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...

The following post is a guest post from Jenna Aston (@jenna_bellebob). She's a wonderful woman and we've been working together for a number of months now.

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...

Keto and Low Carb Midlands – Free Event – 18th May 2017

“Just burn more calories than you take in and you’ll lose weight.”    We have been told for many years that if you’re overweight, you’re not exercising enough. You’ve probably tried hitting the gym or the pavements.

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...

Keto Nutella

Delicious Keto Nutella!

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

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...
