Hi, I’m Megan
I share great tasting keto and low carb cooking that everyone can enjoy. Like many of you, I know what it is like to struggle with weight and health issues bought on by a high carb diet. I’m here to help you find amazing food that leaves you full of energy and never feel like you are missing out.
In 2017 I found myself diagnosed with Insulin Resistance and weighing in at 110kg. I knew I had to change the way I ate to help myself lose the weight and gain my health back.
This led me to the keto low carb diet and my life changed immediately.
Growing up as a skinny active person I found weight gain and lots of associated health issues plague me from around the same time I went into early menopause at the age of 30. My weight continued to increase. By the time I was 45, I was 110kg, had a fatty liver, insulin resistance, carpal tunnel, joint problems, psoriasis, dermatitis, problems with sleeping, snoring, and many, many more issues.
Simply changing my diet to one low in carbohydrates immediately saw me losing weight (30kg) and feeling incredibly energetic and inspired.
I started my blog Low Carb Mixers in the April 2017 and published my first two books Real Food Real Fast and Flavour in August 2017. Mad Creations was “born” that year and I knew I wanted to focus on sharing recipes and spread the message of how a low carb diet can help you regain your health.
Since a young child, I have been creating my own original recipes. My first career was in commercial cooking and creating amazing meals and recipes in award-winning restaurants, hotels and cafes. As a lifelong foodie who ALWAYS wants to create delicious, flavour-packed original recipes I work so hard to give you amazing recipes that not only you, but the whole family can love.
I am not a health guru, coach or professional in the health field. What you get is a passionate foodie who loves real cooking with standout meals. I want every recipe to be a winner. I create my own recipes, test them and shoot them all myself. Even in my cookbooks I shoot all the recipes until I find that perfect picture that makes me want to make and eat that recipe. Every recipe has to be real, simple, delicious, and easy for you to make.
What you will find on this website is a huge range of recipes that are sugar-free, gluten and grain-free (with just a few exceptions), diabetic-friendly, keto, low carb, paleo and a host more as I try and develop more recipes based around dietary needs of others. My promise to you though is all recipes will be the best that I can deliver to you.
I am now 47 years old and I am very much in love with the man of my dreams Dave Hunter.
Dave and I have been together for 30 years (come November 2019) and he is not only my partner in life and love but he is also my best friend and the other half of MAD (Megan And Dave) Creations. We both work together full-time from our home in Thornton, NSW, Australia. With only the one little fur-baby Stormbringer for company.
Dave and I both follow a very simple keto lifestyle of keeping it under 20g net carbs a day. Occasional grains are in our diet in the form of the amazing Low Carb Bread but otherwise, we are pretty much grain, sugar and gluten free. We both eat all the recipes in our books and on the website that is why you will find such an interesting range of recipes among the books and website so we never get bored and feel the need to change our lifestyle.
I am so happy you have found our site and hope you enjoy all the recipes, meal plans or cookbooks. Should you ever want to reach out to suggest a recipe or have any questions you can reach me at firstname.lastname@example.org. Plus you can of course find us on social media and follow us on Instagram and Facebook.
