Spicy Chorizo Chicken – Kim’s Club

chorizo chThis spicy roast chicken with chorizo, chilis, lemon and fresh coriander (cilantro) combines some of my all time favourite things!  The smoky, rich, saltiness of chorizo with the flavour hit of cilantro and lemon – all with my favourite roast chicken!  Don’t worry about the mixture getting black with the roasting, I found the flavour was all there.  If you wish to minimise it then go ahead and cover with foil for the first 40m, then roast uncovered for the last 20.

Sorry about the finished photos – greedy me just dove in before remembering to take a pic!  That is the hardest part of being recipe developer!

Snickerdoodles – Low-carb, sugar-free,gluten-free – Kim’s Club

snikerdoodle2

I have really been wanting snickerdoodles lately.  Not the flat cinnamon cookies masquerading as snickerdoodles these days but the ones I remember from childhood.  Puffy, cakey, little mounds of cinnamon deliciousness.  The first time I had them they had to be removed from my sight – I just couldn’t stop!  The originals are not going to work on a low-carb diet, but these will!

Low-Carb Coconut muffins (Cornbread style) – Kim’s Club

coconut muffincoconut muffin 2

 

As you all I know, I’m from the States originally.  I haven’t met an American yet that doesn’t love their cornbread – it’s not just a southern thing either!  Well I have to say it is something I really miss and have tried to replicate it a few times.  This time I just set out to make a nice coconut muffin I could have for breakfast.  Amazingly, they turned out to be a very good stand-in for corn muffins!  Mine are quite a cornbread yellow because the yolks of my eggs are deep orange.  If your yolks are pale, your muffins will be too.

Now you can change up this recipe by adding shredded cheese and jalapenos – more of a tex-mex corn muffin.  You can reduce or increase the sweetener, or add other flavourings.  Have fun and enjoy!  (Now where did I put that bowl of chilli?)

  3. Fill muffin cups ⅔ full. (I use a deep silicone muffin tray, you can use any muffin tray but grease well first or use muffin papers. My deep muffin tray - like a popover tray - makes 8 servings, if using smaller you will get more, they will cook faster and the stats will change.)
  4. Bake for 25-30 minutes depending on your oven, until a toothpick comes out clean.

My (very low-carb) Isle of Wight adventure

IOW-cottageAt the end of September, when England was having a glorious indian summer, I booked a tiny vintage cottage on the Isle of Wight.  I had decided to get away on my own for a week, experience my own company, eat very low carb, go for long seaside walks and generally leave real life behind as a little experiment.  I thought you all might be interested in the dietary side of my little adventure especially, so here is my experience!

My weight had been stuck for some time, despite my being a weight-loss guru….pretty much for two reasons.  1. I eat too much of my own recipes and let’s face it, even low carb goodies are still goodies at the end of the day and can really add up.  That’s why I have rules about them in my weight-loss plans. 2.  There are a couple of things I have trouble living without – coffee-mate and my daily glass of wine.  They make life lovely for me, but I don’t advocate them. (And I still had them on this adventure!).  This is a hard admission for me but, see?  I struggle too!  My low-carb diet keeps me fairly slim but I still have about 10lbs to lose.

Isn’t this cute?

IOW-cottage interior

For this week, I made some of my low-carb scones (biscuits) to have for breakfast and took seven, one for each morning. I also took two dozen eggs, cheddar cheese, butter, olive oil, coconut oil, two rib-eye steaks, 1/2 doz chicken wings, two chicken leg/thigh pieces, two salmon fillets, a spatchcocked poussin (cornish hen), slim noodles (konjac), feta cheese, lemons, garlic salt and salad. Also a tin of pumpkin puree, pumpkin spice, Natvia sweetener, cocoa powder, almond milk, coffee and some soy cream (I’m lactose intolerant). I made a nice seasoning sauce by taking soy aminos (coconut aminos would be even better!), adding a bit of hot sauce and stevia drops to the bottle.  I also took some Ohso probiotic sugar-free chocolate bars.  They are tiny but a nice treat late at night.  I also had a good bottle of champagne (this was a holiday, after all), and a good bottle of pinot grigio!

IOW-Kitchen

This was my tiny kitchen.  Yes, that’s a cake above the fridge that the owners left for me but I didn’t touch it – honest!

Every morning I had my coffee (with coffee-mate – honestly I would have had cream if I could tolerate it!)  and a toasted, buttered scone.  Then I would go for a walk on the beach.

IOW-view

 

Lunch was eggs – scrambled or a cheese omelette, 2-3 eggs.  Sometimes a salad with olive oil, lemon and feta cheese.

