Fathead Pizza!


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!

Low Carb Kale Chips


In Holland it isn’t easy to find Kale as a bunch. It is sold just about everywhere, but then the kale is shredded because most of the time it’s eaten in ‘stamppot’, which means together with potato mash and sausage.

But in one store in Rotterdam I found some organic kale, so I bought this to try making kale chips again. Last time they didn’t turn out great. This time they did!

The recipe:

Some kale (I just used 50 grams)

Olive oil


Preheat the oven on 250F/120C.

Wash and dry the kale. Sprinkle oil over the kale and make sure all the leaves are covered. Use your hands.

Lay the kale in a single layer on an oven plate covered with parchment paper. Sprinkle with salt (not too much, I did this I am sad to say) and put into the preheated oven.

After 20 minutes check how they are doing. If they are crispy, they are ready! If not, leave them for another 5 minutes.



Halloumi – Cypriotic Cheese


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:

The Unwich – Breadless Sandwich…


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!


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!

Yesterday’s test-bake: Low Carb Coconut and Almond biscuits


After a week or so I always start thinking about sweets. Eating Low Carb means no Sugar, and this means eating much less sweet food. Which I really don’t mind, but apparently my brain starts missing something. So this is the point where I start browsing the internet for ideas. Coconut macaroons was an idea, and after comparing some recipes I came to this recipe…

  • 2 eggwhites
  • 75 grams of coconut flakes
  • 50 grams of almond flour
  • 2 tablespoons of Truvia
  • Some vanilla.

I whisked the eggwhites until stiff and mixed all the other ingredients in, about 25 minutes in the oven at 180 degrees (375F), and there you go!

They didn’t exactly taste like the real thing, but it sure satisfied my sugarcraving!
