RECIPE 1: If you are afraid that you have to give up bread…

RECIPE 2: If you love pasta but want a low-carb version

for the “pasta”: 600g courgettes, sliced into ribbons with a potato peeler
• 3 Tbsp butter

Method:

1. Melt the butter in a large pan and brown the chicken until it is golden. Remove from the pan and set aside.
2. Turn the heat down to medium and add the onion, leek, celery and garlic to the pan and gently fry until they are soft.
3. Add the white wine and let it simmer and reduce by half.
4. Add the chicken stock and let it simmer for 5 minutes.

7. To make the ‘noodles’: Melt the butter in a large frying pan and toss the courgette through. Keep frying until the courgettes are warmed through. This should be quite quick.

Recipe 3: A Banting dessert recipe for those who can’t do without something sweet…

Chocolate Nutty Coconut Fat Bombs

Preparation Time: 10 mins
Cooling time: 1 hour
Makes: 10

Ingredients:

2 Tbsp Coconut Oil
4 Tbsp Almond Butter
1 Tbsp Cocoa
2 Tbsp Xylitol
6 Tbsp Desiccated Coconut

Method

1. Mix the coconut oil, almond butter and raw cocoa with a hand blender until the mixture is a smooth texture.
2. Then add the sweetener and desiccated coconut and mix well.
3. Pour into moulds (silicone is easier) with about 1 tablespoon in each one.
4. Set in fridge for about 30 min - 1 hour. Its best the stay in the fridge or freezer until ready to eat, as once they get to room temperature, they could melt.
