NAMED ONE OF THE BEST COOKBOOKS OF THE YEAR BY BUZZFEED
There's a reason that the ketogenic diet has become so wildly popular: It truly works! And weight loss is just the beginning. Studies have shown that the keto diet stabilizes mood, raises energy levels, controls blood sugar, lowers blood pressure, improves cholesterol, and more.
Unfortunately, many people are intimidated by keto--they don't have a lot of time to cook, they have a whole family to feed, or they worry that they'll miss their favorite meals. That is why Maya Krampf created her now hugely popular website, Wholesome Yum, to share easy keto recipes all with ten ingredients or less. And now, in her first cookbook, Maya is determined to show people that a keto lifestyle does not have to be complicated, time-consuming, unsustainable, or boring.
The Wholesome Yum Easy Keto Cookbook features 100 super-simple, I-can't-believe-that's-keto recipes including flourless chocolate chip peanut butter waffles, sheet pan sausage breakfast sandwiches, crispy keto chicken fingers, spaghetti squash ramen soup, keto garlic bread sticks, cinnamon roll pizza, and much more. You don't have to give up your favorite foods--virtually anything you like to eat can be made keto, and delectably so. The book also features a primer on the keto diet, essential pantry-stocking tips, and a section dedicated to creating Maya's signature "fathead" keto dough that is used to prepare delicious keto breads, pastries, tortillas, and more.
Krampf, creator of the WholesomeYum blog, debuts with a collection of 100 approachable, keto-friendly dishes. Recipes for expected fare such as chili, zucchini, and squash pastas; cauliflower fried rice; and shakshuka are all here, and Krampf helpfully focuses on practicality, offering dishes that are simple to prepare and ingredients that are easily sourced. Even family members who don't follow the keto plan will enjoy crunchy chicken tenders rolled in crushed pork rinds; Thai beef lettuce wraps; five ingredient broccoli-cheese soup; decadent bacon-wrapped onion rings; and a lush cheesecake. Krampf's Fat Head Dough recipe is a key component throughout a versatile substitute for pizza or bread dough made of mozzarella, cream cheese, eggs and a low-carb flour, the dough can be used for bagels, bread sticks, pizza crust, gnocchi, and even spanakopita. Krampf provides nutritional information for each recipe, as well as tips on making the right dietary choices and managing cravings. This is a fine entry point for those curious about keto, as well as for readers interested in incorporating healthier dishes into their diet.
