Oh, and in place of croutons, I throw in a handful of walnuts or almonds.

Sounds wonderful Roseanne!

When I eat at McDonalds I take two slices of low carb bread frpm home (9g carbs per slice). I put them in a zip lock sandwich bag. I replace the bun on my Big Mac with the low carb bread and I have a low carb meal. I never eat fries.

Maybe you should pull a joke and ask for a Big Mac without the buns. Can't wait to see their puzzled faces

I guess I could hand them my bread slices and have them make the Mac that way so they could save the bun. People just walking in would think it was some new kind of sandwich. LOL!

I suppose but I always feel strange when I throw the large bun in the trash. Noone seems to notice though.

Today I had a bowl of tropical fruitmix (it comes in frozen). It contained mandarin parts, green melon, orange melon, grapes, peaches, kiwi fruit, pineapple, mango

It has only 9.5 gr carbs per 100 gr product. I like it!

One portion (like the one I had - 80 gr) has 8 gr carbs

LOL Richard, Oh the things that we do DOH!! I have had a burger with advercardo but cannot taste the advo though and they were 70 cents dearer than without. So I made my own and store that in a jar and have that at maccas (Mc Donalds). I just get a buzz from onlookers and just get the ideas. Still my own bergers are better at half the carb count.

MMmm..... I might go crazy and buy $20AD on fruit and have that with some icecream. I am going to have to eat some fruit as I am not a regular fruit eater.

Tonite will be meatloaf (out of this new cookbook --diabetes of course), the rest of the family will have scalloped taters and stuffing while I have a nice salad and some fresh carrots.. My family says they feel guilty eating things that I really shouldn't have-- I just tell them I could have them if I wanted-- I just chose not to --- I am getting better at the whole "no" thing lol
