1001 Low-Carb Recipes

Stay true to the low-carb lifestyle with this low-carb cookbook.

BACKGROUND Start the Diet Now Advertisement

1001 Low-Carb Recipes is a cookbook written by Dana Carpender, a well-versed author and follower of the low-carb diet plan.

1001 Low-Carb Recipes is not just about cooking up new takes on bacon and eggs or surf and turf, but rather the book includes recipes that are both carb-rich and not-so-carb-rich.

Crushing the myth that low-carb diets are boring and only lead the person to gorge on pasta, bread and snack cakes, 1001 Low-Carb Recipes provides scores of creative recipes for embellished hamburgers, steaks and even allows you to satiate your carb-fix with earthy breads, fluffy pancakes and decadent cakes.

1001 Low-Carb Recipes is Carpender's end result of her own battle with weight, her experimentation and success with low-carb eating as a lifestyle and a follow-up to her previous books like 500 Low-Carb Recipes, 15-Minute Low-Carb Recipes and 500 More Low-Carb Recipes.

DIET and NUTRITION

1001 Low-Carb Recipes is divided according to meal course, making it easy for you to select among the many dishes featured in the book. Recipes for beverages, soups and salads, breads, sides, fish & seafood, poultry, beef, pork & lamb and sweets are all given their own chapters.

CONCLUSION

Finding low-carb recipes can be difficult if you are trying to stick with the plan on a long-term basis. 1001 Low-Carb Recipes takes the best recipes that have been published in the author's previously published and puts them together into one reference.

While 1001 Low-Carb Recipes is filled with plenty of low-carb and carb-rich ideas, it does not come with a how-to plan for applying the recipes to a weight loss program and even though the low-carb diet plan counts carbs, not calories, the recipes do not list their corresponding calorie counts.

One of the best low-carb cookbooks I've ever come across. This is the one (of literally hundreds of low-carb cookbooks that I own) that I come back to time & time & time again. So many tasty and easy to prepare low-carb recipes that mostly use general ingredients that can be found anywhere (even in Australia, where I'm from), and even if I can't get a hold of all the ingredients, I can usually "tweak" the recipe using something else and/or find another recipe to take its place as there's so many to chosoe from!



Love this book - I would literally be lost without out!
