Compound butter is a great way to add both extra fat and taste to your meal. And eating keto/LCHF is just so easy during summer, I find. Some good meat on the BBQ, lots of fresh veggies and a slice or two of compound butter. I almost always have a few different types in my
I have parsley growing on my terrace and it grows like crazy. So every once in a while I thin it by making parsley pesto which I absolutely love or taboulé, which is a Middle East inspired salad with lots of parsley, fresh mint etc. At the moment, I’m having a little flirt with the
Everybody loves a good Caesar salad, right? And since the salad in itself is pretty basic, the burden of transforming this salad into a delicious meal lies heavily on the dressing. Caesar salad (or Chicken Caesar really) is also a great LCHF choice when dining out. You get some romaine lettuce, some chicken, some parmesan
Who doesn’t love a good homemade bearnaise sauce? I know that I do! But considering how much I love that fat buttery sauce, I make it extremely rarely. First, I didn’t think I knew how to make it properly. I thought it was too complicated. Then I found out how easy it was when I
Kale pesto has a very healthy ring to it, doesn’t it? Well, maybe because it is really healthy. Kale is a true superfood packed with fibres and nutrients and using it for pesto is a great way to sneak a bit more of it into the mouths of skeptics. After a long Christmas holiday, I’m back

Ayvar is a Serbian dipping sauce or vegetable relish and it’s absolutely delish! You can use it for all sorts of things. I use it as spread on “bread”, as dipping sauce for meat and vegetables, as a sauce for (zucchini)pasta, (cauliflower)rice or potatoes. You can make it spicy or mild by adjusting the garlic
To make my life and my cooking as easy as possible, I always keep various glasses of homemade mayo, pestos or dressings in my fridge. I do enjoy cooking for sure but my time does not allow for several hours of cooking every day so I love that I can just take these directly from
I must admit I’ve never been the biggest of peanut butter fans. I do like it in creamy sauces or in banana-icecream-bites but as a spread for crackers, I’ll chose almond butter any day! Nuts are insanely expensive in Denmark so I often place large orders from the UK and save quite a lot of money.
Parsley is the perfect detox food with high amounts of vitamin C and chlorophyll which are both used in the body’s detoxification processes. Chlorophyll is also said to be a breath freshener by reducing the bacteria that are responsible for producing bad breath and body odor. I’m not really into different detox theories but I
