Morning fellow liver sufferers.....

This is me alternating between this and alpen forever. Just wish I'd done it sooner πŸ˜‡. Yeah right,,, I miss a full English breakfast. Head up and drive....😏.

The Apple pies haven't been touched Aotea!😊

Well smooth liver is happy this morning, but brain is looking covetously at the Bramley Apple pies and dreaming of sausages and bacon. Having been convinced by liver it isn’t a good idea at the moment has started to explore when it may be possible to dive into a luscious fried egg with all the trimmings. Stomach has joined in on this pursuit but heart is looking dubious. Cholesterol and salt scare the life out of him but brain tells him to shut up and go back to beating his drum again. Deeply exploring diet charts, brain concludes that 5 a day and the bottom of a rabbit hutch (Alpen) are order of the day for a bit....sadly stomach agrees, but go in pursuit of a calendar and pen and start working out a date when a full english may be possible. Equipped with a pen and calendar they write down a lot of questions for body’s next hospital appointment to check the date they’ve come up with is ok for smooth liver but ignore hearts protestations. I’ll stop beating this drum one day he exclaims, and brain tells him that just like getting a new smooth liver has been possible they also do very shiny new hearts! So he shuts up, feeling aggrieved, but recognising that he’s part of a team and will go along with the others.

I think you covered it all... hahahaha, you are nuts woman but never change. Laughter is all part of the medication πŸ€£πŸ€£πŸ€£πŸ€£πŸ€£πŸ˜†

When I was diagnosed type 2 diabetes, I got rid of my frying pan and threw all my eggs away. Then when I was on an education course for diabetes, they said, eggs are okay and to dry fry them is perfect. So, my first "fried" egg after 11 months was heaven. I use that 1% spray and just give it 1 squirt and have egg on toast, lovely. All the protein and none of the oil.

The only thing I really miss is marmalade. But I did buy some blood oranges last week and they were sweet and sharp, so a very acceptable substitute. :)

I'll have a go at the eggs buddy, I do, do poached eggs but it's a little too much messing and cleaning first thing. A Saturday, Sunday jobi mi thinks! 😊

You probably already know that post transplant you are not supposed to have soft or runny eggs and some types of oranges are not recommendedπŸ™

Have had the chat with the dietitian (last week) my results are fine to eat most things (I have a list of what I can't) and she discharged me from her care. She knows me well and knows I don't lie (I have no reason) I tell her everything and she tells me off a little bit, informs me what not to eat and how much. Happy....

I love eggs. I typically scramble one with yoke and the other two without the yoke and eat a whole grain egg sandwich with a splash of mustard.

A scrambled egg sandwich, doesn't the egg just fall out? I love it on toast with black pepper.

That post made my dayπŸ˜‚

Danny, I don't care what you say, I'm betting that apple pie box is empty! πŸ˜‚ It's open and you see it every time you are eating healthy. It's like a constant reminder, psssh Danny over here. You don't want that Alpen or toast, you want some pie. Just warm us up and enjoy. LOL

Hahahaha 🀣 yeah, yeah! There is 2 left you got me.....πŸ˜‡ Honest.... Anyway stop it G you will get me in trouble 🀣

Jeez Louise that's awesome 😎. Loving it sweet πŸ’ž

It looks extremely healthy, I'm plodding on with the Gluten free Granola and seeds reminds me of the bottom of my daughter's bunny hutch 🀣🀣🀣, I'm going all out with a drizzle of honey and two spoonfuls of fat free yoghurt , with that calorie intake I don't have to move for half a day to burn calories. I'll be light as a fairy before I know it 🧚🧚, I know they irritate you 🀣 xxx

Only when you cover my posts with them and I'm trying to act all hard (Manley, before all the jokes come in, Dave πŸ˜†).I hope you meant to look at the bottom of the bunny hutch and not remind you of the taste haha 🀣.

That does sound nice to be honest T. I saw somewhere that if you crush pistachio nuts into vanilla ice cream it's not so bad for a treat. X

No pressure Adilee, I don't think it will be just yet, Dave has a few things to do. We haven't mentioned anything apart from April. Another lovely lady and her husband want to meet as well at York. Her husband is not well so that is a hit n miss. You have me on tenterhooks now about your story. Doesn't matter what it is I still love ya (hahahaha 🀣) Don't tell if you don't want to. It would be fantastic if you could meet..... hold on I am an hour from York, I'm south which way are you?
