OMG, So many recipes and they all sound so delicious!. At first I was disappointed that it didn't include pictures. It is always nice to have some idea of how the recipes look on a plate, but I can forgive that because there was no need for eye candy to make me have food cravings.
The recipes are divided in categories, starting with snacks and then grain substitute recipes, egg recipes, salads and vinagrettes, hot side-dishes, poultry, fish and seafood, beef, pork and lamb, main dish salads, soups, sauces, condiments and seasonings, beverages and desserts. Most of them are very simple to prepare, it includes keto adaptations to many classic dishes and from her previous books. It includes recipes inspired from other parts of the world, specially Mexican food but you can also find Middle Eastern and Asian cuisine flavors.
Other good points:
It is a friendly book: Dana's commentary at the beginning of each recipe makes me think that I'm reading someone's food blog about their homemade recipes.
Good design: I liked how the ingredients and nutritional information are on the left and the recipe on the center and right, it reminds me of recipe cards and feels more organized.
Nutritional Information: each recipe includes amount of carbs, fat, %calories from fat, protein, dietary fiber and net carbs.
Great intro: as with previous books, Dana explains in detail most of the ingredients she uses; their different presentations, alternatives, brands, etc. Don't skip the first two chapters if you are a beginner, it is truly important to get to know and choose the right ingredients.
