Fathead Pizza!

Standard

In the long time that I have been eating Low Carb and searching the internet for recipes, I have seen the name fathead come by a lot, but never quite knew what it was.

Until today. I found a recipe for a fathead pizza base, made with cheese and almond flour, and it turned out great!!

Here’s the recipe:

170 grams of grated cheese, mozzarella or gouda;

85 grams of almond flour

1 egg

2 T creamcheese

 

First melt the cheeses in the microwave and stir well. After that add the almond flour and the egg and mix well again.

Put the mixture (with some herbs, garlic, salt/pepper) on a baking tray with a baking sheet at flatten it. Bake at 220C for 12-15 minutes, turn over and bake for another 5-10 minutes.

This is your pizza base. You can put just about anything you want on this pizza, just bake it for another 5-10 minutes and then your pizza is ready!

Halloumi – Cypriotic Cheese

Standard

I am crazy about cheese. That is one of the reasons why eating keto or low carb works so well for me. I wouldn’t want to miss cheese in my diet. I eat just about every type of cheese. One of these cheeses is Halloumi.

Halloumi is a Cypriot semi-hard, cheese made from a mixture of goat’s and sheep’s milk, and sometimes also cow’s milk.It has a high melting point and so can easily be friend or grilled.

Halloumi is served fried with vegetables, or as an ingredient in salads. Cypriots like eating halloumi with watermelon in the warm months.

Halloumi has almost no carbs, just 1,8 grams per 100 grams.

This is what Halloumi usually looks like:

I have made lots of salads using Halloumi as a source of fat and protein. See photo’s beneath:

If you are eating a Low Carb/ LCHF eating plan you probably already understand that your main source of energy should come from fat. A true Ketogenic diet is as high as 70% Fat 20% Protein and 10% Carbs. But, let’s face it adding high fat snacks can prove to be a little tricky. This is where“fat bombs” come to save the day. These tasty morsels come to your rescue when you just need a little something to tie you over. Fat bombs may be the easiest way to make sure you are in ketosis. When your body burns fat instead of glucose. you are ketosis. Having enough fat can help speed up your weight loss. By the same token, if you don’t have enough fat to fuel your metabolism you can experience a weight stall.

I make and then keep mine in the freezer, for when I need a little extra…

The Unwich – Breadless Sandwich…

Standard

A very inventive way to eat lunch without needing bread or a bun, is by making a so called. Unwich. A sandwich, but without the bread. Take some big leaves of lettuce and put anything you like in between, and there you have it! I have Always seen bread as a necessary means to transport what’s on it, so I like it!

This is an unwich I made today:

Peanutbutter Fatbombs!

Standard

Another experiment that was a success: Peanutbutter Fatbombs!

When following a ketogenic lifestyle, eating enough fat is important, so sometimes a fatty snack is a good solution. And when there is peanutbutter involved, what’s not to like??

I just melted 80 grams of peanutbutter and 40 grams of butter, put it in a silicon mold, put it in the freezer, and an hour or so later… ready!
