About me

Who am I?

First and foremost I am a proud mother of 2 beautiful girls.

My younger one was diagnosed with Type1 Diabetes at the age of 2,5 and that is how our low carb journey started. Before diabetes came into our life I thought we had lived pretty healthy. But I did not give much thought to it. Then I started studying and researching and researching on how to give the best I can, so diabetes will not affect us as much. To reduce carbohydrates, was the first thing in my head, because they were the culprit of putting us on a roller coaster every day. But everyone around disagreed. My daughter was very small and I just did not have the guts to experiment on her. I have been told numerous times that without carbs she would not grow or prosper.

I lowered bad carbs and tried to give her the healthiest ones. The ones with better Glycemic index and where the amount of food  is largest.

Then I have found Dr. Bernstein. Immediately ordered his book. Read it. Agreed with everything, but since he is an adult and I was still afraid to experiment with my little one, I have put the book aside and lead a life with something in between. Started experimenting with Low carb baking and reading a lot about it.

The only problem we had was, that anything I have baked, my daughter refused it. I on the other side was either stuffing myself during evenings with all the calories or it went straight to the dustbin. The biggest puzzle for us was to find a bread alternative. That took me about 2 years to solve. I have tried numerous breads variations with no luck at all. The problem was (which I did not know at that time) that I still in between gave her pieces of normal bread. They were much less in quantities than recommended, but she still had the taste buds made for grains.

Do you know the magic?

The magic to this was to keep her from eating real bread for 1 week and instead reintroduce low-carb versions. It was a bit better but still took a long time until she started accepting it. And now you know why on our social media applications next to our logo is a picture of a perfectly made low carb bread.

At the moment she has her favorites, which I always keep in the freezer. From time to time I try to introduce something new and my baking and experimenting comes sometimes with a positive response. And sometimes (more than some times) with a negative.  Its a challenge for me that drives me to try and try.

What I found the most exciting is, if I taste it and think: “This is out of the world and she would love it”, she does not like it. When I am sure this piece was a failure, she is crazy about it.

Why did I start this website?

I want to share my experience and knowledge I have gained throughout the years with you. I have been lucky enough to possess a great English language knowledge and therefore being able to do all the researches on Google in English, talk to people from all over the world with the same issues.

And by having this website in 3 languages, I would like to give an opportunity to friends of mine from Slovakia or Austria to get the inside and learn about low-carb and how it is possible to live low-carb.

Welcome to our life.

I am sure you will enjoy it.

The most and foremost – it is better for the future, it is better for your body, it is better for your figure, so why not?

Enjoy it
