Orange Spiced Celeriac Chips

Celeriac (aka celery root) is a type of root vegetable. Most of you are probably familiar with the green part of the plant - the stalk. I'm personally not a big fan of celery stalk but love the root. Celery root is an amazing low-carb alternative to potato-based recipes such as mashed potatoes, hash ...

Rosemary & Garlic Eggplant Chips

This recipe is definitely one of my favourite for two reasons: very low in net carbs & taste great! Now, let's have a look why eggplants (aka aubergines) are so good for us: they contain antioxidants (most of them are in the purple skin) that protect our cells from free-radical damage => anti-aging effect! they ...

Homemade Coconut & Pecan Butter

I used to LOVE peanut butter: on pancakes, in cookies, chicken stews or just by itself. It was often one of my pre-workout snacks. However, here are a few reasons why you may want to avoid peanut butter like I do now: you are trying to eat as little carbs as possible you are following a paleo lifestyle you ...

From all the low-carb alternatives to potato chips I've tried, mixed vegetable chips are amazing and probably the most similar. Just be very careful how much of them you eat, they are not carbs-free!

Low-Carb Easter Smoothie

Easter Smoothie is my second Easter recipe. Although it's green, there are no vegetables included (avocado is technically a fruit). It's very rich in fiber, high-quality protein and slightly higher in carbs, so it's ideal as a pre/post-workout snack or as part of Targeted Ketogenic Diet. Preparation ...

Low-Carb Cappuccino (Dairy-free) and Tips for Coconut Milk

While working on my Easter recipes, I needed a little break. I previously attempted making cappuccino with many types of milk (almond, hazelnut, etc.) and found that coconut milk works best for making froth and tastes better. Almond milk just didn't work and I wouldn't use it in coffee. This coffee drink ...

Leprechaun Protein Smoothie

Although I'm not a big fan of "green smoothies", this one is delicious and definitely one of my breakfast favourites. And it's great for Easter and St Patrick's Day! Most smoothies are packed with sugar, unnecessary colorings or additives. This smoothie is not only low-carb but it's also made just from ...

Shamrock Eggs with Braised Spinach

St. Patrick’s Day brings to mind recipes like Corned Beef & Cabbage, Soda Bread, Irish Stew and Irish desserts. Apart from Corned Beef & Cabbage, which is naturally low-carb, all these are high in carbs and calories. Over the past few weeks I’ve been working on a few quick & simple low-carb recipes to ...

How to Make Cauli-rice

Cauliflower is not just a perfect replacement for potatoes and rice, it's also ideal for thickening sauces without adding too many carbs or making a pizza base. If you follow a healthy low-carb diet, you should always have some cauli-rice ready in your fridge. Cauliflower is one of my favourite ingredients ...

Post-Workout Banana Pancakes

This recipe is ideal as a pre/post-workout meal or as part of Targeted Ketogenic Diet, as it's higher in net carbs. If you don't want any carbs, try coconut oil rich in MCTs instead. Apart from these pancakes, I also like quick snacks made from coconut oil like Chocolate Coconut Candies. Preparation ...
