Atkins for Life Low-Carb Cookbook

Just when it seems there could be nothing more to add to the low-carb canon, here's another supplement to the Atkins juggernaut. An enthusiastic, conversational companion cookbook to the bestselling Atkins for Life , the book often suggests readers use Atkins brand ingredients (such as pasta, bread, and pancake and waffle mix). Still, the 250 recipes that Atkins (widow of Robert C. Atkins) presents are simple enough for kitchen novices and varied enough to make the prospect of low-carb dieting less daunting. Atkins includes nutritional information, specifics on which phase of the diet plan each recipe falls into and cooking tips. Entries range from fairly commonplace low-carb fare (such as Minted Lamb Chops with Mango-Cucumber Salad or Asparagus, Pepper, and Goat Cheese Frittata) to surprisingly Atkins-friendly pastas and sweets (like Pasta with Gorgonzola and Walnuts, and Applesauce Pumpkin Muffins). With this volume's recipes for all occasions, including weeknight suppers, dinners for one, brown-bag lunches, and holidays and parties, Atkins devotees can no longer use lack of selection as an excuse for slipping off the wagon.
