Avocado Ritz or Avocado Burger – you decide!

Posted on February 3, 2019 by in seafood

Avocado Ritz

Avocado Ritz is either very good or very bad. I’ve had both! Avocado Ritz is as retro as Jellied Beetroot or meatloaf. I’ve had some really good ones, but oh boy, I have also had my share of very bad ones. So, I guess this one is my revenge on all the bad ones I […]

Zoodles with Pesto

Zoodles with pesto…… yum! Possibly the most flavor in the quickest amount of time. Zoodles with pesto are noodles made with zucchini for the un-informed. Which makes this dish banting-friendly, paleo-friendly, LCHF-friendly and gluten-free. Quite extraordinary for something so simple. I think zoodles came on the map with the above mentioned eating life-styles. People saw […]

Banting Quiches with Bacon and Blue Cheese

Posted on March 10, 2016 by in baked goods

Banting Quiches

Banting quiches are somewhat of a contradiction, I’d say! The best part of a quiche, for me, is in the buttery, cheesy crust. Yes, the filling is important too, but what gives the quiche substance, is the crust that keeps it altogether. The banting quiches that I have made so far, were disappointing, because the […]

Waffle on, waffle on…….

waffle

Waffle is just awesome bread, said John Green. Waffle is important! “We need to remember what’s important in life: friends, waffles, work. Or waffles, friends, work. Doesn’t matter, but work is third.” ― Leslie Knope  Just a silly quote I found on the internet. What I do remember though is our annual trips to Cape […]

Portobello Mushrooms

Portobello Mushrooms are the big daddy of mushrooms! Portobello mushrooms are just  grown-up button mushrooms, yip, I did not know that! These meaty beauties have a scientific name, Agaricus bisporus and when they are yound and almost all white, we know them as button mushrooms, but when they are all big and grown up, we […]

Banting has it ups and downs, it’s positives and negatives, but overall we are having fun! Banting, for those who have been sleeping under a carb-rock is the slang word for LCHF or  Low Carbs High Fat way of eating that Tim Noakes introduced in his book The Real Meal Revolution! Now, although we love […]

banting

Banting, oh my word, everywhere around me I spot the “banters”! Banting is the new dieting, like hipster is the new mainstream and pop-up is the new restaurant…… I like it a lot! Banting was started by  William Banting, a formerly obese English undertaker  who lost a substantial amount of weight by cutting back on […]
