I love keto even though I am terrible at sticking to it. However, The Dirty, Lazy, Keto 5-Ingredient Cookbook might just make me a keto fanatic again.
Being gluten-free for years, it would seem to be easy to forgo a few more foods (goodbye, rice) and go full keto. After more than a year working from home, I definitely need to lose more than a few pounds. But, even though most gluten-free breads are horrible, I just can’t seem to let them go. I love that eating “dirty” by making 3 carb gram English Muffin Mates using this cookbook is okay for those who are (let’s face it) addicted to bread. The fact that the muffins are made using a mug in a microwave is a great example of the “lazy” part of this book’s diet plan. There are even a ground chicken, a zucchini, and a cauliflower pizza crust included for those pizza lovers out there.
I love the simplicity of all the recipes. But innovations that I would never thought of trying are also included. Avocado as a thickener in the Stunt Double Chocolate Malt? It works perfectly without changing the chocolate lusciousness of the drink. Heating up cottage cheese in a microwave? It’s surprisingly delicious. Vodka in a berry adult popsicle? Yes, please. Speaking of alcohol, there are five adult beverages included in the last chapter. Hey, you should be able to celebrate your new keto lifestyle with a drink, right?
The Dirty, Lazy, Keto 5-Ingredient Cookbook is highly recommended—even for those readers not committed to a full-time keto lifestyle. 5 stars!
