Not Fancy Food

Welcome to Not Fancy Food!  This blog is all about sugar free LCHF (low carb high/health fat) family friendly recipes.  Easy, nutritious, and yummy!!

As a family we made the choice to cut the junk out of our diet both as a good example to our kids, and as an investment into our long term health.  We have been eating LCHF for almost a year and would never go back!

These recipes are a compilation from  many sources, thank you all!  But in particular to Libby from Ditch the Carbs and the Real Meal Revolution gang.  You guys are our inspiration and have changed our lives for the better.  ❤

Veggie-Packed Bobotie

Our five year old reckons this bobotie is "better than infinity chocolates"! Long may that last!

Bobotie (pronounced ba-boer-ty) is a well-known South African dish made up of spiced mince baked with an egg-custard topping. We eat this loads! Tonight the man of the house cooked a double of this recipe which made enough for tonight's dinner (for our family of four), plus two more family sized meals for the freezer. His secret is to add fried streaky bacon to the mix as well.

The recipe below is mild on the curry flavours. The spices could easily be beefed up for those with more adventurous palettes.

Apologies for the poor quality photo - I had to snap a quick shot of the freezer meal. Tonight's dinner didn't last long enough to get my camera near it!

This recipe is from "Raising Superheroes" by Prof Tim Noakes, Jonno Proudfoot and Bridget Surtees. Thank you to infinity 🙂

Homemade Mayonnaise

I never knew homemade mayonnaise was so easy and quick to to make. I should have been doing this for years! And the flavour of the mayonnaise is better than even the best store bought brand.
