Jan. I'm very partial to the peppercorn mackerel fillets. I take them to work and just stick them in the microwave. Simples :-)

    With Spring here, and Summer just around the corner, salads are back on the menu big time. Tinned red wild salmon from Alaska, celery, organic tomatoes from Guernsey, mushrooms, coleslaw, and apple, sultana and walnut salad. I think this sort of food is just so healthy for all ... whether you are a diabetic or non diabetic and even our grandchildren love it. How can you or yours go wrong with this food?

    This mustard chicken dish is great and can be served with cauliflower rice or vegetables and very low carb.

    Ingredients - Serves 2

    2 chicken breasts skin on
    100g mushrooms halved
    2 garlic clove finely chopped
    1 onion sliced
    2 tbsp dijon mustard
    1 tbsp mixed dried herbs
    150ml double cream
    200ml dry white wine

    Method

    1. Heat oven to 200 (gas Mark 6).

    2. Put your 2 chicken breasts, skin on in a shallow oven proof dish. with a small knob of butter on each breast. When oven is up to temperature place chicken in oven and cook for approx 30 minutes, until skin is golden brown and meat is well cooked through.

    3. Whilst chicken is cooking prepare and make the sauce. In a pan, heat a glug of olive oil. Add the chopped onion fry until soft.

    4. Add 100g mushrooms, halved, in the same pan until golden. Add 2 garlic cloves, finely chopped.

    5. Stir in 2 tbsp Dijon mustard and 1 tbsp mixed dried herbs.

    6. Add 200ml dry white wine and then bubble for 2 minutes.

    7. Turn heat down and allow sauce to cook uncovered for approx 10 minutes, stirring now and then. Stir in the double cream and allow to simmer.

    8. When chicken is cooked put on serving plates and serve with the lovely tasting sauce and accompanying vegetables of your choice. We had buttery mashed swede.

    BTW Not my photograph.

    All the best Jan

    Here is the recipe:

    Easy to make and ready in half an hour, this chicken, leek and Cheddar bake recipe is the perfect midweek chicken bake for the family. This delicious recipe serves 4 people and will take about 35 mins to rustle up. Packed with plenty of flavour, thanks to the buttery Cheddar cheese sauce and tangy leeks. This recipe uses chicken breasts but you could use other cuts of chicken too including thigh or wings to cut the cost down.

    Ingredients:
    1tbsp oil
    4 chicken breasts, diced
    2 leeks, washed and sliced
    25g butter
    150ml double cream
    150ml full fat milk
    125g Cheddar cheese, grated

    Method:
    Heat the oil in a large, non-stick frying pan and fry the chicken for 5 mins. Add the leeks and fry for 10 mins, covered.
    Meanwhile, melt the butter in a small saucepan (low heat) and stir in the cream. Cook for about 1 min. Off the heat, gradually whisk in the milk then bring to the boil, keep stirring. Season and add half the cheese and stir until melted.
    Place the chicken in a heatproof serving dish and pour over the cheese sauce. Sprinkle over the remaining cheese and place under a preheated grill for 2-3 mins until golden and bubbling. Serve with a green salad.

    Simple dinner idea .... grilled lamb chops simply served with a green salad.

    Very similar to this picture, sorry not mine but you'll get the idea.

    Italian-Style Beef Stew : Full Of Vitamin C



    Thought it was meant to be summer? With our current weather I think this meal could be more fitting than a salad ...

    Original article and recipe here

    Well it's meant to be summer but the weather at the moment is not too brilliant. So when I go shopping I will be buying ingredients for tonight's meal.


    Bangers and celeriac mash with roast fennel and green beans.

    Sausages from  Sainsbury’s very lowcarb, ultimate outdoor bred 97% pork, at 1.2 grams of carbohydrate per 100 grams, i.e. 3 sausages 200 grams 2.4 grams of carb. Add the mashed celeriac, fresh green beans and fennel. A very tasty meal and very lowcarb, a very easy to prepare meal.

    Peel a celeriac and cut into small chunks around an inch square, about 25mm in new money. Boil or steam for around 15 minutes. Drain off water and mash with a couple of knobs of butter. Place the sausages in a Pyrex dish and add the fennel with a little butter. Roast at 200 c for around thirty minutes, turning every 10 minutes, ladle some fat over the fennel. Warm up the mashed celeriac in a micro wave for a couple of minutes. Pour over some gravy (a beef oxo cube) Voila, a great lowcarb and tasty meal. It won’t break the bank and shouldn’t raise BG numbers to an unacceptable level.

    I can recommend this super low carb dessert for after dinner tonight


    This dairy-free whipped cream is perfect for those on a paleo diet / lifestyle

    INGREDIENTS:
    SERVES 4. Leftover cream can be frozen (whisk again before serving).
    1 tin of coconut milk (not low fat)
    1tsp vanilla powder (or extract, see notes original article)
    1tsp lime or lemon juice
    summer berries

    METHOD:
    1.Don’t shake up the tin of coconut milk!

    2.Open the tin and scoop out the white cream into a large bowl, leaving the centimetre or so of clear liquid behind. Add the vanilla powder and lime juice to the cream, then beat with electric whisk until billowing and increased in volume.

    NB: this will work best if the cream is chilled in the fridge first. But it isn’t essential.

    Serve with summer berries.

    See more about this Paleo Recipe Idea Here

    http://www.telegraph.co.uk/foodanddrink/healthy-recipes/11630408/Paleo-recipe-whipped-cream-with-summer-berries.html

    If you are looking for a dairy free whipped cream then the recipe idea above works well, but of course lovely summer berries could be served with double cream (heavy cream) or even clotted cream if you can tolerate dairy products in your lifestyle menu plans. The choice is up to you ...

    We love low carb fruits with double cream  sunny
