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 ...

Homemade Pumpkin Purée

One of the things I enjoy most about eating low-carb is that I get to make my own high-quality ingredients. The issue with commercially available products is not just the amount of additives. Most of the cans are lined with Bipheol A (BPA) which has been linked to many negative health effects and should ...

I LOVE pesto and this recipe is one of my favourites. It's great for low-carb diets and thanks to herbs and tomatoes, it's loaded with potassium.

Italian-Style Baked Mushrooms

Yesterday, you read how to make infused home-made ghee. This recipe is a great example of where using it makes a difference.

Cheese-Stuffed Portobello Mushrooms

Low-Carb Piña Colada Cocktail

The follow up to my Margarita Cocktail is here just in time for the 4th July! Low-carb Piña Colada is definitely my favourite treat. A serving has 7.6 g of net carbs.
