The beginning of the year is often a good idea to start new things, like dieting after bingeing on cookies and chocolate! You have probably heard and read a lot about how bad carbs are for you, but you may dread the transition from these yummy cookies to the keto diet. However, keto doesn’t mean dull recipes. Essential Keto Bread: Sweet and Savory Baked Goods to Satisfy Any Craving could be exactly the book you need.

My hunch would be that like me, you have heard about Ayurveda, but thought this was too involved, to launch into cooking following its principles. That’s exactly why the author decided to write The 30-Minute Ayurvedic Cookbook, to show you can actually prepare simple Ayurvedic meals in 30 minutes or less. Though she does admit that to reach that goal, you may have to use canned food or make large batches of food that will last the whole week.

I think this classification makes it very convenient.
