Crispy Low-Carb High-Fat Treats From the Microwave

Sometimes you want something crispy. And crispy doesn’t necessarily mean the crunch of fresh lettuce. Sometimes crispy means something fried. One thing that low-carb high-fat diets don’t provide a lot of options for is alternatives to crackers and fried chips. Even the things that you bake tend to be either a little bit on the…

Invincible Coconut Chai Tea for Low-Carb High-Fat Diets

Low-Carb High-Fat Coconut Snickerdoodles

I was feeling like something sweet this morning. It was probably more habit than actual appetite. Normally on my low-carb high-fat diet I don’t feel like anything sweet.

Low-Carb High-Fat Moussaka

Sometimes a traditional dish turns out to be very easy to convert to a low-carb high-fat version. One of my husband’s favorite dishes to cook is moussaka. This is usually an eggplant or potato based dish, built around meat and tomato sauce, and served either warm or cold. Just by tweaking a few of the…
