From the Inside Flap

Low-carb and comfort food are phrases you probably don’t associate with each other. If you, like 30 million other people, have ever been on a low-carb diet–or if you’re thinking of starting one because you’ve heard all the impressive new evidence showing how low-carb eating can turn your health around by keeping your insulin levels down and helping you lose weight–you probably know that low-carb foods aren’t usually described as "yummy." What’s been missing from low-carb diets are the comfort foods you crave–the breads, cakes, pastas, and pies that no low-carb plan ever allowed you to have–until now!

Now, with The Low-Carb Comfort Food Cookbook, you can eat such delicious foods as fried chicken, macaroni and cheese, waffles, Mexican favorites, pizza, and a wide variety of desserts–all while restricting your carb intake and getting thin and healthy. Bestselling authors Drs. Michael and Mary Dan Eades, authors of the phenomenal bestseller Protein Power, in concert with the creative genius of chef Ursula Solom, have revolutionized the low-carb diet, offering you easy-to-follow cooking techniques that use everyday ingredients in extraordinary, simple, and delicious new ways.

This one-of-a-kind cookbook features more than 300 fabulous recipes for scrumptious

low-carb breads, breakfasts, and light meals; satisfying soups, spreads, and gravies; incredibly comforting entrées; formerly forbidden Italian and Mexican favorites; and much more. Just imagine waking up to the smell of Nutty Cinnamon Buns and Waffles, munching on Almond Thins with Crab Dip, dining on Southern Fried Chicken with Pan Gravy or Breaded Pork Chops with Biscuits, enjoying a slice of Key Lime Pie or some Strawberry Shortcake . . . then finishing with a Chocolate Truffle. All while staying thin and looking terrific! This book is truly amazing.

The authors provide all the nutrition information you need to make your cooking and eating decisions, including protein and carbohydrate grams for each dish. So what are you waiting for? Get cooking with The Low-Carb Comfort Food Cookbook and see how easy–and yummy–a low-carb diet can be! --This text refers to an alternate Paperback edition.

After a year of losing 40 pounds eating according to their earlier book, Protein Power, I began searching for ways to expand my menus. I have bought several other cookbooks looking for adequate alternatives to baked goods, but was never happy with the results: Often too delicate, or too bitter, or they'd fall...
Now along comes Drs. Eades and Ursula Solom with recipes that are exactly what they advertise: Comfort Foods. Tonight, we enjoyed delicious Chili Con Carne with Black Soy Beans and slices of Best Whole Wheat Bread and butter. All low-carb, satisfying and delicious. For breakfast, we added a slice of Super Banana Bread mini-loaf to our plate of ham and eggs. Hard to believe it was low-carb, it tasted (and rose) just like the real McCoy.
Most of the recipes freeze, so I can make a variety of baked goods on the weekend, freeze and have them handy for days to come.
I can hardly wait to try the Cinnamon Rolls, Chocolate Chip Cookies, Elegant Biscuits and so much more.
If you enjoy a low-carb lifestyle, this book belongs in your arsenal.

If I only had one low carb cookbook, this would be the one (fortunately, I have many!) I've been cooking from a variety of low carb cookbooks, trying to find meals, snacks (especially snacks), desserts and other comfort foods that will please my family's palette while meeting my desire to eat fewer processed foods and fewer -- maybe no -- unhealthy foods (those I love and miss so much -- like donuts and white pasta, fresh baked breads and rolls -- I could go on and on!)
The intent of this book isn't necessarily to give you all the low carb recipes you'll ever need, but to provide you with tasty substitutes for those foods you really miss so you won't fall of the low carb wagon. These are comfort foods, sorely needed by me and most of my low carb friends!
A couple of the reviews I've read here seem to indicate the reviewers a) haven't used this cook book b) don't understand the logic behind low carb living or c) both.
The Magic Rolls are terrific -- yes, they call for flour, but not unprocessed white flour. No, it doesn't use sugar at all. For recipes needing sugar, they suggest a well-known sugar substitute. The rolls came out fabulously; we have used them as rolls, bagel substitutes, hamburger rolls etc. All of the ingredients were found in a large chain grocery store here in Ohio. The preparation didn't take too much hard work, I made a lot and froze what wasn't devoured (only takes a microwave moment to warm them up from frozen).
Why I love this book best -- I recognized many of their recipes, found (and used by me) scattered through other low carb books -- this one has all the ones I love tucked inside, plus more. And they have helpful low carb cooking information in the opening part of the book.

Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
There are thousands of delicious meals you can eat on a low carb diet, but sometimes you CRAVE those carbs. It might be pizza, or mashed potatoes, or other carb-rich foods. Here are ways to make low carb substitutions that are really tasty.
The book has 300 recipes, and in hardcover format is a bit hard to keep open and use. So I use this in conjunction with 500 Low Carb Recipes, which is my main cookbook
IMPORTANT NOTE: The introduction clearly states that all carb numbers in this book are for CARBS THAT COUNT so they explicitly state that the fiber numbers are ALREADY DEDUCTED. People on Atkins and other diets can rest assured that these numbers are the "real" carbs in each dish.
Comfort Foods fills in the gaps with the things you crave. There are lots of bread recipes, pancakes, crepes, mock mashed potatoes, eggplant parmigiana, low carb cheesecake, and much more. There are meals that fit the needs for those on the super-low-carb induction diet, as well as many meals that are great for those on a lifetime maintenance of their health and weight.
Since most of what we eat are fresh vegetables and meats, we don't usually need the comfort recipes in this book. But it is DEFINITELY good to have on the shelf, so that if we really decide we want to have pancakes or fresh bread or something "like" mashed potatoes to go with our turkey dinner, the solution is right there, easy to make and healthy too!

Well, it's been a month since I to got this for Xmas and I really love this cook book. It's my favorite of the 4 low-carb cookbooks I have. The pound cake is better than the real thing. The pancakes were good, but all the recipes I've made seem to be a bit bland (maybe lacking salt), nothing a nice pat of butter doesn't fix. The baking power biskets were quite good even if I messed up the hollandaise sauce for Eggs Benidict. I can't wait to try more of the recipes in this book.

The opening chapters do a great job of explaining the unfamiliar ingredients. I found all the flour replacements in a local health food store, Whole Foods (soy power, protein whey power, vital wheat gluten flour, whole wheat flour, etc.). I learned about the low-carb Black Soy Bean and made a wonderful chili (bean soup next?). This is a great book for us low-carb folks.
