Apple and Cinnamon Cake

Apple & Cinnamon Cake

Another apple and cinnamon recipe today – it’s hardly surprising as we usually have a huge surplus of apples in the garden at this time of year. Apples aren’t the best of things for a Low Carb diet, but once in a while is OK. A portion is around 18 carbs, and for some that might […]

Apple and Cinnamon Muffins

Apple and Cinnamon Muffins

Apple and Cinnamon – flavours that say Wintertime and Christmas! A perfect partner to a warm glass of mulled wine, especially if you like outdoor gatherings for Autumnal festivities like Halloween or Guy Fawkes night. Like our other muffins, these can be whipped up in a matter of minutes, but are best left to cool down until […]

Low Carb Cottage Pie

Low Carb Cottage Pie

Autumn is here, and as the nights start to draw in our tastebuds begin to yearn for something heartwarming. Cottage pie is a firm favourite for us throughout the darker half of the yea, but clearly loading up with mashed potato wasn’t going to work. Instead, the mashed topping is made with cauliflower, sour cream […]

Coconut Cherry Muffins

Coconut Almond and Cherry Muffins

After making a selection of muffins for my husband, I wanted to make something completely different and special! Before going Low Carb he used to love eating Bakewell Tart.  These just hit the spot nicely, although I can’t keep him out of the bread bin, where I keep them. Ingredients 160g of Carbquik 40g of […]

Low Carb Seed Bread

Low Carb Bread

We giveth you your daily bread – seed bread that is. We started out buying Sukrin’s breadmix – but it is just so expensive, so we spent some time to find something that was somewhere close to enjoyable. In fact we like this recipe so much it now our regular breadbin resident. It works with […]

Coffee and Walnut Muffins

Coffee & Walnut Muffins

Coffee and Walnut – a match made in heaven, so why shouldn’t you enjoy it on a low carb diet – even more awesome with a little blob of clotted cream. Ingredients 170g of Carbquik 50g of Ground Almonds 50g of Almond Flour 30g of melted butter 1tsp baking powder Truvia (sweetener to taste) I […]


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. Oh, and the chilli content […]


Awesome Low Carb Chocolate Cheesecake

This cheesecake really is awesome according to my wife, and her chums. My cheesecake is famous in our street, and so it was one of the first things I had to convert to low carb in order to avoid being lynched by a gang of marauding chocoholic women. One thing many low carb recipes shy […]


Low carb alcohol free Irish Whiskey

I know – the title sounds like a frankenstein invention, but bear with me. In my search for the an almost zero carb milky (well, at least it’s white, cold, and feels milky) drink, I have found that the Alpro Unsweetened Almond milk the clear winner – well sort of. Not to be confused with […]
