I used this wonderful sugar free passion fruit concentrate from Hawaii in this dessert.

Breakfast!

Hot keto porridge with blueberries, cream and keto honey, bullet proof coffee.

Dinner idea:

Cauliflower and broccoli cheese, Mediterranean veggie tray bake and pork chop.

Every curry I make starts with:

Toasted spices, added onion, pureed ginger and garlic, curry powder, turmeric, chili powder, bay, lime and curry leaves. Add fresh diced tomatoes, simmer and add meat of choice. This turned into a chicken curry.
