Ketosis and alcohol - can you drink on a keto diet?

Ketosis and alcohol: can you drink on keto?

As the festive party season fast approaches, a common question raised by my clients is ‘Am I able to have an alcoholic drink whilst on the ketogenic diet?’ So I thought I’d put together all of my thoughts around ketosis and alcohol and share it with the rest of my followers.   For starters, let take a look at what happens to our body when we consume alcohol. When we drink alcohol, it gets absorbed very quickly into our bloodstream via our stomach and small intestine. Alcohol is toxic and as a result, the body tries to get rid of it as...

Keto Easter Egg Recipe

For many, Easter wouldn’t be complete without a chocolate egg. Weather you’re keto, low carb or just looking for a healthy sugar free alternative for your family, you may, like me, struggle to find a keto easter egg out there to purchase in the shops or online.   After extensively searching for a sugar free, low carb, equally delicious version, I myself had almost given up and came to the conclusion that this tradition would be no more for me and my ketogenic lifestyle. It also made me very aware of all the junk added to the ones marketed directly at children....

Keto Chocolate Muffins: The Ultimate Craving Kicker!

The main thing I love about being keto is the food is delicious! There's always low carb alternatives to your favourite foods. But the one alternative I’ve always struggled with is chocolate cake! I’ve made many attempts to create the ultimate chocolate cake. They’ve been dry, rock hard, crumbly and some just totally inedible. That is until today. Enter keto chocolate muffins!   This morning my 3 year old son and I were playing around with some ingredients in the kitchen and together we struck it seriously lucky! We’ve managed to create some seriously moist, squishy, chocolatey and down right moorish chocolate...

This blog post is an update on her journey so far.   4 months ago I started out on a journey to try and help overcome some inner demons and battles, rebuild a healthy relationship with...

Delicious Keto Ice Cream

Sugar Free Keto Ice Cream

Ketogenic food is super tasty, but the one thing i really miss is ice cream! Nothing fancy, just a nice creamy bowl of vanilla, with my weapon of choice - a teeny tiny teaspoon, to make it last longer!   There's a huge lack of low carb and sugar free versions in the supermarkets in the UK. The ones that are available are still quite high in carbs and when you find it difficult to put the tub down, your carb limit for the day can quickly disappear within a few spoonfuls.   I literally dreamt up this recipe one morning whilst I began...

This amazing blog post and recipe has been written and shared by one of my clients, Jenna I hope you all enjoy it as much as i have! Spoons at the ready!!!   I don’t know about you, but one of my biggest sweet treat loves in life (aside from a huge addiction to marzipan!) is Ferrero Rocher! The nutty, chocolatey, Nutella-esque goodness on the inside makes my mouth start to drool just at the thought of it.   Now, I haven’t had one of these beauties for an incredibly long time (long before I started on my Keto journey in fact), but I bet...

time restricted eating window

Time Restricted Eating Window

I first heard about the notion of time restricted eating a few weeks back when it was discussed on Joe Rogan's podcast The Joe Rogan Experience with guest Rhonda Patrick. I follow a ketogenic lifestyle that incorporates an intermittent fasting window of 16 hours fasting and 8 hours eating and tend to start my day very early with a nice, strongly brewed fresh bulletproof coffee, using butter and MCT oil. Previously, I thought that bulletproof coffee didn't break my fast and was excluded from my eating window because it only contained healthy fats from the butter and MCT oil and...
