Is keto all about eggs, bacon and cheese? Not at all! Saturated fats, monounsaturated fats (MUFA) and omega-3 fatty acids - all should be part of every healthy low-carb diet. Typically, people who follow the ketogenic diet tend to get plenty of saturated fats and not enough heart-healthy MUFA and omega 3s.

I see so many people who only focus on their macros and I cannot emphasise this enough: When it comes to the ketogenic diet, micronutrient density and food quality matter, more than keeping your carbs ultra low.

Foods like extra virgin olive oil, fatty fish and non-starchy vegetables - which are abundant in the Mediterranean diet - are beneficial and play an important role in weight loss and overall wellbeing.

This week I had the opportunity to review a great book by Robert Santos-Prowse, The Ketogenic Mediterranean Diet. Robert is a clinical dietitian-nutritionist who writes about nutrition science and food politics and why both of them matter in our everyday lives.

His book emphasises the importance of healthy fats and combines two diets: the ketogenic diet and the Mediterranean diet - the dietary approach I personally tend to follow on most days.

The ketogenic diet is explained in simple terms, all backed up by research and without unnecessary pseudo-science. The book also offers a few simple and easy to follow recipes, one of which I'm sharing with you today!

Crustless Keto Mini Quiches

These crustless mini quiches are so quick and easy to prepare. Eat warm straight from the oven and then store the rest in the fridge and you've got breakfast covered for several days.

They take less than 30 minutes to prepare and are the perfect on-the-go meal. I like my veggies so I doubled the amount of broccoli!

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.
