Book Review - The Low-Carb Comfort Food Cookbook

There are thousands of delicious meals you can eat on a low carb diet, but sometimes you CRAVE those carbs. It might be pizza, or mashed potatoes, or other carb-rich foods. Here are ways to make low carb substitutions that are really tasty.



The book has 300 recipes, and in hardcover format is a bit hard to keep open and use. So I use this in conjunction with 500 Low Carb Recipes, which is my main cookbook

IMPORTANT NOTE: The introduction clearly states that all carb numbers in this book are for CARBS THAT COUNT so they explicitly state that the fiber numbers are ALREADY DEDUCTED. People on Atkins and other diets can rest assured that these numbers are the "real" carbs in each dish.

Comfort Foods fills in the gaps with the things you crave. There are lots of bread recipes, pancakes, crepes, mock mashed potatoes, eggplant parmigiana, low carb cheesecake, and much more. There are meals that fit the needs for those on the super-low-carb induction diet, as well as many meals that are great for those on a lifetime maintenance of their health and weight.

Since most of what we eat are fresh vegetables and meats, we don't usually need the comfort recipes in this book. But it is DEFINITELY good to have on the shelf, so that if we really decide we want to have pancakes or fresh bread or something "like" mashed potatoes to go with our turkey dinner, the solution is right there, easy to make and healthy too!
