WELCOME TO FATS OF LIFE®! My name is Monya (my friends call me Monnie) and I am a trained chef and passionate keto devotee! This blog is my hobby, and I am the creator of all the hundreds of recipes featured here. I am also the author of two cookbooks, both published by Kyle Books in London.

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, (more-recently published) book, Lazy Keto Kitchen (2021) will enjoy the same success. Both books are well-priced, packed with delicious recipes, beautifully photographed - and include nutritional breakdown per serving to help you on your keto journey!


Today's Featured Recipe:

Bacon-wrapped Monkfish with Sour Herby Yogurt

Monkfish is a delicately flavoured fish (albeit quite MEATY in that it is dense and filling). It requires a little more cooking time than regular fish fillets, which makes it the perfect option to wrap a strip of bacon around before baking. I love smoked, streaky bacon because there is more fat that will render out into the fish while cooking – plus the smokiness of the bacon is the beautifully dominant flavour. I season the raw fish fillets with a little garlic powder before wrapping in the bacon and cooking, then serve the pretty, cooked parcels with a lovely, simple yogurt dressing drizzled over. This is so easy, very tasty – and perfect with your favourite greens on the side.

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!






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...
