The Quick and Easy Ketogenic Cooking Cookbook

By February 22, 2016February 9th, 2017Uncategorized

The Quick and Easy Ketogenic Cooking Cookbook

It is finally here!  The Quick and Easy Ketogenic Cooking Cookbook.

I put so much work into this book and to finally have it in my hands feels unreal. If you want one cookbook that is everything keto, this is it!

If you feel overwhelmed with work, life, family, responsibilities and cooking sounds like another job, I wanted to write a letter to you to help you understand that I am a busy working parent just like many of you. There was a time before kids that I didn’t understand the difficulty of finding time to prepare keto meals and when a client would complain that they do not have time to eat healthy, I would think… “it is easy… I do it daily.” I worked all the time and still was able to find time to put a keto meal together. But I can’t judge, cooking isn’t for everyone. I love cooking. There is nothing I adore more than a rainy day cooking in the kitchen with the radio on. I say rainy day because on beautiful sunny days I prefer to be on my kayak or bicycle! I understand we all have different passions and cooking isn’t for everyone, but that is why this cookbook rules! Even the novice cook can make these recipes and if you prefer to be outside like I do, you will love the bonus chapter where you can smoke foods outside!

On November 16th 2010 life threw me for a loop. We received an email that we could pick up our 2 baby boys from Ethiopia. On November 19 we were on the plane and life was never the same. We arrived home in the US the night before Thanksgiving. Let’s just say Thanksgiving was anything but turkey and gravy.

It was the most magnificent yet the most difficult time in my life. I now was responsible for a one year old and a toddler who was scared of everything new and everything was new. I remember them crying the first time they took a bath, scared of the bathtub… think about it. Why is this lady putting me in a huge hole and filling it with water?  They didn’t have a bathtub at the orphanage.

Everything was a new experience to them. Which is why I held Kai in a baby carrier at all times while holding Micah’s hand. Try cooking with one hand. Yep, that’s what I did. But it was important. They never had such a sense of security before and I needed to make up for years of them not having anyone.

I’m not complaining, I would give anything to hold baby Kai in a baby carrier again. But I do want you to know it was an eye opening experience to realize how hard it is to make healthy meals while prioritizing family. But it can be done.  Even with all these challenges, cooking one handed with another strapped to my belly, we did it. Which leads me to why I love this book. Many of the recipes can be made with one hand.

If you would like to win a copy before you can buy it all you have to do is leave a comment on how the ketogenic lifestyle has helped you or a loved one.

Winner will be chosen Feb. 28th. Good luck!

The WINNER of the book is: Gregg D. Winston! Congrats!

  • Monique Foster says:

    Wow this book looks amazing! I know life is crazy and more than anything i try make the time to cook the keto way for my family, so this is really going to help. Thank you so much for all your hard work to make life easier for us 🙂
    And thank you for sharing your story, i wish you and your now extended family all the best, coming from Africa myself, you have given those little munchkins the greatest gift, America is such a wonderful place to live.

  • Cathy K says:

    Dear Maria, I’ve been purchasing your books through Nook and doing Keto since the end of July. In that time, I have not been scrupulous about gram counting, but eat in my safe zone of foods. I’ve lost 30 scale lbs and gone down from a 22 to a very comfortable 18 without trying! For me, the more exciting thing is that with a couple of exceptions, I’ve halved the doses of my medications! And my rough skin patches are much softer and smoother. I sleep better, have clearer thinking, and no cravings for food. I do sometimes want something that is not good for me, but I decide I don’t want to feel the way I used to feel and walk away. Thank you so much for making this clear in your books. I would LOVE to have a hard copy of your new cook book so I can touch it, and show people what I’m talking about when I share your wonderful program.

  • jmckean says:

    Dear Maria the keto diet has helped me get thru lymes disease.

  • Mary says:

    Congratulations! So very exciting!!

  • Bianca Lacireno says:

    I would love to be able to win/ own your book. This has changed my lifestyle by almost curing my IBS and making my mind clearer. I am loving it 2 months in. Please pick me as I am dedicated and very proud to have found something to make me feel new again. Much love 🙏🏼

  • Sharnee says:

    I’m fairly new to the ketogenic lifestyle, and my full inspiration has been your books. I am so grateful to have found you and love your recipes. I have lost 7 pounds and feel so much more energy than I’ve had in a long time. This book looks beautiful!!

  • Meredith says:

    I haven’t done keto for very long (one month in), but it just feels right. I don’t have physical or psychological remorse following a keto meal like I did after a high carb meal. It is hard for me to be creative in the kitchen so I rely heavily on cookbooks.

  • Robin says:

    I’ve been hard core paleo for a few years now. I stumbled upon your first book and must say was delighted by the number of recipes that included substitutions for cheese (I’m severely lactose intolerant) yet they were still delicious so I didn’t feel like I was “missing out”. Your book has made this way of life SO much easier. I’m counting the days till the release of the new one! Thank you, Maria!

  • Diane says:

    This looks like a great addition – and quick and easy has my name written all over it. The ketogenic lifestyle gives me energy, keeps me full and satisfied without feeling deprived… I used to get headaches many times through the week but with keto, I never get headaches. My moods are more stable and generally happier and much more energetic (worth repeating!). I don’t need afternoon coffee just to make it through my day. It also helped me lose weight and lose belly fat, flattening out the roundness.

