Why you need a keto support group

My weekly online keto support group is a favourite hangout spot every single week. It's where I get to be a part of their keto journey, and you know what? I created this space for all the awesome keto lovers out there to find the support and encouragement they need. Living a keto lifestyle in a world filled with junky, sugar-filled, processed food feels like surviving on some crazy planet with poisonous gas and only a tiny oxygen mask!But the great news is, we've got an oxygen-filled safe haven ...

Self-Care is not selfish, and your ketones will love you for it

In this crazy, fast-paced world we live in, it's super important to make self-care a priority. Don't worry, it's not selfish or indulgent—quite the opposite! Taking small moments in your day to breathe and destress can have incredible benefits for your mind, body, and soul. Not only does it help dial down your stress hormones (like cortisol) and bring down your blood sugars, but it also gives your ketones a chance to soar. That means you'll have more energy, sharper thinking, and an overall se...

By adding a few creative and delicious recipes into your morning routine, you can kickstart your eating window with a burst of flavour and nourishment that will keep you energized all day.

Why I hate commercial keto products

One thing that really gets my goat, are the products labelled “Keto” that loom at me from supermarket shelves and specialist grocery stores. Apart from the fact that they cost way more than comparable mainstream products, just because they have the keto label slapped on them, I’m always very skeptical as to whether they really are good for a keto diet. Okay, so something else I need to clarify is what I consider keto. I usually run into trouble with the keto community because I am on the f...

Flavoured butters

I love the smell of butter sizzling in a pan with the added smell of herbs wafting in the air. That’s the yummy pleasure I have every time I use one of my herb butters to cook with. Anything from making scrambled eggs with a good dollop of garlic and parsley butter, to steak finished off with cowboy dipping sauce  – delicious mix of butter, lemon, garlic, mustard, paprika, parsley, chives, thyme, crushed red pepper flakes and black pepper. What’s not to love?A herb garden is the gift ...

Meal Prepping

Meal planning and prepping seems to be such a bore because who wants to have a regimented schedule to eat by? If I had a lot of time to prepare and cook meals, I may feel the same way but who has time these days? You don’t want to get home, tired after a long day and fall into the “Let’s just get take away tonight” trap and boom, you are digging into all the wrong stuff. The antidote to this is being organised and yes, meal planning is one of those things. However, it isn’t a plan...

Emergency Kit

The kids aren’t ready for school, you are running late and the youngest has forgotten to take her hockey stick and as you bundle everyone into the car, your needs are last on the priority list. You get to work with minutes to spare, or not and you sink into your office chair and breathe a sigh of relief. As you day gets going you suddenly realize that you left your lunch, a beautiful bottled salad with smoked salmon, cream cheese and capers (yes, you actually made that and no, it didn’t take...
