WELCOME TO FATS OF LIFE®! My name is Monya (my friends call me Monnie) and I am a trained chef and passionate keto devotee! I am the author of two cookbooks, both published by Kyle Books in London. This blog is my hobby, and I am the creator of all the hundreds of recipes featured here. I hope you enjoy them all - as well as the stunning collection of beautifully-photographed, triple-tested recipes featured in both my books.

PS: Be sure to FOLLOW ME ON INSTAGRAM to see what I get up to in the kitchen! xxx


My first book, Keto Kitchen (published in 2020) has consistently remained one of the best-selling low carb cookbooks in the UK, and I can only hope that my second book, Lazy Keto Kitchen (coming mid-year 2021) will enjoy the same success.



I get asked A LOT which 'special' products I use or where I source them from. It's quite simple: I use Amazon. Over the years, I have tried many products, but tend to stick to those that give me consistently fabulous results. So, I created a handy page where you can see the exact products I use in my cooking and baking, both on this blog and in my books. I hope this helps...


Today's Featured Recipe:

Keto Lemon Mousse

I love mousse – the texture and the mouthfeel. Regarding sweet keto treats (which are more Funnyman’s thing than mine), I will likely only indulge if its coffee-flavoured or features a very zingy and acidic element. I am working on a fabulous coffee mousse, but in the meantime I wanted to share my lemon mousse recipe here. I added yellow food colouring, but in all honesty, I don’t think this mousse needs it. The flavour of colouring (while subtle) is very evident to me and I prefer the fresh flavours of this refreshing mousse, as is.

I have started shooting videos for the recipes on this site. Check out my Youtube channel here. I must warn you that they are patiently shot and edited by my hubby - and tensions run high when filming, making them worth a watch just for the blooper reel the bugger slips in at the end of each one!
