I know that many families and especially, moms, will be well served by this book.
Gregory M. Speed
That being said, the recipes in The Keto Cookbook are a great way to learn how to cook ketogenic meals at the very highest ratio.
Steve
Maybe I didn't look into it enough, but I was expecting more cookbook and less of the other stuff.

My son has been on the Ketogenic Diet for epilepsy for over 3 years (as a note, this product is focused on those who use the Ketogenic Diet for medical reasons...not body builders or those who wish to reduce). He's pretty picky and I've spent a lot of time and trial and error finding meals which will work for him.

This book is written by a dietician and a mother who has a child on the diet. There is a lot of experience written into this book, including how to organize your kitchen to help your child get used to the diet (not leaving things that they can't have in the open), what tools are handy, letters to caregivers/schools, and what kind of food preparation works best in an emergency (no stores or electricity).

One of the best things about this book is that all of the recipes work around the usual cream + a meal or oil + a meal. Many kids get tired of that but there seem to be few meals which can accept the fat load necessary for a keto meal. This book works to create recipes with the fat in the meal.

Recipe highlights include:
breakfast cookies
pigs in a blanket
fruit pizza
microwaved bacon and eggs
protein waffle
chicken nuggets
quesadilla with creamy avocado dip
cream of chicken soup
tacos
bake and freeze pizza
spaghetti carbonara
spaghetti alfredo
pork stir fry with ginger cream soda
broccoli, bacon, and blue cheese melt
no-bake tropical cream cheese bars
apples and peanut butter dip
no-bake chocolate snack bars
dairy-free yogurt (and parfaits)
fudge popsicles
vanilla cupcakes

There are 96 recipes with a good mix child-friendly and slightly-more-adventurous. Most of those recipes (@60) have a full color photo at the beginning of the recipe section.

Thank you for such a wonderful book. I have a granddaughter who has been on the ketogenic diet for the past year. I have struggled to understand the diet, along with its exacting details of fats, proteins and carbs, weighed out in grams, in a 4 to 1 ratio. This book clearly provides menus and wonderful pictures of food (for breakfast, lunch and dinner), already balanced in proper ratio. (4:1). I have purchased this book, not only for myself but for my family so that when our granddaughter visits, we can properly feed her. This book helps one realize that the diet is essentially medicine, not just food when properly calculated in calories, & grams of protein, fat and carbs. I know that many families and especially, moms, will be well served by this book.
The other review was off base. I checked the index. It does seem to be out of sync and should be fixed by the publisher. However, the Table of Contents and the pictures of food do sync with the proper pages and menus described. It is silly to judge a book by its index and not content. As I said, this book will be a god-send to families with an epileptic disorder.

Format: Paperback
I would love to give this book five stars. I really would. But I'm a professional editor, and whoever copyedited this book needs to give the publishers their money back. For example, in every single place where the author refers to the aisle of a supermarket, it's an "isle." And that's not the only misspelling I noted. The indexing is just as bad. It's VERY distracting and seriously detracts from what would have been an otherwise remarkable and outstanding book. (It also makes me worry about their attention to detail in more crucial areas, like the recipe measurements...) Note to demosHealth: If you need a good editor, call me.

Pet peeves aside, I LOVE this book. My family does not deal with the severe forms of epilepsy that the ketogenic diet is designed to treat, but my children and I all suffer from severe migraines and I have a glucose processing disorder, so we follow a higher fat, lower carbohydrate diet than most of the general population. I was curious to see what tips and tricks I could pick up from people for whom carbohydrate is, essentially, poison.

The recipes that I have tried have been delicious. The authors were successful in their attempt to minimize carbohydrate content while maximizing flavour and visual appeal. The sample letters for various community contacts who may be responsible for a child's meals during time away from a regular caregiver will be an excellent resource for parents who need to communicate the severity of a seizure disorder to non-medical personnel. And the spaces for a family's dietician to write in measurements as they work together to tweak recipes to a child's individual needs will obviously be invaluable.

We've found it's easy to get stuck in a rut while doing the ketogenic diet with our 2 year old. We find a couple meals she likes, then we stick with it for months until she's tired of it. Dawn's book helps us break that cycle by offering some really inventive recipes to use. I can tell she's invested a lot of time exploring different meals during her own keto experience. With this book, she shares that experience with us.

I think the book's layout is good. There are basically two tables of contents, one with meal titles and another of pictures. My wife and I get lots of recipe inspiration from this book, and are personally inspired by Dawn's life.
