Megan Ellam is the Australian-based author, photographer, and recipe developer behind Mad Creations.
A self-confessed foodie, Megan’s passion lies in creating amazingly delicious low carb and easy keto recipes. Her approach to recipes is through a love of fresh, tasty, and easy-to-prepare meals the whole family will love.
From a very young age, Megan cooked for her family which led her to a professional cooking career in several award-winning restaurants. She lives in Newcastle, Australia, with her partner in life and business Dave and little fur-baby Stormbringer.
Megan’s love of cooking led her to create the hugely popular keto blog Mad Creations Hub where she shares her colourful, healthy keto and low carb recipes to inspire others to enjoy real food prepared simply.
Megan discovered the keto lifestyle in early 2017 when she was diagnosed with insulin resistance and lost 30kgs (66lbs) changing to a low carb lifestyle. Not only recording all her favourite creations on the website Megan has self-published 40+ cookbooks and eBooks with almost 2500 keto recipes between them.
Her cookbooks like Keto Mojo, Slow Cook Keto, The Healthy Family Keto Cookbook, Every Day Keto, and Keto Loco are beautifully photographed and showcase keto recipes that are simple, fresh, delicious, and family-friendly. Keto Loco, recently was announced a winner at the Gourmand World Cookbook Awards.
In addition to this, in early 2020, Megan developed a range of clean keto baking pantry mixes. These mixes include Keto Wraps, Pancakes, Porridge, Pizza Bases, Keto Shortbread, and more. Distributed by Keto Eats the range is being distributed to many low carb suppliers and stores across Australia, New Zealand, Singapore, and Korea.

“I think the carbs just messes with your head a little bit.”
“There’s so many products on the market now that could keep you in ketosis but let’s face it, they have 50 ingredients, lots of numbers and a lot of things that you’ve never heard of.”
“Some people think that keto means expensive or that it means really restrictive.”
“Listen to your body not your brain.”
