Lambs liver and olive pate

I've been trying to take the advice of Paleo experts by eating 'nose to tail'. It wasn't easy to put a pack of lamb livers in my shopping basket, but now that I have I must say that I'm very pleasantly surprised!

Blackberry and honey sauce

Just conjured this up one day after I came back from walking the dog with a bag full of freshly picked wild blackberries. Turned out great and I ended up pouring the sauce over good quality sausages, and ate for lunch with a side of boiled baby potatoes. Delish!

Starch-free lasagna (9.4 net carbs per serve)

Why not try a lasagna without the 'lasagna' sheets... LOL. This dish is best served re-heated the next day. I have a real passion for the flavour of celery and celeriac, and think it goes beautifully with beef :-)

Chicken, Broccoli and Mushroom Burgers (3.4 net carbs each)

When someone roasts a chicken, I'm always up for a leg or a thigh. But chicken breast can sit in my fridge for days without any interest from me. So I'm always looking for ways to turn boring old breast into something deliciously juicy and scrumptious.

Avocado omelette (2.9 net carbs)

Officially my favourite breakfast of all time. The flavour, the creaminess, it's definitely worth getting out of bed for!

And I timed myself today, it only takes 6 minutes to make :-)

Low-carb 'burger sized' fishcakes (3 net carbs per serve)

I've calculated this recipe on the basis of having cooked the fishcakes in a combination of olive oil and butter. However, they are also lovely cooked in a virgin coconut oil.

No Flour Pizza Crust (8 net carbs per serve)

This is my adaptation of a wonderful cauliflower pizza crust I found online. Tried it, LOVED it. It's completely ruined me for bread-based pizza now.

Starch-free Veggie Burgers (Net carbs each = 6.5)

I just couldn't find a recipe for low carb veggie burgers. Some claimed to be, but they always included oatmeal, potato or flour etc. These have none of the above. Pure, unadulterated low-carb or no-carb ingredients.

If you count all the grating and chopping the preparation time for this recipe increases by around 30 minutes. I've calculated prep time on the basis that all ingredients were already chopped/grated.

Total carbs per burger = 10.1
Net carbs (minus fibre) = 6.5

Avocado Veggie Crackers

When my mother told me she makes this recipe for lunch every day I didn't think it sounded too delicious. But then she made it for me and... yummy... the combination of flavors is surprisingly delicious and very healthy! Eat as a snack or in larger portions for lunch.

Creamy Shrimp Curry

I adapted this recipe from one that originally used cream. Instead I have used soy milk and a teaspoon cornflour for thickening

Orange Ginger Pork Chops

A tangy and sweet recipe. To save calories, marinade overnight and throw out extra marinade after cooking.

Low carb favourites
I am loving low carb living! For the first time ever my cravings are gone, my need for huge portions is gone, and my tastebuds are alive with excitement. Real food tastes amazing when it isn't blunted down by the blandness of starch.
