Dana Carpender is a believer in keeping it simple and freshly prepared whenever possible. None of the ingredients were hard to find at my supermarket except perhaps the low-carb imitation honey that shows up in a few recipes. Of the dozen or so main dish recipes I tested in 200 LCSCR I can honestly say that seven were big hits with my family, a few were just okay and just one was bad. All of them cooked on time and just as predicted. There were some very satisfying desserts toward the end, with several variations on cheesecakes and custards that turn out splendidly in my slow cooker. Although I do not normally have a use for appetizer recipes, there is even a section for that - which contains an outstanding hot artichoke dip.
I am impressed with the author's diligence in keeping most recipes under 10 grams of net carbs per serving. Dana really does stick to the universal "rules" of low carb dieting; lots of veggies and meats, occasional artificial sweetening, a sprinkling of fruits now and then and a bare representation of grains and sugars -- and only when absolutely necessary for flavor, never as filler. She is good at innovating more nutritious subs for common starchy side dish ingredients; fauxtatoes (cauliflower) and mashed turnips are big players at her low carb table. Eat the 200 LCSCR way and you will probably have better, more varied natural nutrition than ever before in your typical American diet.
The recipes for lc condiments & sauces are a big bonus to those of us who suffer from sticker shock at the supermarket's low carb pricing practices. Readers of her other lc recipe books may find some of these items familiar, but hey, it is convenient to have them all in one place. And as for convenience, well...slow cooking is the essence of convenience to modern time-challenged dieters.
Did I make it sound as if this book is one of the best kept secrets for low carbers? I hope so, because it is.

I have lost 30 pounds so far (only have 35 to lose) and changed my way of eating forever. I absolutely LOVE the low-carb way of living, however one thing that is frustrating is that with such a busy schedule, "convenience" foods are out of the question now (especially since I don't eat ANY type of processed junk...).
So I actually first borrowed this book from my local library - and just ordered it off of amazon as I've realized this book is too invaluable NOT to own!
Since I don't buy "convenience" foods anymore (such as frozen dinners for lunch, etc...) I have to really be diligent in making my own lunch to take to work with me. This book is GREAT for making dinner to be ready when I get home from a long day at work (and then a few hours at the gym...) and making more than my husband and I eat for dinner leaves me the perfect amount to take with me the next day for lunch!
You could almost say this book has helped me #1 (obviously) stay on my LC plan easily and #2 helps me save money because I'm not buying my lunch every day now!
Now, not every recipe is "perfect"...I tried one (Beer Cheese Soup) and just didn't get it to work for me...but almost all other recipes I've tried so far were FABULOUS!
Beef short ribs
Mexican Beef & Bean Soup
Onion Mustard Pork Chops
just to name a few off the top of my head.
I absolutely recommend this book to ANYONE who eats low-carb.
Her section on Ingredients, Common and Not So Common is wonderful. Here is the secret to guar and xanthan gums! Who would have believed that low sugar marmalade and jams would have fewer carbs than the all fruit kind. And the vegetables and side dishes, who ever bothered with a slow cooker for side dishes?? The idea of cooking custard in the slow cooker is totally new to me. Custard is one of my favorite desserts. The information in this book is invaluable for diabetics.
I checked both of her books out of the library and kept them until mine arrived from Amazon. If you must live on a low carb diet, this book and her 500 Low Carb Recipes book are must-haves for your cookbook library.
Don't fear the low carb books thinking you'll need wild special order ingredients, it's just not like that. Most of what she calls for is laying around your kitchen already. And much of the rest she'll even tell you how to make!
I've also found that I like the food. Yep, she makes delish stuff happen! Some are things I would do anyway, but reading through, I always find a long list of things I hadn't thought of on my own. She always comes through for me.
