LCHF “is-choklad” – Swedish x-mas candy – chocolate coconut nuts

January 23, 2013

20130123-203029.jpg50 gram dark chocolate (80% preferably) and a little extra cacao to taste

50 gram coconut oil (preferably virgin for stronger coconut taste) potentially fortify with a little bit of MCT oil to make then a little softer. One can add more MCT oil and powder them with cacao powder to make chocolate truffles.

A bunch of roasted and chopped almonds and hazelnuts for instance (roast in a hot pan and then rub them in a clean towel to remove the peal/or top layer)

1-2 drops of liquid stevia

1/2 table spoon Sukrin/Erithrol..

Put the nuts in small ups and blend remaining ingredients and add to the little cups. Let them cool in the fridge.

LCHF – Low carb porridge

January 21, 2013

Two portions:

Add 4-5 eggs in a bole with 1-1.5 dl double cream and 2-3 table spoons of almond four (and in my case a little course hazelnut flour from Lidl). Whip / beat the mixture properly and add in flavors such as ground cardamom (two pinches), cinnamon, vanilla extract/powder, potentially 2-3 drops of liquid Stevia. Whisk it all together.

Add 1 table spoon of butter to a pan and 1 tbs of coconut oil and let it melt. Add in the blend and stir while cooking until it looks like porridge.

Serve with some extra cinnamon on top, a little butter if you like and (whole fat) milk or coconut milk, or sugar free blackberry jam.

Next time I try this I will make sure one can taste the cardamon and maybe try adding in some baking fiber like Fibrex, or coconut flakes, etc.

Cabbage and spicy sausage casserole

January 7, 2013

Slice white cabbage as thinly as possible (easier with a mandolin  with a knife or even thinner with a cheese cutter if you have the time. There should preferably long cabbage threads resembling spaghetti almost.

Add in to a deep pot together with chopped yellow onions, chopped garlic, butter and coconut oil, and some sambal olek/chili.

Let it soften for a while and add in the whipped cream and a little bit of black cumin. Add in some spicy sausages and finally some small bouquets of broccoli just before serving. 20130107-114006.jpg

Rich scrambled eggs

January 7, 2013

Add some butter and some coconut oil to a pan. Pour in some double cream, pepper and two eggs. Start stirring immediately while adding some heat.  When the mix start coming together grizzle over some ground cheese and blend and chop over some chives just before serving.

My preferred proportions are roughly:

1 tbs butter and 1 tbs melted coconut oil

0.5 dl double cream

2 eggs

2-3 tbs ground cheese

1 tbs chopped chives (while serving – no heating)
