Smoked Salmon Lemon ‘Pasta’

Smoked Salmon Lemon ‘Pasta’

I think it’s a bit obvious that I’m a fan of Shirataki noodles, but as so far I always do them Asian style, I wanted to see how well they’d hold up in something a little more ‘Western’. This was a quick, comforting dinner and […]

Cheeseburger & Egg Salad

Cheeseburger & Egg Salad

This is another ‘recipe’ that really comes under the Meal Ideas category, because there’s just so many ways you can play with it to customise to your preferences/macros and whatever you have in the cupboard to chuck in with it. I’d bought some lovely burgers […]

Aubergine & Feta, Cauliflower Pilaf

Aubergine & Feta, Cauliflower Pilaf

I tend to eat a fair few vegetarian meals, and previously I’d have made something like this pilaf, with a bunch of lentils or chickpeas and rice. The lentils will have to wait until I can switch over to maintenance keto with a slightly higher […]

Mushroom Stroganoff & ‘Egg’ Noodles

Mushroom Stroganoff & ‘Egg’ Noodles

Not going to lie, I got through a couple of eggs before getting the noodles right and it was a perfect example of a time when I should really have looked up a recipe instead of winging it and being lazy by trying to do […]

Keto Week 3 – Review

Keto Week 3 – Review

Between some rather erratic meals due to work and the heat, I didn’t photograph everything, but these were the highlights! 😀 Recipes that aren’t already online will be added over the course of this week! Start Weight: 77.9kgWeight after Week 3: 72.1kg Observations: Settling far […]

Simple Salmon and Scrambled Eggs

Simple Salmon and Scrambled Eggs

I’m hesitant to put this down as a ‘recipe’, because I feel it’s more of a meal assembly, so I’ve created a new category of posts for ‘Meal Ideas’, which for my lifestyle, tend to be meals I can throw together relatively quickly and/or with […]

Pan-fried Duck Breast with 5 Spice, Honey & Soy Sauce

Pan-fried Duck Breast with 5 Spice, Honey & Soy Sauce

Stop the press! This one’s got REAL honey in it! 5 whole metric grams per person! Of course you can reduce the carb content yourself by substituting any number of sugar-free syrups or stevia drops, but personally I choose to plan my day around this […]

Yaki Shirataki Noodles

Yaki Shirataki Noodles

I love Asian food. I believe that being half Chinese and spending time growing up in Japan, gave my sister and I a real appreciation of different food cultures which have continued to this day. Many east-Asian recipes can be very easily adapted for low-carb […]

Anything-Spiced Chicken

Anything-Spiced Chicken

I’ve called this Anything-Spiced Chicken because I use exactly the same process for a variety of flavoured chicken. It’s one of my very easy ‘go-to’ dishes when I can’t be bothered to think of something else and you can tweak the meal carb content by […]

Melanzane alla Parmigiana (Baked Aubergine with Cheese & Tomato)

Melanzane alla Parmigiana (Baked Aubergine with Cheese & Tomato)

In the short time I’ve been posting recipes online, this is the most commonly requested recipe. Which to be fair, is understandable given it can be harder to find many good, meat free AND keto-friendly options. Aubergine parmigiana doesn’t require too many adjustments to bring […]
