You already know about the benefits of a low-carb diet. Some of us are tempted to go even further.
Cutting down carbs to 20-30g a day makes you lose weight quickly and painlessly.
So, if you cut your carbs down to zero, it will be even better – right?
Not necessarily. Here’s why. Keep reading “Zero-carb diet – worth a try?”

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.
Blueberries sit on top of rich creamy mascarpone filling, inside golden almond-flour crust. Perfect combination of tangy and sweet tastes, offset by contrasting textures: crispy crust, smooth cream and plump fresh blueberries. Keep reading “Low-Carb Blueberry Tart”
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”
Summer is here and berries are in season again. This is good news for us as berries are generally quite low in carbs. They help to fill the gap left by fruit.
One traditional way to have berries is to mix them with cream, whipped or plain. This keto mousse recipe takes that concept a couple of steps further, to form a keto fat bomb comprised mostly of cream, with vanilla and blueberries.
It is creamy, rich and very, very high in fat. Anyone who is not on a ketogenic diet should probably stop reading now! You have been warned. Keep reading “Vanilla keto mousse with blueberries”
It’s cold outside – time to make hearty soups and stews! This cauliflower soup recipe is very simple, but utterly delicious.
Basically, you just need to boil cauliflower in stock, add lots of fat (in form of cream and cheddar cheese) and season!
This is an expanded recipe from the classic low-carb cauliflower dishes round-up earlier this year.
By the way – the orange bits on the photo come from grated Red Leicester cheese, which is similar to cheddar. They are not carrots!

This post lists the most scrumptious low-carb high-fat (LCHF) foods. Let’s count our blessings and rejoice.