  • Marnie Imhoff says:

    The keto lifestyle has allowed me to take control of my health. I’ve been able to stop the cycle of continuous self-sabotage by understanding my cravings. Thank you for the inspiration and resources you give all of us.

  • Kim Jonas says:

    I am also a working mom but of two beautiful, busy girls. I love to cook and spend most weekends cooking when not at basketball or soccer games. However, 13 years ago life threw us a curve ball when my youngest was diagnosed with Celiac Disease. Although living a gluten free life now it’s pretty easy, back then it was much more difficult. Six years ago both my oldest daughter and I were diagnosed with it. Although I loved to cook and would cook gluten free meals, I found myself feeling sorry for them and would compensate by making sugary treats.

    I made the switch to Keto about a year ago. What I love about Keto is that almost everything is gluten free. Although my kids are not completely keto, because of the way I have adapted my cooking they are eating so much healthier and are enjoying the food! I have cut their sugar intake by 75% and the beauty is they have hardly noticed!

    Thank you for showing me the “Maria way!” I have all of your cookbooks! My favorite is your slow cooker cook book! The chili is our family favorite! I would love to be the proud owner of your new cook book! Thanks for the opportunity to win!

  • Cindy says:

    Can’t wait to see the new book! I’ve been following a keto diet for the last year and in that time I’ve seen a drastic decrease in my joint inflammation due to rheumatoid arthritis. Not only that but my blood tests went from showing increased inflammation to normal. My doctor is pretty surprised at how well I am managing my disease through diet and the lowest level of medicine after years of much stronger medications like biologic injections and methotrexate.

  • Irene says:

    OMG can’t wait to get my hands on that book! I’ve already pre-ordered it, but the sooner I can lay my hands on it, the better.

  • mel says:

    I just received all of your books in the mail today. Hard copies so I can sit at starbucks drinking a green tea and reading. I also have your e books which is very handy to look things up. I just started with you Maria but have been eating low carb since the end of December. I really do feel amazing. The last 2 mornings have been awesome. I feel full of joy!!! You are right…it’s not all about weight loss. Can we get this book with e books?

  • Pam says:

    I have been following the keto diet for about a year now and have been feeling great! I just got your Ketogenic Cookbook and I am loving it!! We have been enjoying the Ranch Dressing recipe. No more store bought for me. Looking forward to your new cookbook. Thank you for all the yummy recipes. And, all the information you share with us.

  • Gregg Winston says:


    On February 4th, 2010, my 49th birthday, I called a cab and asked to be taken to the nearest hospital emergency room. I was having chest pain and severe shortness of breath. At the time I weighed about 240 lbs., was severely deconditioned, and am sure I was suffering from metabolic syndrome. I was admitted that night, and underwent triple cardiac bypass surgery 3 days later. Over the following months, while strictly following my cardiologist’s recommendations to eat a low-fat diet, I put on another 260 lbs. (an all-time high weight for my 5’11” frame). At that time, my wife discovered the truth about grains, carbs, and fats, and shortly thereafter your site. Thankfully, over the ensuing years, I have released 70 pounds, and stabilized at about 190 lbs. (+/- 5 lbs.) for almost two years. Your books and website have been an important part of our learning to live the keto-adapted lifestyle, and we are both feeling healthier than we have for many years. We are both grateful for your work. Best of luck with the new book.

    Hey Maria!

    This cookbook would be an amazing thing to win! I recently started a new job and now time is tight which means less time to make healthy dinners. I’m also doing quite a bit of traveling which makes it even harder to stay on the healthy track! Having go to quick Keto meals would be a time and life saver!

  • Anna-Maria says:

    I have the book and it so well done…all the recipes look so good!!! I made the Tiramisu Panna Cotta this weekend for my mother’s birthday and she loved it! I would love to win a copy of the book for her.

  • Kaely says:

    I’m 30lbs down and with a genetic joint disorder (Ehlers Danlos Syndrome) every pound is sweet pain relief. I sleep better, have more energy, and can’t wait for this cookbook to come out!

  • Tasha Eldridge says:

    The Keto lifestyle, with your help, helped us get pregnant with our third and final baby! Now, it’s time to get back on the wagon and lose the baby weight. I want my two sons, and our daughter to learn how to take care of their body so they don’t struggle like I do.

  • Amy says:

    I started doing keto as a means to end my thyroid issues four years ago and as a bonus, it has made me more clear-headed, sleep better, lose weight and feel more relaxed. I have read your books and blog, and I have cooked many of your recipes. I am amazed at how easy it is to cook the Keto way, and I have adjusted to the one hand cooking style after the birth of my son last year! His birth did a number on my hormones, but living a Keto lifestyle has turned everything back around much to the bewilderment of my endocrinologist. My immediate family now lives this way, and I’m working on the rest of my family/friends.
    Thanks for all you do, Maria!

