    The Dirty Lazy Keto Cookbook Stephanie Laska William Laska January 7, 2020 Due to the popularity of the Keto diet there are many forms of Keto diet and cookbooks on the market. As we are on the diet, I have read a few and looked through the recipes provided. The Laska’s book is a new look at being Keto. It gives those on the diet who don’t adhere to the heavy duty rules a chance to lose weight without following the intense counting and purchasing of expensive additives that Keto originally came out The Dirty Lazy Keto Cookbook Stephanie Laska William Laska January 7, 2020 Due to the popularity of the Keto diet there are many forms of Keto diet and cookbooks on the market. As we are on the diet, I have read a few and looked through the recipes provided. The Laska’s book is a new look at being Keto. It gives those on the diet who don’t adhere to the heavy duty rules a chance to lose weight without following the intense counting and purchasing of expensive additives that Keto originally came out with. It is not to say that those of us who are ‘Dirty Keto’ dieters don’t count our carbs and cut out sugar. We do. Many folks cannot afford the expensive sugar replacements preferred by many proponents of the diet. A large bag of stevia to use for baking and cooking works as well as the expensive brand. Her method of losing weight works. It is Keto, just revising it so the diet can be worked in with family meals. In our house we are both on Keto so we don’t have to plan for others eating non-Keto foods. When shopping I do just like Stephanie recommends. That is, to check the grid that lists the contents of the food on the box or package. Yes, we need to trust the label but it also means we need to understand how to read the label correctly to know the net carb count. She gives the reader hints on what to look for at the grocery, where to shop, and what to avoid. The recipes are familiar as I have used some. There were some that I plan to try, things that I had not thought of. Most of us who crave comfort food check the internet for a Keto equivalent and how to change the recipe from what we are used to. The authors have done the work for many food choices. They provide the recipe and if necessary suggest where to find the item. Easy directions are given and in most cases a photo is provided. In the beginning a fairly complete list of Keto food categories is given. It would be worth making a copy to take shopping if you are new to the diet. I like having a convenient list to check as I am cooking and am not sure. I do have Google available in my kitchen and at times ask for carb values of a food before using it. You may wonder if we have lost weight? It has been six months and we have both have lost a substantial amount. Yes we will continue using the diet as it is healthy, nutritious and easy to plan meals. The Dirty, Lazy Keto Cookbook by Stephanie and Bill Laska will be published by Adams Media on January 7, 2020. It is a good resource for new recipes as well as ways to plan meals without spending a fortune and yet sticking to the diet.

    My doctor told me I need to go low carb and high protein for my epilepsy. Keto was originally designed as a treatment for epilepsy and my neurologist recommended a low carb, high protein, moderate keto lifestyle to see if that combined with medication would help my seizures in both frequency and severity. I've been researching and downloading every book available to find recipes that would fit my family's tastes and I've found a lot of recipes, but I've always been afraid of the cravings and the My doctor told me I need to go low carb and high protein for my epilepsy. Keto was originally designed as a treatment for epilepsy and my neurologist recommended a low carb, high protein, moderate keto lifestyle to see if that combined with medication would help my seizures in both frequency and severity. I've been researching and downloading every book available to find recipes that would fit my family's tastes and I've found a lot of recipes, but I've always been afraid of the cravings and the strict rules. Then I discovered Lazy Keto. As long as it fits in my macros I can eat it. I can have chocolate. I can have most vegetables (most strict keto diets have a long list of vegetables that you can't eat. I love my veggies.) I can have breadsticks and pizza! Stephanie Laska credits her 140 pound weight loss to lazy keto because of the same reasons. Strict keto is too restricting and daunting for some people. The macros, the ketosis strips, the standing in the aisle monitoring every ingredient. The expense. And because most foods require making from spice mixes on, what if you aren't big on cooking or don't have time to make a recipe that takes an hour and a half or more plus prep every night? Lazy keto has given me hope that I can be successful, and Stephanie's "if I can, you can" point of view and her tips for "shortcuts" alleviate some of my fears about giving up halfway through the year. I will admit, the titles of the recipes were cheesy, and I'm not sure I'll ever believe radishes can be a substitute for potatoes in hash browns. But, there were many recipes for real food that my family will eat happily. It wasn’t 50 recipes for fat bombs and a few main dishes that involve 20 ingredients and a half a day. This will be a cookbook that will be kept closely on hand during meal planning days.

