Asparagus!

Today was a lovely spring day in London, sunny and warm. I love spring!

Another thing I love about spring is asparagus! It is perfect for low carb and now it is in season. And it goes so well with salmon, my favourite fish.

I always forget to take pictures of my food so here is one of my partner's plate. Mine was without rice but some home-made hollandaise sauce instead.

LCHF: The best nuts

Nuts and seeds are great snacks whilst low carbing. Or are they? Well, they can be! But there are large differences so be careful.

I have compiled a list of some nuts and seeds that low carbers can snack on - and some you should avoid. All the values are per 100 g but if you actually eat 100 g you are overdoing it - nuts should be in enjoyed as snacks, i.e. small portions and not en masse since they are rich in calories.

Legend:
Green - Great low carb snacks but beware of calories!
Yellow - Occasionally ok but do not eat too often or too much
Red - These nuts I would not consider low-carb. Avoid.
