    Here are some food items I liked when I tried the lchf; it is all organic, whole food and high in fat.

    • Spaghetti bolognaise with low carb mung bean pasta (less than 5g net carbs for a big bowl of pasta). covered with olive oil and cheese.
    • Pizza on pizza base made from 1 cup almond flour, 1 egg, 1tbs olive oil, 1 tsp salt. (makes enough for 2 pizzas. very filling)
    • Hamburger on a bread roll made from 1/3 cup almond flour, 1/3 cup ground linseed, 1tsp baking powder, 1 egg, 1tbsp olive oil, 1tbsp cream, 1/2tsp salt. Baked in a mini-round tin, comes out like perfect soft bread roll.
    • Creamed mushroom soup (lots of mushrooms, cream, soup stock) served with Almond bread toasted slices. I make a large almond and linseed loaf once a week, slice it and freeze the slices for ready toast.
    • Bangers and mash (using cauliflower mash)
    • Fried chicken thighs (fatty and juicy) served with a green salad laden with olives and cheese
    • Fish fingers and “chips”. The fish finger batter is coconut flour and seasoning. Fried in Coconut oil. The chips are the same recipe as the pizza base but rolled thinner. Baked until brown and crispy.
    • Butter chicken and rice (using cauliflower rice)
    • Taco night where it’s all the Mexican trimmings on either cauliflower tortillas, or large fresh crisp iceberg lettuce pieces as tortillas.
