Obeo Need Your Support

I’ve mentioned Obeo a few times in the past. They’re an Irish company that produces organic waste bags. Unlike the standard biodegradable bags that you’d put in a kitchen food waste caddy, the Obeo bags replace the bin completely. So instead of having to deal with the messy and smelly bin you simply dump the […]

Low Carb Pasta (Sort of)

When you’re on a low carb diet there are a number of foods that are simply not on the menu. Pasta is a prime example. And that really hurts! You can, of course, replace pasta with spiralized vegetables. So, instead of spaghetti you can serve that tasty pasta sauce with courgetti. But what if you […]

One Year Doing Low Carb

I started the low carb / keto diet thing roughly one year ago. Have I lost weight? Yes. The graph above shows that I’ve made reasonable progress in terms of losing weight. Since mid-January, however, the weight loss has more or less stalled and I’ve been fluctuating up and down quite a bit. I probably […]

Home Cooked Sauces are Simple and Tasty

I’ve always liked adding a bit of sauce to meat and poultry. A bit of sauce can make a relatively bland dish much tastier and interesting. However up until recently I wouldn’t have bothered making a lot of the sauces from scratch when I can buy them readymade in the shop. But I discovered that […]

Misbehaving While on Holidays

Jazzing up Dinner With Cooking Experiments

While I enjoy cooking I’ll be one of the first to admit that I avoid complicated recipes. If it involves magical incantations it’s not going on the menu. If it involves ingredients I can’t get locally or online then it’s off the menu. Recently, however, I’ve been trying to get myself out of my “comfort […]

Low Carb Burger in Central London

Back in January I posted about having a low carb burger in LA. This weekend I’m in London, which, while packed to the gills with restaurants, probably isn’t famous either for burgers or for low carb options. A couple of minutes walk away from Leicester Square I came across Byron. They’re a burger restaurant chain […]
