Splendid Low Carb Cookbooks by Jennifer Eloff
|I found a lovely review on the internet of my cookbooks that I was not aware of before:|
Eloff's books are packed with delicious recipes containing no more than 10 grams of carbohydrate per serving. There are recipes for all types of dishes, including appetizers, main courses, side dishes, desserts, baked goods, and more. The recipes are clearly written with detailed instructions that are easy to follow.
Visit Eloff's blog at www.low-carb-news.blogspot.com for samples of her terrific recipes, along with other information related to a low carb lifestyle and healthy living.
All of the recipes in the Splendid series are great, but what really sets this series of low carb cookbooks apart from other publications on the market are the breakthroughs that Eloff has made in terms of low carb baking.
Through much personal research over many years, the author has perfected several low carb bake mixes that make it possible to create delicious baked goods – sweet and savory alike – that don't have the "problems" often associated with reduced carb baking. The flavor and texture of the baked goods you'll learn to prepare when you use the recipes in the "Splendid" cookbook is so terrific that non-dieters won't even realize they are eating low carb foods.
In addition to providing detailed preparation instructions for each recipe, the books also include information on what to stock in your pantry if you plan to follow a controlled carb lifestyle and details about where to find ingredients used to make the dishes. Many of the recipes can be prepared with items that can be found at any supermarket, but some of the dishes require items that you are likely to find only from health food stores or online specialty retailers.
For example, some of the candy recipes call for cocoa butter, and the bake mixes include ingredients like whey protein powder, ground almonds, and other products that may not be widely available in every market. However, the author provides details about where she purchases these items for her own use, so it won't be difficult for you to find what you need – and the results are certainly worth the effort!