  • Beau says:

    I am loving keto dieting so far! I eat till I’m full and notice my body doesn’t have the heaviness associated with consuming tons of carbs. I also noticed that when I don’t sleep as much that I’m somehow more productive than on days when I got the same amount of sleep and wasn’t carb conscious. I am learning new recipes. This looks like a great book! Only one week in on my keto lifestyle and I feel like it’s a lifestyle change I can make! I saw your zucchini chips recipe…. Yumm ! I’m going to try and make them soon.

  • Joy M. says:

    I am continuously amazed at what a tremendous resource you are for those of us living a keto lifestyle. Besides losing weight, some of the biggest changes I have seen have been mental. I feel calmer, yet with more energy. My endometriosis symptoms have improved drastically as well.

  • Gela says:

    I found the Keto way of life after I had surgery for PCOS. I was 60 pounds over weight back then. I was embarrassed how my fat rolled over my large scar. How did I get here? How did I let myself go? I found the paleo diet and then Keto. I lost 50 pounds. I still have the last pesky 10 pounds to lose. Getting rid of the birth control pill I was prescribed after PCOS surgery and then going into full blown menopause has made losing the last 10 pounds difficult. Staying low carb has helped me not GAIN the weight I have lost.

  • Erin M. says:

    Wow! That book looks so in depth! I love how there are small picture of the recipes in the table of contents (if I’m not mistaken). I will definitely be buying this book if I don’t win the contest. I’ve been reading your site for a long time (I’ve been doing keto since Aug 2012 and have lost 120ish lbs) and you always have such amazing information. You always back up what you “preach” with statistics and sources. Thank you for all your hard work over the years. I’m sure its been a labour of love.

  • Joule says:

    WOW ! Looks wonderful !
    This is a cookbook that the creator himself could have written….. what we were designed to eat from the beginning ! … which is why the body reacts SO favorably on it. thanks for all you do !
    A blueprint on how NOT to suffer to be healthy ….. just follow the food and the plan….
    LOVE your recipes.

    Not only are you healthier….. BUT ! you are eating like a KING !
    Anyone who has made ANY of your cakes knows THAT !

    Thanks again for saving SO many lives that have created SO MANY new beginnings !

  • Susan says:

    This would make a great birthday gift for me! I can’t tell you how much you have helped me along my path to better health! I have finally broken the obsession with food. It’s a wonderful feeling to leave the house for a run and not worry about taking along gu packets for fear of a “bonk”. I can’t wait to get my hands on your new book! Keep doing what you love!

  • Connie says:

    A couple of years ago, after an extreme stress in my life, my health bottomed out. My blood pressure went high along with my glucose. My joints ached constantly and I would wake several times during the night in pain. My hair was falling out while I was starting to grow a heavy fuzz on my face. I was tired and depressed. I had a steady weight gain that no amount of traditional “diet” and exercise would stop. I gained 30-35 lbs in one year and by the end was starving myself and working my butt off. Keto was my miracle. I am an all or nothing type of person so I went in full force. I lost 10 lbs in the first 11 days. I felt great. The joint pain went away immediately. I really felt like a new person. I lost 50 lbs in 3 months and have kept it off for a year. All the health issues that I had developed have went away. I cannot imagine ever going back. All that being said, I really am not a cook. I have your Ketogenic Cookbook, but Quick and Easy would be a blessing. Thanks to you and Craig (and the kids) for all you do!!

  • Stephanie says:

    I would love to win this! Keto has helped my sleep, periods, and moods. I am looking to somehow detox Mercury too, I hope that keto will help with this once I remove my amalgams from childhood. any advice?

  • Kristy says:

    Hi Maria! Congratulations on your new book! I want to thank you for all you have done for me and my special needs boys! We have enjoyed many of your wonderful recipes and would love to win a copy of this book for some new recipes! Thank you for the opportunity to win!

  • Kim says:

    Hi Maria! I would love this book. I went grain free a little over a year ago and found your website shortly thereafter. You have made me addicted to learning more about eating keto. The benefits are truly amazing and all your advice through this site has done nothing but benefit my life! Every single one of your recipes that I’ve tried has been amazing and last year’s Thanksgiving was all recipes from your site and I had a ton of compliments. I would love to win a copy of your new book, but if I don’t you can bet I’ll buy it as soon as I see it! Thank you for all your time and the sharing of your knowledge for the benefit of all your readers!

  • This book looks like what I need. I have many of your books and have devoured them all. I love the idea of simplicity and try to incorporate it whenever I can. Thank you for all you do to help us along the way.

  • Jessica Randall says:

    Day TWO of my new Keto Lifestyle! I’m ready to go!

  • Melinda says:

    My 19 year old son has had Tourettes since he is about 12, he also has ADD. We homeschooled him up until that time. It took me about a year to find Maria after we began doing an exhaustive search of the internet on any treatments for Tourettes, as the medical community had no answers and offered no hope. After learning that children with epilepsy were sometimes treated with a ketogenic type diet, with success, I found Maria and tried the diet. Since my son’s tics look very much like he is having a seizure, like epilepsy, I thought it couldn’t hurt. The ketogenic lifestyle, and Maria <3 , gave my son his life back!! Within about a year, all of his tics, even the vocal ones, subsided to a point that he and I were both comfortable with him enrolling in our local Christian high school. Do you have ANY idea what it's like for a 14 year old boy to feel normal after thinking he never wanted to be seen in public again? I am so happy to say that my son flew through high school as an honor student and is currently in his first year of college at LSU. I only mention the college because it's a huge, 35000+ university that he would have never had the confidence to attend before. After seeing Stephen's progress, the rest of the family is coming on board as well! Maria & Craig, your work is blessing and changing lives all over ….with all my heart, I thank you both!

