Book release

Today is a very special day to me. It’s the official release date for my first cookbook in English, Low Carb High Fat Barbecue.

I’ve been waiting for this day for the last 1½ years, since I first contacted Skyhorse Publishing in New York and they decided to publish all three of my cookbooks.

LCHF Barbecue is available in hardcover and as an E-book on Kindle.

If you like my book, it would make me very happy if you took the time to write a review on Amazon. Just click on the picture below and it will take you directly to the page.

My books have been very popular here in Sweden, and now I hope they will inspire people all over the world to start cooking in a more healthy way.

LCHF has changed my life completely. I had a lot of pain and fatigue from a back injury that ended up requiring surgery, and after that, the onset of fibromyalgia.

This diet, free from sugar, starches, grains/gluten and high in natural fats, works very well for many of us, who are suffering from various health conditions.

You can read more about all the health benefits that you can achieve on a LCHF diet here at DietDoctor.com

To celebrate this day I give you one of the recipes from LCHF Barbecue.

Iced tea is a very refreshing drink that goes well both when you’re waiting for the charcoals to get ready for the grill, and as an alcohol-free drink anytime.

But don’t drink the ready-made product sold in cans—it contains lots of added sugar.

My iced tea gets its fresh taste from lemon and peppermint leaves. I use Earl Grey tea, but feel free to choose your favorite blend. The tea bags should steep in cold water to prevent the tea from turning bitter.

Lemons

Iced Tea with Lemon and Peppermint

  • 4 1/4 cups (1000 ml) cold water
  • 5 tea bags
  • 4 sprigs peppermint
  • juice of 1 lemon

Pour the cold water into a pitcher and add the tea bags. Leave the pitcher in the refrigerator overnight. One hour before serving, add the peppermint sprigs and lemon juice.

Add ice cubes and serve in glasses garnished with a fresh sprig of mint and a slice of lemon hanging over the rim of the glass.
