As I was hosting the event this month, I was able to stipulate I would prefer the recipes to be as low carb as possible. There were some fantastic recipes this month. I would like to thank everyone who submitted their low carb baking, knowing…

Paleo Scotch Eggs

Pepperoni Pizza Bites

Fancy pizza but can’t have it? Try these pepperoni pizza bites. Enjoy all the flavour of pepperoni, tomato paste, cheese and tomatoes, or try your favourite topping. So instead of having the stodgy, wheat based pizza base, just load your toppings onto the pepperoni slices. They are so filling, you will only want a few….

Microwave Salmon and Lime

We should all be eating more salmon, more omega 3′s to keep our 3:6 balance in check. Microwave salmon is incredibly easy and fast. By using the microwave to cook salmon, it keeps the salmon moist, and it stops the house from smelling like salmon for a couple of days.  My microwave is 800W, so…

Leeks with Garlic and Cream Cheese

Leeks – love them or hate them? I love them but some aren’t so keen, so it’s great to find another way to jazz them up a bit. Leeks are part of the onion and garlic family apparently having antibiotic, anti fungal and antiviral properties. Full of niacin, folic acid, riboflavin, pyridoxine, Vitamin A, C,…

Chocolate Grain Free Granola

Once I made this Chocolate Grain Free Granola (or muesli), my children won’t stop eating it.  They ate it first with cold milk, then as winter is setting in, they decided to heat their milk in the microwave and eat it warm, and then they sprinkled it on berries for an after dinner dessert with coconut cream….

Smoked Salmon Scrambled Eggs

A great idea for a low carb breakfast is smoked salmon scrambled eggs with cream cheese and leafy greens. Eggs for me is my go-to breakfast. It is quick, easy and nutritious.

Parsnip Chips

You may think parsnips are off the menu when you go low carb as they are a starchy root vegetable – but you can have them as parsnip chips because a little parsnip goes a long way. By shredding them and frying in coconut oil, 1 or 2 parsnips can be turned into about 3-5…
