Originally published on my blog: Nonstop Reader.

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

Short and sweet at 89 pages, Keto Simple will not take up much room on your cookbook shelf, but it will hold a place in your heart. Delicious recipes that are well balanced and contain lots of veggies and healthy proteins.

Some favorite recipes are pesto egg drop soup, chimichurri steak salad, taco mini meat pies, tandoori beef skillet, reuben hot pockets, blueberry cheesecake jars, and dark chocolate mousse.

Less of a diet book, this is more of a family favorites for breakfast, lunch and

I received an advanced reader copy of this book in exchange for an honest review via netgalley and the publishers.

Warning - mouth watering contents!

This book sounds delicious. Full of simple styled recipies with easy to buy ingredients and encouraging words to go along with these meals. I love it. I cant wait to try some of the recipies in this book and the explanation of keto and what to avoid at the beginning of this book is fantastic!

Ive reviewed other keto books and after my two months of a keto-inspired diet, Im 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 cant 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 ...more

A serious amount of Yum! packed in less than 200 pages. I honestly think you could use this book to meal plan for a whole month and not get bored.

I've been gluten-free (due to actual issues) for 8+ years and intermittent fasting for almost 2. I've been in the health care industry for 20 years and try to stay on top of "healthy" and "clean" eating. So with all that knowledge and "experience" I can honestly say --->Nearly every single page here had a great basis for a ketogenic style meal with

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 have seen her beautiful face on a particularly well known and trusted keto

I have a another book by this author on Keto cookery, so was interested to see what else she could now produce (ie are they different?)

This book has eight chapters which are:
- Introduction
- Breakfasts
- Snacks
- Sides
- Soups & Salads
- Lunch Box
- Dinners
- Desserts

The recipes include both imperial and metric measurements, easy to follow steps and most recipes have a colour photograph to accompany them. It also includes all the nutritional information.

Overall, the book contains new recipe ideas

[I received an electronic review copy of this book in exchange for an honest review. All opinions are my own.]

Includes introductory material on Keto while emphasizing keeping it simple. Includes food lists - things to have on hand and things to avoid. Over 100 recipes - breakfast, lunch, dinner, sides, soups, salads, snacks and desserts. There are some with what I would call "moderately" fussy ingredients or equipment - things I don't generally buy or equipment I don't have like an immersion

Thank you NetGalley for an advanced copy of Keto Simple!

As with all of Martina Slajerova's cookbooks, this one features beautiful photography, easy to follow directions, and delicious sounding recipes! I'm excited to try out several of them, including the chocolate pancakes, cheesy pepperoni twists, and the three different truffle recipes. She includes helpful visuals to know which recipes are dairy free, egg free, nut free, etc and includes recipes for everyone! There is a wide variety for all

Keto is a challenging lifestyle for our family since we have several dietary issues that don't allow for some keto allowances. However, many of the beautiful recipes in this book can easily be modified for such.

I can't wait to try the 3 minute Keto bread and all the desserts! Since we are trying for a healthier lifestyle as a family, let's face it, I need bread and desserts in my life! But even the breakfasts looked especially inventive and delicious (breakfast is always my hang up meal).

A solid ketogentic cookbook!

Books like this are essential in my opinion to any new way of eating, I wish I had this years ago when I started keto! This book is well explained, and covers the basics of what you need to begin and succeed with a ketogenic way of eating.

Easy to understand, simple and yummy recipes for any mood, craving or circumstance!

Thank you so much, Netgalley for the advance copy in exchange for review.

I am always on the hunt for cookbooks featuring healthy, quick and budget-friendly recipes! This is a great book for those interested in a lower carb diet. I appreciate that this book still includes many healthy, plant-based recipes - keto should still be nutritious! I look forward to trying several recipes, including Pesto Egg Drop Soup and Baked Egg Pots.

Thank you, Quarto Publishing Group and NetGalley for a digital ARC!

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.

The keto cookbook is fantastic. It has dozens of interesting recipes that I cant wait to make. The breakfast and salad sections are pure gold. The book seriously has tons of recipes I plan to use often. I received this book from NetGalley for an honest review and I highly recommend it. ...more

A strict Keto diet isn't a diet for me, but some of the recipes are golden, and this book is no exception. Easy to understand, lots of lovely looking recipes, nice pictures... looking forward to trying some!

Thank you NetGalley for an advanced copy of Keto Simple!

This cookbook looks amazing!! I'm an extremely picky eater so going Keto to begin with has been very difficult. There are a lot of recipes in this book that look/sound delicious to me. I'm getting ready to head to the grocery store now and will definitely be adding the ingredients for the Cheesy Pepperoni Twists. I'm a major snacker and have been struggling to find snacks to satisfy me that are keto. These sound like they might just do
