For the last month or so I’ve been beavering away working on something. It’s my first ebook made up of 30 low and slow carb dinner options. As anyone who’s read a bit of this blog will know I love white carbs more than anything. I love spaghetti bolognaise. I had a moment with mushrooms on toast so profound it put me in a magazine, and prompted our move overseas.
I grew up believing that since carbohydrates occupied the bottom of the food pyramid it was absolutely fine if I ate bread, potatoes and noodles all day.
And then my health got to a point where I just couldn’t.
Since I stopped using white carbohydrates as a culinary crutch I’ve become slimmer. I have more energy. I’ve been forced to become a bit more creative in the kitchen. And best of all, I’ve now reached a point where I can feed The Hungry One a low/slow carb meal so hearty he doesn’t then ask what we’re having for main course.
This 80 page ebook contains a whole bunch of new recipes and a couple of old favourites. It makes heroes out of pulses and includes a mix of lighter suppers and salads, sturdy braises and a final chapter of interesting sides to mix and match with the protein of your choice. There’s also a handy key to see just how many are suitable for vegetarians (lots).
It’s a month of lower carb dinners all in one place, nicely designed, illustrated and easy to navigate.

WHAT IS THIS BOOK
This book is a guide, of 30 recipes to show you how you can free yourself from the crutch of white carbohydrates for dinner. It is not an aggressive attack on potatoes, rice, pasta, bread or carb loving cultures. Heck, I love comfort foods more than anything. They just don’t always love me- and maybe they don’t love you so much either. Maybe you want more energy. Maybe you’ve been diagnosed with polycystic ovaries or one of a gamut of conditions that benefit from a slow/low carbohydrate diet. Maybe you want to drop some weight. Maybe you just want to get a bit more creative in the kitchen.
Here’s what I suggest. Read the recipes. Meet some new pulses. Play with some new flavours. Find salads and sides to mix and match with the proteins of your by choice. It’s at this point that I must say; this is not absolutist carb free doctrine. You’ll find pulses and some sweeter and starchier vegetables peppered through; a few meals contain corn, peas, carrots, pumpkin or beets. There’s a sly spoon of sugar or flour. This is a moderate approach. Here’s my suggestion. Do it for a month. At the end pick your favourites and insert them into your weekly rotation. That way the next time you have to answer ‘What’s for dinner?’ the default answer isn’t just another version of white stodge.
