For those living a more “back to nature” food regimen, this book is quite healthy and helpful. Recipes are unique and easy to follow. Ingredients ought to be found at your local health food store. On,y downside is they take more time to prepare if you’re not used to, for example, making your own mayonnaise. I received a free copy of this book from NetGalley and am voluntarily leaving this review.
Super Low-Carb Snacks Is such a fabulous book of low carb snacks that this reader and keto follower is flipping through, marking pages and looking forward to trying. What I loved most about this book is the introduction;, an easy to read section filled with lots of information on why eating low carb is beneficial to the body. The authors do this in an easy to understand way that gave me some good insight into the "why's" of keto. I'm not entirely new to this lifestyle and a nurse AND still learned from this section. I also loved that many of the recipes use the same ingredients so it isn't going to break the bank to make several of them. I'll be trying some of the fat bombs and the Favorite Cracker recipe today. Many thanks to Quarto Publishing Group – Fair Winds Press and Netgalley for the chance to read this temporary digital advanced copy for an honest review. I enjoyed it and recommend it to anyone looking to enhance their low carb lifestyle.
This ARC was courtesy of netgalley - all thoughts and opinions are mine and unbiased Loved this This has some fantastic snack ideas in and great photography There were some snacks I didn't even realise were low carb but as a diabetic this will come in very handy indeed All the snacks look delicious and can be incorporated for those wanting low carb and those that don't Its a book I shall be dipping into often
So many good looking, yummy snacks to make that I didn't even think about eating like different types of savory fat bombs. I can't wait to try them. Of course I'm sad some of the baked goods are too high for Keto, but maybe those will be a special treat. I received this book at my request and have voluntarily left this unbiased review. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review.
This beautifully photographed cookbook contains 100 Super Low-Carb Snacks. By lowering the carbs, something has to go up. I was hoping it would be the protein but most of these self-described “fat bombs” are well over 50% fat. In addition, most of the recipes have high-calorie counts due to this excessive fat. If you are keto and trying to keep below 50 net carbs, just two snacks may use that up leaving nothing for your meals. However, there is good news. The food looks delicious in full-color pictures. Almost every recipe has its own picture. All the recipes are gluten-free and indicate when they are also nut, dairy and/or egg-free. The nutritional information includes carbs, protein, and fat by weight and percentage. It also shows calories and fiber. While there are many fat bombs of nut butters and cheese balls, there are also crackers, snack bars, and candy. But my favorite is Green Deviled Eggs & Bacon, which are kind of avocado toast for grain-free folks. 68% fat but at only 164 calories for two halves, it’s not too bad a hit especially with 10 grams of protein. Overall, Super Low-Carb Snacks may, or may not, work for your diet—only you can decide. Regardless, the beautiful photographs, clear instructions, and comprehensive nutritional information make this a 4-star cookbook. Thanks to Fair Winds Press and NetGalley for a wished for copy in exchange for my honest review.
