Let me tell you a little about the cookbook itself, because I believe in this project wholeheartedly and it’s more than just a collection of recipes. Low Carbing Among Friends is a unique book in that every recipe is both low carb AND gluten free. Although I am not fully gluten free myself, gluten is quickly becoming recognized as contributing to a whole host of health issues, not just celiac disease. I believe that more and more people will turn to a gluten free lifestyle in an effort to regain health and energy. And whether you choose a low carb lifestyle for health reasons, such as I do, or for weight loss, cutting out or reducing gluten-based products in your diet can only help. I know there are plenty of low carb cookbooks out there and plenty of gluten free as well, but this book may be among the first that is both low carb and gluten free.
In addition to over 300+ recipes, Low Carbing Among Friends also contains expert advice from some of the leading medical and low carb authorities in the world. Two of the low carb world’s key players, Dana Carpender of Hold The Toast and Jimmy Moore of Living La Vida Low Carb, will be contributing their two cents in this book. Our medical experts include Dr. Briffa (Waist Disposal), Dr. Eenfeldt (Diet Doctor), Dr. Parker (The Low Carb Mediterranean Diet), Dr. Su (Carbohydrates Can Kill). Through their own research and practice, each of these doctor has independently come to the conclusion that low carb, gluten free eating is critical for both health and weight loss. So I think the timing of our book, Low Carbing Among Friends, couldn’t be more spot on.
This book is also unique in that it is made up of 5 “mini” cookbooks, each authored by a different low carb recipe developer. So you will get the benefit of five different styles of cooking and baking, and I am quite certain that all of us has our own perspective to share. My fellow contributors include Jennifer Eloff (Splendid Low Carbing), Maria Emmerich (Maria’s Nutritious and Delicious Journal), Lisa Marshal (24/7 Low Carb Diner) and Kent Altena (Atkins Diet Geek). We’ve all had our own experiences with a low carb diet and with low carb, gluten free cooking, and I couldn’t be more proud to be a part of this group.
The price of the book is a reasonable $19.99 USD, and we have a website, created by Jennifer’s son, up and running, AmongFriends.us. The first printing has SOLD OUT! This is just such an exciting project to be a part of. I hope you will do me the favour of heading over to our site and checking it out.
And even if you are not a low carber yourself, consider this book for your family and friends who are. The low carb lifestyle is back with a vengeance, as many people are beginning to recognize it as one of the healthiest ways of eating. Diabetics like myself, whose health can depend on it, can always use more ideas for meals, snacks and treats, especially in a world full of tempting carby and gluten-filled foods. Celiacs will also appreciate the many recipes and the expert advice in this book. I really believe that with all the wonderful contributors, Low Carbing Among Friends will be a must-have cookbook for the low carb, gluten free lifestyle. Please help me spread the word.
