The Keto Reset Diet Cookbook: 150 Low-Carb, High-Fat Ketogenic Recipes to Boost Weight Loss: A Keto Diet Cookbook
by Mark Sisson
This Keto cookbook is a mixed bag for me. On one hand, everything I tried from it was stellar: The Sticky Brussels Sprouts were super easy and absolutely delicious, the Triple Coconut Cauliflower Rice – another really tasty side dish we served with a thai chicken, and the Everything Cheese Balls was a very yummy snack! On the other hand, there are a lot of ….unusual… shall we say, recipes included that didn’t even entice me to do anything more than flip to the next page. Chopped Liver, Crispy Dandelion Greens with Hazelnuts, and Beef Heart with Mushrooms being three examples. (Ummm… no. I’m not feeding heart from any animal to my family, thanks – but no thanks. I know it’s extremely healthy. I don’t care.)
This is a very sturdy, heavy hardback book. It’s full of lots of color photos and it’s very easy to navigate. I suppose this sounds a bit sexist, but really, it says “man book” all over it. The theories inside I believe to be accurate, though for anyone doing dirty/lazy keto, it might be a little intense. As a former(?) athlete, he pushes for a clean, natural way of eating, which is really what will make your body function at optimal levels, but it’s hard to do.
My overall opinion on this cookbook is that the recipes included are really good ones and have been tried and tested over and over till they are perfect – but not designed for the typical American family who wants fast and kid friendly. It’s hard enough to stay motivated on this diet without having to scout out exotic ingredients and prepare new dishes – and convince your kids it’s not poison! There were a lot of other tasty recipes I marked to try, but I had to return it to the library and didn’t get a chance to do them all with Thanksgiving falling right at the end of my checkout time. Overnight Nutty Chia Pudding, Bone-in Butter Chicken, Lemony Baked Chicken all sounded like meals my family would be on board with. Maybe next time around since I’m always looking for good, fast, and healthy recipes.
I love Mark’s personal mission statement on his website:
