I regularly receive emails and comments asking where to find good low-carb recipes. I always mention that I like the cookbooks by Dana Carpender and Judy Barnes Baker the best. We use them all the time. (Judy’s moussaka recipe is one of my all-time favorites.)
So I was pleased to receive a copy of Judy Barnes Baker’s newest cookbook Nourished: a Cookbook for Health, Weight Loss and Metabolic Balance earlier this week. For those of you who don’t know, this is the cookbook Judy originally pitched to the American Diabetes Association. For awhile, they were on board … then backed out. Can’t say I’m surprised. They just can’t admit their dietary advice is wrong.
The book includes an opening section that explains the science of why low-carb diets are the best choice (especially for diabetics) with short chapters written by Dr. Mary Vernon, Jacqueline Eberstein (who worked with Dr. Atkins for decades as his nurse) and Dr. Richard Feinman.
But you already know that stuff. You’ll want this book for the recipes. Here are just a few examples of the hundreds you’ll find in the book:
- Corned Beef Hash with Poached Eggs
- Peanut and Chicken Soup
- Creole Gumbo
- Strawberry Rhubarb Parfait
- Sautéed Cabbage
- Barbecued Ribs
- Herb Roasted Olives
If you think a low-carb diet is boring, it just means you don’t have enough good recipes on hand.
To celebrate the release of the book, Judy is running a prize-giveaway contest on her Carb Wars blog. Here’s the link.
Herb Roasted Olives … mmmm…
