IF YOU’RE CRAV­ING… PASTA

A spi­raliser is se­ri­ously great for turn­ing veg­gies into long noo­dle-like strands (check Ama­zon). To get your pasta fix with­out the carbs, make spaghetti out of a cou­ple of cour­gettes, then dress it with parme­san cheese – which is high in pro­tein – and MCT oil.

IF YOU’RE CRAV­ING… MASHED POTA­TOES

Chop up a cau­li­flower head and a hand­ful or turnips and cook them in or­ganic broth for a few hours. Then blend with a hand­held im­mer­sion blender or in a food pro­ces­sor un­til smooth. Add chives, salt, pep­per and but­ter for guilt-free, low-carb gorg­ing. You won’t be able to tell the dif­fer­ence.

IF YOU’RE CRAV­ING… RICE

Hit the ver­sa­tile cau­li­flower again to make a de­li­cious “rice” that has only 5g of carbs per cup com­pared with cooked white rice’s 45g. Chop up a cau­li­flower head, put the pieces into a food pro­ces­sor and pulse un­til the bits are so tiny they re­sem­ble rice grains. Fry it with soy sauce and a dash of fish sauce for fried rice, or use it to make your own keto-friendly sushi rolls.