  • Caitlin says:

    My husband struggles with Chronic Lyme Disease. When I stumbled among your Ketogenic lifestyle it blew the door open to a new healing approach. Four years ago my husband was literally stuck in bed nearly 24 hours of the day. With help from diet and doctors, he was able to start to get his life back. When I introduced the Ketogenic eating to our family, my husband gained more energy back and was able to come off ALL of his medications. He now lives a Lyme free life and maintains this through Ketogenic living.
    As for myself, I was not expecting anything as we made the switch to a Ketogenic lifestyle. Fortunately for me, I was able to correct hormonal imbalances that I did not know were present. Win-win for our family! Won’t ever go back.

  • Bridget says:

    Maria and Craig you guys are like the YODA’s of the Ketogenic world! You guys rock! Maria, all your cookbooks are scattered all over my house and are the bible of my kitchen!

  • Kathy says:

    Some other keto cookbooks have very complicated recipes that are hard to do with a busy schedule. I would love to have this to simplify meals!

  • Laurie says:

    This book sounds awesome and it’d be lifesaver for me and my two little grandkids will be living with me in a few months. I wanted to feed them very healthy meals. I won’t feel overwhelmed once they gets here. Thank you for your dedication helping us to be healthy again.

  • The keto lifestyle has helped me SAVE money because I simply don’t need so much food in quantity anymore!

  • April says:

    Hi! I am super excited about this cook book! I’ve gone paleo and grain-free, but after my second half marathon I found myself gaining weight. I’ve cut out all “natural” sugars and am trying different options to keep my blood sugar lower. Can’t wait to enjoy food guilt free, knowing that I’m helping to heal my body and gain more health. I was diagnosed with UC a few years ago and through diet and lifestyle have been able to remove all meds! Food can heal, but keto takes it a step further for optimal living 🙂

  • Kathy says:

    Nice looking cookbook!

  • Abby says:

    Hi Maria, the book looks great! Will you make it available via kindle as well? Or is available only in hard copy?

  • MJ says:

    Maria!! yeah to the upcoming launch of your latest “baby”…:-))….I CANNOT wait to add it to our “Maria’ Collection”!!…March 15th cannot come soon enough!!….love ya’ girl! keep up the great work, M.J.

  • Teresa says:

    Ketogenic has helped me to “live” a healthy diet. No more yo yo diet fads. Just clean, healthy eating everyday.

  • Cara says:

    This book looks amazing! I struggling with secondary infertility right now and have been trying to decide if going full ketogenic (rather than Paleo low carb) is the answer. There is so much conflicting advice, but I am drawn to your approach. This book would likely push me to fully commit and focus on the proper keto macros and supplements.

  • Diana says:

    I would love to receive your cookbook. Eating Ketogenically is definitely the way to go. Having great recipes makes it more fun!

  • Becki says:

    I would love to add this to my addition of all the other cookbooks I have of yours!

  • kellyj says:

    I was introduced to your blog by a high school classmate (Amery, WI) in 2013. It took me nearly 18 months of reading your blog and researching keto diets (I’m a physician so science is important to me) before I took the leap to HIGH fat, low carb eating. I have been Atkins, Paleo, low carb/non-dairy, before and was always hungry and needed to do 7 hours of cardio a week to maintain preferred weight. Since Labor Day 2015, I’ve been eating your way and LOVING it. I’ve lost 30 pounds – at near high school weight (I’m 50), I’m not hungry all the time, and I exercise when I want to not because I have to. Thank you so much.

  • Tiffany says:

    I love your recipes and I am excited to see what’s in your new cookbook!

  • Kathy says:

    This looks amazing! Are you going to be offering it in a e-version later? I’d love it in a kindle version!!

  • Martha says:

    Maria- You have truly made eating Keto understandable and easy to follow. Your recipes are simple to make and gave me the incentive to keep improving my health!

  • Linda says:

    Quick and easy would be welcomed. I lost 70 lbs but have hit a wall recently. Thank you for everything you do!

  • Ariana says:

    I’d love to win a copy of your new book, since I have less time to cook these days and end up improvising constantly, and risking more carbs than a planned meal would provide.
    Thanks Maria!

  • Sally says:

    Super excited for this book! Love all the recipes I’ve tried from your blog!

  • Lisa Lilly says:

    I can’t wait for my pre-ordered copy to arrive! My family and I have done so well following your keto approach and I’m excited to have some quick and easy recipes for when we’re having busier times!

  • Amanda Reed says:

    You know I want this book!! haha ^_^ I finally got your last one for Christmas and I love it.

  • Marilyn D. says:

    I’ve bee eating keto style for 6 weeks, since my blood tests showed my glucose levels creeping toward diabetes. Through extensive reading and Internet research, I found your website. Your book looks amazing, and I’d love a chance to win a copy.

