Axe (Keto Diet), founder of the Dr. Axe natural health website, broadens the culinary landscape for followers of the high-fat, low-carb keto diet in this collection of 125 approachable recipes. Regardless of one’s diet plan, Axe offers such enticing dishes as baked spinach eggs with sun-dried tomatoes and cheddar cheese; chicken chorizo chili; and cashew chicken lettuce cups. Hearty meals include beef Bolognese with zucchini noodles, and eggplant rollatini, as well as a nice selection of filling smoothies and shakes for breakfast or lunch. To help manage cravings between meals, Axe offers snack options such as chicken wings and “potato” salad (Axe substitutes cauliflower), as well as dips made from artichokes or roasted cauliflower and dill. Axe offer suggestions for supplemental vitamins and tips on dining out, among them ordering a meat and cheese board in lieu of pizza, or a veggie omelet instead of a breakfast sandwich. (He also includes a list of keto-friendly chains to help keep dieters on track). While the recipes are not groundbreaking, this should satisfy home cooks starting out with keto and veterans in search of new dishes to add to their rotation. (Nov.)
