This new recipe book features many low-carb recipes in it

One of the things that attracted me to start livin’ la vida low-carb was the fact that you could eat full-fat versions of cheese as part of your weight loss program. When I heard about this for the first time, I thought, “Wow, I must have died and gone to dieting heaven!” Well, it’s true, baby and I like to take full advantage of consuming my fair share of healthy and low-carb cheese.

But one of the unique things I have discovered about cheese is that it is so versatile and can be transformed into many different kinds of dishes than most people even think about. Just take a look at this low-carb recipe from a book entitled The 150 Best American Recipes: Indispensable Dishes From Legendary Chefs and Undiscovered Cooks which is edited in part by famous low-carb cookbook author Fran McCullough.

The recipe featured in the story is for cheese crisps. Using cheddar cheese, parmesan cheese and walnuts, they are a great-tasting low-carb snack for just about any occasion.


1 cup old cheddar cheese, shredded
1-1/4 cups parmesan cheese, grated
1/2 cup walnuts, coarsely chopped
2 Tbsp finely chopped thyme leaves
