Small amount of strawberries, blueberries, raspberries, blackberries with any type
of cream below.
, crème fraiche, whipping cream, single cream, double cream, clotted
cream. Not squirty cream though. Perhaps a tablespoon of milled flax seed
for extra nutrition.
-ditch margarine and use butter instead
Chick peas, lentils or cannellini beans (small amount only)
e.g. dry white wine, gin
(sweetener) - small sprinkling allowed
– salted almonds, macadamia nuts, pork scratchings, peperami
Sugar free peanut butter
or almond nut butter
Olive oil - use for cooking and salads. A very healthy oil.
Flaxseed (also known as Linseed).
Very healthy stuff. Extremely low in carbs, but high in nutritious fats and minerals.
Also a good source of fibre. Contains Omega 3 oils which are good for you.
We have milled flax seed as pictured. It's tasty and a tablespoon can be sprinkled
on top or mixed in with many foods.
Tastes great and a pack lasts a long time.
A change in diet may cause constipation in some people. If this is the case, we
recommend taking Psyllium Husk Powder
which can be found online and in health food
