Welcome to Full Fat & Ugly

– Keto and LCHF recipes from a girl who failed home economics in high school……
Thank you for letting your curiosity get the better of you. With a title like this, it could have gone either way.
This is a blog dedicated to creating delicious ketogenic and Low Carb High Fat (LCHF) recipes. It is also a place for me to try out popular recipes that I have found along the way, and likely ruin them. But I’m doing it for you. I promise.

Fathead Focaccia Style Keto bread

You miss bread, don’t you. Don’t lie to me now. I know ya’ll miss bread. But I’m guessing you have found this blog page because even though you miss bread, your health is more important to you? Me too. So trust me when I say I am here to help. Actually, I’m here to pass…

Tangy Tomato Chicken Wrapped in Bacon 

Let’s be honest, anything wrapped in bacon is a good time. Well, almost anything.  I used to make this meal all the time for the family, but I would generally do it the lazy way and add a store bought marinade which had 9000g of sugar and soy and who knows what else. So I…

Butter Fried Fish with Coriander- Keto Styles

Fish is a good time.  I spend years cycling between vegetarianism and pescetarianism, and the latter usually sustained me for much longer. Each to their own, but that was my experience.  Anyway, you came here for a fish recipe,  not an autobiography so here it is!  I used a lovely mild fish called Tarakihi, common…

Keto Candied Pecans

Sometimes the craving for something crunchy and sweet just really hits me. I know it’s a good practice to wait those cravings out, but until I do, I have a little jar of ‘sugared’ pecan nuts to nibble out of. Pecans are a great choice on a keto or LCHF lifestyle as they are low…

Killer Pork Belly, Keto Style

I actually never liked pork until I discovered pork crackling at a Mexican restaurant! The combination of crunchy, salty, fatty crackling was the key to my conversion. I was always a bit apprehensive to cook it myself, as it’s one of my husband’s favourite meals to order when we go out, and I didn’t want…

Low Carb Cheesy Cauliflower Bites

Okay, this one looked too good to be true. Because it kinda was. The original recipe calls these Low Carb Bread Sticks… but have you had bread? Because cauliflower is not the same as bread. Either way, I was sold on the cheesy part and decided to give these a go. I already had a…

Chocolate Keto pudding

The first time I made this I followed the recipe from the very cool Grass Fed Girl It’s easy and pretty quick to put together. However… I didn’t love the consistency as it was very much like thick jelly (Jell-o). So, I tried it again last night using half an envelope of gelatin instead of…

Magic Keto Bread

One thing you are probably guaranteed to miss when you are keto or LCHF is bread. Or toast, if you are me. And no, I don’t advocate cheating and just having one slice of toast. 1 will turn into 4, and 4 will turn into the whole loaf. Just me? Okay. Well, anyway, in my…

Lemon and coconut fat bombs

The words Fat bomb and keto are almost synonymous. I definitely have a sweet tooth, and whilst I know this is a habit I will eventually (maybe) need to break, for now, I’ll settle for a fat bomb every day once in a while. These little delights are packed full of good fat, and can…

Not too many carb-onara, with Zoodles.

I’m so proud of that title. This is a full fat, full flavour, energy boosting plate of deliciousness. And because you are keto, you can suck down the cream and cheese and smile at the sucker who thinks low fat mayo is a good time. It isn’t. Also, there is no mayo in this recipe,…

Keto Lemon Curd

This recipe had me thinking ‘there’s no way this can taste like my childhood favourite’. I mean, how can it possibly taste as tangy and creamy and sweet? Well it does. And its awesome. And It’s stolen once again, because I can’t make this stuff up.¬† Original recipe from I breathe I’m hungry The only…

Naked Keto Cheesecakes

These babies really hit the spot when you want something sweet. If you are not having dairy, close this page right away. I mean, come back again later, but you really don’t want to see this if you are dairy-free. Because you’ll cry. And there is no good substitute for full fat cream cheese. No….