    Fairly new to the world of Keto, I was interested in reviewing this book simply because of the title -- and I wasn't disappointed. Ms. Laska's description of her weight-loss journey that brought her to trying keto is completely relate-able; as is her views on keto. It's something I don't enjoy at all due to restrictions, but I can't deny its positive effects so far.

    I'm so glad I decided to give this one a try because this is now my favorite cookbook! Stephanie's story is such an inspiration, but the best part is her funny, quirky, and realistic attitude towards dieting, eating, and so on. We are by no means avid Keto dieters, however, I love digging through Keto recipes to make because my husband is Diabetic. Whenever I can find low carb recipes that are filling and yummy, I get so excited. When he doesn't know they are low carb - even better!

We are by no means avid Keto dieters, however, I love digging through Keto recipes to make because my husband is Diabetic. Whenever I can find low carb recipes that are filling and yummy, I get so excited. When he doesn't know they are low carb - even better! The layout of this book is simple and logical with recipes divided into breakfast, snacks, salads/soups, and so on. Budget-friendly shoppers will appreciate the simple ingredients that won't cost a fortune, in addition to the fact that things can be substituted here and there using a little common sense and creativity. Honestly, there are hot dogs on the approved list. This is something that's on sale all of the time, filling, and you can do anything from boiling them to grilling them and they are tasty. I'm not a fan of radishes so I will be skipping all of the recipes including radishes, but the point is, there is a little bit of something for everyone in this book! I just downloaded this the other day and have already made the Starbucks Egg Bites (which were amazing), the Hangover Bacon-Wrapped Pickles (also amazing), and the Drunken Pot Roast (which was very tasty, but my hubby was missing carrots and potatoes, nevertheless). The next recipe I am trying is the McDonald's Cheeseburger soup and I can't wait! I highly recommend this one for people that are wanting to be carb conscious eaters without having to completely change their lives. This is simple, realistic, and doable. *Thanks to NetGalley for providing this ARC in exchange for my honest review!

    The DIRTY, LAZY, KETO Cookbook by Stephanie and William Laska was a gem to dive into. I found the author's style to be fun, open and similar to chatting with a friend about real life nutrition. She talks about the path she took and invites readers to explore and find a path that works for them.

I found the author's style to be fun, open and similar to chatting with a friend about real life nutrition. She talks about the path she took and invites readers to explore and find a path that works for them. She is a relief to read in the day of Keto Police reprimanding each and every thing that doesn't fall into strict keto guidelines. Lets face it, there are many people who have lost incredible amounts of weight by altering keto to fit their lifestyle. A judgement and guilt free zone is what we are all looking for to investigate what works AND what doesn't for our chemistry. The beginning of this book is super helpful on the basics of a keto way of eating, useful for both the beginner and the knowledgeable. There are pages of grocery lists included complete with net carb counts. The selection of recopies is amazing. The author also states that if you don't like one, skip over it. Don't like an ingredient? Swap it out with another and make it your own. She doesn't require ingredients that are hard to find or out of most household budgets (i.e.: Dolla Store Pumpkin Soup). The recipes range from the simple (Olive Garden Salad) to the gourmet (Basil Coconut Curry Shrimp). I have read many Keto cookbooks and this one is by far the most useful for me. I will be revisiting it time and time again. Many thanks to Netgalley and Adams Media for the opportunity to read this advanced copy in exchange for an honest review. Of note, I have never given another keto cookbook a 5 star rating!

    3.5 stars, more like. I was hoping to be inspired by this cookbook (any cookbook I pick up), but this one is just meh for me. I'm all in support of a version of keto that's more loose guidelines than strict macro-counting, and the focus here is clearly on less carbs, not necessarily high fat. There were a dozen recipes I'm going to try, and hopefully they turn out great. I wish each had an accompanying photo, because that always helps me understand what to expect, but alas.

I liked the Tips & Tricks she included, but was a little lost on her lack of specification about no-carb sweeteners in recipes (they vary wildly in sweetness and texture, and I don't know if her vagueness means any can be used, wet or dry, but then she also refers to them as packets, so maybe she only means Splenda or Monkfruit? I'm a bit confused, and clearly it's going to be trial and error. Nothing here was too earth-shattering, but on the flipside, it was nice to hear that most of the recipes can be made it under an hour.

    The Dirty, Lazy, Keto Cookbook: Bend the Rules to Lose the Weight, is my third Stephanie Laska, MEd, book, and I love it as much as I loved the other two.

She is real, relevant, a The Dirty, Lazy, Keto Cookbook: Bend the Rules to Lose the Weight, is my third Stephanie Laska, MEd, book, and I love it as much as I loved the other two. I’d actually started backward in that I found the Dirty, Lazy, Keto Fast Food Guide: 10 Carbs or Less, first. It is was what prompted me to seek out and buy Dirty, Lazy, Keto: Getting Started: How I Lost 140 Pounds. The Cookbook rocks as hard as the other two. The common denominator of them all – Stephanie Laska, MEd. She is real, relevant, and reaching from the first word of her first book to the last word of her latest. It’s impossible not to trust someone who’s character does not falter. Stephanie provides recipes that follow her tried and true weight loss regime, based on the ketogenic diet principles. Her recipes use ingredients that most of us have in our homes already, or are easily attainable and affordable. They are the ingredients she has used to achieve success. She also acknowledges that for a plan to work, it must be tweaked to each person’s own preferences. She clearly states that what works for one does not work for all, and the most important thing is to take her suggestions and make them our own, so it can work for us too. Laska’s sage and practical advice, “Work with your habits, not against them… don’t try to change who you are. DO WHAT WORKS FOR YOU.” The Dirty, Lazy, Keto Cookbook has all the key components of a cookbook that’s purpose is to effectively join hands with a healthier lifestyle. The introductory commentary is quick and to the point, full of Stephanie’s wisdom as well as her wonderfully sharp wit. (I don’t think I stopped giggling throughout.) It provides nutritional information, how to calculate, and explains why that data is important. It lists foods to avoid as well as providing alternatives to substitute while making the transition, and weekly grocery lists. The recipes are also coded, categorizing them in various groups from budget-friendly to fancy-enough-for-guests. From “KFC” Keto Fried Chicken to Lemon and Dill Salmon Kabobs; Summer Tuna Avocado Salad to Dragon Tail Jalapeno Poppahs; not to mention Debauchery Chocolate Brownies – there is something for everyone in this cookbook. Stephanie doesn’t leave anyone’s taste buds out. This book does not cast judgment on anyone for the routes they choose to take on their healthier lifestyle journey. “Dirty” does not equate to unhealthy. “Dirty” is in contrast to “clean,” meaning not always all-natural with no additives. “Lazy” does not signify a lack of ambition. It is referring to not detailing every micro, macro, minuscule molecule of every bite. These terms simply indicate it is not the pure, regimented program that strict ketogenic dieters tend to follow. Laska is in no way, shape, or form insinuating that the folks who like the other way are wrong. She believes that there is something that will work for everyone if they work it. As she wisely states, “What’s more dangerous to my health – enduring complications of morbid obesity or drinking Splenda-sweetened coffee?” Stephanie not only includes her expertise from experience, her sparkalicious sense of humor, but also a number of ways to personally connect and plug in to support groups to guide you along your journey. The Dirty, Lazy, Keto Cookbook isn’t just another cookbook, my friends. This is a viable and practical option for a new lease on life.

    Incredibly impressed with this cookbook. I have been low carb/keto for about a month and was getting bored with chicken breast and turkey patties. Extremely clear net carb count at the start of every recipe. The author has a family, so the recipes are pretty straightforward and simple with readily available ingredients. My Fiance is NOT low carb and he has been eating these recipes and really enjoys them as well (plus it's easy to add carbs for the non-Keto peeps in the house).

My Fiance is NOT low carb and he has been eating these recipes and really enjoys them as well (plus it's easy to add carbs for the non-Keto peeps in the house). Here are some recipes we tried: *Stuffed Chicken for Suppah: DELICIOUS. Tasted really decadent and was pretty easy to assemble. We had the increase the cooking time because our chicken breasts were pretty thick. 5/5 *Raddish Potatoes: These straight-up taste like potatoes. Keep in mind they cook down a lot- we doubled the recipe. 5/5 *Drop the Chopsticks Bowl: Another amazing dish. Chinese is something I was missing and this really evokes the right flavors and textures. I added some cauliflower rice and stir-fried it (added soy sauce and an egg). 5/5 *Turkey Taco Boats: Another hit in the household- we subbed low carb tortillas. 5/5 *Topless Burgers: I really enjoyed this but my mom felt as though it was too rich (the portabella was similar to a second patty) So this would be great if you find yourself hungry. We also omitted the shredded apple. 3/5

