Africa dishes are renowned for their unique and exciting combinations of spices and flavors. From the Jollof Rice and Fufu of Nigeria to the Bobotie of South Africa, our mouthwatering dishes are culinary masterpieces that are sure to tantalize all taste buds. These dishes are usually very high in carbs and it is usually a challenge to lose weight while feasting on them. Asking an African to give up their foods and stick with plain salad, with no oil, just to lose weight is like poking a tiger with a stick. Don’t do it!
So what do you do when you don’t want to give up these delicious and satisfying dishes you’ve enjoyed all your life but also want to lose weight and maintain optimal health?
Enter Low Carb Africa!
My mission is to help you stick with the same dishes you’ve always eaten and enjoyed while substituting the high carb content with lower carb alternatives. Using the same spices and flavors as the original dishes, you will hardly notice the difference. This way you never feel deprived, your brain will thank you, your palate will sing for joy, you will look great and be in the best health and shape of your life!
Hello there! I’m Tayo Oredola, a Nigerian-American residing in the beautiful city of Austin, Texas with my husband and kids, AJ & Victoria. I am a software engineer by day and a blogger by night and weekends. Blogging combines all my passions: creating recipes, photography, writing and tech (believe me, there is a lot on the tech side of blogging).
I began the keto diet a few years ago due to a few health problems such as migraines, nausea and knee pain. You can read more on my story here. I created this blog because of the need to keep enjoying my African spicy dishes on a low carb diet, which was a real big struggle for me in the beginning. I hope this blog helps you and inspires you to enjoy the keto/low carb living to the fullest while enjoying amazingly, tasty dishes.
