200 Low-Carb Slow Cooker Recipes: Healthy Dinners That Are Ready When You Are!
Ah, the wonders of a slow cooker. After a long, hard day you can walk in the door and the aroma of a hot, home-cooked meal fills the air. You don’t have to do that fast tango from fridge to pantry to stove and back again. It’s nearly as good as having a personal chef! But for the low-carb dieter, traditional slow cooker recipes can be a problem. Many of them depend on potatoes, noodles, rice, and starchy canned soups. And if you’ve tried to make up your own slow cooker recipes, you may have found the results less than compelling — too often the food can be mushy, water-logged, and bland.
Fortunately, with 200 Low-Carb Slow Cooker Recipes, you can use your slow cooker and follow your low-carb diet, too!
Come home to:
Tuscan Chicken * Kashmiri Lamb Shanks * Teriyaki-Tangerine Ribs * Chicken Minestrone * Orange Rosemary Pork * Chipotle Brisket * Firehouse Chili * Thai Chicken Bowls * Braised Pork with Fennel * Pizza Stew * Morty’s Mixed Meat Loaf * Low-Carb Slow Cooker Paella
But that’s not all! The gentle, even heat of a slow cooker makes it the perfect way to cook many different kinds of foods. You’ll make low-carb party treats like Hot Crab Dip and Glazed Chicken Wings, and snacks like Smokin’ Chili Peanuts and Curried Pecans. It’s the superior way to cook incredible sugar-free desserts like Mochaccino Cheesecake and Maple-Pumpkin Custard. And you’ve never had moister, more tender seafood than my Lime-Basted Scallops or Lemon-Mustard Salmon Steaks. Plus, every recipe lists the calories, protein, fiber, and usable carbs per serving, so you’ll not only be in control of your life and your time, you’ll be in control of your diet as well.
So go ahead, plug in your slow cooker, and look forward to coming home to a fabulous low-carb supper tonight!
21 Pounds in 21 Days: The Martha’s Vineyard Diet Detox
Detox diets are making news as the quickest, easiest way to shed pounds, boost your energy, and get yourself on a wellness track. Popular in the 1970s, cleansing fasts are again all the rage among celebrities like Gisele Bundchen, Gwyneth Paltrow, Stella McCartney, and Madonna.
One of the key advocates of the health benefits of cleansing detoxes is Roni DeLuz, ND, a licensed naturopathic and health practitioner at Martha’s Vineyard Holistic Retreat, part of the renowned Martha’s Vineyard Inn. The idea behind DeLuz’s new detox plan is the belief that the foods we eat (along with the coffee, tea, and alcohol we drink and the air we breathe) contain harmful and toxic substances that accumulate in our bodies and need to be removed in some way. In 21 Pounds in 21 Days, DeLuz offers three different detox programs, including the original and most effective 21-day “MasterFast,” which promises a 21-pound weight loss in just three weeks and focuses on detoxification through antioxidants, fasting, stress reduction, and lifestyle changes. Also included in the book are:
- Maintenance plans
- Dozens of easy, delicious recipes
- Real-life tips
- An extensive glossary of terms
- A guide to supplements
Meals consist of supplement-laden drinks, herbal teas, thick, delicious vegetable purees, and “live” juices, along with nutritional supplements, vitamins, and enzymes designed to keep the body’s systems stable and its cells nourished while harmful toxins are flushed out. 21 Pounds in 21 Days isn’t just for those looking to lose weight; everyone can benefit from this revolutionary detox diet that results in a clean, refreshed system that functions at its best.
Body for Life: 12 Weeks to Mental and Physical Strength
Bill Phillips had been publishing bodybuilding magazines and marketing nutritional supplements for years when he had a weird revelation at a trade show: many of the most loyal and enthusiastic readers he had were totally out of shape. From that uncomfortable realization came his popular Physique Transformation Contest (top prize that first year: Phillips’s own Lamborghini), now world famous, and this book.
The three-times-a-week weightlifting program in Body for Life is deceptively simple. If you’ve spent any time in the gym, you’ve already done all the exercises. But Phillips includes a couple of high-intensity sets at the end of each exercise that should compound the training effect on each muscle group. Same goes for the cardiovascular exercise he recommends: just 20 minutes, three times a week. But those 20 minutes are spent jacking the intensity up and down, accomplishing more in less time.
Phillips arranges all this into a 12-week program, along with nutritional and motivational tips. Be warned that the nutritional advice gets a little spacey. For example, he puts “carbohydrates” and “vegetables” into separate categories, and recommends three daily doses of a nutritional supplement called Myoplex, which his company manufactures. (Fortunately, he gives tips on how to make each dose taste different, such as by adding drops of peppermint extract.) Despite this strangeness, Body for Life still motivates because so many others have achieved astounding results in similar 12-week windows, and the pictures and testimonials are here as evidence.
