Keto Simple is the newest cookbook from author and keto-lifestyle advocate Martina Šlajerová, published by Quarto on their Fair Winds Press imprint and available 7th Jan 2020. It's 176 pages and will be available in paperback format.The main focus of this cookbook is making recipes more streamlined and simple. There aren't very many evenings I come home from work and feel like spending 2 hours+ of my evening cooking complex recipes. Anything that simplifies the process and requires fewer difficult ingredients or very expensive specialty items is a huge bonus for me. This book contains quite a number of recipes which are made with fewer ingredients, less time, and fewer difficult to find items.Each recipe includes an intro with recipe special features such as nut-free, gluten-free, etc. There is an introduction with other info such as portion control and yields followed by bullet list ingredients in sidebars with prep-time estimates. The recipes' ingredients lists are provided with English/American measurements with metric/SI measures in parentheses. Nutritional info is provided in the footer under the recipe instructions.The book is very well illustrated with most pages having full color photographs which support and fill out the text. The content is presented in plain and understandable language blessedly free from mumbo-jumbo. It includes a good layman accessible introduction, how to use a ketogenic diet, and what to expect from a lifestyle change which includes replacing some (or most) dietary carbohydrates with fats as a source of energy. The recipes are arranged roughly thematically: pantry basics, breakfasts, snacks, sides, soups & salads, lunch box, dinners, and desserts. There is a reference/resource guide along with links, and a cross referenced index including single ingredients for looking up related recipes.I really liked that many of the recipes come with built-in alternatives which make it very easy to switch things up and add even more variation to menu planning without a lot of extra effort. Most of my reluctance to adopt a keto diet has been resistance to how difficult and time consuming it seems. This time of year inspires most of us to make lifestyle changes and I intend to try to incorporate some of them in my own family.Four stars.Disclosure: I received an ARC at no cost from the author/publisher for review purposes.

    I’ve reviewed other keto books and after my two months of a keto-inspired diet, I’m still not a fan (but that goes with just anything that requires limitation). While I like to think all food is great in moderation to enjoy life, I can’t negate the positive effects keto has had so far and I will be keeping it up but definitely need to review books that 1) encourage the maintenance and 2) simple interesting recipes. The author has great encouraging words and says to ‘find a way to eat to live’.

Of all the recipes (think of a variety of eggs, fats, meats) I look forward to trying the breakfast skillet Danish, chocolate pancakes, along with all the desserts (can you tell where I’m struggling?!). I’d prefer numbered instructions, but overall I will be trying these recipes for sure.

    Whenever I come across any Keto cookbooks, I have to first of all ensure that the author knows what he or she is talking about. Are the dishes actually safely low-carb? Does he or she actually live a keto lifestyle? Are the ingredients low-carb and easy to obtain? Are the recipes simple and easy to follow? Do the photos make the food look delicious?On all counts above, Martina Slajerova passes with flying colors.

I appreciate that this book still includes many healthy, plant-based recipes - keto should still be nutritious!

    It's so difficult to find tasty food recipes that don't take twenty odd steps and contain ingredients that are hard to find. Keto Simple is straightforward and easy to follow with ingredients that can already be found in the pantries that we have modified to fit our new lifestyles. The introduction is easy to read and gives a great overview of the Keto life. But my favorite part of all is the tips included with the recipes.

(And avocadoes are so expensive, too!)The recipes are well-written and make me want to go to the kitchen and make an early lunch and I have already planned an exciting dinner. I do have one, albeit small, criticism - a diet book should come out in December to be ready for January 1st when we all make resolutions, not seven days in but that is just my opinion.
