I bought the 3 books you linked to below. I did not care for them. I'm trying to eat food in it's natural state. Use fewer ingredients. I was addicted to aspartame for years- don't want to get addicted to any artificial sweeteners again!

Thank you for suggesting those cookbooks! They truly are wonderful resources. Anybody else looking for tasty and reasonable recipes needs to AT LEAST *look* at the offerings there. Delectable!

If you haven't seen the book on cooking with coconut flour, I recommend that one highly, too.

EXOTEC - I was the team member who had posted about these cookbooks (Lowcarbing Among Friends). I'm glad you feel the same way I do about these particular cookbooks.

I got them out again today, and I noticed on the front that the recipes are also gluten free. A bonus for us because wheat or vital wheat gluten can be in so many of the low carb recipes. Even Atkins baking mix they sell has vital wheat gluten in it. I heard that Dana Carpendar is going to redo all of her recipes to exclude vital wheat gluten.

Today, I noticed that there is a low carb baking mix in the cookbooks. It has almond flour or almond meal in it. I'm going to mix up a big batch to replace in my flour cannister.

I found out about these by watching a video by a guy who had a lot of success doing Atkins. He has lots of videos on Youtube, and on one video he was talking about how he and some friends got together and contributed recipes for these cookbooks. And most of them are Induction Friendly. He goes by the name Bowulf on Youtube.

I really liked the 1001 low carb recipes. It has recipes for all kinds of eggs, bread, sweats, and sauces. The section on sauces is really good because you can't find ketchup, bbq sauce, or other sauces that don't have sugar in the stores.

I have a *really* nice set of books I acquired recently from "Low-Carbing Among Friends." It's a series of 3 spiral-bound cookbooks with some tips and tricks, notations, and nutritional info interspersed (unobtrusively). I'm absolutely LOVING the recipes.

I want mostly good basic food, with classic, familiar flavors. While I'll venture out into spicier things now and then, I don't want the majority of a cookbook to be specialty items like this. I want the stuff I can come home home to and not be challenged by unusual tastes. These recipes fit "my bill" very well. A nice adjunct is that several listings are for making your own basics: mayo, rubs, preserved fruit, etc.

These books can be ordered via their website:
www.AmongFriends.us
I checked it after seeing another Sparker recommend it, and it's well worth it!

Another book I really like is Nourishing Traditions. It has a little more nutritional background, but is similar in scope. A nice niche cookbook is one called "Cooking With Coconut Flour." I believe I've posted a review on our Book Reviews thread here. The recipes there are developed FOR coconut flour - not adapted to it.

I've got a couple other cookbooks I like, but I don't have them handy at the moment. When I get my hands on them, I'll amend this or repost.

I've like Dana Carpender's books as well. She has some recipes posted on line too. I got several of her books out of the library first and then ordered some.

The best source for quick, easy, tasty, mostly fairly inexpensive low carb meals that use stuff you probably have on hand is Linda's Low Carb Menus and Recipes at www.genaw.com/lowcarb/recipes.html .

If you want a printed on paper cookbook, try Dana Carpender's 1001 Low Carb Recipes, which is mostly a combination of recipes from her earlier cookbooks. She also has 15 Minute Low Carb Recipes: Instant Recipes for Dinners, Desserts, and More!, though I haven't found many recipes I use in it. Several of them sound good, I just haven't made them.
