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 […]

Chinese Minced Pork & Prawn Salad

Chinese Minced Pork & Prawn Salad

I’m currently working on some variations to my favourite Taco Beef salad, to help mix up lunchtimes a little! This is a really yummy take on ‘Yuk Sung’, using Chinese 5 Spice powder and sweetener to approximate the flavour of hoisin sauce. Water Chestnuts and […]

Chicken & Egg Drop Broth

Chicken & Egg Drop Broth

Last week I caught the cold from Hell (is that a contradiction in terms?), so in my attempt to feed my body ALL the good things that might help it fight the bugs quicker, I made up this superfood chicken and egg broth. Jam-packed with […]

Sausage, Cauliflower, Broccoli and Mustard Bake

Sausage, Cauliflower, Broccoli and Mustard Bake

If there was ever a dish so typically keto, other than bacon & eggs or Steak and Veg, variants on Cauliflower Cheese certainly rank up there! This is a proper easy, comfort food, ‘curl-up-on-an-autumnal-evening-in-front-of-the-TV’ kinda meal. I used Kielbasa sausages because that’s what I had […]

Bigos – Polish Style Hunters’ Stew

Bigos – Polish Style Hunters’ Stew

With what seemed to be cooler temperatures and the start of autumn, I decided it was time to dig out my slow cooker and make one of my favourite stews. Then the temperatures got warmer again… But no matter, this is still a lovely, low […]

Keto Currywurst Sauce

Keto Currywurst Sauce

Some things just work. And I think I may have struck gold with this recipe! This is my keto version of the classic Berlin street food – juicy sausages, smothered in a spicy tomato ketchup-ey sauce; the perfect way to use up leftover hotdogs or […]

Keto Sausage Rolls

Keto Sausage Rolls

What else do you do with  Fathead dough other than pizza? How about sausage rolls? 🙂 I usually use the Bunlimited Classic Hotdogs for 1g carb per sausage, but you could easily replace with other sausages – meat or veggie ones!  

Classic Pepperoni Pizza

Classic Pepperoni Pizza

What else should one do with a fresh batch of a new Fathead dough recipe, than make pizza? (okay, or make Sausage Rolls…?) This baby 6″ individual pizza used half a serving (4g carbs!) of the new dough with mozzarella and pepperoni, for a quick […]

Chorizo, Aubergine & Sundried Tomato ‘Pasta’

Chorizo, Aubergine & Sundried Tomato ‘Pasta’

This is one of my ABSOLUTE FAVOURITE pasta recipes, so I’ve been very excited to keto-fy it. The strong flavours of the spicy chorizo and sundried tomatoes, make this a great way for shirataki noodle sceptics to give them a try, as you really can’t […]

Miso and Beef Broth with Wakame Seaweed & Seared Tuna

Miso and Beef Broth with Wakame Seaweed & Seared Tuna

I wanted something really light, simple and nourishing to break my 20h hour fast last week, so made up this lovely bone broth and white miso soup with wakame seaweed and seared tuna, topped with spring onions (in hindsight, a few too many as I […]
