ULTIMATE KETO LOW CARB BACON CHEESE BURGER AND CHIPS

Ultimate Keto Low Carb Bacon Cheese Burger and Chips

Ultimate Keto Low Carb Bacon Cheese Burger and Chips: 7g carbs without chips, 20g carbs with. This is as ketogenic as you can get, for something that tastes so authentic. The butternut squash chips take the dish to another level, in my humble opinion, and are worth the extra carbs. Especially if you have no other carbs for the day. Totally doable. On the other hand, munch monster isn’t keen on  vegetable ‘chips’ because they never become crunchy like real chips. So he’d rather save the carbs for something else – cake and/or Continue reading ULTIMATE KETO LOW CARB BACON CHEESE BURGER AND CHIPS

KETO BEEF HOTPOT WITH SWEDE AND BUTTERNUT SQUASH

keto beef hotpot with swede and butternut squash

Keto Beef Hotpot with Swede and Butternut Squash: easy, delicious and a great winter warmer. Just 12.5g carbs. This may sound like a lot of carbohydrates for a ketogenic dinner. But it’s a satisfying, rich, all-in-one meal and about 1/2 of a keto daily carb allowance (20-30g carbs daily is the norm). If you want less carbs, just reduce the amount of swede (rutabaga) and/or butternut squash. Or you can omit the peas (-1.25g carbs per serving). My Keto Beef Hotpot with Swede and Butternut Squash makes my ketohusband (aka munch monster) Continue reading KETO BEEF HOTPOT WITH SWEDE AND BUTTERNUT SQUASH

KETO BEEF SHIN WITH CREAMED BRUSSELS SPROUTS

keto beef shin with creamed brussels sprouts

Keto Beef Shin with Creamed Brussels Sprouts: beautiful, comfort food at its best and only 8.5g carbs per serving. How can anyone resist meat when it’s so sweetly succulent and tender? Shin, also known as shank, isn’t a popular cut of meat. But that’s probably because many people regard it as a hard, chewy meat. What they perhaps don’t realise, is that the tough connective tissue that runs through it brakes down when cooked for a long time over low heat. Braising, or slow cooking, results in a tender, moist, richly flavoured Continue reading KETO BEEF SHIN WITH CREAMED BRUSSELS SPROUTS

CRISPY BAKED CALAMARI & PRAWNS WITH AVOCADO SALSA

crispy baked calamari & prawns with avocado salsa

Crispy Baked Calamari & Prawns with Avocado Salsa the healthy ketogenic way: 12g carbs each portion. Calamari with prawns and chips is a popular dish, especially in Italy and surrounding Mediterranean countries. The locals eat it often. Holiday makers can’t get enough of it. Totally delicious. But neither healthy nor ketogenic. It is full of unhealthy fats from deep frying and it’s carbohydrate-rich thanks to the batter. Not to mention the carbs overload from potatoes. So how does one ketofy and  healthify this oh-so-yummy dish? Well, chips are a big keto no-no, so out they go. Continue reading CRISPY BAKED CALAMARI & PRAWNS WITH AVOCADO SALSA

ASIAN CHICKEN WITH CAULIFLOWER & BROCCOLI PURÉE

asian chicken with cauliflower & broccoli purée

Asian Chicken with Cauliflower & Broccoli Purée: less than 5g carbs, delightful and super quick. Working and balancing family life, as well as eating ketogenic, isn’t always easy. My best tip for an easier life is best summed up with one word: prepping. Prepping is key to variety, enjoyment, simplicity and time saving. You’re more likely to stick to keto if you’re not eating the same food over and over again. There is only so much bacon and eggs that one can devour every day before getting sick of it! If you get used to Continue reading ASIAN CHICKEN WITH CAULIFLOWER & BROCCOLI PURÉE

LOW CARB BLACK BEAN SPAGHETTI CARBONARA

low carb black bean spaghetti carbonara

Low Carb Black Bean Spaghetti Carbonara tastes wickedly indulgent but it’s only 3.8g carbs per serving. Don’t you just love classics that you can turn into keto-friendly dishes? Spaghetti Carbonara was one of my favourite Italian recipes. With fatty pancetta, cream and Parmesan as the core ingredients, it was always going to be a good one for LCHF lovers. Except that wheat spaghetti had to go and something low carb had to come in. The obvious first choice was zoodles, but the carbs count was pretty high and the result was far from impressive. Shirataki Continue reading LOW CARB BLACK BEAN SPAGHETTI CARBONARA

LOW CARB ZUCCHIZZA – QUEENKETO PIZZA

low carb zucchizza - queenketo pizza

Low Carb Zucchizza – Queenketo Pizza: my easy version tastes like A REAL PIZZA! Cauliflower base? Nope. Not for me. Cutting florets… bits flying everywhere, using a blender to turn the florets to ‘rice’, microwaving, waiting for it to cool… way too much faff for my liking. And never mind the smell! Nope. Tried it. Several times. Gave up. Fat Head pizza? Nope. Not for me. I tried countless times to get mozzarella to melt in the microwave, yet every time I ended up with a chewing gum-like ball that would not mix with anything.
