Keto Morning 2- Kitchen

Welcome my darlings to our second morning. Once we’ve enriched our knowledge about how keto works and measures our bodies, it’s now time to start cooking, tasting and dining.

Starting our adventure with keto, it’s worth stocking up our kitchen with products without which it will be difficult to prepare our keto vegetarian meals. There is nothing more irritating than when we open our cookbook and realise that we are missing 1 teaspoon of xanthan gum or 20g of Psyllium husk.

(Yes, I’ve been there and do not recommend)

Keto Morning 1-Preparation

Good Morning ladies. Welcome to day 1.

Every new thing in my life requires good preparation and the ability to find the right tools to pursue my actions.

And that’s how it was for me when I started with Keto.

I’ve started this adventure by looking for all the available information about what this diet is and what kind of effect it has on our body.

KETO VS LIPOEDEMA

Welcome you, my darlings, to the new section: keto vs lipoedema, which came to me and probably to you too as a surprise and very suddenly, bringing an exciting angle to my experience of everyday Lipoedema life.

Like most of you, I try to eat healthily and be in tune with my body’s needs.

In Lipoedema condition, our body lets us know quite quickly, through pain and discomfort, what foods we should or shouldn’t eat.

As a Nutritionist and health advisor, I have worked through a massive load of paperwork about which products have an impact on our bodies. As a result, I have excluded many products that did not serve my digestive system or body.

I have excluded meat and fried foods from my menu (although I’ve had a couple of non-vegetarian meals, I must admit).

Unfortunately, even though I did stick to specific products and morning exercises, I still put on weight which hurt my body.

This is how the diet turns up – how we feed ourselves a vegan version of keto. 

Considering that we are all different even though we have the same condition, we all need a diet that agrees with our bodies and needs. So I decided to share my observations with you and my notes about changes for me and if the Vegetarian Keto diet will help me find some answers about how I feed myself while living with Lipoedema.

Is the fat going to beat the fat in this case?

Welcome to our mornings with keto.

Post-Christmas Pate

December is a very magical month. Full of love, fragrances and preparations. Post-Christmas time is also one of these magical moments.
Every time I come home after Christmas, I bake my favourite carrot pate. It is full of spices, and its aroma fills the whole house.

  • Honey, do you have to make that noise at 6 in the morning?
  • Oh, good morning honey, how good you are awake …
  • awake? – answered Kuba,- Mmmm, what smells so good?
  • This is the roasted carrots and spiced parsley you need
    to take out in about … 5 minutes. Once it has cooled down, could you put it in the fridge? When I get it back, I’ll make a pate.
  • But it smells so good that I don’t know if it’s enough for a pate…. So maybe this year will you do without carrots?
  • Don’t you dare!

DID Lipoedema CHANGE MY LIFE?


In short, Yes. Lipoedema changed my life.

Changed my point of view on what is essential in our lives. Because of my condition, I understood how powerful my minds are and how vital my self acceptation is.
Comparing our self to perfect Instagram pictures wasn’t the best thing to do.
In the beginning, I was putting myself into a deep depression mood just because my legs are bigger than somebody else. I was putting myself into the victim position because of daily pain and no understanding around. I quit my job because I couldn’t stand on my feet all day. But when sadness and anger didn’t help, I realised that if my body is in pain, I’m the only one who can support them.

Ginger & Cardamon

Autumn, in my opinion, smells like ginger and cardamon.


What warming steam – right?

Ginger and Cardamon – their intensity can give a unique character to our infusions and dishes.
I always try to keep cardamom in a jar so that it does not lose its intensity. Every time I open it, this captivating aroma absorbs me fully. On the other hand, I cut ginger into various pieces and put it in tightly closed boxes in the freezer to always have it in stock.

Both of these autumn spices, in addition to their magical aroma, due to their warming properties and antibacterial properties, are valuable means of fighting colds, infections and even malaise.

INHALE … & EXHALE…

April morning came with a chill, grey sky.

It was cold, though the early spring air burst through the tilted window to bring freshness to the closed walls and the singing of birds spread loud and clear through the empty streets.

Lying on the exercise mat I immediately move to a beautiful, fragrant, green meadow.

Inhale… exhale… hmm, silence.

Immune system vs Lipoedema

The gentle singing of birds slowly pulled me out of my dream.

The needles of the morning light pierced the twilight of the sleeping silence, and the fresh, crisp air cleverly penetrated inside. I looked away. The orange-gold landscape surfaced more and more among the trees.

-Good morning, -I whispered tenderly, wrapping in a light blue blanket.

The cold, grey apartment quickly filled the glow of candles,

-Mmm, my favourite autumn – I sighed sipping aromatic decoction. I felt the heat spread centimetre by centimetre of my body. Blood begins to flow more freely, and thoughts take on a positive glow.

Autumn, always reminds me of my immune system, which is an intelligent, protective shield for the body. Our cells, organs and tissues work together to respond appropriately to dangerous viruses and bacteria. This system is not only in one place in the body, but it also consists of many parts and organs that perform a specific function. These include bone marrow, thymus, spleen, lymph nodes, tonsils, intestine and the nervous system.
