My Seeded Crackers + Avocado + Smoked Salmon + Homemade Mayonnaise + Jalapeños . . . Quick and easy lunch 👌🏻🍃 . . . Ellenie’s Seeded Crackers 1⁄3 cup almond flour 1⁄3 cup sunflower seeds 1⁄3 cup pumpkin seeds 1⁄3 cup flax seed or linseed 1⁄3 cup sesame seeds 1 tablespoon psyllium powder 2 tablespoon Chia Seeds 1 teaspoon salt 1/4 tsp Fennel seeds (optional) 4 tablespoons melted coconut oil 1 cup boiling water . . . Instructions Preheat the oven to 150°C / 300°F. . . Mix all dry ingredients in a bowl. Add boiling water and oil. Mix together with a wooden spoon. Let sit for 5 mins so the Chia Seeds can swell . . . TIP: if you’re using solid coconut oil melt it in with the boiling water first . . Cut the dough in half and roll 1 half and then the other, thinly out between 2-pieces of baking paper / parchment paper and remove the top layer of parchment paper, pop them on a tray and put them in the oven . . . You can choose the cut them now into shape or crack them after they're cooked for a more rustic look . . . Bake on lower rack for about 30-45 minutes, check every 15-mins as Seeds can heat up really quickly and burn. For an additional 15-mins leave the oven door ajar and the oven on to let them dry out on the low heat . . . Turn off the oven and let them dry in the oven or on a baking wire rack . . . Break into pieces and store in a container in the fridge. I line mine with baking paper . . . Enjoy! 😘 . . . . . . #lchf #lowcarb #lowcarbhighfat #keto #ketogenicdiet #foodismedicine #nutridenseketo #nutrientup #nutritionalketosis #nourishingfood #nurturenottorture #glutenfree #grainfree #wheatfree #dairyfree #aip #autoimmunedisease #hashimotos #hashimotoswarrior #breastimplantillness #biisurvivor #leakygut #guthealth #justeatrealfood #healthyfood #listentoyourbody #thelowcarbhighfatlifestyle #mindfuleating #mindfulness #seededcrackers

Fried Eggs + Thick Cut Bacon + Mushrooms . . . . . Today’s a new day and I’m feeling as sunny as my sunny side up eggs. Hormones returning to a normal state and the status of human has been reinstated. . . . . #lchf #lchffood #lowcarb #lowcarbhighfat #keto #foodismedicine #nutridenseketo #nutritionalketosis #nourishingfood #glutenfree #grainfree #wheatfree #hashimotos #dairyfree #sugarfree #hashimotoswarrior #biisurvivor #guthealth #justeatrealfood #healthyfood #glutenfreelife #listentoyourbody #thelowcarbhighfatlifestyle #mindfuleating

There’s always so many jokes about “women” and their “hormones” and how it effects the people around them... you know the “scary”, “crazy” hormonal women! . . But truth be said they don’t affect anyone as badly as the individual going through it... and men let’s cut the bullshit because your hormones rule your body too! . . I’ve gone through some stuff this weekend, which has totally knocked my well balanced hormones to the curb, reminding me of the role they play in our moods and the importance of keeping them balanced. . . As estrogen affects brain chemicals like serotonin and dopamine, which are largely responsible for how we feel... a sudden increase in this hormone can lead to mood swings, whereas anxiety can be due to lower progesterone, and depression could be due to lower estrogen levels. . . I’ve suffered the lowest of lows today and it’s very easy to feel betrayed and trapped by your body. . . The need to remember that this is not me, it’s just something my body’s working through to bring me back to balance can be hard to do... but I just have to! . . This post is dedicated to all of those who also feel betrayed by their hormones at time, and a reminder that this is temporary and you’ll feel better soon... I promise! 💗 . . . . #hormones #lchf #lchffood #lowcarb #lowcarbhighfat #keto #foodismedicine #nutridenseketo #nutritionalketosis #nourishingfood #glutenfree #grainfree #wheatfree #hashimotos #dairyfree #sugarfree #hashimotoswarrior #biisurvivor #guthealth #justeatrealfood #healthyfood #glutenfreelife #listentoyourbody #thelowcarbhighfatlifestyle #mindfuleating

