Delicious full-fat Turkish breakfast

Mediterranean food has often good LCHF food options and so does my local Turkish restaurant Clicia in Stoke Newington, North London. Here I’ve discovered some of my absolute low-carb high-fat favourites. One favourite is the still, I suppose you can say, rather liquid utterly delicious Turkish scrambled eggs, called Menemen.

My local greengrocer

However, the excellence of Stoke Newington Fruit & Vegetables isn’t much of a secret for residents where I live. I like to eat organic and locally […]
