About the Author
Maria Emmerich is a wellness expert in nutrition and exercise physiology. She is the author of several cookbooks and three nutritional guidebooks, including the global bestseller The Ketogenic Cookbook and Quick & Easy Ketogenic Cooking. Maria’s blog, mariamindbodyhealth.com, offers a unique combination of innovative recipes using alternative ingredients to less-healthy options and easy-to-understand explanations of why these options are better for our health.
Maria’s success stems from her passion for helping others reach and sustain optimal health through programs and education that work on a personal level. She understands the connection between food and how it makes us all feel inside and out. Her specialty is brain chemical neurotransmitters and how they are affected by the foods we eat. After struggling with her weight throughout her childhood, she decided to study health and wellness so she could help others who are discouraged by their appearance and do not feel their best. The nutrient-rich, relatively high-fat dietary approach that she developed for herself and the exotic, little-known replacements for typical high-glycemic starchy foods and sugar are what finally gave her total peace with food, something she never imagined possible.

I haven't had the book for very long but here are the recipes i have made from the book so far. Her bone broth, Flappers pancakes that are super fluffy and closest i have tasted so far to regular pancakes. her keto bread which i have found much easier to cook on a flat cookie sheet and then cut into 12-16 squares, it makes for a much easier sandwich bread slice and even. Her creamy chicken Picante, glazed chocolate donuts, Persian Hot chocolate OMG YUMMY! add the butter. soo good!!! And her bacon poppers. Seriously so far everything has been fantastic. I don't know how we would do it without Mrs. Emmerich. We have felt better in one week healthwise than we have in a very very long time.
Besides the food, the nutritional information in here is also very useful. Each recipe has the macronutrient profile including calories, fat, protein, carbs, and fiber, which is really helpful in making sure I reach my daily goals. If you're not a numbers person, the recipes even have a meter rating of "low" to "high" keto. There is also an easy to understand explanation of the sugar alternatives, erythritol and stevia.
- Almost 200 recipes
- Useful macronutrient information
- Easy to follow recipes
- The food so far are delicious (I've made fried chicken, chocolate muffins, browned butter cheese fondue)
- The recipes are fairly easy to make and don't require a culinary degree
- A useful recipe index in the back to easily pick a recipe to try
- Too many decisions on what I should make next.
Things I love about the book:
*has a brief intro at the beginning with some information about ingredients.
*an intro about how to read the recipes (i.e - whether it is nut, dairy or egg free or whether there is an option to make it that way)
*a couple of the recipes have the nutritional information for various ways of making it (ie. without the sauce)
*every recipe has nutritional information plus a meter that tells if the recipe is Low Med or High ketogenic
*a list of the recipes with pictures at the back of the book
As I mentioned, this is the 5th book that I've purchased from this author and I've found no repeat recipes in this book (except the bone broth and keto buns) from any of the other books. In fact, I just made a Blue Cheese salad dressing which was delicious (from the Quick and Easy book) and there is a different Blue Cheese Dressing recipe in this book as well.
I've already tabbed a bunch of the pages to make recipes in the near future. Some of the recipes that I've tabbed and some prepared are:
*Beef stew (delicious and freezable)
*Scalloped Fauxtatoes (delicious)
*Chicken and gravy cobbler (wow -it's good and the biscuits are delicious)
*BBQ chicken lasagna (delicious)
*BBQ Pulled pork sandwiches with bacon slaw (Very good- needed a bit more to the sauce for my palate so I added low sugar bbq sauce)
*Chicken Pot pies ( even better the second day. I plan on making a bunch and freezing them)
*Schnitzel (Very good alternative to the breaded version)
*Maple Bacon Ice cream
*Death by Chocolate Cheesecake
* Blt stuffed mushrooms ( definite hit- I just made them two days ago and I already bought more mushrooms to make them again)
*Clam chowder (I'm eating this right now. Very delicious)
*Sunday pot roast

Maria definitely does not disappoint with her recipes. I plan to buy her next book as well.