  • Lynne says:

    Have been eating keto since June. Trying to make small changes to my ADHD child’s diet in hopes to help him. A simple recipe cook book would be of help with our very busy lifestyle . Congratulations on your new cookbook!

  • Lisa Marie says:

    Thank you for all of your research. I have found it invaluable! I have been on the ketogenic diet since January 1 and I am loving it. This is the first time I have ever been on a diet and had no issues with hunger or food cravings! I have never enjoyed the simple flavor of fresh foods more than I have since eliminating grains and sweets from my diet. I am a pescatarian and have been meeting my protein needs with fish and eggs. Looking forward to your checking out your cookbook.

  • Lisa P says:

    It’s helped me have a clearer brain.

  • McDonna says:

    Love your recipes! Always open your email first when it reaches my inbox. Can’t wait to glean from the recipes of this cookbook. It might be like having Maria in my kitchen! What could be better?! Lol

  • Lori says:

    So excited to see the works of your hands and knowledges go into this beautiful book into the hands and hearts of those who wants to be healthy! If I don’t win this book, when is it up for sale? I would love to have it!

  • TinaMarie says:

    Your cookbook makes my life easier. Thank you!

  • Susan says:

    This book sounds like something I have been waiting for! I have mobility problems – both standing and walking are difficult for me so cooking can be very challenging. I can’t wait to get the book!

  • Jen says:

    In the past I was successful with low carb eating, however I used it as a diet and not a way of life and gained the weight back. I am researching your site and learning more about Keto and have been adapting this into my meal planning and eating, I am losing weight, have more energy and was able to cancel a doctor’s appointment for stomach issues that are no longer there. My husband is now interested in eating this way as well. With our busy schedule this quick and easy cookbook would help us so much!

  • Tonya Gee says:

    I so want this cookbook! It looks great!

  • Andrea says:

    This book looks amazing! I have 3 little boys so I know crazy as well 😛 I have all of your books and love them but this one looks the most up my ally because I need simple! Everyone that notices my weight-loss I send your way! Thanks so much for all you do!

  • Lisa says:

    I would love to have a copy of this book. Anything to make eating correctly easier!

  • Lynn says:

    I’ve been wanting to go Keto for some time now. I’ve followed your post, made a few selective meals here and there, but have always had a reason or 10 to not go 100%. Lack of time is one of my biggest reasons (okay excuses). It looks as though this cookbook might be just the ticket to get started.

  • DonnaZ says:

    I have been eating Keto for 2-3 yrs. Besides feeling SOOO much better, off of prednisone, all inflammation gone-which would all be wonderful enough..BUT to me the best part is the knowing I am eating healthy and helping my body be the best it can be in this world of food choices today.

  • Debra says:

    Hi Maria, I have been following you for some time trying to make up my mind as to weather to go Keto,I do not have any of you books as yet but would love to own one to get me started, I do wont to ask dose you son Kai name have a special meaning? here in New Zealand in the Maori language Kai is a well used word as it means food I thought you might like to know that, another little twist to his name, and my grandsons name is Mykah : )

  • Vivian says:

    Maria, I love your recipes and would like the opportunity to have a copy of your new cook book in my kitchen. I am hoping that I can get healthier eating the Keto way.

  • Brett says:

    Hi Maria!
    Such a shame to need to wait another three weeks to get this in hand – since you have done the work already why are you not releasing it as an ebook for Kindle? I’ve stopped buying paper books, though much nicer to read, the extreme portability and convenience of ebooks allows me to have my entire library at my fingertips wherever I am…

  • patricia says:

    This cookbook looks beautiful. I love your recipes. I have lost 40 pounds and they have really helped me keep my weight off. Thanks.

  • JE says:

    The Keto lifestyle has helped me in many ways but I have to say that your advice on intermittent fasting has really changed my life!

  • Penny says:

    I would love to have your beautiful new cookbook to replace all my other unhealthy cookbooks.

  • Heidi G says:

    I have several of your books and enjoy them all. You’ve changed the way that I think about food. What a gift!

  • Kelly says:

    I would love to win a great book I this!, I need all the help I can get!

  • Jacquie Z says:

    I would love to win your cookbook. Their the best.

  • Lori says:

    Wow! This book looks amazing!!! Struggling with those last 10 pounds & I just KNOW these recipes would do the trick! Keep up the awesome work! I love it!!

  • Dave says:

    One of the biggest things that keto has given me is a good nights sleep. Everything just goes better when you are well rested.

  • Your 30 day program started me on the keto way of eating 3years ago & I have to say I’ve never looked back. I have all your cookbooks & enjoy the knowledge you share through all of them. I’m at my ideal weight & no longer feel ravenous like I did before I started eating the Marua way. Thank you so very much for all you do. Wishing you continued success❤️

  • Helene says:

    Love your cookbooks. Can’t wait to buy this one!

  • Cindy says:

    Maria, I have been on a paleo diet for over ten years. I work in the theater and film industry with long days and not a lot of sleep. I tend to consume a lot of protein powders for convenience. Since incorporating a ketogenic diet, I have a lot more energy and never feel starved. Thank you for this amazing website, cookbooks and creative recipes. You are my trusted go-to source! Thank you!

