Overview

Oftentimes, the so-called diseases of affluence, like diabetes or high blood pressure, are due to improper diet as you age. By eating food with fewer carbohydrates and more fat, you can maintain a normal weight and become free of the symptoms of, for example, fibromyalgia, irritable bowel syndrome (enteritis), chronic fatigue syndrome, and sleep disorders.

Low Carb High Fat Cooking for Seniors contains over 70 easy-to-prepare recipes for those who want hearty and nutritious food that makes you feel as good as possible. Recipes center around healthy, Low Carb High Fat (LCHF) staple ingredients, like butter, cream, crème fraîche, eggs, coconut oil, olive oil or canola oil (cold pressed), nuts and almonds, and cheese, and are suitable as breakfast, snacks, entire meals, or tidbits at teatime. Recipes include:
Almond Waffles
Buckwheat Porridge
Spinach Soup with Bacon
Salmon and Cauliflower Casserole
Lingonberry Ice Cream
Chocolate-Covered Macaroons
An much more!

There were very few recipes...what's up with that?? The index lists some yummy recipes but the book doesn't have them, very disappointed.
