I often get asked about the recipe for these delicious treats. When you switch to a paleo or ketogenic way of eating, it is often difficult to come to terms with losing many of your favourite snacks. Finding clean alternatives to snack on is usually very difficult because they either taste nothing like the original or just downright awful! Bounty bars were one of my favourite chocolates, so I was very happy when I first found a recipe for them.
I have no idea where the original recipe came from, but I have made these so many times and changed the recipe a few times, so I will share my own version of these, which I am using now. I love them!Continue reading
One of the first things I learned when I started a low carb diet 2 years ago, was that preparation is key.
Benjamin Franklin said “If you fail to plan, you are planning to fail!” and this is so true when it comes to changing your diet because you are literally changing your way of life. Everything needs to change. From the way you shop to the way you socialise, and it’s not only about what you cook, but also about the way you cook.
I see many people starting this new ketogenic way of life, struggling to meet their macros or stay within the limits of their nutritional goals. They could all benefit from menu planning. It makes such a huge difference and really makes life easier.
I used to take part in Meal Plan Mondays many years ago when I first opened Nemo’s Kitchen, back when I ate an extremely unhealthy diet and ignored my food intolerance. Nemo’s Kitchen has been resurrected, now in a much more health conscious format!Continue reading
Since starting Dr Myhill’s recommended diet, I have had quite a few requests for a basic meal plan. Many people find it hard to navigate through all the information that is out there, specially us spoonies with brain fog! I have had a while to work through the relative chapters in the book and have been on this journey for 6 weeks now. I am starting to feel the benefits!
This is the very first meal plan outline I gave my mum after I got Dr Myhill’s book. It helped her to wrap her head around this new way of eating and build my meals in a way that was not too daunting for her. I hope you will find it helpful too!Continue reading
