Yesterday I shared my way of preparing shirataki noodles, getting rid off the unpleasant odour and rubbery texture so I can enjoy this amazing zero-carb ingredient. Today, I'm sharing my absolute favourite way of eating noodles: in a stir-fry mixed with fresh vegetables, spices and herbs. I bet that most of you won't be able to tell the difference from the regular high-carb stir-fry!

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.

Please, no cilantro. Also get yourself some dried shrimp too and replace the spring onion with garlic chive.
