This is a review of a fairly specific product- a ketogenic cookbook. But it's such a good book for anyone that wants to eat healthier/low carb, that I had to share!
Never have I ever read a cookbook cover to cover the day I got it! Until today.
The Wicked Good Ketogenic Diet cookbook offers low carb/keto friendly recipes and breaks them down into categories by breakfast, drinks and smoothies, snacks, sides, desserts and by protein. The author, Amanda Hughes, blogs at Wicked Stuffed. There is a very user friendly introduction to the Keto lifestyle, with detail about Keto vs. Paleo, foods to try, and foods to avoid. I've been on and off on keto for about a year now and came across recipes in this that I hadn't heard of before. I love the way I feel eating this way, but plain chicken breast does get boring! It's not a diet- it's truly a new way of eating and I'm thrilled to have a cookbook that makes it easy to keep on track.
One of the main points of keto is to stay between 25-50 carbs/ day- this cookbook supplies the macros for each meal! It makes it easy to track. The recipes are a mixture of high end ($$$$) and very accessible. I do wish there were more pictures, but the recipes themselves more than makes up for it. Going to try the Sriracha Citrus beef tonight!
So happy I came across this book.
