Middle-Eastern Lamb Meatball Soup With Herbs And Greens (Keto, Low-Carb, Wahls, Whole 30, AIP)

If you've been following me over at Instagram you probably know that I struggle on and off with IBS-like symptoms - in particular indigestion, gas, bloating and cramping. Some days, I can eat all the garlic and brussels sprouts and cheese without feeling anything. And then, sometimes, there's barely anything I can have without bloating…

Cacao-Spirulina Energy Balls With Adaptogens (Keto, Paleo, Vegan)

When I first started eating a ketogenic diet, all I wanted from my fat balls (or fatbombs, if you like), was for them to fill me up and satisfy my sweet tooth without breaking the "carb bank". But as the months went by, I started to move away from obsessing over my macros to looking…

Spanakorizo – Greek Spinach “Risotto” With Fennel and Bone Marrow (Keto, AIP, Paleo, Wahls, Whole30)

When most people think of Greek food, they think fried calamari, tzatziki and/or Greek salad. But, truth is, there are tons of traditional Greek recipes that are filled with flavor and incredibly easy to adapt to a grain-free and even dairy-free lifestyle!

Fatty Coconut Energy Balls Two-Ways (Low-Carb, Dairy-Free, Paleo)

I recently had to accept the sad truth that super low-carb fat bombs (as promoted in the keto community) do very little for my hunger or cravings, as fat by itself is not very filling a food. And, while some folks like to argue that "fat doesn't make you fat" and that calories don't matter,…

Spinach Salad with Persimmon, Pomegranate and Goat Cheese (Low-Carb, Vegetarian, Grain-Free)

This is the perfect fall salad! The homemade pomegranate vinaigrette coats the baby spinach, sweet pomegranates, salty goat cheese and pumpkin seeds like a dream! It is a great salad to serve with your Thanksgiving dinner as well, or to eat as a quick lunch, like I did. For the cheese, I used Humboldt Fog,…

Super-Quick Zucchini Zoodles with Oysters and Spinach (Keto, AIP, Low-Carb, Paleo)

Zoodles (=zucchini noodles) are all the rage these days!ย Now, I wanna make it clear that - no matter what some people say! - I don't think they're a worthy alternative to pasta (it's a texture thing). But, they're wonderful in their own right and a terrificย low-carb, paleo-friendly choice for a side dish or main meal.…
