LOW CARB BRAISED LAMB WITH BUTTER COURGETTES

low carb braised lamb with butter courgettes

A perfectly keto, low carb lamb dish with courgettes that is full of flavour and extremely easy to make. Braising meat is something I absolutely adore. It takes literally minutes of involvement and then you can leave the meat to simmer away for a long time while you prepare something else or just take a break. There is absolutely nothing difficult about this dish and the result is succulent, tender meat that will melt in your mouth. No fancy equipment required, either. Any pot will do, although I wholeheartedly recommend a Continue reading LOW CARB BRAISED LAMB WITH BUTTER COURGETTES

LOW CARB KETO ROSEMARY CRACKERS

Low carb keto rosemary crackers with no egg in sight! By now you will know that my love for bread is always simmering in the background. Although I have learned to do without, there are times when bread is a must. For me at least.

Thinking it can’t be that difficult to make, I searched the internet for inspiration, but Continue reading LOW CARB KETO ROSEMARY CRACKERS

There is something truly summer-y and holiday-y about lighting up the fuel and cooking some meat and vegetables outside in the sunshine. From the smoke filled air, to that smell of cooking meat, you cannot help but salivate as your senses prepare for a feast. I’m not a huge meat lover, but even I get excited about the irresistible aroma of a barbeque. So why Continue reading LOW CARB BARBEQUED CHICKEN WITH PEPERONATA

LOW CARB OCTOPUS AND CELERY SALAD

low carb octopus and celery salad

A low carb starter of octopus and celery that will impress your dinner guests yet is pure simplicity! I made a short trip to my fishmonger’s this morning not really knowing what I was going to buy. I just knew I wanted to make a fish starter that I could prepare in advance. Thank goodness Roberto exists! He must be the best fishmonger in the world. Not only does he only stock fresh local fish and ethically caught fish from further afield (no dodgy imports in his shop!), he is also brilliant at Continue reading LOW CARB OCTOPUS AND CELERY SALAD
