Breakfast 

Porridge may be seen as more of a 'Winter' breakfast but wait until you try this coconut and flaxseed Banting-style porridge that's super smooth and healthy with a kick of rich essential fatty acids. Throw on your favourite berries and a dollop of nut butter and shaved coconut flakes for the ultimate Insta-worthy brekkie. 



Snack
We don't know one person who dislikes banana bread. Its homey and comforting qualities really seem to envelope you in a big warm carb hug when you need it most. Slathered with a thick layer of salted butter and you're A for away! This recipe is grain-free with a hint of orange and sesame. 




Lunch/dinner
A light and lekker low carb delight comes in the form of courgetti with pea and mint pesto with chilli calamari. This could even be served as a starter - served in smaller portions. 





Dessert
Ready for a stellar mug treat? You're going to love this boozy pumpkin and rum soufflé in a mug. It literally takes 2 minutes to cook in the microwave. Are you in?
