Homemade coleslaw

Slaw

When I say homemade it is homemade but I cheat on the mayo , so this is a dirty keto version as I don’t make my own mayo , it’s shop bought and contains sugar hence the dirty keto !

  • White cabbage
  • Red onion
  • Carrots
  • Mayonnaise
  • Dijon mustard
  • Garlic salt
  • Black pepper

Grate the carrots , finely slice the onion and shred the cabbage

Add all the ingredient to a mixing bowl season with the garlic salt .

In a separate bowl I mix my mayonnaise and dijon mustard usually Its a good 4 heaped tablespoons and 2 teaspoons of dijon

Then add the mayo to the coleslaw mixture and stir until it’s all coated in the mayo

Season with black pepper and your good to go !

Naked fajita’s arrrrriba!!!!

Supper

Fajitas are a huge hit in our house and would normally devour a whole packet of tortilla ….. no going back naked fajitas are the way forward . Just because keto is no carbs doesn’t mean you have to miss out !!

Remember if you like your fajitas with a bit of a kick add some jalapeño, I don’t in a proper wimp

  • Yellow pepper
  • White onion
  • Fajita seasoning
  • Lettuce
  • Grated cheddar cheese
  • Sour cream
  • Olive oil

Fry the chicken in a pan until browned , remove and set to one side.

Fry the peppers & onion until soft

Re add the chicken and cover with the fajita seasoning and fry until all the chicken and peppers are coated and the mix is dissolved .

Shred the lettuce add to a bowl , spoon the chicken peppers and onion into the bowl alongside the lettuce .

Sprinkle with grated cheese and a lovely spoonful of sour cream .

Enjoy 😊

Sunny side up !

Breakfast

This is a super easy and quick breakfast ideal in the week and weekends !

I love spinach and use it almost everyday much to my families horror ….. packed with iron and antioxidants it’s an absolute staple in my fridge and adds colour to any meal insrantly

  • Free range eggs
  • Streaky bacon
  • Mushrooms
  • Spinach
  • Butter
  • Black pepper

Cook the bacon how you like to cook it . I like to fry mine in a pan with either butter or olive oil . Grilling or microwaving is perfectly fine

Fry the mushrooms sliced or whole either is acceptable

Cook your eggs,always sunny side up for me ,the runnier the better 😋

Arrange the spinach on your plate , load the bacon on top , place the egg on the side and sprinkle the mushrooms over the plate

Season with black pepper and enjoy !!!