MEAL TWO Roasted Lemon Thyme Chicken Wings • Purple Cabbage Slaw + Fresh Herbs + @mingleseasoning Ranch Homemade Mayonnaise Dressing . . . I love adding fresh herbs to my slaws. Today I added mint, parsley, spring onions and chilli... it looks and tastes great and in my opinion a meal is so much more satisfying when it looks good! . . . . #lchf #lchffood #lowcarb #lowcarbhighfat #keto #foodismedicine #nutridenseketo #nutritionalketosis #nourishingfood #glutenfree #grainfree #wheatfree #hashimotos #dairyfree #sugarfree #hashimotoswarrior #biisurvivor #guthealth #justeatrealfood #healthyfood #glutenfreelife #listentoyourbody #thelowcarbhighfatlifestyle #mindfuleating

MEAL ONE Ellenie’s Spiced Coco-Crunch Granola • Greek Yoghurt • Frozen Mixed Berries . . Oh man this is sooooo good!!! . . I just love Greek yoghurt and I’ve said it once and I’ll say it again... WHY DID I RESTRICT IT FOR SO LONG!!! . . As a lactose intolerant person Greek yoghurt is one thing I can enjoy without inflammation and my brand of choice is Farmers Union because it tastes so damn good and is low enough in carbs so I still stay in ketosis. . . I posted my granola recipe last night so do yourself a favor and make a batch... it’s such a nice addition to add to things like this to take it to the next level of satisfaction! . . . #lchf #lchffood #lowcarb #lowcarbhighfat #keto #foodismedicine #nutridenseketo #nutritionalketosis #nourishingfood #glutenfree #grainfree #wheatfree #hashimotos #dairyfree #sugarfree #hashimotoswarrior #biisurvivor #guthealth #justeatrealfood #healthyfood #glutenfreelife #listentoyourbody #thelowcarbhighfatlifestyle #mindfuleating

I’m obsessed with this Spiced Coco-Crunch Granola I came up with the other week. . . The flavors are so nice and the crunchy texture adds such a great edition to Greek yoghurt, Coconut yoghurt, chia seed pudding, smoothie bowls, anything really. . . Here’s the recipe for you to enjoy too. I cooked this batch for 45 minutes. . . . Ellenie’s Spiced Coco-Crunch Granola 2 cups Shaved Coconut 1/4 cup Sunflower Seeds 1/4 cup Pumpkin Seeds 1/4 cup Flax Seeds 1/4 cup Shave Almonds 2 tbsp Chia Seeds 2 tbsp Hemp Hearts 2 tsp ground Cinnamon 1 tsp ground Ginger 1 tsp Allspice 3 tbsp @melrosehealth Coconut Oil and Ghee . . Preheat oven to 120c / 250f and line a baking tray with baking paper. . . Combine all the dry ingredients together and then stir through Coconut Oil and Ghee. . . For a sweet treat I split the batch and added 1 tablespoon of Cacao and 1 x 90g sachet of @nuvia sweetener. . . Spread evenly on the pre-lined baking trays and cook for 30-45 minutes until golden and crunchy, turning every 15 minutes. The darker the coco-crunch, the crunchier it will be. . . Remove from the oven and allow to cool completely before transferring into a large glass container or jar. . . It will keep for 2-weeks in an airtight container in the pantry and you can freeze for even longer. . . I’m planning to serve this with some Greek yoghurt and berries or chia seed pudding! . . Yum! . . . . #ketogranola #lchf #lchffood #lowcarb #lowcarbhighfat #keto #foodismedicine #nutridenseketo #nutritionalketosis #nourishingfood #glutenfree #grainfree #wheatfree #hashimotos #dairyfree #sugarfree #hashimotoswarrior #biisurvivor #guthealth #justeatrealfood #healthyfood #glutenfreelife #listentoyourbody #thelowcarbhighfatlifestyle #mindfuleating

Osso Bucco + Cauliflower Purée . . I know it’s like 100 degrees outside but some days you just want to eat a yummy wholesome stew and to watch back to back episodes of outlander! . . . . #lchf #lchffood #lowcarb #lowcarbhighfat #keto #foodismedicine #nutridenseketo #nutritionalketosis #nourishingfood #glutenfree #grainfree #wheatfree #hashimotos #dairyfree #sugarfree #hashimotoswarrior #biisurvivor #guthealth #justeatrealfood #healthyfood #glutenfreelife #listentoyourbody #thelowcarbhighfatlifestyle #mindfuleating

