Flourless Oat Pancakes with Sugar Free Salted Caramel

Imagine porridge, but packed with protein. This isn’t my usual grain free, low carb breakfast as it contains oats, BUT for those who can handle a few carbs here and there and especially for kids, this is a wonderful recipe. It’s what I feed my daughter for breakfast at least a couple of days a week. Even on school days. It’s quick and so much better than…

Cauliflower Houmous

I miss houmous. I can’t really eat chick peas, I do have them from time to time but I suffer from slightly swollen eyes and lips and an itchy throat when I do.

Ingredients: 400-500g lamb mince (you could also use beef) 3 cloves garlic – crushed ½ onion finely diced (or grated or lazily…

Salmon & Spinach Tart with Low Carb Pie Crust

I love a tart. Pastry and my tummy don’t get on too well. I’m not coeliac, I just don’t feel great after eating flour. So pastry – although I make it often for clients, has had to change. I am a low carb convert. I fall off the wagon occasionally but I reckon I’m 90% there with food that makes me feel wonderful inside and out. The first time I…
