My secret to following a healthy low-carb diet for almost a decade? Keeping it simple on most days! By 'simple' I mean easy to find whole food ingredients that are quick to prepare and nutrient-dense to help me stay full for longer. Speaking of easy keto recipes... that is what I focused on in my latest Keto Simple Cookbook!

This recipe is my healthier version of a popular British all-day breakfast meal. I skipped the commonly used baked beans in sweet tomato sauce, potato hash browns, black pudding and sausages (although you could always add gluten-free sausages!). Instead I added sliced avocado for healthy fats and potassium, spinach for magnesium, roasted mushrooms and sweet cherry tomatoes. This is a great way to get all the nutrients you need in one delicious meal that takes 15 minutes to prepare!

Another way to make keto eating simple is to incorporate intermittent fasting which simply means that you can skip meals when you're not hungry. And that is really easy on keto!

Keeping your diet low in carbs, high in fat and moderate in protein will keep your blood sugar levels stable and you won't need to eat as often as you used to on a 'standard' diet that is high in carbs. In simple terms, you will be able to better control your appetite and feel less hungry.

There is a simple rule you need to follow if you want to try intermittent fasting: You'll need to make your portions more satisfying which meant that you need to worry less about eating too many calories and more about eating enough nutrient-dense foods. This means more protein, more fat and also more calories per meal. For those who regularly practice intermittent fasting, it's not uncommon to eat over 1,000 calories in just one meal. You can find a full guide to intermittent fasting here.

No time to cook? You can cook all of the ingredients in advance and store for up to a day or two. Fried eggs are best served fresh so swap them for poached eggs instead as poached eggs can be stored in the fridge in a bowl filled with cold water. When ready to serve, gently reheat the eggs in a mug filled with hot water. All of the remaining ingredients can be reheated in a microwave or in a hot pan.

We want low-carb and keto to be accessible to everyone no matter what their dietary preferences and restrictions are. There are hundreds of simple keto recipes freely available on my blog so make sure to check them out and use the recipe filtering tool to find exactly what you're looking for.

  2. Fry the bacon until crispy. Fry the eggs until the white is cooked through and opaque, and the yolk is still runny. Tilt the skillet and pour the hot oil over the egg white to help it cook faster. Easy Full English Keto Breakfast
  3. Place the cherry tomatoes in the pan where you cooked the bacon and egg and fry on high for just about a minute. Frying is optional and you can serve the tomatoes fresh if you prefer that.
  4. Drain the spinach (once you squeeze out the water, you'll get about 40% of the original weight, about 30 g/ 1 oz drained sspinach). Optionally, throw in the pan where you cooked the egg to heat through. Easy Full English Keto Breakfast
  5. Serve everything with sliced avocado. Season to taste and enjoy immediately. Easy Full English Keto Breakfast

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.
