This review is from: Low Carb High Fat and Paleo Slow Cooking: 60 Healthy and Delicious LCHF Recipes

I’m a BIG FAN of everything that this book is about–low-carb, high-fat, Paleo, LCHF, and, of course, RECIPES that fit that template. Birgitta Höglund is the master of creating delicious and nutritious recipes made with real food that nourish the body for people attempting to eat a healthier lifestyle.

It’s Time To Fire Up The Grill And Get Healthy By Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Man on December 10, 2015

Who doesn’t love barbecue? Especially as the months get warmer and the grills come out of hibernation from the winter, nothing tastes better than some well done barbecue. While many people don’t see this as health food, for Birgitta Höglund it’s DEFINITELY a part of her healthy low-carb, high-fat lifestyle.

LCHF is a concept that has taken the world by storm and Birgitta is on the front lines of sharing this through her incredible books. This is a fabulous first book to get if you are new to low-carb, high-fat eating because you’ll be amazed at how delicious it really is. Fire up the grill and get healthy!

The Ketogenic Cookbook

The Ketogenic Cookbook

A Beautiful Cookbook

Some time ago, I recieved a very nice cookbook delivery from the US.
The sender was Jimmy Moore, the man behind the blog “Livin’ La Vida Low – Carb“, who sent me a copy of his latest book.

This is his first cookbook, co-authored with Maria Emmerich, a very well-known
cookbook author within LCHF/Keto/Paleo.

She also runs the blog Maria Mind Body Health. Take a look at her blog and get inspired
by all the delicious recipess she posts.

Salmon from The Ketogenic Cookbook

The Ketogenic Cookbook is really heavy, both in size and in the quality of the recipes.

This is an absolutely wonderful cookbook. It’s actually one of the most beautiful cookbooks I have ever seen, and I’ve seen quite a few of them since I started to work as a restaurant chef back in 1984.

It has what I think is the most important thing for a cookbook, delicious looking pictures to all recipes.

The recipes also includes a lot of vegetables. It’s great to see other cookbook authors in this genre, showing that a ketogenic diet isn’t just limited to bacon, eggs and butter.

Jimmy Moore has actually a part in my cookbooks finding their way to the US, they were all released in English this summer.

Just two weeks after I started my Swedish blog, Birgitta Höglund’s Food, 6 years ago, I wrote an email to Jimmy and he published a link to it on his blog.

In the same post I found a link to the very inspiring website Low-Carb Lifestyle, written by Clark and Nina Wagaman, who has been on a LCHF/Keto-lifestyle for over 10 years.

We became blogfriends, and I sent them my cookbooks in Swedish.

Nina, who is a photographer, liked my books and told me I should try to get them published in English.

She sent me the adress to Skyhorse Publishing in New York. I wrote to them and and after a couple of months they decided to publish all my cookbooks 🙂

This spring I joined over 200 Lowcarbers at Jimmy’s Low-Carb Cruise in the Carribbean. Blogging can lead to many interesting meetings.

LCHF Cookbook Release

A great day for me

All my 3 cookbooks are now available in English. It’s so exciting to hear that some of you already have got your books from Amazon, the official releasedate is Aug 4.

I would like to extend my warm thanks to my editor Lindsey Breuer at Skyhorse Publishing who believed in my books and Gun Penhoat who translated the books and adjusted the recipes to fit the American market.

Gun has done a fantastic job of finding substitutes for those Swedish products that can be difficult to find in the US, so that everyone should be able to cook and enjoy my food.

Low Carb High Fat Barbecue was released in June and now it’s time for the other two to hit the market.

Low Carb High Fat Cooking for Healthy Aging was written together with Dr. Annika Dahlqvist, MD. She is the founder of the LCHF movement in Sweden.

Low Carb High Fat and Paleo Slow Cooking has a very interesting foreword about healthy fats, written by science journalist and author Dr. Ann Fernholm, PhD.

Dr. Fernholm’s first book, “My Sweet Heart: The health effects of a century-long love affair” will be available as an e-book in September.

I hope you’ll enjoy my books as much as I enjoyed writing them.

Here’s some words about LCHF Barbecue:

“I met the author on Jimmy Moore’s 2015 Low Carb Cruise. She is dedicated to creating and eating good, healthy food. The book has gorgeous pictures of the prepared recipes and the instructions are easy and concise-this book has been translated into english-all the temperatures and measurements are american too. I highly recommend this book. I have pre-ordered her other two books that are being translated into english.”

“I learned so much from this book. Birgitta Höglund is one of the original founders of LCHF and has dedicated her life to reinvent modern cooking. The barbecue book is not only about putting a piece of meat on the grill. Here we learn to serve whole healthy dinners without any harmful carbs. I have made half of her recipes and all have been a delight to make and eat.”

“Birgitta Höglund; I was afraid to order your book because I figured it had a lot of ingredients we have never heard of here in Southern Louisiana and/or climate differences would make it hard to follow. Then I noticed that all of the recipes posted were easy to follow and duplicate so I took the plunge. I ordered “Low Carb Barbecue” and preordered the other two. My Barbecue book came today and I’m so excited. I skimmed it I know with a wrinkled brow looking for thing negative AND FOUND NONE! You have done a fantastic job. I would never have thought of the zucchini in potato salad and it’s so refreshing I want to try new things. I just wanted you and the whole group to know how great I find this book and how I’m looking forward to the other two arriving. I’m telling everyone I know that it was written by my new Swedish friend. Thank you very much.”

Here about Low Carb High Fat and Paleo Slow Cooking:

“Birgitta is a delightful chef who lives what she shows in her books. These recipes are a new fresh outlook on dishes we have not experienced like this. All ingredients are available or explained by translation to apply ingredients we can easily locate. She has made my ketogenic lifestyle new and exciting again. Thanks Birgitta.”

About Low Carb High Fat Cooking for Healthy Aging:

“Wow! Fantastic recipes and photographs for new food choices for our healthy ketogenic lifestyle. Ingredients listed so anyone can reconstruct these beautiful dishes in our very own kitchens. The articles make you feel like we have sat with her in her own kitchen and cooked together. I love it and can’t wait for my imaginary visits into Swedish Keto homes with Birgitta again.”
