Ultimate Keto Ice-Cream aka Frozen Fat Bomb

Most of my ice-cream recipes are high in fat and great for the ketogenic diet. This recipe is a fat bomb with almost 94% of the calories from healthy fats! Fat bombs are snacks high in healthy fats and very low in carbs and protein. They are great for those who find it difficult to include enough healthy ...

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 ...

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.

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 ...

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 ...

Keto Chocolate & Pecan Cookies and Benefits of Soaking Nuts

Cookies don't have to be full of sugar and other unhealthy ingredients - these cookies are perfect holiday treats! I had a checklist when creating this recipe; it had to: to be low in carbs & paleo-friendly include coconut flour and coconut oil taste as good as my mom's cookies! The last one was quite ...

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. It's also one of the most expensive spices in the world and that's one of the reasons why most commercially available "vanilla" extracts are synthetic and contain artificial additives. ...

Homemade Hazelnut Extract (Hazelnut Liqueur)

Food extracts can be full of unwanted sugar and other additives such as propylene glycol. The good news is that it's very easy to make your own. This recipe was adapted from PurpleFoodie.

Baked Low-Carb Strawberry & Ricotta Pancakes

Low-Carb Candied "Yams" with Marshmallows

A couple of weeks ago, I received a request for this Thanksgiving recipe. Making candied yams with marshmallows low-carb was a real challenge for me. Everything in the traditional recipe is just about sugar. Both marshmallows and sweet potatoes, sometimes called yams are high in carbs. After several ...

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 ...
