Boost your Omega 3 fats with Glyn’s simple & tasty low-carb fish pie

Getting your Omega 3 fats

Are you getting your recommended 2 portions of fish each week?

Together with being a healthy source of lean protein, seafood and cold-water fish including salmon, mackerel, and herring are great sources of the omega 3 fats eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) and docosahexaenoic acid (DHA). EPA and DHA fats have been shown in studies to have many beneficial effects for our bodies including boosting brain power, supporting our immune system, reducing inflammation, and ensuring proper insulin signalling to keep blood glucose stable.

In this latest blog, Glyn shares with us his low-carb fish pie recipe which uses a mix of salmon, prawns and white fish, plus is packed with healthy veggies too! To speed up prep time, frozen fish and veggies work just as well in this recipe as fresh.

If you’re longing for some warming comfort food on these cold winter evenings, then this recipe is for you….Read More

Hero Recipe – The Fool-Proof Omelette + how-to video

You can’t make an omelette without breaking eggs…

Here at Low Carb Leeds we are huge fans of the humble egg. Superbly nutritious and versatile, the egg can be boiled, scrambled, poached or fried to make a perfect, no-fuss low carb meal or snack in minutes.

With the addition of just a few basic store cupboard ingredients you can also knock up a great tasting omelette, which can be eaten hot immediately or stored, wrapped and taken with you for an on-the-go breakfast or lunch.

If you’ve never made an omelette before it might appear tricky to master. Or perhaps you’ve tried already but the results didn’t turn out ‘eggs-actly’ as intended! Certainly my first omelette attempts tended to remain solidly in the pan!

As with most things – it’s easier when you know how……Read More
