Hi and welcome to Stem and Spoon, a space where I share the low-carb recipes I'm cooking, baking and indulging in!
Here, you will find exciting, easy and approachable recipes that are low-carb, keto-friendly, and made with nutritious, whole foods.
I am a (mostly) self-taught cook/baker/food photographer who subscribes equally to the cliches "food is medicine" and "baking is therapy."
why low carb?
My husband Ian is the reason behind Stem and Spoon (and my biggest supporter/enthusiastic taste tester).
At the age of 30, he was diagnosed with glioblastoma, an incurable, terminal brain cancer. The days, weeks, and months that followed were a blur of adapting to our new normal, including a new diet.
We quickly learned the ketogenic diet has been used for decades to treat various neurological conditions and that there could be a potential benefit.
Since his diagnosis in 2017, Ian has followed a keto diet, alongside a mix of integrative treatments managed by his medical doctors.
My intention is to make low-carb and keto recipes that are tasty and simple, less focused on dieting and counting carbs, and more about good foods and nourishment.
Life is busy. Kids are picky. And we all need the occasional sweet treat!
Thank you for stopping by!
