Carbs By num­bers

Ladies in Racing - - Book Reviews - By San­dra Dun­bar & Meg Pell

RRP $ 24.95 Count­ing carbs? Then this recipe book is a must. All the recipes in the book have carb counts of 15g or less per serve and are per­fectly suited to the in­creas­ing num­ber of peo­ple who are look­ing for low carb recipe ideas. A na­tional 2014 study by the Grains & Legumes Nutri­tion Coun­cil states that there has been a 30 per cent fall in car­bo­hy­drate con­sump­tion over the past three years, which demon­strates the de­mand for a book such as this to be pub­lished. Ev­ery recipe has the fol­low­ing in­for­ma­tion: en­ergy ─ kilo­joules and calo­ries, pro­tein, to­tal fat, sat­u­rated fat, choles­terol, car­bo­hy­drate, sug­ars, di­etary fi­bre, vi­ta­min C, to­tal vi­ta­min A, sodium, potas­sium, cal­cium and iron. This easy-to-read ex­tended nu­tri­tional panel is a ma­jor fea­ture of the carbs by num­bers se­ries of recipe op­tion books. The 112-page book with a full colour pho­to­graph for ev­ery recipe in­cludes op­tions that many low-carb fol­low­ers may not ex­pect to find such as crunchy gra­nola, Ja­panese pan­cakes, tiramisu, pizza and choco­late cake. The recipes are also gluten free. There’s a good cross sec­tion of hot and cold recipes, veg­e­tar­ian and non-veg­e­tar­ian, and all are fam­ily-friendly. All the in­gre­di­ents are read­ily avail­able at su­per­mar­kets. Avail­able from www.carb­s­bynum­bers.com
