Reviews - What do customers think about Busy People's Low-Carb Cookbook (Busy People Cookbooks)?
Cookbook is ok, but could be better Jan 9, 2007
I like the idea of this book, but it uses a lot of vegetarian foods that I don't particularly care for. Great for a start up vegetarian, or for a seasoned one, but not really for me. I kept the book, but will edit them more to my liking.
Lower-carb, NOT low-carb Jan 3, 2007
Ground meatless (some kind of vegetarian ground meat substitute by Morning Farms) is a staple in this author's recipes. But my biggest gripe is that these recipes are NOT low carb. They lean more toward being low-fat.
Sure, the recipes are lower in carbohydrates than most, but someone following Atkins or similar might be disappointed. Extra-thick Peach Milkshake, which use frozen peaches and fat-free whipped topping (which has sugar in it!) has 26 grams of carbs per serving. That is more than a day's worth of carbs allowed on the Induction plan..
Whole Wheat Muffin Bites: 22 grams per serving; Pork Pastry Squares: 32 grams; Taco Salad: 18 grams...and the list just goes on.
Now, if you aren't following Atkins or some other strict low-carb diet and are just looking to cut back on the carbs and the fat then this book could be a good choice. The recipes look to be simple and the Slow-Roasted Beef & Bell Peppers Stew (10grams) sounds yummy, as does the Zucchini Skillet Dish (6 grams)and Broiled Eggplant Italiano (12 grams).
Low Carb and low fat - is that what you really want? Feb 28, 2006
I've read through the whole book, but haven't actually tried any of the recipes yet. They sound good, but she uses non-fat products frequently. A good low carb diet needs good fats included in it. If I use these recipes I will be using products that still have the fat in them.
even kids like it Sep 14, 2005
This is my first review but I had to let people know that this book is so easy, fast and the best tasting food I ever made. We tried all kinds of new foods through this book that I normally wouldn't buy. I'm no cook but even my finicky kids loved these recipes. It's also nice to know we're eating healthier. Great book!!! Sincerely, Chris from NH
Must have cookbook Aug 22, 2005
I am a diabetic and have to follow a diet that closely monitors my carbohydrates. This book has delicious, easy recipes that everyone will enjoy. I love the simplicity - every recipe has less than seven ingredients.