  • Cheryl says:

    I would love to win your cookbook especially since I have ALL your cookbook books and live the keto way with them!

  • Tina Edwards says:

    Hi Maria,

    I love all your cookbooks. You helped me to help my new husband to lose 60 pounds so easily. His self-confidence has soared since then, which is such a pleasure to witness. I was a single mother of 2 boys for 17 years, and I must admit I get a little twinge of jealousy when I see pictures of your 2 cuties and you and Craig. My boys are grown and I miss those fun days when they were so little. Enjoy them!!

  • samantha says:

    I have ALL your other cookbooks and I live by them! I new one would be WONDERFUL!

  • Donna Smith says:

    I would love to win this cookbook! My husband and I are both diabetic and needed to lose weight. We started eating the Keto way in September and he has lost 35 pounds and I have lost 20 pounds. He is off all of his diabetes meds. This diet has been a life saver, literally! My husband had 3 heart surgeries in 2015 and losing weight was a matter of life and death. We were both surprised at how easy the diet is to stick with because what we eat satisfies us so much. We are kind of in a rut now on what we are eating and getting some new ideas from the cookbook would be great!

  • Larry Lovering says:

    Hello Maria, I can’t tell you how much you’ve done to help me lead a healthier and trim life! I’ve lost 70 pounds since 2013, and am eating so much of the good things and none of the bad things that made me gain weight, get Type 2 diabetes, high blood pressure and high triglycerides. I’m off all my medications and said goodbye to diabetes by going low-carb. Thanks, Maria and I hope to win your cookbook!

  • Laura says:

    will this awesome looking book be available electronically for purchase too?! I would love to have this!

  • Beth says:

    Looks as beautiful as all your other cook books. would love to win it, but will plan on buying to add to my collection of all your books I already have.

  • Janet says:

    The sad truth is I would love to be posting about how a ketogenic diet has helped me but I have looked into it in the past and always felt like there wasn’t enough variety in the foods and just recently found out I am sensitive to dairy eggs and gluten which makes things even harder. I so much want to try to make this diet work for me I would love this cookbook so that it can show me how to incorporate this lifestyle into my daily habits. I struggle so much with insomnia and I hope that starting this way of eating will help me sleep better as it is taking a toll on my daily activities

  • Jenn says:

    Love your site. I’m so happy my friend told me about it and buying your meal plans was best money I’ve spent!

  • Becky gearhart says:

    Oh my gosh ! What a wonderful looking cookbook ! I have all of your cookbooks and love them. This way of eating has changed my life. I know it has helped me prevent getting cancer because I have the BRCA 1 gene mutation. I have also passed on your knowledge to friends and family who love your way of cooking. I have also copied of so many of your recipes from Pinterest and constantly tell people how wonderful your recipes are. I would love to add this to my hectic life and make this way of eating so much easier. Thank you

  • Teresa says:

    I’m so excited for this book to come out. The keto way of life has changed my family’s life for the best! Thanks for the great recipes!

  • Rob says:

    I check out your blog everyday to get recipes, inspiration, and tips. Thank you for your time and effort it takes to keep up your wonderful blog.

  • Thank you, I am at my best at 61 yrs. you inspire me everyday.

  • Meghann H says:

    How has eating Keto helped me? In so many ways that it almost seemed like a fluke…until I visited my family 2 weeks ago (so much stress!) and ate and drank pretty much EVERYTHING. Suddenly my reactive hypoglycemia was back along with the migraines, joint pain, indigestion, gas, bloating, anxiety, irritability, depression, and fatigue that I haven’t experienced since committing to Keto in September. I’m convinced! Nutritional ketosis is the only way I have found to truly be healthy. Thank you Maria for making it 1000x easier!

  • Linda R says:

    I have followed a low carb diet for a couple years now, but recently have been doing all I can to learn about keto. I have your cookbook on preorder, but would love to share a copy with my sister.

  • Sara says:

    This way of eating has helped me be more aware of how food affects my mood and body. I was even told that my gums are in the best health they have ever been in at my last dental exam!!

  • Barbara Petrini says:

    I do not want to win this book. Nope. I want to buy it, because I owe you big time for everything I read on this blog and on Keto-Adapted. Without that knowledge, I would be fat and diabetic. So I want to pay for all your help and I will be buying this book ASAP to add to my growing Maria library.

  • lori najera says:

    Thanks Craig for flipping through the pages. Makes it more exciting! Love Amazon Prime & pre-orders. Thanks!

  • Kristen says:

    Everyone asks, “why do you eat that way if you aren’t diabetic?” My answer is always, “because I feel SO much better!” Thank you for providing the tools I needed to help me feel the way I am supposed to!

  • Kathy says:

    I would love a copy of your new cookbook. I am new to Keto cooking this past year and could use all the help I can get. Thank you for your recipes and all that you do.

  • Cathy says:

  • Karen says:

    I can’t wait!!

  • Jennifer says:

  • Darla says:

    Eating keto has helped me with inflammation, general aches and pains, migraines, and fibromyalgia. Just wish I had someone to cook for me to make it easier but I’m sure this book would help me tremendously!

