No, they aren't high in carbs - that's exactly the point. They aren't like other crackers. We wouldn't recommend them here if they were like other crackers.

https://www.brancrispbread.com/ You can order these online

Optimist Crackers Sorry - these you have to make yourself! But they're definitely worth the trouble!

Salad with bacon and cheddar cheese (shredded by me from brick of cheese) and homemade creamy french salad dressing (thank you for posting that Shanny! It's delicious).

bg before meal 135...didn't take any insulin (bolus). I will test 2 hrs and take correction dose if needed. Was very glad to see 135!!!!

A tin of sardines in olive oil (37g) and a lovely cold, ripe, moist Shepard avocado. They were on special at my supermarket the other day, labelled as Hass! Ripe Shepards like this are my absolute favourite. I'm kicking myself for not buying more of them.

I agree they are really flavoursome, I haven't seen them on special though

All we're seeing around here right now are little bitty ones - could barely be two/three bites once you got the pit out of it. I haven't purchased any of them, but I'm sure missing them! Keeping my eyes open for bigger crops to come!

I'm thinking of planting some avocado trees as I love them, pretty expensive over here though

I'm finding them quite hard to get, but I keep an eye out. These were from Coles at Caboolture, and I've also found some at Woolies at Morayfield recently and at the Sunday market at Caboolture also. But they're not there for long, and never there the next time I go, even if it's only a couple of days later. The Hass are always available, but usually poor quality. I'm sure they can't be fresh.

Do you have the right slope? If so, it would be great, I'm sure. The Shepards I bought were from New Zealand, so if they grow there, you should be able to grow them where you are, as long as you have enough water for when those dusty westerlies blow through.
