Olive & Sun-dried Tomato Low-carb Bread

Olive and Sundried Tomato Bread

I am never running out of ideas to mimic a loaf of the good stuff. Each slice of this bread – made using almond flour and psyllium husk powder – comes in at 7g carbs (one slice is approx. 60g / 2.1oz). A bit of a hefty price to pay for such a small slice, but a great recipe to try anyway on your low-carb journey. Use the best quality, strongest-tasting black olives you can find and don’t omit the sun-dried tomatoes – they add a lovely sharpness with every bite. Serve a slice of this olive & sun-dried tomato low-carb bread with a thick layer of grass-fed butter and a crack of Pink Himalayan salt.

Garlic Pita Bread (using Lo-Dough®)

I blogged about the fabulous Lo-Dough® product a while ago and the delicious Salami Pizzas Funnyman enjoys. One night I attempted a pita bread – and they turned out fantastic coming in at only 3.9g carbs per entire pita! If you want to make it a more substantial meal, add some good-quality prosciutto after baking – see pic at the end). This post was not sponsored by Lo-Dough®, and I am happy to link to their website and share the love with my UK readers…

Best-ever Roasted Macadamia Nuts

Keto Roasted Macadamia Snacks

Just look at those macros – these are the ULTIMATE fat snacks! Macadamias are my favourite nut: they are high in fat and mind-blowingly rich in flavour when roasted. If you can spend 15 minutes once or twice a week to prepare a batch of these, you will have plenty of servings of these super-tasty, satisfying fat snacks. After roasting them, I scattered over a pinch of salt and Swerve® as soon as they came out of the oven, then allowed them to cool completely before storing in a sealed container. The macros are calculated on a portion size of 35g / 1.2oz roasted macadamia nuts – which is ample for a quick snack to get those fat macros higher, or satisfy your desire to crunch on something delicious between meals. They smell like popcorn and taste like heaven!

Keto Onion Rings

Just because you have given up flour doesn’t mean you can’t crumb-and-fry food anymore! I simply combined blitzed lean pork crackling with nutritional yeast flakes (<-my new favourite ingredient) and fried as normal. Absolutely incredible flavours and perfect to have on the side of your bunless burger. Leaner crackling is preferred for this recipe, so I used Mr Porky’s Crispy Pork Strips – which I have seen available at Tesco and Sainsbury’s here in the UK.

Spicy Rosemary Roasted Nuts

Nuts are an ideal keto snack as they are high in fat and fibre. However, the amount you snack on should be monitored. Peanuts are not permitted on keto, but there are plenty of other tasty options. These roasted nuts are moreish with a lovely hint of rosemary and heat from the cayenne pepper which you can adjust according to your preference. I mix in a very small pinch of sweetener as soon as it comes out of the oven, but this is entirely optional. Since you are roasting and seasoning the nuts yourself, purchase unroasted, unsalted whole nuts for this recipe.
