More Splendid Low-Carbing Blurb

This cookbook is great for people on induction or the fat fast because 50% of the recipes are below 3 grams of carbohydrate. It also has one of my best bread recipes in it which was featured in Low Carb Energy Magazine with hamburger buns, hot dog rolls or dinner rolls and a deep dish pizza crust that is very nice as well.

The fat fast identified by Dr. Atkins as an alternative for people who are metabolically resistant to weight loss (they exist – I am one of them due to an autoimmune disease called Hashimoto’s thyroiditis) is outlined in this book, with recipes and menu suggestions. These recipes are also suitable for induction. I did go into some detail about how to do the Fat Fast but it is only for people who are metabolically resistant to weight loss. Other people could lose weight too quickly causing an electrolyte imbalance and that can be dangerous. Never attempt something like that without first seeking medical advice.

I have lots of favorites in here, but they’re all great recipes really. Let me see, the Spiced Pecan Clusters are incredible. They make a super holiday gift, placed in a pretty, airtight Christmas tin. I also like and often make Ginger Beer, Mandarin Spinach Salad, Sesame Strawberry Salad, Taco Salad, Caesar Salad, Barbo's Crepes, Jumbo Ricotta Pancake, Cabbage Rolls (tastier than the real thing - you won't miss the rice!), Beef Stew, Cheese Tacos, Apple Curry Meat Loaf, Sirloin Steak with Lemon Parsley, Chicken A La Queen, Jamaican Drumsticks, Chicken Curry, Chinese Lemon Chicken, Tuna Pie with Yogurt Sauce, Shrimp Curry, Salmon Almondine, Cauli-fried Rice, Mushroom Mozzarella Bake, Creamed Faux Mashed Potatoes, Zucchini Fritters, Deluxe Green Beans Almondine, Marmalade.

Amongst the Breads - Lemon Ricotta Muffins, Cheese "Bread" Sticks, Wholegrain Bread.

Amongst the Desserts - Linda's Ice Cream Custard and variations, Black Forest Cake, Cinnamon Kuchen with Butter Sauce, Rhubarb Chiffon Pie, Chocolate Fudge Cheesecake, Strawberry Chocolate Swirl Cheesecake, Black Forest Cheesecake.

Amongst the confections - Jelly Jiggle Worms (low-cal and fun - kids like them), Chocolate-Dipped Coconut Bars, Black Forest Protein Bar, Condensed Milk, the best Deluxe White Chocolate, Rich Chocolate Frosting.

Amongst the Cookies and Squares - Gingersnaps, Lemon Squares, Candy Squares and Chocolate Almond Biscotti.

Those are some of my favorite recipes in this book, but all the recipes have merit and some people may prefer some of the others I offer due to varying tastes.
