    Hello,

    I have been on Low carb / Keto diet and have had success with the diet I have been following so I created a pdf and uploaded here with various dishes I use in rotation. Its mostly vegetarian diet and where I have used chicken, i have included a Vegetarian alternative.

    The dishes may not work for vegans though.

    @Goonergal suggested I provide the link here as people may find it useful, hence this post.

    You can find the pdf here: https://www.diabetes.co.uk/forum/blog/nutribolt.533316/

    Any feedback / suggestions / ideas will be gratefully received.

    Thanks: some good ideas I’ve not seen before. I appreciate how you’ve collated everything into one place for anyone new.

    My main suggestion is that rather than use celeriac as a swap for potatoes; I recommend swede - either cubed or made into chips, coat in oil, season and roast for 20-25 mins at 200 degrees. Only 2g carbs per 100g (I think they taste slightly sweeter than potatoes, but similar texture and they’re “cheap as chips” ).

    ah - I did not know that. I will try this out for sure as Swede is available in my local Sainsburys. :)

    I tried this today when breaking my 72 hours fast and I must admit it did taste wonderful. Although for some reason it caused a significant spike for me :(

    I will try once again in few days and see if it was a one off or like Cauliflower my body just doesn't agree with Swede as well... it will be a shame though as I really loved the chips.

    That is a shame; just shows how we’re all different.

    Hey I had the swede chips again today and no spike so thats good news... must have been one-off the other day.

    Thanks so much for the tip... these are so so close to the real thing and as I have not had real chips for well over 5 months these tasted like the real deal so my brain was most definitely tricked. :)

    Thank you nutribolt - this is a really helpful summary which you have made. It's a useful aide-memoire and also a nudge to me to re-visit the advice on fasting. I have been using intermittent fasting for a few years now - nothing to eat between early supper until lunch next day - but have never felt confident enough to try alternate day. I will also be trying out some of your recipes (veganising where necessary).
