Excellent and Smart Book

I always worry when I see poor reviews but still order the book that I will be let down. This was not the case at all with this book. Being diabetic, I need to really watch my carbs. I thought this book was helpful for many reasons: 1. Snacking - I need to eat 6 times a day to keep my blood sugar stable. I need snacks. Sharon Long gives two lists of snacks. One is those under 5 carbs and the other is under 10. What I liked was that the lists were not just of acceptable low carb foods ( low carb veggies, cooked meat, etc) but were actual recipes of things like (5 carb) orange essence almonds, smoked salmon dip and (10 carb) pumpkin granola and nutty caramel roll ups. 2. Advice - The author discusses the truth about food bars, discusses ketosis and her experiences with both, talks about different types of restaurants and options you have, and gets real about handling cravings. Sure, most of this advice is common sense. However, the author tells it all from her own experiences as she has followed the low carb lifestyle for many years. 3. Set Up - The book is split into sections for breakfast, lunch, main courses and desserts. There are shopping list, smaple menus, sugar conversion tables, susstitution lists and other indexes at the end. I found the book to be very user friendly. 4. Nutritional Info - This is so very important to me in a cookbook. At the end of each recipe there was detailed nutrition info and the substitution to make the recipe low fat with that nutritional breakdown as well. I think this book is simple and excellent for people who plan meals and do prep work for the week. Recipes are easy to prepare and many can be made in batches for the week. Any specialty items are listed in the back and can be found in most health food stores. While a bit expensive, they are sold in bulk and last for a very long tie after the initial purchase. I highly recommend this book.

Great recipes - different from most low carb recipes

This is not the run-of-the-mill low carb cookbook. It contains different spins on recipes. I'm having a great time trying these recipes. Heartily recommend this for the serious low carber!

The BEST down to earth low carb book

I own several low carb cookbooks and this one has many great recipes and is not written in the usual stuffy medical jargon that is common place today. I recommend this book to anyone interested in the low carb has a substitution chart and a glossary of unusual items...any low carber knows there are a lot of "unusual items" on our grocery lists, and it's nice to know what they are!

The best book for the money out there

This is a great little book at a very reasonable price. It is full of helpful hints and quick recipes that should appeal to a wide range of tastes. Most ingredients are common to the lo-carb kitchen, or would be fairly easy to obtain. The sweeteners Sharron uses are Splenda packets, SteviaPlus and Sweet & Slender (luo han guo) which are my three favorite sweeteners.

A workhorse of a cookbook!

What I really enjoy about this cook book is the simplicity of some of the recipes. It makes you wish you had thought of them. Many do ahead tips that will get you out of the kitchen fast with a meal that seems to have taken far longer to prepare
