The Low-Carb Gourmet Cookbook


If you're on a low carb diet, you might think you're stuck with burgers and veggies. Wrong! This gourmet cookbook lets you eat like a king and queen while losing weight.

Karen Barnaby begins by sharing her own trials and tribulations at weight loss, and explains how low carb diets work. She gives information on how to shop at a number of locations - Italian deli, Japanese grocery, etc. - to get food that is healthy and delicious. Then, it's on to the recipes!


For those bored with breakfast, Karen has a number of tasty solutions, from egg and sausage muffins to a deep dish pizza quiche. There are almond puff pancakes and Colin's omega waffles. Moving through the day, she offers a wide variety of appetizer, lunches, snacks, dinners, and yes, desserts.

If you're thinking these recipes will require "unusual" ingredients, think again. Sure, some do call for pine nuts or sea salt. Others, however, simply take the food you SHOULD be eating - celery, vegetable oil - and help you find new ways to make it very tasty. There are recipes for stir fried prawns, for turkey tenderloin with pesto, and for strawberry shortcakes with mascarpone balsamic cream.

The photos that are included are mouthwateringly gorgeous and really entice you to give the recipe a try. On the other hand, not every dish has a photo included - something I wish had been different. I always like to see a photo of what I'm trying to make. The instructions are straightforward and simple, and she lists both the effective carbs and total carbs for every dish, along with the fiber, protein, fat and calories. Substitutions are listed where appropriate, to help a chef that runs out of something.

I highly recommend this book to anyone who has fallen into a rut with their low carb cooking. And especially if you're planning any get-togethers, this is a sure fire way to show others that low carb creates the most flavorful food on the planet!
