Keto Week 28 – Catching Up

Keto Week 28 – Catching Up

So I might have been slacking on updates… between the Christmas break then hitting the ground running at work this year, blogging kinda fell by the wayside. My intention was to maintain the current weight I’d lost and although I transitioned intentionally to eating low […]

Keto Week 16 – Review

Keto Week 16 – Review

Finally able to get some weight on my ankle this week, but food was still relatively simple, back-to-basic keto style for minimum standing. Complete NSV at the weekend was having to buy some wardrobe staples (tops and jeans) in a size 12 as everything is […]

Keto Week 15 – Review

Keto Week 15 – Review

So after last week’s optimism, I seem to have either not entirely got over the gout, or I had a back-to-back attack because it seemed to mostly disappear, but then came back over the weekend in its usual place. Thankfully, due to sitting still pretty […]

Miso-glazed Salmon, Aubergine, Broccoli & Pumpkin

Miso-glazed Salmon, Aubergine, Broccoli & Pumpkin

I bought a few munchkin pumpkins a few weeks ago because they are awesomely low in carbs, but hadn’t figured what to do with them. Then this week I bought a bag of beautiful salmon offcuts, so thought I’d experiment by combining a lot of […]

Panfried Coley with Tomato, Olive & Caper Sauce

Panfried Coley with Tomato, Olive & Caper Sauce

Coley is a white fish that is similar to cod, but more sustainably fished and usually much cheaper! I’ve paired it with some of my favourite flavours: chopped cherry tomatoes, black olives and capers, with fresh parsley, lemon and olive oil. This makes a lovely […]

Keto Week 14 – Review

Keto Week 14 – Review

So after a week and a half of the longest gout flare I’ve ever had, the swelling and pain is finally subsiding and I can *nearly* put weight on my ankle again. The Naproxen painkillers really made me feel sick though, so food was pretty […]

Keto Week 13 – Review

Keto Week 13 – Review

As if the last couple of weeks couldn’t get worse: they did… After threatening to flare up over the previous weekend (I suspect through a combination of being overall feeling run down, and dehydration), the gout in my ankle decided to put in a massive […]

Capricciosa ‘Pasta’

Capricciosa ‘Pasta’

Words cannot describe just how much I love this pasta dish, and I think it may actually have surpassed my Chorizo, Aubergine and Tomato recipe as my new favourite! I liked it so much, and it’s SO easy to prepare that I had it twice […]

Capricciosa Cauliflower Bake

Capricciosa Cauliflower Bake

My absolute favourite pizza topping is ‘Capricciosa’, usually ham, olives, mushrooms, artichokes and tomato. I’d been wanting to try this using the Fathead Pizza base, but because I forgot to defrost any, decided instead to make it into a baked dish, bulked out with cauliflower […]

Cabbage Soup

Cabbage Soup

I very nearly didn’t post this, because who’s interested in cabbage soup?! Then I changed my mind, because it really is lovely – a proper winter warmer and fantastic if you’re not feeling too well. I make mine with a little pre-made carrot and swede […]