  • Lori says:

    I am two weeks into trying low-carb, high-fat lifestyle, and am not really missing all the processed carbs!! I am still have a lot to learn about the Keto way. I checked out one of your cookbooks from the library and there are so many great recipes in there, and would love a copy of my own!

  • Joyce says:

    I would love this book. I’m anxiously awaiting its release.

  • Shannon says:

    I’ve been following you for years, but got serious about the Keto lifestyle a couple months ago. It’s an easy, satisfying lifestyle to adopt, and the only thing that got the scale moving downward again. I can cook, but I don’t love it and I am SO looking forward to what this cookbook has to offer someone like me. Thanks Maria!!

  • Julie M. says:

    I would love to win it!

  • Myra says:

    Keto keeps me at my happy weight and with strength. Love it and would love to win this book!

  • Theresa says:

    There are so many ways the Ketogenic lifestyle has helped my family; diabetes, bipolar disorder, ADHD, allergies, headaches, body aches, acne and many more. After 50 years of depression, I have to say my favorite result of this lifestyle is happiness. I never knew you could be happy all the time, even with problems. I do not feel that darkness hanging over me and finally after 3 years living this way, I do not worry about it coming back. Your blog and recipes have helped us so much. We call your recipes “Maria Meals”, sorry Craig! After trying a new recipe, we say “Maria has done it again!” I went 30 days of just making your meals and it was so much fun. Your cookbooks are our favorites. Can’t wait to get the new cookbook. Thanks!

  • MaryEllen says:

    I have been eating the Ketogenic way for a year and a half. I have lost 86 lbs, no more acne, no swelling, my hair has started growing back in (I had lost a lot of hair) and I haven’t felt better in my life! I will never go back to my old way of eating and I couldn’t be happier with the Keto diet! I can’t wait for your new cookbook to come out!

  • Michelle says:

    I would love a copy of this! I’m new to this way of eating, but I started trying to clear up some persistent eczema. I’m not hungry, I’m not counting calories, and I feel better. This is only a win.

  • Paola says:

    I can not wait to read this book!
    Ketogenic lifestyle has made me enjoy eating again delicious food. No eating guilt, having my family eating well and enjoying their food. Having real energy to have a life, enjoying my family and work and sleeping well. I also had noticed my groceries budget is better, making me focus in quality. I am a better baker also thanks to you Maria!

  • Odette says:

    When i look at you and your family ,the saying “When you love what you do, you will never work a day in your life” comes to mind.Thank you for choosing KETO for yourself , your passion for all things KETO has changed so many of our life’s . We have renamed it “MARIAS HIGHWAY !☺

  • Agnes says:

    I can hardly wait for your new book! Keto has helped me to improve my digestion.

  • Joni Teter says:

    I’m excited to see this book. I don’t like to spend a lot of time cooking so I’m hoping this will be helpful to me. Thank you!

  • Janet says:

    It’s been helping me manage diabetes. Cookbook looks good!

  • Teresa says:

    I can’t wait to get my hands on this book! It looks amazing and inspiring. YEA! I am excited for you and me!

  • Sandy DeCoux says:

    Hi Maria ~ It looks like a wonderful book and I would be honored to win a copy ! I have 3 of your cookbooks and have enjoyed making many of the recipes. My favorite (and my husband’s as well) is the Beef Stroganoff. I make my hard boiled eggs in the crockpot because of your cookbook! It is so easy and I always have hard boiled eggs in the frig for a quick breakfast, lunch or dinner depending on my schedule. I am grateful for all I’ve learned through your posts and cookbooks and feel I have benefited greatly from all your research and focus on the keto living. Thank you!

  • Jenny says:

    Hi Maria!
    I am now almost one month into the Keto lifestyle and as I told you after our consultation, I’m amazed at how fast my bloating and water retention subsided! I feel, for the first time in years, that my body is actually responding to what I’m doing in order to try and help it and that gives me such hope. I’ve even managed to get my son to trade his traditional candy for keto sweets that I make for him! Joy!
    I would love a copy of your new book as I am soaking up every bit of keto information and inspiration that I can get my hands on, and everything that simplifies everyday life and cooking is very welcome!

    Thanks again for your support and knowledge!

  • Diane says:

    Maria – I would love to have this cookbook as an added way to make eating Keto that much easier and tasty! Keto has helped me not to have the daily hangry feeling – something I have battled with since I was young. The cleanse helped jumpstart eating keto last year and I see amazing results when I am on track. Your recipe book will definitely help with that!!

  • What a lovely gift! I started Keto about a month ago. I’ve been doing Atkins/low carb for over 4 years now and took off 30 lbs. Keto is helping me take off the last 5-10 to reach my goal. I love it and would love a cookbook to add to my “tool kit”. Thank you!

  • Stephanie Chang says:

    I, too, love cooking and have 2 children. I have thyroid issues but lead a very active lifestyle, being a fitness instructor and high performance driving instructor. I always felt hungry, never fully satisfied, until starting to dabble in the keto lifestyle about 6 months ago. I absolutely love it! It has helped stabilize my weight, reduce my bloating, and gets rid of my bottomless pit of a stomach. Can’t wait for this cookbook!

  • Erica says:

    I have several of your books and would love to add this one to the collection!

