But for the low-carb dieter, traditional slow cooker recipes can be a problem. Many of them depend on potatoes, noodles, rice, and starchy canned soups. And if you've tried to make up your own slow cooker recipes, you may have found the results less than compelling—too often the food can be mushy, water-logged, and bland.
Fortunately, with 300 Low-Carb Slow Cooker Recipes, you can use your slow cooker and follow your low-carb diet, too! This new, expanded version contains 100 new recipes from Dana's healthy and delicious kitchen.

But that's not all! The gentle, even heat of a slow cooker makes it the perfect way to cook many different kinds of foods. You'll make low-carb party treats like Hot Crab Dip and Glazed Chicken Wings, and snacks like Smokin' Chili Peanuts and Curried Pecans. It's the superior way to cook incredible sugar-free desserts like Mochaccino Cheesecake and Maple-Pumpkin Custard. And you've never had moister, more tender seafood than my Lime-Basted Scallops or Lemon-Mustard Salmon Steaks. Plus, every recipe lists the calories, protein, fiber, and usable carbs per serving, so you'll not only be in control of your life and your time, you'll be in control of your diet as well.
So go ahead, plug in your slow cooker, and look forward to coming home to a fabulous low-carb supper tonight with Dana Carpender's new and expanded 300 Low-Carb Slow Cooker Recipes!
Best-selling author Dana Carpender was startled to discover that limiting her carbohydrate intake not only helped her control her weight, but produced the health and vitality a low-fat diet had promised but never delivered. Fifteen years later, she laughs at people who say "You can't eat that way long-term." Her fourteen cookbooks are the result of her realization that the key to permanent dietary change is the answer to the age-old question, "What's for supper?" To date they have sold over a million copies worldwide. Dana writes about low-carb cooking and nutrition on her Facebook page, Dana Carpender's Hold the Toast Press. Dana lives in Bloomington, Indiana with her husband and a menagerie of pets, all of whom are well and healthily fed.
