Recipes I've Shared:
Low carb, gluten free hot breakfast or supper 'porridge'.
This can also be altered with the addition of dried fruit, chocolate chips, cocoa powder, fruit jam, sweetener or other sugary substances. Just make sure you add the additions to your daily allowances as most will affect your carb count.

This is a dense, filling low carb chocolate cake made with nut flours instead of high carb foods such as rice flours etc. Omitting the chocolate topping will reduce the carbs even further. This can also be adapted to other ingredients such as adding different chopped nuts, or increasing the carbs with chocolate chips or the addition of berries.
Sweetener to the equivalent of up to a 1/4 cup of sugar can be added. I find that if you don't have a sweet tooth lower amounts can be used.
A wheat free chocolate muffin. This version made with sugar.
This is an average fairly standard sized english chip shop kebab with a 9 inch pitta and salad. Please make personal adjustments for sauces/mayo etc.
