The Vegetarian Low-carb Diet Cookbook, 29 Mar 2010
The Vegetarian Low-carb Diet Cookbook is a companion book to Elliot's The Vegetarian Low-carb Diet. It is exactly what the title implies: a cookbook. It is chock full of great and (for me) easy to make recipes. There are no photos in the book but the directions are crystal clear and easy to follow. All of the ingredients she uses are easily available except for stevia (an artificial sweetener. I have found that you can use other sweeteners instead IF you make sure they can be used for baking. - If this is going to be your initial Low Carb book purchase I would strongly suggest you get The Vegetarian Low-carb Diet first as it clearly explains how the diet works. - If you are looking for a general cookbook I don't think this is what you would want as ALL the recipes are Low-carb and vegetarian ... which, of course, makes it fantastic for Low-carb vegetarians. - If you are a vegan you'll also like this book as the overwhelming majority of the recipes are vegan and those that aren't can easily be adapted.
