This combination of slow carbs and a relatively high amount of protein means my blood sugar stays nice and even and I avoid the worst rollercoaster rides of blood sugar spikes and the following crashes. That's not to say I don't cave in to the odd choccy bar or carb fest, and that is OK, as long as I get back on track again afterwards.
- No breakfast (I know... shame on me!)
- Bread roll with smoked salmon, cream cheese and egg (lunch out today, hence carb laden bread roll...)
- Steak with oven roasted sweet potato, red pepper and onions, sprinkled with balsamico and served with a tsp of sour cream (coming up on "Friday Feast" on MBP this week!)
- Smoothie with banana, raspberries, blueberries and protein powder (see photo above - YUM!)
(Not sure about the exact cals in my lunch so have overestimated a bit just in case!)
