Hi, my name is Sam, some people call me “sammysamgirl“. As of current, I am
finishing finished my final year of University, studying Food and Nutrition. I am a past figure competitor, and at one point in my life I survived on a bodybuilder's diet consisting of the basics; chicken breast, spinach and egg whites. Thankfully, I now live a more balanced lifestyle, meaning I still spend plenty of time in the gym but my passion for food and baking has resulted in a MUCH better and more sustainable diet.. (aka the Keto diet!)
I started this blog in the name of my former blog “www.mouthwateringmotivation.wordpress.com” where I once shared some pretty tasty, healthy recipes (if I do say so myself). But as I made my way into the ever-growing platform known as Instagram and quickly gained a new following, .. that poor old blog saw it's last post over 2 years ago.
So after a long time away, here I am getting back to blogging. To be honest I have missed it! Sure, Instagram is great but I find it lacks the more personal feel of a blog-not to mention the endless photos I can include with each post (I'm highly indecisive when it comes to choosing just one).
On this new blog you'll find only the best of my endless baking attempts as I set out on a difficult quest to re-create or “ketofy” as many recipes as I can. This means bumping up the protein content, increasing healthy fats and fibre, lowering the carbs/ sugar and more.
If you're willing to embark on this keto & low carb journey with me, then give this blog a follow and check out the recipe index.
If not, that's okay too, we all have lazy days, so you sit back and relax (still hit that follow button) I'll take it from here. Just click one of the recipes below to start. 🙂
