Banting week 66

Here I am with this week’s menu blog post 🙂

I’m a bit busy so have to cram this in now or else I won’t get a chance. Our phone lines where down for most of last week so that meant no internet so my blog had to wait even though I had another post all done and ready to be posted.

This week’s menu is pretty straight forward and there won’t be a “How To” section as I have nothing to add.

Saturday was “Braai” day again and we overdid the protein totally. And Sunday…well it was just a terrible day. Firstly I’ve been looking forward to going to a new “Big Farmers Market” for weeks now and once again it was a total disappointment. There was no farmers or fruit and veg or any produce stalls to be found anywhere. So with our day out being a bust we decided to stop somewhere for a Sunday lunch, the manager where kind enough to swop out rice and potatoes and pudding for us and gave us extra veggies. It all looked pretty nice but my O my was the veg loaded with sugar. Suffice to say our blood sugar spiked through the roof and 3 hours later we felt terrible and hungry so in jumped Ninette and made us a proper meal. So we are never going to do that again.

Have a great week everyone and remember to make the better choices 🙂

  1. Once again I’m inspired by your defication and committment. Well done! Stay strong on this journey! I baked a batch of lovely banting rusks. We start our morning with 1 rusk and coffee every morning, that sustains us till 10:00. I must add – we are on maintenance and banting for health, not for weight-loss.
