If you’ve heard about the keto diet and want to know more, read on and I’ll tell you about it. But first, I’ll tell you a little about myself and how I came to eat a ketogenic diet and started fasting. When I experienced the benefits, I knew it was something I needed to share. […]
This breakfast tastes so indulgent it’s hard to believe it’s nutrient packed and healthy! The creamy coconut milk balances out the rich bitterness of the cacao powder and you can adjust the natural sweetener content to suit your taste buds. Chia seeds are the main event here with their high protein and fibre content they are great to work into a keto diet.
I love how quick and easy this meal comes together. It’s very high in protein and healthy fats which leave me feeling full and satisfied. Saute the chicken and bell peppers together and serve it with cauliflower rice and some avocado to make it a complete meal. The dish makes for great leftovers too!
The one thing you so often hear that people miss on a keto diet is crunch! This balanced meal brings a little protein with the chicken, creamy fats from the mint yoghurt dip and healthy serving of low carb veggies packed with flavor and that satisfying crunch we so often miss. You also have a herby crisp chicken skin here so it delivers crunch on both fronts!
Most desserts are off-limits in the keto diet, so it’s relieving to find some alternatives to the real deal! This banana bread is super moist, light and full of flavor without all the carbs. The cake is made with almond and coconut flour which gives the bread a delicious nuttiness. Before baking, the loaf is topped with unsweetened coconut flakes which toast nicely in the oven. It will be difficult to only have one slice!
This easy all-in-one meal is one of my favourites as it is a fresh take on a traditional cooked breakfast and also saves you time and effort in the kitchen. We’ve all been there – trying to cook a big brunch and having to keep your attention all over the kitchen with bacon under the grill, eggs in a pan, greens steaming and veggies cooking separately. Timings can easy slip and you end up with a mediocre breakfast after all that flapping. Well stress no more! This all-in-one method is the answer and you’ll never go back to the traditional way again.
Did you know you can create the same crispiness in a chicken wing in the oven as in as fryer? These wings are super simple to make and only require a few ingredients. The secret ingredient? Baking powder. The wings are coated with baking powder and salt which breaks down the proteins in the skin helping them to brown.. The wings are then baked in a low temp oven to render the fat and then baked at a high temp to allow the skin to become ultra crispy. Last, but not least, the wings are tossed in a delicious buttery, sriracha sauce. They’re just the right amount of heat and a perfect fit to any keto diet. These are great for dinner paired with low carb veggies or as an appetizer for a weekend party.
The flavor combination of these brownies is incredibly moreish with the tart raspberries and fudgy rich chocolate being perfectly complemented by the distinctive taste of pistachio. The outside of the brownie cracks as you take a bite and reveals a soft chocolate middle with crunchy pistachios and zings of raspberry. These healthy brownies are grain and dairy free and with under 3.5 net carbs a slice they are ideally suited to a ketogenic or paleo lifestyle! They are great with coffee as snack or make a delicious dessert lightly warmed in the oven served with a dollop of coconut cream. They are also great for dinner parties as they look beautiful but require minimal effort and expertise. Serve them in the centre of the table and everyone can get involved and grab a slice. The brownies will keep in an air tight container for 3 days… if they last that long!
