I’m Birgitte, Mrs. Bee, and I’m a Danish architect. Amongst other things I cook and write about LCHF as this has become my passion in life. I changed the scene of my life in November 2015 leaving my country, Denmark, in order to live with my husband in London, UK, where he had been working for years. Since July 2017 we have been living in Toronto in Canada, and we will stay for three years. I’m excited to have the opportunity to travel and also to settle in different parts of the world.
Our two grown-up kids study in The Netherlands. We often meet in Southern Spain, where we have a small house. My experiences from these countries and especially the trouble finding my full fat, non-sweetened, non-homogenised as well as non-processed food, will be part of this website. I can recommend restaurants and grocery stores.
By the way, there is a need for joyous information about the fantastic experiences one can have while buying, preparing and eating good food.
Mrs. Bee and LCHF thoughts
Me and my family have been following the LCHF advice for several years. You could call the Low Carb High Fat recommendations a diet, but I prefer to call it a lifestyle. For me it is a way of living, eating and treating oneself in the best possible way. I believe in natural foods, minimally processed when bought, and of course lacking sugar, starch and grains, and additives. I never eat processed food myself. My husband lost 4 stones by following the LCHF lifestyle, and he has no problem keeping the weight. I personally feel energetic and lightfoot as never before.
Eating proper LCHF food means staying satiated and not feeling hungry two hours after having had a meal, which I used to do. I never have cravings for sweets any more. I allow for a low level of carbohydrates from natural sources in my diet though. I hope you will find this website inspiring. Please feel free to leave a comment on my Contact page, and also follow me on Facebook or Instagram.

I am very inspired by two websites, the Swedish, www.dietdoctor.com, and the Danish www.madbanditten.dk. Thanks for great inspiration.
I follow Dr. Aseem Malhotra, wherever I can, and Dr. Lustig as well, and I will occasionally refer to their findings.
