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! ...

Keto Pumpkin & Beef Sautée

As most experienced keto-dieters know, not everything low in carbs can be eaten daily or in unlimited amounts. Although I really like low-carb pancakes and other low-carb "sweets", I only eat them occasionally. The truth is that in most cases, eating low-carb treats such as muffins, sweet breads or cheesecakes ...

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 ...
