Keto and Intermittent Fasting

As my regular readers already know, I’ve been on keto for over a year now. I stumbled upon it quite by accident, as I had just recovered from a broken toe, and was finally ready to redeem my membership prize to an online fitness coaching program that I had won about six months earlier. By the time I got to it, my coach was moving … Continue reading Keto and Intermittent Fasting

Keto Spice Eid Cookies (Zimtsterne)

I’m baking for Eid, and although all of the sweets I have traditionally made aren’t keto friendly, I chose to try my hand at this time-old Swiss recipe for Christmas cookies, perhaps my favorite among all cookies, and give it a slight twist to make it Keto friendly. The version I offer here is keto-friendly, if you’re interested in the traditional, not so keto version, … Continue reading Keto Spice Eid Cookies (Zimtsterne)

2018 Roundup

Well here we are, the end of 2018. Another eventful year gone by! I’ve posted an average of about a blogpost every third day, and considering that I’ve slowed down a bit during my move a few months ago, I must say I’m delighted with this statistic. Hence the horn tooting. Since this is a roundup of the year’s happenings, I’ll start off with the … Continue reading 2018 Roundup

Greatness Should Keep On Giving

Yesterday, for the first time in about twenty years, I shopped at H&M. It had been accused of not caring for the environment or its workers, the complaints were loud, and unapologetic. H&M took notice, and it’s been cleaning up its act ever since Fashion Revolution began about six years ago, in response to the Rana Plaza disaster. I rarely buy new clothes for myself, … Continue reading Greatness Should Keep On Giving

They might join me eventually, but I’m not stressing about it. I cook lots of veggies … Continue reading My favorite Keto buns yet

Keto Waffles

I’ve tried a variety of recipes found online for keto waffles. My family loves homemade waffles, but I’ve been struggling to find a recipe that was keto friendly and easy, quick, and delicious. Finally, I combined all the successes and failures in my waffle-making experience, and came up with this no fail recipe that you can enjoy with your family and friends, on a keto … Continue reading Keto Waffles

White Coffee

I’m a coffee enthusiast. But sometimes I like to have something different. While in Libya I discovered what in Tripoli is called “Gahwa byadha” or white coffee. It’s actually not coffee at all, it’s 100% caffeine free, but it’s warm, and for people who don’t like coffee, or just want something different once in a while, it’s a nice substitute. If it’s caffeine free and … Continue reading White Coffee
