Mushrooms are so good at guzzling fat. You can bathe them in butter or oil during cooking. They will happily absorb it all and carry on as if nothing happened.
Mushrooms, therefore, are perfect for a fat-bomb-type meal. They are low in carbs, with only 2g net carbs per 100g (3.5oz). We will infuse them with huge amounts of fat for a fantastic Keto meal. Keep reading “Keto mushroom bake”
Keto Mascarpone Mousse is the upgraded version of my most popular recipe – Keto Chocolate Mousse.
Since it was first published back in 2013, it’s been getting more visits, likes and shares than any of my other recipes.
Why is it so popular? Perhaps because it’s simple, quick and massively high in fat. And chocolate-flavoured. Keep reading “Keto mascarpone mousse”

Are your mornings hectic?
They are for most of us. Getting yourself and your family ready for a new day. So many things to organise and remember. And no spare time to cook.
Quick breakfast options like cereal or toast are pure carbs. So how about making some low-carb granola bars? Great for a quick breakfast on the go. Or perhaps a mid-morning snack with your coffee. Keep reading “Low-Carb Breakfast Bar”
Are you bored with eggs? They are the obvious choice for a low-carb breakfast. If only they were a bit less bland.
But they are low in carbs, high in protein and fat, packed with vitamins and nutrients. So let’s not give up on eggs. Let’s make them more interesting instead.
I like to think of eggs as a base for other ingredients. Kind of like rice in Chinese cuisine, or pasta in Italian (that’s remembering my pre-low-carb days, of course). Keep reading “Super-Simple Low-Carb Breakfast – Scrambled Eggs”
Do you miss potatoes on your low-carb diet?
I used to miss them so much. Problem is, they are so versatile. So once you cut out potatoes, you also cut out fries, crisps, mash, roast potatoes… Sigh.
Don’t despair. There is another way.
Potato might be the most popular root vegetable, but it isn’t the only one.
Its siblings in the root vegetable family are less famous, but taste just as good.

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”
Do you like asparagus? Some green vegetables are boring. But not asparagus!
It has a strong and interesting taste. Its carb content is low – 3g net carbs per 100g. Serving it steamed with some butter and salt is enough to make a wonderful side dish.
The perfect time to have asparagus is now, while it is in season. Keep reading “Low-carb quiche with asparagus, goat cheese and Parma ham”
