The Dirty, Lazy, Keto Dirt Cheap Cookbook Review

The DIRTY, LAZY, KETO Dirt Cheap Cookbook is very easy to follow whether you are new to Keto or have been eating Keto for awhile.

I’ve been eating Keto for a few months and already find myself in a rut with “Keto” meals, especially with a family to cook for who eat a standard diet.  This cookbook offers many fun new recipes to try without spending a ton of money.

In fact, most of the recipes are great everyday recipes for the whole family. Most can be made using ingredients you likely already have on hand.

It’s a flexible, practical and easy approach to the Keto diet which I think makes it a lot more approachable and easy to maintain long term.

The cookbook starts off with a lengthy and thorough introduction that covers the basics of the keto diet, including the basics of ketosis, macronutrients, tips, ingredients, tools, supplies, how-to, pantry lists and shopping tips.
 
Chapter are arranged into breakfast, soups & salads, snacks, pizza, side dishes, main dishes, and desserts & drinks. The table of contents lists each recipe along with symbols denoting special attributes of the recipe. (Makes leftovers, for when you are hangry, for picky eaters, etc..)
 
The prep costs, net carbs, serving information, as well as helpful tips are included with each recipe in a neat little sidebar.
 
Overall, I really enjoyed The DIRTY, LAZY, KETO Dirt Cheap Cookbook and the authors encouraging tone. Definitely recommend for anyone looking into the Keto diet or looking to change things up. Check out the lasagna recipe below for an example of the type of recipe you will find inside.
 
 

 

 

 

Lunch Line Lasagna Recipe

One of my unique talents is my inability to give up. Don’t laugh, but for years I felt frustrated about my vegetable lasagna recipe. How could I make a healthy lasagna that wasn’t so dang watery?

I’ve been known to use parsley leaves to spell out the letters “D L K” on the top of the lasagna like some kind of birthday cake. Let’s celebrate. You’re eating lasagna and losing weight for cryin’ out loud!
