The Keto Reset Diet Cookbook

Mark Sisson, with Lindsay Taylor. Harmony, $27.99 (272p) ISBN 978-0-525-57676-1

In this solid, informative follow-up to The Keto Reset Diet, Sisson includes 150 recipes to give initiates as well as longtime followers more ketogenic mealtime options. Rather than ditching all carbs and sugars and diving deep into the admittedly difficult program, Sisson advises readers to slowly transition to the low-carb keto diet, integrating friendly snacks (dark chocolate, hard-boiled eggs) and replacing ingredients along the way. Once they’re on board, dieters are sure to appreciate Sisson’s creativity: radish crunch salad with citrus vinaigrette; crab-stuffed fish pinwheels; and a luscious crème fraiche spatchcocked chicken with creamy brussels sprouts are just a few of the surprises, which greatly outnumber expected dishes like bacon-wrapped sausage and chicken thighs. Sweets are a common hurdle for keto devotees, and while the courageous may opt for the suggested dill pickle soup (“something about the crunchiness and the salty acidity knocks down cravings,” Sisson asserts), they may be more drawn to chocolate pecan muffin tops or coconut-almond bites. Wherever readers fall on the keto spectrum, they’re likely to find new recipes to add to their rotation. [em](Nov.) [/em]
