Most Helpful Customer Reviews
Although I don't have any specific food allergies or intolerances, I am always looking for "healthy" cookbooks to balance out my diet. This book delivers on its title. All of the recipes I have tried are tasty, simple, and best of all...good for you. I am an avid baker and cook, and have found "Cooking for the Specific Carbohydrate Diet" to be very helpful in introducing alternative carbohydrates like almond flour and coconut flour into my family's diet. I would consider most of the recipes to be everyday comfort food, simple to execute yet very satisfing. The "Dirty Rice" Recipe, which ironically has no rice in it, is my absolute favorite. This roasted cauliflour "rice" recipe is perfect for anyone on a low-carb diet. Although you can make this recipe in a standard oven, I used my Actifry Machine and it turned out perfect. I have also enjoyed the Parchment-Baked Fish, Blueberry Cinnamon Coffee Cake, and Beet Chips, all of which were very good. I can't wait to try the recipes for Cinnamon Bun Muffins and Zucchini Sticks. All in all, this is a wonderful cookbook not only for individuals having specific dietary needs without wanting to feel deprived, but also for anyone looking to add some easy, feel-good recipes to their collection.
