Paleo Greek Meatballs aka Soutzoukakia

As you may have noticed, I love Greek and Mediterranean food. There are a couple of recipes inspired by Greek cuisine on my blog: Melitzanosalata (Greek Eggplant Salad), Lamb Souvlaki (Greek Lamb Skewers) or even these spooky Healthy Halloween Cookies. The truth is, I wouldn't be able to try some of ...

Ultimate Bacon Hash

This breakfast meal is based on my friend's Bacon Hangover Cure recipe. It's easy and quick to prepare and very popular in my house, almost as much as my Brussels Sprout & Bacon Hash :-) It's also great when served on top of a slice of toasted Low-carb "Rye" Bread! Preparation time: Hands-on: 15 minutes ...

Double Chocolate Keto Waffles

I make all sorts of waffles, both sweet (like these Pumpkin Spice Waffles) and savoury. I often make them in advance and keep in the fridge or freezer for a quick snack when I don't have time to cook. When it comes to the ingredients, whey protein (or egg white protein if you are allergic to dairy) give ...

Creamy Key Lime Popsicles

I'm a big fan of avocados and eat them almost every day. Avocados are superfoods and great for a low-carb diet. One average avocado gives you 50% of your daily potassium, contains heart-healthy monounsaturated fats and is high in fibre. They work great in both savoury and sweet meals because of their ...

Keto Mexican Rice with Chorizo

This spicy Mexican-style dish is my favourite for several reasons. It's keto-friendly, quick and you will only need to use a few common ingredients. Like other recipes on my blog, this one is great for those who Celebrate Cinco de Mayo. As many of you may have guessed, there is no rice or other grains ...

Low-Carb Mint Chocolate Chip Ice-Cream

Easter Marbled Eggs and Why Use Natural Dyes

Happy Easter everyone! If there is something I always do for Easter, it's dying eggs. I avoid using artificial colours and instead use natural ingredients like onion skins and beetroot to dye eggs. Studies show that artificial colours have been linked to hyperactivity, impaired ability to learn in children ...

Melitzanosalata (Greek Eggplant Salad) and Why Eat Eggplants

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. Avoid them completely and as always stay away from bread, potatoes, rice and pasta and you are left with REAL food! ...

Brussels Sprout and Bacon Hash

Brussels sprouts, like other cruciferous vegetables, contain low to moderate amount of carbohydrates. They have a low glycemic load (GL) and are a great source of vitamin A, C and B and potassium. According to the USDA database, there are 5.1 grams of net carbs per 100 grams. This means that in order ...

Keto Egg Fried Rice

Like everyone, when I started my paleo-friendly ketogenic diet, I missed foods like rice, bread and pasta. However, I soon discovered that it's quite easy to make healthy alternatives to all-time favourites like rye bread, pizza, pasta, or even ice-cream. If you have never tried cauli-rice, you may be ...

Keto Tuna Salad

This salad is one of my "grab & go" favourites. It's great for anyone with a busy lifestyle looking for a sating and nutritious low-carb meal they can take to work. I always have hard-boiled eggs and keto-friendly mayo in my fridge. This way I save time and money and avoid temptations. If you want to ...

Paleo Sardine Stuffed Avocado

I've been busy working on the next big update of KetoDiet App which will soon be on the Appstore. I won't go into detail now but will write a post about what you can expect in the new version :-) Now, back to my recipe… Stuffed avocados are quick to prepare, sating and low in carbs. I use all kinds of ...

Healthy Valentine Hearts

This is a quick and easy low-carb and paleo-friendly recipe for Valentine's Day! I used freeze-dried strawberry powder but you can use any freeze-dried berry powder you like. I think raspberry or cherry will also work great. As you will find out, a small amount of berry powder is enough to give the candies ...

Quick Beef Ragù with "Zoodles"

I know it can be challenging to follow a healthy keto diet without spending hours cooking. This recipe only requires a few common ingredients and is full of nutrients, especially magnesium and potassium, both of which are essential for our health. Preparation time: Hands-on: 15 minutes Overall: 20 minutes ...

Thai Hot and Sour Shrimp Soup

While I'm working on the next weekly diet plan for my challenge, my friend, DJ Foodie has a great low-carb recipe for you. I'm a big fan of Thai cuisine and this soup from DJ has soon become one of my favourites :-) One of my absolute favorite soups meals is the famous “Tom Kha Gai”, which means “Chicken ...

Orange & Walnut Chocolate Fat Bombs

When creating this recipe, I was inspired by the delicious Crunchy Cherry Chocolate Confections from Low-carb So Simple. I wanted to make dairy-free "fat bombs", so I added some coconut oil for extra fat-burning MCTs. Why fat bombs? If you follow a ketogenic diet plan, you probably know that the main ...