  • Diane says:

    Pretty Exciting!!! I love quick and easy. My sisters and I have started this way of eating and it takes some thought and work. Now, it should be a breeze with this new cookbook. Can’t wait to start using it!

  • Arlene Watts says:

    just starting this journey. I think the book would be most helpful

  • Ann says:

    Great to hear another fabulous cookbook will be available! I have made many of your recipes and looking forward to making more !!!!
    I just recently heard your interview on the summit with Cynthia Lamarucciola and your are most inspiring. You made a comment regarding the lines on fingernails indicates carb intolerance. I have been eating very low carb for over a year but still have vertical lines on my nails. Do they ever disappear? Or, am I still having too many carbs? I feel great, sleep well and have no cravings.
    Would love to hear what you have to say about fingernails 🙂

  • Michelle H. says:

    I am new to the keto lifestyle too and would love to win your cookbook so I can cook quick and nutritious meals for my family! 🙂

  • Susanne says:

    Thanks for sharing your opinion on the book. It looks amazing and I would love to scroll through it myself 🙂
    The keto lifestyle really helped me to start accepting myself again and I definitely working on getting to the ‘loving yourself’ stage. It also helped me to enjoy food and cooking more than before – it’s just amazing to see results and feel good at the same time. Will definitely stay tuned and continue this path! 🙂


  • Julia D. says:

    Love your cookbooks (I have three so far) — Keto has been a life saver for me. I’ve never felt better!

    The only thing I CANNOT seem to make well is the mayo. I’ve tried it three times and it just turns into liquid. Not sure what I’m doing wrong but I’ll keep at it! Thanks, Maria!

  • Joie says:

    I own all your books and read them cover to cover and try many recipes. I would love this book of recipes I could accomplish with one hand. 🙂

  • Marilee says:

    Thank you for writing this new cookbook. I LOVE all your books, and they are the only ones in my kitchen!!!

    Keto has helped me keep my diabetes under control!

  • koshie says:

    I’m a team leader on SparkPeople.com and I refer people to your blog ALL . the . time! Your extensive knowledge and ability to share it comprehensively has really helped me understand what low carb/keto is all about and how it works — and that makes SUCH a big difference to me! You’ve helped more people than you know!

  • Suzanne says:

    I’m new at this. It’s been only a week. I have noticed how much more energy I have. My niece got me hooked. She’s doing great at loosing weight. I’m 57 years old and decided I too needed to lose weight. High cholesterol, diabetes, overweight are the big reasons for choosing Keto. Yesterday I took my blood readings and was amazed. It was the lowest it’s been in years, after only one week. Now I find myself looking for recipes everywhere, which is where I found you. Thank you so much. About to try making one of your bread recipes.

  • V. Rock says:

    I have several of your books and have learned so much from all of them. For me, one of the difficult aspects of this lifestyle is the time in the kitchen. This cookbook would be so helpful in that area. When people tell me they would try the lifestyle but they just don’t have the time to spend cooking, I could also use it to show them that you can make quick nutritious meals

  • Denise says:

    The ketogenic diet has helped me reverse several health conditions and get off all medications for them. I still have work to do, but I truly feel this diet is saving my life! 🙂 Thanks so much for all that you do, and all the wonderful recipes and information you share with us every day!

  • Tabitha says:

    Congratulations on your new book. I have all of your others and they are so amazing. I cant wait to check this one out.

  • Karen says:

    I recently purchased your books and am learning about Keto living. I love that your recipes are not just Keto but also healthified. I am trying to switch my teenage son over, He has enjoyed all your recipes that we have tried, but has his own cash and daily buys his own junk food when he is out of the house. I am hoping to get him completely switched to healthy eating this summer when he does not have as much access to the junk foods. (He is 13, is tall for his age but weighs 200 pounds). My husband and I have enjoyed your recipes and the weight is starting to come off. Only about 10 pounds so far, but we are excited by any downwards scale movement…
    Thank you for all your help.

  • krickt says:

    Oh, how I miss when my two were little, with my son on the counter top in his bouncy seat, and my daughter standing on a stool to see what I was doing in the kitchen. They are 18 and 22 now! Dang, how time flies! I thought I pre-ordered this one, a month or two ago, but I can’t find it. Can’t wait to get it!

  • Teresa says:

    It has given me my life back!! Not only have I lost weight but the mental change has been the best part. No more sadness, anger, crying and all the crazy feelings I used to deal with everyday are gone!

    I’m so excited to see this! I have RA, Lupus, Polychondritis and DDD. I was 180# at 5′, that’s a lot! My first book was Keto-Adapted. I thought I knew a lot about LC. Boy was I wrong! I’ve been maintaining at 114-125# since January 2015. My inflammation has improved, I’m off bp, and cholesterol meds, and my numbers are stellar! I have energy that RA and obesity stole from me. My hubs also has lost 45#! He feels so much better. I’m disabled at 48. Not being able to be an RN anymore is heartbreaking. But now I, and a group of amazing people, help hundreds of folks on their journey. I have purpose AND my health back! Ketogenic lifestyle did that for me. Literally saved my life and sanity! It all started with that first book. Thank you!

  • Laureen says:
