Keto Braised Pork Leg (Pressure Cooker)

How do you feel about the partial relaxation of the MCO? For those who are not in Malaysia, today is the re-opening of our economical sectors, meaning most shops and businesses are back in operation, with the exception of schools, entertainment services, hair/beauty saloons and several other less essential services.

Teochew Style Boiled Baby Octopus

I’m not the most confident when it comes to cooking seafood, that’s why we seldom do that at home. Even if we do, the cleaning and prepping would be done by Kevin because well, Seafood anatomy is largely foreign to me. However, after cooking beef and pork for 40 days, the routine just needs to…

Tips to Cook a Mean Steak at Home

Today I like to share a little more on eating meat in general. There are many kinds of meat (provided you are not eating strange wild animals, that’s extremely unsafe in many reasons as you know) to be eaten while practising a ketogenic or carnivore lifestyle: Chicken, Lamb, Pork, Buffalo, Beef and even all sorts…

Keto Meatloaf with Mustard Caper Cream Sauce

One great thing about cooking at home is that you have the power to decide what to make; from something super simple like steak and fried eggs, to something a little bit more fancy that will wow the dinner company. For me, it depends entirely on my mood because even though I’m just as happy…

Easy Brussels Sprouts with Bacon

Ahhhh Brussels sprouts! You either hate it or love it. Appears frequently on Thanksgiving or Christmas dinner, it’s not exactly a common vegetable in Malaysia. However we are starting to see more and more grocers selling them at a reasonable price, and most of them are from Australia, so the quality is pretty good. Scarred…

Keto Shopping Guide (Non-Halal)

It has been 16 months since we embarked on a ketogenic lifestyle and I think this is the most successful way of eating by far for me. Sure, there have been instances where we gave in and have a bit of a cheat meal (especially when on vacation), but I always suffer the consequences in…