In the afternoon I usually made a pumpkin spice latte with my almond milk, a bit of cream, a spoonful of pumpkin puree, Natvia and pumpkin spice.  It felt a real treat and filled me up until dinner. Then I would go for an afternoon walk.

I ate my dinner earlier than usual, about 6pm.  I had a glass of Champagne or wine with my meal. My evening meals were filling and delicious – this was not about serious deprivation!

I cooked with the coconut oil.

  1. 2 grilled salmon fillets with slim noodles and my special sauce (see above – similar to teriyaki).

  2. a pile of grilled chicken wings, again, marinated in my special sauce first.

  3. ribeye steak and feta salad.

  4. whole spatchcocked poussin, roasted with salt and pepper and lemon.

  5. 2 chicken leg quarters that had been marinated in my special sauce.

  6. ribeye steak and salad

  7. eggs again for dinner!  A big cheese omelette.

Then I watched the sunset.

IOW-sunset

And in the evening I made a big mug of hot chocolate with my almond milk, cream (yes, soy – use real cream if you can, or coconut cream!), Natvia, and cocoa powder…..and had my little Ohso sugar-free probiotic chocolate bar.

Despite my non-keto extras, I was in ketosis the whole week.  At the end of the week I had lost 3 lbs, which is astounding for me!  I know it was not just the diet – it was also the walking, which I just don’t do enough of at home.  I think I averaged an hr a day.  It was so nice to walk by the sea and I had amazing weather.  I loved eating this way and being away from home meant I was not tempted by other foods or even overdoing it while I experiment in the kitchen.

So this was my experiment, and I am going to try to do it a home too!  (Without the champagne – that was a holiday treat.  But maybe a nice dry cava..)  You might like to conduct your own experiment!  It seemed to work well to break a stall.  Ongoing I would advise you add more veggies and salad.

Before I left I already knew that this way of eating significantly lowered my risk of heart disease, since I had a recent check-up.  It’s the lack of sugars and starches that lowers your triglycerides which means you don’t have fat zooming around your body looking for an artery….

 

Happy eating!

 

Cheesy crab and artichoke dip – Kim’s Club

Cheesy crab and artichoke dip

I wanted to wait til I made this again to get better pics but I felt I would be doing you all a disservice by making you wait – this recipe is that fabulous!  I am purposely being slightly vague about measurements because you are all over the world with different sized containers and honestly, a few ozs either way won’t affect this recipe.  I can’t take credit – my daughter returned from a trip to Washington DC and said this was a popular dish.  She recreated for me!  DO try it – it is dead easy and so delicious.  Take it to a party and everyone will adore you!  Try making my low-carb cheese crackers: http://kimsclub.co.uk/?p=478 or my low-carb tortilla chips: http://kimsclub.co.uk/?p=501 to serve with it.

I listed servings for 8 – which is greedy because this is a very rich dish.  (Perfect LCHF)  We made it for a party of 10 and it served that many fine.

Easy Chocolate Brownies, Low-Carb & Gluten Free – Kim’s Club

I had bought some very good 100% chocolate to experiment with and saw that there was an easy brownie recipe on the wrapper.  It was no problem adapting it for low-carb so I gave it a go.  Pretty nice results so I shall share it with you!

I used Willie’s Cacao 100% Javan dark chocolate on my first batch, and a sugar-free dark chocolate sweetened with stevia on my second batch.  They were both good, the sweetened bar batch was a bit less intense, so a matter of choice really.  The stats are for the 100% Willie’s.  Do you love that name!?

What others say about my plans…

“Got the set! Thanks Kim for all your loving work in such an important field.”  – Kasey USA

“Having been on all kinds of ‘diets’ I stumbled into Kim via Facebook and thought “why not – I’ve tried literally everything else!”. With Kim’s initial assessment of my lifestyle, food issues, loves and loathes, she put together a plan to suit my needs. Whilst change can sometimes be hard, and some days are harder than others (life wouldn’t be interesting if it were all plain sailing), the low carb food combining has been a bit of a breeze. When things have got a bit wobbly, Kim has been fantastic in helping to get me back on track. I’ve never felt deprived and have pretty large (but healthy) meals. As of this morning (probably 6 weeks in – with a couple of blips), I’ve lost 11lbs! On other ‘traditional’ group diets I initially lose loads and then things stall, this approach is slow and steady! The 1:2:1 approach has really worked well for me, Kim is very easy to talk to, will listen to you and make recommendations that work to fit your lifestyle. If you have a sweet tooth, even on low carb there’s an option. I would highly recommend Kim’s Club, but remember that Kim is there to support you, without the will to achieve you won’t meet your goals, but Kim will definitely help steer you in the right direction.” – Sarah  UK

