Low-carb and comfort food are words seldom seen together in the same sentence, much less the same cookbook. While low-carb dieting has taken North America by storm and has helped more than 25 million people lose weight and normalize their insulin levels, low-carb living has usually meant lots of meat and little to no bread, pasta, pizza, desserts, and so on. Low-carbers have been craving comfort foods for years! Now, with the revolutionary The Low-Carb Comfort Food Cookbook, dieters can eat such delicious foods as bread, fried chicken, pasta, Mexican foods, pizza, and a wide variety of desserts while simultaneously restricting their carb intake, thereby helping maintain insulin levels for optimum health. Bestselling authors Dr. Michael Eades and Dr. Mary Dan Eades, authors of the phenomenal bestseller Protein Power, in concert with the creative genius of chef Ursula Solom, use unique, easy, and practical cooking techniques and ingenious lower-carb ingredients like ground nuts, bran, and soy in order to create yummy--and comforting--treats that help readers keep their weight down and look and feel great. This amazing book covers everything readers would want, from low-carb breads, breakfasts, lunches and light entrees, soups, salads, and veggies to comforting meat and fish entrees, Italian and Mexican favorites, and irresistible desserts. With more than 300 scrumptious recipes for such delights as Southern fried chicken (with gravy!), breaded scallops, old-fashioned macaroni and cheese, cinnamon buns, fettuccine alfredo, enchiladas, zucchini fritters, eggplant parmigiana, chocolate chip cookies, cheesecake, chocolate truffles, several flavors of ice cream, and much, much more, this comprehensive, easy-to-follow cookbook will have even the finickiest eater on a low-carb meal plan in no time.
