As for the ketogenic diet, since there seems to be a fair body of science both for and against it, I’ve come to the conclusion that it’s very good for meeting short term health goals (excellent for weight loss, increased energy, fitness performance, cognitive benefits, etc), but probably not so sturdy as a long-term diet plan (propensity to heart disease some years down the line). So to this end, I personally use it as a tool in my toolbox, and put it back again for a while when my goals are met.
Ketogenic diet and slow cooking aren’t common bedfellows, but Baker does well here to give a fairly rounded repertoire (not merely variations on soup and stew, as many will find come to mind when there’s talk of using a slow cooker), ranging all the way from breakfasts to desserts.
Some prior knowledge (or at least, the ability to go forth and Google) is assumed, as sometimes ingredients are composite items such as “keto-friendly marinara sauce”, without mentioning what a marinara sauce is, how to make it, or what makes a given version of it keto-friendly or not.
Most recipes require only the use of the slow cooker; a noteworthy minority do require the use of other things, for example a frying pan / skillet / sauté pan, and occasionally fancier equipment such as a culinary blow-torch (though Baker doesn’t mention it, raising the item high up next to a hot grill or browning iron can stand in for a culinary blow-torch, at a pinch).
Similarly, Baker refers to the use of the slow cooker’s high and low settings, combined with its timer. My slow cooker was built in the 1950s and doesn’t have an on/off button, let alone multiple settings or a timer feature, but if you have a slow cooker, you’ll know it’s pretty much impossible to go wrong regardless.
All in all, a fine collection of recipes, and while some ingredients (or kit) might not be readily available to hand, substitutions aren’t difficult to make.
After a concise but informative overview and explanation of the ‘Ketogenic Diet’ (high fat, low carbohydrates and adequate protein – listing the best choices for each category), Charlotte explains the concept of the Slow Cooker (a cooking appliance, which cooks food at a temperature that is lower than most other cooking methods – and how to use it). With this information she launches into a fine set of recipes she titles Ketogenic Slow Cooker Recipes. Each recipe is well presented with number of servings, nutritional value per serving, ingredients and instruction for preparation.
The recipes are divided into Breakfast recipes, Lunch recipes, Appetizer recipes, Soup and Stew recipes, Main Course recipes, and yes, even Dessert recipes. And the final remark is that the recipes are not the usual ones but instead a spectrum of global foods that are inviting and tempting and excellent for any family. This is a very fine choice for gaining a healthy diet and a healthy life. Grady Harp, November 17
