Hi! Found a cookbook that has low carb recipes and is written by an RN who lost over 107 lbs. Can I put some of those recipes here, or the name of the cookbook for others to get?

What is the name of the cookbook? It would be great if you had some favorite recipes to post here. Caci

I wasn't certain if I could put the name of the cookbook here. It's called "Eat Yourself Thin Low Carb Cookbook by Nancy Moshier, RN. from Minnesota. She lost 129 lbs. By going to her web site, I noticed she also has another book on desserts only.

web site is http://www.low-carb-cookbooks.com

She has some sample recipes at this web site:

Thanks for sharing! Yes, it is ok to share names of cookbooks. You can share a few recipes too, as long as you don't share the whole collection. The entire book is copyrighted, but individual recipes are ok to post.

They look good, thanks!

I have tried the Quick Chow Mein, it is really good. My husband even thought it was good, and with just the two of us there were leftovers for another day. Served with a salad and it's a complete meal.
