// Low-carb eating is no longer a fad


Since its publication over 15 years ago, 500 Low-Carb Recipes has become a classic in the low-carb community, earning author Dana Carpender the affectionate moniker “low-carb queen” from her fans. The book is now a bestseller, with over half a million copies sold.

Low-carb cooking has evolved. A decade ago, low-carb menus relied on ingredients like artificial sweeteners, unhealthy vegetable oils, protein additives, and processed foods from grocery store shelves, like low-carb branded snack bars and packaged meals. Today’s low-carb cooking is influenced by larger food movements, such as clean eating; farm-to-table ingredients; higher fat ratios, thanks to the popularity of ketogenic diets; and less stigmatization of foods that have substantial inclusion in a low-carb diet, namely animal foods and saturated fat due to the growth of the Paleo and traditional foods movementsThe New 500 Low-Carb Recipes is the beloved cookbook updated for today's low-carb movement.


If you’ve been getting bored with your low-carb diet, this is the book for you. No longer are you confined to plain chicken breasts with a side of broccoli. You’ll find dozens of exciting ways to vary a hamburger, a steak, pork chops chicken, and fish. You’ll find a wide variety of side dishes and salads and even breads, not to mention muffins, waffles, pancakes, and granola. In short, this book has recipes for all sorts of things you never dreamed of, including:


  • Artichoke Frittata
  • Country Scramble
  • Gingerbread Waffles
  • Asian Ginger Slaw
  • Cajun Chicken Salad
  • Pork Piccata