Saturday morning breakfast at one of my favs. . . Had a bit on this morning so it’s always nice to stop and just let someone else cook you breakfast. . . Smashed Avocado, Cherry Tomatoes, radish, dukkah rolled poached egg and rocket . . . . #lchf #lchffood #lowcarb #lowcarbhighfat #keto #foodismedicine #nutridenseketo #nutritionalketosis #nourishingfood #glutenfree #grainfree #wheatfree #hashimotos #dairyfree #sugarfree #hashimotoswarrior #biisurvivor #guthealth #justeatrealfood #healthyfood #glutenfreelife #listentoyourbody #thelowcarbhighfatlifestyle #mindfuleating

@niulife Coconut Sweet Chilli Chicken Thigh Fillets (with the skin on) + @slendier Konjac Noodles + Fried Egg + Broccolini + Bok Choy + Fried Shallots + Pickled Ginger + Spring Onions + Chilli . . Yesterday I did a huge cook up. I made: ~ Roasted Chicken Thighs with onions and @niulife Coconut Sweet Chilli Sauce & Onions ~ Osso Bucco ~ Chicken Wings with Lemon Thyme ~ Roasted Chicken Maryland with Lemon Sage ~ Chicken Skin Chips ~ Seeded Crackers ~ Onion & Chives Cashew Cheese . . I also worked all day and still managed to do all that because my theory is if the ovens on and I’ve got 2 trays why not fill them and cook multiple meals all in one go. . . Also stewing things like Osso Bucco are easy, they just need time. So if you’re not eating them the same night you cook them, you can just let them sit there and simmer for hours! . . I also prefer to cook and eat stews on separate days because I never enjoy it as much when I’ve drowned in the cooking smells... they actually fill me up! . . I’m all about efficiency and love having a fridge and freezer stash full of cooked goodies ready to go. . . Super quick and super yum... that’s my favorite combination 👌🏻🍃 . . . . . #lchf #lchffood #lowcarb #lowcarbhighfat #keto #foodismedicine #nutridenseketo #nutritionalketosis #nourishingfood #glutenfree #grainfree #wheatfree #hashimotos #dairyfree #sugarfree #hashimotoswarrior #biisurvivor #guthealth #justeatrealfood #healthyfood #glutenfreelife #listentoyourbody #thelowcarbhighfatlifestyle #mindfuleating

Just call me Sir-lunch-a lot! . . Another delicious client lunch at one of my favorite steak houses in Melbourne @santelmomelbourne . .

I always find it interesting when people tell me I have so much discipline because it implies that I’m sacrificing to eat this way. . . The truth is it takes zero discipline. . . To me it’s a no brainer. Why wouldn’t I choose the food that actually makes me feel amazing and enhances my life, rather than the foods that destroy it? . . I spent most of my life feeling poisoned by food that I was told was “healthy”. . . And now that I’ve cracked the code and figured out the foods that give me energy and the ones that take it away why wouldn’t I choose to feel amazing? . . . So if I’m being honest I have zero discipline... this is just how I eat . . . . #lchf #lchffood #lowcarb #lowcarbhighfat #keto #foodismedicine #nutridenseketo #nutritionalketosis #nourishingfood #glutenfree #grainfree #wheatfree #hashimotos #dairyfree #sugarfree #hashimotoswarrior #biisurvivor #guthealth #justeatrealfood #healthyfood #glutenfreelife #listentoyourbody #thelowcarbhighfatlifestyle #mindfuleating

How to survive eating out during the festive season... eat animals and don’t do your head in about the sauces they use. . . My theory is that so long as there’s no flours, grains, etc. I’ll accept a bit of sugar. . . Order entree / main so you feel satisfied and don’t want dessert. . . I choose not to drink at every lunch. If I did I’d be drinking daily. So I save maybe one glass a week, if that. . . I’ve actually gone so long without drinking my clients think it’s strange if I have one! . . . . #lchf #lchffood #lowcarb #lowcarbhighfat #keto #foodismedicine #nutridenseketo #nutritionalketosis #nourishingfood #glutenfree #grainfree #wheatfree #hashimotos #dairyfree #sugarfree #hashimotoswarrior #biisurvivor #guthealth #justeatrealfood #healthyfood #glutenfreelife #listentoyourbody #thelowcarbhighfatlifestyle #mindfuleating
