@Minumonline Dinner was lovely. Oh yes already do Thai curries so they are easy and wonderful with pinged riced cauliflower broccoli. Walnut oil drizzle yum

Still the bullet coffee is a goody too, I don't ratchet the butter and coconut butter oil to the volumes described. Currently enjoying 2 teaspoons unsalted butter and 1 teaspoon coconut butter oil in a home brew with unsweetened almond milk to taste. Sweeten with stevia. It's lovely

Hi @Minumonline, just checked the protein content of one egg, since your figure seemed a bit high - used a few different sources, and the consensus was that one egg contains 6-7 g of protein, depending on size, making four eggs come in a 24-28 g protein. Unless you're eating ostrich or dinosaur eggs :wink:. So the news is not all bad!
Thanks very much jools7 - this isn't the first time MFP has duff values for waitrose food - I'm going to try and find an email address to point out their MFP figures don't match their labels

Feel better about my egg-intensive diet now :grin:
Picked this link up from Madcatlady in the Sugar thread. ... l-fat.html

It is interesting that children that drink whole fat milk weigh less than those that drink skim milk, and that a quick way to fatten pigs is to feed them skim milk.

I wonder how long it will take to overcome the low fat brain washing we have been subjected to over the last 40 years?
