LCHF Eating in Newcastle – plans for Summer 2017 – Tapas at El Coto

So, I feel like I need to start making some concrete eating plans for our trip to Glasgow and Newcastle/Gateshead – I’ll flip these into FlipBoard, but I need to park them here in order to do that.

I hope to use these ideas to see how well being LCHF (low-carb high-fat) or at least LCMF (low-carb moderate-fat) goes whilst in Scotland and England
