Mediterranean, especially Greek cuisine is perfect for a low-carb diet. The only downside is the sweets that, as some of you may know, are literally swimming in syrup and covered in sugar.

Keto Egg Fried Rice

Like everyone, when I started my paleo-friendly ketogenic diet, I missed foods like rice, bread and pasta.

If you have never tried cauli-rice, you may be ...

Orange & Walnut Chocolate Fat Bombs

When creating this recipe, I was inspired by the delicious Crunchy Cherry Chocolate Confections from Low-carb So Simple.

Homemade Vanilla Extract (Vanilla-Infused Vodka)

Vanilla flavour is probably one of the most widely used flavourings in cakes, waffles, cookies and other (low-carb) treats.
