THE CARBOHYDRATE ADDICT'S NO CRAVINGS COOKBOOK: 200 All-New Low-Carb Recipes to Satisfy Every Craving

Judging from this book's title, readers might think it was a cookbook to help curb carbohydrate cravings. But the subtitle tells the real story: these are low-carb recipes designed to satisfy the kind of cravings that can strike any eater: for foods that are creamy, hearty, cheese-filled, spicy hot, crunchy or tangy. The authors also address cravings for specific cuisines: Chinese, Italian, Japanese, etc. Since this is their 12th Carbohydrate Addict's cookbook, the Hellers assume readers are already on the low-carb bandwagon. The goal of this book, then, is to provide fun and interesting recipes to keep the low-carb dieter from getting bored. Cauliflower stands in for rice in Curried Okra (with the additional tip that okra is a no-carb way to thicken soups and stews); Winter Night Tuna Melt is served warm on lettuce leaves, and Porcupine Cheese Ball is a party food made with cheddar cheese, cream cheese, mayonnaise and crushed pork rinds, scooped onto celery sticks. The recipes for these high protein (and often high fat) dishes are easy to follow and often begin with entertaining and personal stories about their origins. Health issues are left to the judgment of readers and their doctors, and only the carbs, not the grams of protein or fat, are provided for each recipe. Agent, Mel Berger. (Jan.)
