Keto Comfort Foods


Authors : Maria Emmerich - May 2, 2017

Keto Comfort Foods Book CoverThe ketogenic diet is all about nourishing and healing your body with nutrient-dense whole foods, as international bestselling author Maria Emmerich has demonstrated in her previous books, including "The Ketogenic Cookbook" (with Jimmy Moore) and "The 30-Day Ketogenic Cleanse". But food is more than just nourishment; food is tradition, food is love, and most importantly, food is a celebration. The mere thought of eating a particular meal or the smell of a favorite childhood dish can evoke positive memories, whether it's a simple Sunday dinner with family or a major life event. When you begin following the ketogenic diet, whether your goal is to promote weight loss, improve blood markers, or just enhance overall health and well-being, it's easy to forget to enjoy food. Some people fall into a drab routine of consuming the same dishes over and over, which can lead to boredom and frustration--and ultimately to the desire to fall back into old, poor eating habits. With "Keto Comfort Foods", Maria Emmerich reassures everyone on the keto diet that it isn't difficult at all to recreate those favorite foods and meals in healthy ways--you just need to use a little creativity. By using clever low- or no-calorie substitutions for sugar and scrubbing all recipes clean of gluten-containing additives, Maria has created an incredible resource for comforting home-cooked meals that are safe enough for everyone in the family and delicious enough for the most discerning eaters. These recipes are sure to become new family favorites! In "Keto Comfort Foods", Maria Emmerich has compiled her most soul-warming, happiness-invoking recipes. The book's more than 170 tantilizing, hearty comfort food recipes include everything from cinnamon rolls to steak fries, and from chicken cordon bleu to tiramisu cheesecake. Maria has covered all the bases, giving you the recipes and tips you need to make delicious and healthy versions of your favorite dishes.

Plant Based Diet


Authors : Millwood Media - March 19, 2012

Plant Based Diet Book CoverOne of the biggest problems in the diets of most people today is the fact that so much of our food consumption comes from processed meats and packaged foods.  Not only will this cause the body’s natural pH balance to shift, setting you up for problems, but it’s also going to cause you to place a high number of toxins in your body that will end up damaging your organs, causing blood sugar instability, and could even impact the way your brain functions.  By making the shift over to foods that are entirely natural, you eliminate the probability of these problems from ever occurring. If you’ve seen the outstanding documentary Forks Over Knives you know its premise that “most, if not all, of the degenerative diseases that afflict us can be controlled, or even reversed, by rejecting our present menu of animal-based and processed foods.” (If you haven’t seen the film and you’re contemplating a plant-based diet, it’s a must-watch. Rent it tonight).  The film gives an important overview of the 20-year China-Cornell-Oxford Project that led to findings that a number of diseases can be linked to the Western diet of processed and animal-based foods. Here are 101 of the best foods to be eating as part of your plant-based diet plan.
