E-BOOK REVIEW: AWAKEN; 30+ Egg Free and Grain Free Breakfasts

Karen Sorenson, my friend and co-author of the Low Carbing Among Friends cookbook series, has published her own e-book of breakfast recipes. Karen is an engineer by day, a foodie by night, and a budding photographer, which is evident from the lovely photos of her recipes in process and the finished dishes scattered throughout the book. (My favorite is the “Apple” Sauce picture.)


There seems to be something for everyone here, whether you are following a low-carb, Paleo, Primal, gluten-free, grain-free, and/or dairy-free diet, or just looking for some inspiration to get you out of the bacon and eggs rut.

Karen included a section that takes the guess work out of stocking a grain-free pantry. She suggests options and alternatives for many ingredients so the recipes can be customised to fit your individual needs. For example, she takes a common sense approach to one contentious issue by letting her readers use the sweetener of their own choosing; she lists its equivalent in regular granular sugar to make it easy to substitute one for another. (Many people following a Paleo or Primal plan use honey, maple syrup, and other natural sugars, but as Karen wisely points out, if you want to lose weight, these are best avoided.)

Personally, I can’t imagine life without eggs, but for those of you who must avoid them, she shows you how to make an egg substitute using chia seed.

The book comes in a PDF format for viewing on your computer, iPad, or tablet, and a printer-friendly copy of the e-book is also provided.The e-book is on sale for $5.99, which is a 40% discount over the regular price of $9.99.

The working title for my first book was, “You’ll Never Know What You Are Missing.” It summed up my goal: to make eating for health synonymous with eating for pleasure. Once you discover the secret, you will find that the very best food for weight management, longevity, the treatment and prevention of disease, and over-all health and happiness is also the most sumptuous, satisfying, and indulgent way of eating the world has to offer. You are invited to the feast. Enjoy!
