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 […]

Travelling to Italy on a Low Carb Diet

I got back from Rome yesterday where I was attending a business event. Italian food is wonderful, but most of the staple dishes you think of when you think of Italian cuisine are simply off the menu if you’re going to stick to a low carb ketogenic diet. When you’re going low carb you can’t […]

Purging Carbs From the Kitchen Cupboards

I don’t like wasting food. If there’s food in the cupboard it needs to be eaten at some point by somebody. However if you’re following a low carb diet you quickly discover that a lot of the food in the cupboard simply is not compatible. Flour? Not unless it’s almond or coconut. Pasta? Not a […]

Home Cooked Lasagna With Homemade Roux

Spiralizing Vegetables To Replace Pasta

I love pasta, but it’s heavy in calories and carbohydrates. Pretty much every single diet out there suggests cutting calorie and carb intake. So how on earth can a pasta aficionado be happy with what they eat, while also cutting down on calories etc? I’ve always maintained that it would be impossible for me to […]

Spaghetti Carbonara

I’ve always liked carbonara. It’s one of those dishes that isn’t complicated, but is incredibly tasty. I guess it proves that you don’t need elaborate “fussy” recipes to get good, tasty food. It’s not a super lean or low calorie dish, but it’s good quality food and free of processed junk. And no, you don’t […]

More Kitchen Gadgets!

When I tried to make pasta for the first time a couple of weeks ago I immediately ran into a small, yet quite annoying problem. Being able to roll out pastry requires a rolling pin. Sure, I was able to use a wine bottle, but it’s not exactly ideal. So I added a rolling pin […]
