    Hi. Just found a website myketokitchen.com. Has anyone tried anything from here? They don't show the carb value, not that i've found anyway.

    The nutrition facts are usually right down the bottom.of the recipe. I find that the recipe is sometimes repeated and that it is at the bottom of the second recipe.

    High fat is more filling, but usually contains more calories.
    If you’re on Facebook there are some great Low Carb and Keto groups, look for UK groups.
    Also take a look at Dietdoctor. There are lots of great food ideas which are free if you download the app.

    Thanks I don’t have Facebook but have been looking at Dietdoctor which is helping.
    Is it worth buying cheeses with high fat than low fat ones?
    Thanks

    Low fat cheeses usually have other ingredients added to them to give them taste. Check out the carb content.

    Yes but it can be expensive! Ground almonds work just as well and are much cheaper, but will have a slightly coarser texture. And please: don't use xylitol if you have dogs as it's extremely dangerous to them -erythritol and stevia are good for diabetic use and much safer if dogs are around. In general a bit wary of eating bananas as they're are high in carbs, but will probably be OK in the loaf unless you're going to scoff it all in one go!:hungry:

    And regarding cheese (and all creams. yoghurts, etc): you should use the normal full fat versions and NOT the lite/light/reduced fat/alternatives which tends to have more carbs (and often other stuff added) to compensate for the lack of natural fats that have been removed.
