A ketogenic diet (keto) is a very low-carb diet, which turns the body into a fat-burning machine. It has many potential benefits for weight loss, health and performance, but also some potential initial side effects. A ketogenic diet is similar to other strict low-carb diets, like the Atkins diet or LCHF (low carb, high fat). These diets often end up being ketogenic more or less by accident. The main difference between strict LCHF and keto is that protein is restricted in the latter. Get ready folks it’s party food time but this round is for the low-carb foodies who want to tuck into the snack table with options. Low-carb keto snacks […]

Spooky Halloween Oreo Rice Krispies Treats

IT’S HALLOWEEN PARTY TIME FOR THE KIDS AND I’VE GOT A PLATTER OF BAT-FILLED SPOOKY RICE KRISPIES TREATS.   Three cheers for Spooky Halloween Oreo Rice Krispies Treats! You can see the scary bats in between the layers of marshmallows and cereal… I can! Tasty little buggers they are and I’m sure the kids will agree. Halloween is tomorrow but the last-minute party invites were coming in from parents as if they forgot they were hosting a party. No problem but when we go to a party we like to bring something along with us. My wife who is not a fan of baking asked me to make something child-friendly that was easy to eat for the Halloween party this weekend that I won’t be attending. Related: A guide to food colourings and how to use them Since we live with a picky two-year old eater I thought I’d make some Oreo Rice Krispies Treats and colour them orange with Wilton Icing Colour. If you have kids who are allergic to synthetic dyes you can opt for all-natural dyes although they may be tough to find. I honestly wasn’t sure if our son would like the Oreo Rice Krispies Treats […]

Crunchy baked chicken with Greek Tzatziki

JAZZ UP YOUR CHICKEN   Now that the first day of summer has rolled in BBQ parties and gatherings are in full force and so are your invites to such events. Today I’ve got this creamy Tzatziki chicken that will leave your guests wondering how in the world you gave chicken so much flavour. We have all had those days where we really can’t be bothered to cook after having a party. If you stare at the leftovers wondering what to do with them don’t fret because I’ve got some ideas for you today. If you are anything like me I always host a food party and ask my guests to bring their own bottle of alcohol (BYOB) and mix so I can focus on delicious food. It’s a great way for all of us friends to get together and keep the costs low, especially if we rotate whose house we have the next dinner gathering at. Sometimes it’s amazing the food that comes out because it generally gives us something to talk about, especially when it’s recipes we’ve never heard of. I like to be off the wall with my creativity so I tend to shake things up a […]
