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,…

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.

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…

I have made paleo pancakes before, and they are great but because the main thickener is coconut flour, you have to wait for it to thicken the mixture before cooking. I have adapted my previous recipe to include more desiccated coconut. The desiccated coconut…
