Thai fish noodle soup

I love a nice thai green or red curry – who doesn’t – but sometimes they are a bit heavy, particularly when you start adding more coconut and yoghurt. For some time I have made a noodle soup version, which I find equally enjoyable, and because there is more liquid, it is more filling for […]


Lower carb Thai red curry paste

Shop bought green curry paste is fine if you are in a hurry, or don’t have access to the raw ingredients locally. However, many commercial products contain added sugar, maize starch, and other undesirables in an attempt to make it appeal more to the British palate and the supermarket shelves.

Low carb chocolate muffins

These are so easy to put together, and are the perfect partner to a mid-morning coffee and cream. There are dozens of muffin recipes out there and a few chocolate ones, and most use just almond flour. I wanted something just a little more luxurious, and filling without busting my carb allowance completely, and I […]
