Do you miss fruit on your low-carb diet?
Fruit is a great source of vitamins and fibre. But it is high in sugar.
Most fruit is off-limits on low-carb. Those of us who love fruit struggle to let it go.
Maybe you miss the sweet but tangy taste of fruit. Maybe it’s the crunchy texture.

Are you eating enough fat? If you are on a ketogenic diet, like Keto or Atkins Induction, you must eat fat to get thin.
Fat is wonderful. Fat adds joy to food. You can indulge in fantastically rich and scrumptious meals while losing weight. Easy, right?

Mushrooms are so good at guzzling fat. You can bathe them in butter or oil during cooking. They will happily absorb it all and carry on as if nothing happened.
Mushrooms, therefore, are perfect for a fat-bomb-type meal. They are low in carbs, with only 2g net carbs per 100g (3.5oz). We will infuse them with huge amounts of fat for a fantastic Keto meal. Keep reading “Keto mushroom bake”

I hope you are making the most of the berries season.
We know berries and cream are a match made in heaven. This recipe takes it one step further.

The Scotch egg is an all-time classic British recipe, beloved in its homeland. If you are not from Britain, you might find it a big baffling. But it really is a brilliant recipe. Basically, it is an egg wrapped in a sausage. Simple and clever!
It comes out as a small and perfectly portable parcel of protein and fat. Ideal for a low-carb breakfast on the go or a quick snack.
Traditional recipe calls for the breadcrumbs coating for the eggs. For a low-carb version, we just swap breadcrumbs for almond flour, or just skip this step. Keep reading “Low-Carb Scotch Eggs – a Perfectly Portable Parcel of Protein”

It takes about 20-25 minutes total to prepare and bake. Carb count is less than 1g net carbs per biscuit. Keep reading “Low-carb flourless chocolate biscuits”
