I am so excited about this book that I just ordered from Amazon.com. It is called 200 Low-Carb, High-Fat Recipes.
I have been living the low carb lifestyle for a few months now, but I am starting to get bored with the same sort of foods. Although I love eating this way it is easy to run out of ideas of what to make for dinner. I mean there are so many different ways you can make eggs. After a while, you get tired of eggs.
This book has many very easy recipes that I am looking forward to trying.
For example, I love avocados. But it wasn’t until I read this book that I realized how great avocados are fried. I just tried out a recipe and it is really yummy! I think I will be making fried avocados very often.
I want to have lots of ideas for how to eat on a low carb diet because this isn’t just a diet for me. It is how I intend to eat for the rest of my life. It is an entire lifestyle change.
Most of the recipes in this book are very simple and basic. Which is why I think it is perfect for someone who is new to eating lchf. I know when I first started I had no idea what I could eat. This book gives you 200 suggestions.
The author, Dana Carpender, has a great writing style which is very informative as well as entertaining. I found the book very easy to read and really enjoyed checking out the recipes.
I really appreciate that Dana also explains in detail why and how a low-carb, high-fat diet works. This isn’t just a recipe book. It is a book full of valuable information as well.
One thing that I did notice right away is that there aren’t any images like other typical recipe books. But this isn’t a typical recipe book. Who needs images anyway? I don’t. If the recipe has ingredients that I like, I will be sure to try it.
For me, it is about simplicity. I want recipes that are easy to make. I don’t mind cooking, but I hate spending hours in the kitchen. I like meals that the majority of recipes in the 200 low-carb, high-fat recipe book are easy to throw together.
