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. Happy Cooking! xxx


My first book KETO KITCHEN, 2020 has consistently remained one of the best-selling low carb cookbooks in the UK, and I can only hope that my second cookbook LAZY KETO KITCHEN, 2021 (coming this summer) 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:

Choc-mint Ice Cream (Low Carb)

There is very little I need to say in this headnote, other than I am SO chuffed with the delicious choc-mint ice cream, and that I have a VERY happy husband! I invested in an ice cream maker several years ago, and it truly is the gift that keeps on giving! Homemade ice cream is dead-easy once you have mastered the technical bits, but you only need to get it right once (please follow the tips below) for a game-changing dessert that comes in at only 3.3g carbs per two scoops (100g / 3.5oz total) as pictured. I used 85% Lindt here and a peppermint extract I found on Amazon. Too delicious…

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!
