Low Carb is LEKKER
Format: PDF / Kindle (mobi) / ePub
Low carb is lekker is the brainchild of Inè Reynierse, who embarked on a mission to make the benefits of a low-carb lifestyle an achievable, budget-friendly reality for her friends and family. Her 'decarbed' versions of South Africa's most popular and well-loved recipes soon caught the attention of various social networks and the growing need for a basic Low carb is lekker recipe collection. There are easy low-carb, wheat-free and sugar-free alternatives to some alltime family favourites (think bobotie, mac 'n cheese and curry and 'rice'), quick comfort foods (gnocchi and chicken pie) as well as decadent treats (malva pudding, chocolate brownies and milk tart spring to mind). Written by a mom for moms who want to feed their loved ones back to health, Low carb is lekker is also a celebration for fellow South Africans who love the tastes of home without compromising health and wellness.
