Keto Bacon & Onion Cookies

Not everyone can tolerate low-carb sweeteners. For some, sweeteners like stevia or Erythritol cause cravings and increase appetite while others may be struggling with digestive issues. If you have reached a weight loss plateau, avoiding all sweeteners for a while may help. These savoury cookies are a ...

Homemade Almond & Cashew Butter

Nut butters are best when made from soaked nuts and are great sources of magnesium which is an essential electrolyte often deficient in low-carb diets. As most of you may know, electrolytes play major role in beating "keto-flu". I've used Almond & Cashew Butter in several recipes created exclusively ...

Once this update is approved, you will be able to add this and many other recipes I have recently posted on my blog directly ...

Grilled Halloumi With Strawberry & Cucumber Salsa

As you may already know, I love Mediterranean food. Halloumi is one of the best low-carb foods to try when you visit Greece. Although it's a Cypriot cheese, it's commonly found in most Greek restaurants. A few weeks ago, I came across this beautifully looking salad on one of my social profiles. My first ...

Without getting into too much detail, this update will include several new features and recipes. To celebrate the upcoming release, I will let people who follow my Facebook page choose ...

Low-Carb Thin Crust White Pizza

When I ask what people miss on a low-carb diet, many often mention pizza. I like the cauli-crust base, bacon or cheese base but they're not quite the same as real pizza. The crust is what makes all the difference! So I spent a few days trying different sorts of pizza crusts and made two that I really ...

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! ...

Low-Carb "Rye" Bread

As you may have guessed, there is no rye used in this bread - I avoid using any sort of grains. Instead, this recipe relies on flaxmeal and coconut flour. I've never really liked the taste of most flax breads, but this one tastes great! It made me realise how little changes make a big difference. It ...

Baked Butternut Cups

I created this recipe by accident a few weeks ago when I was working on a recipe for Spiced Butternut Chips. I realized it was quite difficult to slice the wide part of the butternut squash and wanted to create a recipe that would make better use of it. Keep in mind this recipe is not "zero-carb" and ...

Caprese Skewers

Have you tried heirlooms? These beautifully colored tomatoes lack the genetic mutation that gives tomatoes their red color. Not only they are far more flavourful and juicy than regular tomatoes, but they're also more nutritious! It's up to you whether you use the skewers or make a regular Caprese salad ...

Chips & Crisps: Spiced Butternut Chips

Butternut squash is a type of winter squash that contains 2-3 times more carbs than summer squash. I wouldn't recommend it for a very low-carb diet, but you can have it as long as you stay within your net carbs limit. Keep in mind that chips and crisps are not meant to replace a proper meal. I admit ...

Italian-Style Zucchini Rolls

There are days I have no time to cook and appreciate something quick to have on hand for a snack. This recipe takes no more than 20 minutes and it's rich in potassium (25% RDA) which is essential for any low-carb diet. Preparation time: Hands-on: 10 minutes Overall: 20 minutes Nutritional values (per ...

Spiced Slow-cooked Lamb and 3 Simple Meal Ideas

It's always good to have some tender meat ready for making low-carb meals. Once cooked, you can keep it in the fridge and use straight away. Slow-cooked lamb is great when served on top of fresh crunchy lettuce (6.1 g net carbs), omelet (3.4 g net carbs) or sweet pepper (7 g net carbs). As in my Grilled ...

Cheese-Stuffed Portobello Mushrooms

I love simple meals that don't take long to prepare and this recipe is definitely one of them. If you want to add more protein, eat with some crisped up bacon or high-quality ham. If you want to add some heart-healthy fats, eat with avocados. Here are a few reasons why you should eat mushrooms: they ...
