Keto Cookbook Recommendations

(Amanda Jones) #1

Does anyone have a recommendation for some good keto cookbooks? I have never been a big vegetable eater and am wanting to incorporate more into my diet, but I have no idea how to cook them! I have been looking around on Pinterest, but it would be nice to have some great recipes all together in a book.

Hi Amanda,

I use very often a book called “Eat, drink, paleo cookbook” by Irena Macri and adapt the recipes when needed but very often they suit the keto lifestyle. She also has a website where you can see recipes.

I was even able to adapt some of her desert recipes.

I also visit a french website (in french though) but the pictures might inspire you!

Good luck,

Thank you! I actually do a Paleo approach to keto, where I don’t eat dairy or any processed food, so the Paleo cookbook would be great for me. :blush:

She does use dairy (cheese or cream) sometime in some of her recipes but it can easily be omitted.

@AmandaJones. I came to keto from paleo, too (actually paleo, Whole30, keto). I love to cook and tend to get most of my recipes online now rather than cookbooks. One of my favourite sites is Nom Nom Paleo. One does have to consider the carb counts because of the paleo ingredients but she does have some excellent keto recipes. One of my favourites is Garlic Cauliflower ‘Mashed Potatoes’. A few simple non-dairy ingredients. I think the added touch of freshly grated nutmeg (not ground) gives it a wonderful touch. Of course, you have to like cauliflower. :slight_smile:

I’m not a huge fan of cauliflower, but I am looking for some creative ways to make veggies more palatable without smothering them in cheese! :joy: Thank you for the suggestion!

Anything by Maria Emmerich is pretty good.

My favorite keto cookbook is titled Bacon and Butter. Lots of good recipes.

Thanks for the recommendation! I checked that one out and it’s free to read with Kindleunlimited if you use that service, or only $3 for Kindle app regardless
