I make no apology for this my friends. Lots of lonely people self-cooking and lots of diabetics needing lower carbs than others. I have cooked many a breakfast during the lockdown periods and this is I put together and so it is one of mine. I adjusted things to suit me because I mostly wanted a low-carb cooked breakfast in about fifteen minutes. I am insulin dependent so once I have taken my shot I am ready to go and then, also, I do a one hour bike ride following eating. I have several breakfasts you might like. You don’t need to be diabetic to enjoy these but here is the first.
Oh! Why no apology? My whole life is lifestyle. What you see here is the real me. Work, play, eating and living in general. There’s plenty of woodworking put out by myself and the team. Over the lockdown, I felt it was important not to gain weight so I lost some. 17 lbs in fact, that’s in real money. In metric that’s 7.71 kg. I hit my goal 6 weeks ago in 2 1/2 months and was never hungry. My blood sugars average 6.8. My belly’s gone!
Also! I am fully engaged with the houseful of furniture too. designs are rolling around everywhere in my brain and the first evidence will be here soon.
