The Low-Carb Cookbook And Weight-Loss Plan – Review

The Low-Carb Cookbook And Weight-Loss Plan%name   The Low Carb Cookbook And Weight Loss Plan   Review   RecipesNow.com by Pamela Elgin is a 21-day plan to cut carbs and burn fat with the ketogenic diet. Lately, I have heard a lot of talk about the ketogenic diet. It proposes that by decreasing your carbohydrate intake you will actually burn more fat for fuel rather than glucose.

The author contends the ketogenic diet will make you feel full and energized while mobilizing your fat stores to fuel your everyday activity and ultimately help you lose weight. While that sounds awesome, unfortunately, there are a few side effects. These are clearly indicated in the book along with a plan to reduce their effects. One such suggestion is that you transition slowly into a ketogenic diet which allows your body to get used to the change. Chapter 1 clearly outlines your step-by-step plan for weight loss which makes it an excellent reference.

Chapter 2 includes all the information you need on stocking a low-carb, high-fat kitchen. Included is “Refrigerator and Pantry Stocking”, “Go To Foods” and “How To Reduce Carbs And Increase Flavor”.

Chapter 3 spells out your 21-day plan. Your three-week meal plan comes complete with page references for the recipes you’ll need. In addition, a complete list of the carbs fat protein etc. is also included in the plan. The introduction for each week includes an explanation of what to expect from the week’s plan and tips on how to approach the week. Finally, the super detailed shopping lists, right down to the number of lemons and limes you will need, are great.

There weren’t a lot of full-color pictures, which was disappointing. I like that the book clearly spells out prep time, cook time, etc. Also included in each recipe is “The Keto Quotient”, the percentage of fat the recipe contains.

For the recipe, I chose Bacon-Wrapped Asparagus Bundles because who doesn’t love bacon and the combo of bacon and asparagus is genius.

If you don't think you're a fan of asparagus, or any vegetable for that matter, roast it in the oven until browned on the outside and tender on the inside. Of course, wrapping it in bacon doesn't hurt either.

Instructions
  1. Preheat the oven to 375°F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Coat the asparagus in the olive oil and season generously with salt and pepper.
  2. Place 3 to 4 asparagus spears over a slice of bacon and roll the meat around to hold the asparagus together. Place it on the baking sheet. Repeat with the remaining asparagus and bacon.
  3. Bake for 15 to 17 minutes, or until the asparagus is melted and the bacon is crispy.
Notes

Per Serving (2 bundles):

Calories: 202; fat: 17 g; protein: 10 g; total carbs: 4 g; fiber: 2 g; net carbs: 3 g; 76% fat, 20% protein, 4% carbs

Ingredient Tip:

Use thin–cut bacon for best results. It cooks at a similar rate to the asparagus and renders all of its fat, so the asparagus is cooked in delicious bacon drippings and the bacon is crisp.
