The Keto Cookbook

If you are on a ketogenic diet, or have a family member on a ketogenic diet, this book has all the fundmentals and recipes for variety for family menus. A ketogenic diet is extremely high in fat and should only be followed by those under the care of medical doctors, such as a nutritionist, dietician, neurologist, or other medical doctor. This book isn't a low-carb diet book for those interested in low-carb recipes. It is specifically designed for ketogenic diets.

Having said all that, it is a thoughtfully presented and researched cookbook. The authors, Dawn Marie Martenz and Laura Cramp, have created recipes that look and taste as delicious as possible for anyone on the diet. Martenz's story is inspirational. The choice of recipes ensures that if one family member is on the diet, then they can still eat the same menu item, just one portion specifically measured and cooked separately for one person. For example, there are recipes for pigs in a blanket, tacos, cupcakes, sushi, pizza, and crackers. So if the rest of the family is having a pizza for dinner, the person on the ketogenic diet may have a specially prepared pizza made for them, and the whole family can sit down together and eat the same menu item.

This book has color pictures and precise measurements for recipes ensuring a particular number of calories and ratio fat to carbs are met on specific diets that are already calculated.

If you have been diagnosed with a medical condition, such as epilepsy, and a medical doctor has advised you to go on a ketogenic diet, this would be a great cookbook to have in the kitchen.
