Just received the book today and oh my gosh, I find that I cannot put it down! The book is so much more than a cookbook, it is a wealth of information which will no doubt help a lot of people, especially those that are just starting out on this journey. It actually explains the science behind this way of eating, and includes a meal plan which will be especially helpful to those of us that sometimes get overwhelmed.The food (pictures) look absolutely yummy, and one glance at the recipe reassured me that I could replicated it. The recipes are well explained, and some of them even have URLs listed for videos that accompany them. The recipes each have icons that are extremely helpful, one glance can tell me if the recipe is egg free, nut free, dairy free, vegetarian, can be made in a slow cooker, can be made in one pot, or has a single serving option. Since I am the only member in my family that is currently following this diet, the single serving option will be especially useful for me.When this book arrived, my husband rolled his eyes at me and asked "...another cookbook?". He then picked it up to skim through and almost immediately said "oooh, we'll have to try that chimichurri chicken!". For the record, this is my very first ketogenic specific cookbook and I loved it so much that I came back online and ordered the kindle version for my best friend. Well done, Maria...absolutely well done!Update: I've had this book for almost a week now, the recipes are FANTASTIC. I just made (and ate) the Key lime Fat Bomb (pg 340), ...it was absolutely spot on!!!! 98 calories, 9.4g fat, 0.3g carbs, 3.3g protein. (plus a bit of cream on it that I added). It TASTES absolutely sinful!
I received my (full-price) copy yesterday, and I am halfway through it already. I have other books by Maria Emmerich, and they are all good, but this is her best by far. I'm NOT a good cook - in fact I dislike it - but these recipes are simple, only require a few ingredients and FAST. I came to the recipe for Cheese Puffs and ran into the kitchen and cooked a few for a quick snack. 45 seconds later, done and done! Yummy.As a Type II diabetic, I *must* eat Keto if I am to keep my feet, so I truly appreciate all the effort that goes into creating these recipes - recipes that I can share with family and friends and not apologize for depriving them for my sake!Delicious.
I had mild expectations when I purchased this book. In my mind at the time it was another cook book. Once I opened the package, I was floored.1: The volume of recipes in this book is awesome. Once you get through the intro and "tutorials" you have a beefy 252 pages of recipes! Everything from sauces to desserts and everything in between.2: Vibrant pictures. This is common among cook books but just about everything has a picture.3: Ease of instruction. It's worth noting that the "tutorials" and information in the beginning of the book is worth the time. Do you have to read it to make something, certainly not. Yet, it will make things easier as you navigate though the tome and create the dishes.A word of caution on 2 fronts.1: Take your time with these recipes and follow the adjustments to the letter for ingredients that are substitutes for common items (ie: you will use MUCH less Stevia than sugar as a sweetener).2: Research on which type of Keto based diet you wish to follow. The 2 I recommend looking into are: The Carb Night Solution by John Kiefer and The Anabolic Solution by Dr. Mauro Di Pasquale. Both books are keto based diets, with a small variance between them.Happy eating!
If you are starting out or already following a ketogenic or LCHF diet, this book is the encyclopedia for which your kitchen and your appetite is begging. The book is delightfully written with beautiful full color photos and simple instructions, as well as meal plans and shopping lists for various objectives (weight loss, maintenance and healing), and other helpful information. The best part of this book, however, is Maria's delicious, indulgent, and wholly satisfying, yet simple and easy to follow recipes. Just flipping through the book will make your mouth water. All of the ingredients called for are whole and fresh foods that are basic and easy to locate in the grocery store. I cannot say enough about how fantastic these recipes are. If you are on the fence about purchasing this book, buy it. Make the delicious and very healthy food. You will not regret it.
I'm in love with this cookbook! I've been collecting low carb cookbooks for over a decade and Ketogenic Cooking by Maria Emmerich outshines them all! I've been a fan of Maria for over five years and have tried many of her recipes that she provides on her Keto Adapted website. She provide a lot of basic information to help those getting started on this way of eating and provides ways to make this transition easy for you. In addition to the more than 170 recipes in the book, there are useful tips and meal plans that come with shopping lists to make the ketogenic diet so simple for anyone. Many recipes are available for those with common allergies to nuts, dairy, and eggs. There's even recipes suitable for vegetarians! I like that the macros are provided for each recipe as well as a keto meter to show how it rates. If you are on maintenance, the low keto recipes are fine, but those wishing to initiate fat burning are better staying with the high keto recipes. I've already made the skillet lasagna recipe and it was so quick and easy to prepare! My whole family loved it and it's a recipe that doesn't take much to prepare. If you trying to fit a ketogenic into your busy lifestyle, you NEED this cookbook! You can easily follow this healthy way of eating with these time saving recipes.
