Two totally unrelated thing.
(1) Monday should be called wee day. After carbing up* on Saturday, then eating low carb on Sunday, Monday is the day that my body releases all the extra fluid the carbs attract. I spend so much time on the loo it is embarrasing.
* I don't think this carb cycling is working for me. I am gradually gaining weight, not losing it. And whatever I ate on Saturday [mostly a bread overload] it made me feel very ill. There is also not much left that I really crave because everything so far has made me sick or has been not as delicious as I remember it.
(2) This evening my husband discovered that in order to make gravy, all you need is a thickening agent which doesn't have to be flour. Tonight we tried psyllium husk in the bottom of the roast lamb pan. Admittedly, it had the texture of snot, but it was flavoursome and added that bit of moisture to the meat.