Some recipes stood out to me more than others. To be honest, I thought there was a surprising lack of pictures of the dishes, which really help me visualize if I can pull off what the meal is supposed to become. I feel like if there was less personal story and more food discussion, that would really be helpful for people like me who are trying to cook things for the first time. Also, I found the recipe names to be a little annoying after a while. I get the point, but I don’t think it’s funny. It would be more helpful if they were descriptive rather than themed along the cheap / no money theme, which just doesn’t come across to me as something the reader would want to constantly be reminded of. It’s no shame in needing affordable meals — that is the sole appeal of this book: healthy and accessible. You don’t need $50 utensils and expensive cuts. But constantly being like OK, you want some CHEAPSKATE CHEDDAR CHICKEN BITES, ya poor broke thing, you?! is really.... just annoying.

    I found this book made it really easy to understand Keto unlike all of the reading I had been doing online. The information is clear, concise, and easy to imagine that it would be doable. Much easier to connect to with the author's story throughout. I haven't tried any of the recipes yet but there are many that I'm anxious to try like Hangover bacon wrapped pickles, Starbuck's egg bites, McDonald's cheeseburger soup and broccoli cheese soup.

    Pros: The recipes are budget-friendly and simple. Cons: The recipes were so-so. The nutrition advice is problematic. The author derides people she calls the "keto police" then gives bad advice about artificial sweeteners and more.

    I LOVE this cookbook and have made so many recipes from this cookbook. I love the way Stephanie Laska talks when she refers to about things like the “Keto Police”. Her Purple Eggplant Lasagna is wonderful as is the Broc Omama Cheese Soup - except I used cauliflower because I had that on hand. The Little Italy Baked Lasagna was exceptional. I look forward to making more recipes from this incredibly fun book!

    I was very excited to get this give away because my husband does the keto diet and I was hoping this would be a good book to figure out more things for me to make for him. I generally make the same meals for him over and over. Reading through this I have so many more ideas. There are some things in this book however, that I would have to go to a specialty store to purchase for some of the recipes. Most recipes look very do-able and delicious! He is excited to see what I use from this book.

    Pretty good. There are some interesting recipes in it, and I've made a few. I like her view of eating mostly low-carb vegetables with some fat and protein and not having to stick with strict Keto rules. You could probably get most of these recipes or similar versions online, but I enjoyed her irreverent writing because Keto people sometimes are way too serious.

    Too much cauliflower and zucchini imo. In nearly every recipe. Would have appreciated a bit more insight into the author's weight loss journey and how she eats day to day with these recipes. I did like the tips with each recipe for changing them up.

    I received this book from Goodreads for review and all thoughts and opinions are my own. Author is candid and really funny. Dieting isn't at all enjoyable. She covers the basics of keto, information and insights from personal experience. The recipes that follow give a full spectrum of meal planning with ingredients that are easy to find and relatively inexpensive.

