Aubergine, brinjals, egg plant, whatever you want to call them, are pretty versatile keto foods. I hated aubergine until I started keto... could not eat it at all - texture issues. When I started doing keto, a friend taught me how to make them properly, so I tried them again and now they are a semi-staple in my house.
There are things you don't realise you miss until you suddenly can't have them anymore, even things you never even liked all that much to begin with (like donuts, my kingdom for a donut). Cookies, here in South Africa we call them biscuits as well, was one of these. A friend requested that I make ginger biscuits and since I am currently obsessed with ginger flavoured everything - why not? So this recipe was created, and it's definitely gone down as one of my favourites.
Hi! So after finally starting my food blog I guess I should start by introducing myself. My name is Elizabeth (or Lisa, or Liz, or Littlebit, or Pix - I have too many nicknames and no idea how this happened). I am a type 2 diabetic, I also have hypothyroidism, PCOS, anemia and on the 9th of March 2016 I had a BMI of 40. For the last ten years of my life I had been slowly, passively, killing myself by pretending that everything was ok. My husband and I had decided that maybe the next step was kids and so, as one does, I went off the pill. As it turns out the birth control pill was the only thing holding my body together like a tiny piece of dental floss keeping the house from falling down. And the minute I went off it, all hell broke loose.
