    There are some clever things you can do with desserts replacing sugars snd starches i suggest you find yourself a nice keto recipe book... in fact the KetoConnect WB suggested on Youtube opened up on a simple recipe that is very similar to what I described to MissM earlier today...it is a recipe for custard tarts containing only eggs, sweetener, eggs and vanilla.... i even thought it could be modified slightly to resemble a creme brle... i also make a lot of fruit sorbets or fruit lollies in summer. And previously i would always have sugar free jelly in the fridge for when i get one of my yum yum moments... strangely did not do it haha n the last two rounds...you can also do a lovely English custard using cream and Sweetener and xanthum gum as a sweetener... you can have a lovely steamed apple with it... there are so many nice easily adaptable to be keto friendly

    So I believe you are also known as Jeff... pleased to meet you... as you may have picked up by now...i am Yvonne
    About that red wine.... do yourself a favour and look out for some South African wines...our reds are of the best in the world... enjoy you wine tomorrow

    You may want to google a bit... about not mixing alcohol with food... because your body will ignore the calories in the food and use the alcohol calories first to burn calories... the food requires extra work to be able for the body to burn fat... something like that

    Dubbles, check out chocolatecoveredkatie on the web for her dessert recipes. There's a chocolate cake that's so good you won't even know it's low carb.

    Yvonne, what are the low-sugar South African reds you have mentioned in the past? Any favorites we might be able to find here? Also need to look up what you mentioned about alcohol and food--that's all new to me.

    WB sounds like a fabulous plan. Enjoy every moment, every mouthful! Wine is something I absolutely love, but only on occasion anymore, thankfully. Largely because BF doesn't drink it, I think, and I have no interest in drinking alone. Also, I'm from Dallas, but haven't been to Houston since the '90s. I've heard it's quite a marvelous town these days--a far cry from the city I once knew.

    Happy Friday, all!! I'm doing much better now that I ate my steak. I was feeling pretty awful--grumpy, exhausted, not in good form. Pilates was a slog and my instructor was really irritating me. I take heart that this means my period is likely hours away--what a happy dance I'll do when she arrives!

    Hi my friend.... i fo not think our low calorie wines are quite export material
    Yo can but a John Platters wine guide which is the holy grail of South African wine ratings... some wines unfortunately change names after being export... my favourite is a Boschendal Blanc de Noir,... that is my go-to wine most of the time... reds in winter and then I prefer a cabernet or a cabernet Merlot blend
    You should joon a group called SaveSAWines on facebook... it tells you where to find SAWines around the world
    We are the only country in the world that had major lockdown on alcohol sales and it was killing our wineries
    We gave this amazing world class export product and the government shuts it down because locals cannot vontrol themselves....

    Sorry... rang over

    Thanks for the suggestion. I have tried South African red wines on a couple occasions. They are good but not my favorite style. A lot of people love them and they are well regarded. I mainly drink California Cabernets. When changing things up I enjoy some Argentinean Malbecs and Carmenere from Chile. Also drink a lot from the Rhone valley and some various Spanish and Italian thrown in. But honestly we don’t have a huge selection of South African wines and have not come across the better ones. I would love to try one of their better Pinotages to see what all the fuss is about.

    I like wine with food. I have heard the same thing but will take my chances.

    WB... i smiled when I read your post... i was thinking of making a generalization when talking about wines... so here it is, ln my opinion American style wines is very much milder in style ... your wines are lighter, similar to some French wines... however some French wines are very robust... like our wines.

    As an everyday wine I love a nice dry Rose which was really hard to get during lockdown... so finally my wine merchant found a new supplier... I tasted it but was do disappointed... my words to my wine merchant was that it was incipit and his reply was as that it was in ‘the french style’.... i like the SA, Australian and New Zealand wines... I guess we have similar weather...pinotage this originally a South African variety.. but yet I prefer Cabernet ot a cabernet/ merlot blend

    Right on. It all comes down to our palates and what works for us. I like a smoother, fuller more balanced wine. But I do not like it bland. I like some nuance. SA wines are bold and their style is unique. When I tried it I could tell it was a very well made wine. The style was not my style. I would happily drink it but would seek out other styles before them. But that is what makes the world of wine so great. So many excellent choices.
