Book Review * The New 500 Low Carb Recipes

As January ends today – I am thinking about the goals I made the first of the month. One was more exercise and eating more healthy – here something to help:

Since its publication over 15 years ago, 500 Low-Carb Recipes has become a classic in the low-carb community, earning author Dana Carpender the affectionate moniker “low-carb queen” from her fans. The book is now a bestseller, with over half a million copies sold.

Low-carb cooking has evolved. A decade ago, low-carb menus relied on ingredients like artificial sweeteners, unhealthy vegetable oils, protein additives, and processed foods from grocery store shelves, like low-carb branded snack bars and packaged meals. Today’s low-carb cooking is influenced by larger food movements, such as clean eating; farm-to-table ingredients; higher fat ratios, thanks to the popularity of ketogenic diets; and less stigmatization of foods that have substantial inclusion in a low-carb diet, namely animal foods and saturated fat due to the growth of the Paleo and traditional foods movements. The New 500 Low-Carb Recipes is the beloved cookbook updated for today’s low-carb movement.

Net Galley Book Review :

As the New Year begins one of my goals was eating better and being healthy but in a tasty way. And this book has a great selection of recipes to try and accomplish my goal. The cookbook is filled with information ( gluten free or dairy free) and for anyone on the keto diet you can find some additional information and recipes here. Low Carb has come a long way and now it also taste good and good for you. Lisa
