Today's discovery & purchase - nestle malted milk!!! yay yay yay. so excited. i love malted milk and haven't had it in years. hopefully the kids like it. will make a fantastic alternative to choc and strawberry milk! so glad it is fructose free!!!
No WAY! Really???? That is awesome, I am getting some! I love it on ice cream, so if I make my own ice cream, I can have it with malted milk, which is awesome!

Good news - I have lost 0.7kg in a week *happy dance*
Just wish my headache would go away
I maintained for the first 4 weeks, but as it turned out I was eating a few things that I *thought* were sugar free, but weren't.
Then I lost 3kg in 3 weeks. I then had some sugar and had cycle/hormonal stuff and went up. The last 6 weeks, I've had -0.9, -1.4, -1, -0.1, +0.2, -0.6.
Interestingly, I don't even count how long I've been doing it anymore. It's not a chore, I don't find it hard anymore.
I still want to try that lemon meringue recipe using glucose!
I modified the SPQP Anzac cookies and they tasted DELICIOUS! But I love that I can now have 2 and that's enough, I don't crave more.
Makes approx. 24
2 cups plain flour
1 cup rolled oats
¾ cup coconut
1/2 cup dextrose
150 g butter
¾ cup RMS
3 tablespoons boiling water
4 tablespoons glucose syrup
1 teaspoon baking powder
Preheat oven to 150 (or 170 for me, because we don't have a fan!)
Mix the flour, oats, coconut and dextrose in a large bowl.
Melt the butter in a saucepan. Then add the glucose, water and RMS and when it just starts to boil, remove from heat.
Pour the hot liquid into the bowl and mix.
Put heaped teaspoons of mix onto parchment covered oven trays. They spread, so leave a decent amount of space between.
Bake until just starting to brown on the edges (for me that was 17mins for a full tray of them. They burnt when I left them for 25 mins.)
