Ok, so I didn't exactly live up to my promises of more recipes etc did I?! Sorry about that, I'm going to be honest though, it just isn't going to happen. I like making food and I certainly love eating food, I'm just not that excited to write about food or work out the quantities … Continue reading Believe and achieve!
I know strict ketoers don't eat sweet treats but I'm not strict and if I want something sweet I'd rather it was still low carb ... so I will continue to make little yummies that are less naughty than the alternatives available 🙂 I hope you will enjoy these as much as I did! If … Continue reading Low Carb Jaffa Cakes

Ok, I'm going to admit this now ... I had no idea how high in calories ribs were until I've just come to work out the recipe! These were so yummy my friend and I polished off a whole rack between us which I think would've worked out approx 600 calories each, as it happens … Continue reading Low Carb Pork Ribs
I find this dish (dare I say it) better than my old chum made with potatoes! It's creamy and comforting and down right delicious, rather hard to stick to portion control I'll be honest. I tend to use half a celeriac at a time and keep the leftovers for lunch the following day but the … Continue reading Low Carb Celeriac Dauphinoise

There have been so many times where I've simply not bothered because I was too tired or thought it would take forever and that's just not the case. Who knew that decent food could be … Continue reading Garlic Cabbage with Bacon
I've made it my mission to spread the Keto love and try to persuade friends of mine who are looking to lose a few lbs to jump on the low carb high fat wagon. The same as I did at the beginning they all think it's another fad diet with restrictions and misery that is … Continue reading Keto Chicken and Bacon Parcels
One of my favourite go-to dishes is a fish pie, there’s something so homely about it and I’m a massive fan of fish which I guess helps! Usually I would add peas but I discovered, to my horror, that they aren’t keto-friendly ... slightly mortified but I’ll get over it eventually! You can use whichever … Continue reading Low Carb Fish Pie

The Winter months have definitely arrived and that means the end of salads and cold meals! I work outdoors all day so when I come home feeling like an ice cube there is nothing better than a bowl of steamy soup (and no it doesn’t have to be Heinz!). My Cheesy Puff Rolls are amazing as … Continue reading Creamy Mushroom Soup
