I started Keto early December, but decided to mix it with the Mediterranean diet as I wanted to focus on lower, quality carbs in my diet but not so restrictive I'd have to worry about some of the negative affects of Keto dieting - especially for older women. I find the two complement each other quite well - I follow the Keto bread / baking / dessert recipes mostly and Mediterranean for everything else. This is a combination I can easily maintain and hardly ever want to stray as it is very satisfying, even in the sweet departments. Anyway, this book is perfect. There is probably only 2 recipes I wouldn't normally make, but really only because I never had them before. The variety of recipes are those we all know just Ketofied. The Tips, Keto Baking Basics, explanation of alternative ingredients used, etc. is a great beginning to this book for people. I love the Nutrition facts broken down per serving after every recipe. It helps you work with your Macros for the day. I especially love that every 3rd or so recipe has a photograph - good number of photos in this book. I love that, photos make a recipe / cook book. I even appreciate the quality of the paper in this book - like smooth photo paper. I would not hesitate to purchase more recipe books written by Faith / Lara.
We’ve been Keto for years...and still miss “bread & bread like” stuff. This book has recipes for everything you miss: Bagels English muffins Sandwich breads I love every recipe I’ve tried and have made almost half of them.
I have tried the regular keto bread recipe and had to double to get a regular size Alice but it was good bread. I plan on trying many more recipes from this book. So many of online recipes taste eggy but this one didn't. Worth the money.
Bought it for keto biscuit recipe . Most of the recipes are good and give you a reasonable product but most have many ingredients, none of which I had on hand. Most of the ingredients are a little pricey, but once you buy they last. The book is well worth the price.
Is there some new way to get net carbs? Some of the recipes show the correct net carbs, if the math was done correctly, and others recipes do not match. What gives? Sandwich bread, cloud bread, sweet vanilla cream biscuits, press-in sweet crust, soft tortillas, banana nut quick bread, zucchini quick bread, pumpkin spice bread, basic muffins, corn bread muffins, blueberry muffins - the net carb count for the breads I have listed from the bread section of this book all appear to be off by at least 1 net carb and some, up to 12 net carbs! If the net carb formula (total carbs - fiber = net carbs) has changed, please let me know, because I am definitely confused when I look at these recipes! Please Advise! The recipes sound good, but I still need to pick up some ingredients. I will update my review after I bake some of the recipes.
Bought this book for my husband since we are on a keto diet and he is a diabetic. Not what I expected. This is not a keto baking bread book. The carbs are way too high to be successful! Misleading to sell a product that does not deliver what it states! Would not recommend!!!