    When a super-speed reader doesn't have a car for a month due to a predatory car insurance industry, you can get a LOT of reading done!! I received a temporary digital Advance Reader Copy of this book from #NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. From the publisher, as I do not repeat the contents or story of books in reviews, I let them do it as they do it better than I do 😸. After losing 140 pounds, bestselling author Stephanie Laska shares her unconventional weight loss secret When a super-speed reader doesn't have a car for a month due to a predatory car insurance industry, you can get a LOT of reading done!! I received a temporary digital Advance Reader Copy of this book from #NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. From the publisher, as I do not repeat the contents or story of books in reviews, I let them do it as they do it better than I do 😸. After losing 140 pounds, bestselling author Stephanie Laska shares her unconventional weight loss secrets and 100 easy, accessible recipes so you too can experience the fun behind the keto lifestyle with lots of humour and zero judgements. You don’t have to be perfect to be successful at weight loss—now you can bend the rules and still lose the weight. If your version of the keto diet includes a Diet Coke, low-carb beer, or the occasional chocolate-covered protein bar, The DIRTY, LAZY, KETO Cookbook is your roadmap for results. Bestselling author Stephanie Laska explains her flexible, honest, and real-world approach to losing weight with the keto diet and inspires you to cook your way to weight loss, maintenance, and beyond whether you’re a beginner or experienced keto veteran. Including 100 recipes that are under 10 net carbs per serving, The DIRTY, LAZY, KETO Cookbook presents affordable, traditional, and most importantly recognizable recipes to guide you on your weight loss journey. All of the ingredients can be found at discount grocery stores—nothing fancy here! Within these relatable and unique recipes, there are meals for picky eaters, fancier meals for guests, and some that are vegetarian “ish” (they don’t contain meat, but may contain dairy or eggs). And with simple, stress-free instructions that require no cooking experience, there’s no excuse not to cook. The DIRTY, LAZY, KETO Cookbook empowers you to keto your own way. The recipes in this judgement-free cookbook support you on your unique path to realistic and sustainable weight loss, not perfection. I LOVE THIS BOOK...I went and bought "Dirty, Lazy Keto" (this is the COOKBOOK specific sequel) and read it concurrently to this one and plan on reading her "Fast Food Guide" (Fast as in not owning an InstantPot per its very long title of "DIRTY, LAZY, KETO Fast Food Guide: 10 Carbs or Less: Ketogenic Diet, Low Carb Choices for Beginners - Wanting Weight Loss Without Owning An Instant Pot or Keto Cookbook!." WHAT A LONG TITLE FOR A "FAST FOOD" Book, LOL!) I love her sense of humour and approach ... she is not a "food fascist" which I appreciate as I am horrible at really strict diets and the recipes are yummy looking/sounding and well written. If you are a dieter who wants to try Keto but you are scared off because of the strict rules in many other books this is the perfect book to read. Ten pounds a month is a safe way to take off the extra weight you may want to lose - any quicker and it may not stay off. This is a feasible, sane way to take the weight off with Keto or to be nice to your PCOS this is the book for you. New to Keto? This is the book for you! Bored with Keto? This is the book for you. (Are you sensing a theme???) As always, I try to find a reason to not rate with stars as I love emojis (outside of their incessant use by "Social Influencer Millennials" on Instagram and Twitter) so let's give it 🥓🥓🥓🥓🥓

    Another Keto recipe book to review today, it's just gone 10 in the morning here and I'm already looking forward to dinner! The Dirty, Lazy, Keto cookbook is for those dieters who are open to artificial sweeteners and some packaged food as part of the diet and count the carbs they eat per day rather than the whole macro nutrients. With the contents there are picture keys next to each recipe, however the explanation of those keys is not explained until page 15, far too far into the book. This shoul Another Keto recipe book to review today, it's just gone 10 in the morning here and I'm already looking forward to dinner! The Dirty, Lazy, Keto cookbook is for those dieters who are open to artificial sweeteners and some packaged food as part of the diet and count the carbs they eat per day rather than the whole macro nutrients. With the contents there are picture keys next to each recipe, however the explanation of those keys is not explained until page 15, far too far into the book. This should be first in my opinion. The introduction is interesting about her journey to weight loss, but also feels like an online blog post. In fact, all the chapter introductions feel like blog posts, especially when a chunk of the text is highlighted. In the first two chapters there is a Keto food pyramid for how to spend your daily net carbs, along with an explanation on how to calculate the net carbs from a food label. There is a grocery list and includes the net carbs and is split into diary, protein, produce (fruit & veg), drinks, baking, sauces & spices, cans & jars and miscellaneous alongside a list of foods that are good to get your started such as Zoodles (courgetti) and cauliflower rice and sugar substitutes. Also included is a list of foods to avoid as they are high in carbs, There is also a list of equipment that might be needed, from containers to cooking items. The recipes are split into: - Breakfast - Soups and Salads - Snacks - Breads, pasta and pizza - Sides - Main dishes - Drinks and Desserts The recipes comes with a small introduction, a list of ingredients though the measurements and oven temperatures are in imperial only, steps to follow, shows the net carbs, other nutritional information, servings size and preparation and cooking times. Some of the recipes come with a colour photograph. The recipes look interesting to make for the whole family and there are certainly a few there that I would like to try, especially some of the pizza bases as they look like an interesting alternative to the traditional dough. At the back of the book there is a glossary and a metric conversion chart for measurements, pan sizes and oven temperatures, though no Gas Mark. I received this book from Netgalley in return for a honest review.
