The classic saying “You can have your cake and eat it too” is now true thanks to Maya Krampf’s new cookbook, The Easy Keto Carboholics’ Cookbook, 100 Low Carb Comfort Food recipes with 10 Ingredients or Less.
The cookbook has been receiving rave reviews.
A keto cookbook for serious carb cravings “Seriously, some of these dishes are absolute wizardry. Chewy, yeasty bread, the most exquisite cheesecakes, ridiculously realistic “sweet” potatoes — and no fake ingredients to achieve their flavors and textures! So impressed with this book and excited to serve these to my family. I don’t think they’ll be able to tell the difference from the high-carb versions!” J. Suazo
The Easy Keto Carboholics’ Cookbook, gives the reader the ability to enjoy the carbs you miss most which includes bread, pasta, rice, potatoes, desserts, and more–without sacrificing their goals, using artificial ingredients, or spending hours in the kitchen.
The keto diet is a natural, low carb way of eating that has demonstrated numerous benefits, from weight loss to energy levels and more. But it’s not always easy to give up carbs and comfort foods. Now, you don’t have to low carb recipes for all the carb-filled foods that keto lifestyle followers miss, including:
- Soups & Sandwiches
- Potatoes & Rice
- Mexican Fried Foods
“I’m so excited for this new book! Over the years, what I hear most often from readers is that they miss their favorite carb-filled foods when trying to stick to a low carb lifestyle — bread, pasta, potatoes, rice, pizza, etc. These are also some of the most popular recipes on my website. My first book, The Easy Keto Cookbook, has some recipes like this as well, but for my second book, The Easy Keto Carboholics’ Cookbook, I decided to fully dedicate it to these foods that people miss the most — in the easiest, most approachable way possible.
I have always been interested in nutrition — I wish I would have focused on it more in college, but I did take some courses and was one away from a nutrition minor. I got into low carb and healthy cooking in my twenties when I wanted to get healthier, and was surprised (but should not have been!) at how much better it made me feel. I’m now a big believer in unprocessed, whole foods, no matter what kind of diet you follow. I started WholesomeYum.Com to have a place to record my healthy recipes. I never imagined it would become so popular and am so grateful that it did! It’s so gratifying to see my recipes helping others eat healthier and feel better. Today, we offer several components to help people do that. It has been so much fun seeing what readers are making from my book! So far, the most popular recipes have been the Soft Sandwich Rolls & Buns, Chewy Chocolate Chip Cookies, and 3-Ingredient Egg Noodles.”
Q: Summer months are upon us, what is your best advice to start a healthy eating journey?
A: The best way to start is to just eat real, whole foods instead of processed products. It’s something I’m working to impart on my kids (5 and 7) and I tell them, “If it grows from the ground, swims in the water, or runs around, it’s good for you to eat.” Of course, there are exceptions to this, but it’s a good rule of thumb that’s easy for anyone to understand. All my recipes use whole food ingredients. Healthy dinner recipes are a good place to start since “what’s for dinner?” is always the stressful part of the day. For those wanting to do keto, my guide to starting a keto diet is the best place to start.
Q: What foods should people avoid?
A: Refined sugar, grains, and processed foods. Just cutting out these foods will make a huge difference. For keto, take a look at my keto food list and avoid anything not on that list.
Q: How can they be replaced with low carb alternatives?
A: There are dozens of replacements in my cookbook for bread, pasta, bread, pizza, potatoes, rice, and even desserts — it just depends on the type of food you are looking to replace. I also have lots of options for this on my website.
Q: Do you need to do Keto to lose weight and count calories?
A: No, you don’t have to do keto to lose weight, but it does work better and is easier to maintain than other weight loss diets. Weight loss is a bit complex. The simplistic explanation is you lose weight when calorie intake is less than calories expended. However, insulin and other hormones also play a key role in weight loss. Some of the reasons keto works so well for weight loss is it regulates insulin response (insulin release, which occurs when we eat sugar, makes our bodies hold onto fat and also leads to more hunger), regulates hunger, and makes it easier to feel full and satisfied.
