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 creator of all the hundreds of recipes on this blog, as well as the author of KETO KITCHEN, a beautiful, recently published cookbook... with a 2nd book coming in 2021!

Click here to read more about the worldwide availability of KETO KITCHEN (one of the UK's best-selling low carb cookbooks!), as well as the fantastic reviews that are pouring in. It will make a beautiful stocking filler for a loved one who has talked about switching to a healthy, low carb lifestyle in the new year.



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 book. I hope this helps...

If you haven’t already tried browning butter, please give it ago…

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!
