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 EGGPLANT ZUCCHINI PARMIGIANA

Low Carb Eggplant Zucchini Parmigiana:  an old-time Italian classic transformed and ketofied to reduce carbs, but still yummy! The classic Parmigiana is an Italian favourite and extremely well-known dish. I am sure that Italian foodies will cringe at my ketofication. But a girl’s got to do what a girl’s got to do to make her favourite recipes keto-friendly, right? And so I have. To make a Classic Parmigiana you use aubergines (eggplants) that you need to coat in batter and deep-fry. I’ve used aubergines together with courgettes (zucchini) because the latter contains fewer carbs. Instead of coating them in batter and frying Continue reading LOW CARB EGGPLANT ZUCCHINI PARMIGIANA

Low Carb Keto Cauliflower Cheese: a recipe that will make you love this vegetable again. And just 4g carbs each serving. I can guess what you’re thinking… cauliflowers again, bo-ring! I admit that following the ketogenic regime has its difficulties.  Yes, there are very few vegetables that are classed as low carb enough to satisfy ketosis. True, cauliflowers pop up again and again in everything from mash to pizza base. And yes, I get sick of cauliflowers too at times. But NO, this recipe is far from boring. In fact, I promise you that Continue reading LOW CARB KETO CAULIFLOWER CHEESE

LOW CARB PERFECT KETO FISHCAKES

Low Carb Perfect Keto Fishcakes: learn how easy it is to make them and you’ll never buy packaged ones again. I must admit that, when my children were small and a very long time before I woke up to the ketogenic diet and healthier foods, I used to buy frozen fishcakes and chips for them once a week or so. I thought what I did was healthier for my kids than McD or other take away rubbish. What a gross misconception that was! When they were at school, my son and daughter had a habit Continue reading LOW CARB PERFECT KETO FISHCAKES

LOW CARB SPINACH AND RICOTTA BAKE

Low Carb Spinach and Ricotta Bake: ketogenic, healthy, mouth watering and easy to make. Spinach and ricotta are a match made in heaven. Individually, these two ingredients are totally versatile and you can use them to make all sorts of healthy dishes, both savoury and sweet. Packaged ricotta usually has a long eat-before-date and frozen spinach is just as good as the fresh version. So I tend to have both lingering around as a backup for I-don’t-know-what-to-cook days or I-can’t-be-bothered-to-go-to-the-shops days. Yesterday was one of those days. I looked in my fridge for inspiration Continue reading LOW CARB SPINACH AND RICOTTA BAKE
