Product Description

From the Inside Flap

Low-carb and comfort food are phrases you probably don’t associate with each other. If you, like 30 million other people, have ever been on a low-carb diet–or if you’re thinking of starting one because you’ve heard all the impressive new evidence showing how low-carb eating can turn your health around by keeping your insulin levels down and helping you lose weight–you probably know that low-carb foods aren’t usually described as "yummy." What’s been missing from low-carb diets are the comfort foods you crave–the breads, cakes, pastas, and pies that no low-carb plan ever allowed you to have–until now!

Now, with The Low-Carb Comfort Food Cookbook, you can eat such delicious foods as fried chicken, macaroni and cheese, waffles, Mexican favorites, pizza, and a wide variety of desserts–all while restricting your carb intake and getting thin and healthy. Bestselling authors Drs. Michael and Mary Dan Eades, authors of the phenomenal bestseller Protein Power, in concert with the creative genius of chef Ursula Solom, have revolutionized the low-carb diet, offering you easy-to-follow cooking techniques that use everyday ingredients in extraordinary, simple, and delicious new ways.

This one-of-a-kind cookbook features more than 300 fabulous recipes for scrumptious

low-carb breads, breakfasts, and light meals; satisfying soups, spreads, and gravies; incredibly comforting entrées; formerly forbidden Italian and Mexican favorites; and much more. Just imagine waking up to the smell of Nutty Cinnamon Buns and Waffles, munching on Almond Thins with Crab Dip, dining on Southern Fried Chicken with Pan Gravy or Breaded Pork Chops with Biscuits, enjoying a slice of Key Lime Pie or some Strawberry Shortcake . . . then finishing with a Chocolate Truffle. All while staying thin and looking terrific! This book is truly amazing.

The authors provide all the nutrition information you need to make your cooking and eating decisions, including protein and carbohydrate grams for each dish. So what are you waiting for? Get cooking with The Low-Carb Comfort Food Cookbook and see how easy–and yummy–a low-carb diet can be!

Format: Hardcover
The book contains many great recipes, but it desperately needs a better index. For example, their pancakes made with soy protein powder are marvelous, but if one looks up "Pancakes" in the index, one can't find any listing for Pancakes. Why not? Because they're indexed only under "Melt-in-Your Mouth Pancakes." Similarly, the book includes recipes for "Soft-Crust Pizza" and "Personal Waffle Pizza," but if one wants to find the recipes, one has to remember the individual names of the pizzas because they are not listed under "Pizza." In addition, some of the page references are incorrect. For example, if one is trying to find the Eades's recipe for Guacamole, the index lists Guacamole on page 206, but if one turns to that page one finds Quesadillas, but no Guacamole. The recipe for Guacamole is actually on page 199. Indexes are extremely important in cookbooks, and I find it hard to believe that the Eades employed a professional indexer for this book or for "The 30-Day Low-Carb Diet Solution" which suffers from similar indexing problems.

Format: Hardcover
I find it annoying that specialty cookbooks do not need to adhere to the same standards that "regular" cookbooks do. For example, would any other cookbook get away with the frequently used instruction "Preheat oven to 300F or 325F"? Well, which is it? I also found that a number of the baked goods required substatially more time to bake then stated, 25 mins instead of 15. A number of other inaccuracies in instructions may make it difficult for inexperienced cooks to get good results. All this having been said, the recipes taste as good as you are going to get on a low-carb diet. One more word of warning though. The recipes do not list calorie counts and a number of the recipes are very high in calories. Although calories aren't suppose to matter on a low-carb diet, it is unlikely you will lose weight if you switch from regular recipes that are lower in calories to the ones that are MUCH higher in calories. Atkins research may be correct, but even he admits that you can take in too many calories to lose weight the low-carb way. So, good luck, but be careful with some of these recipes. Almond meal does have about 25% more calories than white flour, etc.

I highly recommend this cookbook. The desert and candy sections are very good. I didn't like the breads very much, but the main course dishes have been great. I really like that the carbs are listed for each ingredient in the recipe. That is so useful when I change the amount of an ingredient in a recipe to lower the carb count or adjust the recipe to our tastes. I bought it for the baking ideas, but really like it for the other recipes. I keep this cookbook handy along with "500 Low-Carb Recipes: 500 Recipes from Snacks to Dessert, That the Whole Family Will Love" and the Atkins "Quick and Easy New Diet Cookbook".

The coconut macaroon cookies, sugar cookies, and the chocolate chip cookies are reason enough to buy the book! I do substitute other sweeteners (mostly bulk Splenda and brown or crystal maltitol) for their little bits of real sugar and the recipes still turn out great. I chop up low carb chocolate bars or get low carb chocolate chips, sometimes increase the sweetener to my taste, add more/different extracts, whatever. I use a tsp of lemon and a tsp of coconut extract for the lemon peel in the macaroons--and pineapple extract is good to sub for one of the tsp of vanilla. King Arthur Flour has good unsweetened coconut for this recipe.
Sometimes you do have to order online ingredients for many of the low carb cookbooks, depending on where you live and what is available. So? Almond flour (which is much healthier)is not as available as white flour in most supermarkets--yet. Same for some other low carb ingredients. This is a low carb cookbook. If you want to use regular flour, buy a regular cookbook.

If I only had one low carb cookbook, this would be the one (fortunately, I have many!) I've been cooking from a variety of low carb cookbooks, trying to find meals, snacks (especially snacks), desserts and other comfort foods that will please my family's palette while meeting my desire to eat fewer processed foods and fewer -- maybe no -- unhealthy foods (those I love and miss so much -- like donuts and white pasta, fresh baked breads and rolls -- I could go on and on!)
The intent of this book isn't necessarily to give you all the low carb recipes you'll ever need, but to provide you with tasty substitutes for those foods you really miss so you won't fall of the low carb wagon. These are comfort foods, sorely needed by me and most of my low carb friends!
A couple of the reviews I've read here seem to indicate the reviewers a) haven't used this cook book b) don't understand the logic behind low carb living or c) both.
The Magic Rolls are terrific -- yes, they call for flour, but not unprocessed white flour. No, it doesn't use sugar at all. For recipes needing sugar, they suggest a well-known sugar substitute. The rolls came out fabulously; we have used them as rolls, bagel substitutes, hamburger rolls etc. All of the ingredients were found in a large chain grocery store here in Ohio. The preparation didn't take too much hard work, I made a lot and froze what wasn't devoured (only takes a microwave moment to warm them up from frozen).
Why I love this book best -- I recognized many of their recipes, found (and used by me) scattered through other low carb books -- this one has all the ones I love tucked inside, plus more. And they have helpful low carb cooking information in the opening part of the book.
