I am joining Elizabeth and Bleubeard for T stands for Tuesday today, (slightly early, although the link is up! I keep getting a message that something isn't allowed but can't work out what it is and don't want to lose my scheduled post!)
I didn't have too many treats though, delicious though they looked! We tried to follow the French way of eating - Lunchtime 'Formules' (3 courses for a set price) were very good offers - and then a lighter meal in the evening! We also had water with every meal. Since we came back we have stuck with having our main meal at midday-ish and my blood sugar is continuing to fall! That combined with having lovely bread with every meal (almost) stopped me snacking! I have also lost weight- YAY!!!
I am convinced that the French way of making bread is a factor! I had a sandwich with wholemeal English bread when we got back and felt bloated and my blood sugar rose. We have been on a mission to find authentic French bread since then! Waitrose was the best we found until this weekend, when, having been to Artisan bakers and a variety of Super markets, we found that Booths, our favourite supermarket while up at our caravan has "proper" French bread - as it is so crusty I am satisfied with a small amount and my levels have fallen further!!
These are some of the treats I drooled over but didn't give way!!
|Like works of art aren't they?|
These beauties though really are - the most beautiful tray of stitched cakes!
I will carry on drinking my water - this was taken in Troyes near the beginning of our holiday.
A lovely setting for our meal!!
Thanks for looking, Chris