“Thanks to Kim for kick starting my weight loss and heathy eating programme. I’ve found it easy to follow and inspiring. I feel so much better already and I’m looking forward to a slimmer, bloat free summer!! Thank you Kim” – Caroline UK

“Impossible” Coconut Custard Pie – Low Carb and Paleo – Kim’s Club

coconut custard tart slice Low Carb

First of all – how do you like my plate??  I painted it myself!  It’s the only thing I’ve ever done in those pottery painting places that I really liked!  Those were the days when my daughter was young and on a rainy holiday it was one of the few indoor pastimes we both enjoyed.  I love these napkins too – a dear English friend gave them to me thinking they looked retro Americana, (as you know I’m American but live in the UK) – and they do!  I love them!

Anyway, another friend of mine posted a high carb, bake mix based “Impossible” coconut pie on FB.  It looked so good I just had to have a go at making it without grains, dairy or sugar.  Here is the result.  Although the “impossible” bit, the self-forming crust ended up on the top, rather than the bottom of this custardy pie, it came out absolutely yummy and SO easy.  My husband loved it too – AND as a bonus, it is actually pretty low in calories for a pie.  No messing about with 1/10 or 1/8 portions.  Let’s be real.  In MY world a piece of pie is 1/6 of the pie!  And that is what I have calculated here.  Well under 200 kcal a slice (183) and 1 net carb.  Enjoy!

Chocolate “Ice Cream” Dairy free & Low Carb – Kim’s Club

Chocolate Ice Cream KimsClub

I really LOVE ice cream!  But it doesn’t love me……sob…..

Not only do I not eat sugar but I am also lactose intolerant.  There are very good lactose free ice creams on the market but not sugar-free, lactose-free, low-carb.  IS that asking too much??

So I invested in a good ice cream maker and have been experimenting.  This is a lovely chocolate concoction that is scoopable.  Most low-carb ice cream type recipes need softening before serving.  The brandy in this really helps keep it from setting rock-hard.  The glycerine, salt and xanthan gum help as well, but if you omit the brandy I think you will find that it will still need a bit of time to soften.  You can substitute other alcohols – vodka will be more subtle, rum more pronounced.

NOTE: I HAVE JUST MADE THIS RECIPE WITH NO ALCOHOL AND INCREASED SALT TO 1/2TSP.  IT IS STILL SCOOPABLE!! YAY!

Now for a note about the eggs – yes, I know, raw eggs.  Many of you will recoil at the thought!  In the UK we have ‘Lions Mark’ eggs.  These eggs have been inoculated against salmonella.  In the States you have pasteurised.  Using raw eggs makes for a nice texture and an easy recipe.  I have never had a health issue with them. If you REALLY want to try this recipe but don’t want to use raw eggs than I would advise you make a custard by combining the coconut cream, almond milk and 3 yolks and gently cooking over a low heat stirring constantly until thickened.  Cool completely before using.  I don’t know if this will affect the ‘scoopable’ texture.  If you try it, please let me know!

If you are pregnant, then move along – there is nothing to see here.  Seriously, alcohol and raw eggs, even these eggs, will not be good for you.  Find another recipe, OR see above.  Omit the alcohol and make a custard.  Come back after the happy event!

Recipe type: Dessert
Serves: 6
Prep time: 
Cook time: 
Total time: 
Ingredients
  • 320ml/11oz Coconut Cream (I use Waitrose organic, or you can chill coconut milk and skim the cream off the top)
  • 115ml/4oz Unsweetened Almond Milk
  • 2 Fresh whole eggs (Pasteurised or Lion's Mark)
  • 38ml/1.3oz Food grade glycerine
  • 30ml/1oz Brandy (Optional - see notes in blog above)
  • 1tsp Vanilla
  • ½ tsp salt (I use Himalayan pink salt-you can reduce this to ¼tsp but it might set harder)
  • 2.5g/2tbsp Unsweetened Cocoa Powder (I use Green & Blacks)
  • ½tsp Xanthan Gum
  • ⅓C/50g Sukrin Icing (powdered erythritol)
  • 5 drops Liquid stevia or sucralose (or to taste)
Instructions
  1. Combine all ingredients in a blender or deep jug or bowl and blend well. I use a stick blender but you can use a hand mixer/electric whisk. Chill.
  2. Place in ice cream maker and churn until thick and soft freeze state. Put into a freezer container, freeze for several hours and enjoy! Will keep fine for a couple of weeks.
Notes
See blog above if you don't want to use raw eggs. Omitting the alcohol will result in a much firmer dessert.
