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:

Baked Lemon Squares (Nut free)

These nut-free baked Lemon Squares use coconut flour in place of almond flour, yielding a slightly different, more dense texture than one you might expect. They call for some of my Keto Lemon Curd and are packed with so much delicious zinginess because I go further and add finely grated lemon zest. The eggs and cocoa butter holds the whole lot together (so be sure to slice only once cooled) – and I threw in some ground chia for fibre! Simple and yum!

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!
