Product Description

Review

'No don't worry, I'm not on a diet, but whatever book Annie Bell writes is always sure to contain recipes i want to cook. Her latest is no exception. --Nigella Lawson

'There's no pretence at complete carb denial here there's even a moussey flourless chocolate cake and a couple of fruit desserts but carnivores, gluten-avoiders, sugar-deniers and bloat-haters will find plenty to conjure with. Followers of Dukan and Atkins will be able to pluck and adapt too, especially as the carbohydrate and protein count of each recipe is given[...]Part of the plan is that, if diners still want carbs, you can add some on the side. It was sorely tempting to boil some rice to go with the slow-roast salt-and-pepper duck with spring greens and sherry gravy I tried but, as promised we didn't miss it. After three hours' cooking and a quick blast to crisp the skin, the duck was tender and gloriously burnished and easy to pull apart rather than carve; I doubt I'll bother cooking it any other way now I've tried this. And when a 'diet' book teaches you a better way to cook, it's a keeper.' --Emma Sturgess, The Metro

'If the January detox failed to have the desired effect then you could give Annie Bell's Low Carb Revolution a shot. [It is] a new way of eating to stay slim, rather than a one-off diet[...]made easier by Bell's easy-to-do recipes employing simple ingredients, which she used during her own attempt to stick to a low-carb diet.' -- Carolyn Hart, Telegraph Magazine

'Highly recommended for everyday cooking' -- --Alexandra Shulman, Vogue

I love this book. It makes you look at your vegetable basket in a different light. The Chicken and spinach pie with pumpkin mash is an absolute winner. Recipes are easy, no fuss and super delicious healthy eating. Highly recommended.

I bought this book for some low carb meal ideas and have found the recipes very good and easy to follow. Fantastic to find a book that caters for normal people who work all week and don't have hours to prepare thing and don't need to buy hundreds of weird and wonderful ingredients. I also have enjoyed using new vegetables which I have never thought about using before. I found the big winners from this book were the egg wraps for easy low carb lunches, the celeriac chips, the broccoli mash and the cottage pie with cauliflower and leek mash - all delicious!

Some good ideas and some of the recipe ideas are helpful if you're starting out on the low-carb lifestyle BUT the carbs calculated for each meal I've calculated are wildly wrong, don't know why no one else has commented on this.

Check for yourself; simple example would be her (delicious) celeriac mash: 250g of celeriac comes in at around 22g carbs (according to nutrition data dot self dot com) yet her recipe says 6.3g. For all those I've checked the carbs declared are way off.

If the figures are important to you, check them yourself.

I found the recipes lacking in imagination and whilst a beautiful book the food was uninspired. I've tried four (granted not loads) but each one was disappointing. I felt the dishes lacked flavour or depth. It's such a shame when you buy all the ingredients and make the effort but honestly they were not worthwhile. Buy the low-carb gourmet book instead. It's a great buy with some really fab dishes!

I was very pleased when I read through this book. Clear, creative and do-able, it reminded me of alternative approaches around daily menus. Sometimes simple and classic with a twist works well. I have made further purchases for my foodie friends having read my own copy. A useful store book to refer to periodically.

This is a really comprehensive book written by somebody who knows their subject. The chocolate mousse cake is a particular favourite in our family! The recipes are not outlandish but use ingredients that can be readily purchased in normal supermarkets.

Format: Paperback
Firstly, do not buy this book for carb critical diets such as Atkins or Keto. The stated carbohydrate quantities are generally way off when compared to every source of information I could find (myfitnesspal, google, nutritiondata.self etc.). Sometimes it is off by a significant amount and would seriously mess with your Atkins diet. e.g. sausage & onion roast, celeriac mash and many others are a long way off.

Secondly, in the preamble before the recipes, it states that keeping below 100g of carbs should make you lose weight. This is utter rubbish. If you are not eating at a caloric deficit, 10g, 100g or 1Kg of carbohydrate is an irrelevance with regard to losing weight. This book has all the hallmarks of being written by someone with very little knowledge about weight loss and dieting. The most research done appears to be a brief google about low carb diets and recipes. Really very poor in my opinion.

Onto the recipes. Aside from critically important inaccuracies, the book is OK as a collection of standard / mediocre recipes. Very little here is specific to low carb diet maybe with the exception of using celeriac in place of potato. It's really just a selection of recipes that are already low(ish) in carbs. If you know a tiny bit about food nutrition you will not need this book as it's easy to pick out your own low carb recipes from the millions out there.

Some great solutions and ideas to a low carb diet.

Easy and simple recipes to follow which does not break the bank either
