Low Carb Coconut Cream Frappe

Summer is here, and what better than to chill out with a delicious LCHF Coconut Cream Frappe. The inspiration for this came from my recent holiday to Greece, home of the frappe.

Something has happened!

Wow, I came back from Crete 1.5kg lighter and with 3cm gone from my waist! Something critical in my diet has changed. I am still only eating when hungry and apart from my Samarian Gorge trek , a bit of diving, and an occasional bit of yoga, I’m not exercising at all really. In fact, whilst in…

Practical Ketogenics: Breakfast, keep it simple!

Breakfast, my favourite and sometimes ONLY really big meal of the day, depending on what I’m doing.
