200 Low-Carb, High-Fat Recipes

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.

  1. That avocado recipe sounds interesting. I haven’t heard about fried avocados either.
    What are some more examples of types of recipes from that book? Are there a lot of salad dressings? That is what I am looking for. Or dips? Are there some different dip recipes? I’m not sure what type of recipes will be included in a low carb, high fat book.

    1. Most of the recipes are main dishes like fish, beef, pork and chicken. But there are also lots of salads and side dishes as well as sugar free and very low carb dessert ideas. There are some home made mayonnaise recipes as well as many different kinds of salad dressings and slaws. There is a ranch dressing and a poppy seed dressing. I haven’t tried any of these yet, but they sound like they will taste good.

  2. This sounds like a great book buy. Having been on a low carb diet for the past 4 years (and still living it) I am definitely excited for you as well! Avocado fries sound absolutely delicious, and even though I’ve been on this diet for this long, I’ve never tried then nor have I even thought about making them. I hope you make them and let me know how they turn out. Good luck with the new book!

    1. I will very soon. I only have one avocado at the moment, but I will pick some up at the store if they aren’t too over-ripe. If I make them I’ll write a post about how they turned out.

  3. I like avocados but I haven’t found a dish that works well with it yet. I didn’t know that you can fry them. That’s a new thought for me.
    I am on a low-carb diet myself and actually eat a lot of eggs now. I just love omelets but as you say you can get tired of the same food. So I am interesting in making a variety of meals like you.
    Personally, I like cookbooks with lots of images. It’s through images I want to make food. But it can be a good cookbook even without images. So I agree with you there.


    1. One of here recipes is eggs with avocado. You actually slice the avocado around the pit and then fry the egg in the middle of the avocado. It sounded interesting.

      Like you, Tove, I was a bit surprised that there weren’t any images when I got my book, but I gotta tell you, I really don’t miss them. I can generally tell by the description of the ingredient which ones I would like. So it is turning out to not be a big deal. Also a good part of the book the author explains to readers more about her personal experience on a low-carb, high-fat diet and how it works.

  4. Wendy, thank you for suggesting this book. I love avocado but never heard of them being fried. The book sounds like an interesting one to own, especially since I am also eating low carbs.

    This would be a great book for diabetics as well. Thank you for sharing and all the best with your recipes. Maybe later you could share a few of your favorites. Cheers.

  5. Wendy,

    You are really my business mate, the only difference is that you are on fatty lose and I’m on reversing diabetes. I can assure you that the work you are developing is quiet good and even diabetes people can receive aid from it. If only you had an affiliate program, I could be your publish because it is rich in important diabetes information too. I’m highly impressed with your work, continue developing it and will lead you to great success.


    1. Thank you so much. But, no we really are doing the same thing. I am simply preventing diabetes. 🙂 And I’m so glad that you found the information helpful. My boyfriend is living proof to me that diabetes can be reversed. We did it simply by eating low-carb, high fat!

  6. Hi,

    I can’t tell you how happy I am that the general consensus about fat has changed.

    I remember when the word “Fat” was a bad word and everybody tried to avoid anything with fat in it.

    Now fortunately we know that there are a lot of good fats out there that we can enjoy and remain healthy.

    This book sounds really good and I can’t wait to see what it has to offer. I’ll give it a shot.


    1. We still have a long way to go. People still count calories even though the scale doesn’t move. And for many, like me, it goes up. I thought I was doing the right thing. Thank God I found Dr. Hyman’s book, Eat Fat Get Thin and got educated. Otherwise, I would still be unhealthy 189+ pounds rather than the healthy 148. 🙂

  7. Hi Wendy!
    Good thing you’ve done it. What were the hard things you’ve done to achieve a low-carb diet?
    I am so concerned about my health, but I only like a few vegetables. I eat more meat. 🙁
    Is there anything that I can subsitute for eating meat? It’s has always been a delimma if I stop eating meat, what else I could love and enjoy eating? haha…

    1. Oh my goodness, if you love meat, then a low-carb, high-fat diet is perfect for you! It’s all about eating lots of healthy fatty foods like fish, meat, and eggs. You don’t need to eat a lot of veggies, especially in the beginning. My article, Eating on a Low Carb Diet explains in detail the healthy foods to eat. There is no need to give up meat.

      The hardest part of my low-carb diet was giving up sugar. Like many other Americans, I ate a typical diet which included very processed food which is very addictive. It was hard to give up and I actually went through a “keto flu” and felt sick for a few days. But once my system was cleaned I began to feel amazing and it was much easier. Now I don’t even think about it. I just automatically eat a very clean diet which includes meat, dairy and veggies. I also eat some nuts and seeds as well.

      Hopefully this answered your question. Yes, if you enjoy eating beef, pork and other meats than a keto diet may be the perfect fit for you. And books like this which has over 200 different low carb recipes is very helpful with ideas of what to cook.

  8. 200 recipes on low carb and high fat recipes is a lot that can be rotated in a year without getting bored of the same foods every day. Are they mainly fried, raw, steamed, baked, stir fry, grilled or soup? Other than fish, meat and eggs, do they have other veggies or fruits varieties other than avocados? Will be interested to know the varieties in there. Thank you so much!

    1. There are many recipes for fish, meat, eggs and huge variety of veggies and the many different ways to cook them. You will not find too many with fruits as fruits tend to be a bit higher in carbs but fruits are included in a few of the recipes.
