If you've been missing meat pie, you have to give this recipe a try. Unlike many other low-carb pie crusts, this one is crispy and tastes amazing. Just perfect to fill with some meat, vegetables, eggs, cheese or any of your favourite filling. If you don't eat dairy, just skip the cheese and use more eggs or add mushrooms and vegetables such as asparagus, kale or broccoli.

My 30-Day Keto Weight Loss Challenge is almost over (final day is on 8th February). Make sure you send me you progress results by 15th February to win an iPad 3 mini, Breville Fast-Slow Cooker or MCT oil! If you didn't make it this time, I'm planning to start another 90-day challenge in mid February with even more prizes - details will be announced soon! :-)

  2. Place baking paper on top and use ceramic baking beans to weight the dough down. You will need them to prevent the dough from rising and creating air bubbles, especially if you are making a large pie. Place in the oven and bake for 12-15 minutes. Low-carb Pork & Egg Pie
  3. Peel and finely chop the onion and garlic and place on a pan greased with ghee. Cook for 5-7 minutes while stirring. Then add sliced bacon and cook for further 5 minutes or until crispy. Low-carb Pork & Egg Pie
  4. Dice the pork loin and add to the pan with the bacon. Cook over a medium heat until browned from all sides. When done, take off the heat and set aside to cool down. Low-carb Pork & Egg Pie

I changed the way I ate in 2011, when I was diagnosed with Hashimoto’s, an autoimmune disease that affects the thyroid. I had no energy, and I found it more and more difficult to maintain a healthy weight.

That’s when I decided to quit sugar, grains, and processed foods, and to start following a whole-foods-based ketogenic approach to food.
