Pork Loin Stuffed with Pumpkin & Sausage

Stuffed pork loin is an excellent keto autumn/ winter dish. The sweetness of pumpkin goes perfectly with spicy Spanish chorizo and pork sausage, all wrapped in tender pork loin with crisped up skin on top. Pure heaven! I used loin which is bigger than tenderloin but you can try either - just make sure ...

Pumpkin pie and chocolate are two flavours that go perfectly together in these low-carb, sugar-free treats. Over the last few years I've created several keto and paleo fat bombs.

DIY Pumpkin Pie Spice Mix

Autumn is here and it's the best time for pumpkin recipes. So what is it that gives pumpkin treats their characteristic taste?

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 ...

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 ...

Baked Butternut Cups

I created this recipe by accident a few weeks ago when I was working on a recipe for Spiced Butternut Chips.

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 ...

Keto Pumpkin Smoothie

When switching to a low-carb diet, most people avoid smoothies: They are full of sugar, aren't they? You have to be careful not just with the sweeteners you use but also certain fruits. Those that follow a very low-carb diet can forget honey, bananas or dates. I didn't want to give up smoothies - I like ...

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 ...
