LCHF Cookbook Release

Low Carb High Fat and Paleo Slow CookingSlow Cooking

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.”

Oven Pancake Makes 4 servings

  • 4 large eggs
  • 3/4 cup + 2 tablespoons (200 ml) whole milk
  • 1/3 cup + 1 1/2 tablespoons (100 ml) heavy whipping cream
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 3/4 cup + 2 tablespoons (200 ml) almond meal
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons psyllium seed husk
  • 5 1/4 oz. (150 g) hot-smoked pork belly
  • butter for the pan

Preheat the oven to 435ºF (225ºC). In a bowl, beat together the eggs, milk, cream, and salt. Stir in almond meal and psyllium seed husk, and mix thoroughly. Leave the batter to rise for about 10 minutes.

Dice the pork belly and scatter into a small, buttered baking pan. Set the pan in the oven and cook it until the pork has got some color. Carefully pour the pancake batter over the pork.

Bake on the middle rack of the oven for about 20–25 minutes, until the pancake is golden brown. Serve it with fresh uncooked jam made from lingonberries and sweetener (cranberries work well, too).

Freeze the leftovers, and reheat them in the oven on a day when cooking is not at the top of your to do list.

The recipe is taken from my cookbook Low Carb High Fat Cooking for Healthy Aging.
