1.0 out of 5 stars Waste of money 19 Jan 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I bought this as I am about to embark on a low carb diet and thought it would include some quick, imaginative recipes that I could use when in a hurry. No such luck. Most of the book is about what low carb eating is (surely one already knows if looking at a recipe book for such a diet) and the recipes it does contain are not really recipes: celery and humous; crudities; coleslaw. Don't bother. Nothing you can't think of for yourself in here.

1.0 out of 5 stars Not a good purchase 19 Feb 2012
By Maria
I bought this book for my husband who stays in hotels during the week and wanted to reduce his carbs. The book has hardly any decent recipes and was a complete waste of time. It did not suit his needs at all.

1.0 out of 5 stars not for me 11 Mar 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I know this was amazingly cheap so really any critiscisms have to be gentle - but suffice to say I read through the book and then deleted from my Kindle. Way more basic talk about low carb than I needed and yes I know I could serve basic devilled eggs as a meal choice on a low carb lifestyle but how about a slightly different twist on the basics - just something new that would make me want to try a recipe.

I felt the small number of recipes really didn't even give me one idea that I thought - ohh must try that and peanut butter and raspberry jam on cucumber slices ..... maybe it's an American thing but that one is a definite nono for me.

1.0 out of 5 stars Seriously?? 25 Feb 2012
By Jody R. - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I bought this book because of the other good reviews, but I was severely disappointed. I am rating the Kindle edition by the way, so I don't know page numbers. Anyway, the first recipe doesn't even appear until HALFWAY through the book, and it's shrimp cocktail. I guess I was expecting some of the recipes to be something other than the obvious, like celery and hummus! Seriously? The extreme amount of exposition about the low-carb lifestyle and how to stock your pantry were off-putting. If you have never read anything on low-carb diets, this will be a good start for you. However, if you've ever seen absolutely anything else (either a book or a cookbook) this stuff is old news. By the way, this book has less than 25 recipes. Glad it was only $0.99.

5.0 out of 5 stars Highly useful for low carbers who hate to cook! 26 Nov 2011
By Jill Florio - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition
I am just not a cook, although I want to eat fresh, healthy foods. Since I live in a very tiny home (150 square feet) I don't have room for a stove or a pantry or much counter space for cooking. I am someone who will eat top ramen with tuna or corn if I can't think of what else to eat. This book is a huge help in keeping me on track with the low carb. For example, instead of dumping tuna in ramen soup, I could just as easily have a plate of tuna and cheeses with slices of cucumber. That is 26 less grams of carbs right there and gives me some veggies instead of starch.

I found the section on eating slowly while listening to certain musical artists pretty unique. I agree that reducing stress also reduces "comfort food" carb cravings. This little resource touches on a lot of details that I would not have expected in a typical low carb recipe book. I'd love to see an expanded version with even more recipe ideas.

This book was a disappointment. The "recipes" are obvious combinations that anyone would come up with. I was looking for unexpected ideas. Would not recommend.

Some of the recipes call for eggs or shrimp, but how do you fix those things if you don't cook as the title implies?

"Quick No-Cook Low Carb Recipes (Low Carb Reference)" by Lisa Shea...

What I liked from the read....

I found this was a good read for helping with tracking your low carbs. I liked the presentation...of what you can do with an egg, tuna, and many other items such as cheese. From simply ingredients and lots of information on ...what, how to do with celery, olives, low cal. mayonnaise, low carb tortilla, lettuce, cottage cheese, mozzarella balls in oil, nuts in the correct portions, salads, Cole slaw, Ginger Salad Dressing, Spinach, humus and all the way to good salads as well. Then there are vegetables, bean sprouts to even pickles were added. I did like the list of carb counts for a lots of vegetable that I use some even daily. Juicing was interesting for me because I do have one but haven't use it lately. Smoothies that provide great fiber, protein and Vitamin C are so easily made. Then I like the introduction of dips and sauces that are so easy to make and even learned about making guacamole dip using 'Edamame.' I enjoyed the salsa recipe...that was so easy to make. Being told to eat nitrate free turkey, ham and roast beef are good for you along with tuna fish and shrimp and cocktail sauce was also discussed. For deserts the Berry Plate were really quite interesting to make along with Cheese Plates. I loved this quote "It's time for us to regain control over our time by connecting with fresh, healthy eating styles" and this can only be done by each one of us watching what we eat. The last portion of this book talked about 'carbohydrates' being one of the four main types of energy that our body needs in order to physically burn for fuel also explaining fats, proteins and alcohols. The summary toward the end dealt with low carb food list, meat/fish, vegetables, fruits, milk, dairy and eggs, nuts and seeds. When stocking in your low carb pantry you need to clean out the junk food! OK, my ice cream has to go! So, to sum it up...things to have in the house is water, lots of cheese, greens and broccoli, (snacking veggies), fresh meat...with nitrates. Also Vitamins are needed in your daily diet. This author even went on to explain about low carb spices...I was happy to see I had quite a few of those already in my cabinet. This was interesting...having slow music can even reduce your! I will try that! And then the last point given by this author: Reduce Stress to Reduce Carb Cravings... I found was a interesting read because I really need to reduce stress as well as my carbs.

When I first started reading "Quick No-Cook Low Carb Recipes (Low Carb Reference)" I wasn't sure just what I would be getting from the low carb recipes and all but I will truly say after reading and thinking about it, I thought this read was well written by this author. This author goes into a lot of helpful details and I was made to feel that by reading this book it will help me and maybe even you if you are in need to lower your low carbs intake. Thank you to the author for an inspiring read!
