Low Carb Africa

Tricia is the mastermind behind this blog where she warmly greets readers to her captivating blog. Here she combines her skills as a food photographer, recipe developer, and writer to bring forth an array of delicious Keto and Low Carb African-inspired recipes. Motivated by her personal health challenges like migraines, nausea, and joint pain, Tricia embarked on a keto diet journey a few years ago. Her desire to continue relishing the bold and flavorful African dishes while adhering to a low-carb lifestyle led her to experiment with reducing the carb content without compromising the original spicy and robust flavors.

Understanding the universal appeal of diverse culinary influences, Tricia enjoys exploring dishes from different cultures and infusing them with the vibrant spices and flavors of Africa. Her recipes primarily cater to low-carb, keto, gluten-free, and paleo diets, with occasional vegan and vegetarian options. Tricia firmly believes that regardless of the dietary approach one follows, the key to long-term adherence lies in the food being truly delicious.

Tricia's culinary creations are a testament to the fact that healthy eating can be far from monotonous. She artfully incorporates traditional African spices like ground crayfish and fermented locust beans, as well as flavorful blends of bouillon powder, curry, thyme, and cayenne pepper, to craft rich and spicy flavors. While the presence of African spices adds a distinct touch, Tricia assures her readers that the recipes can still be enjoyed without them, allowing for individual preferences in adjusting the level of spiciness.

Beyond her culinary adventures, Tricia shares glimpses of her life as a Nigerian-American residing in the vibrant city of Austin, Texas, alongside her husband and two children. By day, she is a Software Engineer, but her passion for blogging drives her during nights and weekends. Embracing her love for music, Tricia finds solace in singing, dancing, and even playing the guitar to some extent.
